THE LOGIC OF THE CHURCH
2. One of the qualifications given for an elder in the leadership of the Church is that he must be a man whose family respects and works well with him. Why is this a wise qualification?
3. In disputes among Church members we are told to go to the person alone, if they refuse to settle the matter to go with another Christian, and if that does not work to bring it before the congregation. Why is it wise to use this order to deal with such a problem? (See Matthew 18:15-17.)
4. Jesus said “A new commandment I give you, that ye love one another” (John 13:34). How do the other things we have talked about interact with this command? How are teaching, singing, giving, and the like, related to it?
5. The Church is sometimes referred to as “the family of God,” and numerous references are made to the fact that we are brothers. If this relationship is really developed, what does it do for the membership of the Church?
