Biblical Principle: “If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses. If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector." Matthew 18 15-17 (NIV) We recognise it is not always possible or appropriate to follow the biblical principle set out in Matthew 18, but please let us know if you have attempted to resolve the matter this way?
