Re: Witness Lee's church puts women's virginity above anything

Not only, but it's very misleading. One of this forum's members had a testimony included in FPR. Said his testimonies were copied and pasted from different dates giving the appearance of a fluid...

Re: Does "Baptist" Mean to a Baptist What "Recovery" Means..

Forgiveness in the local churches is like a minefield. Forgiveness is an individual matter and not a corporate matter. From brother to brother and from sister to sister there may be forgiveness to...

Re: Witness Lee's church puts women's virginity above anything

When I read FPR, it was just the opposite. The books content went against every fiber of my being. Of course when you have only one side of the story to rely on, how do you rebuff such a claim? All I...

Re: An Unknown Follower Of Jesus

Only ones credited in the hymnal are ones that are copyrighted. Hymns attributed to Witness Lee, it could be really his or it could be ones written by someone else, but Lee's taking the credit for it.

Re: How the LCM Affects Personality

Their feeling may very well be based on a rumor rather than facts. Those rumors become their feeling on which the fellowship flows from. Facts obfuscate their understanding.

What If?

Underline and bolding my emphasis.
Trapped, it could be when "responsible brothers" use the phrase fellowship you might as well reinsert with the word feeling or opinion. That's what it amounts to....

Re: How the LCM Affects Personality

When I was a single brother I had heard roughly the same thing in regard to marriage. "You remain single until you're ready for marriage."

Re: Do you think that highest truth of Witnesse Lee can satisfy your hunger

Same can be said about the local churches. That it can leave someone unfulfilled. I've visited Catholic churches and I found it equally unfulfilling.
Result is to meet with an assembly where one...

Re: How the LCM Affects Personality

I was told something quite different. When it came to college and prospective careers, "it should be practical for the church-life".
Could certainly pray over which school to attend. What if the...

Re: How the LCM Affects Personality

This can all be related to "submission and authority". Those older than you, submit. Those older than you even if they're wrong they're still right. This behavior translates into the workplace where...

Re: Poor, poor Christianity...

Poor poor Christianity. Those of us who were raised in the local churches may very well regard as nothing more than a catch phrase. When the local church is your only church experience, there's...

Re: Kaung and Lee Lines in America - A History

Agreed JJ. Though I will say pre-1986 the local churches did a better job of receiving visitors. At least that was my experience in S.B., CA. Whether a Lord's Day meeting or Young People's meeting,...

Re: Question of salvation and reconciliation.

That's all it can be called is teaching. It's no practice. Just as you say Ohio, history tells us otherwise.
Obviously reconciliation is a concept and not a spiritual responsibility.
The track...

What exactly is that ground of the church Nee taught versus what Lee taught versus what Living Stream is propagating?

Re: Kaung and Lee Lines in America - A History

Same can be said of Nee's other co-workers who left China. They're never mentioned in LC. It may very well be Lee was alone in pushing the ground of locality in the manner he did.

Re: in 1948 Watchman Nee changed his view

There may be more, but at the forefront there's Toronto and Vancouver in Canada and Accra in Ghana. Then there's ones with absolute split from LSM fellowship in Rosemead, CA and Moses Lake, WA....

Re: in 1948 Watchman Nee changed his view

I tend to hold the view Lee influenced Nee's change in 1948. Those who disagree with my view, that's okay.

Re: Kaung and Lee Lines in America - A History

I read this book in 1996. It touched my conscience to see our teachings doesn't match our practices.

Re: Relationships/Courting

That may be. "Brothers here and there" tend to be ones functioning in some responsible capacity for any given locality. It becomes a product of peer pressure for everyone else.

Re: Relationships/Courting

Re: Relationships/Courting

Somethings Witness Lee did or did not do, I think brothers took that and became legalistic with those practices even if it's non-essential to our faith or plain not even scriptural. (For example...
