The accused was brought to justice by the accuser who are represented by their own lawyer before the judge of the court. After the presentation of the circumstantial and corroborating evidence, the accused was found guilty beyond reasonable doubt and was sentenced to life imprisonment.
What was common about the above scenario is the fact that the accused, the accuser, the witnesses, the lawyers and the judges are all members of the same dominant religion.
1 Cor 6:1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?
1 Cor 6:4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.
1 Cor 6:5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?
The Church must resolved all issues concerning their members. Handling the fate of the brethren to outsiders who are not members of the Church are prohibited in a Christian way of life.
Eccles 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
Mt 10:22 And ye will be hated by all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
Bringing therefore your brother/s to an outside court for judgment rather than to the saints of the Church is a no no for Christians.
1 Cor 6:7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?
And who wants to be defrauded? Are they not all Christians?
Prov 19:17 He that hath pity upon the poor, lendeth to the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again.
Mt 18:5 And whoever shall receive one such little child in my name, receiveth me.
Mk 9:42 And whoever shall cause one of these little ones that believe in me, to fall into sin, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.
The commandments whatever it is, should be followed up to the last breath of every Christians believing that doing good beareth good fruit.
Mt 13:23 But he that receiveth seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; who also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some a hundred fold, some sixty, some thirty.
It is pleasing to God if we love each other and care for each other.
Ps 133:1 A Song of degrees of David. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
But for the wicked and the recidivist members, this is what we should do.
1 Cor 5:12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do ye not judge them that are within?
1 Cor 5:13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
