Church Discipline
Church Discipline
2 Thessalonians 3:13-15
Speaker's Picture
Sunday School,  August 4, 2013

Did Paul intend this passage to be a milder form of church discipline? If not, how does this passage mesh with other New Testament passages on this subject? In the instructions Paul gives the church concerning the idle Thessalonians, we are reminded of the importance of Christian admonition and restoration, the goal of the whole process of church discipline.
