Conclusions:

Discipline, of both instructive and corrective measures, is not only expected by God- it is demanded. Brethren who are reluctant to apply God’s word on the matter are either ignorant or rebellious.

Conclusions:

When discipline is practiced by all churches as it should be, the authority of Christ will be honored and maintained, the church will remain pure as God intended, it will be respected by the world, and the souls of sinful brethren will be regained. It’s that important!
