  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.

    Hello, I'm really struggling and I will tell you guys and girls what's going on. I am having terrible thoughts of sellling soul and it's scary, I am also struggling in my love for God and I don't know why, I just want God and Jesus to be happy with me and I know that only God and Jesus Christ can save me, I don't know if I'm saved. I have accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and savior and I can say and I believe that Jesus Christ is Lord. I'm struggling and I don't want to lose God, please please pray for me, I want my soul to belong to God, I have scrupulosity so it could be that but I am scared. Please pray for me and also I struggle in my prayer life, sorry for the long post. God is good and Jesus is Lord.

    This IS scrupulosity, or OCD, whichever you want to call it. The fears of selling your soul and losing your salvation are common obsessive themes. Please recognize it as OCD and treat it as that. Do you have professional help for treating OCD? If not please do some research on using ERP and CBT. I can recognize some good resources if you need some.

    My brother in Christ, do not be afraid. I too was having those fears, but I found a way to overcome them. For almost a week all I could think about was if I was really saved, and one thing I did was try and reason with myself and God why I was feeling this way. You see, I was afraid because every time I would read a comic book rather then reading my Bible I felt like I was just setting myself up for a life of condemnation. I couldn't do anything with the fear but obsess over it. It got to the point where everything I did felt like just another step to condemnation. I realized that being afraid and running from the fear wasn't going to do anything but make it worse. So I prayed that God would help me out of these times, and while he did I realized that what I was doing was not helping me. See what I was doing was I would force myself to sit for an hour reading my Bible and praying, and I hated it because I was bored, I wanted to do something and I would even dread having to sit down for an hour reading because for the life of me I can't sit still and focus on one thing. So the fears continued and I continued to suffer through them. Eventually I talked to someone about my doubts and they told me about Mark 9:14-29 where a man brought his demon possessed son to Jesus and Jesus said this "Everything is possible for him who believes" and the father of the boy as it says in verse 24 "Immediately the boy's father exclaimed, 'I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!" So you see even he had doubts, we all do, but what we can do is pray and ask God to fix our doubts and strengthen our faith because it is a gift from God. I have ocd and yeah it sucks, but don't EVER let that get you down from achieving the life God wants you to live. You may not be interested in trying to grow your strength, but just pray that God shows you a miracle and that he bring you back to him. It happens to all of us at one point, but just know that you can always look to God. In the good times and the bad turn to God and he will be there for you. Hopefully this helps you, God bless you bro

    Isaiah 41:13 for the doubt and fear
    John 14:16 for salvation. If you, in the beginning when you were first saved believed and were certain (romans 8:16) that you were saved then you are still saved.
    If the thoughts you're having about selling your soul are scary and not welcome they are called intrusive thoughts. I have ugly thoughts of suicide but I just tell myself god loves me 1 john 4:19 and that would be a good one for you since you're struggling in your love for God.
    I'll pray for you. God have compassion for you.

    I had these awful thoughts in the past they are indeed scary. But if you are in Christ, fear not. Remember you gave Christ your life, therefore, it is not yours to sell. I don't think you have to worry about that ever. Also, I don't think Faustian bargains are a real thing.
