    Hi Parousia, WELCOME TO CF :)

    As for finding other believers to talk to about the Lord, I'd say you've defnintely come to the right place. I'm glad you found us :)

    God bless you! (Numbers 6:24-26)

            Parousia,

            From some of your other posts I see that you're Calvinist? Are you also Reformed? Just curious.

            God bless,
            William

                Yes, although I would cringe at stretching that label past the bible's emphasis on God's sovereignty, to the exclusion of man's free will.
                Not sure how to answer the second question. From the limited amount I've been exposed to the "Reformed" persuasion, I agree wholeheartedly, but I grew up in an Independent Fundamental Church and then have gone to churches of varying denominations. I am interested in knowing more about the history of the Reformed "camp". :) Not sure if that makes sense? lol

                  G'day Parousia,

                  It does make sense and it is praiseworthy that you understand that there is a distinction. Calvinism is a branch of Soteriology, and Reformed is an umbrella term that covers not only Soteriology, but also Covenant Theology, Cessationism, and Amillennialism. Further note, Protestant means more than to just "protest" but actually conveys a Systematic, Evangelical, Catholic (Universal), and Reformed approach to Scripture.

                  I'm sure you have already noted our Reformed Category. It has lots of great data on the subject matter: What is Reformed Christian Theology? -Christforums

                  And I note your cringing and reluctance here Sister, Calvinist are generally frowned upon in today's Christiandom. For FYI, I am a Calvinist, and I am very happy that you have decided to join us.

                  May your time and efforts here be fruitful, God bless,
                  William

                    I'll check out the Reformed Category, thank you. I don't think, at least I hope, my cringing is not at what society thinks, rather at my own temptation to disregard God's commandment to declare the gospel to the lost. I definitely see a larger thrust and appreciation for God's sovereignty in the Bible, in regard to the work of salvation, and therefore would be considered "calvinistic". :)

                      Coming to this forum is a dream cone true. I'm a Christian since 1984 when I undergo baptism. I attend Apostolic Church. I am one of those who are in haste for rapture.
