How should a biblical community respond to one another when redeemed sinners sin? This is my topic for bible study tonight. Here’s the OUTLINE.

  1. TEST CASE
  2. TWO KINDS OF SIN: Omission and Commission
  3. THREE THINGS WE MUST REMEMBER: Everyone sins, everyone needs grace, and the Gospel is sufficient for both our righteousness and wickedness
  4. CONFRONTATION IS NOT ONLY BIBLICAL, BUT IS A NECESSARY EXPRESSION OF LOVE FOR GOD (Leviticus 19:15-18
  5. WE MUST BEAR ONE ANOTHER’S BURDENS, INCLUDING OUR WEAKNESS TO SIN (Gal 6:1-2)
  6. UNREPENTANT SIN NECESSARILY ALTERS THE LANDSCAPE OF OUR RELATIONSHIPS (1John 1:5-11; 2Thessalonians 3:14-15; 1Corinthians 5:5; 2Corinthians 12:20-13:10)
  7. WHERE REPENTANCE IS PRESENT, FORGIVE ALWAYS (2Corinthians 2:1-5; Colossians 3:13)
