A member of my church has been arrested and charged with indecent exposure by a member of the local PD's Vice Squad. Both step 1 & 2 of Matt.18 have been followed. My question is "Should the member be brought before the body in absentia?" He has refused to admit guilt, denies the charges and refuses to come before the body. In my opinion the body should be informed in order to withdraw fellowship. I would like to hear your opinion in regards to this incident.
