  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.

    Confusion is being sown in all corners of the globe. We cannot and must not lose sight of what is, of truth. Rather than stalking the internet, we must calm down, ask ourselves what is real and what is not, and relearn the art of distinguishing what is from what is being broadcast.


    How do we know that we are at war: a war of what I want versus what is, of power versus wisdom, of willful blindness versus the real acceptance of what we are with our limits and our responsibilities? How do we know that the time has come for each of us to pick up his own mental cross and start truly paying attention to what is around him (and within the confines of his mind), rather than indulging in the hollow pleasure of being self-righteously shocked by—and engaging with—the loud what I want of the increasingly invasive intelligentsia: the cockamamie deliria spewed by ‘authorities,’ ‘experts,’ mediatic, political, spiritual, scientific? How do we know that we must all now calmly place our feet firmly on the ground, pray, hope, listen, watch, gather together, discuss only those things that we really know, and relearn the art of distinguishing what is from what is being broadcast (which is nothing but the intelligentsia’s what I want) so that we can actually see that nothing yet has inalterably changed, and ensure that it does not do so through our own inadvertent complicity?

    Confusion is being sown in all corners of the globe. Central European governments have once again mandated unintelligible new COVID-19 curfews without a concern in the world about the what is of the disease and of their orders’ effects: about COVID-19’s true mortality rate, about what we have learned about the virus and its treatment in these long months of pandemic fearmongering, about the many suicides—the “deaths of despair”—that the lockdowns have caused, about the loneliness and the spikes in drug and pornography addictions, about the livelihoods of those locked down, and about the long-term effects that the agitated rhetoric and isolation have already had on us all, and above all our youth, on our future.

    Government has lost credibility for many, thus the mixed response to their instructions. Plus the fact that many don't take Covid seriously. No surprise there.
