• 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.
  8. 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.

Father's porn addiction

    I found out my Christian father has a porn addicton and I feel very concerned about it. I know the right thing is to tell it to my mother, but I'm embarassed to do it because my mother doesn't discuss with me about intimate relations almost none. I activated a filter which blocks these sites on his phone but I feel it's not enough, I don't have to keep it secret from mom.
    How should I speak with her about it?
    Please, pray for my family!
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I don't think that you should expose what you think your father is doing to your mother.

    Perhaps you can have a discussion about it with your father ... (i.e. just the fact that you know/suspect).

    Or ... perhaps you can speak to a minister ... and seek counseling as to what, if anything, you should do.

    How do you know he has an addiction if you never spoke to him about it? How where you able to gain access to his phone? something doesnt sound right here.

    You might be even more embarassed if you find out your suspicions were not totally true after you said something. Be very cautious, pray about it, and wait.

    Good advice so far, realizing that we only have a few lines in the story that probably has pages of information. What came to mind in reading the thread is that it's one thing to discuss the facts (this is what I saw, come and see for yourself) and it's another thing to discuss speculations that might have a different conclusion than the one you came to. Again, the voices out here only have a few details to go on, but hopefully it will be helpful in your concern.

    Hmm yeah I agree not knowing 100% could really backfire.. I think having someone to talk to.. might help better. Like the world.. Christ said I didn't come to condemn the world but to save it. They already feel guilty bad awful.. they need someone to reach down help them out. What might since I don't know effect your father.. effects most young people today more then ever.

    I don't know what you believe... but to help.. I will pray He the lord of lords king of kings to give you wisdom.. You will know its from GOD.. you will have great peace.

    There you have it....you have seen porn.......does this mean you are now an Addict? I think not.... Looking at a picture doesnt mean you are addicted to looking at those pictures.

    I think you are reading too much into it.

    I must admit I looked in his history because I wanted to know if he's an addict and he watches it every day

    Ultimately, this is an issue he will have to work out between God and himself.

    To bring your mother into it would only hurt her, cause conflict, and not necessarily solve the problem.

    Pray about it, and let God work it out.

    Welcome to CF. I have to be honest, this is the first time I have come across a daughter who caught their Father viewing pornography. It is usually the wife. That being said, your mother already knows so I suggest to not interfere.
