What do you love on Christian Science?
But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good.
-- 1 Thessalonians 5:21

For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
-- Philippians 1:6

The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold

How you want to encourage atheists toward Christianity?

There hasn’t been even one remark made in the thread that I haven’t already heard many many times. None have surprised me or disturbed me.


I'm glad you're back! y:D We need more people with a sense of humor like you!

The good thing about Christian Scientists is that they don't go door-to-door harrassing people like the Witnesses or the Mormons. A few years ago, my brother-in-law was sick & tired of the twice-weekly visits to his place by local Witnesses. He tried telling them politely not to return, it didn't work. He was mean to them, it didn't work. He wrote a letter of complaint to the Kingdom Hall, it didn't work. Finally, he decided on something drastic...

On a nice Sunday morning, two Witnesses came to his door, a woman in her fourties, and a teenaged girl. They rang the bell. When my brother-in-law opened the door, he was stark naked!

The women ran off and no Witnesses have ever bothered him since.

If any of you were to visit a Christian Science Reading Room or the Church of Christ, Scientist near you and mention which religion you are, no one would be trying to convert you or change your view or warn you that you are on the wrong path etc. You would be free to keep your religion without criticism. We would welcome you, and be available if you had a question. We would not say a word against your religion. Our way with a visitor is to assume that they know what they want and to let them be.


How unloving.

Ann, my dear, there is something on my heart
We may seem harsh, but we only wish to guard
Guard the true word of God that is so sacred
word that from time to time may cause hatred

It may kick someone out of his peace
Peace that is false and should cease
It is mere lie, life in the dark
I write this poem hoping for spark

It is not loving to leave someone in error
God's love is what is superior
True love in true Christ
Something many missed.
But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good.

Ann is fine with her name. Leave her alone. Could you change my name? I have come to feel that ''Furstentum Liechtenstein'' is somewhat pompous. I'd like something which better expresses my nature. I am thinking of ''Friendship & Love'' as a new name. With this name, I could keep my ''FL'' signature.

Also, I would like my new avatar to be a teddy bear. Thank you in advance for your help.

Or, may I suggest changing your name to Froot Loop? That way, you can still keep the FL, and the name fits you better.
And, you can go "old school" with your avatar picture:

Actually, I like ''Froot Loop'' as well! ...but I use the term to describe a certain theological bent, so it wouldn't be appropriate to use it as a screen name.

So ''Friendship & Love'' is still my #1 choice. Feel free to make other suggestions.

Your not French? Your last name is too French!
Your last name dates back to the Middle Ages, to the Brittany region in France.

French people are from FRANCE, Einstein.

My dear loving Friend, I am not French because I am not a Citizen of that Fair Land. You are so sweet! I do appreciate your assiduousness in searching out a new Name for me. Thank you so much! And give my regards to your lovely wife.
