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 Antidote to Worry

    The only antidote for worrying is not to worry.How can you not worry when you are living with so many problems. Therefore, worry is a common phenomena. However, there is also a way out from this phenomena. You can try faith healing. If you leave everything in God's hands, you will not worry. If you get pain, you interpret this as god givem, if you receive pleasure, you interpret as god given, and everything will be fine.

    I tried this for a while.

    I have never written a poem, however, I like to read poetry and listen to poems. I studied art and literature in college, therefore, I take interest in poetry. When I was in college, we were required to not only interpret poems, but also write own poems. However, I always chose to interpret instead of writing. I found the poem very meaningful.

    Horror movies

    Do you like horror movies? Do you think the events depicted in the horror movies can actually happen in real life? I enjoy watching horror movies, however, I don't think the events depicted in the horror movies can actually occur. I think satan exits, however, most of the events shown in horror movies are hyperbolic.
  4. There are various faiths in the world. The root of Islam, Judaism and Christianity is more or less same. These faiths share similar concept on God and messenger of God. How does the Bible explain about other faith?

    Praying For Money

    Praying has different purposes: You pray to gain material benefits (money for instance). This is not wrong because it is acceptable to ask for good life against our devotion to God. You pray for spiritual benefits, for example you want God's favor in heaven. You also pray for the benefits of the world. This is the best purpose of praying.

    Who is the REAL God?

    If you follow a certain faith and doctrine, it is not difficult to define God, however, if you do not follow any faith,"who is the real god?" will become a difficult question. The word "God" has different meaning to different people. The Muslims God is different from Christian God, similarly Hindu's God is different from Buddhist God. The answer to "Who is the real God" depends on the person whom you ask this question.

    I believe it is not necessary to view every issues through the eyes of religion. Tattoo is just a body decoration. Nothing more than that. We cannot disregard any people just because of his/her tattoo. In many cultures tattoo is a taboo. The only reason that I can find for this view is tattoo was first used by tribal people and "civilized" people degraded those tribes.
  8. How do you define ethics and morality? Does ethics and morality differ from culture to culture, religion to religion? Or is it same every where? Can ethics and morality be taught or it comes from within?Is ethic and morality a religious issue?

    Your Favorite Quotes

    My favorite quote is from Hindu scriptures. It says: If the world wasn't beautiful, why would Gods come to live among us." I find this quote very inspiring. It emphasize on the enjoying the beauty of the world and celebrating life not matter how much you suffer.

    About Fasting

    I don't know about the religious views on fasting even though I know religious people fast. How fasting is connected with following or practicing religion? I fast, but my fasting is purely an activity that promotes good health and mental well being. When I fast, I drink a lot of water, which helps me to release toxins.Fasting also help me to put my weight right.

    Sex and the Single Person

    Most of the time sex is analyzed through moral and ethical perspective. Most of the world religions profess celibacy until you get married. However, the religion does not properly answer for the adult who is unmarried but want to have sex. Sex is as important as eating. If you do not have a good sex life, it is likely that you get corrupted. I believe it is ok to have sex with mutual agreement between the adults who are not blood related.

    Am I the only one that condones abortion?

    Stopping pregnancy is very simple. A condom, pills or implants can easily stop pregnancy. Why are they having unprotected sex and later kill the baby. A fetus even if it may be of 1 week is a human being, if you abort, you are actually killing people. If you do't want to get pregnant, why don't you practice safe sex. Except of rape case, or when there is a risk of life for the mother, abortion should never be performed.

    The Wrong Appeal of Modern Christianity

    Many people believe that faith in God and praying to the Lord will help them live a comfortable life. In my opinion, this is a wrong opinion. You want a job, go the the Church and offer prayings. What if you don't get this job. YOu will stop believing in God? Jim Morrison (the Doors) has said in one of his songs, "You cannot petition the lord with prayers."

    Death, and the life after (or promise thereof).

    We are faithful to the Lord does not mean we don't suffer from disease, separation from loved once or death of loved once. As a human beings we have to live a life that the Lord has destined for us. You you want the Lord to come to you and speak to you and your wife saying "My children do not get a divorce," or "I am taking your father and he will be safe with me." To think about such things is stupid. The Lord Jesus lived like a common man even though he was the son of God. We as a common people, should also live a common life where we feel pain and sadness.

    Buried or Cremated

    I have never ponder into this thought "what happens to my body after I die" There is a popular saying in our culture, "who cares when a sweeper becomes the king after I die," Does it matter what happens to your body? Do you ever think about the hair you cut and throw, nails you clip and discard? So why should you care about your body after you die. Cremation is a common death rites in our culture. When I dies iit does not matter to me whether I am cremated or buried.
