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.

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.

Mortality is lost! ...programs on TV trying to say the young generation are now "no hold back" from promiscuity

Recommended Posts

Things are so ridiculous! I am so glad I did not have children! Not only do the young think they have only entitlement on their agendas, they can & do...

hold no restraint to urges... I hope God forgives me for becoming so cynical.... I really need to stop watching the morning talk shows... Don't watch the

daytime talk shows.... now have to cut off the morning ones as well! Is there scripture to help me handle this cynical thought?

I don't think you are cynical at all. You are just looking honestly at what is going on in the world.

News says 80% of teenagers have engaged in sex. I can remember when it was not even 20%.

Don't let the all the debuatchery in the world factor into your desisions. Consider homeschooling and teach your children that their bodies are to be respected and not to be used like a play thing like tv and music suggest. It's not a sin to think about the environment you'd be bringing children into, but you can trust in God and let Him lead your family.

Don't let the debauchery factor into what she does, but she should consider homeschooling ... because of the debauchery? This is allowing debauchery to factor into her decision.

I'm not impressed with the changes in schooling. It doesn't look like morals are even considered in MOST cases... Winken hit the nail on the head, these kids aren't being taught to just say no.

TV, music, hand held media have been allowed to teach these young minds the wrong things! Popular demand has taken over & deleting teachings of God. I think satan is really making

headway & laughing in our faces.... Lord help 'em, if they have a mind left to ALLOW Him to help! I could see the turn toward satan when they took "UNDER GOD" out of the pledge of allegiance!

or am I off base??? I still seek a scripture that helps me to fight this negativism, cuz' I really feel there is no future for this country, ( that was established with the permiss to live by God's word )

I'm referring to decisions regarding having children. Don't let the depravity of this world rob you from the blessing of having children.

We might have a better future if Christians brought more children into the world. Think what America would be like if there were no Christian residents left.

All countries will dissolve into nothing eventualy, the anti Christ will control them all. Think of yourself as a missionary and your country is The Kingdom of Heaven. Having children is like training new missionaries.

It is a shame what became of America, our men didn't fight and die in WW2 so Americans could murder their own children and treat human life like the nazis did. I'm almost ashamed to be an american. But it's not all that new, there is a divide between darkness and light, the contrast is just more visible in America today.
