Re: Sheffield Churches: The harsh cliquey reality!

In the Church of England, some ministers seem to be more interested in wielding authority than in serving God or their congregation. Instead of spreading the Gospel and offering support, they are consumed by the power their position grants them. This attitude drives people away from the church rathe...

Re: Mesopotamian myths: The Epic of Gilgamesh & its Flood Story inspired Noah's Ark?

I totally get where you're coming from. It's frustrating when people try to undermine our beliefs with these so-called "historical" claims. Oral traditions were a huge part of ancient cultures, and just because something was written down first doesn't mean it's the original story. Oral tra...

Why Christians should vote Reform Uk!

As we stand on the precipice of a new election, we find ourselves in a battle for the very soul of our nation. It is a battle that demands our courage, our voice, and most importantly, our vote. The time has come to take a stand against the decline orchestrated by the corrupt Tory and Labour governm...

Solution: Be the Change!

To those who feel lonely, downtrodden, and ignored at church, I want to reassure you: you're not alone. God is with you, even in your darkest moments, and He sees your pain. He spoke of these trials in Revelations, reminding us that we are not forgotten. Our churches are meant to be sanctuaries of l...

Re: Sheffield Churches: The harsh cliquey reality!

I met a woman at church who seemed genuinely interested in me. We had what I thought was a real connection, only for her to drop me like a hat once she got bored. She now blatantly ignores me, having moved on to flirt with other guys. This isn't the first time this has happened to me, and it seems t...

Re: Sheffield Churches: The harsh cliquey reality!

Church is meant to be a place meant to uplift and nurture our souls, and yet, too often, we see the very antithesis of Christ’s teachings: cliques. Yes, those harmful, exclusive groups that tear our church apart and drive people away. This behavior is not just wrong; it is downright un-Christian. We...

Re: Sheffield Churches: The harsh cliquey reality!

Churches in Sheffield (especially in Fulwood) are resembling chimpanzee pens rather than places of worship! Certain men, seeking companionship or perhaps driven by desperation, have turned our sacred spaces into hunting grounds. Instead of focusing on the Word of God and the gifts of the Spirit, th...

Re: Sheffield Churches: The harsh cliquey reality!

If you find yourself visiting a church in Sheffield and are experiencing feelings of loneliness and isolation, please know that this is not what God wants church to be like. The Bible is full to the brim of examples of God's profound love for all His creation, His call for us to love one another, an...

Sheffield Churches: The harsh cliquey reality!

Hello, fellow believers, I come to you today with a heavy heart, burdened by a harsh reality that we, as a community of believers, cannot any longer afford to ignore. I'm talking about the current state of our churches in Sheffield, where I, along with many others, have experienced something that fe...

The "Christian" Women at Church: Are they really Christian?

Alright chaps, I'm a 30-year old single guy and I can't help but feel that the majority of women in my age group at our Church aren't Christian at all. 😕 They don't exhibit the fruit of the Spirit, which should be the hallmark of a true believer. Too many times, I've been ignored, even openly sneere...

Conscription... Yay or Nay?

Hey folks, word on the street has it that our army chiefs are stirring the pot, hinting at a possible conflict with Russia in the not-so-distant future. They're suggesting conscriptions might be necessary for our defense. But, interestingly enough, a recent poll reveals that 9 out of 10 Brits would ...

Are Levi jeans overrated? That's the Question! 😕

Hey there, friends and fellow fashion enthusiasts! 👋 Recently, I found myself with a burning hole in my wallet after the much-hyped sale at John Lewis. I treated myself to a couple of pairs of navy, slim-fit jeans - one pair from Levi's and another from Lee. Now, I'm not one to judge a book by its c...

Well now, friends, have you seen that latest video, "So God created Donald Trump"? My, oh my. This video is a twist on a beloved verse from our N.I.V Bible, John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but hav...

Re: What is the deal with snooty Church cliques?!

Thanks for your reply.

What is the deal with snooty Church cliques?!

What the deal with snooty Church cliques?! I mean, seriously, I've almost lost count of the amount of times I have been shunned at church. Aren't we all supposed to be there to love and support each other? I guess not, because apparently if you ain't rich and successful, you ain't worth their time. ...
