I was just wondering if anyone knows of other good Christian forums that they have used in the past. Would you DM me your suggestions. Thank you!

What purpose do you seek the forums for? That really help answers the question.

In my experience, "Christian" forums on generic websites are a terrible place for anyone to grow in their faith - you will encounter every false teaching and doctrine under the sun, and have no one you can really trust for any sort of wisdom and guidance.

Now, if you're interested in gaining a perspective of all the, uh, "diverse thought" out there (to put it politely), or want some practice in sharpening your debating skills or clarifying some of your positions such that they can be articulated to others, it's a different story.

On the other hand, if there's a specific ministry you follow that has an online presence, there may be some fruitful discussion there.

There seems to be plenty of false doctrine right here on this one also.

Absolutely - C-D (as a 'generic' site) is included in what I was talking about above as well.

If the "precepts and doctrines of men" and dogma is your concern C-D has plenty of people who do that. If you are concerned with following Christ's commands to "love God and each other" daily and repent when you don't . . . C-D has plenty of people who do that. If you are concerned with judging and condemning others for not believing as you do . . . C-D has plenty of people who do that also. If you actually think for yourself and try to have a personal relationship with God and not with a particular congregation or public group of people . . . C-D has plenty of people who do that too. In short, C-D is an excellent forum whatever you are seeking.

Given your question, I find it hard to believe you haven't found this one, given that the url is exactly "ChristianForums":

Christian Forums - Where Christian Community Meets Faith

Whether it's "good" or not is something only you can decide.
