GALATIANS 6:1     Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted.

EPHESIANS 4:1-3      1     I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to have a walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, 2      with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, 3      endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

2 TIMOTHY 2:23-26     23     But avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife. 24      And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, 25      in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, 26      and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.

TITUS 1:9        holding fast the faithful word as he has been taught, that he may be able, by sound doctrine, both to exhort and convict those who contradict.


1 TIMOTHY 5:20      Those who are sinning rebuke in the presence of all, that the rest also may fear.

TITUS 1:13      This testimony is true. Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith,

TITUS 2:15      Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you.

2 TIMOTHY 4:2      Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.

2 CORINTHIANS 13:10       Therefore I write these things being absent, lest being present I should use sharpness, according to the authority which the Lord has given me for edification and not for destruction.

ACTS 15:37-41 NKJV 37      Now Barnabas was determined to take with them John called Mark. 38      But Paul insisted that they should not take with them the one who had departed from them in Pamphylia, and had not gone with them to the work. 39      Then the contention became so sharp that they parted from one another. And so Barnabas took Mark and sailed to Cyprus; 40      but Paul chose Silas and departed, being commended by the brethren to the grace of God. And he went through Syria and Cilicia, strengthening the churches.

GALATIANS 2:11,13-14 NKJV 11      But when Peter had come to Antioch, I withstood him to his face, because he was to be blamed;.... 13      And the rest of the Jews also played the hypocrite with him, so that even Barnabas was carried away with their hypocrisy. 14      But when I saw that they were not straight forward about the truth of the Gospel, I said to Peter before them all,...
