103: Expel the Brother! Pt. 1


In the gospels, we read story after story about Jesus spending time with sinners. He ate with them. He spent time in their homes. He hung out with them. Jesus wasn’t afraid to be around sinners. He showed love to them. Yet, in Paul’s epistle to the Corinthians, he tells the church not to associate with a brother who is sinning. He even goes so far as to demand that the Corinthian Church excommunicate a sinning brother. Are the actions of Paul and Jesus in contradiction? Do we deal with sinners the same way we deal with brothers and sisters in Christ who are sinning? What’s the difference? How do we know? Listen as Gavin and Tom discuss this complicated topic. This is part one of a two part episode.
