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 http://www.abiblecommentary.com 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).
