Fenced Community

Christforums is a Protestant Christian forum, open to Bible- believing Christians such as Presbyterians, Lutherans, Reformed, Baptists, Church of Christ members, Pentecostals, Anglicans. Methodists, Charismatics, or any other conservative, Nicene- derived Christian Church.

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.

Please Pray for My Marriage

Recommended Posts

My wife filed for divorce. I do not want the divorce and I am praying she returns to me. We have been together for 19 years and married for 11 years. We met as teenagers, in fact. I would appreciate any prayers that you could offer. Thank you and God bless.

I'm definitely praying for you, brother. I know how painful divorce is.. my ex-wife divorced me four years ago and the pain of that process is unbelievable. God's blessings alight on you.

Dear brother have you got the LOVE DARE book yet? I am positive this book could very well save your marriage, even if she has actually divorced you. The Movie FIREPROOF is why the book was writen. Please dear Brother at least buy it and give what it says a effort. I know it works.

As my counselor for 2 yrs shared with me, he was divorced without wanting it a long time ago. This is a fallen world -- stuff happens -- he was on anti-depresants for several months. It can be a really tough world.

 

And, yes, hopefully with counseling -- the two of you Can get back together.

I'm no expert, but don't you have the right to not agree to a divorce? it was my understanding that there needs to be a valid reason for divorce, I'm guessing different places in the world have different rules. You're wife should be making an effort to make the marriage work out, it isn't you're fault here.. Prayers to you.

I didn't get the book yet but I watched the movie. It was excellent. I asked my wife to watch. Thanks for the advice.

Yeah, it is very depressing. I know why he was on anti-depressants. I really hope so. Thanks.

No, if one person wants a divorce here then it is granted. Thanks for your prayers!

Praying for you brother.

 

My first wife had divorced me too. My ex played some serious mental games. She told me she filed, and six months later she revealed she never filed. Three years later she really filed, and we divorced a couple of months after, and she was remarried three months later.

 

It wasn't until seven years later that I remarried.

 

All I can say is that divorce for me was like a glass step to my house. Every time I came home, there was that glass step with her corpse in it as a reminder to me daily of my failures.

 

Do everything in your own power CDF, keep faithful to God above all, but remember 1 Corinthians 7:15 exists.

 

God bless,

William

 

William within the denomination your in, don't they allow persons who are divorced, by no fault of their own to be in ministry? O know My SB denomination they do, it is entirely up to the local church really.

 

My wife and I have a genuine love, and ministered to people who have been going through a divorce or became divorced. We have tried to minister to those who are in the process of divorce and help with restoring, which is far easier than once divorce has happened.. Our counseling Center seldom was able to get people to slow down and rethink what they were doing. So often minds were made up, or someone was waiting on the side. Jesus is correct hardness of heart is always at the root.

 

All too often divorced Christians, suffer suck deep shame and even though the divorce was niot entirely their fault, the church treats them like second class Christians. I remind them ALL sin is forgiven the same way. 1 John 1:9 Recovering from divorce is as close to a mate dying as one con imagine. It is so very painful, some take several years to recover.

 

On a stress scale, which is numbered 1 to 100, divorce is 99. So the pain often takes several years to become close to pain free, but some pain resides for many years,.

Hang tough my brother.

 

My first wife walked out on me and our three sons! I know the pain you have. See if you have a divorce care in your area. it is a Christian based ministry that is a small group. I helped moderate one in my church for 2 years. You meet, watch a video, share thoughts, do some exercises and if the leaders know their stuff- design activities you can do as a group and help build a small community of like minded.

 

It definitely helps ease the pain and gets you to focus on the Lord in the midst of the storm!
