• 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.

    The true way to be humble is not to stoop till you are smaller than yourself, but to stand at your real height against some higher nature that will show you what the real smallness of your greatness is. -Phillips Brooks-
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    We can do nothing, we say sometimes, we can only pray. That, we feel, is a terribly precarious second-best. So long as we can fuss and work and rush about, so long as we can lend a hand, we have some hope; but if we have to fall back upon God -- ah, then things must be critical indeed! - A. J. Gossip-

    "If men would have something to do with their hearts and their thoughts, that are always rolling up and down (like men with oars in a boat), after sinful vanities, they might find great and sweet employment to their thoughts upon Christ. If those frothy, fluctuating, and restless hearts of ours would come all about Christ, and look into His love, to bottomless love, to the depth of mercy, to the unsearchable riches of His grace, to inquire after and search into the beauty of God in Christ, they would be swallowed up in the depth and height, length and breadth of His goodness." -Samuel Rutherford-

    For Real.....?

    "I can soooo relate to David. Amazing that we forget our condition. And what might that be? This one: For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me. ~Psalm 109:22 ......We all are frail. We stumble. We fall. We die. We return to the dust from whence we came. Surreal? Hopefully not. It's as real as the next funeral we attend.

    For real."

    "We are not to make the Torah into God Himself, nor the Bible into a 'paper pope.' The Bible is only the result of the Word of God. We can experience the return of the Word of God in the here and now, the perpetual return of the actual living, indisputable Word of God that makes possible the act of witnessing, but we should never think of the Bible as any sort of talisman or oracle constantly at our disposal that we need only open and read to be in relation to the Word of God and God Himself."

    "By his creation, then, each man is isolated with God; each, in respect of his peculiar making, can say, “my God;” each can come to him alone, and speak with him face to face, as a man speaketh with his friend. There is no massing of men with God. When he speaks of gathered men, it is as a spiritual body, not a mass. For in a body every smallest portion is individual, and therefore capable of forming a part of the body." -Geo. MacDonald-

    Free moral agency is an expression of human invention and to talk of the freedom of man is flatly to repudiate his spiritual ruin. Nowhere does Scripture speak of freedom or the ability of the sinner, on the contrary, it insists on his moral and spiritual inability. -A.W. Tozer-

    We pursue God because, and only because, He has first put an urge within us that spurs us to the pursuit. "No man can come to Me except the Father...draw him." This prevenient drawing takes from us every vestige of credit for the act of coming. -Aiden W. Tozer-

    True prayer begins in the heart of God and is shared by those He lifts into His Presence to Him in His intention! Lord, teach us to pray!
