Something that is lacking in today's church is an understanding of Biblical Separation.
1 Corinthians 5:11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such a one no not to eat.
2 Corinthians 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
Today the church welcomes in the unfruitful works of darkness. The fornicator, adultrer, idolater or the drunkard, we have become afraid to clearly point out sin in the church and in fact, we boast about it.
1 Corinthians 5:1 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife.
1 Corinthians 5:2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.
How are we to handle sin in the church?
1 Corinthians 5:5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
I encourage you to download this and burn it to CD. This is a great sermon.
