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. I would only be privileged to be banned because of what i represent.
  2. Yes id like to be blocked. This is not my fellowship. As i said i'm not needed.
  3. It does not make me a muslim to love them but it does not make you a christian not love a muslim your fellow man :d but what is common to the ignorant is not to want to know and not to want to have anything to do with what one don't want to understand.
  5. That is the meaning of christianity for me. The idea of Christianity. Other types of orientations do not make any impression to me. Sory. I do not want to debate to make myself look superior to others including other religions. Because i want to look less important so i can make them look more important. And that way God looks important. Where me and my knowledge is nothing there God is with me. And there my own value is in place and realistic. This is the point of Christianity for me and the only thing that attracts me in this religion. This is the reason for me why Christianity is the truth. Thank you i'm not here to debate. I do not want this kind of life and passtime. My church is in the streets. Not amongst christians they don't need me. I need to be needed. http://biblehub.com/matthew/25-36.htm
  6. I do not know. I have many muslim friends. God has created me to serve and give love unconditionally. This is my faith. http://biblehub.com/luke/18-13.htm
  7. The fact is that each one of us gets verses from the Bible that they favour. To me God is love and there is no dabate there i believe? Now how we each indevidual show love depends on our ablity to do so. There are people in this world who kill and say they did favour to God in doing so. We as humans are sad cases in many ways. We are quick to judge and slow to love. And it should be according to Bible the other way round. BUt then again one cannot be made to do something he is not capable of. I personally believe God will give me the strenght and He has aways given ...if i'm ready to love unconditionally. Again Jesus Christ died on the cross for you..what are you ready to do for Him? In spreading peace, understanding, love aren't they in your opinion the qualities we are to use to make others to see who is our God and what qualities He has ? Personally i avoid judgement if possible. I like to spread acceptance, love, understanding instead, it is far more beneficial for me and my life. Again Christ died for your sins.! He gave his life ! Did you deserve it? If Christ is your example then aren't you even to die for someone so that he can live?
  8. And when they confront you by saying the same about your religion what then? Automatically you close the door to understanding. If the religion what your neighbour practises is not the same as yours do you authorize yourself to tell him he is fooled by Satan? In history christian missionaries systematically ignored many areas where Islam was a religion that is why they never heard about your God. If you say to someone you are possessed with Satan how openly he is going to believe you about your truth?:D With love we can be wise too. Who was it that first loved you? Who has made you path FIRST before you was even born? Christ did and he died for your sins. What are you ready to sacrifice of your truth to someone who does not know? telling him he is fooled by SAtan? Were you not you fooled by Satan yourself too? before you found truth? And how did God approach to you ? with love or with judgement?
  9. That is not true. This is what the christian world says. At the same time the christian world uses The Bible litterally and interprets it how they see its best benefiting themselves. The religion has always been used to serve the purpose of the greedy and fanatics. No more done by Islam than christianity, (In fact more done in christianity),its just made to look as if this was the case. No more it is the fault of Islam that its the fault of christianity, its the fault of us. We as humans need to keep fair look at each one of us and see the truth. I have many friends in islam world and they seem to be to my surprise more free in many ways than we in a christian world yet we are fed the contrary. IN many ways they seem more responsable for ex.what comes to the poor amongst us and that comes from their religion, the instructions. At the same time we christian world Europe are making laws that would give us right to neglect the poor totally. In many ways, we as christians in this world do totally against what we believe in. Is it the fault of God? Is it the fault of Christianity? At the same time in christian world so much good happening in the name of the religion, so does in Islam world. When the war broke out in Iraq Syria took millions of refugees without questioning. (Syria not Islamic country but secularized) Now that we are to make our religion and its commands into practize whet is it that we doing? in the same situation?? You may give that a thaught today. My point : human action can be seen separate from their religion??! Or where do you read in Bible about not helping the poor and needy as christian? Still today in many parts of the world christians same way interpret the bible litterally (cults for ex.) The bad outcome is not reported as eagerly as when its happening in another religion ..don't you think? Well this is a little strange. Christianity is also used as bases in many very damaging religions as Scientology. Islam countries don't allow such, they consider that kind, good for you. The extreem right parties of the world right now are busy becoming "true christians" so not to not accept "false gods into their land" this also christian fanatism and misinterpretation of the christianity. Good day to you all
  10. [h=1]Matthew 7:3-5New International Version (NIV)[/h] 3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye?5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
  11. The world of Islam finds the same way a lot of reason to not accept our ways to practize our religion. Crusades and many more bad things done by the name of Christianity.
  12. Its indeed the command of God that you should obey if you are a christian.(willingly and feeling good in doing so) I cannot make you do so. If you feel you don't feel good in doing so that is another prob.
  13. When God commands us to love even our ennemies! ​​​​​​ “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that. And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full. But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. – Luke 6:32-36 (NIV)
  14. Christians are often fooled by thinking that God's command to love one another is only meaning another christian:D
  15. Love is the most difficult thing to to in this world. Man has never learnt to love although he knows to go to the moon. Its a gift from God and the ability comes from God.
