Conclusion: Elders in the Body of Messiah must at times be reprovers of others by nature of their office. They have more to do than just preach and teach the Scriptures. They are also to correct those who are in error and/or inconsistent in their walk with God. A difference is to be made in the reproofs according to the age and circumstances of the persons rebuked. Elders should know that they are accountable to God as to how they observe the duties of their office. Woe to those that have shown partiality in their observance of their official responsibilities.
