Agreement in Doctrine and Practice

A selection from a letter written by C. H. Spurgeon, July 20, 18??, to someone who had inquired about a church member who had been directed to find another church or face discipline because of his annihilationist views.

We, as a church at the Tabernacle, cultivate fellowship with all the churches of our Lord, although within our own membership, we have a basis of agreement in doctrine and practice, and where a member differs from it, it is his duty to remove to some other community where his views are held, or else he must expect us to withdraw from him.
