Synthesis-- Differences of opinion between church members are inevitable. A church with members at the peacemaker stage of faith can draw upon the spiritual gifts of such members to settle inner-church conflicts. Instead of avoiding conflict, church members should use it as an opportunity to put into practice the Sermon on the Mount virtues, which will (by God’s grace) help them to reach the higher stages of faith. The possibility of reaching this state of maturation increases when individuals remain committed to a Christian community instead of abandoning it because of disagreements.
