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.

In a discussion about Perseverance of the Saints someone dropped a bomb of a quote. Made me think in that moment the difference between "Perseverance of the Saints" and "Once Saved Always Saved":

 

“No man living is perfectly assured of God’s love, or is so certain, that he cannot be made more certain.” –Daniel Burgess (1645–1713) The Marks of a Godly Man

 

God bless,

William

This is a good one from Martin Luther..

I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God's hands, that I still possess.

From C.S. Lewis' book the problem of pain, Speaking of Jesus "only two of this man are possible. Either he was a raving lunatic of an unusually abominable type or else, he was and is precisely what he said. There is no middle way."

Some wars are fought on different fronts. Not all doors are physical but some of them are ideological and spiritual... disarm a soldier and they'll remain the course while steadfast in battle... . any Chaplains, Apologists, and Missionaries here?

You are already of consequence in the world if you are known as a man or woman of strict integrity.

“Yesterday is history,

tomorrow is a mystery,

and today is a gift...

that's why they call it present
