• 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.

    What are you talking about? Just because God spoke trees into existence is irrelevant to the subject. God spoke many things into existence.

    I voted "other".

    The Scriptures are the word of God because they contain the Word of God. The Scriptures are the source, the fount of faith, in which God's words of Law and Gospel are presented, and in which Jesus Christ, the Divine Logos Himself, is found. Jesus Christ is the point of the Bible, Jesus is the Word, the Utterance, that fills every page of Holy Writ.

    The Scriptures are the word of God, because they contain the Word of God, and become the word of God through faithful preaching and reading/hearing of Scripture. The vehicle through which God continues to proclaim the truth of His Law, the truth of His Gospel; by which the Law mortifies our flesh and calls us to active righteousness in the world; and the Gospel which declares our sins forgiven and grants us peace with God in Christ Jesus and by which we are freely and fully justified by the imputed righteousness of Christ.

    As Martin Luther said, "We believe the Scriptures for Christ's sake; we do not believe in Christ for the Scriptures' sake."

    The Bible is the Word of God, but the Ford manual is the manual of Ford. It is God breathed alright, the message is, not like every word has to be that exact word for it to be God breathed, or else only the orginals are God's Word.

    Not quite sure how to vote in this poll, since the first option is actually broader than it appears. It is not the word of God in the way that Islamists claim the Qu'ran is the word of God(literally spoken by God in revelation) as it is the work of a collection of human authors with their own personalities being part of the fabric of it. Yet it is the word of God in the sense that every bit of it is authoritative, inspired, and intentioned by the Holy Spirit. So should I vote other or 1st option?

    Except the prophets, which claim pretty close to verbal inspiration, though Iā€™d guess the word choice is actually theirs.
