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.

Favorite hymns and songs.

Recommended Posts

What are some of your favorite hymns?

 

Some of mine are: It is will with my soul, a beautiful song from a real life experience of deep sorrow yet peace in God's sovereignty and thankfulness of Christ sacrifice on the cross.

 

When the role is called up yonder, it was my grandmothers favorite.

 

Jesus loves me. Although it's usually sung as a children's song I still love this simple message of Christ love.

Trivia question, from which theological camp was the author of Amazing Grace from? Example: Arianism, Pelagian, Semi-Pelagian, Arminian, Calvinism, Universalism?

 

Answer: John Newton was a Calvinist!

 

God bless,

William

The song itself awnsers the question. Otherwise the song would be amazing works. Lol. Joking, but not really.

Hymns:

 

My most favorite is a little hymn "Praise God, from whom all blessings flow".

 

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;

Praise Him, all creatures here below;

Praise Him above, ye heav’nly host;

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!

 

Praise God the Father who’s the source;

Praise God the Son who is the course;

Praise God the Spirit who’s the flow;

Praise God, our portion here below!

 

And then:

  1. How Great Thou Art
  2. In Christ Alone.
  3. Ancient Words
  4. Amazing Grace

God bless,

William

That was a bit of a cheap shot ... but it was funny. Two thumbs up.

Oh Holy Night ... maybe not my favorite song, but I love the line "Fall on your knees!

Fall on your knees! O hear the angel voices!

O night divine, O night when Christ was born;

O night divine, O night, O night Divine.

 

William: Not sure if it is written by a Calvinist, but still good. (LOL)

And Can it Be was written by Charles Wesley yet it sounds very Reformed. I think Wesley was Reformed at heart, his mind just didn't know it.

Deade putting in my two cents:

 

1. How Great Thou Art

2. Amazing Grace

3. Blessed Assurance

4. Leaning on the Everlasting Arms

5. Victory in Jesus

6. Just a Closer Walk With Thee

7. Do Not Pass Me By

8. Love Lifted Me

9. I've Got a Mansion

10.What a Friend We Have in Jesus

 

That is just the top ten. I Know all the verses by heart as well as others:

 

11. Standing on the Promises of God

12. The Old Rugged Cross

13. I Love to Tell the Story

14. In the Garden

15. Farther Along

16. In the Sweet By and By

17. Shall We Gather at the River

18. Jesus Loves Me

 

I know all these by heart also. I sing at least 3 each night while trying to unwind for sleep. It is good for my memory too.

 

Yours,

Deade

Wonderful, wonderful hymns . . . many of them my "favorite" too . . .but one that always moves me to tears is "Fairest Lord Jesus" . . . partly because of the history, it was sung by the Crusaders on their way to Jerusalem.

 

(I am not advocating for the Crusades, there is a discussion/debate no one can "win," there just are not many hymns that I know that have that depth of historical context. Our Faith is almost 2,000 years "old'" but sometimes I think we forget that.)
