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.

    Baptism - necessary for salvation ?

    No. Not necessary but is to be expected of those who are saved.

    President Trump wall

    That's from the Bible, they wouldn't get the reference....

    Being born of water is being born.

    I wasn't really asking a question. It was sarcasm. What if the thief was not circumcised? He didn't offer sacrifices, etc. No baptism is not required for salvation. If someone gets saved on their deathbed and there is no time for baptism, guess what, they still are saved.

    Sick With The Flu

    Hey everyone, sorry I have been absent all week. I am sick with the flu. Today is the first day I have even felt well enough to come on and request prayer.
  9. I would say that is true for some, not all. I have personal friends in Congress.
  10. Congress used to be part-time as well if I am not mistaken. They only met when necessary. Isn't that right? Can someone check that?
  11. That shows more character than what the Democrats did with Obamacare. That is for sure.
  12. Never said that. I'm just saying it doesn't work the same way as it did in the OT. It's two totally different Covenants. If you were still alive at the time, you had to accept Christ. They still had to meet the requirements of the New Covenant.
  13. Again, this is a different covenant. We are no longer in the Old Covenant. We have entertained it, and find it to not be supported in Scripture.

    President Trump wall

    Yes, the wall is necessary. Yes, the government shutdown is harming people. Yes, the Democrats knew for A YEAR that this was going to happen. I guess they thought Trump was bluffing. But he said a long time ago he would not sign another CR without border wall funding. And what did Congress do in the meantime? Nothing. Nothing at all. All of the Democrats who have been in DC for a while have voted for wall funding before. All of them. Yet now, somehow, it is immoral. It is only because of their attitude towards Trump. They hate him. $5 billion dollars is pocket change in Washington so this isn't about the money like they try and claim.
  15. It is inconceivable how this could actually happen.
