Rejecting Disruptive People

by: Angeline Lawrence, Host
Walking with God can be a lonely path at times. I know God will never leave us, but having a brother/sister in the faith we can relate to is priceless.  Occasionally, we will connect to other believers that seem to be our friends, but in reality they are more like “Frenemies” who seek to gossip about us. 

Today, I want to talk about rejecting individuals that are self-serving trouble makers.  We can all identify with the “busy body,” who will chase the sincere believers away because of the confusion they cause. 

II Thessalonians 3:6 states, “In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers and sisters, to keep away from every believer who is idle and disruptive and does not live according to the teaching you received from us.” (NIV) Oftentimes, letting go of close relationships can be difficult. Especially when it is a person that you consider to be a friend. However, it is important to stay clear of individuals who keep up confusion. They are not about working on our Father’s business because they are prying in the business of others.
