Kick Some People Out!

Here is James Jordan's take on one of the key messages to the seven churches in Revelation 2-3. After reading through these chapters again, I agree with him. 

“Jesus has one overall message to all the churches [in Revelation]: you need to kick some people out! The message is that church discipline must be exercised and exercised without qualms, or else Jesus Himself will come and do it—and that is not a desirable outcome! (James Jordan in The Vindication of Jesus Christ, p. 34-35)

Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds, let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind the kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron. Psalm 149:5-8
