    New Community Design

    Thinking about doing a refresh design for Talk Jesus community here, possibly using a different software platform as well to replace the current. It'll still remain a "forum" software nonetheless. Please vote at this poll and share your feedback.

    Facing Our Loneliness

    Everyone has lonely moments in life, but when loneliness begins to define our lives, it causes serious problems. We compromise our principles to try to fill the emotional emptiness. We choose behavior that harms our health, relationships, and finances. The consequences can be devastating. Learn how God desires to fulfill every longing you have for meaningful connection.

Discussion in 'Introduction' started by Plinshree, Jul 30, 2011.

  1. 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.

  3. 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 !
  4. 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.
