Well put. The idea I expressed above of 'close communion' fits here, I believe.
There is a line in one of the old "end times" movies shown in the 1980's that describes the Conservative condition: For fear of persecution, Christians are careful who they invite to their clandestine worship services. An infiltrator convinces a girl that she is truly a Christian but later reports the group to the Authorities. The girl who befriended the infiltrator walks by on her way to be killed, turns and says "but you are a Christian, one of us, how could you turn us in to be killed." The infiltrator responds very calmly "Anyone can SAY they're a Christian." With the sound of the guillotine in the background, that statement hangs in the air.
