So isn't an actively practicing Christian one who goes to a church by definition?
One of my pet peeves: "The Bible says."
The Bible says a lot of things.
Where was it said, and by whom, and is it contradicted elsewhere, and what does that (gather in fellowship) mean? Are solitary hermit monks not Xtian b/c of that one line?
I searched "fellowship" in the RSV version here and didnt come up with any demands for it to be a True Christian TM.
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
