Fellowship Baptist Church of Coney Island 2929 west 20th Street Brooklyn, N.Y. 11224 Phone: (718)-372-5022 Website: coneyfbc.com Sermon Outline for Sunday, September 28, 2014 Senior Pastor R. Rubino Help My Church is a Prison! (T.G. 16) 1)Text: â€śBrethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.â€ť (Galatians 6:1)
2)Doctrine: Christians are commanded to restore a Brother or Sister in Christ who has sinned. We are to exhibit the fruit of the Spirit while carrying out this command. The Church is not a Prison where guilty people gather, it is a family of redeemed believers. (Galatians 5:22,23)
3)Reasons: Some common objections will be refuted.
1.Taking this type of approach in the Church body would give members too much authority. (James 5:19,20) 2.Any sin a member is struggling with should be brought before the Elders immediately. (Matthew 18:15) 3.Professional Christian counselors should always be consulted. (Matthew 18:16-18)
1.Christians must remember to help a fellow sinner who has fallen. 2.The Children of God must not rejoice in anotherâ€™s sin. 3.Brothers and Sisters in Christ must be as patient with fellow believers as God is with them! (Matthew 18:21-35)
Fellow Sinners. Thank you for that reminder. I often over look the obvious. Pride is blinding.
