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.

I love my baseball team but they keep losing. I wish they would change managers.

Maybe they need to change owners, like Miami. Although a Yankees fan, and having the Nationals (Mets next year) farm club nearby, i love the fact that the Royals banned pornography in the clubhouse. The league should follow suit! Amen to that!

I am a Texas Rangers fan.

 

A baseball joke:

The starting pitcher kept walking batters, and those who didn't walk got hits, long, extra base hits, runs scored, and finally the Manager had to go to the mound

and get the ball from him.

"No, Coach! Don't take me out! I'm not even tired yet!"

"Yeah, son, but the outfielders are."

One of the times when Yogi Berra got fired as Yankees manager, he left two envelopes in the desk at his office.  He told the next mgr (Billy Martin?)

 

"Look - when things get rough and you don't know what to do - open the first envelope."

 

At some point the guy did. Inside was a note that said

"Blame it all on me",

so that manager went to Steinbrenner and said "I'm still workin' with what Yogi left me" and so on, and it seemed to work.

But things went even further south later - and the guy opened the second envelope.

Inside was a note that said:

 

"Prepare two envelopes".

 

Good ole Yogi.

 

"The future ain't what it used to be."
