Last week, several local leaders openly intervened – after private efforts failed – to deal with a few individuals who were trying to dominate a particular fellowship with their false, hyper-grace heresy.
In essence, they kept using grace to excuse open, willful sin in their lives – thus abusing grace, setting a bad example, and tempting others to join them in flagrant disobedience.
Although they refused to repent, fortunately they decided to move on.
Real elders care enough to protect God’s people, rather than let wolves roam among them.
May God raise up more caring shepherds among us.
