    "And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican. Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." - Matthew 18:17-18

    I believe the passage to be related to church discipline and coming against someone that is in willful, unrepentant sin. I believe it to be a declaration that the heavenly authorities will recognize the earthly church's judgment.
    "Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years." - Revelation 20:6

      Very well put. It's interesting that some translations have "will have been bound/loosed in heaven".....
