  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.

  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.

    I need help please! I was watching a video about repeating sins and I was looking at the comments and saw someone wrote and I was reading in my head. “In Jesus’s name I..” I don’t want to type down The negative thing this person said about spirit. But my mind and thoughts were slipping acting on its ow. I paced the floor in my room repeating I accept Holy Spirit. The r word jumped in my head and I fought the r word. Moments later my OCD made me say I accept the Holy Spirit. Then this time inappropriate pictures slipped in my thinking process. The whole month of July has been a train wreck! I found out about willful sin. I had morning panic attacks. I don’t know what I am suppose to do or what to say! I have a porn and m addiction since middle school. I don’t know where to turn with all this worries and questions in my head fearing I have said something I don’t mean to say. And you know the worst feeling I have right now. I stopped watching porn and m for three weeks and relapsed back yesterday and today. Three weeks ago I felt like God was giving me a sign like Christmas Carol, telling me I should repent and confess that night I found out about willful sin. Now I feel like I blew my chance. I feel so broken!

    Please dear struggler don't despair, God loves you even though you are sinner, in the hope that you will flee to Him and find your freedom from such sin as have now still captivated you.

    For years i struggled with lust, ever since my sexual assault at 11. It was hellish because my understanding of sex was completely stuffed up. i didn't even dare to tell God about my sins that is how scared i was of Him. For years i struggled rock bottom, not wanting God to exists so that my sins wouldn't matter, until it dawned on me that Jesus loved us enough to die for us while we were yet sinners.

    Oh the revelation blew my mind! For God loved me even though my sexuality was completely stuffed up and unholy! My sins didn't matter to my saved status. Once i began to accept His grace like that, love for Jesus started to grow in m, to flourish really. Love for God knows little sin, i soon found out, so i began to sow His loving grace into my heart. i made that my daily activity - eating His grace and learning to love Him for who He is revealed by the word of God itself right inside my heart.

    Unbelievable what happens when we begin to love God instead of fear Him. His word backed me up and helped me along in my quest to hear His voice loud and clear, so very different in how it used to accuse me when i still hadn't put my faith in God's love.

    God's word became my freedom. i died in the following spiritualities over the years that followed, as i grew in His love. Lust, lack of self control, paranoia, perversion, arrogance, pride, selfishness, unfaithfulness, doubt and unbelief all perished out of me and my sins in them ceased.

    Honest as love for God grows the will to sin dies - automatically - each day a bit more. For as long as you eat grace when you fall you will grow in God's love and your will to do sin will go away. The only one to really watch out for is the spirit of unfaithful love itself. She is the great prostitute in your heart. Unfaithful love is unlike Jesus and only thinks about itself. Selfishness needs to die in us but i know that God's Spirit brings good life alive instead of the misery unfaithfulness brings us.

    Today i'm basically free from wilful sin. Life is great with Jesus as King, i'm so very proud of Him, for He got done what i couldn't do. He washed me from my sins in real life and for real.

    So be smart and let sin be sin, just like Revelation 22 advises us to do, and let holy living be holy living, you endeavour to stay on God's side of the coin, and let wilful sin perish in its own misery. To love God and neighbour is what makes God glad but even this is not required to be saved.

    Jesus saved you out of mere grace, nothing you do, can hinder that salvation, but you can miss out on it down here if you don't believe that God's word is true. Already 2000 years ago Jesus saved you from your sins, it is for you to believe that and love Him back in return for what He did. This is how wilful sin will die out of you - you learning to love Jesus for His grace and surrendering yourself a sinner into His hands and letting Him transform you from the inside out, turning you into a fearlessly loving person.


    Be of good courage with the right mind set O.C.D will help you along instead of the other way around. It is amazing how Jesus does that.

    Peace.

    We are made whole in Christ and through Christ only. I struggle myself with these evil thoughts as do we all. You mentioned porn and "m" which I know what that refers to. It's very hard, especially for me since I have these same struggles.

    There is a thing called spiritual maturity and it is something that I work on and you must work on as well. It is the process that happens after salvation. Here is an article to that.

    If you struggle with salvation, then here is an article to that

    God be with you my friend and I am sorry that you are struggling right now. Keep the faith and remain with Christ.

    You know you can pray to the Holy Spirit too? I often do this and He comforts me. He is our Comforter!

    This is an example of what I pray to Him:

    Are you saying the OP can continue in wilful sin and remain heaven bound? I hope not

    It is intended to pique your interest just as it has. It's an often misused scripture designed to give people what they already want, an easy way out, but there is no easy way out. Or it is basically to say you may do willful sin and not worry about it. It is a lie, and that is not what the scripture means.

    Hi Tytoman, Though the devil will try to make you believe wilful sin is fine, it's easy to see you are on the right track and know bettor than that.
    And wilful sin doesn't mean God is going to give up on you just like that.

    See, the difference in you and others in wilful sin, is you are trying, that is the key...keep trying. Remember how much more secure you felt after you had stopped porn for a few days? That's what Jesus wants for you, to get rid of sin and always feel good about yourself.

    The recommendation here is very simple, keep asking forgiveness when we mess up with anything like this, and get back to trying to stop. God will forgive us each time if we are sincerely sorry and are sincerely trying. And if were are sincerely trying, we will eventually get free.

    So ask God for help, ask for forgiveness when you mess up , and get right back to trying to quit. Again, the key is to keep trying, and don't give up on yourself no matter how many time you relapse on any ongoing sin.

    God says in Matthew 18:21-35
    21 ¶Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

    22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

    So we are told to forgive seven times seventy, or a lot as the scripture seems to be saying, so we know God will do the same for us.

    Again don't give up on yourself and God won't give up on you, and though I don't think you will, because you know better in your heart, never let anyone tell you ongoing sin is ok, and not to worry about it, but at the same time, all is not lost if we only try, and try again. and again if that is what it takes. :)

    See what I mean, Tytoman.
    We all know we can overcome sin, making that a lie, but the comment there is to make us relax and continue our ongoing sin, don't worry about it, but don't you believe it, it's a doctrine of the Devil who hopes you will not worry about sin, continue in it, giving the devil just what he wants in the end.

    I hate it when people come in here and try to confuse one of Gods true followers, who are trying so hard to do the right thing, and try to tempt them into continuing their wilful sin. It's outrageous.

    I've never read anywhere in the bible that say we can or should pray to the Holy Spirit. Can you please show us scripture to back up that claim?

    Jesus said to pray "Our Father" who art in heaven...." when he taught us to pray.

    We should pray to God. The Holy Spirit is God, Jesus is God and the Father is God.

    The Holy Spirit is our Comforter. When I pray to Him, He comforts me, I feel His presence. He reassures me of my salvation, calms me down etc.

    Mainly we should pray to the Father, but there is nothing wrong with praying to Jesus or the Holy Spirit.

    If you need comfort offer a prayer to the Holy Spirit, that's one of His roles in our lives.

    You didn't show me where the bible backed up you claim.

    I did show you where the bible backs up my claim. I can point you to the exact scripture I mentioned if you like.

    Those are all denominations, and what no denomination means, and I know of no other way to put it but that I have none denomination. Do you know what "denomination" means? If not, please look it up and I am none of those.

    Yes, I do, you can read it in the Bible.

    Why don't you stop hiding behind "someone else says so" as your only backing, and prove how the comments you told the op are a fact. surely you have some beef to your beliefs, or do you?

    The op seems to believe as he should and I am working with him, and warning him of false doctrine along the way. However, if you want to prove your doctrine is not false, then do that.

    It's always a bad sign when someone wants to ask, but not answer any questions, and that always seems to happen at just about this point in these conversations. :)

    What is your Church??

    And please answer the first question I asked you. Here ya' go, I'll make it easy on you:
