is it bibilical for a church to take away membership


our church is in our pastors home. when my husband and i were living together (engaged), we could attend his church. Franklin Marshall Tees but, he had to ask a man to leave the church because he was dating a woman who was still married but seperated from her husband.^^ and reading the other response . that is so true! plus we all sin every single day! =] so, i dont understand why for your grandmother. but i understand why the man at our church was denied.then again, is all sin the Ed Hardy Caps same?I agree that the notion of ‘membership’ isn’t in the bible. However, this is what the bible says about sin in the church:”If your Ed Hardy Sunglass brother or sistersins,go and point out their fault,just between the two of you. Matthew 18:1517So in essence I suppose that is saying that there can be grounds for removing someone from a church. Maybe someone else reads it differently.Considering church “membership” is not biblical. I say no.However, Franklin Marshall Outlet the basic premise IS biblical, in that according to Matthew 18, if a person has been confronted about their sin and refuses to repent, the church is within their “rights” to excommunicate them.This happened at the church I grew up in. The worship leader (who was married with kids) had an extramarital affair with one of the ladies Paul Smith Wallets on the worship team. They were confronted, rebuked, given chances to repent, and Cheap Christian Audigier they refused. So they were essentially “kicked out” of the church. Removed from leadership, told not to attend there, etc. But they also said that they were welcome to return if they ever repented. It was completely biblical. They followed Matthew 18 to the letter and were totally right in Franklin Marshall Hoodies doing so.The church cannot condone sin or be supportive of a sinful lifestyle.There is also an instance in one of Paul’s letters (1 Corinthians 5) where a man was sleeping with his father’s wife, and Paul rebuked the church for not excommunicating him. He made it very clear that they should remove perpetual sinners (those who make a lifestyle of it) from the church.However, he also made it clear, both in 1 Cor 5 and throughout various chapters and verses in 2 Cor, that the point is not simply to cut people off, but to bring them to Cheap Yves Saint Laurent repentance while still maintaining the purity of the bretheren. We are to not allow “leven” into the churches among those who (claim to) believe, and must deal with it promptly and consistently. But if they repent and return to the church, like the Prodigal Son, they should be welcomed back with open arms.
