My Seabeck buddy Brad does two very excellent posts regarding restoration of Christ-followers. The first one is here and the second regarding restoration of church leadership is here. Please read them both.
In the 21st Century church-world where we can't quite understand post-salvation grace, on-going redemption, from-the-heart-repentance and Biblical restoration, we need to hear Brad's heart.
And follow his example and advice.
It seems to me that we either make this restoration thing too hard or too easy. And it usually depends on the notoriety of the sinner as to how we make it.
Read what he says and give me a shout.
