This was my message on podcast at Midwest Family Camp last summer.  It’s entitled, “I Believe, therefore I Speak.”  (or maybe a better title would have been “How NOT to be a Chicken when Sharing Your Faith”) 🙂

I would like to encourage anyone interested in enjoying some fellowship with other believers of the faith, to join us in Indiana this summer, June 20th – 25th for “Midwest Family Camp.”  It will encourage you and deepen your faith in the one true God, His only begotten Son Jesus, (our Lord Messiah and soon coming King!); and make you look forward with great hope and anticipation to the day of Christ’s return and His coming Kingdom!

    This might be a bit off topic but from what I understand the RC/Anglican/Lutheran doctrine states that Christ is present in one form or another in the Communion and that to experience this you must be physically present at the Communion (in the church).

    I believe that we can experience Christ remotely over great distances via the internet. Jesus said that when one or more of you gather in my name I will be there among you (guiding you). I’m just wondering if anyone else believes we can experience Christ over great distances via the internet as well…

    Correction to above message – When two or more of you gather in my name…

    Thomas ~ I believe we can experience Christ and awesome fellowship via the internet and I don’t know what I would do without that sort of support and encouragement from other like-minded believers/followers of Jesus Christ. But, at the same time, there is something so special about being together, face-to-face with our brothers and sisters in Christ. We are designed to crave that, and we were not meant to be alone and isolated. God has designed us to want that personal, physical (really being in the same room) fellowship with other believers, so that (in my opinion) we will share our faith and plant seeds, to see new believers sprout up! Then, the Body of Christ grows. That need to be with other believers, causes us to be obedient to Jesus’ great commission of sharing the gospel and making disciples in his name.

    My husband, Tony, and I, are a part of a small fellowship in Indiana and enjoy Bible study and fun times with them, but whenever we have the chance, such as the Theological Conference that we just attended in Atlanta, Georgia, or the Family Camp, I mentioned above, we go! We are still glowing from the time spent in Atlanta, and still are encouraged by such awesome fellowship there.

    But, to answer your question — yes, I think Christ is working via the internet, and our faith in the one true God is about to explode! It’s a revolution for the truth, and the internet and the friendships that are being built over it, and the availability of the knowledge and truth via the net, has unleashed the time for Biblical truth.

    I had an interesting experience today. I had found out about a local church called the `Unitarian Fellowship of Niagara` and all week was looking forward to finally meeting another Unitarian (in person that is). The service was a little odd and they seemed more interested in social activism then religion.

    At the end of the service I stayed for coffee and this man came up to me and introduced himself as the President of the church and welcomed me as a newcomer. With-in a few minutes he had told me he was a retired scientist (biologist) and that he was a staunch atheist.

    Being an ex-atheist myself I had a well thought out answer to every one of his objections that God could not possibly exist. After about a half an hour he was visibly irritated and suddenly stated he had to go. The last thing I thought would happen on my first visit to a Unitarian Church was that I would be debating the existence of God with the President of the church.

    Needless to say I don`t think I`m going to go back…

    Sounds like it was a Unitarian Universalist church. They are big on accepting virtually any beliefs. This is why we use the term “Biblical Unitarian” to distinguish ourselves from the Unitarian Universalists.

    Mark is right, there are many groups like these and they are very numerous on the net.
    Your not going to find very many that match your beliefs 100% right now but knowledge is being increased as we speak. You are going to have to fellowship in certain areas with some, but you can find fellowship for all your beliefs within several groups.
    Most Unitarian groups are still held by tradition on other subjects but feel just because they have uncovered a few truths they are the only ones entering the narrow gate but are just trying to take it by force. Everyone of these groups has something profitable within that certain subject but on other subjects are costly. So pick your subjects to who they match.theres not many sites or groups like here .

    You said, “There is not many sites or groups like here.”

    I agree. I am so lucky to have found this site. Before I came here last Christmas I had never blogged in my life. I have very little experience with computers and am not very good at searching for things on the internet. This demonstrates to me that God must have guided me to email with Anthony Buzzard who in turn recommended Sean’s site here to me.

    I have read a bit about Universal Unitarianism and understood that they were composed of Muslims, Jews and Christians etc… but what they had in common was a monotheist belief in one God. That’s why I was totally taken off guard to find that the President of this church was a staunch atheist. I don’t see how an atheist could be Unitarian??

    But I guess it’s like Mark C. said, “They are big on accepting virtually any beliefs.”

    Mathew 6:27-29,
    “And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? CONSIDER THE LILIES OF THE FIELD, HOW THEY GROW: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.”

    It is such a beautiful day and I was just observing how marvelous God’s creation was and it got me to thinking about what Jesus told us we should do, “Consider the lilies of the field and how they grow.”

    I think it is good for us to take time out of our busy lives to observe the lilies of the field and the rest of God’s creation and just to marvel at how wonderful, beautiful and good God’s creation really is…
