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.

Church of Beyonce?

Recommended Posts

There's a crazy story floating around the internet, singer Beyonce bought an old church in New Orleans. There was already a Beyonce mass held in one church and some of her so called "Christian" fans have made something called the Beyonce Bible. 

Apostasy is crazy these days, it's barley surprising anymore, and you can't expect much of anything good to come from New Orleans, not tryin to throw dirt on anyone's home town, but that place wicked.

California Episcopal Church Holds 'Beyoncé Mass' Where Hundreds 'Worship' With Her Songs

A church in San Francisco, California is raising eyebrows with an unlikely event they are calling a "Beyoncé Mass."
 
With hundreds in attendance, Grace Cathedral Church says the event is a chance for people to find God through secular music. Others calling it "evil," saying they're trying to substitute Jesus with Beyoncé.
 
In the Facebook video, the congregation is seen leading worship to a set of Beyoncé songs, while the crowd dances, sings and raises their hands to the tunes.
 
"We have a community that is youthful and loving and looks to the world as a partner, not an enemy," Reverand Jude Harmon said speaking to the crowd.

That's like thier statement of apostasy, "We have a community that is youthful and loving and looks to the world as a partner....

As a partner? A partner in wickedness?

Shades of the now defunct First Church of Tiger Woods that once had this url:

 

http://www.tigerwoodsisgod.com/

 

And this blurb:

 

"This website is the official home of the "First Church of Tiger Woods" and is dedicated to examining the possibility that God is walking the earth as a 21st century, multi-ethnic, superstar golfer and whether that is any more or less likely than God coming in the form of a first-century, Jewish carpenter."

 

Before this announcement:

 

"Tiger is clearly no longer deserving of being seen as a role model or a hero and he has needlessly squandered his unique potential to be a positive force in our country and the world."

 

The so-called National Church of Bey established a website as far back as 2014. When our ekklesia got word of it we thought it was a spoof, or rip-off  to mock Christianity, as per this quote from its site, which also asks if whomever has accepted Beyonce as their Lord & Saviour and reminds them to read their Beyble:

 

"As our congregation continues to swell, we ask that you consider what is more real; an invisible spirit on high, or a walking, talking, breathing Goddess who shows you her true form daily. Beyonce’s spirit is entrancing. We know that she was sent to this place to spread love, peace, and joy. While we do not believe Beyonce to be the Creator, we recognize that she still sits among the throne of Gods. There is a lot of false information being spread about our beliefs, but we will correct all of the vicious lie-tellers.  As Beyonce spreads her gospel through song and dance, her message  provides uplifting, loving, and many times real-life happenings. We humbly ask you to respect our beliefs, just as you want those to respect yours. Open your mind to new possibilities and you will see, just as we did, that Bey is a true higher power. xxxxxxx!"

 

Truly our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Eph 6:12)

I love the Common People of the Swamp Lands.  They work hard, love hard and they make great soldiers.  But if a man or a woman have never spent a week or two in the French Quarter, they can have no idea how evil it is.

 

Any Christian man or woman that can stroll through the Quarter and not feel the Evil Spiriit's hate of them is in some form of trouble, eternally.  Before I was a Christian and I was still performing, I loved thed wsomen, the booze and the curses.  (I was evil and I beloj ged there with Fats and the rest of them.

 

If you worship YHWH daily, do not even consider NOLA.

About a year ago I passed through  New Orleans on my way to a Carnival Cruise my boss gave me as a gift. Although I was thankful to my boss for such an expensive gift, the whole experience was just terrible. Cruise ships are like a floating bar room for rich people.
