Matthew 18:17 – ERV

If they refuse to listen to them, tell the church. And if they refuse

to listen to the church, treat them as you would treat someone who does

not know God or who is a tax collector.

At this point the offender (Christian brother/sister) is unrepentant

and unwilling to apologize and reconcile the relationship even

when witnesses got involved. The offended opens the door

to let the church know about the offense. If the offender

still doesn’t want to hear and change, the congregation is

to treat this unrepentant brother or sister as an unbeliever,

denying the privilege of fellowship until repentance comes.

 Humility on the part of the offender will keep the relationship

with the Body from getting to this point.
