    When will Christians get the memo that it's simply not our calling to become Judges over the intimate affairs of bodies or persons that we are not in close association with .
    I agree with you, but the matter was made public by someone in this lady's family, it might not be fair, but it is what it is. I maintain my stance that if the church feels what they are doing is fair and right they should have no problem defending themselves. If they removed her from the "active" membership roll, that should have been made clear at the outset in that letter they sent her, and then we wouldn't have this discussion.

    Still not sure however how their response or the lack thereof makes an iota of difference in the quality of any of our spiritual lives but if you guys deem it relevant then hey

    I think it's just good info to tuck away, who to stay away from when I hit the big 9-0.
