Texts on Excommunication
Jim West is tracing the main historical texts on excommunication. So far he has quoted Zwingli, Oecolampadius and Luther. He presents an interesting argument for the contrast between Matt. 13, the parable of the sower, and Matt. 18:15 - 20. What can I say? It is kinder than being burned at the stake.
