• 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.

  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 know I have OCD but I need some help and understanding. I'm new here but before I became a member I read some of the OCD stories. I have suffered from OCD for a while, when I was younger I would have to go back and touch things or I couldn't leave the tv volume set on and odd number. It sounds strange but you have to have been there to get it. My OCD caused me to have blashphemous thoughts that caused me to feel worthless, unforgivable, and made me ill. I have always known God but never began to understand The Word like I do now. I watch Joyce Meyer alot and she has helped me. I want to live a Christian life, but I have commited many sins and I know that there are no "big" sins, they are all the same. I feel horrible for them, I never want to commit them again and I have asked for forgiveness. But my question is, why do I still feel unforgivable or why am I afraid that God doesn't believe that I am sorry? I feel like I am not doing it "right"...does that makes sense? I have good days and I have horribly bad days. I'm thankful there is a place like this that helps people.

    Feeling unforgivable, and feeling that you are not doing it "right" is exactly the problem with ocd. Call it for what it is - a feeling (a pretty horrible feeling, I know).

    It's like "knowing" your hands are clean, but "feeling" dirty.

    marcb I hate to hear that anyone else is going through this but thank you for giving me some comfort. With OCD is there a panic and anxiety problem? I don't know if anyone else has felt like this but I also feel like that I am praying for forgivness and I want to turn my life around, but then I wonder....am I doing this because I want to or just so I can keep myself out of hell? It scares me and makes me sick to my stomach, it's like I wonder if I really care? Is that normal or has anyone else felt like this? I feel so alone and scared.
