    2 Thessalonians 3:14 And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. Some brothers in Christ might not have all the answers to the Word of God, but if that brother is willing to pervert the Word of God, then we must have no company with him. We still have to love and pray for him in the Lord.
