Church Discipline
1 Corinthians 4-5
October 4, 2009
1 Corinthians New Testament

A man in the Corinthian church is living in sexual sin. Everyone knows about, but no one wants to do anything about it, and on purpose! They think that tolerating sin is an indication of “unconditional love.” In reality, it’s an indication of spiritual immaturity. The Corinthian believers don’t understand that true love is about correction, salvation, and restoration. They are unwilling to do the hard thing of removing someone from the church who is engaged in on-going, unrepentant sin. It’s called “church discipline” and God still calls the church to practice it today. Join Pastor Gary Hamrick as we take a closer look at a challenging passage of Scripture from 1 Corinthians 5.
