Learnt some good stuff recently from from Romans 14 (on responding to disagreements in church and misunderstandings):

(1)Accept other believers
(2)Recognise the sincerity of other believers
(3)Remember that God's judgement is the only one that counts
(4)Don't let the liberty we have cause others to stumble in their faith
(5)Don't let that liberty destroy the church
(6)Learn when to keep your mouth shut (elaboration in James 5)

I think this is something we all need to pay attention to . Most of us aren't that tolerant and need to be willing to learn from others. Perhaps even those who we disagree with ....

This is really important read John 17:20-23.
