• Welcome to Christian Forums
  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

  1. Christianity And Racism

    Christianity has a racism problem. The same faith that has a verse that says that "all are one under Christ Jesus" is the same faith with a lot of people engaging in what I would absolutely call racist attitudes. Racism is not always outright slavery and shouting slurs; sometimes it's far more subtle: victim-blaming when the police use excessive force on a person of color and it kills them, stereotypes about immigrants being "dirty" and "bringing crime" - all of these are racist. Maybe in...
  2. Talk To Me

    A message for those who may be offended by something I have said (either to you or to someone else): send me a private message and let me know. I am not a mind reader and cannot determine who is and who isn't offended through a computer screen. But I'm also not a monster. If you come to me and are genuinely upset by something I said, it's very likely that I will be happy to oblige and either change the offending remark(s) or delete them. Of course, this is within reason. If you supposedly...
  3. Charlottesville Nazis

    I'm going to make this brief and to the point: if, after two years, you're still trying to claim that Trump didn't say that there were "good people" on the side of the Nazis marching in Charlottesville, you're either a liar or incredibly dense. It's on video that he said this: In either case, don't bother to spout that malarkey in my presence. You will be immediately put on ignore, no questions asked. Maybe that doesn't mean anything to you, but don't expect me to waste my time trying to...
  4. By Their Fruits

    Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? What does it say about someone when every word out of their mouth is either braggadocio, a lie, or some combination of both? What does it say about someone when they claim to be a big, strong manly man, and yet take every opportunity to take to Twitter to whine about all the ways that things are "unfair" to them? What does it say when someone claims to be an upstanding Christian and yet can't even...
  5. Enemies

    Muslims are not my enemy. Immigrants - regardless of their nationality - are not my enemy. Asian, African-American, Native American, Jewish, etc people are not my enemy. The true enemy are those who walk among us who wish to destroy our country, its institutions, and the values on which it was founded (one of which was caring for immigrants who come here seeking a better life) from within. The enemies of America are people who think that the maintenance of their personal power and the...
  6. The Terribly Tiny God Of Maga

    [URL="https://johnpavlovitz.com/2019/04/11/the-terribly-tiny-god-of-maga-christians/"]The Terribly Tiny God of MAGA Christians[/URL] Honestly, I'm not even sure who John Pavlovitz is, but he so succinctly and accurately nails a lot of "evangelical" "Christianity" these days that I had to share this. It needs to be said and shared among people who believe, as I do, that Christianity is being perverted and subverted as it becomes a wholly-owned subsidiary of the GOP. Ringo
  7. American Christianity

    I came back to this site without high expectations about the level of discourse over the horrible and cruel way that this government is treating immigrants. My worst suspicions were confirmed when I clicked through the political threads and saw how self-professed Christians were shrugging away the "zero tolerance" rules that separated families (so much for being "pro-family") and locked kids away in tent city concentration camps in the desert. This is the problem with a lot of American...
  8. Understanding Trump

    Here's a by-no-means-comprehensive list of things Trump doesn't care about: 1. You 2. The working-class 3. Mexico 4. Immigration 5. The national anthem, and who stands for it 6. Tax cuts/reform 7. Health care, "great" or otherwise 8. Veterans 9. America Trump doesn't care. He doesn't care. To understand Trump, you only have to understand one thing: he cares about number one. That's it. Not any border wall. Not the "evangelical" "Christian" rubes he suckered. Not coal workers. Trump....
  9. Homosexuality Rule

    Note to the idiots behind the new "controversial topics" rule: it doesn't "promote" homosexuality to report news about Don't Ask Don't Tell (DADT) or show your support for people who have a different sexual orientation. Just because I don't have an enormous chip on my shoulder about "the gays" and the so-called "gay agenda" doesn't mean that I "promote" homosexuality. It simply means that unlike most modern Christians, I'm not interested in constantly picking on people who are different...
  10. The Biggest Lies, Misconceptions and Myths About the Separation of Church and State

    Even though the Separation of Church and State is not a hard concept to understand, the myths and outright lies about Separation continue to pervade political discourse in this country. Search for books concerning Separation of Amazon, and most of the books you find are written by authors who don't understand the issue but don't let that stop them from writing books that perpetuate these lies. I'm tired of having to cover the same ground every time I debate the issue, so here are the...
  11. Denominations

    What's the difference between Catholics and Methodists? The answer is that there is very little difference. We worship the same God. We follow the same Bible. Our church histories are virtually identical. So why is it that some Christians have become so entrenched in perpetual 'Catholic vs. Protestant' wars? The Catholics on EWTN, the Catholic network, seem unwilling to move past such old wars. On one of their shows, 'The Journey Home', new Catholics are described as having "converted"...
