Read John 15:1-6, now look at the following verses:
1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the vintner. 2 He cuts off every branch that does not produce fruit in me, and he cuts back every branch that does produce fruit, so that it might produce more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of what I’ve spoken to you.
4 Abide in me, and I will abide in you. Just as the branch cannot produce fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me. 5 I am...
Let me start by saying that I've never, not even once, seen the indoctrination of children explained to be a bad thing by any Christian. I've never seen one Christian rebuke another for the practice. In fact I don't even know if I've ever even seen a Christian even address this issue at all, apart from perhaps 1.) when a Christian is questioned on it by an atheist, or 2.) when a Christian remarks that someone is not raising their children properly (seeming to indicate a pro-indoctrination...
What do you think about the return of Jesus? Why is it taking so long? I can't help but notice as I read the NT that it seems like it should have happened in that setting. Even old Paul seemed sure his return was imminent. Plus there is that verse about the current generation not passing before his return. Honestly it's a big hurdle, especially with all the end time nuts making endless predictions that never come to pass.
Curious what some of the good Christians in this sub-forum...

While there have been false teachers and false prophets since the birth of Christianity, do you think that the problem is getting worse?
My main concern that I see is with two sections within the church -- those who are extremely theologically liberal (by that I mean those who claim the Christian name, but who do not believe in Jesus' deity, in the concept of sin, in the need for a Savior, deny Jesus'...
If evolution is one of the strongest explanatory theories in any academic field, I mean, the evidence is simply overwhelming, how do Christians reconcile this?
What about the Biblical scholars that generally dismiss Genesis as a "historical" representation... but rather "myth" (however you want to define that)?
I understand I'm courting "controversy" here, but I'd genuinely like to hear this, supposedly, untouchable theological answer.
White people blaming imaginary black people for crimes is nothing new.
I have already discussed my understanding of 'mental disorders' mostly being 'demon' inspired. Not going to go back and talk about it 'again'.
But I will point out that there are more people on 'mental medications' today than any time in history. We are a 'people' of 'mental disorders' today. Not going to quote statistics. Anyone that has an interest, a true interest, already knows what I'm talking about and that what I speak concerning 'numbers' is truth.
But what I want to focus on in...
This post is in response to this response http://www.christianforums.com/thre...ords-day-sunday.7966382/page-18#post-70193626 in the thread "Should Christians rest on the Sabbath (saturday) and rejoice on the Lords day (sunday)?"
I will try to keep the quoting correct but I may be off and it was not intentional.
I am on my cellphone so it is not as easy to me respond in line.
My post was not so much a response...
Luke 1:41-44, for example: "When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit . . . . As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy."
The quoted Bible verse describes fetuses in the womb as babies, or in other words living humans.
There are some liberal Christians out there who believe that a woman has the right to choose an abortion if her pregnancy is inconvenient, not realizing...
