I am a Christian in a wheelchair that loves Jesus and likes church. I am a happy down-to-earth person who would like to meet others who like talking about Jesus and doing things he approves. You ask: Why are you a Christian? We all know that we did not create ourselves & we will die one day, so we might as well get ready to meet God, the Creator. Yes, it takes some work to make changes but heaven is a far better place than earth & is worth it. Plus, God forgives us weak human beings of our sins as we struggle to draw closer to him (1Jn 1:9). So, I have the JOY of God's love & forgiveness (Jn 3:16), the hope of eternal life rather than the athiest's gloom of the grave/casket (1Co 15:54-58), the PEACE of knowing that I have a far better life coming in heaven than I could ever have on earth (Heb 11:13-16), & the joy of serving him NOW on earth knowing all these things. Praise God indeed. Thank you Lord.
I am Christian, happy, and dedicated. I am looking for friendships. I am also interested in dating/wife--this may be difficult. Why? First she must be a Christian who likes talking about her Bible. Two, she must "enjoy" orgasms--in my days of sin, I met several that complained of sensitivity or just were not into it. In James Dobson book on relationships, he said that 25% of women do not like sex. Some women find sex physically painful. Also, LOVE is not selfish (1Co13), so sex is not supposed to be selfish [wham/bam/thank you mam or "ME, MYSELF, & I"] nor should it be done in fornication/adultery. Therefore, I want my wife to enjoy sex, not just me. Obviously, from my last two comments, I am an open and honest person who believes adults should be mature (not perfect) and seek good things not only for themselve but for others as well. I believe heaven is a good place & we should be mature enough to accept that we will die one day & must get ready to meet God, face to face. It is hard to find Christians who are willing to be this and meet requirement #2. So mostly, I am concentrating on friendships in Christ.
To the atheists/agnostics: I do not rule you out as a possible mate/friend but do you believe that a computer popped out of 2 rocks colliding (big bang theory)? Computers required intelligent DESIGN so it is obvious that more sophisticated DNA (which intelligent scientists still don't understand) was created by a wise & caring God (Gen 1:1). Also, the sun never burns up, unlike our energy supplies, paper or anything we use. The sun is a miracle & sign from God of his existence, power, & love for us by giving us sunshine, food, & water to survive (Mt 5:45 ;Act 14:27). There is a God & only one God (with all that power!) & he is good. You may ask: If God is good & all powerful, why does he allow problems to exist in the world? The answer is simple. God is our Father & creator. Do we want a robot as a child? No, because it would mean nothing when a robot said. "I love you". God created us with free-will or the ability to choose rather than as robots that perfectly obey so that when we say "I love you God", it comes from a caring & willing heart rather than some lifeless computer chip. God gives us this peace & freedom from fear (Rom 8:15). However, with free-will also comes the ability to do wrong or "sin" (things that God does not want us to do). Adam & Eve were the 1st people on earth who sinned & corrupted the earth--so we have earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, droughts, pain in childbearing, and other natural disasters as a result of their sin (Gen 3:16-19). However, we have all sinned as foolish people (Rom 3:23) so we all share in the responsibility of the problems of the world--(not God). This is why I am so thankful for God's mercy & Jesus Christ dying for my sins & being resurrected to give me hope for a home in heaven, which is a far better place than earth (Heb 11:13-16). God had a plan when he created the universe & us & sent his Son to die for us.
NOTE: I'VE RECEIVED SOME NEGATIVE RESPONSES FROM CHRISTIANS ABOUT THE WORD "ORGASM" [they seem to think that it is a SIN to say "sex" or "orgasm", words which are professional medical terminology which allow us to communicate without being nasty or pornographic--READ ROM 1:22-28]. I ALSO SAW ON TV ON 2-2-2011 THAT A WIFE STOPPED SEX AFTER GETTING MARRIED! THIS IS A REAL PROBLEM & SIN (1CO 7:5)--SEX IS NOT "DIRTY" & it is not sin to enjoy this pleasure of the flesh (HEB 13:4) [as some religions & people think] BUT IT IS WISER TO WAIT FOR MARRIAGE. I'M THANKFUL FOR THE NEWS INFORMING US & AM TRYING TO DO MY PART AS A GOOD CITIZEN & BORN-AGAIN CHRISTIAN.
