After a person sacrificially, and tirelessly gives their time, talent, and treasures, to building God's kingdom, and then get caught red handed in an ungodly transaction, we should we in the church do? I am not talking about a crime, but something where they did not use discretion. Where they fell into sin (you know sin, the thing we are all familiar with).
As you process this question consider several of your indiscretions, in which if you you got caught red handed, would also land you in serious trouble.
Yes, we need to hold each other accountable and not compromise our biblical values. But what happens after we give the spiritual spanking?
Before you give a punitive based response, let God give you His redemptive based response in Galatians 6:1-2:
"Brethren, even if anyone is caught in any trespass, you who are spiritual, restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; each one looking to yourself, so that you too will not be tempted. 2 Bear one another's burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ."
Christian's let us fulfill the law of Christ, which is AGAPE, as we deal with each other.
