Christforums

.... 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.

Prayers for justme

My kidneys have now taken a serious turn for the worst. My kidneys are dumping magnesium. I have been taking 630cmg of magnesium a day for several years, but now the kidneys are dumping it instead of holding it. The next step looks like weekly IV's of magnesium. This is a very serious situation as it means my kidneys are now entering a much slippery slope. I am very discouraged.

 

Please pray for my depression

Prayers are with you. My dad's brother was on dialysis for 7 years and my dad also had kidney issues, though late in life.

I will definitely pray for you. Just remember that Christ is your strength and that He will never fail you. "Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God" Acts 14:22.

 

I'm curious, how much meat and dairy do you consume on a daily basis? These foods are well known to cause a lot of toxin buildup, which the kidneys have to clean up, and a high protein diet also causes the kidneys and liver to work overtime to rid the body of all the excess garbage. Just some food for thought. God bless you as you continue to look to Jesus for your strength.

I eat very little. Thank you for your prayers.

Thank you all for your prayers. My depression has passed.

 

This problem of my kidneys dumping magnesium is not new, but has been controlled by taking large amounts of it. Last year in February I went into acute kidney failure, which lasted into May. Then last November and into mid December I had kidney stones that stayed put for 19 days. The stones eventually passed, but stones remain in both kidneys and hopefully they stay put. All this has relieved there is something else causing these problems. The doctors are doing tests this week to see if they can find a reason for what is going on. We expect some information within two weeks. Several specialists have been consulted which is very unusual as my kidney doctor is considered on on the states best kidney doctors. He is a Professor at the University Medical School, so I do have the best working for me, besides the Great Doctor of all Jesus Christ.

 

God bless you all, and thank you so much for your continued prayers.
