Is there such a thing as too much fellowship?

Is there such a thing as too much fellowship?

I know the question may strike you as a bit odd at first, but take in to consideration the overwhelming number of fellowship meetings, conferences, conventions, rallies, revivals, singings, homecomings, concerts, etc., there are to choose from. Pick up any Apostolic publication and you can find a listing (at least a pages worth) of different events that month where you can attend.

Im not that familiar with event driven fellowship. For many years fellowship to me was like sitting at a friends house and talking about Jesus for hours on end.

I have seen very little fellowship in Church meetings.

I like your definition the best! This is the kind of fellowship I am used to as well.

I suppose if one could afford to go to all the fellowship/church meetings offered it would be excessive. With guys like me who work a job, limited on cash and time the abundance of these meetings is kinda nice because I can pick and choose what to attend. when I have cash and time chances are good that there is a meeting going on some where that I may be interested in.

Re: Is there such a thing as too much fellowship?

I don't really subscribe to any specifically Apostolic publications but the local Christian radio stations site will show a huge variety of every kind of what you just mentioned... To me those things are more about entertainment than fellowship...

Fellowship is what I get eating lunch for an hour with my Christian co-workers and taking about our struggles and our triumphs... Or going to visit a friend in Christ who is having a tough time and just trying to meet her needs of the moment with prayer and housekeeping.

I get plenty of preaching from Don... and lots of bible study at home... but every now and then I pick something that looks fun... like a concert and get off the farm for a minute

Church does not equal fellowship.

Re: Is there such a thing as too much fellowship?

Dante... I just read a book called "Pagan Christianity" It is written by a guy who believes in organic church, or home church. You might want to read it. It is a fabulous read. I recommend it to anyone who is frustrated with the way the current church system is set up, because it brings to light the reason why there is such a problem in our churches today.

Home church, fellowship with other like minded believers, is really the only true fellowship. Sitting in a crowd being entertained, no matter what they call it... church, camp meeting, convention, concert..... is not fellowship. It is entertainment at various levels.

Sitting down with someone having face-to-face conversation, prayer, testimony, teaching, exhorting... now THAT is fellowship.

Here is the link to the book.... http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/141...=ATVPDKIKX0DER
