• 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 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.
  7. 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.

    Yeshiva University News reports:

    Imagine being able to study Torah using a rare, illuminated Bible
    written in 1489.
    Thanks to technology, today anyone can now enjoy this privilege by visiting
    Yeshiva University's Library Web site. Individuals can see every page of the
    nearly 2,000 images of the Bible, even enhance the images, and literally use
    the Bible as a textbook. To view the Prague Bible click on the Digital Projects
    link at http://www.yu.edu/libraries/

    One of the finest examples of a complete Hebrew manuscript Bible in existence,
    the three-volume manuscript includes 84 leaves with illuminated panels, gold
    calligraphy against foliate decorations and commentary by Rashi, the renowned
    medieval sage in a version of interest to scholars due to textual variants. The
    Bible was recently on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City
    as part of its "Prague, The Crown of Bohemia, 1347-1437" exhibition.
