• 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 have we heard?

    • “Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.” (Pro 13:10).

    There are three type of people:

    1 – Proud: they don’t take heed to what people say. Only they are right in their mind. It isn’t in vain that the Creator resists those who are supercilious, but grants grace to the humble (James 4:6). Note that you don’t read in the Holy Scripture that the Creator resist to other kind of people.

    2 – Those who hear bad conversation. As Paul said:

    • “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.” (1Cor 15:33).

    3 – Those who are careful about how they hear (Luke 8:18). As Jesus said:

    • “… For whoever has, to him shall be given; and whoever has not, from him shall be taken even that which he seems to have.” (Luke 8:18).

    Considering that the faith comes by hearing (Rom 10:17), if we hark good things, we will ameliorate in character, wisdom, grace, etc.

    But, how to know what is the right person whom we ought to walk with?

    • “But as God has distributed to each one, as the Lord has called each one, so let him walk. And so I ordain in all churches.” (1Cor 7:17).

    One of the big problems is that we try to choose the people with whom we will keep in touch. The order is to preach the gospel, in truth, where we are and let Jesus uses us to manifest His light:

    • Those who didn’t long for the truth will go away from us
    • Those who consent to stay close to us, will be cleaned up within (Titus 3:4-6) and separated for exclusive use of the Creator (2Cor 3:18; see 1Cor 7:12-14).

    So, have a good day walking with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart (2Tim 2:22), always communicating with them as concerning giving and receiving (Phil 4:15).
