Christforums is:

.... 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.

Prayer request for fallen brother, Jonathan

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! Please pray for Jonathan. He was once an on fire believer and it appears that he has fallen away from the Lord... actually may be a professing atheist? Not sure on his exact status, but if you would please put him on your prayer lists it'd be greatly appreciated!

Jesus will find this lost sheep, no matter where he runs he will not have peace, until he is found.

Hi rachel,

 

I will also pray for him. Sometimes a former believer will call themselves an atheist as a way to lash out at their former faith. When I gave up on finding Jesus as a teenager, I viewed myself as an unbeliever. A little later, I softened from that stance. When God was ready, He called me back.

 

Yours,

 

Deade

I will pray for him, but it would be best to understand just what happened to cause this immense gulf between Christianity and him. People don't just turn from a belief system to another without cause. People need to have a maintenance program to maintain their connection to God and if that connection has been severed then there is a reason for that
