    Fear of the Lord

    Anyone else here think that much of the trouble for the church today is because too many Christians do not fear the Lord?

    Understanding the Bible.

    reading the bible I sometimes end up scratching my head over the bible. But of course, like lawrensons writes, it's no ordinary book. The books of the bible were written by a variety of people for a variety of audiences, over a long period of time. I agree with lawrensons, the Gospel's are...

    Why I'm a Christian

    It's OK Being the son of God is OK. I am also the son of Nicholas. He has another son besides me, and a daughter. So does God, and lots of them! I don't want to write more here as this is the wrong thread for theology or interpretaion of scripture. I do know others who had experiences like...

    What's your favourite Worship Song?

    Why I'm a Christian

    Christian Insomniacs Thread

    midnight oil Hello. I just noticed this thread. Not that there's much on it. I suppose we're up late to work on something or other. I tend to do coding and research at night - about the only time I'm guaranteed a half-decent amount of peace and quiet.
