  1. Hello from Australia

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Brad and I am new to this forum. I was involved in another forum (matthew 7) a while ago but I took a different road but now I am back. I did try and start up the M7 forum but it hasnt really worked so I thought I would jump onboard here.

    I am in desperate need of chatting with Christians. I hope to make new friends and get to know you guys really well.

    Thanks! :)
  2. Hi Caveman,

    Welcome from another Aussie! I'm from a little country town in Vic. Where are you?


  3. Hi Lynn,

    I am also in country Vic but a main regional area if that makes sense. I live in Bendigo. Where are you from?
  4. Brad, you were sent an email from c28. Did you get it?
  5. I'm out in the Latrobe Valley, in west Gippsland.



  6. Hi Brad and welcome to CFS. You will find this a welcome place to discuss with other Christians who also want to grow in Jesus Christ.

    God Bless and please review the forum rules . Thank You .

  7. Hi Brad this is Larry (Boanerges)- welcome to the CFS family:)!
    You have come to the right place for loving, friendly Christian fellowship.
    Here you will find many different denominations, opinions and teachings- for the most part we have one common goal and that to help each other grow in the knowledge and relationship with our God through our Savior Jesus Christ and in the power of the Holy Spirit.
    I am blessed to see you here!:D
  8. Welcome to Christian Forum Site, Brad. :israel:
  9. Hi Jeff,

    Yes I did receive the email and funny enough I just received my books in the mail today. I apologise Jeff as I thought I had replied saying I got the email.

    Thank you very much for all your assistance. I hope the books I have purchased give me more knowledge on my journey to Christ. :)
  10. Thats a very nice area Lynn. I just hope that the bush fires are not too bad this summer although I fear the worst!

    I also signed up at the website you had in your signature. The social network. What is your experience with that site?
  11. Hi Brother Larry! I have really craved discussing religion and it is awesome to know someone here. I am still along way off being happy in my journey but I am hoping to ask a few questions here and get some good chat happening.

    I hope that sounds ok.
  12. Hi Caveman,

    ChristianAussies is my site - I just put it up a few days ago. Whilst I love our American brothers and sisters, the web is very much dominated by the USA, so I thought it would be really good to have a place where Aussies could hang out together. So, when the script became available about a week ago, I bought it, played with it a bit, and ta-da! there we are.

    I'm currently working on trying to publicise it, because to make it work properly we need a reasonable number of active members. Thanks for joining!

    Bushfires ... we can but pray for the Lord's protection. I was in the CFA for a while ... until I managed to fall of the fire truck at training one day. Fractured my wrist, and they decided they didn't want me. :confused: Never mind - when the fires were so bad a couple of years ago, I was kinda glad I wasn't out there battling them.

  14. Hey welcome to the forums Ive moved to Melbourne from Auckland 2 months ago and liking it here.

    All the best
  15. WOW you are nearly a neighbour! :)
  16. Hi Jake,

    Where in Melbourne are you living? I grew up in Melbourne in a suburb called Coburg. Nice to meet you Jake. :)
  17. Hi Lynn,

    My experience with websites and forums is that you need to be patient and get a core group of people to post on the forums so they tick over. A high percentage of people will read the forums but not participate until they are comfortable and some people are just happy to read messages.

    I am happy to post and help get the forum going!

    Take care :)
  18. That is what we are here for my friend!:D

    You will find all the answers you are looking for in the unsearchable riches of the One who created everything and that is Jesus Christ the Lord.
    Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
    Joh 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
    Joh 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
    Joh 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
    Joh 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
    Joh 1:6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
    Joh 1:7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
    Joh 1:8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
    Joh 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
    Joh 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
    Joh 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
    Joh 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
    Joh 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
    Joh 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

    Many blessings on your day Brad, your brother Larry.
  19. Thanks Brad and I apologize for the delay.
    By the way, I stayed at Flora Hill, Bendigo for 1 year and 3 months to do my Masters in Business Administration at Latrobe University before moving to Melbourne. :)
  20. Hi Jeff,

    I just completed my Bachelor of Education at La Trobe University! Where in Melbourne do you live now? It is definately a small world.
