• 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.

    "Concise Theology: A Guide to Historic Christian Beliefs" by J.I. Packer Here is an excellent book if you are hungry for meat. Short, one or two pages for growth and learning by J.I. Packer. It's available now for donation at this link.
    There is an explicit devotional book by J.I. Packer which edits quotes from his many writings. I would prefer the above book.

    The first devotional book that I bought, long ago, was My Utmost For His Highest. Still love that title! Like many devotionals, it was not written by the author (Chambers) but compiled by another from various writings. My wife loves it, also, but often feels discouraged at falling short. What is not clear about this to many is that Chambers was speaking, mostly, to full-time Christian workers in his travels. Context is always key to understanding clearly.

    The best devotional book that I bought, long ago, and to my regret, only started reading it in the last couple years, is C. H. Spurgeon's Morning and Evening. Unlike edited works by others, this was written by himself, specifically for a daily devotion. His pastor's heart shines throughout the book. You can find it free online to read.
