    When a church member comes under discipline, and a church does not let them partake of the Lord’s Supper, can you instruct me and give me some teaching on how this works? In my mind i think, how can I withhold grace from someone that the elements would represent. Please give me some instructions on how this works.

      We are not withholding grace when we place people under discipline, we are practicing grace by doing what God commanded. In the same letter that Paul gave instruction about the Lord’s Supper, he also commanded to deal with unrepentant brothers and sisters by not fellowshipping with them, “not to even eat with such a person” (1 Cor 5.11-13). God only disciplines His children, and that because of His love for them (Heb. 12.4-11). So discipline is not withholding grace; it is practicing grace! See also 1 Cor 11.32.
