The Requirements for Christian Fellowship are few

Thanks to Rodney and Diglot for taking up this issue after some other blogger has taken it upon himself to control other aspect of life. I think Nick is a legalist and has set himself up as a Constantine. If Nick values Tradition Unquestioned so much, then he should be a Catholic or an Orthodox (who by the way, are more open to fellowship than Nick is).

My take?

And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God. For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. (1Co 2:1-2 NAU)

First – humility. Second, that we share the common belief that Jesus Christ was crucified.

Christ. Crucified. Resurrected. Humility.

I will share begin to share fellowship with Christians who recognize the crucifixion of Christ. We can go then as far as we can go with our other views. As I didn’t see any other requirements in Scripture to begin fellowship, I’ll let it stay there.

Fellowship is by the Spirit and I hope that I am led by the Spirit to be with my Christian brothers and sisters even if we disagree over a few simple things.
