 "In true Christian fellowship, Christians" gets their fishing poles and goes down to the river. Everything goes along pretty well; till the 'holier than thou' attempts to walk on the water.

Or flips tables.  :-)

I wasn't trying to explain "what" fellowship is but "why" we should fellowship.

And I was trying to explain "what" Christian Fellowship is and "why" we should not fellowship over certain things,  Which included everything from false teaching, heretic practices and outright disobedience and denial of scripture.

 

The OP made it seem that as long as they had "common beliefs, purposes and goals, believe the gospel, and focus on Christ and His desires and goals for us" there was true Christian fellowship.  Without recognizing that some of Christ's "desires and goals" for our correct "fellowship and unity" is that we mark and have not fellowship with those who teach false teaching or teach for personal gain, those who disobey the word of God and those who hold to heretic practices.

 

Through a balance of scriptural understanding do we see that true Biblical Christian Fellowship is based on the words of God, the Holy Bible, not the thoughts and ideas of "desires and goals".  Unity on a false practice, teaching and disobedience to the word of God does not create true Christian fellowship.

 

I hope that some here would not construe that those in the Body of Christ that we should not be fellowshipping with (some named above) are not true Christians.

Ok.  Thanks.  Points noted.

True Christian fellowship is more than what happens in a church building with rituals and ceremonies valuable as that may be.  It can never replace serving God in other's homes and lives.  The early churches met, ate, prayed and studied in each other's homes.

They also fellowshipped in schools, at lake and riversides, in religious buildings, in fields, on mountainsides etc etc etc....

 

The Church is not a building  It is the body of Christ

I am not sure what it is either.  But it is a dog of some sort.

Looks like a cross between a houn'dog, a skunk, and a yoda.
