Word of the Week: Excommunication

November 27, 2018

In our Word of the week, Pastor Nathanael Mayhew define and describes the Biblical practice and purpose of excommunication. This is based on the words of Jesus in Matthew 18:15-18, and as was practiced by the Apostle Paul and the Christian Church throughout history. Contrary to what many people think or believe, excommunication is actually a loving action that is intended to lead a person who has separated themselves from Christ to repentance. It is not about the type of sin, but the reaction to sin that is the problem. Excommunication is the most severe preaching of the law of God and has the purpose of leading a sinner to see the error of his or her way and to be saved. Join us today as we study this important and often misunderstood Biblical, Christian, and loving action.
