Post Reply Also leaving...
Posted 3/29/08 , edited 5/7/08
I am supposed to become the leader of this group again when Faeleia leaves. We will miss Faeleia, but you know, she's not really leaving us. You'll still be able to talk to her through messages, and even if she were to leave crunchyroll, she will always be our sister of christ.

When Fae first told me she was leaving, and that I was going to be the leader of the group again, I didn't know if I could handle it. So much has been going on in my life, that's one of the reasons I haven't been active in the group. Everyday is just something amazing, God has blessed me so much with so much happiness, and so much suffering. He has broken me apart, shown me how much I need Him, taught me how to love, told me I need self control, told me not to worry. God has given me the confidence to know that with Him, I can lead a group. Mainly because it's only a title, the real leader is God. He is the one who guides us.

As creator of this group, I want to tell you what my original intent for this group was. What I searched for was a fellowship on crunchyroll, I didn't expect a certain number of members, I didn't know there were going to be so many members. My intention wasn't really a group that just debates about topics that are christian related, such as abstinence, homosexuality, whether everyone goes to Heaven. That's not what this group is all about, this group is just about glorifying God. It's about our relationship with Him.

So, I've decided not to lead this group. When Faelia leaves, soon_doo_bu will become leader of this group. I'm going to start another group, and leave this one.

This is what my new group will be about:
1.) We believe the only way to heaven is to accept Jesus as your saviour.
2.) We believe when we are saved, we begin a relationship with God.
3.) We believe everything in the bible is truth.

People who don't believe this can join the new group, however, they must accept that the focus of the group is based on these beliefs.

In my new group, rather than arguing, rather than debating, let's focus on our relationship with God. This group was created for fellowship. We don't have to look for contraversal subjects to post. In my new group, I want them to be more meaningful. Let's learn about the people suffering out in the world that we can pray for, let's talk about what God is doing in our lives, what we can do for God, let's study the bible, ask for prayer requests. I don't want one general topic on each of these, I want a topic to be created for each person's prayer requests, about everytime God does something amazing in your life that you'd like to share, a topic per every topic in the bible, just everything. As if you were sharing something at prayer meeting, or bible study, share with us in that free manner. That was my original intent for this group, it will be my intent for my new group.

The new group will be called Children of God. It will be a closed group. If you are a christian who is looking for fellowship, than you can join. You can also join if you aren't a christian, but are curious about Jesus.

You can find the new group here:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/group/Children_of_God

So, I'm leaving too. You don't have to join the new group, I will always be your sister in Christ. I hope some of you will join the new group. Like Fae, you can always message me, so don't feel as if I am leaving you just because I'm leaving this group. See you around.

Um in all seriousness are you making it closed because you want to keep people (like me) who challenge your faith out? Cos to be honest the way you put that sounds almost like you are hiding from the controversial subjects so you can go and live in your own 1 dimensional world where there is only one opinion that is accepted as valid. I don't really care even if that is what you are doing to be honest I just thought I should tell you that that is the distinct impression about your new group your post left with me. If this is not your intended purpose for your new group I suggest you rephrase your post a bit so others don't get the wrong impression like me. (I assume you don't want such a group so I'm assuming my impression is wrong)

You guys are missing the point! they're not avoiding controversial topics...face it...there will always be controversial topics when it comes to Christianity and there will never be an answer that everyone agrees with...in other words these subjects are blown out of proportion! What reallly really really matters (can't stress this enough) is our relationship with God, how we plan to grow closer to him daily, and how we plan to win souls for Christ...and i promise you arguing controversial topics will never help you grow closer to God or win souls for Christ.

I don't know if that justifies why lumiina and fae are leaving but I'm sure they're thinking kind of the same thing? lol

I never joined a Christian group to debate about controversial things. Do you feed babies with fish that has bones and expect them to know how to remove it? The job of believers is to continously seek the Lord. Anything apart from that is simply trusting in flesh. Flesh antagonizes flesh. As you can see, you may be a Christian, but have temper problems. The answer, is not to train by having more debates! The answer is Christ. Knowing more about the Lord's love for you will translate into humility, peace, joy and love for others.

If you have doubts and queries that you don't know is true or not, the answer is not to ask for more opinions! Instead, born again have the Holy Spirit to enable believers to understand and by keeping a pliable and teachable heart, answers will be given.

If you need faith, the answer is not to compare with others! We are all on a journey. We can only encourage, but faith comes from God and God alone. God shows himself from faith to faith, and faith apart from works is dead. Simply believing without an action to affirm that belief is dead in itself.

When you suffer a backlash and reprove, the answer is not to attack back in anger. Discern, with the spirit. The bible says that faithful are the wounds of a friend, only those who love you. Accusations, and judgements that come from various sources unknown to you are tactics of the devil, to get you to fall out of love with people, then bring the law upon you by making you feel guilt. Usually the person who attacks you is not directly at fault, but is mainly echoing the voice of the devil, and what they hear in the world. Point him back to Jesus, for as He is in Heaven, so are you in this World.

You may be in this world, but you are not of this world. Your identity comes from the decree from God. If you believe Him, believe his words are as powerful as him. God is reserved with words, because they are powerful. In making you a child of God, he puts on you righteousness and honor. If you realise what it means, hold your tongue. For the Bible says, a man who controls his tongue can control his body, and it works as a double edged sword. A bad tongue is not one that speaks vulgarities, negative things, but a mixture. Tongues that curse and bless. From the same source out comes tainted things, doubts, and questions. God is not an author of confusion, his thoughts of you are to bless and not to harm. What is put into a man's mouth does not defile, but what comes out from the tongue defiles the body. Value the body as a temple of God. He dwells in life. Therefore cherish yourself, cherish life and do not defile the body.

Faith comes by relying on the word of God despite seeing or not, feeling or not, hearing or not. Faith and sight is different. You may not feel righteous, therefore take it by faith.
