The peacemaking principles

The Bible provides us with simple yet powerful peacemaking principles for resolving conflict

These principles are so simple that they can be used to resolve the most basic conflicts of daily life. But they are so powerful that they have been used to address church divisions, breakdowns in school and tertiary college working relationships, ministry team breakups, divorce and child custody actions, embezzlement situations, multi-million dollar business disputes and negligence lawsuits. These principles are briefly discussed below.

If your situation is one of abuse of power or authority, such as physical or sexual abuse, we suggest you read here.  You may then wish to return to this page which deals with overarching principles for dealing with conflict more generally.
