A Conversation on Church Discipline

A lot of people have asked me recently about whether it's okay to let a church member undergoing discipline "resign" from membership, just prior to excommunication. This is kind of, I guess, similar to Richard Nixon quitting the presidency when it looks like he doesn't have the votes in the House to avoid impeachment.
My friend Greg Wills, a Baptist historian and expert on church discipline, and I were recently walking into a conference together, and I stopped and asked him about it. Listen to this "Moore to the Point Micropoint" about this issue, and let me know what you think.
