Should You Join a Church? A listener writes: "I have been listening to your program on the air for about two years. I have been converted since I first heard you. When I was converted I joined the ( - a popular denomination - ) church. I am like you; I don't believe in denominations, but I felt I had to join someplace so that I could have someplace to go to church. Do you think I should keep my membership there?" ANSWER: While we are instructed, in Heb. 10:23-25: "Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; and let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 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" - yet, notice carefully we are not instructed to assemble with blinded, deceived people in the denominations - the instruction is not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together - that is, true Christians who have the TRUTH, who are filled with God's Holy Spirit, truly converted, and WALKING IN THE LIGHT, living by every Word of God.
