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.

    Lord, we pray for this lovely seeking couple to be given direction in the Holy Name of JESUS! I pray your marriage will be blessed with your open hearts. In your search, get a decent study Bible, and start in the book of James. It is short. Then move to John and get deep. Read your Psalms if you are hurting. Geez, i should take my own advice. Ya see Voltape, you already helped someone here!

    Returning Protestant

    Hey Sara, either way you are loved here. Have you posted or can talk about why you left?
  3. Rudolph was bullied too 🙄. And this verse will come under fire (npi) from "Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas" A pair of hop-a-long boots and a pistol that shoots Is the wish of Barney and Ben... Fortunately they can't find toy pistols anymore. Hopefully they are NRA members. 🙂
  4. Man, i struggle with this one. I believe you can't keep doing the same thing knowing full well it is wrong, and yet i was doing it (sex). Duh, stupid me! I believe i was in danger of missing the calling up and started reasoning why i could miss it and how i could help the girl i was involved with for an excuse. Eventually tho, conscience got me and i got out of it. Thank God!

    Is it possible to baptize myself in water.

    Now you have someone who will help you find one. It is smart of you to avoid that church and healthy to want to be baptized, but i doubt you will penalized for wanting it and not being able to do it. Pray about it. Shiny side up, driver.
  6. I would spin this and ask if the PRK has the right to ambush it's own citizens. The UN is a joke. We are gonna miss Nikki Haley.
  7. If these are fables as some would say, then why even be a Christian? To try and cover all the bases? If you can fully explain the Lord, i would say feel free to add but that is expressly forbidden so no one can. I hope you can accept this verse, cuz we ain't seen nuttin' yet! Not trying to be snotty to you if it comes across that way. 1 Corinthians 2:9 International Standard Version (ISV) 9 But as it is written, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined the things that God has prepared for those who love him.”
  8. I would like to know when evolution stopped being a theory. If true, it would be hard to be a "good" Christian IMO. John 1:3, NIV: "Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made." John 1:3, ESV: "All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made." John 1:3, KJV: "All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." If John lied then i follow a lie, and i have no hope.
  9. I had no idea where put this. When i searched "prophecy", guess how many results came up? 666 references! Is wicked cool an oxymoron? Now it's 667. China has a social control system in place. A peek into the future world. China's Chilling 'Social Credit System' Is Straight Out of Dystopian Sci-Fi, And It's Already Switched On WWW.SCIENCEALERT.COM <p>Like Black Mirror. Totally like Black Mirror.</p>

    If Joel Osteen was your pharmacist

    Murdock is a classic. I would ask if Joel has stock in said meds. Then avoid them.

    Daniel 9:24

    I was talking to a Rabbi and he asked where i got my Spiritual fill. When i replied, "Yeshua", he said, something like, oh, well thank you for not pushing it. Now i have heard we are doing a great disservice to the Jew if we do not proclaim Jesus to them, but if they have been blinded and hardened, does anyone think they will be judged under the Law? If they don't want the Gospel, God already said they were gonna reject it so i let it go. I find predestination a semi interesting subject to listen to, but like eternity that i cannot comprehend, why God would predestine a very small part and leave the rest to die. Why bother with anything then? This must be a thread somewhere...

    Paul was a false Apostle!

    I would think the original poster was Jewish. Surprised he didn't refer to The New Testimony as Paulism
  14. Even So

    Was Jesus really a pacifist?

    So should Christians have done the Lord's will with all the killing in many stories instead of using evil unbelieving governments to carry out His judgement? I also am quite sure the apostles did not die prematurely as stated above somewhere. Maybe Christ died prematurely too then. Of course, if He did, a lot of prophecy was fulfilled for nothing. Also, Jesus showed incredible restraint when He was ticked off and flipped the tables in the temple. I think God is gonna flip the world next time.
