The fault in Bible complications is not with God or the Bible, but with men who refuse to believe what God says and think we have to interpret what He says in order to get the meaning. Dake Bible -Mark 11:17 note

World Harvest is meeting online only, and has been for the past two Sundays. Same for Vineyard Columbus.

I don't know of any church in Central Ohio that is still meeting in person. I have received word from several that they are meeting online.

Does meeting online count as meeting?


Matthew 5:19-20 New King James Version
"Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven."

I believe this "survey" to be simplistic and naive at best on so many points. Here is just one example.

Suppose I have a highly contagious disease. Should I come to your church and have faith that I will not infect anyone else?

Well Jesus told 10 highly contagious men to go to "church."

Luke 17:14 When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed.

are you saying you welcome people with infectious diseases into your congregation without precaution?

What would you suggest?

Invite everyone to church unless you have the flu, a cold, tuberculosis, HIV, gonorrhea, and etc. ?

So in other words say to the world - we welcome you to the church - the house of healing - where Jesus saves, fills and heals,... But don't come if you are sick and suffering.

What would you say do?

I suggest I requested an answer to my question not another question.

Old Testament precedent would, to me, suggest that those with contagious diseases be excluded from the general meeting of the church. Perhaps, even some non-contagious conditions.


Matthew 5:19-20 New King James Version
"Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Eating leavened bread during the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
Being uncircumcised.
Giving birth.
Being unclean.
Being a bastard.

There's probably others, but that's a start.
