If you are apposed to Christian principles and ideals, you might want to visit another thread. The reason I started this spot is to hear how Christians are using their faith to stop drinking using the MWO program and to help and encourage each other as well as others who might be interested in our help. Let's start sharing. Eliziby

Sorry Eliziby,
I wasn't aware that this is an exclusive Christian space. I am a Christian but have many questions, beliefs and opinions so I'll stay away from this thread. It's good that you started this subject.
Peace,
CB

Brandy, a couple of search engions where you can maybe find what you are looking for is www.crosssearch.com (http://www.crosssearch.com) and www.christsites.com (http://www.christsites.com). I found these with an aol search for "Christian Websites". You might try that for more choices of places to look. Eliziby

Eliziby and Brandy, I am not a Christian but good for you. If anyone gives you a hard time, remind them that they don't have to read this particular thread.

Enjoy.....Nancy

This has been encouraging. I was beginning to wonder if this site was going to work. Thanks for your response. Lets keep it going. If you are like me, you like telling others when something good is happening to you because of your faith. This is the place to do it. I know that's why I found My Way Out and that's why it is working for me. I can be overwhelmed if I look at the big picture of my drinking problem, but I know I can do it with my new motto and prayer "One Day at a Time Sweet Jesus". You may think I am a bit silly, but I have larned to pray about little things, no matter how simple. Today, I lost my reading glasses. I looked every where I could think of. I was getting so frustrated. In desperation, I used my husbands glasses to read the mail. I continued to look without success. I gave up and went about my daily task and didn't think about them any more until I decided it was time I needed to check the MWO web site, so I started looking all over again. I thought, "This is crazy, God knows right where they are and could lead me right to them if He will." So I prayed and ask Him to take me to them. After praying I turned around and laying on the arm of the sofa behind me were my glasses. They were the same dark color as the color of the sofa and blended right in with it making it hard for me to see them. God wants us to pray about all things no matter how small. Eliziby

Amen!!!!! I lost my glasses Saturday. After walking all around my house and yard, I came back in and they were on the side of my bath tub where I left them! I think Jesus just wanted me to walk around outside with Him and talk to Him and look at His wonders in nature!
Silly? Never!

Is it Christian to SHUN someone? The definition I see in the dictionary says:

deliberately avoid somebody: to avoid somebody or something intentionally

So, because I don't live in the south, am I being shunned in this string of notes? Is that the right thing to do?

I was brought up to treat everyone with respect and honour. It is NOT Christian to treat someone with disrespect. But maybe the southern U.S. Christians find that treatment is OK. I do not.

For me, to LOVE is Christian. To ACCEPT is Christian. To FORGIVE is Christian.

Maybe we should discuss our Christian beliefs?????

CB!

I'm sorry .........I don't know where any of these people live and it doesn't matter to me.

What do you believe?

Do you really want to become mormon?

Everyone is welcome here.........
:D

Hi,
Thanks, Southernbelle. I was trying to make a point that I had made some ignored comments in this thread.
Oh well, I guess we are all different. I was brought up as a Catholic and it was very strict. In my journey through life I have discovered compassion.

The Essence of Compassion
Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant with the weak and wrong because sometime in your life you will have been all of these.

I agree with that!
I had some very good friends growing up who were catholic.
I don't think we ever talked about religion.That was a long time ago.
What do you believe now? About God ?

Guest

CB, I too am so, so sorry if you felt we were shunning you. I honestly wasn't aware that you wanted a response to your post. I just thought you were sharing your thoughts with us as we were sharing our thoughts with everone else out there who might be interested. I loved hearing from you and every one that posted. God bless you and please keep coming back and share with us. Eliziby

The reason I started the Christian Corner in the first place, was because many of us were beginning to sound a little too Christian for the "What We Believe" thread and there were a lot of faiths other than Christian using it and some were not too comfortable with it. I hope we will all keep coming back to this board and posting our thoughts and encourging one another. Another thing we might consider for this site. Let's not make a descision now, and we may want to have a trial period for it. How about the Christian Corner being a place that we can also make our prayer request known for each other , and sharing our answered prayer? We all come from so many different backgrounds and this may be carrying the sharing of our faith a little too far, so Let's think about it? I don't want to start something that we will regret. I will tell you this. I have already been you, as well as for myself. None of us would be here if we didn't need His help. Eliziby

Thank you so much for your answers. I was being a bit sensitive.
I just met with a "newbie" Catholic friend. She is such a sweetie pie and I can't help thinking about the "Priest" scandals in the papers. She strengthened my Catholic ideas by reminding me that this religion has not changed one bit from the very beginning, for millenia this religion has not wavered. It is exactly the same from the beginning, so I can not lose faith because another member of this faith has made a mistake.
Now, what I plan to do is find out how I can take a course in "Religious Studies", then I will be really confused!! :lol
Seriously, I am interested in everything that's out there and I guess I should use other than the "Christian Corner" for my thoughts.
GOD BLESS YOU great people!

I think that is a good idea. I need all the help I can find!
Today has been a yuck day for me. Really down. My daughter and two grandsons came down yesterday and we cooked out. We had fun but when they left I got really sad. I had several glasses of wine and have felt sick all day today. Maybe James does have something in the cds to make you sick if you do over indulge.:rolleyes
Thank you for your prayers. I will do the same for all of you.

Blessings,
Nancy

CB,
Just be sure to share back with us what you learn........
I bought a book on Catechism of the Catholic Church a few months ago. I've been a Baptist all my life but since summer of 2003 when my son was in Iraq, I started seeking "more".... My personal relationship with God through Jesus and the Holy Spirit has become very real. My Father God has shown His amazing love for me in very awsome ways. I pray for your spiritual eyes and ears be open to what you are looking for.
My prayer for today:
Father,
HELP, HELP, HELP....
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Amen

Hi southern..
I assumed you are Baptist because of your location. Up here in the north, we are everything, however someone once told me I should go to the Baptist Church because I am emotional. I went out with a dear friend last week and she suggested that I learn more about Catholicisim, and offered me a course that she took, but I think I want to study (all) Religious Studies because I truly feel we are all connected in the same (Godly) way but the way we use our words are different. Also, the man that I think I love is a Mormon and I don't understand his beliefs but he is VERY strong in everything AND the guy doesn't drink so I never, ever drink when I'm with him and it is easy. What a great way to quit huh?
Thank you so much for your words. You have no idea how much I appreciate that you are talking to me here because even though we all have this common drinking problem, I believe that we also have a confusion about who is really the higher power of all of us, and I need to look in this direction to find my way out and to be able to talk about my confusion in this area.

CB,
Even though I'm from "the bible belt" I try to have an open mind....not so open that my brain falls out, but open to loving people no matter how different they are from me. I think God made us all different and He speaks and relates differently with all. I don't think we can put Him in a denomination box! I think He would be bored to death if we were all the same...as would we!!
I do know that He wants us to have joy in our life on this earth and peace. I do know that there are forces that would like to keep us from finding that..... there is a battle going on for our very soul.
John 16: 9-17

Blessings and Grace in your search for Truth,
