What Drake and Evangelical fail to remember is that under the premises by which most Christians are said to "belong" to any group, they also belong to no group because they do not have any formal membership. Just those who come and meet with them.

I think they would have a difficult time carrying on one of their business meetings if there was suddenly an influx of "outsiders" who were clearly Christian such that the majority of Christians present might not simply agree to carry on in the manner that they have been. That is the way they did them in Dallas years ago. Just a quick business meeting at the end of a regular church meeting in which they ask that everyone who votes to carry on the manner that they have been to say "Amen."

What if more would not say "amen" than those who do? They have no basis for exclusion of them and therefore would loose their control.

Unless they have gotten wise and now also have formal membership.
