• 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.

    Rejoice always,
    pray without ceasing,
    give thanks in all circumstances;
    for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you
    1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

    Pray at all times.
    When necessary, use words.
    St. Francis of Assisi

    Hi Bob, how can we pray w/o using words? Are you referring to the times when the Holy Spirit prays for us? .. e.g. Romans 8:26.


    p.s. - as an aside, it may interest you to know that what St. Francis is quite famous for saying ("preach the Gospel daily, use words if necessary"), he never actually said, nor would he, as an extremely active, itinerant preacher/evangelist, have agreed with such a sentiment if he'd heard someone else say it :preach: See below:

    As Theologian Ligon Duncan once said,

    "Saying, 'preach the Gospel, use words if necessary', is like saying, 'feed the hungry, use food if necessary.'" ;)

    Yes, it refers to the times we cannot express our petition to God with words. That's when the Holy Spirit intercedes for us.
    Romans 8:27
