INTRODUCTION:

I began developing this page to give me some guidelines with regards to fellowship of believers.  While Scripture is clear on the need or requirement to fellowship with other believers (Hebrews 10:25), it is also clear on who one should NOT have fellowship with.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES:

  2 "Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:"  (KJV)

  7 "Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked."  (KJV)

15 "He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD."  (KJV)

24 "And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:"  (KJV)

25 "Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching."  (KJV)

  9 "Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son."  (KJV)

10 "If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:"  (KJV)

11 "For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds."  (KJV)

  9 "I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:"  (KJV)

10 "Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world."  (KJV)

11 "But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat."  (KJV)

12 "For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?"  (KJV)

13 "But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person."  (KJV)

20 "But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils."  (KJV)

21 "Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils."  (KJV)

22 "Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?"  (KJV)

23 "All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not."  (KJV)

14 "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?"  (KJV)

15 "And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?"  (KJV)

16 "And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people."  (KJV)

17 "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you."  (KJV)

  6 "Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience."  (KJV)

  7 "Be not ye therefore partakers with them."  (KJV)

11 "And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them."  (KJV)

 1 "This is a true saying, if a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work."  (KJV)

 2 "A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;"  (KJV)

 3 "Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;"  (KJV)

 4 "One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;"  (KJV)

 5 "(For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)"  (KJV)

 6 "Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil."  (KJV)

 7 "Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil."  (KJV)

 8 "Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;"  (KJV)

 9 "Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience."  (KJV)

 10 "And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless."  (KJV)

 11 "Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things."  (KJV)

 12 "Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well."  (KJV)

 13 "For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus."  (KJV)

16 "But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness."  (KJV)

23 "But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes."  (KJV)

24 "And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,"  (KJV)

25 "In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;"  (KJV)

26 "And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will."  (KJV)
