Very well said brother! We see many stopping at salvation and resting there, there is so much more to being his hands and feet here in this last of the last days.
Blessings to you brother, in Jesus name.

Here I am allowed to be my truest self. I am not a role, I am part of God's family. Please understand that I'm not trying to sound sanctimonious. My life had hit a time of such pain and sadness that I didn't know what to do. This site allowed me to talk about things that matter, laugh a little and be permitted to walk along others for a few moments. Yes there are people who are reacting out of pain, or anger, pride or wounded pride. There are also others who support, encourage, share scripture and pieces of their hearts.
I don't understand people being ugly in the name of Christ. You don't understand it either because of who you are. Continue to be who you were crafted to be. Thank you.
There's a huge possibility that I may have found a place where I can fully share my challenges too. Thanks to help from my friends who are wonderfully non-judging.:)

The sad part is that many only stop at that entrance way and miss the depth of relationship that is possible. It is like having the wedding ceremony and saying "well I guess that is done" and not going on to the actual marriage. They encourage others to get married, which is good, but it is only the start of it all. I believed in the mercy and grace of Christ but it was only after years of walking with him that I saw how amazing that grace really was/is. When I was young I accepted that he loved and forgave me because I felt I was a reasonably good kid but as life goes on you start to see the sin, the attitudes, hardness of heart etc.. You have more and more difficulty with accepting forgiveness and you see that grace was much bigger than you thought. At times you despair and I knew I wanted to tell God to give up on me. I thought that I if I was growing I would need grace less (hey I didn't say I was brilliant). I came to realize that saying I wasn't worthy was true but also a form of pride. I wanted to outgrow my need for grace. Of course that is ridiculous and no one in their right mind would have this as a conscious thought, but in truth when we hide from God it is what we are saying. At some point, hopefully, we come to the point of realizing that God's grace covers our entire life and that he knew, when he saved us, everything we would ever do. That is earth shaking. All of these things and more wait beyond the entrance way. Thank you Lord for your miraculous patience with us.

The above question is asked in all insincerity,not for the sake of disparing nor discouraging anyone!

1 Cor.11:18 For first of all,when ye come TOGETHER in the church,I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.

1Cor.3:3 For ye are yet CARNAL: for whereas there is among you ENVYINGS,AND STRIFE,AND DIVISIONS,are ye not CARNAL ,and walk as men?

I see sooooooo very much dissention,hateful speech,accusations,even enemity among those who claim they follow God!

Why do you come here.....?
Are you that miserable....?
Why hold onto things He can deliver you from?

I truly grieve to see this in Christian forums........

LET.........US..........PRAY..!
I came here when I had reach one of the lowest points in my life (my world had been turned upside down in my marriage, and at work) - seeking HIS grace...
I came here seeking Fellowship and found it very therapeutic to share, listen and learn as I continue to strive to become the best Christian version of myself possible...
I found this unique opportunity to also find a way to 'pay-it forward'... While so many were kind, understanding and welcoming in providing me hope, wisdom and encouragement along my journey - I found it even more therapeutic to provide the same assistance to others (where I could) in need of prayer, guidance, encouragement or fellowship...
I enjoy coming back to also enjoy the entertainment, a break from the monotony of being alone... I love the humor, and will even cook up some popcorn to sit back and enjoy some of the more engaging firework exchanges...
All of which serves to help me to continue to strive to seize the moral high ground along my journey to become a better more spiritual person/christian and good example for my kids...

Happy New Year to all here in CC!

I come here because, by comparison, it makes just about everyone at my church look like saints. Thank you for that.

I don’t remember why I came here at first, it’s years ago, maybe it had something to do with me being widowed recently, or that I needed to talk with someone I didn’t know. Maybe I was bored/sad/depressed etc.

The safe place to hide away from the real world and coming to another different world with people from around the world.
