<065> Thesis:   There is a very real "necessity" placed upon those who "believe" to follow the example of Paul's apostolic team. Introduction:   In our last study we saw that Paul "commanded" the Thessalonians to separate from any believer in their midst who refused to conform to the "traditions" he and Timothy and Silvanus had established while they were present with them. We also posited the rationale for this command: a little leaven leavens the whole lump (1 Corinthians 5:6 and Galatians 5:9). This is the typical result of "tolerance" among believers, though it does not have to be that way. Nonetheless, there is no excuse for believers to disobey this "command", as we shall see in our study this evening.
