    Intro

    I am creating this post as we have a small community of believers here from all over this world. Some of them maybe new to Christianity and are still seeking for advice or aid. All believers (more so mature ones - not only in age but wisdom) are invited to add to this list that I am seeking to complie.

    Thread Guidelines

    If you wish to add to this please number your points and place an appropriate scripture verse(s) at the end of your point. If you do have a point that does not have a scripture verse it should, by all means, point the new Chrisitian back to the bible.

    HelpFul Advice

    1. Find a Church that has bible study and prayer meeting (2 Timothy 2:15 & 1 Timothy 2:1 - 2:4)
    2. While your exicted to go preach, sing and teach the word of Christ it is VERY important to humble yourself and learn the foundational teaching of the Bible. An ignorant christian is a dangerous and dead christian (Book of Proverbs, Hosea 4:6)
    3. Have Christian friends. Period. Your walk with Christ will be much harder if you dont have at least one Chrisitan friend or even mature believer you can talk to and be comfortable with (Proverbs 27:17)
    4. Know Church History. You will be surprised to know the amount of believers that do not know who Martin Luther is (really%-/). Why should we at least know? Some of the things we do and doctrines/teaching in churhces today stem from them and they having an understanding of the bible created those things (they not Christ and all we do to them is acknowledge what they have done).Knowing some Church history, even knowing the history of your own church assembly and Sect will help you make important  descions that pertain to spirit and the things of men (know your bible and teachings laid within).

    So, if you all have anything positive to add please follow the format and lets continue to share and help each other.

    Tell Others About Jesus

    Scripture: “And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All

    authority in heaven and on earth has been given to

    me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations,

    baptizing them in the name of the Father and of

    the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to

    observe all that I have commanded you. And behold,

    I am with you always, to the end of the age.’” -

    Matthew 28:18-20

    Who is one person you could share Jesus with today?

    One of Jesus’ greatest commands is to tell others

    about Him. It can be scary to share about Jesus with

    others, whether it’s with a stranger or a close friend.

    But, don’t let fear keep you from telling someone

    about Jesus today. The reward is far greater than

    anything bad that might happen - that person's

    salvation!. If you want to know how you can share

    Jesus today, one easy way is to click the share

    Thanks for the reply though wanted some structure in this thread so it would be easy to read. Your post should be laid out like this -

    1. Tell others about Christ.  Who is one person you could share Jesus with today?

    NOTE: If you are a fairly new believer in Christ all you are told to do (yes its a commandment from Christ which can be found in scripture) is to tell those who are no saved about Christ. You dont do the conversion or persuation. Thats it, you just tell them.
