Shall we as church members destroy confidence in other church members because they do not meet a certain standard?

“Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil” ( 1 Corinthians 13:4, 5). Troubles exist between brethren in the church because they fail to understand what constitutes true Christian charity, brotherly affection, and Christlike love. Self-love and self-esteem lead professed Christians to measure themselves by themselves. They take for granted that all their surmisings and suspicions of others are correct.

Educational mission opportunity that is coming up shortly will be offered in the English language on the Moriah Heights campus in rural Northern California

Effective mission is based on effective preparation. By God’s grace, the SDARM provides missionary training in various locations around the world and in various languages. Each of these programs seeks to fulfill the opening steps of the Gospel Commission to “Go … and teach all nations ... Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.” In order to fulfill this commission we must “rightly train” those who will enter into the mission work.
