The Cave City Baptist Church in Kentucky is sending out letters to people informing them that they have been be kicked out for not attending.
Senior Pastor Ryan Broers told WBKO that people who have not attended church have broken fellowship with God:
A lot of the people that the letters were sent to are not attending church anywhere, and this was kind of a wake-up call to them you’ve broken fellowship with God, you’ve broken fellowship with this church, you need to come back and repent and get your relationship with Him.
Broers failed to note any Bible verse to back up his action, but claimed the letters were sent to members who had not attended the church in, at least, the past year:
These are people that we haven’t heard from, they’ve received multiple letters inquiring about their membership.
Broers said the church will add anyone back who requests it:
If anyone wants to come back, they’re welcome to come back. There’s no hard feelings towards anyone that received the letter.
I preach the truth, and sometimes the truth hurts and steps on people’s toes.
