• 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 and how are we hearing?

    • “Sons, hear the instruction of a father, and listen in order to know understanding.” (Proverbs 4.1).

    It is good to hear when people fawn over us trying to win over us. Nevertheless, we can’t forget that there are diverse types of voices:

    • “So *it may be many kinds of sounds are in the world, and not one is without a distinct sound*. Therefore if I do not know the power of the sound, I will be a foreigner to him speaking, and he speaking will be a foreigner to me.” (1Corinthians 14.10,11).
    As we can see, nothing is neutral, picayune. Everything has a meaning and, if we ignore it, we risk to be led astray from Christ. And the best way to discern this is knowing Jesus’ voice:

    • “The doorkeeper opens to him, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. And when he puts forth his own sheep, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him. For they know his voice. And they will not follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.” (John 10.3-5).

    And woe of us if we don’t worry about it (Isaiah 5.13; Hosea 4.6):

    • “for this people's heart has become gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and they have closed their eyes, lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them." (Matthew 13.15).

    And so? Are you able to distinguish Jesus’ voice from Ha-Satan’s voice or the voice of your soul? Don’t adjourn the looking for it! Have a good week musing on the Holy Scripture in order to reach its ken, before you lose the great blessing that Jesus has prepared especially for you.
