  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.

    People want to be happy and understand life logically. People understand happiness over materialism and money. Also many people pray for sucess, career, material thinks. But God is love and love is not material, but emotion. People cannot understand, that hapiness can give you God and even nice natur and people don´t need to own house, money, car but can be happy. So goal of people shouldn´t be some material think, but love of God so emotion.

    On the other hand people daily face to bad emotions, like anger injustice, hate, fear, revenge, degradation. These bad emotions devil use to create between people conflicts and fights. And people accept, what devil wants and go to conflicts everytime. But if people would recognize their bad emotions and would pray for removing them from heart, thenafter people wouldn´t act according to devil and wouldn´t go to conflict.

    But people don´t understand situations, life and relationships over emotions and therefore it is difficult use love of God in their lifes.

    This forum would give us possibility to talk about emotions and this way people could more easily solve their problems with help of God. In this forum we could describe many life situations and recognize bad emotions we feel and after that we can pray for their removing from our hearts.

    We have bad emotions in our flesh (bad side). But fruit of sprit is love, joy, peace patience, etc, (more in Galatians 6). We as Christians should be like these.

    I think this could make a good forum.

    But even if we do not have this forum, you can talk about this subject in the "Daily Devotionals" section, using scriptures and how you learn to devote to God by having good management of your emotions. Also, you may start a discussion about a scripture which has emotional meanings > in the "Christian Scriptures" forum. And we can talk about emotional development and maturity in our "Spiritual Formation and Disciplines" forum. And there are other places in Christian Forums, where you are welcome to discuss this subject.

    So, thank you for sharing these good things you have said. Yes, we need to love God with the right emotions, and not give in to fear and lust and greed and unforgiveness and self-righteous anger.

    And in "General Theology" we can discuss how much emotions need to be included in how to love God.

    So, welcome to Christian Forums :)

    We live life through emotions. Thinks we have or situations which we face make us some emotions in the life. If they are good we are glad and happy. Problem is when emotions are bad. Than we start act. And we don´t know how to do it, so we act with anger, we feel injustice and start to go in conflict. And we do sin. But in the moment when we face bad situation we have help - God. Only God can help us remove bad feelings from our heart. Nobody else. So let´s to use this big advantage we have!!! And everytime, not only morning or evening Let´s pray to God and ask Him to remove bad emotions from our hearts. And we have answer on second part of our lives. What to do if we feel bad emotion.

    If we pray for sucess, career, material things and God fulfil us this, why we have anyhow everytime problems? Because we still feel bad emotions in daily situations. These emotions use devil to control us and lead us in problems, so lose, conflicts, argues, degradation or criticism from other person. And in the time when we pray for succes on the meeting or any material things, we can pray also for removing of fear from our hearts, that we will not be succesful in this case or we will not have material things, what we pray for. It takes 10 seconds only. If we get rid of bad emotions from our hearts with help from God, devil will have no chAnce to control us and lead us in problems.

    Emotions are normal. You can defeat fear by say, “ God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and a sound mind.” And other scriptures in the word of God. Say them over and over until you are sure.

    Fear not for I am with you. Isa 41:10. I can do all things in Christ who strengthens me.’ There is no fear in love for fear hath torment…..

    For 2000 years we have been listening in church, how we should love everybody, how anger and envy is sin, how we should pray for our enemy, how we should forgive, how we can not tell to brother that he is stupid, how we can not judge each other, how we should not resist evil and anyhow we argue, we divorce, we don't talk to our neighbors for years, we scream each other, we humiliate each other, we prepare revenge, we hate each other, we judge, we can't forgive. Why? What's the problem? We are Christians. We visit churches. We pray in the morning, in the evening, during the day, and anyhow we face to problems? Yes, the devil is cunning, but if we do according to all of Jesus' words and commandments, we should not get into trouble or conflicts, and we should be happy.



    The problem is that we can't deal with our injustice and emotional injuries. The devil abuses it to provoke our anger and fear and thus deviate us from God's way and lead us to hatred, revenge and inability to forgive.



    The devil also knows that exchanging of opinions is not just a discussion or finding a good solution, but that each of us has a right to do something, or can say something that can hurt or humiliate the other. The devil uses criticism and anger against neighbor mainly to create conflicts. And Jesus clearly warned us not to judge our neighbor.



    The solution is easy to understand, although it requires our great patience and strong faith in God: We should pray all the time when we feel bad feelings such as injustice, anger, fear, hatred and other bad feelings to God for helping us get rid of these bad feelings and make our hearts pure and open for receiving God's love, joy and happiness. We will stop the devil to control us through bad feelings constantly abusing us, make sin, and pushing us into doing evil and conflicts.



    God's signs show me, that it will bring us happiness in our lives and God will protect us from the devil.
