1 Corinthians 6:4
1 Corinthians 6:1-4 The Message (MSG)
And how dare you take each other to court! When you think you have been wronged, does it make any sense to go before a court that knows nothing of God’s ways instead of a family of Christians? The day is coming when the world is going to stand before a jury made up of followers of Jesus. If someday you are going to rule on the world’s fate, wouldn’t it be a good idea to practice on some of these smaller cases? Why, we’re even going to judge angels! So why not these everyday affairs? As these disagreements and wrongs surface, why would you ever entrust them to the judgment of people you don’t trust in any other way?

If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.

If you have legal disputes about such matters, why go to outside judges who are not respected by the church?

So if you have such cases, why do you lay them before those who have no standing in the church?
