    Church Discipline for outward sin, a presumed false profession of Faith, or Doctrinal Heresy.

    What will fly on an Internet Forum, under the banner of, "you can't say an individual is lost", will not overrule The Lord's churches from Disciplining for outward sin, a presumed false profession of Faith, or Doctrinal Heresy.

    The fallen must show evidence of having been Granted Repentance and Faith, by God, knowing what they are repenting of, which is their Total inability, in response to The Gospel Message and knowing what they are Trusting in, which is Jesus The Savior.

    The fallen who do not have the testimony and evidence of having been Granted Repentance and Faith, by God, knowing what they are repenting of, which is their Total inability in response to The Gospel Message and knowing what they are Trusting in, which is Jesus The Savior are never candidates for Scriptural Baptism, as the entrance into one of The Churches Jesus Built.

    The fallen who have given a Profession of Faith and do not show evidence of having been Granted Repentance and Faith, by God, knowing what they are repenting of, which is their Total inability in response to The Gospel Message and knowing what they are Trusting in, which is Jesus The Savior, after they have been Scripturally Baptised, as the entrance into one of The Churches Jesus Built, are, then, candidates for Church Discipline.

    Church Discipline for outward sin, or a presumed false profession of Faith, aside; The Lord's Churches are PROTECTED by The Doctrine of Church Discipline for Doctrinal Heresy.

    Granted: "What the word 'church' means,
    what a 'church' of The Lord Jesus is, 'Scriptural Baptism', 'Scriptural Lord's Supper', etc., etc.,
    and the existence and practice of Church Discipline are not the strong suits of Internet Forum enthusiasts.

    Nevertheless, much of what is hog wild spit all over the Internet, regarding 'Bible Doctrines', would be met with expulsion for a True Biblically Organized church of The Lord Jesus Christ, in a hot minute.

    That individual congregation would be insulated and enabled to carry on The Lord's Work, without the lost and/or twisted heretical teachers, who think they know something, from continuing to be a distraction from THEIR WORSHIP of GOD.

    God's congregations are Called to Give Glory to God in His churches.

    Heresy is, therefore, removed from them, after some failed attempts to see repentance and agreement with God's Word, from the Unsound Doctrinal Heretic.

    Plenty of arguments of "oh yeah, my dad can beat your dad" are cute, but God is Jealous of His People, His churches, and HOW HE IS WORSHIPPED.

    God PROTECTS HIS CHURCHES with The Bible Doctrine of CHURCH DISCIPLINE.
