Same, guest. Same.

Re: Recent teachings

What spirit are people being led by. How do they know its the Holy Spirit. What's the difference between following 'the spirit' and doing what you actually want. Great questions, guest. I've asked myself the same things. I think a good place to start is Galatians 5, for example: ‭ Galatians 5:22-26...

Re: Recent teachings

It's terrifying to think that anyone could so eloquently use God's good Word to justify abusive behavior. Yes there are false teachers and false prophets outside of xCF, but that does not ipso facto make xCF a paragon of truth. I won't pass judgment here (I leave that to Jesus) but I can't help but ...

Re: Mental health recovery after CF.

By the time I started school I had strong suicide ideation. I think this is something that would merit further investigation within the xCFs although I don't know how trustworthy any data would be; I don't think it's the kind of thing many people would be honest about. I certainly fell into that ki...

Re: How the Christian Fellowship Pray?

Benny Hinn made similar curses in the 90s. I don't know if he still does but I still steer clear of him just in case.

This Q & A session covered some diverse topics, but of interest to former or current xCF members may be the discussions on Communion, Slavery, Works-based Christianity, and Psychology. Timestamps are in the video description if you want to skip to a particular topic: https://www.youtube.com/live...

As a guess, I’d say that’s a lot of people logging in as a guest. Right on Easter weekend too.

Re: The Nature Of Our Fellowship

(insert Elton John boogie) This made me lol Thanks for the encouragement. It is hard to fight the inertia of deeply ingrained traditions. Someone recently shared a song by Keith Green called "So you want to go back to Egypt?" which kind of hit home for me. In some ways it would have been ...
