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.

Christianity will never die out completely. Even in past times of persecution -- there's always been a remnant to continue spreading the Gospel of salvation. We All need to take a positive stand for God / His Word.

I would say this is quite obvious to me from what I see here in the UK.. So I believe his claim,

 

Muslim's have a higher child rate about 4 fold more than the white majority, Muslim's tend to be very conservative handing down their religion to their children & if they don't follow there is serious consequences.. Atheism is on the rise within the white working class, and is something most people see as 'cool' with it's pro science stance... We can blame liberalism again for this.

Have I just woken from a 40-year slumber? (in other words, this is very old "news")

And always will be, by God's hand; however, the percentage of evangelical Christians in Europe is extremely small in contrast with its recent past.

Yeah, that's too bad it is shrinking like that. Not good.

Doesn't Scripture say that That is what's going to be happening in the end times -- that there will be a falling away from God's Word. We're seeing it happening. Then again -- we went through the Depression years -- well -- that was a couple of generations back. But there have been very bleak times in past history. It's been stated that the end times will be like a woman going through labor pains -- they get stronger and more frequent as time passes until Finally the baby emerges. Just as the body feels like it's going to explode.

The Scriptures do sound like there will be a falling away during the end times and there will always be a remnant remaining.

I think of Europe being primarily Catholic. Lemme get this straight, Catholicism ushers in secular ideology and other religions and then worries about its own destruction?

 

God bless,

That could almost apply to the U.S.A. -- we want to be able to what we want to do with whomever we want to do it with but with no negative side affects -- -maybe the continual wild fires and the hurricane season being so severe this year -- God is displaying His wrath upon us. People Are showing that they can be there for each other, People have come to Christ as a result of some of the volunteers sharing Christ with them.

 

My brother has lived in his little piece of Paradise on P.R. beaches in San Juan. We just heard from him yesterday via Face Book. His little piece of Paradise has been destroyed and he's in a shelter with Lots of other people -- every one is suffering. It has devolved from Paradise to h........those were his thoughts.

Sorry to here about your brother's place. I agree, the US is also having many problems right now. I think these storms could be a judgment as well.

On the news today -- they were showing all the supplies sitting waiting to be used. It was complicated getting the supplies to the people. The infra-structure of the island is all but destroyed. One of the guys being interviewed was almost in tears -- because of the conditions of the roads, etc. he wished he could deliver the goods himself. It was just so slow -- but it was getting to those in need -- and the need is dire.

Well, Eastern-Orthodoxy seems to be dying out a little in Eastern-Europe, and is being replaced with Evangelical sub-denominations.

In Finland, the small but strong (having an official status along with the Lutheran Church) Eastern-Orthodox Church has been increasing in number lately. I don't know if there has been any researches why this has happened, but I think some lutherans have converted to the Orthodox Church because it is more conservative. If I remember correctly, this phenomenon started about the same time when women priesthood was accepted in the Lutheran church.

People are running to and fro and knowledge is increasing. So is disillusionment. I think it started in the 30s during the depression. My grandmother and mother were fully Christian but they never went to church. I think they felt the churches suffered from churchianity. They both displayed Christian verses on their walls, but I can't remember them ever reading the Bible. Looking back, I think they were just confused on what Christ expected of them. They sure let down on not encouraging their children to go to church. I think the older established institutions are being called out for their errors.
