    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.

    Well after smoking for 22 years I gave up and had not smoked for 2 and 1/2 years, when I started again. But I am going to stop again with help and my stop date is the 12 may. I am looking forward to that day and will have prepared myself for that day. It is not easy to stop but easy to begin so please pray for me as I know GOD is understanding of my situation and will help me give up again. Being a christian makes me feel pretty bad as my body is a temple where GOD dwells and I am polluting it so giving up should be easier I hope . With GODS help it will.:amen:

    I think that it is bad for you and not a very smart idea, but God will eventually convict you for it. All in His time, not ours.

    I am totally against it since I am allergic to this but my mom smokes at least "once in awhile" though she is a very, very devout Christian, I wished she didn't at all though.

    dont think it keeps anyone out of heaven but does hurt your witness. The Holy Spirit should do the work not other Christians, remove the beam from your own eye before taking the splinter out of your brothers
     
  7. I hate it, I think it stinks and it is hard to quit. I pray for those who have the problem, I quit 6 yrs ago.:amen:

    I smoked for 20 yrs. Started in High School, finally quit, when I got tired of hearing the kids complain. I struggled with the thought of it being a sin for quite awhile, mainly because I knew it was a stumbling block for others. God, however, loves me more than I know, and answered my prayer by letting me let go of the habit. Was tempted to restart for several years after I quit. But now have no desire, in fact I cant stand the smell of cigarettes now.

    Almost everyone I know smokes, used to smoke, or is starting to smoke again. It's gross and smells bad. However, I am past the point of caring or saying anything. They already know how I feel about it. I have never had one myself, so I can't really understand what the draw is.

    Unhealthy, highly addictive. Sin-not my job to be judgemental about, seems to me that's God's job. I love a lot of Christian who smoke. Are they going to heaven, depends on if they've accepted Jesus (also not my job to judge) not if they smoke or not. Let's stat majoring on majors (witnessing, loving others, helping those in need) and not on minors.

    I think labelling smoking as a sin isn't up to us, and the same for having alcoholic drinks.

    Some people smoke. Some people drink too much. Some people do both.

    The thing is, it all comes down to personal choice and free will. If someone chooses to smoke, or drink, that is the choice of the individual. If someone then decides to quit, it's up to us to support them in that action.

    I seriously admire those who have decided to quit smoking. I've not smoked, but I understand how hard it is to quit (I view it as being akin to me trying to give up chocolate). I wish them all the luck in the world, and pray that they succeed.

    smoking while not good for you will not keep you from heaven and it is wrong to single out smoking as there are many other things mentioned such as drunkenness, gluttony, etc.

    I love smoking cigarettes - it's my favorite relaxing past time. I'm 49 and have been smoking for 32 years. I do it in moderation and don't have any adverse effects from it.

    I bicycle at least 1000 miles a year and walk every day. I don't cough and I feel fine.

    It's a thing that I do - no more, no less
