  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.

    @Hammster , you asked where the pro-Biden threads were? Here's one.
    It's boring. And charming. We've missed this... normalcy... for the last 4 years. No pompous bragging about how great he or his administration is. No snarky insults thrown at the reporters. When he talks about love you can tell he actually means it because he knows what it actually is. This is why I voted for him. So we could get back to this.

    No different than Trump holding a Bible in front of a church.

    Right ...

    Wait, ... no forced clearing of assembled crowds with gas and batons.

    And ... no accompanying military officers and cabinet officials.

    Also ... no symbolic, hypocritical, and unproductive photo stance.

    Hmmm ... maybe quite a bit different ...

    That. was NOT. Human. Like. At all.

    That was creepy and insane.

    But this thread is not about Trump. It's about Biden and how he's just a normal person who actually cares about the country.

    People have been conditioned away from knowing the difference..... which kind of freaks me out for our future.

    I can not believe that you deliberately ignore the context surrounding that photo.
    P.S. Trump hold the bible upside down.

    First of all, President Biden wasn’t showing off by holding up a bible in front of a church in an effort to impress his voting base. Secondly, President Biden didn’t have the people in the area tear gassed and aggressively cleared out so he could have his picture taken. Next, President Biden is visibly happy and smiling rather than having a scowled look on his face like he hadn’t been able to go the bathroom for several days. And lastly, his wife obviously enjoys his company rather than having a look of disgust on her face whenever she looks at her husband. The picture of President Biden and the First Lady in the OP article is contrast to the majority of pictures we have seen of the previous President and his wife.

    The picture of President Biden and his wife maybe a photo-op, but their demeanor shown in the photo and the context behind the photo is completely different than the other pathetic photo-op in front of the church that you mentioned. It’s clear to me by the look on President Biden’s face that he is a very happy man and that happiness rubs off on other people. Kindness and compassion from the President during a national crisis like this pandemic can be encouraging to a lot of Americans who are suffering.

    Watching the video closely it’s backwards, not upside down, and he’s clearly unaccustomed to handing books.

    As bad as it was, that actually did not happen. Link This has been circulated so much but misinformation is bad no matter where it comes from. Plus it's a stupid little aside that takes away from how bad it actually was clearing away protesters with tear gas for a even more stupid photo-op.

    Normal people are the problem. We need strong, visionary leaders.

    Normal.
    Strong.
    Visionary.

    Looks like Trump is 0 for 3.

    I didn’t say that the situation that preceded it was the same.

    It’s all symbolism over substance. For both of them.

    It could be argued that different times call for different types of leaders.

    In this period, we need someone who will help us ALL build back to where our lives were previous to the pandemic, ... all the while being encouraging and empathetic.

    We certainly don't need someone who is whacked-out, unempathetic, and insane ...
