• 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.

    So like prior to all of this I was a bad student in school because of on going mental stuff like add and depression. But when I really put my all into it I did some good stuff. I don't know when I started having OCD symptoms presenting it's self but I remember making vows with God asking him to inflict others or myself with sickness if I didn't do something (apart of OCD is vow making). Anyway after making a vow about transportation issues I would I would never take a plane or train anywhere. Just buses. I asked God to kill me in both if I didn't stop habitual sin. Eventually I started getting in into the Bible and what it said concerning vow making. Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform to the Lord what you have sworn.’ But I say to you, Do not take an oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God in Matthew. So I got more scared. I just started believing God was out to get me. The verses commingly posted like Phil 1:29, Acts 9:16 and Isaiah 53:10 became all I knew. I seen a priest and he just convinced me that I should take my sufferings as an offer to God and that he did spare Paul, Jesus or the persecuted church of suffering so why anybody else? Between mentally struggling everyday and school going down I turned to drugs like acid and shrooms. I got excited going to sleep so I can escape my thoughts, After dropping all of friends, interests an hobbies I became a hermit. Anyways make a long story short I was told had to go with my parents somewhere since my great grandmother hurt herself severely but I'm not sure what got over me but as soon as I got there I freaked out and said "he's gonna kill me if I get on" and started screaming and punching the security guards. Again I did take acid that night before so yeah. Now I'm laying here justing thinking about when God will get me tbh.
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Welcome to the forum in Jesus name it's a great place to be for fellowship with Christians.
    The medicine I prescribe is to read your Bible and pray every day.
    John 3:16 is my favourite verse.
    God so loved the world that he gave his only Son that all who believe in him will not perish but have everlasting life.

    May the Lord bless you richly as you seek more of him in your life.

    I know how you feel, I have ocd and it's really hard to deal with. Just remember that God really really loves you and Jesus died for us. He definitely isn't out to get you. Jesus is always with you. God loves you and Jesus is Lord

    I'm so sorry to hear about your struggles. :( My belief is that God understands our weaknesses and is patient with us. Instead of condemning us for them, He wants to help lead us toward a healthier life. Because Jesus came to earth, He knows just how difficult the human life is. He is our good Shepherd, and walks with us and gives us grace. What kind of help are you receiving now? Are you receiving any treatment for your mental disorders, including OCD?
