• 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.

    I posted this a few years ago. Elisabeth Elliot once use it as the format for one of her radio programs. Few Christians pay much attention to the key points here. Your Child and Your TV | Back to the Word
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    We did away with TV 25 years ago and have never looked back. Once the world lost its grip on us through the news and TV shows, we learned to be free in Christ, and content within ourselves through Him.

    Working in the garden or hiking and enjoying God's beautiful Creation, praising God with Christian music, or reading His word instead.

    All our children made the choice to serve and love Jesus when they grew up. Mind you, those who married did choose to have a TV back in their family life.

    Not sure how they feel not having TV for much of their youth, they never complained about not having a TV when they were kids, even though when they were very young we still had one. We moved to a 15 acre block and did away with the TV then, the kids used to play outside, on the block, most of the time, so they did not miss TV much at all.

    Some anti-Christian views are sprinkled in shows including cartoons. Without any connection, the comment was - "do you believe this or some Bible story?" Then they continued with the storyline.

    On another cartoon, without speaking,, the figure built an ark. With heavy rain, it sank, and they died.
