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.

    Arrrrr ye celebratin'?

    Arrrr I've only had a drop of Rum you scallywag!
  2. I don't think that anything should be excluded from music when it comes to religion. Except maybe black metal since the lyrics are very disturbing and dark. But other than that, it's the music, I don't think it would do any harm. If you like it, listen to it why not. I am a Christian and I am listening to lots of stuff. Mostly rock and metal music.

    What is love?

    Love is one beautiful emotion that is creating a whole new world for us. The problem with describing love is that, it is a subjective thing, and no one feels it the same way. It is like describing pain to someone, even though we all know how it feels maybe that same pain wouldn't feel the same if it was us who is feeling it. So describing an emotion has always been absurd to me, but it is the best feeling ever so it is also nice to see how others feel love.

    Opinions on College?

    It is true that it is not a formula for success, and that maybe it is not that important to finish a college to make something out of your life, but I also think that depends on the person, and especially the country the one lives in. I think that in any case, it is very good that you are studying and finishing college because, if everything else fails, you will still have your college diploma and that will help you at some point, when you are looking for a job or something like that, even though it is not a guaranteed job or anything.
  5. I would also add now that my computer started freezing randomly since the last Windows 10 update. This happened before as well, and passed by itself. Now, it started again. I really don't know how to fix that, and I see a lot of people complaining about it so, this just adds to everything I said about 10, it ain't that good. Not yet at least. And I am really disappointed because of these freezes.

    Opinions Please

    It's a strange thing to use a "devil" as a mascot for school. But if they don't teach any satanism and stuff like that I guess that it's okay in that case. And maybe it's not just the evil, are there any more details about it, maybe the devil is taken out of the context?

    Do you make money online?

    I made a bit, but not as much as I would like to. I gave up when I noticed it's not a very good income. But I would like to find something that I could do in my spare time and earn some money since I am a last year of my college and now I have a bit of free time and would like to use it for some earnings, but not to lose too much time because of my studies.

    Even though I do believe in some extraterrestrial life, I don't believe in UFOs until I see one. The reason is that I can't accept the fact that in the whole universe we are the only living beings, and yet if we are not you could ask:"Why haven't we met anyone yet then". Well the time is a relative thing, and we don't have the technology they do probably, or they don't have the technology we do, and all the other stuff like that. But UFOs, no, I don't believe anyone has seen one so far.
  9. If you do, which one do you play? And for how long? I play guitar for about 7 years now, and I love it. I have two bands and we are making our own music. It is very fun and satisfying. We mostly play rock music but we are trying to combine other genres as well. Do you have a band? Or do you play solo? What genre is your favorite?

    The Walking Dead

    I don't watch The Walking Dead, at least not yet. I have seen only one episode, and a few scenes with Negan which I liked so I just have to make myself start watching it since he is a very cool villain. I know everyone loves this show but I never figured out why since I am not a fan of zombie apocalypses that much, but I'll just have to see it for myself I guess.

    Favorite Christmas Movies ?

    Home alone definitely. We've all seen it dozens of times and we can watch it over and over again. It's very entertaining and funny, and the kid outsmarting the thieves is hilarious. There are a few others that I like also, but I can't remember at the moment.
  12. I don't think that it is necessary to make anyone believe in anything. If she is a non-believer, then she either didn't have any experience to make her believe, or she is simply not ready for it. You don't have to make someone believe, she will eventually find herself believing or not, but that is not something that you should force in someone. Just let it go, don't thin too much about it and be happy.

    Do you believe in horoscopes?

    I believe that horoscopes are made to be generic so when you read it you can find yourself in it. Of course, that goes for the "general sign" horoscope, not that daily ones. I don't believe in the daily ones because it all seems like they just randomly choose stuff to write about signs for that day.

    How do you beat stress?

    I beat my stress mostly by riding a bike and listening to music. These two things help me a lot with dealing with stress. Especially when I ride solo. Since there is no one there to distract me or potentially make me angry or whatever. Playing guitar also helps me in it, and composing. Sometimes even being surrounded by friends is okay in these situations, literally anything that is distracting you from the pressure.

    Feeling alone

    I try not to think about all the things that are killing me slowly. It is hard, but I manage to do it somehow. I try to be there, with the people that I am surrounded with, because that is the whole point and they are helping me to deal with that struggle. It's actually much harder when you are home, alone, and don't have anyone near you to keep you away from all the bad thoughts and make you feel better. In that case I just play guitar or watch something to distract me.
