Question:

The worship is in spirit and truth. If I donít take part in the fellowship hall activities, would I be in violation of Godís word by worshiping there? I made it plain to the elders I donít believe in fellowship halls.


Answer:

The church in Sardis was not spiritually sound, yet Jesus said, "You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy" (Revelation 3:4). While it is very hard to maintain spiritual purity when others are doing wrong, it isn't impossible. If you have no other choice, then you do the best you can. I've done it and I know several others who have done the same thing when there was no other choice.

Thank you. I feel so much better. I just want to be pleasing to the Lord, and I don't want to waste time doing it. Again thanks. I enjoy your web site, and I am learning so much from it.
