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. God want us to listen to Him and He knows that we want his presence even if we are sinners. He created us in His own likeness that is why He can't leave us alone. I don't think that He expects much from us apart from obeying Him and do as per His word.

    I love Jesus!

    Welcome and thanks for sharing with us. We all go through challenges and we need to pray for ourselves and our friends so that God can help us. By sharing about our past, we strengthen our faith as God sees us through the challenges.

    Why was Satan allowed to approach God?

    I think that God gave Satan a chance to approach Him because He knew that even so, He remained to be God. We could have not known how great God was if we doubted whether He had the powers to save us from temptations. God is giving Satan an option to change his behavior which we don't know where he got from. It is like God is giving us a chance to approach him even if we are sinners.

    Buried or Cremated

    If we are Christians and follow what Christ did then we should consider burying the dead. Remember that Jesus was buried and he never opposed it. I think that by burying the dead it talks more about our generation to future generations. Cremation also be another choice of burying the dead. We should also remember that the dead has nothing to do with the living and they can't affect them in any way.
  5. Nobody wants to live in a country led by gays or lesbians. Unfortunately this story is coming out during elections and not many people may have known or will know about it and it's authenticity remains unclear. You should also know that everybody is a sinner. We have presidents who are liars, thieves, murderous, gays, lesbians.... but we are the ones who usually vote them into the positions. This might also be seen as propaganda by the opposition to tarnish Hillary Clinton's name. The story might be true, but what if she stopped her practices long time ago or sometimes back?

    Why Isn't Christan Music Popular?

    Most people don't like listening to gospel music because of influence from friends or people near them. We usually listen to secular music because we can hear it play whenever we travel or eat at restaurants. Others prefer having only secular songs in their mobile devices and other storage devices. This makes it easy to share with friends and family members. Unless we commit ourselves to listening to gospel music then we may not have the time to.

    Hey ChristianForums!

    You should always be prayerful. Remember to thank God for keeping you alive till now. We all go through challenges and we need to face them courageously. Through prayers we come to get that we can live positively no matter the situation. I pray that God hears your prayers.

    Shoot To Win

    Lately most people like playing games which need players to shoot opponents for them to win. Do those games affect our Christian lives? Are Christians supposed to avoid such games? I do see my neighbour's children running after each other trying to ''shoot" to win. How do those games affect one's mind?

    Who here enjoys DIY Projects?

    I do enjoy doing most projects by myself. The Instructables site has really helped me perform different projects easily. This helps me avoid buying expensive products that I can make by myself. I recommend that everyone should try DIY projects.

    Secular Music

    Apart from gospel music, how often should we be listening to secular music? I know that there are songs which are not gospel songs but they can teach people on how to live in our societies. Other songs talk about different values or advise on how to live peacefully with other people.
  11. My condolences go to those who lost their loved ones in Italy after an earthquake. Is there a way that we can avoid such catastrophes and save lives? I think that scientists should look for a way of knowing what's happening before earthquakes strike. We should also be advised about possible regions which are prone to earthquakes.

    Seeking For Advice

    When you are not in good terms with your spouse, whom do you usually recommend to advice you? Some people suggest seeking advice from their parents, others from local church pastors and others prefer taking their issues to court.

    How To Forgive

    You cannot forgive unless you forget. Sometimes you find it difficult to forget about the past because you never talked about what affected you so that you could have been given some advice. You can also talk to your father and mother about your past and if they can ask for forgiveness then I know you can easily forget about the past after forgiving them.

    Marriage is losing its grip on modern society

    Many youths are into drugs and they usually don't think about marriage. They have been attracted to prostitution to satisfy their daily desires. This has resulted since parents have no control on what their children do. Many young people copy what others do through online videos and chats hence bombarding themselves with negative minds.

    Alien Life

    If God is not limited to creating then we must be having aliens living. I don't think that there is anyone who knows everything about God's creation. There is still more that we may or may never know or see. We see because of light and the fact that we have got eyes. A large part of our universe lack light and we don't know what's happening there. To say that there is nothing happening then we are suggesting that God is unable of supporting any activity there. I do believe that there is alien life in the universe because God is able to support that.
