My son recommended it when I was in grief over a close pet that went on. I was on here 24/7 for a week like I was loco, but I've been delivered from the loss and I thank God for this site that kept me busy. I think I replied to every comment on the board, lol, people asked me about it and were very obliging when I explained.
If we tithe 10% and obey God’s Will, we get to live in our Father’s House on Earth. If we don’t, we struggle all our life financially and never have enough or we have more than we need and get in trouble!
It’s best to just let Father provide as we have need. Give our 10% and let our Father provide.
After Earth, the body has to stay on Earth but, our spirit and soul leave Earth.
My wife is a firm believer of tithing in both thought and practice. While I do not entirely agree with tithing I do feel that we should be good stewards of what God has entrusted to us and should help the less fortunate. As her husband I abide by my wife's decision regarding tithing because if left solely up to me I would probably squander the 10% in a trivial pursuit. You are correct in saying that is indeed the Father that provides for us.
I came to talk to like-minded people. Sometimes one can be surrounded by people and have no one to talk to or feel they have no one for fear of not living up to expectations and others judgement.
I come back because I have made friends with a few people and chat regularly with them on here. I also enjoy reading others perspectives on CC with various topics and the poetry forum
Isn't it amazing how you can feel that way, surrounded by people yet, lonely. That's something I've experienced at times. It's an odd, but very real thing. I'm so glad you've made connections! I will have to check out the poetry forum!
**sighs** how quickly a thread degrades into answering a question that was not asked..........................
To answer the OP, I joined here in December of 2010 just prior to the Great CC Crash of 2011 where several months worth of posts (and new profiles) were lost thus my account showing my join date in Jan 2011 just after the site came back on line. At the time (thanks to the economy tanking) I had been out of work for a couple of months and was in a really bad spot emotionally as a result.
At that time all of my time on site was spent in the chat rooms whereas now I almost never log into chat.
I have been privileged to serve on site staff since initially as a chatroom Moderator and later as an Administrator since June of 2011.
I was feeling a great loss after losing my mom very unexpectedly. Shortly after a relationship that I had thought would lead to marriage. I felt pretty empty, confused and alone. I needed to be amongst others who stood on faith and believed that God has us in his loving care even when we feel so lost. You all have been wonderful spiritual therapy.
After my wife passed away and the newness of the situation wore off and became a new normal (that's the best I can describe it now) and as people that were involved a lot slowly went back to their own lives I was looking for some people to talk to.
My daughter and I used a texting/chat app to text each other. This app had chat groups you could join, so I did. I found that there are a lot of scammers and catfishers. I had enough of that and was tired of the not so clean chat. I found CC on the playstore. I downloaded it and tried it a few times here and there. It was hard for me to follow. I had that probably a year till I realized there was a website with forums.
Fellowship with those in the same situation as people devoted to Christ seeking our marriage partners. I feel to know one is not alone in this walk and has brothers and sisters marching to the gate with them towards the Father is a comforting thing.
I got on here to promote my books and because I was lonely for fellowship. Also to see how peoples' level of faith was progressing. After learning that many people have thrown off the fables that were started by the RCC, I was pleasantly surprised.
I was astounded how much knowledge the online brethren had compared to the average pew warmers. I was also surprised that many strong Christians haven't been attending brick and mortar churches.
