Quote from: Hisgirl on August 05, 2008, 07:50:02 pmIt really was fun back then. Sumo...a bunch of us spent the better part of four years at CF. That's a long time, I suppose. The first couple of years it was great, then like a bunch of brothers and sisters on vacation driving across country in the sweaty back seat of a station wagon, we began to find ourselves scrapping and fighting and getting on one another's nerves. I guess everything has a season. CF has been wonderful for me as I'm made some amazing christian friends....many of whom have visited...Sue, Robert, Lael. Lots of ministry has been done too. However, for me, the main season has passed and though I peek in and occassionally post, I won't be returning in full participation like I once did. I think I got just under 5000 posts.
Quote from: AudioArtist on August 05, 2008, 07:04:41 amHello! I've been very stupid and wasted days on some 'charismatic' forum. I don't know it happened - I just got addicted, and did have good motives initially; to learn, to help out, to share. Well, maybe it wasn't a waste, because one or two people were blessed by my posts, but I certainly wasn't blessed by the experience! It is my suspicion that many forums are charismatic in all but name. If forum members did move in the gifts of the Spirit, I think there would be much more of a focus on the wonderful things God is doing, because when He moves through you, it is far more exciting than some silly con-man sprouting prosperity gospel baloney! Seriously, I know there is a need to expose false teaching, but some places and some posters focus EXCLUSIVELY on Satan's ability to deceive and nothing is said at all of the goodness of God... 90% of posts at that place were about false revival this, false revival that, false manifestations, how false Todd Bentley is.... Seriously, if you could pray for me I'd appreciate it. I know I've been through much worse on the outside, but spending fruitless hours on that forum really did something bad to something precious God was beginning in me. It was my fault for doing it, but now it's done, the effects are there.
Quote from: DianeL on August 10, 2008, 03:58:45 pmThank you for the warm greetings Hi MissConStru and Pete, Sharonl As for an up and coming forum - I love being part of Breaker Teams and I believe this is one of them. Sharonl, your comment of "You hear people say that the enemy will never point you to Jesus - well I learned if the enemy can make you believe in the wrong things - he will teach about Jesus - but there will always be an uneasyness in your spirit until you come about face and see what is really going on." really struck a cord with me, I hope you don't mind if I quote it occassionally IRL.
