A fellow over here asked me if I would participate in an online debate about church discipline a few weeks ago and I said I would. For the next few entries, I’ll be putting up his questions and my answers, just in case they might encourage you.

6) Finally on issues on discipline do all CREC churches have to respect each other’s discipline absolutely or do they have appellate rights?

They can discuss what is going on and either respect the other’s discipline or reject it. There is nothing written anywhere that decrees how we work together in these situations. We would be very careful before overturning another church’s discipline. But this would be with any other church, not just CREC churches.
