Fellowship to which all Christians are called
DescriptionThere is only one Christian fellowship outlined in the Scriptures. We read, God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of His Son Jesus Christ our Lord." (1 Cor. i. 9).
THE EARLY CHURCH.
For one brief moment, following the formation of the Church of God upon earth on the day of Pentecost, the early church recognised and knew no other fellowship than this, and walked in the unity of the Spirit in its practical manifestation. Alas! Declension, division, worldliness soon set in, ecclesiasticism without spiritual power became rampant. For centuries the professing church of God was marked by the ignorance, superstition, deadness and idolatry of the dark middle ages. Then came the glorious Reformation, too soon, alas! To be shorn of its spiritual force, when it looked to political power for support, and placed its confidence in princes.
Algernon Pollock gives clear counsel about the biblical basis for Christian fellowship. He draws from the New Testament, which describes the primitive pattern of the early church, and shows how the original God-given order is to be followed and that the true basis for Christian unity is to be enjoyed by believers today.
