1 John 5:16-17 in the church, when a member has committed a sin it is the responsibility of the fellow brothers and sisters to help this member to repent and turn to God again. As a church, the body of Christ we kindly correct a brother or sister who has committed such sin in the church and help them to repent and turn to God again. We do this so lovingly to show that we care about them and we want them to repent and turn to God to continue receiving God’s love.
