CHURCH DISCIPLINE - 1 Corinthians 5:1-13

My response to the "so-called" brother:

  1. I choose not to tolerate their persistence in sin (v. 1-2a)

            How To Confront - Matthew 18:15-20

  • One-On-One (v. 15)
  • One Or Two Others (v. 16)
  • Tell It To The Church (v. 17a)
  • Treat Him As An Unbeliever (v. 17a)

           When To Confront

  • When they pursue their sin more than their Savior
  • When they are committed to what they want over the Word
  • When their behavior does not match their spoken beliefs
  • When their conduct is damaging to the name of Christ
  • When their sinful desires lead to death

      2. I need to release them to their own destruction (v. 2b-5)

      3. I will protect the purity of the Church (v. 6-13)
