Some Christians hesitate to use the courts. Some hesitate all the more to go to court to defend their Christian activities, preaching, and churches. But extreme hesitation to use the courts is not prescribed by biblical injunctions. The apostles set an example by making significant use of the legal process, especially in relation to defending the right to preach the gospel and develop the church, though the example they set included being winsome in relation to the gospel during public conflicts. Jesus' famous statements in the Sermon on the Mount address the problem of revenge and personal retaliation; they do not contradict the example of the apostles.
