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.

  1. Regarding those with arguments of people being born with female hormones, I think they're being misled by their feelings. Why am I saying this? The feeling you've got for being a gay isn't because of any female homones or anything of that sort but the spirit of homosexuality which lives in you. Of course, there are female hormones in every man but the male hormones must outweigh the female ones. Likewise the ladies/women. All these things including homosexuality have a spiritual basis which many people overlook. Because of the human weaknesses, people try to make sin a lifestyle: defending it all cost. As a gay, what you should know is that being a gay isn't normal. It's the spirit; the spirit of homosexuality which lives in your body and is gradually destroying your soul. If you still don't see anything wrong with it, then it means either your soul has already been destroyed or your soul's senses are dead. But remember, it isn't too late for you!

    Praying For Money

    I couldn't agree with you [email protected] I think if one serves God well, one will get what one deserves. It means first of all, one must put in enough human effort to merit that thing before going into His presence to ask for that favor. For instance, during examinations, you don't expect to sleep all the time and end up scoring 100% as against someone who studied thoroughly all the time. So, I think the human effort aspect should be covered before you go to ask Him for that favor(money). I believe God's grace is already abundant for one to win with, it's just a matter of playing your role first. Remember, He helps those who help themselves.

    No God?

    I think what makes people think there's no God is that they perceive Him as a limited entity. And, they view knowledge as unlimited and unfolding everyday. So they think like this, "I f God is a being(limited), how comes He controls so much knowledge(unlimited). So therefore, He doesn't exist, or even if He does, He's not the one in control of all knowledge and things. Let me tell you today that, God isn't limited, so don't perceive him as limited. That's why it's said that, you can't fully understand him and His ways aren't our ways. People are experiencing Him everyday, so if you haven't, never say He doesn't exist.

    How Does Gay 'Marriage' Hurt Us? Here's How.

    Personally, I think the issue of legal sin stems from the fact that many people ignore the spirituality of sin. Sin destroys the soul. It makes you become vulnerable to Satan. Satan on the other hand is a roaring lion seeking to destroy your soul already, and will never ever pardon you. The more you sin, the more power and dominion you give to Satan in your life. He(Satan) will utilize any power you give to him to the max. This explains mysterious accidents and disasters that occur of late, leading to the loss of the lives of many. Those definitely are the works of Satan and is due to the power people gave to him(Satan) through sin.

    Praying For Money

    To me I think someone who really understands the principles in the good book hardly lacks. Even he lacks, a good Christian knows how to ask from God. I don't think asking for money directly is wrong, but how you ask it. A good Christian knows how to ask from God. I think the reason why most people usually ask for such favors from God but to no avail, is that they don't know how to ask it from God.

    How Does Gay 'Marriage' Hurt Us? Here's How.

    Jesus Christ came for the sick, not the healthy. I think we should quite welcome them into the society and teach them to understand where they've gone wrong, instead of condemning them outright. Most of them aren't into it by will, but due to certain circumstances. Homosexuality is definitely wrong. Please stop quoting people to defend your actions. It's not too late, you can still change and become an effective Christian. Don't view Christianity as a sect in the believers' society, but a prudent way of life.

    How Does Gay 'Marriage' Hurt Us? Here's How.

    Do homosexuals really know there are evil spirits all around us, of which homosexuality is one? Do homosexuals really think homosexuality is a normal lifestyle not only in the Christian society, but in life? These are questions I usually ask myself. Well, the answer lies within you. Let me tell you today and now that, spiritually it's not normal to be a homosexual. Ask yourself this question now, What do you enjoy from homosexuality most? Is it the companionship of your gay partner or the "excitement" you get when bedding with him? Listen to yourself closely, and you will find it very difficult to point to any one of the mentioned reasons or any reason in particular. This should tell you that it's just "that urge", and you know it, "that urge" that drives you to do it, and not any other reason in particular. Sometimes, the urge is so strong, you feel like an animal (inhuman). Other times you feel the urge isn't normal because it's so inhumanely strong anytime you see a guy with just little lady-like features. That "urge" my brother isn't normal, it's the spirit of homosexuality. This isn't a story, it's real and it exists. If it's normal, ask yourself why you can't stop. Every addiction is a spirit which could either be good/holy or bad/evil. Is homosexuality a holy spirit? Listen to yourself closely and answer honestly. :D

    Leaving vengeance to the wrath of God

    I beg to differ a bit my good friend. Personally, I don't think God punishes sinners but satan. Likewise, I think vengeance is said to be of the Lord's because in reality we're actually required to forgive other people's offences against us, not take them to courts. Because, its only in forgiving that we're forgiven. Then of course you don't want your prayers answered. This is because in my understanding, grudges we hold against people kind of block certain blessings from reaching us. The Judicial and other systems in my humble opinion, are only in place to ensure law and order in our society. This goes a long way to promote adherence to God's commandments and stuff.
  9. Let me clarify something now, being gay isn't normal at all. If you really understand who Satan is, you will understand some of the schemes he's using to destroy man, of which "Gayness" is part. The bible categorically states in John 10:10 that "the thief cometh not, but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly". Satan and all his plots and schemes will actually destroy you eventually, if possible lead to your death. Satan hates you in a way you(gays/lesbians) may probably not understand. Today, Satan wished you dead somewhere in the streets, but you're living because of the abundant grace of God. The second God lifts his grace off you, bet me you will be lying dead somewhere almost instantly: that's how much Satan hates you. Today, many people see the bible and it's commandments and stuff to be a burden. Dude, it's for your own good!! For instance, if God says "do not partake in stealing/robbery" and you go against that and get caught and get thrown into prison, the holy spirit isn't going to do your jail term for you, neither is Jesus Christ. You doing it alone!! The same can be said for gayness and other like stuff. I think we all gotta wise up!!
  10. People being turned away from hospitals depends on the economic condition of the country the person finds him/herself in. Countries like the US, England and other economically developed and self-reliant countries have policies in place to cater for these issues. However, non-developed and economically dependent Countries constitute examples of the above menace. This clearly indicates that there is a gap that should be bridged between the rich and poor in this world of ours. If you mean hospitals in these economically dependent countries should treat people for free, then you're seeking the collapse of these economies: as there are no such policies to cater for these situations...this is the reality in the human world!! This rings a bell, which is that people must rise and fight for their future by working hard: strike the balance between Christianity and hardwork in order to survive in this world.

    Praying For Money

    I think a Christian shouldn't pray directly for money. Rather, I think one should pray for wisdom and enlightenment to know and serve God better. By so doing, money will definitely follow. In asking for money, one should pray for others to get good money first before praying for your financial condition. However, this should be the last thing on your prayer order during each prayer. Remember, you also have to forgive others of their sins committed against you. This takes away any bitterness in your heart, which in effect prevents your blessings from reaching you. Again, personal needs like money should be the last thing on your prayer list during prayer. :D
