Friendship and Fellowship: Friends of God! — 5 Comments

  1. What is the difference between friendship and fellowship? Friendship is a condition whereas fellowship is a company (unity). From E. Bagwell

    Vine makes an interesting observation on the difference between a fellow (Gk: hetairos) and a friend (Gk:: philos). He says, “This (hetairos), as expressing comradeship, is to be distinguished from No. 1 (philos), which is a term of endearment.” Thus, one can maintain friendship (endearment) with one with whom he cannot maintain fellowship (comradeship or partnership); or else a Christian could have no friends outside of Christ. Even one’s joining with the local church in withdrawing fellowship from a brother does not mean that he is withdrawing his friendship (2 Thess. 3:15); though the circumstances calls for not keeping company with him. (1 Cor. 5:9-13; 2 Thess. 3:14). Neither friendship or fellowship need be the basis for the other.
