Greetings I found this site after googling "christians only forum". I've been involved with several forums over the years consisting of believers and non-believers. They seemed to be characterized either by non-Christians ridiculing our faith or by Christians sacrificing truth in an attempt to pacify non-believers and keep them around to hear the Gospel. My calling is to build up the body of Christ through Biblical teaching, so these other forums did not allow me to fulfill this ministry without much controversy and stress. I'm 45, married with 5 kids ages 5-15. I've been saved since 1990. I'm a pastor/teacher who's been homechurching for the last 2 years. According to what I've found in many churches, I seem to have some very peculiar ideas of what "church" is and what is supposed to be going on in the church meeting. My ideas are simple: we meet with other believers in an open and honest way that enables each to use his or her spiritual gift, no games, no deceit, no non-Biblical traditions that exist without purpose. My favorite story is the one about the little girl who asks her mother why she cuts the ends off the pot roast before putting it in the pan. Anyway, I look forward to getting to know everyone.
