• 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.

I need help. I don't know if what I did was a terrible sin. I have confessed to God but I'm scared.

    Now this is going to sound crazy, because really it is. When I was praying before bed roughly a week ago, I said something blasphemous. My religious OCD kicked in and now I have been repeating the phrase "I worship God" over and over in my head. Around 15 minutes ago, while repeating this phrase, I ACCIDENTALLY didn't say God, but the bad guy, if you know what I'm saying. I have been a christian my whole life, and was baptized last december. I need help, because, while I did confess, I'm scared that what I accidentally said in my head will damn me forever.

    I've been having panic attacks because of this and I need help.

    Then tell God you are sorry, as 1john1:9 says He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purified from all unrighteousness.

    Then thank him for forgiving you.

    It's okay! You haven't blasphemed, which is something deliberate. Even deliberate blasphemy from a scrambled mind is forgiveable by God! Yours was accidental. Don't worry about this for another moment. X

    Isaac, God knows it was a mistake and u didn't mean to hurt Him. He also knows that u have religious OCD. I don't think He's upset. Continue to pray. You are still very much loved by Him.

    "I the LORD search the heart" (Jeremiah 17.10). We can be humbly content to let the Lord see our hearts.

    @Hopeful37 Continuing in prayer is indeed the believer's vital breath. "Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving." (Colossians 4.2)

    Isaac----I have been walking with God for 23 years and have had the same thing happen a few times in those 23 years. God assures us that he is concerned about taking us from Glory to Glory. He knows when we our condition is frail and when we are strong, but no matter what he continues to nudge you forward. If you have asked for forgiveness, he has erased the mistake. He is interested in all the things he still wants to do with you and through you. It's a love that was committed to us while we were still sinners....
