Communion Fellowship: Thesis VI

“Those who become convinced of the partial apostasy of the church fellowship to which they belong and yet continue in it are not among the weak but are either lukewarm, whom the Lord will spit out of His mouth, or epicurean religious cynics who in their hearts ask with Pilate, ‘What is truth?'” (C.F.W. Walther, “Communion Fellowship” in Essays for the Church: Volume I [St. Louis: Concordia, 1992], 213).
