He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?" - Romans 8:32

Church Discipline?

"What you do is what you're seen like...If you commit a mistake...there is a discipline structure for dealing with people who sometimes go astray. We have a focus & a vision of our path & if you do something wrong we need to discipline you...And you take that as a child who gets disciplined by his father or his mother & you don't resent that because it's necessary...(Without it) then everybody would just do what they want. Then instead of having direction & focus...every member would be going their own direction...there would be no direction, no identity if everybody did his own thing."


- Duke, 18th Street Gang Member (if you decide to watch this the language is foul...as are many other things - quote above is found on part 2)

How is it that the 18th Street Gang come closer to Scriptural principles than the church?
