Christian 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.

    What is love?

    Poets, authors, artists, philosophers, scientists and anthropologists have tried to define love for centuries. Love is one of the few subjects that has troubled, intrigued and fascinated everyone. What are your views about it?

    Evolution Vs Creation

    The popular media often portrays the creation vs. evolution debate as science vs. religion, with creation being religious and evolution being scientific. Unfortunately, if you don't agree with this label, you too are labelled. Regardless of whether you're a creationist or an evolutionist, if you disagree with the stereotype, you're condemned and "exposed" as a religious fanatic who is secretly trying to pass religion off as science or, even worse, trying to disprove science in order to redeem a ridiculous, unscientific, religious worldview. The fact is neither model of origins has been established beyond a reasonable doubt (otherwise, the theory of evolution wouldn't be called the "theory" of evolution). Whether we like to admit it or not, those of us who subscribe to the theory of evolution do so by faith. And while the recognition of design in biology may have theological implications, it is not based upon religious premise - it's based upon empirical observation and logic.

    Pray for forgiveness

    I hurt my family a lot with my deeds. I ditch them. But now I realized my mistake and they also accepted me like before. I am very grateful to them. But still that deeds of mine are very much in my memories. I am praying GOD to forgive me for hurting my family.

    Praying for peace in the hearts of human beings.

    World is facing threat of terrorism. Terrorism can also be renamed as destruction. Daily we hear news about refugee crisis in Syria and World. Refugees are ill treated to deaths. Human beings being the most advanced species on the Earth should engage to promote peace. I pray to GOD to give peace to whole human kind so that these inhuman activities can be shopped.

    Reincarnation: Is it Real?

    According to my medical studies I never believed in reincarnation. But my grandmother told me that when I was 3 year old I use t tell them about a house in which I was living with my parents. I also tell them about certain places which were actually existed. So reincarnation is may be possible.

    GOD and Karma

    I often come across a saying that As you sow so shell you reap. It is all about karma. You will get everything about your doings in previous births. So it is all about a type of investment. Like we invest in previous birth and got that back in upcoming birth. So basicaly it is us who are responsible for our luck and badluck. So now what is the role of GOD here? Can anyone explain me?
  11. I'm glad you said "transgender" rather than "transexual" because I think the key to understand these folks is in understanding that it's not a sexual thing. We see clear cases of young children identifying as the "other" gender. They aren't doing this to get "kicks", they just identify in their mind as something other than what the exterior anatomy tells us they are. I'll add that I had a high school student last year who was transgender, and I had no idea for about a month. This was a student born with the "male" label, who didn't where female-only clothes, and yet still people would just assume she was a she. Spending time around someone like this just makes it all the more clear that just as sexuality is messier than binary, so is pretty much everything else about us. So now, is she "wrong"? Not in any sense I can think of. Her just being herself doesn't hurt anyone, and it's not even any kind of force-fit to the people around her. Anyone who wants to take issue with her simply based on the unusual way she's been made needs to get their head on straight.

    Avoiding friends who aren't believers.

    No I never do that. I often make friends my ignoring their religion. For me religion is something very personal choice. It should never affect your friendship. So I often have friendship with non believers.

    True Church?

    It's more like the One and True Church gave the world the Bible via the guidance and protection of the Holy Spirit. The Church, through the Holy Spirit, identified what was and wasn't inspired text and compiled everything into one collection known now as the Bible.

    Karma vs. Justice?

    Justice is one of the Great Ideas of the Western world, and, as such, its nature is controversial and there is no generally accepted definition of it. But the first definition given in my Webster’s is “the maintenance or administration of what is just especially by the impartial adjustment of conflicting claims or the assignment of merited rewards or punishments.” Another, related definition is “the principle or ideal of just dealing or right action.” So justice is either an administrative system for certain kinds of problems, or a principle or ideal with regard to our behavior. The word karma, on the other hand, refers, in Buddhism and other religions, to a cosmic law that connects our intentional actions with their ultimate moral consequences. According to this law, every action that we do, large or small, public or private, brings consequences to us that reflect our intention at the moment we acted. Basically, when we take actions that benefit others, then we ultimately experience results that are pleasant; when we take actions that harm others, we experience results that are unpleasant. Nobody monitors or enforces this law; it operates automatically and impersonally, like gravity or magnetism. The doctrine of karma goes along with the doctrine of rebirth or reincarnation. If there were no rebirth, then karma would be unable to account for things such as the death of babies, who have never done anyone any harm, or for the success and prosperity of some evildoers, who enjoy comfortable lives even though they have harmed others. According to the teaching, these things happen because karma “ripens,” or produces its effects, only when the right surrounding circumstances occur. This might happen in our current lifetime, or it might be in some future lifetime. But karma never forgets: the karmic seed, once planted, is always there, and will certainly ripen when the right circumstances arise. For me, and I think for most people, karma represents a system of perfect justice. No good deed goes unrewarded, and no bad deed goes unpunished, which is exactly what we would expect if justice were perfect. Furthermore, the scale of the effect is always exactly matched to the scale of the original action: the more positive the action, the more pleasant and beneficial the eventual result for the doer; the more negative the action, the more unpleasant and harmful the eventual result. And because it is impersonal, it is infallible and not subject to anyone’s whim, bias, or error. There is no problem of administration. So you might say that an effort to institute a system of justice in the world is an attempt to imitate the law of karma on the scale of a single lifetime. But if one is able to believe in the law of karma, the issue of justice becomes less pressing in one’s life, because one realizes that justice, in the widest sense, takes care of itself. Your focus becomes what it should become: making your own actions as helpful and beneficial as possible, and avoiding doing anything harmful.

    Do all religions lead to God?

    I'm Hindu and I love god but many people say only our religion is right which frustrates me. Most of the people here are hypocrites because even though they pray and go to temple, they're still rude if you don't believe what they do. The existence of so many religions and the claim that all religions lead to God without question confuses many who are earnestly seeking the truth about God, with the end result sometimes being that some despair of ever reaching the absolute truth on the subject. Skeptics also point to the existence of so many religions as proof that either you cannot know God or that God simply does not exist. Many people do not want to believe in a God who demands righteousness and morality, so they invent a God who makes no such requirements. Many people do not want to believe in a God who declares it impossible for people to earn their own way to heaven. So they invent a God who accepts people into heaven if they have completed certain steps, followed certain rules, and/or obeyed certain laws, at least to the best of their ability. Many people do not want a relationship with a God who is sovereign and omnipotent. So they imagine God as being more of a mystical force than a personal and sovereign ruler. The existence of so many religions is not an argument against God's existence or an argument that truth about God is not clear. Rather, the existence of so many religions is demonstration of humanity's rejection of the one true God. Mankind has replaced Him with gods that are more to their liking. This is a dangerous enterprise.
