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. Of course I do. I just don't use the word God as a filler for gaps in knowledge. I would much prefer to admit I don't know something rather than pretending that I do.

    Why There’s No Such Thing as an Atheist

    Finally. Something we can agree on 🙂

    Why There’s No Such Thing as an Atheist

    I don't believe angels have ever existed, so I wouldn't take that as evidence.

    Why There’s No Such Thing as an Atheist

    Sorry, I edited my post above. All those answers would be correct if you believed the gospels. How can you trust that as evidence? John 20:1, Matt28:1, Mark 16:1, Luke 24:10

    Why There’s No Such Thing as an Atheist

    Please explain these contradictions on a single event?....Matt 28:2, Mark 16:5, Luke 24:4, John 20:12 and was this witnessed by 1 woman, 2 women, 3 women, or an unknown number of women equalling at least 5?

    Why There’s No Such Thing as an Atheist

    The link above is not historical evidence, it's a Christian apologetic website that is trying to give more credibility to the bible. Without referencing the bible, how can you prove to me that Jesus actually rose from the dead? And furthermore why would you think that anything written by unknown authors thousands of years ago would convince me of anything? Do you take the whole of the bible literally? Or do you just take some of it literally?

    What powerful evidence? I would not reject anything that had powerful evidence as you put it. Show me the evidence without quoting the bible. The bible is not evidence for any supernatural occurrence.

    The apes

    You are kidding right? Have you read anything about evolutionary theory? I'm not going to go into detail here about why your post is so wrong, I'm just interested if you have actually studied evolution or you're parroting something that you have heard? If you have studied it, you must have misunderstood somewhere along the line. My advice to you would be to study the subject, try to understand it then make posts about it, otherwise you will make a fool of yourself posting ridiculous irrelevant questions.

    Ironic things

    Our local McDonalds is right next door to a shop that sells mobility scooters.. How ironic is that!

    Why There’s No Such Thing as an Atheist

    Atheism is purely a disbelief in a God or Gods. It's not a faith or a religion, it's just a position held by someone until sufficient evidence is provided to them to change their mind. In my experience, what theists view as sufficient evidence is never sufficient for me. This doesn't mean that I'm not open to the idea of a God, it just means that I personally am not convinced by anything I have read, seen or have been told.
  11. I was born an atheist. I was raised as a Christian, I read the bible, I believed the bible. I started reading other books and gained knowledge. I re-read the bible and became an atheist. I looked at different faiths not just Christianity and viewed them all as much of a muchness. I still continue to question everything and probably will until the day I die.

    How do you beat stress?

    Hi, I take long walks in the countryside to destress, just being out and about in the fresh air has a calming influence on me. Life can be overwhelming at times, I think it's important to clear your mind from time to time and take in the beauty of our earth.
