Passage: 2 Corinthians 2:5-11

Series: 2 Corinthians

1.) The Conditions for Church Discipline

Sin against and individual and church: (Mt. 18.15; Tit. 1.15; 2 Cor. 2.6).
Sin ultimately forces the hand of the church to act: (Mt. 18.16-18; 1 Cor. 5.5; 1 Tim. 1.20).
Paul did not want to exploit the matter: (2 Cor. 2.6; 1 Cor. 14.40).

2.) The Limitations of Church Discipline

2.1, Church discipline not church abuse: (2 Cor. 2.6; Gal. 6.1-3).
2.2, Church discipline not church politics: (2 Cor 2.7; 2 Cor. 12.20; Gal. 5.15-16).

3.) The Aim of Church Discipline

Testing the obedience of the church: (2 Cor. 2.9; 7.12-15; cf. 2 Cor. 9.13; 8.24; 7.15).
Forgiveness and restoration: (Mt. 18.15; 18.33-35; cf. Mt. 12.21-22).
Obedience in all things: (Rom. 1.7; 6.17; 2 Thess. 3.14; 2 Cor. 10.5; Rom. 16.25-26).

4.) The Wisdom of Church Discipline

Paul stood with the judgment of the church: (1 Cor. 5.3-5; 2 Cor. 2.10).
Conquering the devil through vigilance, gospel ethics: (2 Cor. 2.11; 1 Pet. 5.8; Col. 3.12-13; Gal. 5.16-17).
