“The NT Born Again & ‘Church Discipline’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (Acts 17:11) And these were more noble = than those of Thessalonica, = in that they received = the Word = with all readiness of mind = and = searched the Scriptures = “DAILY” = to see if those things were so [or Not].
*** (1Jn 2:21) I have Not written to you because you do Not know the Truth; BUT because you know it; and know that -> ‘No Lie’ is of -> the Truth.
*** (1Corinthains 5:1-to-6) It is actually reported that sexual immorality exists among you, and of a kind that is Not found even among the gentiles. A man is actually living with his father's wife!
(1Cor 5:2) And you are being Arrogant instead of being filled with grief And seeing to it that the man who did this is removed from among you.
(1Cor 5:3) Even though I am away from you physically, I am with you in spirit. I have already passed judgment on the man who did this, as though I were present with you.
(1Cor 5:4) When you are gathered together in the name of our Lord Jesus and my spirit and the power of our Lord Jesus are present,
(1Cor 5:5) hand this man over to Satan for the destruction of his flesh, so that his spirit may be saved on the Day of the Lord.
(1Cor 5:6) Your boasting is not good. You know that a little yeast leavens the whole batch of dough, don't you?
What is your Church like…? In all the time You attended, did You ever witness… “The Church Discipline” of a member of the Church…? To your knowledge, has there ever been… “Church Discipline”… practiced in the past? Perhaps that is WHY the American Church is without a… “Witness in its Community”…? Are there any ‘Divorced & Remarried’ members of your “Church?” What does the Scripture say about this…? What about a brother taking another brother to COURT: before Unbelieves in the world…? All of these things and much more: are the “Responsibility & Mandate” for the NT Church of Christ Jesus! The problem is that: those who call the Blessed Name of Christ Jesus & say they are HIS… “Do NOT Obey”… His Holy Word…! The Churches in America have simply become… “A Mutual Admiration Society”…! There is “NO: Fear of God”… in the Churches of America! A lot of Smoke… but “NO Holy Spirit FIRE”…!
Mutual Admiration Society
*** (1Peter 4:17-18-19) For the time has come for the judgment to begin from the house of God. And if it first begins from us, what will be the end of those disobeying the gospel of God?
(1Pet 4:18) And if the righteous one is scarcely saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
(1Pet 4:19) Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls in well-doing, as to a faithful Creator.
*** (Luke 12:5) But I [Jesus] will warn you of Whom you shall fear: Fear Him [GOD] Who, after He has killed, has authority to cast into “Hell”. Yea, I [Jesus] say to you, fear Him [God].
*** (1Corinthains 11:30) That's why so Many of you are WEAK; and SICK; and a Considerable number are DYING.
*** (1Corinthains 3:13-14-15) each one's work shall be revealed. For the Day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try each one's work as to what kind it is.
(1Co 3:14) If anyone's work which he built remains, he shall receive a reward.
(1Co 3:15) If anyone's work shall be burned up, he shall suffer loss. But he shall be saved, yet so as by fire.
*** (Hebrews 12:6-7) for whom the Lord loves He chastens, and He scourges every son whom He receives." [John 15:1-2-3]
(Heb 12:7) If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons, for what son is he Whom the Father does Not chasten? [None!]

Even a casual reading of “1&2Corinthains” will reveal the Problems… within that Church. Have You studied those ‘Books’ and examined the… “Problems & Scriptural Solutions”…? But the Churches today in America have “Bibles” in every pew BUT: with… “Worse Spiritual Problems!” Say it isn’t SO…? In almost any Church in America, you will find from “1/3-to-1/2” have been “Divorced & Remarried” into “Adultery!” [Mark 10:11-12 & Luke 16:18] May I ask a Simple Question…? Why didn’t the Church, with the “Pastors & Elders”… “Address” those Marriage Problems: before the Divorce”…? The Christian [?] Couple [?]… took their Problems TO: Civil Court, before Unbelievers! A Direct “VIOLATION” of the Scriptures! Perhaps You care to read about it in… “1Corinthians 6:1-to-8”…? Or even that of… “Matthew 18:15-to-18” and… “Galatians 6:1-2”… and Many Others! Doesn’t the American Church… believe that they are… “DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE”… to Christ Jesus and His Holy Word…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”…?
*** (James 1:22) Keep on being Doers of the Word, and NOT merely hearers who “DECEIVE” themselves.
*** (Luke 6:46) And why do ‘you’ call Me [Jesus] = Lord, = Lord; and do ‘Not’ do - what I [Jesus] say?

(Gal 6:2) Bear one another's burdens, and so you will fulfill the law of Christ.
*** (Matthew 18:15-to-19) "IF your brother sins against you, go and confront him while the two of you are alone. IF he listens to you, you have won back your brother.
(Matt 18:16) But IF he doesn't listen, Take one or two others with you SO that 'every word may be confirmed By the testimony of two or three witnesses.'
(Matt 18:17) IF, however, he ignores them, tell it to the congregation. IF he also ignores the congregation, Regard him as a gentile and a tax collector. [2John 1:9-10-11]
(Matt 18:18) "Truly I [Jesus] tell you, whatever you prohibit on earth will have been prohibited in heaven, and whatever you permit on earth will have been permitted in heaven.

(Mat 18:20) For where two or three have come together in my name, I am there among them."
These ‘Actions’ should be carried out by the “Pastor & Elders”…! Are the American NT Churches… “OBEDIENT in these RESPONSIBILITIES”…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”…?
How Many CHILDREN would be NOW: living with ‘Both Parents’… “Instead of with ONE”…? The American NT Churches have FAILED: in preserving the “Family Unit”…! Surely they will speak out about “Homosexuality”… But FAIL in their responsibilities to the FAMILY UNITS… attending their Churches…! What is wrong with that ‘Picture”…?
*** (Amos 4:10) I [God] have sent among you the pestilence after the manner of Egypt: = your young men have I slain with the sword, = and have taken away your horses; and I have made the stink of your camps to come up unto your nostrils: yet have you NOT returned [REPENTED] unto Me, says the LORD.
… *** (2Corinthians 7:10) For having sorrow in a godly way results in Repentance that leads to Salvation and leaves no regrets. But the sorrow of the world produces death.
*** (Luke 3:8) Therefore bring forth fruits worthy of Repentance; and do not begin to say within yourselves; We have Abraham for our father. For I [Jesus] say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham: from these stones.
Repentance – 101 Blog [1/6]
Right away there will be “REACTIONS”… from those ‘Ignorant’ of the Holy Word of God! They will “Falsely Claim” that we are… “Not to Judge!” It always amazes me, about those WHO have Claimed to Know JESUS… for a long time? And then NOT know what His Holy Word Teaches about… “Proper Biblical Judging”…! Do You… “Read & Study & Obey”… His Holy Word: “Daily”…? If ‘NOT’… “Why NOT”…? You call “Christ Jesus: LORD”… don’t You? Well then, WHY don’t You know what: “HIS HOLY WORD”… “Teaches”…? NO, I am “Not Accusing” You, NOR am I “Excusing You!” Those WHO are members of the Body of Christ Jesus… “His Church”… are to Care for the Other Members of His Body… “His Church!” How can You do that: IF You do NOT know His Holy Word…? Please tell me…?
… It is “Demanded… by the Scriptures”…. that we “Choose [JUDGE]”… between “Good & Evil”… by “JUDGING”… by Using the Holy Word of God! [John 12:48]
*** (James 3:12) Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? Either a vine, figs? So can NO fountain both yield Salt water and Fresh.

*** (1Corinthains 5:4-5) in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when you are gathered together, with my spirit; also, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ;
(1Cor 5:5) to deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. [1Corinthains 3:13-14-15]
*** (1Corinthains 5:11-12-13) But Now I am writing to you to STOP associating with any so-called brother IF he is sexually immoral, greedy, an idolater, a slanderer, a drunk, or a robber. With such a person you must even stop eating.

(1Cor 5:13) God will judge outsiders. "Put that wicked man away from you."
*** (2John 1:9-10-11) Everyone Transgressing and Not abiding = in the doctrine of Christ [Word of God] = does Not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ; he has both the Father and the Son.
