Explore Controversial Topics without Creating Controversy

CD_SocialShare_600x600Want to have honest conversations about the things that matter most? Check out ChristianDiscourse.com.

The Internet is full of places to have discussions about anything you can imagine. If you have an opinion about something, there’s a place for you to share it.

But sometimes it’s hard to decide where it’s appropriate to share your thoughts. Discussions related to religion often attract hateful, personal attacks when people can hide behind anonymity. Christian Discourse is creating a healthy environment for Christians to share thoughts, collect opinions, and have conversations about theology, culture, the Bible, and life.

When you want to know what other Christians think, post a question and see what thoughts arise from within the body of Christ. Or, jump into a conversation that’s already taking place. You can even find food for thought as you engage in conversations with your friends and family. Explore controversial topics without creating controversy. Whatever your conversational needs, Christian Discourse is a great place to gather perspectives.

Healthy conversations with real people

Creating Christian community with strangers on the Internet is tough. You are communicating with real people. It’s easy to forget that they’re real when their online ID is fake. Anonymous profiles don’t foster authentic, healthy conversations. That’s why people who post to Christian Discourse create profiles that include their names, and the community can determine if a post is appropriate for a conversation between believers.

Christian Discourse also allows you to interact with others on a more personal level. Say you find someone who’s theology particularly aligns with yours, or, someone who provides exactly the answers you need. If you like the way someone thinks, you can keep learning from them! Click their profile, and see what other discussions they’ve contributed to. Christian Discourse is neatly organized and easy to navigate, so you can journey between conversations in the way that makes the most sense to you.

  2. Is there any record of Lazarus, whom Jesus raise from the dead, dying again?

  3. Do we really want to make prayer in our schools such a political issue. If it was reinstated, it would probably be less than once a week because the government would be required to add prayers from all the other religions in our diverse nation. The basic premise today is that all these religions are equal, but they are not. Jesus Christ is our only savior and the Bible is the only spiritual truth. Christian teaching does not belong in the schools, but in the home.

    Deu 6:5-7 MKJV
    (5) And you shall love Jehovah your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
    (6) And these words which I command you this day shall be in your heart.
    (7) And you shall carefully teach them to your sons, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up.

    We’re not only to teach in words, but even more importantly, by example. Notice verse 7, we are to use every opportunity to teach a Biblical precept. As parents, we cannot shirk our duty to teach our children about God. We cannot be so busy making a living that we fail to make a home.
    Church attendance is very important, but you cannot throw the entire weight of Christian training on the pastor when he sees his congregation only one to three hours per week.
    In the Old Testament, the husband was the family priest, responsible for handing down the Laws of God. In the New Testament, the husband is declared the head of the family. Not the boss, but the one who is to lead the family in religious practices, church attendance, prayer and Bible study. Fathers, your children are more important than that golf game, working overtime to have extra money, or anything else that keeps you from your family. We can accumulate lots of things but lose the most important things in our family.
    Let’s not allow our political prejudices to stand in the way of raising our children to be godly members of the Body of Christ. Let’s make a stand for families. This can’t be legislated or passed on to some other entity, it is our responsibility. Let’s become as passionate for family teaching as many have been in the past about returning Bible reading in schools. Let’s not just talk about it, this something we can do! And, it can be accomplished without political help. The rewards are eternal.

  4. I am a public school teacher in California and I do agree that fighting for prayer in school would be the wrong direction to take. What I believe we need to do is fight for less federal control and more local control. I also think we need to fight for historical truth to be taught. Wallbuilders is a great organization that promotes the truth of the founding fathers and our Christian heritage. We need to stop allowing liberals to change the history of our country because they don't like our Christian heritage.

  5. Ellyn Seelye says:

    Wow, I did not know about this part of Faithlife until my husband tipped me off to it. It is super to have a forum like this for theological questions.

    I agree with the comments on prayer in schools, although it seems there could be a moment of silence during which Christians could pray, and others do what they will. The lingering desire for school prayer is completely understandable in light of the modern bureaucratic state’s determination to stamp out all manifestations of faith in the public square.

    Am wondering if anyone else is struck by the relative silence concerning the fierce persecution of Christians in Iran by ISIS? Not a new phenomenon in the region, certainly, but its renewed ferocity would seem to call for the strongest condemnation by the U.S…

  6. Fighting for prayer in school, falls under the COLOSSIANS 2 man-made rules coaching from Paul.

    It's non-biblical, it's Anti-Christ and Anti Paul in its intent.

    It does NO GOOD, and does MUCH BAD.

    It turns GOD from LOVE to Fascist in a blink of an eye.

    To IMPOSE our faith on others is as Anti-Christ as you can get.
    Paul spoke directly against it.

    It also opposes that God appoints the authorities, and they have ruled on the matter. Why would we challenge God's choice in such a way? That is exactly the same as if Gideon called all the army back to show GOD how to do it correctly.

    Forcing faith upon someone only creates DIVISION and FACTIONS, not unity. Unity must be "grown into", it can't be legislated. Such divisions and factions are of the flesh, so Paul states in Gal 5.

    At some point the Church abandoned it's purpose as God's instruments of RIghteousness, and tried to turn into God's THeocracy. It's going straight to hell for such a choice too. That is evidenced in the shrinking of the church.
