• 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.

    First, take a deep breath. You are extremely agitated and anxious.

    As someone who also suffers from what is probably OCD, I feel your pain, and your words resonate with me. I'll give you two pieces of advice:

    1) You say you're not clinically diagnosed - I strongly suggest you seek professional help (if possible), and they can help you deal with the psychological aspect of your torment.

    2) Your concern about your faith is faith itself. If you had no desire to love and believe in Jesus, would you be making a post like this? Of course not. God knows what's affecting you, and He understands our difficulties caused by mental health problems. If you seek Him, He will guide you down the right path. Remember: intrusive thoughts are not your real thoughts. They are aberrations from your true thoughts.

    P.S.
    I also wanted to be a paleontologist (at one point!)

    You are too negative. Memorize the Gospels.

    Please re read Astrifer's post again.

    You need to see a doctor to get a diagnosis.

    You have intrusive thoughts, thoughts that tell you hasty things etc.

    What ever these thoughts are saying to you, what ever they are telling you to do, all you do is say, " yes that is right.". Do not talk to, argue or try to ignore or suppress these thought just acknowledge them and carry on.
    These thoughts are making you have doubts, to question what you believe.

    There is nothing wrong with this, so long as you are also looking for answers.

    Investigate your doubts, we what far cleverer people than us have to say about the questions that cause you to doubt.
    Try coldcasechristianity or creation.com, both of these look at questions and challenges to Christianity and answer them.


    Last point.
    You do not hold on to Jesus, it is Jesus who holds onto you and no one can snatch you or force you out of his hand.

    If you are an adult arrange to see your doctor and talk to him about your concerns about your mental health.

    If you are not an adult you will need to talk to your parents or legal guardian about wanting to see a doctor.

    If you are an adult and do not have a doctor,use Google to find out how to register with one, where they are in your area.

    Other than religious OCD it could be an evil spirit trying to sow unbelief in your heart because it knew you were watching that video. But as a child of God, you have the Holy Spirit and authority in Christ to cast away any evil spirits. Just rebuke the thoughts and any evil spirits in Jesus name. Seek mental help also just to rule out that possibility. I hope you will recover and get back to your walk with Christ.

    For that side, for faith itself -- faith comes from hearing the word of Christ -- and is strengthened/encouraged by hearing again, even every day, some of His words.
    :)

    To yourself read what Christ said, in the gospels.

    Start with Matthew: Matthew 1 NIV
    In chapter 3 Christ begins to speak.
    By chapter 5, you will need to slow down and really think on, meditate on, repeat to yourself, His words.

    The goal isn't to finish quickly, but instead you want to stay and remain with His words.
    To keep his words in your heart.

    I’m worried about something I believe got my belief is slipping slowly very slowly and very fast I was thinking of looking at testimonies and proof of Jesus maybe that would help but I could be two options I look at the proof I have a panic attack and I thought to get worse or I get my faith and believe how it used to be but I don’t know what to do I don’t want to give up I’m not going to it’s that I set an a little room all day and I stare at like the ceiling or on my phone looking for talking so I don’t know what to do in the situation should I look at proven testimonies or should I just wait I’m not at my parents right now foster care so should I wait until I go back or should I do it now or not do it at all
