Matthew 15:1-2 says’ If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over. But if he will not listen, take one or two others along so that every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witness.
Jesus provides the proper method of confronting, correcting, disciplining and restoring. Unfortunately we don’t follow his method like we should. Reason we don’t do it is because we don’t want to get involved.
Matthew tells us that the offender must first be confronted privately about his or her actions. If the offender refuses to acknowledge and change his or her behavior after being confronted by the first individual. If there is no change this is when you must bring another person along with you. If the person still does not change, they must be released to their own way as a pagan, because they have refused Christ mercy.
This does not mean that people should treat the offender with cruelty. The Church discipline must be carried out with an attitude of humility and love. In our churches today we don’t see or hear much about this, for we would rather cover up the sin and pretend it never happen. Of course doing this does bring hurt and sorrow but it’s best to save that person’s soul then to be worried about their flesh. AMEN
