Christian Fellowship Community Forums

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

 I wonder what happened to former member here on this forum. There seems to be quite a bit.

 Did they just stop posting or get banned or...?

 

 Are there any follow ups to bring them (except the banned ones) back?

To date we've had approximately 2800 registered members and of them 300-400 were banned. Most that were banned are spammers. They are not Christian and are not here to fellowship but to promote product or websites etc.

 

As far as methods in which to entice members to post for the first time or to come back after inactivity we've implemented a News Letter which runs about every other day. The News Letter has the forum most popular topics but a lot of people have elected to not receive the News Letter. If I reach out to those which have chose not to be contacted they're usually upset.

I think some just come with a topic they want an answer for and them just move on. 

 

Of the ones I have seen banned, some were here just to mock and cause disturbance, some were  crazy as a loon.  I seen grace given over and over again and if a person was banned they earned it.
