In this audio talk, Tim Lane maintains that conflict offers a redemptive opportunity to deal with your own anger. Lane offers five critical perspectives concerning conflict: 1.) If you have a problem, this is a great problem to have – conflict it’s what the entire Bible is about; 2.) Conflict is an opportunity; 3.) The person with whom you are in conflict is there for a divine purpose; 4.) There will be times when you will reach an impasse in conflict; and 5.) You must get to the heart of conflict. Lane uses James 4 to examine a biblical paradigm for conflict. James 4 covers: 1.) The diagnosis of anger; and 2.) The cure – growing towards godly conflict.
Key Scriptures: James 1:2-4, 4:1-12; 1 Peter 3:7-8
