He also talked eloquently about mingling:
"But I [say], that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils." 1 Cor 10:20, KJV

"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?" 2 Cor 6:14

"Fellowship" I take to mean any association with non-believers on their "turf"- a house decorated for the holidays e.g.

BTW I appreciate the thought in your signature

"Where two or three are gathered together in my name,
there am I in the midst of them." Viola! Church!
(Matt 18:20 (KJV))

and I know I'm a newbie, but I wonder about "Viola". Is she your wife or girlfriend? Or did you mean perhaps "Voila! [We're in] Church! :-)
