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 was shocked! The new? Apostasy, Blasphemy, Heresy. TRITHEISM! (Pagan) Promoted as the new Christianity.

:RpS_blink: Any Christian reading this take heed please. If you are ever considering joining a discussion community that promotes in its banner that it is a Christian place, before joining read their faith statement. It can save you a lot of trouble and let you scroll on to find an actual Christian site.

 

I'm searching on Yahoo for the terms, Christian discussion communities.

I get pages of references of course. On the first page there is a .Net site that I check out because it promotes itself as a Christian forum.

I browse the home board and there are huge numbers of forums to occupy one's down time when they're off work. Secular areas. Religious discussion areas. Community, non-debate, areas.

Looks cozy. I click the Forum tab. Then, Our Beliefs, link.

 

Hold it!

 

Tritheism!?

 

Really?

 

"We believe that there is only one God, who is eternal and immutable, and manifests Himself in three distinct Persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit."

 

Then I browse the discussion areas and find that there is one person who teaches constantly against the site rules and promotes legalism.Claiming someone can have the Holy Spirit stripped out of them, evicted, if they do one little thing that offends God.

 

Then there's another discussion wherein people are just finding out that the site is Tritheist and are taking issue. And they, as actual Christians are told that doing that is considered an attack on the site itself.

 

Be aware daughters and sons of the most high God there are false teachers in the world, money lovin people who call themselves preachers on our television programming schedules, and there are false forums installed on the Web intending to lure Christians in so as to infuse confusion in the saints, and lead the seekers straight to Hell.

 

LORD! What a shock. Tritheism! I haven't heard a Tritheist argument since I happened on a Satanic forum dedicated to the Egyptian god Set. :RpS_angry: This bunch are set on deceiving actual people of Christ!

 

Gpd be with any Christian there and may God lead all seekers away from that kind of false teaching. How dare they!

It's crazy how many false teachers and false teachings there are these days. I guess it should be expected though, as the Lord said.

Nothing new about tritheism. It has been out there forever.

It is something new to me when a site that says of itself it promotes Christ actually promotes this Tri- nonsense. :(

The devil and his agents, just as you said Origen, seeking to deceive. Even the elect. Just as scriptures warned. Thank God we have the forewarning of scripture if we didn't get forewarned by reading a Doctrinal Statement of such a site as that.

    • How Does Christianity Relate to Hinduism?

      by Ravi Zacharias   I often think back with nostalgia to growing up in India and the late-night conversations we would have about a Hindu play or some event that featured Hindu thought. Now, through the lens of Jesus Christ, I have learned to see how deep seated culture and religion can be and how only the power of the Holy Spirit can reveal the error of an ingrained way of thinking. Consequently, whenever we speak with someone from another faith, it is essential to remember that we must not attempt to tear down another's belief system but rather to reveal the hungers of the human heart and the unique way in which Christ addresses them.   For the Hindu, karma--the moral law of cause-and-effect--is a life-defining concept. Life carries its moral bills, and they are paid in the cyclical pattern of rebirth until all dues are paid in full. Hinduism here conveys an inherited sense of wrong, which is lived out in the next life, in vegetable, animal, or human form. This doctrine is nonnegotiable in Hindu philosophy. Repercussions of fatalism (that is, whatever happens will happen) and the indifference to the plight of others are inescapable but are dismissed by philosophical platitudes that do not weigh out the consequences of such reasoning. Thus it is key to bear in mind that although karma is seen as a way of paying back, this payback is never complete; hence life is lived out paying back a debt that one cannot know in total but that must be paid in total. That is why the cross of Christ is so definitive and so complete. It offers forgiveness without minimizing the debt. When we truly understand that forgiveness, we develop a loving heart or gratitude. There is a full restoration--in this life and for eternity.   The Christian should also understand the attraction of pantheism, the Hindu view of seeing the divine in everything. It superficially appears more compatible with scientific theorizing because it presents no definitive theory of origins. Life is cyclical, without a first cause. Pantheism also gives one a moral reasoning, through karmic fatalism, that one is trapped in the cycle until one escapes, without the need to invoke God. But in the final analysis, it is without answers when one needs to talk about the deepest struggles of the soul. Hindu scholars even admit this in their creation of a path of bhakti (love, devotion) to satisfy the inescapable human hunger for worship.   It is here that a keen understanding is needed. Krishna's coming to earth as an avatar--that is, one of the incarnations of the Hindu god Vishnu--in a way brings "God to man." But a huge chasm still remains. How does one bring man to God? For this, there is only one way-- the way of the cross. A profound and studied presentation of the cross, and what it means, is still the most distinctive aspect of the Christian faith. Even Gandhi said it was the most unexplainable thing to him and was unparalleled. For the Christian, the cross of Jesus Christ is the message "first to the Jew, and also to the Greek" (Rm2:9)--to the moralist and the pantheist, to the religious and the irreligious. We can communicate this message with a Hindu acquaintance or friend only through a loving relationship. The love of Christ, a patient listening and friendship, and the message of forgiveness provide the path to evangelism.
