• 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.

Is this a sin or not, and if so should you be on the safe side if you don't know?

    I will give one example.
    I go to sleep in the morning and wake up in the night, it seems strange but pulling all nighters made it this way and I feel like there is not enough time in the day.

    It doesn't seem God designed man to sleep during these times, and there may be health consequences for it.

    But anyways I thought to myself, "Try to do the correct thing always, and then I won't have to worry about if it's a sin or not".

    And if it happens not to be, I just made a sacrifice for the love of God, which is probably better than ignorantly sinning and finding out later.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    It's not a sin, or at least is not one unless you want it to be.....

    I have worked my share of nonstandard work shifts, especially grave yard. That shift is good for some people, with certain needs. Not to mention, there is the business of eating and having money to pay rent etc. and sometimes those kinds of jobs are the ones where you can be hired on quickly with no fuss.
    Granted our bodies were not designed for it, but somebody has to work to keep things running in this modern post industrial society that we live in.


    By the way there is a lot you can do to help yourself if you work this shift. Like using Black out curtains on your bedroom, becoming more disciplined in your sleep schedule, and if necessary taking Melatonin before bed to help you sleep.

    Some people, like me, are wired to stay up at night and sleep during the day. It's even hereditary. My mom was the same way.

    I agree, but be careful. The modern generation once again believes a wooden stake is the cure.

    At least you can visit Europe or Asia without worrying about jet lag.

    I worked third shift for years. I would get home at about 8:30 am generally sleep from 10am to 6pm in the evening.
    Gotta do what ya gotta do. I think you are fine.

    The watchman watches in whatsoever capacity he is appointed to: this is not a matter of sin, but vigilance to keep ourselves away from sin.
