Um. Close this? It might discourage memberships. A church always opens its doors to people. I suppose we can have ... testimonies?

but how about other new members that wants to join... if its closed..il feel bad for them.. but if its closed... we can still invite people right?

but its going to take time for people to trust people here...especially seeing that atheists can contradict them at thier testimonies and thier problems at any time

Well it's a person's choice if they want to put private matters online right? idk...or we can have a thread where they post their user names so that people can message their walls and talk to them personally...and they can go back to the thread and delete their names if they dont want to be bothered anymore....?...lol sounds like a good idea to me!!! yay!~~~~~~

ummm.... guys.. i sometimes copy paste some of the articles about God and Jesus here and transfer it to my friendster.. so that my friends that are not into crunchyroll can read it... just now, i spread the skit about everything by lifehouse...

and i sent them messages one by one... lol.. even my mom..

i want them to know Jesus love for me... and i want to share my experiences..so that they may understand.. not one of them(except my cousins 3 of them in fact), havent recived Jesus yet.. or they might not have shared.. i noticed that most of my friends are into suicide, drinking and all... my friends in the friendster community are really busy in thier school and all.. but then i want all of this to reach them...

so i hope its ok that if ever you have any views about Christ that is about Good News.. id copy paste them and send it to my friends?? if its ok?

It's hard to try to decide where this forum should be heading. However I know that we do not need argumentative topics. We dont need people arguing all of the time but we do need people asking questions. We need to have discussions, not arguments, but discussions on topics that can be hard on people. Life is not going to be easy just because we are Christians, instead it will get harder and harder because Satan is fighting against us. I think that, instead of arguing, instead of letting our pride get in the way, we need to discuss things, things that are of importance in ever day life, not just encouragements, although they are very important in and of themselves, but places where Christians can talk about their beliefs and raise questions. It is something that the church does not do, it is all about obeying and not asking questions when the Bible CLEARLY states that we need to ask questions and if something is not biblical then it is not truthful. And we need to ask questions about the Bible because a lot of it is metaphor and allusion. We cannot take the Bible at Face value because
a) it's been translated from the original text and
b) we are not the original audience.
The Forums need to be here, in my opinion. They give us the freedom to communicate and the tools to discuss. I think these forums are a great tool because, not only do I get to give my western views on chrisitanity, but I get to also hear views of Chrisitanity from cultures far away from my own (e.g. Japan) and i find it a very good learning experience. However the forums do need to be regularly monitored and we need to make sure that they are not being abused. it is very easy to abuse something that gives a person freedom and if someone ends up abusing the forums I think they should be blocked from the forums. It's as simple as that.

Hey emm, try to get them to come in here instead I don't mind if they create accounts just to participate in our group, because like you said, it's tiring to continously spreading links and all through personal messages. And thanks, if you were doing invites. But seriously, has people started coming in of their own accord, or they were invited? (In fact, I'll start a thread about that soon)

^Styx (sorry river and sticks I prefer sticks. Unless it's not even meant to be pronounced as sticks then I've got problems Hahah) : Yep, the Bible was definitely translated into many many versions. However I trust in anoited pastors to uncover more meanings for us, as we also do our OWN Bible study. It's important that you do your own, but it'll take another mini sermon for me to explain.

In the mean time, I'm going to create another thread which I think is very necessary, but please don't see it as a form of discord.

Don't do your best. Leave that 'best' to Jesus, and he'll do HIS best, which is the very best you know you'll get. He'll work miracles through different means and ways (through you too), and knowing Jesus, he's very creative. Haha!

I have a feeling that you guys only enjoy arguing and talking. Do you all even read articles? Because I dont' think I want to channel my efforts in the wrong place here.

I'm seeing so many argumentative threads now, and seriously, I'm saddened, because God is not there. My stand is that I'm not going to explain more than I need to for atheists. They have been around for some time, they know where to find explanations. Yet everywhere I see, people are taking so much time just to argue with them. Do you need to win battles to prove who you are? Does the opinion of others matter more than what God thinks of you?

What do you want to see in this forum? Skeptical topics that atheists and christians often argue about? Because it can be done. This is a forum for all, but my goal is to focus on Him and him alone. Where He is I will be. If he's not around, I not going to stay here either. I won't have time to continuously be in this group to moderate.

I initially wanted this place to be somewhere to build the faith level of believers up. I dont' need to tell you that this is not happening.

So, what do you guys want?



Every time I come to the forums, I always expect to argue back. And that's partly my fault; I let my pride take over and join in the argument, and that shouldn't be the case. I also want this forum to be a place where we exhort others in their walk with God.



Pride is a bad thing pride is what God consider deadly because pride is what causes selfishness and its great that you realize that its pride even i have trouble realizing my selfish pride! I join this because i want to talk GOD AND JESUS and share my knowledge with those who are thirsty for his words!
