Jim West and discipline

Jim does a little looking at history. Finds a few cases part1 part2 part3 part4 part5 He ends with a quote from 1774:

“A church of Christ is like a garden or vineyard, which, if not taken care of and this ordinance of excommunication not used, will be like the vineyard of the slothful, overrun with thorns, nettles, and other weeds; but by means of this it is cleared of the weeds of immoralities and the bitter roots of false doctrine are plucked up and eradicated, and withered branches are gathered and cast out.”

Mainly though the posts are too short to have much to comment on. Though Jim seems very interested in the topic.
