The Good Fight
Scripture: 1 Timothy 1:18–1:20
All ecclesiology rises and falls on the faithful administration of church discipline. It is the issue. It is more important than music, modes of baptism, youth programs, nursery, head-coverings, the finer points of polity, and every other ecclesiological issue.
You can be wrong on those things and still be a true church.
This, however, doesn’t apply to church discipline.
It is essential to a church.
No discipline, no church.. at least not for long.
