• 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 General Mental Health Forum is now a Read Only Forum. As we had two large areas making it difficult for many to find, we decided to combine the Mental Health & the Recovery sections of the forum into Mental Health & Recovery as a whole. Physical Health still remains as it's own area within the entire Recovery area.

    If you are having struggles, need support in a particular area that you aren't finding a specific recovery area forum, you may find the General Struggles forum a great place to post. Any any that is related to emotions, self-esteem, insomnia, anger, relationship dynamics due to mental health and recovery and other issues that don't fit better in another forum would be examples of topics that might go there.

    If you have spiritual issues related to a mental health and recovery issue, please use the Recovery Related Spiritual Advice forum. This forum is designed to be like Christian Advice, only for recovery type of issues. Recovery being like a family in many ways, allows us to support one another together. May you be blessed today and each day.

  3. 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.
  4. 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. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

Why Are Christians Just as Sick as Non-Christians?

    JS: Once I brought some of my low sugar food to a retreat so my daughter and I, both gluten intolerant, could have something to eat. The food was gone before we got anything to eat. After that it was healthy food and it almost always gets eaten, though people still eat the high sugar stuff.

    This is true, 120 years until the flood.

    The latest mention of lifespan mirrors today's life expectancy.

    Psalm 90:9-10
    King James Version


    9 For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.

    10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

    Your body produces 80 percent of your cholesterol. Animal foods only contribute about 20 percent. Cholesterol medications (statins) reduce the amount of cholesterol produced by your liver. Your body needs lots of cholesterol, and the jury is still out on some of the research.

    Seventh Day Adventists living in Loma Linda, CA live ten years longer than others. Dan Buettner wrote about them and other communities with higher than average numbers of centenarians in his book, “The Blue Zones Solution.” Many Seventh Day Adventists (SDA) are vegan, vegetarian, or ate plant based with small amounts of fish, meat and dairy.

    To the OP. Why aren't Christians healthier? This old joke might reveal the reason.

    The fire and brimstone pastor of a small southern church launched into a sermon about the sins of the flesh with particular attention to that of alcohol. When he singled out for condemnation the long cherished local custom of moonshining one old congregant was heard to mutter, "He's quit preachin' and gone to meddlin'."

    Sad but true, OldWiseGuy.... Most preachers preach what the people WANT to hear....and people don't want to hear about what they shouldn't be or should be eating and drinking....so very little is said on that topic.

    I don't think most pastors are well schooled in health. However they can offer biblical advice on the subject. Health is so important that it should be a part of the edification of the church (as is practiced by SDA's and Mormons).

    Any amount of alcohol is bad for you, regardless of what the doctors say.
