The Congregation The Club And The Church | cfcindia, Bangalore
"In the Congregation pattern, people are isolated brothers and sisters who do not seek to build fellowship with each other, even though they may have friendship with them. They do not spend time together to build each other up in love. This is how it was under the Old Covenant in Israel.
In such a system, even a husband and wife may not have much fellowship with each other, because one of them is "super spiritual"! For example, say, the wife is overburdened, taking care of the children, while the husband is busy having his "quiet time" meditating on God's word instead of helping her! Such a man has "Congregation" mentality."
