Matthew 18:15-17
What is the practical application of Matthew 18:15-17?

And if thy brother sin against thee, go, show him his fault between thee and him alone: if he hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
But if he hear thee not, take with thee one or two more, that at the mouth of two witnesses or three every word may be established.
And if he refuse to hear them, tell it unto the church: and if he refuse to hear the church also, let him be unto thee as the Gentile and the publican.

Scripturally, there is a straightforward application. How could it be applied if no one wanted to be any of the two witnesses mentioned in verse 16? Dare I say an unwilligneness to be a witness could be due to respect of persons?

In Romans 2:11 Paul spoke "for there is no respect of persons with God."
