overweight diabetes and obese children is an epidemic in this country
I cannot speak to you about your generation
I understand what you’re saying, of course.
But my question more pertains not to the alcoholic (who needs to repent), but to which sins are to be addressed in regard to church discipline?
Only the sexual sins? Only drunkenness sims?
As an aside, I actually do think it affects the rest of the members when some sins are given a pass and others are not.
of course it would belike it would be a mistake to assume so without more evidence.
Firstly thank you for addressing my actual question.. I think that's where the Matthew 18 process is great because one who's got a relationship with another believer, is close and has developed trust can go to their brother or sister in Christ, in love and simply say, "Hey, I notice this..... and I'm concerned for you. What's going on, how can I pray for/help you?"
Perhaps it's more a sign of the times,.........
We see more and more and more children who are becoming overweight by the time they’re in their mid 20s they are going to have horrible knee and joint issues. This is not a loving or benign things to let your children indulge in or develop habit of with food
I live in Midwest
Maybe it is more prevalent here than in Alaska
Absolutely. Also speaking from experience SSRI's make you more hungry in general. It's common to be on one of them.Perhaps it's more a sign of the times,
So much stress, conflict, depression.... everyone is eating for comfort.... and then they stress about eating .....and eat more.
This is real life here.
It’s always been made a. Joke “let’s all pig out”
Food is good, it just is. And it’s a temptation to indulge every time.

So is this how it’s supposed to work? Not a corporate thing?
I’ve only ever seen some marital issue addressed as church discipline and I really only heard about after the fact.
Never anything else so I don’t have any firsthand experience with it.
