EVERY person who belongeth to this church of Christ, shall observe to keep  all the and of the church; and it shall come to  pass, that if any person among you shall kill, they shall be delivered up and dealt  with according to the laws of the land; for remember that he hath no forgiveness;  and it shall be proven according to the laws of the land. But if any man shall com mit adultery, he shall be tried before two of the church or more; and every  word shall be established against him by two witnesses of the church, and not of  the world; but if there are more than two witnesses it is better; but he shall be con demned by the mouth of two witnesses; and the elders shall lay the case before  the church, and the church shall lift up their hands against them, that they may be  dealt with according to the law; and if it can be, it is necessary that the is  present also. And thus ye shall do in all cases which shall come before you.
And if any man shall rob, he shall be delivered up unto the law; and if he shall  steal, he shall be delivered up unto the law; and if he shall lie, he shall be delivred  up unto the law; if he do any manner of iniquity, he shall be delivered up unto  the law, even that of God. And if thy brother offend thee, thou shalt take him be tween him & thee alone, and if he confess thou shalt be reconciled, and if he con fess not, thou shalt deliver him up unto the church, not to the members, but to the  elders; and it shall be done in a meeting and that not before the world. And if  thy brother offend many, he shall be chastened before many; and if any one offend  openly, he shall be rebuked openly, that he may be ashamed, and if he confess not,  he shall be delivered up unto the law. If any shall offend in secret, he shall be  rebuked in secret, that he may have opportunity to confess in secret to him whom  he has offended, and to God; that the brethren may not speak reproachfully of him.  And thus shall ye conduct in all things.

AGAIN, I say hearken, ye elders of my church whom I have appointed: ye  are not sent forth to be taught, but to teach the children of men the things  which I have put into your hands, by the power of my spirit; and ye are to be  taught from on high; sanctify yourselves and ye shall be endowed with power,  that ye may give even as I have spoken: Hearken ye, for behold, the great day of  the Lord is nigh at hand; for the day cometh that the Lord shall utter his voice  out of heaven, the heavens shall shake and the earth shall tremble, and the trump  of God shall sound, both long and loud, and shall say to the sleeping nations, Ye  saints arise and live; ye sinners stay and sleep untill I shall call again. Where fore, gird up your loins, lest ye are found among the wicked; lift up your voices  and spare not, call upon the nations to repent, both old and young, both bond and  free; saying, Prepare yourselves for the great day of the Lord, for if I, who am a  man, do lift up my voice and call upon you to repent, and ye hate me, what will  you say when the day cometh, when the thunders shall utter their voices from the  ends of tbe [the] earth, speaking in the ears of all that live, saying, Repent, and prepare [p.
