I figured Iíd rather deal with the influence while they were still with me rather than have them deal with it after they left on their own. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didnít. In the end I decided a parent must make decisions in the best interest of their munchkins but how they fare later as an adult is mostly in their own hands.

Friendship in the church life will happen spontaneously. Itís not a negative thing unless or until it interferes with the relationship between members in the Body of Christ which is fellowship. Fellowship means each member gives and receives the same care toward one another. When friendships have a higher priority in the church life than fellowship then there will be problems. In the Body, Christ is every member so there is no higher relationship between members than fellowship.

Thx again,
Brother Drake thanks so much for telling us a little about yourself. And now all is explained : You are not in the local church!!! ... of the Lee verity ... and certainly not in the local church I was in ... nor in the local church Lee started here in America. Your local church is better. Where is it? Maybe I can visit.
Cults: My brain will always be there for you. Thinking. So you don't have to.
