For the first time ever, the CBS reality show “Survivor” has removed a player from the game. Dan Spilo was kicked off the show for repeated inappropriate touching. He was warned about such behavior, yet failed to heed the warning. Spilo has been removed from the game, meaning that he will not sit on the jury with the players who have been voted out by their peers.
The Bible teaches that those in the church who commit deviant offenses are to be warned against such behavior. If they fail to repent, they are to suffer serious consequences. We should take this teaching to heart if we are serious about maintaining holiness in the church.
“Warn a divisive person once, and then warn them a second time. After that, have nothing to do with them. You may be sure that such people are warped and sinful; they are self-condemned.”—Titus 3:10-11.
