The Church Should Be a Hospital

We are called to be a place of healing, not a place of hurt.

If the leader does not listen to you, take one or two others along with you. If he or she still refuses to listen, take it to the church. Matthew 18 goes on to tell us that if the person doesn't listen to the church, then we must treat him or her as an unbeliever.

We must stop being silent in church and we must speak up! The sheep are hurting and we can't continue to stand by and allow this to happen. We need healers in the church, not offenders, and the only way to ensure that happens is to allow only qualified "physicians" to administer the proper medicine.
