Sinning against a fellow Christian

How we treat fellow Christians is ultimately how we treat Jesus because Christians are members of his body the church (Eph. 1:22-23). If a Christian sins against a fellow saint, he sins against Christ (1 Cor. 8:12). Paul (1 Cor. 3:16-17) promised spiritual destruction to those who destroy fellow Christians.

List some of the ways Christians can sin against one another:

Find the truth about God and become a New Testament Christian. Find out more about New Testament Christianity by running some Internet searches for “church of Christ” and “churches of Christ.” You may also want to visit for Bible study information.

Remember, in order to be saved and enjoy all God’s blessings (not the least of which is salvation), a person must have faith (Jn. 8:24), be willing to repent (Lk. 13:3), and after confessing Christ as Lord, the final step is water baptism (Rom. 6:3; 1 Cor. 12:13; 1 Pet. 3:20-21). Bible baptism is by immersion only (“burial,” Rom. 6:4), and once it is done, heaven puts that person “into Christ” (Gal. 3:27; Rom. 6:3). After proper baptism a person has their sins forgiven (Acts 2:38).
