Gaining victories: staying calm in disputes (6/6)

Venting one’s anger and making a dispute public spoils one’s chances of easily eliminating a conflict. Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider recommends that we shift down a gear.

Fighting evil and overcoming fear and our own weaknesses is the task assigned to New Apostolic Christians for the year 2016. At the beginning of the year, the Chief Apostle issued his motto: Victory with Christ.

Many want to reconcile with their neighbour and straighten things out. But this goal may be unattainable if the neighbour has just been publicly exposed and embarrassed, and opinions and views have been shared with the rest of the world. “This simply will not do!” the Chief Apostle says and recommends that we exercise restraint when it comes to venting our frustration publicly.
