    Hey Everybody!

    Welcome, we're glad to have you here! Thanks for being a part of our community!
  3. Welcome, Angeleena, we're glad to have you here! I hope you'll have the chance to find other Christians your age! What are your hobbies?
  4. Hey there, and welcome! Glad to have you here! Let us know if there is any specific way that we can pray for you!
  5. Hey everyone, it's been a good while since I've posted an update so I figured I would give you one since there are some changes going on around this area. Software Upgrade This is going to make me sound bad, but did you know that the Christian Teen Forums software hasn't been updated on this site in 3 years? How embarrassing! This site has been very vulnerable to security issues and if you've noticed, there have been lots of spammers lately. This upgrade will hopefully help with that problem! I understand change can be hard because it's...different. It'll take some getting used to but I know you'll be there in no time! If you were around when we did our last major upgrade 3 years ago, there was a lot of confusion and frustrations but we made it! And we'll survive this upgrade too! There is still a lot of work going on behind the scenes to get this place back in full working order. Signatures are missing, some other features too... don't worry, we're working to rebuild all of that around the clock. It could take up to a week to complete this. I initially was going to keep the site closed until we got everything working but I felt that wasn't fair to you all. So thank you for your patience in the days to come! Staff Changes It is with much sadness that I have to announce that we have three staff members who will be stepping down from their roles here on the Christian Teen Forums. @T.O.W.R., @JoyfulFleur, and @kb5462 have each decided that they can no longer serve on the staff here due to a world outside the internet, other commitments and personal reasons. I want to thank them all publicly for their contributions over the years and it has truly been a blessing to work with you all. This site surely would have been lacking without them and they will each be missed. Will you please join me and thanking them for their service and wishing them the best? As you may know, this leaves this community with only three staff members.... myself, @Yoda, and @Nicene Nerd. I have the utmost confidence in this team that we'll be able to handle anything that comes our way while we figure out what we need to do with future staffing. Everybody please be nice so they don't have to work too hard! Thank you, everyone, for your continued involvement on this site. If you have any questions about anything, ask away. I'm here to answers any questions you have! Cary

    New Christian

    Hey there, and welcome! Wouldn't a new Christian be a Christian? So, no, there's going to be absolutely no discrimination on our part towards you. Let us know if you have any questions and we'll be glad to help. Welcome to the Christian Teen Forums and even more so, welcome to the family of God!

    15 Bible Verses About God's Love :)

    Thanks for sharing. These are great reminders of God's awesome love for us!
  8. I think leaving the Church definitely hinders growth in your relationship with Christ and others. Are you opposed to returning? Truth is, people at church can be mean sometimes. But we need to offer them forgiveness just as Christ has forgiven us. When we choose a life of reconciliation, we choose to honor God. Are you willing to forgive them? If so, let me know, and I'll give you some tips on what you need to do next. Everything lies in forgiveness, my friend.
  9. Hey there, and many apologies for the delay in a response! Let me ask you a few questions in response to your first question. Are you beyond a shadow of a doubt sure that you are a Christian? Have you started doing something (sin) that could possibly have effected that relationship negatively? The truth is, we're not always going to be "on fire" for Christ no matter how much you claim to love Jesus. We're sinful creatures at the end of the day and we make mistakes and are selfish! I want to challenge you to examine your life and see if there's anything in it that is getting in the way of your relationship! You can seek God's will for your life through prayer and seeking His Word. That's a question that a lot of people have... "what am I here on this earth for? What's my purpose?" It sounds like you might have a few ideas on where God wants to use you. Helping people/animals is something that can bring glory to His name. Pray specifically for God to reveal His plan to you and then look for opportunities. You can seek God's will through the Bible, praying, opportunities given to you, guidance from other Christians, and even the desires that God has placed within you! Trust me, helping people/animals in hard situations is not something that comes from the devil!
