I brought this up on another topic on the fundamental forum....but I am wondering....has your church ever practiced church discipline in a biblical way with restoration as the goal...did the person repent or was he/she dismissed from your fellowship? How did it go? I think when it is done correctly it can be one of the most precious things in a church. If your church does not,why not? I've heard a very well known pastor/writer/theoligian state that a church without church discipline is a church without Christ....do you agree or disagree?
