  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.

    It helps me stay focused in prayer, it's a sweet-smelling burnt offering to God, and some believe it helps carry our prayers to heaven.

    Because we should worship God with all of our being, which includes our senses. It is analogous with our prayers going up to heaven.

    Because those who have worshiped God have been ordered to use incense since the beginning? Because the Angels use incense in heaven?

    How about "Because it smells good and we like it?"

    For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith the LORD of hosts.
