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.

‘Trump Was Merely Sharing The Gospel With That Porn Star,’ Explains Jim Bakker

Recommended Posts

BLUE EYE, MO—Squashing accusations that President Trump had a sexual encounter with porn star “Stormy Daniels” while he was married to Melania, televangelist Jim Bakker explained to his audience Friday that he had confirmed that Trump was merely scheduling private time with the woman in a hotel suite in order to share with her the […]

It is amazing how Evangelicals will go to great lengths to justify Trump. Again the Bee comes through with great perception of modern Evangelical culture.

If what we have heard that President Trump has become a Christian, as Christians we too must remember our sins are like the dirtiest rags. Mr. Trump has no right to judge me, and I will do the same for him.

 

Point to remember is this was over a decade ago. Why do you think the woman made this public now, rather than when he was ruining for president? I wonder who paid her to bring this out now, and how much she was paid.

 

THIS IS JUST MORE DIRTY POLITICS.

So true -- I saw the OP and figured it was the 'Bee' bumbling' , yet again. And, let's see -- How many presidents have messed around either before or during their presidencies --won't bother naming any names. As long as Pres. Trump is attempting to 'drain the swamp" - the Pro swampers will attack him every time he opens his mouth/ moves. :)

Will you not edify your brethren if you see them at fault in doctrine or in life? As our leaders will you not hold them to a higher standard?

 

Just because one professes to be Christian does not free them from duty or obligation. Imagine when David sinned against Uriah, do you think Nathan the prophet just overlooked David's sins because he was king of Israel (and a believer in God)?

That is for sure. There have been So Many 'sexual harrassment' complaints surfacing it gets Ridiculous. And most of those men have stepped down from their positions. I suppose Next it will be Pres. T. who some people will feel that He should step down -- from the Presidency no less. Just doesn't happen that way.

I can't see Trump stepping down. They would have to impeach him and I am not sure they have the votes to convict at the moment at least.(assuming as is so often the case the vote goes down party lines)

Having an affair is Not an impeachable offense. People may not approve of his personal life, but poor morals is not impeachable.

Look at what Bill Clinton was willing to do (lie under oath) in order to prevent public knowledge of an affair. Having an affair makes the office of POTUS vulnerable to blackmail. As an example, hey Bill, do this or that or I'll expose your affair and dirty secrets with Monica. An affair is an issue of national security.

I know that what I meant was that he would not resign. That if those who would want him out of office would have to go the impeachment route. Not based on his affairs but on impeachable offences (violating his oath etc..) If affairs were impeachable offenses Clinton and Kennedy at least would have been subjects in the matter.

Romans 13:1-7 NASB

1 Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves. 3 For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same; 4 for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil. 5 Therefore it is necessary to be in subjection, not only because of wrath, but also for conscience’ sake. 6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for rulers are servants of God, devoting themselves to this very thing. 7 Render to all what is due them: tax to whom tax is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor.

 

Clinton - Bush - Obama - Trump ... This is my position on all of them. The time to oppose and criticize and tear down and treat them with contempt, if one feels so inclined, is before they are elected. Once elected, God has placed them in authority over our nation and they deserve a certain respect for holding that position. We should pray to God if we have concerns, not slander our leaders in casual conversations.

How about Nixon -- Watergate scandal. He stepped down - Before impeachment proceedings could start? My opinion -- Clinton and Obama have been impeachable. If not impeachable -- Highly , Highly questionable.

 

You're right -- no one gets into office by mistake. And this world is getting muckier by the minute. This government shut-down is an example.
