Thank you again for making comments to this post. I see the points you guys all make. I am the loner type I know this much, but I also sincerely wanna help people. I used to help people in a way, but it only helped them dig themselves deeper. Now I am trying to focus on a way that helps people get themselves out of the hole. It has drawn some attacks on me, but honestly it doesnt matter. However, I found in my travels that fellowship was far different from anything I had before known. Please anyone reading this even if you think yourself unworthy or small please comment. No word in Christ is small in my eyes.

I agree with the others that being on this forum is one form of fellowship. A simple way to put it: "fellowship is the people you hang out with".

It isn't the quantity that matters the most, but the quality. If the people you fellowship with the most with are not Christians, then I would say there might a problem. Being a loner is not wrong...lot's of people are loners, and don't require constant company. Some do, some don't. I would just say when you do want company, to seek out other Christians. Just IMO...

When I hear about people talking about fellowship, they are usually referring to a social life with people who think like they do.

Thank you Okie and Bud. I see your insights. Honestly in the short time I have been here (couple days) many of the threads are some of the strongest conversations I have had. Far be it from me to keep my own post going, but I hope more people add to this. I look to the Eternity in Christ and I have so much more to absorb and learn.
