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.

    I Don't Know Who I'm Married To!

    Your wife seems to be a habitual lier. You need to take her to a psychiatrist.As long as she loves you, cares about you, committed to you, never think about leaving her. Your wife needs medical attention, she is sick.
  2. My cable operator proviced two tow Christian TV channenls, God TV and Good News TV. I don't like what they show in the TV. Most of the time they will show sermons. I find sermon very boring because the speaker is only interested in delievering, he never tries to engage with the audience. I would prefer a discussion instead of proselytizing.
  3. Radicalism is present every where. Hardliners are all around. We should not judge any ism just because some radicalist and hardliners are there. There are some Christians who are so bad with other people, should we condem Christanity because of them. No, it does not work this way. Some feminist are hardliners, they don't want equality, what they are seeking is taking charge of everything and supressing men. Their motto is "we are being supressed since ages and now men have to pay this." This is bad, this is not feminism. Feminism is all about asking for equality.

    Buried or Cremated

    I have never heard of this third option even though I knew body can be preserved in liquid nitrogen. Why would anyone want to have their body preserved. If they perform cryonics, is that a desire from the dying person or wish of his children he is leaving behind. Apart from burying, cremating and cryonics (as you say) there are other death rituals as well. In Tibet they cut the body parts of the dead body and feed to vultures.

    Praying For Money

    God will give us when he wants to, for example I get this position in a company just because God wanted me to work in the position.If God wanted, would it make any difference whether I asked Him for this position in ,my prayers, or did not pray for the position. So, my basic understanding of prayers is you pray just to keep your mind at peace. You get wnat you actually deserve, for the things you don't deserve, you will never get it no matter how much you pray.

    On hearing God's voice

    Can we actually hear God's voice, I often ask this question to myself. I once bought a bus ticket to another city, however, later I decided that I should stay in the city for the night. Later I heard that the bus had an accident in the high way and half a dozen people died on the spot and over a dozen people were seriously injured. Did God spoke to me that I should not board that bus? What about those people, did they not hear God's voice?

    The Negative Effect of Free Time

    We also use that quote frequently. I have also experienced, when I am alone and do not have anything substantial to do, you will overcome with negative thoughts. When I was smoking, I used to smoke when I was alone and free. When I was engaged, I never felt the necessity of smoking. This applies for people who are not bad in nature. However, those people who are intrinsically bad, will be working to execute their bad plan. For example a murderer does not murder some one just because he had free time, in fact he was keeping himself busy in planning how to kill.

    Prayer for a friend who had a terrible accident

    If the breadwinner of the family becomes invalid, that is a great misfortune. I really hope that this friend of yours will be blessed a healthy long life by Grace of God.

    Prayer for every cancer patient

    I have a good idea. Lets start a crowdfunding campaign for cancer patients. We will ask our friends and family to donate for the cause. We will also reach to influential people through social media. When we have enough,we will donate to the cancer patient who needs the money most. There are people who are dying too soon in absence of proper medical care. We should help them.

    Demonic experience

    Hello David, since you say the stories are from the perspective of demon, I am quite fascinated with this book. I checked the first link and it took me to a pdf copy of the book. I cannot wait to read this book. I will be back when I finish reading this.

    Prayer request for a child who is suffering from hemophilia

    Prayers have the power of healing, however, prayers cannot cure anyone directly. We need to act our own. Instead of relying on prayers we can start crowdfunding for the medical attention of the child. Why don't you start a GoFund campaign. There are people willing to donate money for noble cause.
  12. It is really difficult to manage life when you are torn between the two most loved individuals. You love your mother very much, yet you also should support your husband. Your mother refuses to go with you and your husband is under compulsion to move away. I think the best way to deal with this say "Love you mom, I will miss you," and move away with your husband. Make a call to your mother couple of months later. Should would be of course missing you very much. So, when you invite her to come to see you in your new home, she might easily accept your proposal.

    Prayer for every cancer patient

    We should pray not just for cancer patients. There are other diseases as well that are not curable, Alzheimer, or dementia, for instance. Alzheimer, or dementia patients are in such a miserable state that they cannot even recognize themselves. Two years ago, my uncle died. He was 94 years and was suffering from Alzheimer since last 5 years. He was in a sorry state, but his sons and wife life was equally in sorry state. We should pray for everyone who needs medical attention. Amen

    No God?

    I will go with your idea. The world that we have today survives because there are people who strongly believe in the existence of God. They fear God and they love God. If a person does not believe in God, there is nothing that can stop him. Let us imagine this. If there was no law, bad people will commit crimes and go free. There is law that penalizes them from committing crimes. There is law that tells them doing certain things is not okay. God is supreme law. Good people create good laws because God guides them.
