Forget about the
past - God is more concerned about our future than he was about the past.
The just shall live by faith
God wants to restore
Christians to fellowship when they have fallen into sin
How do we then
restore someone to fellowship?
- Don't diminish the sin - identify the sin but don't make kite of it.
- Avoid the temptation to witch
hunt - don't go looking for what is not visible.
- Don't ignore the sin - we
must take steps to eradicate
- Don't hastily expel a fallen
brother or sister - don't exile a fallen member - determine the difference
between the one who does not want to repent from the one who has simply
fallen and needs restoration
