Quotes to Consider:
John Calvin on I Corinthians 5:6b: "That [the
church] might not think that it was a matter of little or no importance
that they gave encouragement to so great an evil, [Paul] shows the
destructive tendency of indulgence and dissimulation in such a case. He
makes use of a proverbial saying, by which he intimates that a whole
multitude is infected by the contagion of a single individual."
Anonymous: "The fashion now is to tolerate
anything lest we gain a reputation of being intolerant. The
tender-minded saints cannot bear to see Agag slain (see I Samuel 15), so
they choose rather to sacrifice the health of the Church for years to
come by sparing error and evil; and this they do in the name of
Christian love. We are under obligation to disturb all seats of
wickedness, and where this is done out of a sincere love for God and
men, great good is bound to follow. No true work of God will suffer from
the prayerful examination of Spirit-filled men. Timidity masquerading as
love has allowed useless forms and unscriptural practices to persist in
many a church till they have slowly smothered the life out of it and
brought it to desolation ... We must not be afraid to inquire. The
difficulty, of course, is to do this in a Christian spirit. It is hard
to find fault without being a fault-finder or to criticize without being
