15) If your brother wrongs you, go and show him his fault, between you and him privately. If he listens to you, you have won back your brother.
16) But if he does not listen, take along with you one or two others, so that every word may be confirmed and upheld by the testimony of two or three witnesses.
17) If he pays no attention to them [refusing to listen and obey], tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a pagan and a tax collector.
Matthew 18:15-17 (Amplified Bible)
I have been thinking about this since yesterday’s post. I have read this passage in most translations. The amplified seems to be one of the most impartial.
I am interested in hearing your thoughts and experiences regarding this passage. I will withhold my own thoughts until tomorrow because I don’t want you feeling like you have to agree with me.
Go ahead, make my day. :)
