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.
