Good day friends,
I was wondering about how you guys would address the following situation. There is an individual who has been in fellowship with my church for some time and from my observation has made significant progress in their walk with God. However, recently they have been spreading rumors about certain members that have almost divided our church until the truth of certain matters came into the light by God’s grace, although the seeds of the rumors can still be seen in the actions of a few. There have been several attempts to council and restore this individual but they deny their actions in the face of evidence to the contrary.
Now, I’m all for forgiveness and have personally forgiven them, but to leave such an individual be in my opinion would not be a wise decision. How can such and individual be addressed while showing the love of God to all parties involved?
