In the modern world, few elements of New Testament Christianity are dismissed as “un-Christian” like church discipline. A recent survey of 3,000 Americans revealed 52% think you can be a Christian with a full worship-life and never attend church services or identify with a local church. 56% do not believe that sermons they hear preached from the Bible have any authority over their lives. And 82% do not believe that a local church has any right to tell them they are not faithful Christians. This may seem perfectly natural and right to some, but it represents a radical departure from the teachings of God’s Word. This sermon is a study of God's Word concerning the biblical doctrine of church discipline and how this doctrine helps us identify the true church in this world of religious confusion.
