Notice to Elders Concerning Possible Church Discipline: State of Ohio

Posted in Uncategorized by Paul M. Dohse Sr. on October 9, 2014

To the Elders of Anywhere Baptist Church, Ohio:

Regardless of what is stated in your Book of Faith and Order, or any covenant signed by me, The Ohio Revised Code states the following under chapter 2905: Kidnapping and Extortion, and 2905.12 specifically, “Coercion”:

(A) No person, with purpose to coerce another into taking or refraining from action concerning which the other person has a legal freedom of choice, shall do any of the following:

(2) Utter or threaten any calumny against any person;

3) Expose or threaten to expose any matter tending to subject any person to hatred, contempt, or ridicule, to damage any person’s personal or business repute, or to impair any person’s credit;

Please be advised that I have a “legal freedom of choice” to vacate my membership at Anywhere Baptist Church.

Signed,

Joe Grace

    If you find yourself in a possible church discipline situation, issue the above notice to the elders. If they ignore you and proceed with public humiliation, document everything and file criminal charges against them in your local jurisdiction.
