Jaide Beck

Christian / messianic Looking for other Christians/ messianic. :D

Recommended Posts

Hi my name is Jaide Beck in sl. I have been in sl since May 2007. I am looking for serious christians/messianics, who are very serious about there faith in Jesus/ Yeshua. I want to find some friends because I am alone a lot in sl and i want to read the Bible together and discuss, but we could also parachute, shop, play games, etc. i just wanted to find some like minded friends. :)  Of course I'd be friends with anyone as long as they are respectable. :) I've been in the Lord for over 25 yrs, not to say I know everything cause I'm far from it. 😛 I just want to fill my sl with friends and not be lonely anymore. :) We could just sit and talk, we don't have to shop, I just want friendly people to spend my time with when I'm on sl, though sometimes I tend to be a loner, which I suppose could be my downfall in some ways. :() I hope you will let me know. :) Maybe we could talk a bit before becoming friends. :) So we can decide if we like being around each other. :) Thanks for reading. :D Jaide Beck Shalom! :)

Oh really? I just really want friends who are serious christians/messianics and who are fun and friiendly, but are very serious in Jesus/ Yeshua. I do like to have fun, but I want Jesus to come first, it is hard to find other believers who really enjoy fellowship in Jesus, talking about him and stuff. :) Praying together, worshipping together, sharing, etc. I have been in diff Bible studies, churches, nobody wants to be friends outside of it, so it seems. :))

Hi Jaide! I would be very interested in talking to you! I am also a Christian, and while I've been blessed to have found a couple other Christians in world with whom I am friends, I agree that it's hard to meet like-minded Christians who are open to friendship. Feel free to message me in world and lets chat. Or, send me a IM through here. Look forward to talking to you!

I think one huge difficulty with Christian fellowship within SL is the great diversity of Christian expressions of faith. When you take the relatively small percentage of people in SL who are open here about thier faith, that group gets further divided into various doctrines and denominations. I have been involved with some Catholic groups but since I am not Catholic I have not been totally enthusiastic about it. I dI not remember ever meeting another Presbyterian in SL.

This.

Some of the different groups have extremely different views of the world. I'd wager most of them would consider a Rasta like me a heretic if they ever understood us beyond just 'Bob Marley'...

That said... I've met plenty of agnostic, protestant and catholic folks who are friendly...

But we can't always talk faith so easily.

Sounds like you might enjoy attending some bible study groups in SL. There are several - my church runs one at 10.30am on Sundays, but you can find others.

We're at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Epiphany/101/147/50 - please excuse the mess, we're in the middle of a sim rebuild, so the layout is functional but not very pretty.

I'd probably burst into flames upon landing on the region.

   Or would the region burst into flames upon your arrival?

...not sure what exactly you mean by this. Not all Christians have a desire to open churches on every corner.

meaning is, two christians will disagree on so many points and levels soon they won't go to eachothers church anymore , even at least one will disagree with himself so will split off to a third denomination. Thats why there are countless, mostly protestant, denominations.

Ahh, gotcha. It is unfortunately quite true. Even within a single denomination, you have schisms and groups that break off and form their own churches. About to happen right now with the Methodist Church between two opposing sides that argue vehemently to their opinions and positions regarding one specific issue. I'm a Baptist, and they are fairly well known for their ability to argue with others and break free. My own pastor likes to make jokes that fried chicken on Sundays is just about the only thing you'll get all (Southern) Baptists to agree on.
