JDV  1 Corinthians 6:1-3

 1 When one of you has a problem with another, does he dare ask the unrighteous ones to decide upon it instead of the holy ones?

2 Or do you not know that the holy ones will decide the fate of the world? And if the world is to be decided upon by you, are you incompetent to decide on less significant cases?

3 Do you not know that we are going to decide the fate of angels? So, why not questions of normal life? (1 Cor. 6:1-3 JDV)

competent to critique

The Lord has entrusted us with the fate of his universe.  So, why would we want to surrender that authority to have unbelievers decide on everyday practical matters between us?  Instead, we should be taking the gavel.  When the church refuses to deal with its own internal problems, it insults the Holy Spirit within us. Such was the case in Corinth, and Paul was infuriated by it.

LORD, give us wise leaders who dare to decide on practical issues in the church.
