Yep, I agree. You have real reason to be concerned there. You know people hold Bible studies all the time, informally in their homes. They don't have to ask for permission from anyone. This was the way the early believers did things, as there was no Church - a Greek word in the Bible that just means gathering, from ecclesia.

No one should get between you and your desire to share the true Gospel with others.
Please pray for "the least of these" in the Persecuted Church Prayer Forum at top.
Acts 21 Now they have been informed about you that you continually teach all the Jews who live among the Gentiles to turn back from and forsake Moses...Therefore do just what we tell you. With us are 4 men who have taken a vow upon themselves. Take these men and purify yourself along with them and pay their expenses [for a temple offering],...Thus everybody will know that there is no truth in what they have been told about you, but that you yourself walk in observance of the Law of Moses.
