I could be wrong, and 1517 can correct me if I am, but I think he is referring to those who have absolutely no desire to worship or fellowship with other believers. I don't think he is talking about those that are not able to be part of a biblical congregation, but would like to be.
John, nobody is arguing that church attendance is required for salvation, so quit with the subterfuge.
Now I would like to ask you a question. Do you believe scripture outlines what kind of people we should fellowship with? You have made it clear you don't hold to the false doctrines of the Catholic church. Good. But you are disobeying scriptural commands to fellowship with likeminded believers, and to stay clear of those who propagate error.
Romans 16:17 "Now I beseech you, brethren, Mark them which cause offences contrary to the doctrine which he have learned; and avoid them."
1 Corinthians 1:10 "Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that he all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that he be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment."
Thanks for the response. I believe you are right, I was just saying that it looks as though real persecution may not be too far in the future. For now,here in America the biggest threat to the Church is apostasy in my opinion.
Thanks for the thoughts on liberalism and hypocrisy.
