» Matthew 6:5-13
And then, when you pray, donít be like the play-actors. They love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at street-corners so that people may see them at it. Believe me, they have had all the reward they are going to get. But when you pray, go into your own room, shut your door and pray to your Father privately. Your Father who sees all private things will reward you. And when you pray donít rattle off long prayers like the pagans who think they will be heard because they use so many words. Donít be like them. After all, God, who is your Father, knows your needs before you ask him. Pray then like this: "Our Heavenly Father, may your name be honoured; May your kingdom come, and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day the bread we need, Forgive us what we owe to you, as we have also forgiven those who owe anything to us. Keep us clear of temptation, and save us from evil".
J.B. Phillips New Testament

Speaking the Truth in Love

The subtitle, "A True Acount of Event & Concerns Related to the Local Churches 1987-1989" alerts the astute reader about an alternative, "official" account of these same events. John Ingalls carefully documents the lengths to which he, and other "concerned brothers", went seeking to rectify the situation. However, John and others were "side-swiped" by an abrupt change in tactics which saw them as "conspirators" and "rebellious ones", accused of being in league with the Devil, and "speaking perverted things". A litany of accusation appeared in the book "Fermentation of the Present Rebellion" published by the Living Stream Ministry (1990) under Witness Lee's name and freely distributed through LSM's distribution network. Meanwhile Maoist-style denunciation meetings attacked John Ingalls & Co during LSM's regular training - sessions expounding the Scripture - a combination which ought to be an oxymoron for any "Christian ministry".

» Watchman Wednesday
There is no lover of the Lord who does not cry. We should ache for sinners to the point of weeping for them. We should weep because Godís glory is challenged, and we should weep in anguish that the enemy is not yet boundÖ.All those whose hearts are in the Lordís work surely weep. Jeremiah was a prophet who was greatly used by the Lord. He was such because of his tears. He was anxious and felt responsible for Godís children, and he wept for them day and night.

Watchman Nee
(CWWN, vol. 19, p. 494)
