Robert Murray M’Cheyne, a God-fearing man who always had the glory of God as a primary concern in his life and in his church, made the following sober and heart-searching observation on the subject of church discipline. He said, “We must take care that we do not regard the teaching of church discipline as a mere academic subject or mechanical procedure. It involves the eternal welfare of souls, the strength and health of the church, and the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.” He goes on to say, “I do not think that you will find any who have witnessed the proper exercise of corrective discipline to its final step willing to joke about it or dismiss it with a cavalier (casual) attitude as some have done.”
