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
