OFTEN WHEN CONFRONTED WITH THE REALITY OF A CROOKED CHURCH, MEMBERS
WOULD EXCUSE THEMSELVES, BY CITING THEIR SPIRITUAL GROWTH. submit

My Response
I do not, for one moment, suggest that you haven't grown. In fact, I agree.

- Randy Watters of RandyTV, for instance, grew so much spiritually (while with the Jehovah's
Witnesses), that he eventually grew out of them.

- Steven Allan Hassan of Freedom of Mind Center, grew so much spiritually (while being Assistant
Director of the Unification Church), that he grew out of them.

- The Protestant Reformer, Martin Luther (1483-1546), grew so much spiritually (while being a
Roman Catholic Professor), that he grew out of them.

- Likewise, Richard Bennett of Berean Beacon Ministries, grew so much spiritually (while being a
Roman Catholic Priest), that after 22 years he grew out of them.

In fact, ANYONE (whether saved or not) "grows" to some degree. Some grow up. Some grow old. Some grow fat.
Some grow tall. Some grow wise.

It's not a question of growth. It's a question of obedience to Scripture:

"{9} I wrote unto you in an epistle NOT TO COMPANY WITH fornicators: {10} Yet not altogether
with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then
must ye needs go out of the world. {11} But now I have written unto you NOT TO KEEP COMPANY,
IF ANY MAN THAT IS CALLED A BROTHER BE A FORNICATOR, OR COVETOUS, OR AN
IDOLATER, OR A RAILER, OR A DRUNKARD, OR AN EXTORTIONER; WITH [sunesthio] SUCH
AN ONE NOT TO EAT. {12} For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? DO NOT YE
JUDGE THEM THAT ARE WITHIN? {13} But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore PUT
AWAY FROM AMONG YOURSELVES THAT WICKED PERSON." (1 Cor. 5v9-13, AKJV, p.506)

"Ye shall observe to do therefore as the Lord your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn
aside to the right hand or to the left. Ye shall walk in all the ways which the Lord your God hath
commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your
days in the land which ye shall possess." (Deut. 5v32-33, AKJV, p.91)
