  • Fellowship - Not Just Socializing ..

    From here:

    Originally posted by Issachar
    As always, I hope all of us encourage every Christian we know to be more in the Word, more in prayer and more in fellowship ... fellowship being something MUCH more than socializing. Nothing wrong with socializing I suppose, but that is something we put on our calendars ... fellowship is a way of life; a way instructed by the very Word of God.

    It's past time.

    Issachar, hoping ... praying ... the body of Christ being separate from the world, must be as real in practice as it is in His Word.
    and post #3 here and post #3 here and similar in over 20 posts ...

    We must keep in mind, as things of this world get more weird, that there are many of us in the body that are infirm, elderly, dependent on various medications, etc. I would like to see where doctors, dentists, mechanics, carpenters, etc., etc., etc. .. all Christian of course, can work together in community; in fellowship. I just know that there has to be a way.
    The church is on Earth to save souls from a lost world, not to save the world from lost souls.

    Man learns about history, not from history. To learn from history requires wisdom. Cut off from God, he has none, so history repeats; no new thing under the sun.

    Psalms 122:8 For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.

    There is a Christian community, a formal one, called the Alleuia Community that is outside of whatever town in Ga where they play The Masters golf tournament. I went there about 20 years ago when they were hosting a wonderful seminar. I stayed at a hotel nearby and thought to myself how dearly I would love to live some place like that. It is still around. And yes, it can be done, should be done. Sigh.
