We all know that we need to love our brother. We also know that we need to keep an eye on ourselves and our brother. Yet, it is not always easy to decide what to do when your brother does something you feel is not right. But what to do then? It is difficult to decide when should I ignore it for the sake of love and unity, when should I mention it or when should I be as harsh as cutting all ties. Let us do a study to see what we can learn from the Scriptures on this topic.

Many people are, mainly because of the influence of anti-missionaries, convinced that the Apostolic writings are not inspired Scripture. In other words, they do not believe it is the Word of YHVH.
Think about this logically. What does it imply when you make the statement that the New Testament or Apostolic writings are not inspired? It basically invalidates this part of the Bible and reduces it to the level of commentary, stripping it of all authority. This is a problem because if the Apostolic writings are not inspired writings, why do we need it or why do we even read it?
We, however, believe that the Apostolic Writings is the inspired Word of YHVH and will show you why.
In this article, we will focus on the practical aspects of trusting in YHVH aka living by faith. What does it mean to live by faith and how are we to endure when our faith is tested? We shall also share a personal testimony with you as well as some practical advice on how to endure while your faith is tested.
We have come to understand, through personal experience and this study, that not following this procedure of correction, as laid out in Scripture, is equal to not showing love. Not correcting fellow believers does them a disservice. They will happily continue in sin, which will ultimately cause their spiritual death and the loss of their souls to Satan. Is this what you would like for your friends?
