  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.

    In one capacity or another every believer can and should maintain a perpetual amount of “joy” and “gratitude” if there is to be normal spiritual “growth” in the Lord Jesus (Phl 4:4; 1Th 5:18). It would be falsely sought in presenting cause to withhold these two cherished attributes toward God—as there is nothing in which the Father does not mean good for us, seeing all is orchestrated as such concerning every situation; and maturity here accords with the level of understanding Romans 8:28, that this promise is availingly true and operates unceasingly every moment for the believer.

    In trusting God that all is for learning and never for punishment (rather loving chastisement), there’s nothing excusable against knowing His desire is always for us to joy in and be thankful in all that occurs in our life. Thus, one can welcome each day with the assurance that it has been planned for the benefit of your growth in your faith; as faith is solely in this present life and will be unnecessary in the next, which will be walking by sight and no longer by faith!
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?
