We know you brethren long for local church fellowship. We know you need it. BUT, should you assemble by yourselves without a minister whom God has sent to feed the local flock? THIS YEAR hundreds of new members are being added to God's Church. Many will attend the Feast of Tabernacles for the first time this year. They will return home filled with the joys of personal fellowship. Soon they begin to visit with nearby brethren. With social fellowship comes the inevitable desire to assemble on the sabbaths for round-table discussions. Many feel the necessity of social contact with brethren. They equally desire to learn more about the Bible. What could be better than meeting each sabbath for Bible study. it is reasoned! And think of the social fellowship! Immediately some will think of Hebrews 10:25. "We should assemble ourselves together," they will say. But what happens? Wherever groups gather together a dominant individual inevitably arises. By force of personality others begin to look to him - even though he may not understand the Bible as well as they. He becomes a leader.
