    Unlimiting God

    An excellent sermon by Francis Chan. Give this a view and listen. He's inspiring and very passionate about Jesus Christ and us living fully for God's Kingdom.

    Parables of Jesus

    Jesus' parables are short stories that teach a moral or spiritual lesson by analogy or similarity. They are often stories based on the agricultural life that was intimately familiar to His original first century audience.

    Some aspect of an unfamiliar concept, such as the kingdom of God, was compared to something from everyday life that could easily be understood.

    There is a lot of noise, lots of "religions" and beliefs out there to confuse anyone. But, Jesus is real. He loves you, He's ready to forgive you for all your sins and make your heart His dwelling place. Read about God's characteristics and attributes and get to know the real Jesus today.

    Understanding Inadequacy

    Poor self-image. Past failures. Weak faith. We all feel inadequate in different areas of our lives. No one is adequate within themselves to be saved or to serve God effectively. We must respond to God’s call and rely on the Holy Spirit.

    Hi,
    I'm Plinshree. I'm really bad at making introductory posts.
    I've been voted most likely to become the crazy cat lady and I guess that pretty much sums me up. The more I'm around people the more I appreciate my cats and my very small, but closely knit circle of friends.


    I'm no stranger to Christianity but I struggle with it. To be honest all I see around me are Churches being run like businesses instead of ministries, and I won't even get started about the people I find there. or some of the things I've seen go on in these places.

    I think I'm just looking for a place with genuine believers that I could, perhaps, learn from as I go.
    I'm not the type you can stick in a neat little box with a neat little label. Anyway, hoping to get to know you through your posts and such.

    G'day Plinshree,

    Please don't blame God for the problems in Christianity.
    I agree with you about many modern churches.

    Aside from that it is good to fellowship with God's people.

    See you in chat !

    Oh no, I don't blame God. I feel badly that His Public Relations team sucks so badly sometimes. I think we will get on fine, Agua. Looking forward to some of that fellowship you mentioned. -Plinshree

    Welcome, Plinshree. It is indeed unfortunate (to the point of being disastrous)that many churches have taken to using marketing gimmicks instead of doing what Jesus did when He was on earth. He fed the hungry, healed the sick, clothed the naked and people flocked to Him - no gimmicks necessary. That's the stuff the church is supposed to be doing.
