Shall The Court Decide The Truth?

The New Testament teaches that brethren should not “go to law” (1 Corinthians 6:1) with each other.  If they do, the only part of the Judge is to see that the legal proceedings of the case are followed.  Since the Judge is not to settle the scriptural differences between brethren, then why go to court?  If we allow the Court to render a decision in the matter, then, we must accept and obey his version of the truth.  This would be contrary to 1 Corinthians 6:5, as brethren are to settle their own doctrinal differences!
