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.

London Terror Attack Kills 7, Leaves Nearly 50 Injured

Recommended Posts

Not even two weeks after the deadly terror attack at the Manchester Arena which killed 22 people, the UK has been the target of yet another attack.

 

Masked men drove a vehicle into pedestrians on London Bridge before exiting the vehicle and going on a stabbing spree, according to CNN.com. Seven people died in the attack and 48 others were injured.

 

After the suspects exited the van they had driven into the crowd, they reportedly made their way toward the popular nightlife district of Borough Market. The attackers were also wearing fake suicide belts, causing widespread panic among victims.

 

The attack occurred around 10 p.m. local time and London police were able to shoot and kill the three assailants before they could take more lives.

 

This is London’s third terror attack this year, following the Westminster Bridge and Manchester attacks. Terror attacks have been becoming increasingly frequent in Europe, and attacks carried out with vehicles as a weapon have authorities particularly concerned.

 

In the wake of the London Bridge attack, UK Prime Minister Theresa May had some strong words:

 

"We cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are," she said. "Enough is enough."

 

May also condemned the radical ideology of the terrorists: "It is an ideology that claims our Western values of freedom, democracy and human rights are incompatible with the religion of Islam.”

Just last year, a documentary aired on the BBC called “The Jihadist Next Door,” which followed around a number of Muslim extremists in the UK who wanted to implement Sharia Law there, and had sympathies towards ISIS.

 

By the time the documentary aired, one of the jihadists followed (named Abu Rumaysah) had already left for Syria and appeared on ISIS propaganda as an executioner. Here’s a picture of Rumaysah in the documentary – and in ISIS propaganda not long-after.

It’s a shame the documentary didn’t inspire any vigilante justice – because it would’ve prevented one of Saturday’s terror attacks in London.

 

According to the Evening Standard, MI5 and police faced growing pressure today over whether the London Bridge murders could have been prevented after it emerged that at least one of the attackers was a known extremist who had been reported to the authorities.

 

Neighbours in the block of flats in Barking where “Abs” — one of the three alleged terrorists — lived said that he had been thrown out of his local mosque because of his views and had a reputation for aggressive behaviour.

 

There were further claims that he had twice been reported to police over fears about his extremism and that police had last month secretly recorded Islamic State-inspired plotters in Barking talking about mounting a van and knife attack.

Footage of the killer, who is understood to be aged 27 and of Pakistani heritage, has also emerged from a Channel 4 documentary last year in which he is seen among a group of radicals unveiling an Islamic State flag in a London park.

 

Other film of him berating police outside a mosque has also been published.

 

Well – congratulations to the BBC and the UK authorities for following around ticking time bombs and doing nothing about it

 

There are over 23,000 suspected jihadists being actively monitored by British intelligence- and by the looks of things, it appears that the punishments for public displays of “Islamophobia” carry a punishment more harsh than actually calling for Jihad.

The same things have come out about the Manchester attackers. They are being reported, but the perception is that authorities aren't doing anything to handle it. Five other terrorist attackers were stopped between the Westminster and the London Bridge ones, so the services are doing something right, but the security services need to do more of it and probably need more resources.

Unfortunately, no matter how strongly you suspect somebody of ill intent, you can't jail somebody for a crime you think they might commit in the future. Not in a democracy anyway.

I agree with you on this and i believe that this method will just escalate the situation even more but i feel that there have been way too many attacks in Europe lately that it has become concerning.
