• 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 General Mental Health Forum is now a Read Only Forum. As we had two large areas making it difficult for many to find, we decided to combine the Mental Health & the Recovery sections of the forum into Mental Health & Recovery as a whole. Physical Health still remains as it's own area within the entire Recovery area.

    If you are having struggles, need support in a particular area that you aren't finding a specific recovery area forum, you may find the General Struggles forum a great place to post. Any any that is related to emotions, self-esteem, insomnia, anger, relationship dynamics due to mental health and recovery and other issues that don't fit better in another forum would be examples of topics that might go there.

    If you have spiritual issues related to a mental health and recovery issue, please use the Recovery Related Spiritual Advice forum. This forum is designed to be like Christian Advice, only for recovery type of issues. Recovery being like a family in many ways, allows us to support one another together. May you be blessed today and each day.

  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.

A random thought in my head which makes me worry again

    I was doing nothing and thinking about the subject travelling and which countries I was interested in and which not. Then I thought about Israel. I was thinking that I had no interest in travelling to Israel, but then I had this thought that I have sinned because I’m not interested in the country of the faith I believe in. Is it wrong to think like this? I tend to believe it’s not wrong, but my ocd makes everything worse.
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    What do you think it is going to take to escape such "trap" thinking?

    It's not as if 20th century Israel had a pillar of cloud by day and of fire by night leading the Jewish armies in returning to their promised land. Jesus isn't presiding over the Knessit as their king so going there is just a personal option today for every Christian. Visiting there doesn't make any of us more righteous or wicked for not going there.

    As far as I can tell, what you're concerned about only happens in the future. Zechariah 14:18

    Sin is an act of rebellion againsts God, or his laws.
    Thoughts caused by mental illnes are not in themselves sinful.
    These sort of thoughts just say or think, 'yes that is right' and move on.
    Don't talk with, argue or try to ignore these thoughts, just acknowledge and then ignore.

    These thoughts can be so confusing, can't they? What are your current strategies for dealing with these kinds of thoughts, and your OCD in general?
