Community Fellowship

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.

    Everyone that conspires together to take the life of the innocent. Don't care if it is the husband, woman, or doctor. Enemies of God seek death but we seek to suffer life in Jesus Christ.

    Please let me introduce my brother in Christ, @FalconMan, we enjoy taking both political and theological liberals Snipe hunting. If you're a political or theological liberal feel free to contact either FalconMan or I through PM. We'll set you up for a tour of Big Sky Country in search of the Snipe. The Snipe is a majestic creature 'round here parts' with an innate sense of righteousness which has a tendency to allude everyone to this day.

    YHWH has blessed my wife and I with a number of beautiful, fun and funny criitters to live with us. Sugar Bear, the female Tundra Wolf, some idiot had smuggled into CONUS and then, before it was 90 days old, broke a couple of it's ribs and left it in the Hot Summer Woods of SE Texas, yep, Sugar Bear was, by far the sweetest of the bunch, guarding my wife night and day. If a Vet or any other Assisted Person enters the Sanctuary with their life partner... allo is good! A pouch in a purse or on the pew/floor otherwise? Judge, as we are commanded in Matthew 7 to do! Do they worship their Lord the dog or someone else? The issue is, will we get up off of our patooties and do as our LORD commands?

    I do not believe there is a simple answer.. It has been legal for so long now . I also see a difference between a grown woman and a high school girl. The lies that the child is only a glob of cells are believed.. I would not hold the women/girls guilty who have had abortions accountable to a new law,. The moral law is between their repentance and God, I am speaking of human law. To my thinking if Roe v. Wade was over turned tomorrow from that time on, yes arrest her and the butcher for murder.. As for Roe v. Wade IMO the SCOTUS , with the support of Congress over stepped it boundaries in that decision.

    Mat_26:26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. Mar_14:22 And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body. Luk_22:19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. 1Co_11:24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. Not some preformed what ever.

    Some parents choose cars, boats, big houses, "MY CAREER" TVs internet. over the spiritual welfare of the children. I knew a family of 7 kids 3 girls 4 boys they lived in a 2 bedroom house . Girls had a room boys had the other parents slept in the sofa hid-a-bed they did so so the kids education. Putting God first in a Christian family I believe He would provide the means to educate the children. In reading the OT we see over and over how bringing in those they conquered into the house hold destroyed the the Israelites. As Christians we should be united enough to help out our brothers at a time of real need. Educating Christian, Covenant, of what ever label should be priority. Deu 4:2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you. Deu 4:9 Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons' sons; I am guilty of sending my kids to public schools.

    I hope I wouldn't be the one asked to do the clean up job if it relieved himself/herself. This place ain't Noah's ark.

    Amazing, but is right to take your pets to church? I’ll accept a Care Dog if the person is blind.

    God is omnipotent. That means he has the power to do whatever he wants. But the Bible tells us there is one thing he can’t do which you or I or any other human can do easily. So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath,so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. Hebrews 6:17,18 ESV This doesn’t just say that God doesn’t lie; it says that he can’t lie. In spite of this many Christians accuse God of starting his revelation of himself, the Bible, with a series of lies. Most people today believe that the earth is 4.5 billion years old. The Bible says God created it in six days. If the earth is really billions of years old then God lied about its age. If God lied in the first chapter of Genesis how can we trust anything he says in the rest of the Bible? Some try to eliminate the contradiction by saying that the days of creation aren’t literal days but long periods of time. The word “day” has many meanings and sometimes it does refer to a long period of time. Working together with him, then, we appeal to you not to receive the grace of God in vain. For he says, “In a favorable time I listened to you, and in a day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:1,2 ESV “Day of salvation” does not refer to a 24 hour day but to the period of time when the opportunity to be saved is available. If you read Genesis 1 carefully you will find that this interpretation does not apply to the days of creation. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day. Genesis 1:5 ESV Each of the six days consisted of an evening and a morning. That means that each lasted for one rotation of the earth. The belief that the earth is old came about because most scientists assume that the natural processes going on today have always gone on and that God has never intervened. If you accept that belief you must believe the earth is billions of years old. But if that assumption is wrong then all of the conclusions based on it are also wrong. In order to interpret the scientific evidence it is necessary to correctly answer one question: was the universe created by God or did it come about by natural processes? There is a way to find out which answer is correct and that is by examining dinosaur fossils. If God had no part in creating the world that means the fossils are millions of years old, but if the Bible is correct the fossils are a result of the worldwide flood in Noah’s time and are only about 4,500 years old. Some dinosaur bones contain tissue that is still soft. In 2005, a team of scientists led by paleontologist Mary Schweitzer published a paper in which they described an unusual femur (upper leg bone) of a Tyrannosaurus rex. While the outer bone was completely fossilized, the interior regions were somehow sealed off from fossilizing fluids. Inside the T. rex femur were intact blood vessels and red blood cells. Once freed from the bones, the blood vessels could be stretched—and even snapped back into place! The paper produced a storm of media and scientific attention. At issue: the T. rex fossil is believed by evolutionists to be 68 million years old. How could these biological structures survive intact? Shortly after, Schweitzer and her colleagues made more headlines with a second paper. This one described intact proteins from the T. rex femur. The problem: laboratory tests and theoretical research have shown that proteins similar to those seen in the T. rex fossil degrade too quickly—even in ideal laboratory conditions—to survive for more than a few thousand years. https://answersingenesis.org/dinosaurs/bones/two-those-not-so-dry-bones/ This proves that the bones cannot be millions of years old as most people believe. This evidence is ignored or explained away by those who are unwilling to admit that God is our creator. The belief in an old earth is so much a part of our culture that even many Christians are convinced it is true. They don’t realize that any Christian who believes in an old earth is not only rejecting scientific evidence but is also calling God a liar.

    So you're suggesting that Christians are never in need of charity? Since you asked Jesus this and the answer you claim is from him please provide the Scriptures to back up you claim. If you cannot are we to take your word about it and write these things down? That is, unless you suggest that what Jesus says needs not be written down? I take it you believe the Canon is not closed and Scripture is being written today? Perhaps you can perform some miracles to authenticate your office? So am I. Are you aware of that the Pentecostal/Charismatics are a denomination/movement which are the most exploited denomination in Protestantism? And what gifts are you speaking about? Waving hands as if you're in a Woodstock concert? Perhaps unbiblical holy laughter? Have you ever slayed someone in the spirit punched another in the gut or kicked a dying man in the area he has cancer like Todd Bentley? Maybe you babble like an imbecile and call it a tongue? Or maybe you translate by lying to others as to what that gibberish meant? Do you do those things as Pentecostals/Charismatics teach and do? No, you don't know that. And I find your statement completely unacceptable on this board. Moderators will address you and your response. Likewise, I feel total frustration towards a collective body that rejects sound theology. Without orthodox theology they have idolatry and blasphemy. And that's your problem. You place experience above Scripture. If you lie and get ahead in life should you lie if lying goes against what Scripture states? If you say no because Scripture says so and takes precedent over your experience why don't you follow the principle of Sola Scriptura? Perhaps if more Pentecostal/Charismatics placed Scripture above experiences they'd be more sound and less deceived by con artists. For example: Should a person believe that they are forgiven without doubting though they may never feel or see it (experience)? Proverbs 3:5 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding". The fact that Innerfire uses Scriptures and teaches Sola Scriptura and not tradition is proof that he is biblical. God bless, William
