• 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.

  3. 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.
  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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.

Prayers for our baby on the way...

    My fiancé and I have been together for over a year and have been engaged for about four months. We are not yet married. However, we have struggled with sexual sin quite a bit. I am now 6 weeks pregnant. We have 2 daughters from previous marriages. We do love each other very much and we are completely devoted to raising this child. However I do live in fear that because what we did was a sin that God may cause a miscarriage or an unhealthy baby. I fear God because our sin. I pray for forgiveness. I thank God for this baby every day. And I pray for the health of this baby. Any advice or prayers are greatly appreciated for our family.
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    For Christ there is no 'time'. He lives in and is the past, present, and future. Therefore, when he died on the cross he FORGAVE all sin. At that moment he forgave you of your sins; past, present, and future. So why is it that so many people believe that he is waiting to punish us for our sins when he has already forgiven them? To attribute such fears to God is to belittle what he did on the cross for you. He is not looking to punish you or your child. In fact, he is planning a future of hope for you. 1 John 4:18- "Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear; If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love." Since Christ is perfect love, fear cannot have a place near him. What you are feeling is not from Christ. Your best option is to seek Christ through prayer and worship. Learn to live in his perfect love. Ask him what he wants for your life and for your Child's. When you learn to live in his perfect love, you will want to do what pleases your Heavenly Father and you will begin to see that he is not a God waiting to punish you for sin, but a God who wants to love on you because he is delighted in his child whom he LOVES. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
    God bless you and your baby. I hope you find the peace that Christ offers. Be still and rest in him.

    It's okay to be worried. Baby is a gift. The same is true love. Believe in your happiness and thank God that he gave it too you. May your pregnancy be safe!
