"Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters. One man's faith allows him to eat everything, but another man, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. The man who eats everything must not look down on him who does not, and the man who does not eat everything must not condemn the man who does, for God has accepted him. Who are you to judge someone else's servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And He will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand" (Romans 14:1-4 New International Version).
It is our studied opinion that the most difficult concept of the local church to grasp is that of Christian fellowship. Properly understood, the word "fellowship" denotes interaction of two or more parties in a common task. The word is continually used in the New Testament to describe the active state of participation or sharing in Christian worship and service (see Acts 2:42-47). Fellowship was created by God for the growth of Christians and the church.
The churches of today have seen every conceivable substitute for Christian fellowship, but none of them have been able to accomplish that which God intended fellowship to achieve. Every person has a basic need to find their identity, purpose, ministry, acceptance by others, and encouragement. True Christian fellowship accomplishes this end and answers affirmatively the question of Cain, "Am I my brother's keeper" (Genesis 5:9b). Fellowship helps us to understand and honestly face ourselves and our brothers and sisters in Christ. It makes us concerned enough to help and improve both.
The restoration of Christian fellowship as practiced by the first century church could add tremendously to the spiritual and numerical growth of the church. True fellowship is the difference between "playing church" and being the church.
