Do you take church discipline seriously?

Many professing Christians do not. In fact many (if not most) have never even heard of the concept. Even if they have, it seems that most dismiss the practice as out-dated, unfair, and out-of-place in our luke-warm and laissez-faire culture.

If more Christians did take church discipline seriously, they would be far more faithful in their own walk with the Lord and their churches would not be filled with worldlings, false-professors, fornicators, heretics, and schismatics.

God calls you to take church discipline seriously:

“I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner — not even to eat with such a person…” rather,  “deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.” (2 Cor. 5:11, 4-5)
