Example text

It is clear for Calvin that pastoral care and the application of pastoral care are closely connected to sound doctrine, and it is equally significant to understand—based on his previous explanation—that sound doctrine leads to pastoral care as well as to its application in the church. Likewise, when doctrine is  Traditionalism and Radicalism no longer preached in a sound manner, the immediate consequence is the disparagement of pastoral care, which is no longer applied in the church, with consequences that throw the church into a whirl of problems requiring the application of ecclesiastical discipline.

Calvin does not lose sight of the fact that believers are human beings and human beings need to be managed. Church discipline presents itself as a necessity especially because believers are human beings in need of careful management. Calvin resorts to the situation of his own days when he notices that the church then experienced serious plight concerning the way people behaved and led their lives as part of the ecclesiastical body. Thus, Calvin points out that the church is at the brink of disaster, and this situation can be easily noticed because people management is deficient.

Thus, traditional theology is always alert when the idea of discipline and especially the necessity of its application are seen as abnormalities or even absurdities. Contemporary society, for instance, teaches us that we can do whatever we want for as long as we feel we are doing the right thing, so any limitations of our actions based on our own experience can only produce irritability and suspicion. Today’s theology is no longer based on Scripture, as it was in Calvin’s case, but on what we feel and experience; it is no wonder discipline is not an enjoyable issue.
