• 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.

Moderation Protocol

Staff Actions for Violation of CF Rules

Members and staff may report posts, signatures, avatars, custom titles, PMs, Chat Box comments, etc. which they think may be in violation of CF Forums' rules. Staff members review reports and come to consensus on whether or not there is a violation, and if so, what the consequences should be. Rule violations will be actioned by Counseling PM's, GPM's, RFE's, Warnings, and Bans.

  • Counseling Private Message (CPM): issued once and do not expire
  • RFE: Request for Edit
  • GPM: Grace Private Message
  • 1-3 Warnings: worth 1 point and expire after 3 months. When a member receives 3 points (a 3rd warning) they will receive a 30 day ban.
  • Infraction (4th Warning): worth 1 point and expires after 6 months. When a member receives a 4th point they will receive a 90 day ban.
  • Bans: used at the discretion of staff

Staff action process is as follows:

  • 1st violation: Counseling Private Message (CPM)
  • Subsequent violations: Warnings

RFE's, GPM's and Bans may be issued at the discretion of staff. Three points will result in a one month sitewide ban from CF. Four points will result in a three month sitewide ban from CF.

Types of Bans

  • Eban: An e-ban is a permanent site wide ban for members with fewer than 100 posts who are spamming or trolling the board.
