The God of all comfort wk 3

Why is Church Discipline Important?

  1. Holds us accountable
  2. Protects the church’s reputation
  3. Helps keep us focused on Christ and promotes unity
  4. The bible tells us so

Now if anyone has caused pain, he has caused it not to me, but in some measure—not to put it too severely—to all of you. For such a one, this punishment by the majority is enough, so you should rather turn to forgive and comfort him, or he may be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow. So I beg you to reaffirm your love for him. For this is why I wrote, that I might test you and know whether you are obedient in everything. 10 Anyone whom you forgive, I also forgive. Indeed, what I have forgiven, if I have forgiven anything, has been for your sake in the presence of Christ, 11 so that we would not be outwitted by Satan; for we are not ignorant of his designs.

  1. We must avoid the better than attitude.
  2. We must avoid growing vindictive and bitter.
  3. We must avoid Satan’s schemes
