• 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.

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.

    there are times that my brain understands that the worrying thoughts of ocd does not count and i feel free and calm. there are times that ocd comes back stronger. and some times,i feel so afraid. it is so scary sometimes. i feel calm when I focus on Jesus but when I think if Jesus does not exist. I become so worried. and i think a compulsion has been creating that is to go for a confession in the Church Of Agios Eleutherios. but i do not want to do it if I have not made up my mind about Jesus. I feel worried to go for a confession as a compulsion without believing much in Jesus.

    I think it might help you to talk to a priest. There is an angle that a spiritual, Christian take on mental health can give, which secular angles can not give. I am thankful you're feeling a bit better, friend. Keep focusing on Christ, ignore the voices, and we'll continue praying for you.

    I concur with Gracia Singh. I think talking to a priest will help. Tell him your concerns about confession and about your struggles. I am glad you are feeling better and I will continue to pray for you.

    Good to know that you are better. I usually will try to keep myself positive for a longer run by watching inspirational videos like this
