Christforums

.... an orthodox (true and correct when contrasted with Liberal theology) Protestant forum whose members espouse the Apostolic doctrines in the Biblical theologies set forth by Augustine, Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin and John Knox etc. We do not "argue" with nor do we solicit the membership of people who espouse secular or cultic ideologies. We believe that our conversations are to be faith building and posts that advance heretical or apostate thinking will be immediately deleted and the poster permanently banned from the forum. This is a Christian Protestant community for people to explore the traditional theologies of Classical Protestantism.

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.

Here is a quote from the article:

 

Many Guatemalan Christians believe President Morales is an answer to their prayers.

The Guatemalan Church had been active throughout the election process, holding prayer meetings, prayer vigils, and fasting.

“God put His hand in Guatemala, it's a miracle what happened," prayer participant Marco Antonio Ruiz said. "We came together as Church and cried out with one voice. The effectual prayer of a righteous man availeth much. God heard the voice of all those who joined us in prayer."

American Christians should follow their example.

I hope this works out well for them, though just because someone claims the "christian" label, this does not mean what we may want it to mean:

On the campaign trail,
described himself in interviews as a “Christian Nationalist,” though he downplayed the associations that term has with Hitler’s Third Reich, and arguing that religion and patriotism are the only things that bind Guatemala’s geographically and ethnically diverse population.

Opponents pointed to that label along with the conservative former military commanders that fuel his political base. Those former soldiers participated on the government side of a brutal civil war that led to widespread human rights abuses, and mass killings that Morales has said cannot be considered genocide.

This does not bode well.

Mandate To Rule?

“With this vote you made me president,” Morales
on Sunday. “I have received a mandate, and the mandate of the people of Guatemala is to fight against the corruption that has consumed us.”

How strong is that mandate, and does it extend past political reform? Voter apathy was at a
on Sunday as nearly 50 percent of the electorate stayed home, likely due to a combination of
, dissatisfaction with the political process and a sense that Torres didn’t stand a chance.
