We see this meaning in the NT in Acts 19 (esp. 39 & 41), where it is used to refer to an unruly assembly...
Please don't bring up that because of what we have been going through many have not been able to go to church... I am talking about those who have left church because of splits, divisions, doctrinal disagreement, unrest, problem in the church between members and by their own decision left church all together...
