Selfishness, anger, resentment, retaliation...

Too often we succumb to these reactions, without thinking, when people sin against us. Even when we realize this is not how we should respond to family members, neighbors, fellow believers, co-workers, or enemies, the question arises: how should we respond?

Jay Adams say there's a better way, as described by the apostle Paul in Romans 12:14-21 This practical exposition of that passage explores the nature of our warfare with evil and lays out the path to victory and peace.

Here is help for and insight into everyday conflicts for ordinary believers, church leaders, and counselors.
