Disfellowship Of One Church Against Another
I have been without the Internet for a while. Now have faster wireless Internet. Thank you for your patience.
I am troubled by what I have seen lately among some churches and that is churches dis-fellowshiping believe it or not other churches for things that they disagree about or don't see as Biblical (which usually isn't anything having to do with salvation at all). The questions I have:
Does the Bible give authority for a church to dis-fellowship another church? Where is that authority in the Bible? Is there example of the Corinthian church dis-fellowshiping the Roman church? Why do some Churches think they have the right to do so? Does this go against Christian unity? Do we believe in church being autonomous from each other? Have you seen this and do you have any problems with churches acting in this kind of behavior towards another? What can be done to solve this problem that is occuring between some churches? How can Christians make a difference on this unbiblical practice?
What do you think?
