    Hey there everyone, welcome to the Christian Alliance! As if the title didn't make it obvious enough already, this club is for any member of the Christian belief. Doesn't matter if you're Catholic, Protestant, or some other group that follows Christ--if Jesus is your hero, this is where you belong. If you wanna join just post saying that you want in and you'll be an official member! =D

    For those interested in Christianity: look below for information about salvation.

    RULES

    - All SPPf rules apply here. That means no bashing, no spamming, no sneaking around the censors, etc.

    - Do not harass the atheist or muslim alliances (either by pm or through posting). Although we do not agree with their beliefs, planning against them or anything like that will not be tolerated. If you absolutely must tell them that they're wrong, go to the debate forum and argue it out there.

    - Non-members are encouraged to ask any questions they have, concerning Christianity. If you want a more thorough answer on a topic, visit www.gotquestions.org. That site is run by more educated Christians and will probably answer your question better than we can. In the event you only post to pick at our beliefs or whine and carry on, you will be reported. The Christian alliance is a place where we are allowed to speak of our religion without people telling us it's wrong. If you see something you don't agree with, too bad. This isn't the debate forum people, so please go there if all you want to do is argue.

    Edit: For an indefinite period of time, nonmembers are not allowed to post here. Lately tensions have been high, due to posts from nonmembers so we are restricting this privilege until things settle down. Please respect this request. (Non-members asking for membership are allowed to post.)

    - Due to the mass amount of wars caused by the subject of homosexuality, we have created a rule concerning the matter. WE DO NOT HATE HOMOSEXUALS. Hate the sin and love the sinner, this is the idea we support. Because the Bible does cite homosexuality as a sin though, we will not approve of such behavior just as we would not support people stealing, lying, cheating, etc. Homosexual Christians are still allowed to join by all means, but please do not get upset when someone tells you it's wrong. Again guys, this is not the debate forum. If you want to argue over the matter, please look there. Since we believe the Bible is the word of God though, we obviously have a straight forward answer to "is this wrong?" and there's no point in even debating about it in the first place.

    The Gospel:
    All humans know the difference between good and evil. We know how wrong it is to lie, cheat, steal, envy and whatnot...but we still do it. We do it because it's easy and makes us "happy". Regardless of how happy it makes us feel though, sin is sin. It is evil and disgusting. When evil is committed, it needs to be punished...and our punishment is death, our punishment is hell.

    Because of the Lord's immense love for us though, He has given us a way to be saved. He has died in our place. Even though God does not sin at all, He took our sin upon Him (as if He was the one who committed it) and received the punishment that went along with it. He took our sin so that we would be made holy. So that we could ascend into heaven.

    So why can't we save ourselves? Why can't we erase our sin? Can you go back in time? Of course not. Once you sin, it's done. The Lord will not let us be tempted beyond what we can stand, so no human has an excuse to sin. Everytime you commit evil, you had a way to resist it. There is no one to blame but yourself. Since we cannot undo our sin (and therefore someone has to be punished for that evil), the only answer is for us to die...or for someone to take our place. Evil must be punished or otherwise there's no justice, but God is just so someone had to die. And He died for you.

    Just like a lawyer though...God's exchange does not apply to everyone. If you went to court and someone offered "here, I will take your place" that's fine and dandy, but...if you don't accept it? Well obviously it's no use to you. In order for them to take your place, you must accept them. Same with God. God died on the cross to forgive our sins, He was sinless and spotless, but made Himself sin for you and me...but if you don't accept His help, you still carry your sin. And then you will have to take the punishment.

    "I have stored up You Word in my heart, that I might not sin against You." -Psalm 119:11 (ESV)

    "Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us."-Romans 5:1-5 (ESV)

    I've always wanted to join the Christian Alliance. I'm trying to visit the Clubs forum more often again, and joining here would not only help me do that but hopefully become more...open about my love for Christ as well. It's something I really need to work on, and I know being here would help me with that a lot.

    I'm Protestant (Lutheran), and I've been going to church since I was three-years-old. Going to church isn't exactly a big thing around where I live, so it's always been awkward for me to talk about with anyone but my family and other people from my church. So...yeah. I kinda just keep to myself, which is something I'm not so proud about doing. Like I said, I really want to be more open about my love for Christ. It's going to be a new goal for me.

    Hope I can join. :] I haven't been to church in a while (we're having a lot of family problems at the moment, and it's been really hard to make it...which I feel really bad about - I pray everyday at home, but it's really not enough), and I really need a place that's at least sort of like church. XD; Thanks for listening to me, if anything.

    I want to join~!!! I love Jesus and stuff~!!! I'm a Christian and I've been going to church since I was six. I think it'll be cool being here since I don't get to talk about Jesus all that much since whenever I talk to my Christian friends we end up talking about Bleach, or school, or video games >>; So yah, add me to the list! 8D

    Yay, I'll finally have a post on the first page. :p

    Have any of you heard about the controversy with Hillsong Australia's latest album "This Is Our God"?

    Basically, a guy who wrote the song "Healer", which is about God being a healer, was walking around being sick and stuff, and then got "healed". But then it turned out he was faking. So they had to do a recall of all original releases of the album and DVD (which had his testimony) and remove it.

    Shame, it's a powerful song. We still use it at Church. :p

    Woot! This is my first post in the new alliance!!!

    Never heard of that song, Kal-El. Can you post some lyrics?

    Well, I'm going through even more rough times. My physics grade is dropping like a brick...and I'm trying to get number 1 in the class again this year...Somedays, I wish I wouldn't have to get out of bed. I'm always in a panic after a test (like today) and until I get my results, I can't stop thinking about the test. My faith has been tested through this. I'm starting to wonder if God is telling me I need to focus on something else other than getting top average. Then again, I've gotten it for the past five years, and valedictorian is coming up next year...so...I don't know what to think. I'm just mentally, emotionally, and physically tired.

    I'd like to rejoin, please...

    Also, any of you who read the last thread know that I have a prayer request or two, so yeah. It's kinda rough right now, but I do also have a praise. For any of you who know anything about Band, I had Chair Auditions a week ago, after having prayed fervently about it, and yesterday found out that I got second chair, playing the first (and highest) part. My director said it was cause I was not only good, especially for a freshman, but also because I was ambitious. So yeah, now I actually have a shot at some solos, which I play in class anyway. Happy really doesn't cover it. Nervous might, though. XD

    Dawgs, you don't need to re-join....>.> We only transferred to a different thread...>.>

    I like the lyrics.

    Gah. We need a new topic. I'll see what I can do....>.>

    Anyone have a verse that they would like to discuss? Or a passage of scripture?

    Pachirisu &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;- He want da cookie

    Well guys, I have a praise report. Ok, in the other club, I made a post asking people to PM because I needed to talk to some one. Just to get some things off of my chest. Well, just about a week ago, I was in a very bad car accident. A car ran a red light, and hit my friends car. (on the passengers side) I can't explain to you, how it happened, but ever since then, I have been paralyzed from the waist down. The doctor said I was lucky to be alive, but I would never be able to walk again. It was shocking to hear that for me. I just can't explain what I felt when I was told that. At first I was almost angry at God. But I realized, that God let this happen for a purpose. I repented, and went on with my life. Just yesterday, I stayed up all night, just praying and talking to God, until I just passed out from exhaustion. In the morning, I got a phone call from some man. And the only thing I heard was "Get up, and walk!" I didn't know what to think of it. I heard the voice again and it said the same thing. I don't even know what came over me, but I only closed my eyes for just a second, and when I opened my eyes, I was standing! I started to walk and run and I just got on my knees and just thanked God over and over again. I couldn't believe what had happened. One moment I was sitting in a wheel chair and unable to walk, and the next I was running! I went to see my doctor, and he said that I was perfectly healed! I called everyone I knew and told them about it. I can't thank God enough for what he did! I am going to give my testimony at my church on Sunday, but I will always be in debt to God. I can walk again and I can run again, and I owe it all to God.

    But I also just want to thank everyone who prayed for me, and I want them to know, that they helped more than they know.

    Wow, Parichisu, that is amazing. And Pikawho, you should probably update taht member list, since some of those people may not be on Serebii anymore.

    Ah, another Georgian. Why is it that we have to state that we live in the American Georgia? Wait...yeah, it gets confusing. Especially when Russia invaded the country of Georgia and people in our county were like, we're being invaded by Russia?! XD

    As for your band praise, congratulations. Our school is too small for a band, but I play the only instrument for literary competition (piano) and I'm the only player in our high school, so I have to compete each spring. I can understand how it feels to be nervous playing solo and such, but keep it up! God's given you a talent and you must use it to glorify him, and to do that, you must work hard at your playing.

    That's amazing. A boy in my class had an accident on a four-wheeler nearly three years ago and was paralyzed from the waist down. We know he will never walk again and he is still in a wheelchair. Sometimes, people ask why God won't make him better, but I say that this is God's plan. It was also God's plan to grant you the ability to walk. I say you are very lucky. A week before the boy's accident, a girl in our class was killed in a four-wheeler accident, which hurt our class very much. But...I believe that was God's plan as well, because it brought our class closer together. We're a tight knit group now. :) I'm so glad you are okay.

    Thanks, Pikawho! :)

    I dunno, that's pretty ridiculous to recall all the albums and DVDs. If people still enjoy the song, that should be no reason to remove it. Did he write it based on his healing, or...? I guess that's the part I'm confused on. If so, then I can see why. I can see removing the testimony, but not the song.

    Eek, Physics. :x I don't know how stressful it is myself but I do have friends in it who are worried about it just as much as you. I freak out about tests and grades and everything, too, so I at least know what that's like. Honestly, though, I think you should give yourself a little break. It's great that you want to do so well but when it's harming you emotionally and physically...that's not good at all. The more you tire yourself out the less likely it is you'll finish out well, because you're so drained. I'm pretty sure God is trying to tell you to calm down, like you said. Who knows what He has store, but I'm sure whatever it is, it will be good for you. I'll keep you in my prayers, though. :] Good luck!

    Aww, I hope things get better for you. :[ I'll definitely keep you in my prayers. Congrats, too!! That's a huge accomplishment, especially for a freshman.

    Pachirisu, wow. That's...amazing. I've heard miracle stories before, but none of them come close to yours. I'm really glad you're alright... I couldn't imagine having to live paralyzed like that. God must having something else in store for you. :0

    Sure, definitely. I'll pray for your family, too, since I know that [a family member dying] is one of the hardest things to go through.

    Yes, we do believe in what you call the "bible crap." :rolleyes: If you have any questions about Christianity and our beliefs, you should ask them maturely, but if you have nothing nice to say to us besides that, you should not be posting here. This is a place for Christians to talk with each other without being bashed by other members, though you obviously did not read the first page.

    Yes we do believe the 'Crap' and we have reason to believe, how could Jesus' birth be foretold thousands of years before he was born? How could Jesus' body just be gone, and we have that on record that the body was gone.

    I'm thinking we need a topic

    Who's your favorite Christan Singer?

    Duke Walker. He leads my youth group's band. ;P I really don't have a favorite singer, though....

    As for trying out for the band, good luck. I tried getting on as a keyboardist but I got owned by my friend who is alot better at that kind of playing(I still own him in sight-reading and classical piano, though). But yeah, good luck.

    That's amazing, Pachirisu. That'll make a great testimony. I agree with Chelc, that surpasses most of the stories I've heard. Just proves that God will bless those who trust in Him during the worst of times.

    I'll be praying for the requests that have been put up. Also, could you guys be praying for me? I have to take the SAT December 6th. That should pretty much make obvious what I want prayer for. Just pray that God will help me to not get stressed and to trust in Him. Thanks. And if any of you have already taken the test, send me any tips that you have. Much help is wanted. lol

    Anyways, tonight I have to sing in a talent show my church is holding to raise money. I still don't know what to sing lol. I didn't want to enter in the first place, but my friends made me do it. The winner get's a 250$ prize though. The talent show isn't just for the church memebers only though. Anyone could enter if they wanted to. But i'm really nervous about it. But again, I want to thank everyone who prayed for me when I needed it.

    Well, I gotta go now. Wish me luck!

    Awesome, I'm happy that this club was re-maid. I'm not so open to my love for Christ, I usually only say if people ask me, but I still love him more than anything or anyone. I will pray for anyone that asks, so Pokelover, your Grandfather is in my prayers. And yeah, I would like to rejoin, please. Good luck Pachirisu! And that miracle that happened is fantastic! I'm really happy for you!

    I don't have a favorite Christian singer because I don't know any, I only like a few singers anyway.

    Yes, I am rejoining this club.

    Who's your favorite Christian singer?

    I don't really have a favorite Christian singer. But I do have a few Christian CDs (ones by The Swift and David Crowder Band). My area also happens to have a Christian music radio station.

    May I join?

    I'm a Christian. I was taught that Jesus is the real God and I think that all of the other religions {not to put any other religions down ;)} don't really make much sense.
    I really dislike Athiest (or however you spell it) because I just can't imagine the world just being there without having someone create it. :)

    Yeah, I beleive in that crap!
    Got a problem with that? ;]

    I'm taking it that day, too. I've already taken the SAT once, back in October. Visit the collegeboard site for some good practice. It helps a lot.
