Sin, Rebuke, Repentance & Restoration - Leadership Lessons from Jesus
Too often, 21st century Christianity promotes a form of spirituality without holiness. It is personal but without Jesus. Self-serving Moralism void of sanctification by grace. Passages regarding sin like the following one tend to drum up quotations about peace, justice and tolerence rather than simply obeying what Jesus instructs.
"'If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him. If he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times comes back to you and says, 'I repent,' forgive him." (Luke 17.3 - 4 NIV).
