Who gets to decide? Who gets to judge?

Art


Does the 'Church of Christ' your family go to practice 'church discipline'?

If so, then it should not be such a strange concept to you. Here is an explanation of it.

http://bible.org/article/church-discipline

In every case I've seen this done Art, it is some gross sin that is destroying a family or business man ripping off people and then playing Mr. Christian on Sunday morning. For example, someone finds out that a Christian friend is committing fraud, a crime, adultery etc...

If Christians don't try to clean up themselves then how they heck can they have an impact on the unsaved?

If we did not call Christians like that to task, then the outside world would call us hypocrites. So we practice 'church discipline' and get called judgemental instead. lol

To some people, you can't win either way. Such is the nature of things.

I did not become a Christian in order to win any popularity contest. I converted because God called me and I had no choice.
