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.

    All 613 Laws of the Old Testament

    Do we have to follow Old Testament laws as Christians ?
  6. The Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6:9–13) “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.” Jonah’s Prayer for Salvation (Jonah 2:2–9) “In my distress I called to the Lord, and he answered me. From deep in the realm of the dead I called for help, and you listened to my cry. You hurled me into the depths, into the very heart of the seas, and the currents swirled about me; all your waves and breakers swept over me. I said, ‘I have been banished from your sight; yet I will look again toward your holy temple.’ The engulfing waters threatened me, the deep surrounded me; seaweed was wrapped around my head. To the roots of the mountains I sank down; the earth beneath barred me in forever. But you, Lord my God, brought my life up from the pit. “When my life was ebbing away, I remembered you, Lord, and my prayer rose to you, to your holy temple. “Those who cling to worthless idols turn away from God’s love for them. But I, with shouts of grateful praise, will sacrifice to you. What I have vowed I will make good. I will say, ‘Salvation comes from the Lord.’”
  7. Very well said. you are right William
  8. Capitalism is not against Christianity. infact christianity has played a big role in invention of capitalism. capitalism is most effective system. And is eliminating poverty as well.
  9. Iran is the only theocratic state in world. and you can see how it functions. it is a hell on earth. christianity brought individualism and freedom. espically Protestant christianity values.
  10. First I will say, socialism never works. and capitalism is working fine, and eliminating poverty as well in world. so I was thinking if Jesus was socialist or capitalist ? Or mix. because Jesus did healed people without and compensation, which is socialism and then Jesus at one point said, obey your master, which means to keep the order and in bigger picture, capitalism. so any thoughts ?
  11. Jesus was God in flesh. all 3 persons, Holy Spirit, son, father are equal. you can pray to Jesus as well.

    Who is the REAL God?

    Yes I know. some people have given arguments, that those strict laws in Old Testament were for only those times for Israelites. but as the New Testament has came, Christians don’t follow those laws. But that’s why I was avoiding theology. lets take this way, christianity and Christians are least violent group of people, who have most sensible laws.
  13. Narrated Anas bin Malik: A group of eight men from the tribe of 'Ukil came to the Prophet and then they found the climate of Medina unsuitable for them. So, they said, "O Allah's Apostle! Provide us with some milk." Allah's Apostle said, "I recommend that you should join the herd of camels." So they went and drank the urine and the milk of the camels (as a medicine) till they became healthy and fat. Then they killed the shepherd and drove away the camels, and they became unbelievers after they were Muslims. When the Prophet was informed by a shouter for help, he sent some men in their pursuit, and before the sun rose high, they were brought, and he had their hands and feet cut off. Then he ordered for nails which were heated and passed over their eyes, and they were left in the Harra (i.e. rocky land in Medina). They asked for water, and nobody provided them with water till they died (Abu Qilaba, a sub-narrator said, "They committed murder and theft and fought against Allah and His Apostle, and spread evil in the land.") (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 261)
