This past Sunday Jeff Stables handed me a Wall Street Journal article entitled, Banned from the Church. The article presented a freakish view into the lives of people who have been disciplined by pastors across the Country in all types of churches. The writer, Alexander Alter, frames the church somewhere between a ravenous monster and an anemic institution trying to scrap together an authoritative stance in the lives its parishners. Frank Turk replies in an effort to create distance between churches that abuse their authority while maintaining the value that expelling people for sinful activity has in the life of a church.
