• 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.

    Jesus said that if we are His disciples we are to love one another. He said that we are to love our neighbours as ourselves. He said we are to love our enemies. 'Goodwill and peace to all mankind'. Can we live like this? Yes with His love within us,flowing out of us.

    ”We ought to be like lilies in the midst of thorns, which, however they be pricked and pierced, never lose their sweet and gentle fragrance.”
    - St Bernard of Clairvaux

    ”Above all things we should be meek toward our enemies. We must overcome hatred by love, and persecution by meekness. It was thus the Saints acted, and in this manner they conciliated the regard of their bitterest enemies.”
    - St Alphonsus Liguori

    ”It is better to have to give an account to God for too much mercy than for too much severity.”
    - St Antoninus

    I know we will always experience this estate as Christians, thank God! But I think things have changed since the Spirit spoke this. I think that goodwill was carried quite far back then when the tree was still 'green'. But mankind has sown too much evil for a just God to equip evil further. He will never leave us and we will continue to love our enemies, but I beleive He that 'witholds' has already begun to exit the last remnants of 'goodwill' lest they hear and beleive the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. What does that spell for the stranger who doesn't now know God? It spells that the old ways are no longer going to cut it, , the name that is above all will have to become into clearer view and spoken with more spotonaeity. God bless all who love the Lord in truth (I am weak, but keep at it, He makes strong).

    We love the sinner although we hate the sin. God loves us although we have sinned. Jesus died to save us from our sin. If we have received Jesus and repented and been born again we have been restored into the family God from which we were estranged because of our sin. God's favour is upon us!

    I was thinking again the other day how we can lift people up with simple words of encouragement.
    Sometimes I watch videos about someone complimenting strangers and seeing their faces light up they thank him and say have a good day. That can change your whole day for the better :amen:
