"Don't forget the assembling together.." yada yada

Don't even get me started on verses (Verse-itis is deadly) that we think mean one thing, but actually mean something different (even opposite) in context (see : I am in sin if I "avoid the appearance of evil"  and of course Christians will be left behind)...

Hebrews 10:25 must be colored by this context and message, and therefore the point is that believers must not withdraw from a local congregation due to spiritual weariness or fear of persecution. -Full article
