  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.

A simple question.

    I don't know.
    The bible is not clear on that one... I think that they probably are, but until I get to heaven I won't know for sure. :)

    Hi Criada and Novembres,

    "This brings up another question. Are angels spirits?

    I don't know. The bible is not clear on that one... I think that they probably are.."

    I ask because in the Bible it describes a war between God's angels and Satan's followers, and I have to wonder, how do spirits fight? Any ideas?

    Well, the description is in Revelation, which is a description of a vision, and largely figurative. So, I am not sure that it describes a physical battle between physical entities.
    That sound a bit of a cop out.. but, that is my opinion.

    On the other hand, there are a lot of instances in the Bible of angels appearing in physical form, so it appears that they are certainly able to do so! In the words of the old hymn, "Tis mystery all..."

    Dear Soul Searcher. God, the Maker of Heaven and Earth, He made us in His image, He loves us, and is waiting now to forgive us, and accept us as His selflessly loving and worthy sons and daughters. Simple question, simple answer, Soul Searcher. I say this humbly and with love. Greetings from Emmy, your sister in Christ.
