What the Bible says about Threats & Intimidation

According to the scriptures, the Pharisees and Sadducees used threats in an effort to prevent the disciples from preaching about Jesus. Threats were used to intimidate them because no justifiable reason was found to keep them in jail.

In addition, the apostle John wrote disapprovingly about an individual who threatened to throw Christians out of the congregation. This man was using this intimidation tactic to prevent Christians from associating with brothers in the faith. Unfortunately, after hundreds of years, the situation is practically the same today in many Christian congregations. Yet, the Scriptures state that those who have authority must be careful how they use it. They will have to answer to Yehovah for how they exercise leadership.

  • Nevertheless, in order that it may not be spread abroad further among the people, let us (the Sadducees) tell them with threats not to speak anymore upon the basis of this name (Jesus) to any man at all (Acts:4:17).

  • So, when they had further threatened them, they released them, since they did not find any ground on which to punish them and on account of the people, because they were all glorifying God over what had occurred; for the man upon whom this sign of healing had occurred was more than forty years old. (Acts 4:21-22)

  • And now, Jehovah, give attention to their threats, and grant your slaves to keep speaking your word with all boldness (Acts 4:29)

  • Also, you masters, keep doing the same things to them, letting up on the threatening, for you know that the Master of both them and you is in the heavens, and there is no partiality with him. (Ephesians 6:9)

  • But Saul, still breathing threat and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest. (Acts 9:1)

  • That is why, if I come, I will call to remembrance his works which he goes on doing, chattering about us with wicked words. Also, not being content with these things, neither does he himself receive the brothers with respect, and those who are wanting to receive them he tries to hinder and to throw out of the congregation. (3 John 1:10)

  • When he was being reviled, he did not go reviling in return. When he was suffering, he did not go threatening, but kept on committing himself to the one who judges righteously. (1 Peter 2:23)
