Christforums

.... an orthodox 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 community for people to explore the traditional theologies of Classical Protestantism. Those who would challenge the peace and harmony that we enjoy here as fellow believers are directed to another forum.

Enjoy your fellowship

In order to understand the importance of Christian fellowship, we must first understand what Christian fellowship is and what it isn’t. The Greek words translated “fellowship” in the New Testament mean essentially a partnership to the mutual benefit of those involved. Christian fellowship, then, is the mutually beneficial relationship between Christians, who can’t have the identical relationship with those outside the faith. Those who believe the gospel are united in the Spirit through Christ to the Father, and that unity is the basis of fellowship. This relationship is described by Jesus in His high-priestly prayer for His followers in John 17:23. The importance of true Christian fellowship is that it reinforces Christ centeredness in our mind and helps us to focus on Christ and His desires and goals for us. As iron sharpens iron, in true Christian fellowship Christians sharpen one another's faith and stir one another to exercise that faith in love and good works, all to God’s glory.

Bitter much!

 

Boo, Hoo, Hoo...I am a liberal and when things don't go my way I throw a temper tantrum.

I think that everyone who was masking their face (in that mob) should have been charged.

So much for all that love, peace, and acceptance they are always talking about, huh? They seem to be the most intolerant ones of all.

 

Why does anybody think that behaving that way will make positive progress? I really don't understand it. Throwing a fit isn't the answer.

 

I love the sign about hate being carried by the hater. How ironic.

I am a supporter of women's rights, So I am offended with the way Afghanistan and Pakistan treats girls and women. Radical feminist though are as worst as the male chauvinist pigs. They wanted a world where men don't have rights. They also don't have any care about human life because of their endorsement of Pro-choice. If they really want to empower women and girls, Why don't they just help girls who needs education get education instead of whining about it.

 

The liberals, kept on accusing conservatives as bigots but aren't they discriminatory too?

I agree, @Sparky. Demanding special treatment is not in any way the same as fighting for equality. I've said the same thing about groups like BLM. If they really want to help, why aren't they protesting in neighborhoods where the people are killing each other in record numbers? Why aren't they trying to fight against senseless murders occurring on a regular basis? Chicago would be a good start. The gun violence (despite strict gun laws) is out of hand. People kill each other daily, far more often than police kill them.

I think we all need to figure out a way to sit at the table together without getting offended with every little thing that the next person says. We're never going to be able to truly come together as a country until you can hear my point of view and I can hear yours. We can't hear if we aren't listening and trying to understand what the next person is actually trying to say. We need to learn to agree to disagree on some issues and move on. I have plenty of friends and family that don't agree with every thing that I stand for, but we are able to hear each other out and go on about our business. There's too much hate here right now, and with all the hate, it is clouding anything positive that could possibly happen. Christ preached love and I think more of us need to learn how to love thy neighbor.

I'm all for listening to someone who is willing to engage in reasoned debate. I'm interested in learning why people think the way they do, even if I disagree. So, yes, I agree with the premise of what you're saying.

 

On the other hand, it's hard to listen to people who are shouting in protest, shouting down anyone who dares to have a different opinion. When the first line of defense for some is to call people names (like bigot) or try to shame them into conforming, they aren't going to win hearts and minds.

 

We should love our neighbor. You don't have to agree with someone to care about them. Disagreement isn't the same thing as hate, despite what some would have us believe..

That is absolutely what I mean though. We should be able to all have our opinions. I think that some of us need to examine whether or not our opinions comes from a place of love or a place of hate and then decide whether or not to discuss them, but for the most part if we listen, we might find that we agree more than we disagree. It might make us better people in the end. One of the best quotes I know is that God gave us 2 ears and 1 mouth, so that we can listen twice as much as we speak. Now as far as protest goes, I must say that protesting is one of our many rights as American citizens, and we may not agree with what they are saying, but they have every right to say it. Some of them just need to remember that you catch more bees with honey, so a peaceful protest is the way to go.

Many people would like the BLM movement to be a carbon copy of the Martin Luther King movement. The Martin Luther King movement chose purely peaceful involvement and this was maintained at a cost. Those people would march on throughout the beatings, the illegal incarcerations, and abuses. I am not saying that the BLM should go out and destroy the city but I can't understand why some people believe that they should be like the predecessors from the Martin Luther King Civil Rights Movement. Some are quick to point out that they direct aggression to the police but when you have a police force that is killing Black men without probable cause and then the law mostly set these officers free then one day somone will stand up and say no more!

That may actually be part of the problem though, @nailah783. Some people think that if they don't change your mind, you weren't listening. Frankly, there are few serious issues on which I'm going to change my mind at this point. I know what I believe. I know some of these topics backwards and forwards, and I've heard the arguments. That doesn't mean that I can't still understand why someone else feels the way they do about a certain subject. It doesn't mean I "hate" them. We don't all have to agree on everything in order to treat each other with decency.

Radicalism is present every where. Hardliners are all around. We should not judge any ism just because some radicalist and hardliners are there. There are some Christians who are so bad with other people, should we condem Christanity because of them. No, it does not work this way. Some feminist are hardliners, they don't want equality, what they are seeking is taking charge of everything and supressing men. Their motto is "we are being supressed since ages and now men have to pay this." This is bad, this is not feminism. Feminism is all about asking for equality.
