“Forbearing one another in love…” (Ephesians 4:2) Don’t let the Devil trick you into putting anybody down that’s in the church. Even if that person hasn’t been right; even if that person is in the wrong; don’t complex it by magnifying. Some things you just pray about. And if it’s becoming a problem or an issue, then, you bring it to the pastor. Don’t bring it to the whole group if you’re not going to the person about [the issue]. The bible says that you don’t go to everybody else. If they offend you, you go to the person. If you go to the person, and they don’t receive it, then, you get somebody else. Now that doesn’t mean that if you go the person and they don’t receive you, you go get your homeboys. That’s not what that’s talking about. It’s talking about getting some folks that are saved and have a right mindset. When we go to one another, we’re going with objective of restore.
