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.

Hi. I just joined. I never know what to say in these introductions, but I look forward to exploring the community. I've only read a few things so far, but this seems like a good group!

 

Oh, and I'm a very recent re-convert. I'm trying to come into the light out of the darkness...but of course it's hard to tell sometimes where one begins and the other ends, so I thought it might be a good idea to seek a community of Christians. I don't go to church now, and I'm moving soon, so I hope to find a good one soon when I get where I'm going.

 

God bless.

Welcome! I read in your profile that you like to read that's so good.May I share a great way to help your faith in Jesus Christ grow? Start reading your Bible DAILY. I suggest starting with Matthew and read fifteen minuets, ten pray for another 15 minuets. Sounds like a lot of time? It really is not. I start each day this way and fifteen minuets gets so interestiog I often read more. Talking withe the Father is the very same way, after praying for all of our four adult children and their husbands and wives, 11 grand children and 1 great grandchild, then my pastor and the church family, our country and leaders, before you know it its been 45 minuets. GOD is so good! In my 72 years he has never let me down, even after the many times I have failed Him.

 

Please take serious how important daily praying and Bible reading is. Without this you will be a weak Christian. I really feel with your love for reading you will really grow in Jesus Christ.

 

May I suggest you get a really good study The Life Application in the New American Standard Bible would be a good choice to check out its very accurate and has a fantastic concordance, and super notes. I hope this helps. Blessings.
