Methodists, Charismatics, or any other conservative, Nicene- derived Christian Church.

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 got a warning at another board

Recommended Posts

On another board, I got a WARNING for my little ditty - because I was in a thread tagged DISPENSATIONALISTS ONLY...

 

So I'll try it here...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My hope is built on nothing less
than Scofield's notes and Walvoord's best
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
but wholly lean on Darby's claim

( C'mon, everybody! All together now on the chorus! )

On Christ the Solid Rock I stand
Eschatology is sinking sand
Eschatology is sinking sand

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It was said to be "mocking"; this and two other verses were deleted, I hope to re-create them.

I thought it was funny.

It is funny and some Christians are stuffed shirts.

I tried to say that I was a "True Dispensationalist" - believing in an Old and a New Covenant - and that the Church was not a parentheses; I didn't get away with it.

 

Anyway, I only got one penalty point - so I still got "three fouls to give" before an involuntary 3 month vacation there.

I think I can understand why some would think its offensive. Why did you consider how some might feel you were making fun of them? It appears at least the moderator did not see your intended fun loving post.

 

Don't take it to hard, just move on and enjoy it here.

I heard a slightly different version of this poem.  The second line was "Scofield notes and Moody Press."  The person who told it to me was a student at Moody Bible Institute at the time, which might account for the difference.
