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.

It was just the Babylon Bee -- a government shut-down is threatened and the big decisions are Finally made. Think it's done intentionally just to keep us on edge. DACA is threatened now. It has been commented that Why Should people already here illegally be in any rush to leave or gain citizen ship. They're basically given everything they need. And it's Also been commented that 'someone' simply wants to bankrupt this country. Maybe put us into socialism.

My husband and I are retired -- so we're not reliant on our 'only ' monthly income. We figure that when our source of income goes out, we won't be the only one's suffering. No house payment or car payments or credit card indebtedness.

Social Security will be effected. as well no mail, Military families won't be paid, any one connected with the government will be effected. That also is the TSA workers at air ports. I receive medication by mail as so many do to. Banks depend upon the US Treasury, which could be close.

 

Those who are not dependent upon the Government in some way or fashion are unique. As we have now changed much of our daily lives are relied on the Government functioning.

As I recall -- people wanted something different in office -- 'this nation needs a Black president' -- well - - enough people voted to get him in. And to everyone's amazement - for that 2nd term. And, yes, we Have paid the price. Oh, ya, and then H.Clinton / Demos were So certain she'd get into office. And at Everyone's shock Donald Trump really Did make it into office. He's been getting lashed / slashed to pieces. And, yes, DACA -- all those young children getting into this country with their parents who are here illegally. Why can't Other countries take Most of them. There are enough people who want This country to go to socialism that it Might just work. And That is NOT GOOD.

 

So -- just in case there's a question -- I'm agreeing with you.

Many of those children have spent most ofl their lives in the US and don't know any other country. It would be cruel to force them to leave and start life over in a strange land. It isn't their fault their parents broke the law and they shouldn't be punished for it.

I resent our government being shut down for DACA. Especially when DACA does not expire until March!

If an American family with small children went to another country and entered without proper documentation -- what would happen to them as a family? In This country -- when parents are caught breaking the law and the police are called in. The parents are arrested and put in jail / prison and the children are put either with family members or go into CPS. -- foster families. And our foster system is over-loaded as it is.

 

And what about the kids who are old enough to know they are here illegally? Shouldn't They be held at least somewhat responsible? Or are they getting so many fringe benefits From the welfare system that they'd be crazy to do that.

 

Kind of that rock and a hard place. Start the citizenship process and learn English. And no leniency for any law broken. After all -- they shouldn't be here in the first place.

More scare tactics by the Republicrats.. No "essential" government services will be cut. People will still get their government checks.Frankly the way this government operates a shutdown would be a relief. Hence the reality that makes the satire work.Just a way for them to get people to accept more government spending.

A far cry from what the Founding Fathers intended.They wanted the government out of peoples lives.Now they have their tentacles in every area of life.
