Is it alright to begin a sentence with 'for' in formal writing?

Does it depend on its meaning? For example, when it is a coordinating conjunction, can it begin a sentence?

I had a good example where I thought it was alright to use it, but I have forgotten it.

Any examples?

Thanks

It's a translation from a Koiné Greek, which had no punctuation. The sentence divisions were created by the translators to fit 2,000-year-old written practices in a foreign language into modern practice in English. Plus that particular translation is already 400 years old in English.

Nonetheless, it's a good example of beginning a sentence with 'For' (meaning because). I assume this can still be done today.

Are you referring to all of the hundreds of translations?
For Alan was playing in the school cricket match and was mightily proud of being chosen to play. 2. "Don't leave me, little boy" an old man said. . "No I will stay here." said Alan,and he sat . down beside him, for he felt sure that . someone would come that way soon 3. The boys gave Alan three loud cheers,as . only schoolboys can, for in some mysterious fashion they too had learned all . about his kind act. I have put three grammatical questions. I do not know how to "for" is used in that sentences? Please give me your answers. Thank you.

Sorry Park,

That is not an example of beginning a sentence with for as a coordinating conjunction.

For the love of god, you can start a sentence with the word "for".
