• 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 do we want to live for?

    • “I called for my lovers, but they deceived me; my priests and my elders expired in the city while they sought food for them to bring back their life. ” (Lamentations 1.19).

    Many people can’t find a point for their life. They don't wish to live, but they fear to die.

    In Jerusalem, the priests and elders were conning people with regard to the Creator and the Holy Scripture. How is doleful when the person:

    • isn’t able to do anything good;
    • is shanghaied, by his loathsome desires, to do the evil;
    • can’t receive nor practice the good, pleasure and perfect will of Jesus (Philippians 16.20,21; Romans 12.2);
    • can’t fit to the Peace that the Eternal created especially for him;
    • can’t find room within him to Jesus and His truth and love (Psalms 32.4,5).

    The only reason for us to be in this world is to glisten the wisdom and perfection of the Word of Jesus, that is to say, of all that He is.

    So, if you crave for meaningful days, instead of trying to buy your life with your toil, simply receive it freely and unstintingly from Jesus (Revelation 22.17; John 4.14; John 7.37-39) and live it, loving your neighbor as Jesus loved and love you. Make difference where you are.

    Good question. I ask myself that everyday.
