Re: How do you know the Lord's leading?

For those of us who have had such experiences it is hard to stop believing. "We beheld his glory while we were with him on the holy mountain". The younger ones who, absent the contrived "experiences...

Re: How do you know the Lord's leading?

Not to take anything away from Igzy's post which is probably completely true on several levels, but for me the "you" of the above sentences can only be fulfilled by Christ alone. Not Igzy or Trapped...

Re: How do you know the Lord's leading?

"Give me understanding that I may live" ~Psa 119:144(b)

We're nothing if not rational creatures, so asking what God wants may be aided by knowing what God doesn't want. We fumble our way toward...

Re: Greetings from an LC member!

Thank you Trusting for the introduction and the topic. I think Romans 15 is worth quoting in depth. I've bolded the part that Witness Lee quoted, plus sections that provide necessary context to what...

Re: Are All Christian Groups Spiritual Fornicators?

In the genesis of this movement one should appreciate the degree of anti-Western sentiment behind it. Both Nee and Lee's parents were Christian and were persecuted. Nee's 'local ground' proposal,...

Re: Christ is the Body, "the Body-Christ"

Sons to Glory,

I apologize if my dismissals of your proposals have been too curt, even denunciations. Antagonism has never suited me well. If my responses have seemed adversarial I apologize.

I...

Re: Christ is the Body, "the Body-Christ"

The problem with this phrase is that those who use it (not the NT writers but the followers) may or may not be "in Christ", and the using doesn't make the reality. Those who say "we are the church"...

Re: False Prophets = Double minded man

Yes, I agree. Add Dong Yu Lan, who when pressed on his finances (his children got the contracts at Estancia Arvore Da Vida) got furious. His underlings told the questioner that this was a "black...

Re: What is the law concerning owning intellectual property

That was the good ole' days for the LSM. They had the only printing press in town, and could publish what they wanted and destroy the rest. The very contents of reality itself were what they said it...

Re: Christ is the Body, "the Body-Christ"

My analogy is that saying you love God but disrespect His children is like saying you respect Joe Smith down the street but you despise his wife, his parents, his cousins, his friends, his kids and...

Re: Report from Mainland China

I wonder how many in China see issues with the ministry of Lee - either it doesn't match Nee, or it is contradictory, or it doesn't square with Christian teaching. I recall one psalm saying the he...

Re: Christ is the Body, "the Body-Christ"

My thought is, if we look at Jesus, then we are the church. If we look at the church, we are either in, or perilously close to ruin. It's the equivalent to Peter looking down as he walked toward...

Re: Are All Christian Groups Spiritual Fornicators?

Kevin, very nice article. I myself can't write such well-constructed arguments, because my attention span is too short probably, but I welcome others. Thanks for making the effort.

1. I agree that...

Re: Christ is the Body, "the Body-Christ"

The title does not use scripture but logic. The Body has a life, and a Head, and a Person, all of which are Christ. Ergo, the Body is Christ.

So I will use logic to refute it. The Body has many...

Re: Christ is the Body, "the Body-Christ"

When the disciples gathered to decide "the feeling in the Body" it was in mutuality. There was "much discussion", in Acts 15:7; yes there was divergence of opinion (some of the church were believing...

Re: Another Guru

The Guru is allowed Charisma, even trades in it, but brooks no peers, who'd be deemed "ambitious" and "rebellious" and so forth. But when the Guru's gone where's the person that holds it all...

Re: Guru Papers

John 6:14 After the people saw the sign Jesus performed, they began to say, "Surely this is the Prophet who is to come into the world."

Re: Guru Papers

Yes, and I doubt a definitive answer is easily found. But I’ll share a few impressions. One theme in the gospels was Roman occupation (following that of Assyrian/Babylonian/Persian/Greek) and a...

Re: Another Guru

I think it's some degree of the nature of being a Guru, or Deputy God as LC called it, that only one person in the room can exhibit charisma, and the rest must devote themselves to promoting the...

Re: Latter Rain, Kingdom Now, & the Lord's Recovery

There is a reason I brought up the subject of signs. Jesus' resurrection from the dead was the sign from God that his ministry was fully validated and now he is in glory. If one believes into the...

Re: Latter Rain, Kingdom Now, & the Lord's Recovery

This is probably a crucial point to consider with the New Apostles movement, which arguably includes the LC. "Thy reign come: Thy will come to pass, as in heaven also on the earth." ~Matt 6:10 YLT

Re: Latter Rain, Kingdom Now, & the Lord's Recovery

In John 14 Jesus said, "The ruler of this world is coming, and in me he has nothing." If Jesus calls Satan the ruler of this world, who are we to argue?

I was considering the prayer where Jesus...

Re: Report from Mainland China

Witness Lee told us that he dropped his culture in the ocean, and left it behind, when he moved from China to the USA. Either he was lying to us or he was self-deluded, because his culture had a...
