Recently I have had a number of pastors reach out to me asking questions about church discipline. In this episode I share a few of my thoughts on the subject as well as a word of caution based on a painful experience of my own that came out of a church discipline situation.

  • It's biblical, even though we don't see many churches do it today.
  • The goal is restoration…not punishment.
  • Everything must be done in love.
  • Deal with the problem at the smallest level.
    • “Private repentance for private sin; public repentance for public sin.”
  • Membership question: Who are we responsible for?
  • Social media considerations. Be careful.
  • There is a purpose and a point in church discipline!
    • People can experience love, accountability, correction, restoration, and forgiveness through Christ’s family.
