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.

I had a dream....

Recommended Posts

This isn’t meant to be a offensive question but here it is. I had a dream where someone was accusing me of being a Catholic. It's that simple, a woman I didn't know was talking with me about something I can't remember and what I do remember is that she kept telling me I was a Catholic in what I perceived to be an accusatory tone. Now I don't personally have any animosity towards Catholics but it makes me worry that either G*d is trying to tell me to examine my faith(which I do most of the time anyway), #2 it is just a silly random dream that means nothing or #3 it is a warning of some type. Acts 2:17 is an example of why I take things such as dreams seriously. I'm non-denominational but attend a church of Christ and with my view and the publicly accessible history of the Catholic church, along with the belief structure of that body, it is both offensive and worrying that I would have a dream like this. I've never had this dream, this is the first dream I have remembered after waking up in as long as I can remember so I'm kind of freaking out. Again, this is not meant to offend anyone, I didn't know where else to ask a question like this and I previously viewed similar questions to mine being asked on this site. Thank you for your time.

Reason #2 seems to be the most likely one for the dream. If you get the same message from some other source then you should consider the possibility that God is speaking to you through your dream.

      Dream interpretation

      My opinion is that as Christian's we should not dismiss trying to find meaning in the dreams that we have as some are from God.

      BUT also

      We should be very careful to use proper discernment in our interpretation when we do:

      • Is it biblically sound e.g. the dream may have felt good but was it sin - wrong interpretations may make your heart justify sin when you wake up.*
      • How did it feel? Most likely if it made you feel rough then the dream was of the enemy, a nightmare. Sometimes a warning from God too though.
      • Maybe it is just your brain processing the day if you dream about potatoes if you had a jacket potato for dinner lol.






      Christian dream interpretation? Are our dreams from God? this IMO is a good bible based website, and this is some useful advice from it:
      If it is, prayerfully consider what God would have you do in response to your dream (James 1:5).

      In Scripture, whenever anyone experienced a dream from God, God always made the meaning of the dream clear, whether directly to the person, through an angel, or through another messenger (Genesis 40:5–11; Daniel 2:45; 4:19). When God speaks to us, He makes sure His message is clearly understood.






      *I don't think I have been led into sin by a dream but I have been led astray by them before e.g. in a time when I was desperate for a breakthrough, the enemy gave a dream of doing a job that I was not ready for. I tried this job and found I had to leave as it was a massive stress. I have been led into big seasons of struggle and confusion as I had put my hope in a dream that was not of God.

      Sometimes we should do this:
       



      Hope I have not been too serious, watch out for Nephilim size potatoes running after you with a peeler.






      Shalom 🙂
