    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.

  1. I am going to soon be deleting my account. I wont be gone forever, but I need to go, until I learn more about my faith. I am so new in my walk with Christ, that I feel that the judgments of others, that are far stronger in their faith, are going to lead me away. And I cannot afford that loss. I am weak, and am easily discouraged and saddened. This is not directed at any one person, as I know that all of you have responded to me with Christ's love, only wanting to help guide me down the right path. I will keep this open for a few more days so that I can say my farewells, and I wish you all the best!

  2. We all go through difficulties and things we don’t understand. It’s easy to get discouraged and think, “Why am I having this problem?” Being a person of faith doesn’t exempt us from difficulties.

  3. Aubrie, I understand what you are saying. There are many different interpretations that you will find on this forum, as not every one is walking on same level of spirituality, and maturity as a Christian.
    You will find that spiritual growth is not as easy as we think it is. As you learn new things by the Spirit of God it will challenge things you thought were true but were not. This will force you to rethink your belief system, and to make changes to fit new revelations. You could call this "growing pains". There are those who will refuse to change their views, and so stay stuck were they are spiritually, and not grow until they do. The good news is once you begin to grow in the Lord and the power of his might your ability to spot error is much easier than before, and your growth in the Lord speeds up greatly.
    It is at a very young age in the Lord that it is easy to be deceived, and get confused in many things. I know that Lord who has "started" a good work in you will bring it to "completion" until the day of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Philippians 1:6)
     
  4. I am not leaving Christ. I am leaving this site, until I feel strong enough to handle being judged by my brothers and sisters in Christ. Right now, I feel like maybe sticking to church and life groups, and learning these hard lessons from people that I personally know and, know they love me, will be what is best for now. A very kind, and caring person from this site today, tried to give me advise. Advise that upset the very core of me. I understand that being with a non-believer is not right. But with us having two children in the home, and loving each other like we do, I do not see how leaving him is going to build my faith at all. For it is in this relationship, and with our children, that has lead me back to Christ. Before I met him and became a mother, I was not on a very good path, in fact, I was agnostic. I just feel like I need to be careful right now, I feel that if I were to stay and take the judgment that Paul stands by, I might be at risk of falling off of the path. I know that I am supposed to be judged by fellow followers and that they will help hold me to the standard of God. I don't want anyone to think that I am angry at them. I am not. I understand. I am just trying to be careful. Does that make sense?
     
  5. Thank you so very much for that. I really truly do appreciate it.
     
  6. Anywhere you go where people are there will be judgment, unfair and wrong in the eyes of God, but you must continue on along your pathway to Him in any case. Do what you believe that you must do. When you decide to return we'll be here brothers and sisters in the Lord. Give God the glory!
     
  7. You should never leave your husband as long as he wants to stay married to his believing wife, and vise-versa is also true. God has called us all to peace not divisiveness.

    1Cor 7:13 And if a Christian woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to continue living with her, she must not leave him.
    1Cor 7:14 For the Christian wife brings holiness to her marriage, and the Christian husband brings holiness to his marriage. Otherwise, your children would not be holy, but now they are holy. (NLT)

    In your Christian walk you will find every body wants to give advise on what you should do, some good, and some not good. This is why we must know the scriptures so we can know the good from the bad. :)

  8. Sister Sloan,a couple of points to consider,notice i did not say demand.Point 1 ( Heb 10:36) If we can endure depends greatly upon being willing to endure. If a brother or sister causes us to feel bad about the subject matter,they only can do this if we allow them to do it! Even if they are looking to bash us! Rather then argue with someone, when you know it is a Matt 7:6 scenario, just address someone else, or go to another topic.

    In here we can witness our growth in how we choose to respond to someone,and they find out just mature we are, as well as others as to the response.( 2Cor 13:5) In this way sister we learn what it means when Paul stated( 1 Cor 9:23-27!!) verse 27! last point. If someone looks to bully you out of this chatsite,then they win, and no one is better then we are sis!! NO ONE! Your value to this chat site is based most of all in how you yourself can apply wisdom from God,having first received his very knowledge.( 1 Cor 1:30-31) For even younger brothers and sisters have great value!!( 1 Tim 4:12) But we have to believe this! Of course,you must do what is best for yourself also!! I just wished to encourage you here in something you may also wish to consider. Blessing!
     
  9. Please re consider and stay
     
  10. To everyone one of you with kind words and thoughts:
    I am not very eloquent, but, I think that what I am referring to here in the goodbye letter, was a GREAT THING. It was something I needed to hear, because I need to TRUST in him and do as he asks me. Someone just needed to reminded me, for me to understand what needed to be done.
    Thank you all. I am not going ANYWHERE, I love it here.

  12. Great to hear.
     
  13. I understand my friend..Many Christian mistakenly think they are supposed to judge others but they too will learn. We have to give each other room to grow. As Curtis said "Everybody is in a different place of growth and learning. Do what you have to do and come back. We'll be looking for you.
