• 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.

    It must be someone I can totally be myself around, and they must be comfortable in that way with me. Honesty is important but a friend will not use honesty as a tool to hurt me (say something unkind and then give the excuse they were only telling the truth). Does not gossip about people. Likes a lot of the same things I do. A good sense of humour.

    a TRUE friend is someone that looks past your faults and shortcomings to the point they aren't seen and they share your life and honest with you about things. I call those people friends. oh...and we can play video games too :lol:

    my personal views on friendship are prolly no diffearnt then anyones but here it goes....

    a friend is someone who you dont even have to ask for help/something because you already know that he would do his best to help/provide but out of respect you do ask.

    a friend is someone that will not bad talk you or others for personal pleasure.

    a true friend is someone that will be themselvs 100% of the time and allow you to do the same w/o any fears or worries if they will be your friend tommarow.

    When troubles come your soul to try
    You Love the friend who just stands by.
    Perhaps there's nothing she can do
    The thing is strictly up to you.
    For there are troubles all your own
    And paths the soul must tread alone.
    Times when love can't smooth the road
    Nor friendship lift the heavy load.
    But just to feel you have a friend
    Who will stand by until the end.
    Whose sympathy through all endures
    Whose warm handclasp is always yours.
    It helps somehow to pull you through
    Although there's nothing she can do.
    And so with fervent heart we cry
    God Bless the friend who just stands by.

    Well, I suppose if you gotta be stabbed, at least you can see it coming. Still.......doesn't seem right to stab a friend though!

    I define friendship with honesty and loyalty. I will always be honest with my friends and I will never abandon them. EVER.

    family... people who love you no matter what. of course that could also apply with friends.

    I never got to post on the friends one. I really don't know what I look for in a friend. they have to be nice, of course, but I also like them to have things in common with me. and they HAVE to have a sense of humor, because I am constantly laughing :D

    some one who loves or is a good friend will be unconditionaly there for you, they won't mind if you ring them at 3am. i heard this i thought it was good for a friend
    A friend is some one who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.

    Best start on the definition of a friend, yet posted. The key word is unconditional.

    I'd put it simply as - someone I relate to who relates to me

    I think we can be too demanding on friendship at times........
