Should You Leave Your Disobedient Church And Go Where?
The more Jefferson watched many members in Church the more he saw Bible disobedience, cavilier "you can't judge me" attitudes, and strong support to the world (Luke 6:46; John 15:15-15; James 4: 1-10; John 17:9, 14-16; John 18:36-37). Jefferson felt that all his efforts to financially and spiritually help this small church were in vain. Jefferson removed himself from the teaching and leadership board. He also contemplated leaving that wayward "body" of Christ (Matthew 7:6; Mark 9:19).
The "Best" Person to obey when deciding Church matters is Jesus Christ. Jesus is the Leading Head and "Husband" of the Christian Church (Ephesian 5:23).
Jesus made perfectly clear that His Christian followers must be "Filled With (Born Again) The Holy Ghost" And Also Be Obedient To God's Biblical Word (Which Is Truth) (John 3:1-10; John 4:24; John 17:17; Psalm 119:1-5; Acts 2:1-30; John 14:26). God and Jesus Both made perfectly clear that in the "Age" of the Man of Sin (AntiChrist Beast) that "powerful works of "holy spirit" would be a deception of Satan (2 Thessalonians 2:1-17; Matthew 7:13-29).
It is totally foolish to trust in dreams, gifts or powerful works without examining and ensuring that these are in harmony with God's Holy Word (2 Timothy 2:15; 1 Timothy 4:1-16; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Timothy 4:1-5, 10, 14-17; Psalm 14:1-4; 1 John 4:1; John 4:24).
Christian Association Rule Number 1-You should not form close allegiances to any "christian" who isnot filled with the Holy Ghost and Submitted to God's Holy Bible. Such "christians" will not be allowed into Heaven (1 Corinthians 5:11; 2 John 1:9-11; Matthew 25:1-12; Luke 6:26; Matthew 7:13-29; John 15:10-15).
If any Christian shows an unrepentant attitude to obey the Bible they should be shunned (2 John 1:9-11; Matthew 18:15-17; Luke 6:46; John 15:10-15).

Obeying God can be a lonely "walk". Yet this walk is very rewarding and leads to Heavenly Glory. God walks every step with us and He promises to never leave us nor forsake us (John 16:32; John 4:24; Matthew 19:28; Hebrews 13:5-6).
