  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.

  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.

    Matthew 24:
    45
    Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over
    his household,
    to give them their needs in due season?
    46 Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing.
    47 Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods.
    48 But if that evil servant says in his heart, My master is delaying his coming,
    49 and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards,
    50 the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and
    at an hour
    that he is not aware of,
    51 and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites.
    There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.


    This is consistent with the Lord's teaching throughout:
    To know and to do His Father's Will.

    Mark 3:35 For whoever does the will of God is My brother and My sister and mother.

    Matthew 7:
    21
    Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he
    who does the will of My Father in heaven.

    22 Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name,
    cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?

    23 And then I will declare to them, I never knew you; depart from Me,
    you who practice lawlessness!


    Defined by abiding and being faithful with what we are given.
    Romans 12:
    3
    For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think
    more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one
    a measure of faith.
    4
    For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function,
    5 so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.
    6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith;
    7 or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching;
    8 he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with
    diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.

    1 John 2:17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does
    the will of God abides forever.
