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.

    Am I the only one that condones abortion?

    I agree. I don't agree with late-term abortion, because at that point the baby is alive. Women SHOULD be able to do what they want with their bodies.

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

    Nope, the word "homosexual" is not really found in any of those verses. It was translated as such to compensate for things that people *think* the bible said. If Christianity, and Homosexuality are "completely incompatible" then, Christianity and Humanity are "completely incompatible" He came for the lame, and we are the lamest. Regardless of sexual orientation, he loves us still. I don't believe our rights should be infringed upon because of this, however, I do not see why one would not bake a wedding cake for a homosexual couple.
  5. God will accept those who accept Jesus into their heart, it is neither your place or mine to say who will make it into the kingdom of God. You know, the LGBT community SHOULD be pastors. You ever notice how God has chosen the most unrepentant, sinful, broken, "unqualified" people to be his Prophets? He doesn't judge by appearances. He doesn't judge by your actions. He judges by what is in the heart. If love is in someone's heart, and they want to have relations with someone of their own sex, then so be it. He never condemned it. All verses that supposedly condemn homosexuality in the New Testament have been debunked numerous times by various denominations, Theologians, and pastors alike. Even Pope Francis is less critical and more supportive of LGBT. On LGBT being Priests, Pastors, on the church staff:

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

    It will not hurt free speech or religious freedom. It hasn't in America because America isn't Canada. In the United States, we have a good balance between Liberal and Conservative, while Canada is extremely Liberal and far ahead of us in Liberal policies. Our current balance keeps our constitutional rights from being infringed upon. Therefore, regardless of who someone chooses to kiss, we should not neglect their marriage. But rather welcome them into the Church, so that they may find Jesus Christ.
  7. They should be accepted, yes. Should we go around waving a sign saying, "Hey! Gay people can be pastors now!". We are all created equal, God loves us all no matter what.

    I'm unsure. Was likely metaphorical.

    Does prison solve anything?

    We all make mistakes. There is punishment, then there is discipline. Punishment is simply, "You did this, now I'll do this back." Discipline is, "You did wrong, now I'm going to try and show you how to get back on track." Punishment is NOT what we need. Our tax dollars go to locking people up. We need discipline. But, there are certain cases (As with insane people, serial killers, rapists, ect...) where they should remain in prison for the rest of their lives. People who have robbed, or have done a smaller crime, should have jail time, just not for life. Maybe a few weeks, then they are watched closely, and given lots of counsel. Life counseling, ect... Because, it seems, that even after getting out of prison, nobody has learned their lesson (not always, but there are plenty of people who get out of jail, and then go do crime once again). It doesn't seem very effective. In my point of view, it is more of a, "We don't want to deal with you in the outside world, so, you'll be locked up." Just my two cents.

    End Time news.

    Climate Change is a real thing. That we know the specifics of. Same with the law, those are things we should be weary of. Jesus' return, is something nobody knows the day nor the hour. In the past 2000 years, there have been countless predictions of His return. They've all been false. What does that tell you? (Though, I am a preterist.) Just gusting on by, Gust

    No. Revelation was metaphorical. All prophecy was fulfilled by 70 AD. God bless. We need to stop sending people into fear with these false predictions of when He will return.

    If there are any "crimes." I'd rather have that corrupt old hag in office than Trump's radical policies and bigotry any day of the week.
