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.

    Is God male?

    That's a very nice explanation which somehow clarifies my concern. So, I got to the point of thinking that when a new person gets birth, that's God being portrayed on a new person that is probably going to be like God or probably will not, but that's God reborn in one of us, a new person that will be what God wanted the stained ones to be just before they spilled their bodies with sins and many other bad things. That was a good reading, by the way, thank you for sharing it.

    Is God male?

    I have always had that big concern regarding God's creation. If he created the male body as a reflection of himself, then who did he use to make the woman's body? Why are women beautiful and that sort of thing? I could think that God did not really mean that when saying the "reflection of myself" thing, or was he? Because I do not really understand the whole issue here. I personally think he meant to say it spiritually, but never physically, what do you think?
  3. Well, I personally think that you're somewhat right, but I do not really think that God does it when he's in the "mood" for it, I do not really know whether God has a mood or not, but it's hard to believe. However, I always keep in mind that everybody around me could be God in another person's skin, God is omnipresent, he's everywhere, he's everything, he's the whole universe if you want to see it that way, that's why we have faith in God, God is good. God bless.

    Alien Life

    Well, when it comes to proofs, we already know that science is not way too good at giving good and accurate proofs, but I've seen videos about UFOs and that sort of thing that look quite real, I do not really know how real those things are, but it's science and we somehow have to "believe" it even if we do not want to, it's always good to be up to date with the world and the universe information just to know what's going on all around ourselves. God bless.

    I am currently passing through that situation. My parents are cool with me, but the only thing is that we don't have the confidence for talking about personal stuff, I really would like to talk about absolutely anything that could be happening to me with my dad, but he doesn't help at all, whenever I tell him something that is going on in my life he just acts careless and I do not really like it, he's always like okay, he's so cold with us and that's a con, what do you recommend me?

    Does prison solve anything?

    You're somewhat right, I actually liked your opinion, but I personally think that prison does not solve the problem, not either the symptom. Once a man becomes a criminal there is no way back, that kind of people always find a way to stick to their illegal activities without caring about anybody else, but them. Prison only soils criminals from the society punishing them to treat with other people of his same kind just to keep him away from anything else, it does not actually solve anything at all, unless you're a person that really wants to change which I really doubt it may be a thing that a convict would think about once they are in prison, that's my opinion though.

    From the bottom of my hart, I really see your tattoo's story as something really special, I definitely would keep it for life if I were you. Losing your mother or any close person is really painful and you actually had the opportunity to share a mom-daughter moment with your mom, it's a beautifut thing if you keep that tattoo for life so you can remember your mom and all those moments you spent together, I really wish I had the confidence with my mom to do that sort of thing, believe me, your mom is a blessing. Taking it off your skin with lasser machines would not be a good dea, it's even worse than when you get the tattoo done on your skin, God would not like you to regret what you've done in the past. God bless.

    Buried or Cremated

    This is a good point I would've liked to point out when I commented. The fact of being buried allows you to somehow, religiously speaking, leave your body on the earth as your soul goes up to the sky, it's such a beautiful and interesting thing because I personally think of it as a chance to leave everything behind and start a new life along with God, unlike when you get cremated, your body goes away as the wind blows and you just disappear, at least that's how I see it, that's my point of view. By the way, thank you for your opinion, it's really good.

    How Many Times Do You Pray Per Day

    Well, by saying that I do not really mean that I will get any kind of special aura protection or anything like that, but it somehow goes beyond a protection, by praying before you go out is kind of a sign of confidence and faith in God because you know that God is always there with you and you just want to talk to him as you walk away so you're going to feel secure, that's all about it. Thank you too for pointing it out, hopefully you get my point :D God bless.
  10. Hmmm, it's quite weird. So basically based on your opinion and the scenario, then I could say that God is already here, so why would we be worried about when he is going to come? God could be the portrayal of a spirit inside your dad, of your mom, of the guy that you hate and whatnot. According to your opinion God could be out there dressing blue jeans and a t-shirt, then he already is around looking at you, probably outside your house or up on your roof, go take a look. God bless.

    Alien Life

    The scripture says that God only created Adan and Eva, he did not really say anything about Aliens or any other planet citizens, however, according to the science, they really exist. As we all may know, there are a thousand theories about Aliens and that sort of thing, but none of them has been confirmed. Probably the Area 51 manages all that sort of information, but it clearly is none of our business according to them. I do not really believe there are Aliens up the sky somewhere on a planet, but who knows if it's true. God bless.

    How Many Times Do You Pray Per Day

    It's such a good thing that you're somehow trying to get back to the path you used to be on. That's what many people in this world should do, for real. There are many people who do not really like investing five minutes of their time to have a word with God about anything they may want to talk to him about, it's a shame, but the point here is that you're not one of those people, you're doing the right thing and that's absolutely fine. It's really important to pray before going out of our homes, we never know what could happen to us outside. God bless.

    Why Isn't Christan Music Popular?

    Well, I will give my opinion talking as a young boy. I personally think that Christian music has not become any popular because several reasons that you may think these do not make any sense, but that is just my opinion, first off, music is ruled by young people nowadays, yes, if you analyze it and look a little bit closer, the majority of the young people (from 7 to 25 y/o, teenagers - young adults) support every single genre, but Christian music, why? Because most of them are Catholic, atheists or they simply don't believe in anything, that's why that genre is not so popular, now see it from this perspective; what if the majority of the humanity was Christian? Yes, that's the answer, the majority of them would listen to Christian music, but as they're not, they just don't, that's the simple equation. God bless.

    Buried or Cremated

    I've never thought about that, I somehow feel like you're making me predict my death. However, I can tell that I would consider the idea of getting buried, just as usual, I do not really find being cremated as something that God would like, by the way, I do not really know if God agrees with this anywhere in the scripture, but that's just what I think. Everybody has right to choose how they want their last days to be set up and well, this is kind of a sad thing to think about, but we're going to think about it someday.

    Modern Christian Music

    Well, I have never been such a big fan of Christian music at all, I do not really know why, but I somehow feel like it's kind of a joke, I also find it disrespectful. I know you may think I am crazy or something like that, but my parents never made me get used to listening to that music genre even when we're religious people. I do not really have anything against that genre, but I personally do not like it, it's not the music I would listen to like I normally listen to other genres, that's my opinion though.
