Hello All. Am Here To Find Meaning Back In Life

  1. Once more, greetings in Christ! My display name w2lx means 'want 2 love Christ'. I'd want to love him, but alas I can't for now. He seems all a fairy tale. I sometimes resort to the history books to make him have meaning in my life, but I keep hearing I should have personal relationships with him. And history makes him no more than 'one of the rest'. I hope you'll help me find him to be true.

    I'll have time to share more of my story with you. Thanx.

  2. Welcome:

    We are living in an age of 'Faith'; and being a "Christian" is not all sunshine & roses. In fact, the Bible teaches the opposite if we are truly following the ways of Christ.

    There's a special Easter message I heard this week by Chip Ingram (livingontheedge.org/, livingontheedge.org/free-mp3-download). It might help you? He talks about the "facts" of Christ's resurrection.

    God left this note for you:

    ...God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them... And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

    Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. ...Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

    This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

    Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

    I am the way, the truth and the life.


    Jesus the Christ-Son of the Living God

    The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.

    For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.But God commandeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

    With Love,

    Paul-Apostle to the Gentiles
  3. Hello & welcome to the forums :)

    That's a really nice username you got there. I just wanted to say that whether you believe it or not you were led here by God. Also the fact that you want to know more about Christ is Christ himself beckoning you to come and follow him. He is as real as you and me and once you accept him and make him Lord and Savior of your life there is no turning back.

    Please do share your story!!

    God Bless
