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.

    The wall

    You're an unrighteous and a false man.

    The wall

    Frankly I find this a bit sacrilegious.

    The wall

    Illegal immigration is at the lowest rate it's been in 40 years, despite Trump's fear mongering, largely because Mexico's economy is doing well. Not exactly the best time to damage their economy by forcing them to foot the bill for a $15 billion wall, which will in turn increase the illegal immigration the wall is a symbolic defense against. Symbolic because there are large swaths of territory where building a wall will be virtually physically impossible. "The Wall" is like an idea a not particularly precocious eight-year-old might come up with.
  4. Whoever the current President is, at any given point in time, someone somewhere is convinced they're the anti-Christ.
  5. Or maybe "deal with" them the same as you deal with anyone else you interact with over the course of your day.
  6. Or maybe they're protesting a President who boasted about sexually assaulting women. It's not that head-scratching or difficult to understand.

    Backsliding. Can a Christian backslide?

    Of course a person can decide to no longer be a Christian, just as a person can choose to become a Christian.

    Help, please.

    Put simply, a Christian is someone who professes their faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Being a Christian doesn't make you "better" than "a nice, non-religious person", but it means you accept that Christ is The Way and profess him in your heart as your Savior.. As for whether it's a "must" to attend church, Christ himself said that wherever people gather in His name, He is there, which doesn't necessarily denote a church. If you do wish to attend, is it possible to find anyone who could give you a ride or even walk with you?

    Backsliding. Can a Christian backslide?

    Absolutely a Christian can backslide. None of us are perfect or without sin, and we all struggle with matters of faith. One can lose one's faith, but God holds the door open for us and forgives us if we come to him.

    Star Wars

    I think Star Wars fans will find more to appreciate than casual moviegoers. I won't spoil them, but lots of Easter Eggs, nods, callbacks, cameos, etc. Old locations from A New Hope meticulously recreated that look exactly the same forty years ago. I definitely had my share of geek out moments.

    Why the Left is Wrong on Every Issue

    Is there a daily quota of "Democrats are evil" threads to be met here? Because it seems so.

    Star Wars

    I enjoyed Rogue One but I think I enjoyed The Force Awakens more. TFA has more memorable characters and propels the "main" storyline forward, while Rogue One is kind of a footnote to A New Hope.

    Modern ways to attend services?

    I know some people who are too physically unwell to attend services use Skype and conference calls and such, similar to how students watch lectures while taking their classes online.
  14. What does that have to do with the GOP attacking healthcare coverage?
  15. The GOP worships corporations as their gods and attack poor people at every turn. Being against abortion and same-sex marriage are not the only prerequisites for being "Christian". Just the other night they took the first steps toward dismantling health coverage for millions of Americans, including children, people with preexisting conditions, and veterans. They bear far more resemblance to the Pharisees than they do to Christ.
