Fight Club

A Culture of Honor

The moment you became a believer, you became a member of the "FIGHT CLUB." And, the fights are spiritual, relational, and real! So, you had better learn how to "fight right" and "win." Join us this month at Mission Point as we train to fight against our spiritual enemy and learn how not to fight and make enemies of our family and friends. Whether you are just entering the ring, on the ropes, or going down for the count, this practical, biblical, relational, and research-based series will give you the tools you need to become "more than conquerors" in Christ.

The 8 Rules of Christian Fight Club:

Don't fight.

Accept one another.  

See & celebrate the good in others.  

Don't avoid unavoidable conflict.  

Go directly, privately, & respectfully to those involved.

Share your complaint softly.

Listen more than you speak.  

Go for the Win-Win.


…a fighting culture that seeks to always “defend” their “honor.”

…a “kissing up” culture that gives undue or automatic “honor/worship” to individuals.

…a culture where the “customer” or the “company” is always right.  

“Stand up in the presence of the elderly, and show respect for the aged. Fear your God. I am the LORD.”

Leviticus 19:32 (NLT2)

“You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times.  For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!”

2 Timothy 3:1-5 (NLT2)

“Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets.”

Matthew 7:12 (NLT2)

Fear of the LORD teaches wisdom; humility precedes honor.”  

Proverbs 15:33 (NLT2)

“Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

Philippians 2:3-11 (NLT2)

...all of you, serve each other in humility, for “God opposes the proud but favors the humble.” So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor.”

1 Peter 5:5b-6 (NLT2)

Honor your father and mother, as the LORD your God commanded you.”

Deuteronomy 5:16a (NLT2)

“Then you will live a long, full life in the land the LORD your God is giving you.”

Deuteronomy 5:16b (NLT2)

“Anyone who dishonors father or mother must be put to death.”    

Exodus 21:17 (NLT2)

“Be careful to live properly among your unbelieving neighbors. Then even if they accuse you of doing wrong, they will see your honorable behavior, and they will give honor to God when he judges the world.”

1 Peter 2:12 (NLT2)

“It is God’s will that your honorable lives should silence those ignorant people who make foolish accusations against you. For you are free, yet you are God’s slaves, so don’t use your freedom as an excuse to do evil.  Respect everyone, and love your Christian brothers and sisters. Fear God, and respect the king.”

1 Peter 2:15-17 (NLT2)

“Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.

Romans 12:9-10

“These people say they are mine. They honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. And their worship of me is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote.”

Isaiah 29:13 (NLT2)

“Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.

Romans 12:9-10
