Excommunication, Dissociation, and 1 Corinthians 5

Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 5:11, “But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler—not even to eat with such a one.” These words have elicited several different interpretations. In this episode, Glen Clary leads us in a conversation about church discipline, and specifically, the nature and appropriateness of disassociation from those under this form of discipline.
