White blood cells are protectors of the human body, working to fight infection and keep the body healthy. Church discipline is to the church what white blood cells are to the human body. It seeks to restore individuals and the church from the harm that sin seeks to cause it. Ultimately, Church Discipline is God’s way to restore you from sin not punish you for sin.
From Series: “The Living Gospel“
The Corinthian church had no shortage of issues in their midst – their teachings, their relationships, their entire moral system – all had become faulty representations of Jesus. Paul’s response to this church is the same response that we need in our church today, not just behavior modification, but an overhaul of our entire system of thinking. In this series we dig into 1 Corinthians as we learn to take on a gospel worldview, to see ourselves and the world around us through the lens of our new lives in Christ.
