    Church discipline, excommunication, expulsion etc is the ultimate act of restoration. By the time you get to that point, you've presented the gospel several times. Each time exhorting that person to repent and be restored to Christ. If someone is actually kicked out you are telling them the church has no evidence they are saved. If they are lost and always think they're saved, they will never be "restored" instead, they'll wind up in hell.
