Guest Post on Christians for Biblical Equality!
I love your blog!!! Keep writing, please.
I'm currently looking at the origins of "church discipline" as it's used now in evangelical churches. Do you address this in one of your articles, and I just haven't found it yet? If not, I'd love to hear your thoughts on the use of Matthew 18:15-17 for church discipline.
Hi Mandy, and thanks for reading! No, I have not addressed the topic of church discipline on my blog. That's a good topic for me to think about for a future post!
I'll stay tuned :)
Hi Kristen! I'd really love to see that topic addressed as well. I've seen it hurt an innocent family and am experiencing being shunned by the small family integrated church we left (after we left, by the way). I believe God used their mishandling of Scripture to actually protect me from going back into an unbiblical system, but it's hurtful nonetheless.
Ok, the Matthew 18 post is done! It will appear in the Topic Index under "Cultic Christianity/Spiritual Abuse."
