How should a christian be treated when he/she subccumbs(gives in) to sin and is discovered?

The situation which involved the Ambassador disturbed me greatly. I will not repeat what is rumored to have happened, I will however, share that I can only imagine the pain that his family is experiencing. Why was it necessary to embarass him or his family? What happened to the church that forgives and counsels one to until repentance is reached? What happened to the love that we as a church were instructed to display one for another?

Talk to me! Tell me your thoughts on the subject?

The situation with The Ambassador disturbed me also. We really don't know the full story and I dont think it matters. What bothered me was how his "bothers" publicly embarrassed him. If they were really his brothers, I feel they would have been there to hold him down in his time of great need. Where is the love. I Could never do my family like that.
Me either. I know that God deals with all of us secretly. But even when He(God) sent Nathan to David. After David had put Bathsheba's husband on the front line. Nathan delt with him privately. David did a big one..but God was setting the example for how things should go. How we should treat those of the Household of Faith..
The church is "suppose" to be there like a spiritual hospital, To lift you up when you are feeling down or have done something wrong and you have repented for. The members of the church are "suppose" to embrace you and not embarrass you. Cause we all need each other to hold ourselves accountable to the word of GOD. That is just how I feel about that.
We love to take scripture and twist it. And we wonder why people don't want to be apart of the christian movement. Because we are some hypocritical. We teach that GOD is love and that we serve a good of love but where is the love in putting your brother on blast before the whole world.
Yes, that is a good way to look at it. The scriptures do teach us that the Kingdom of God is to be a spiritual hospital. We are to be the nurses, orderlies, and doctors. Using the gifts of the spirit to encourage, build up, and instruct those that are in need of help. We are to cast out devils from them that are being oppressed of the devil and restore them that have been damaged by the world.
There you go! I like how you but it even though I said the same thing. I agree with you 100%. We all need to be there for one another at our low point and high point. Like the scripture says.

I think that we shouldn't show a person who has given into sin any hatred and shouldn't gossip about them, but instead show them a loving, caring attitude. we as Christians shouldn't run the person away from church but just be there for them. Then eventually they will repent because not only God loves but the people of the church loves them and they will still feel welcome and that along will make them get their selves together.
