Re: Andy Anderson on the "Overcomers"

No church teaches it but people live it and I have heard them say it. A preacher in fact who fit that description of living like the Devil.

I have attempted an answer to your every objection and...

Re: Andy Anderson on the "Overcomers"

I did not ignore it. I agree that Witness Lee taught the need for the growth in life. I think the testimony of scripture is clear on this. However, as to overcoming I am not so sure that it is only...

Re: Andy Anderson on the "Overcomers"

Hmm, maybe the "fill all things" part?

I don't know for sure. I'll have to think about it.

Re: Andy Anderson on the "Overcomers"

I saw this in the Baptist church too. Assured of eternal salvation many I knew lived like the Devil. I wasn't regenerated at the time but knew that something was not right about that. After...

Re: Andy Anderson on the "Overcomers"

"So we have the kingdom, we have Paradise, we have the Wedding Feast, and so forth. None of it presented clearly by Mssrs. Nee & Lee."

To my observation, aron, Mssrs Witness Lee and Watchman Nee...

Re: Andy Anderson on the "Overcomers"

Paradise is the good part (so to speak) of Hades, the abode of the dead. There is of course a not so pleasant part as I stated already. In that sense every place and all of Hades is part of the...

Re: Andy Anderson on the "Overcomers"

I don't agree with the teaching of Purgatory so that can't be true.

Re: Andy Anderson on the "Overcomers"

Personally, it makes a lot of sense to me because it ties many loose ends and closes many gaps that those of the Calvinist and Arminian persuasion have never agreed on. Both have seen truths but the...

Re: Andy Anderson on the "Overcomers"

The Lord's answer is universally considered a positive affirmation of the thief's request,

Only if you equate the kingdom to Paradise. I see no scriptural basis for such a conclusion, nor for the...

Re: Andy Anderson on the "Overcomers"

UntoHim,

We agree that this thief was not an overcomer and we agree that he was with the Lord in the abode of the dead people of God, a place called Paradise, the place visited by Christ after His...

Re: Andy Anderson on the "Overcomers"

I am assuming that if the thief's request had been granted the Lord would have not made the distinction because Paradise is not the Kingdom. Rather He would have affirmed the thief's dying request. ...

Re: Andy Anderson on the "Overcomers"

That is speculation. He died right there on the cross.

If your question is who is qualified for a reward that is up to the Lord. It depends on their circumstances and His righteous assessment. Of...

Re: Andy Anderson on the "Overcomers"

Almost. In the case of the thief on the cross, definitely.

I say almost because it depends, for instance if they died by being martyred. Many believers died after first becoming believers through...

Re: Andy Anderson on the "Overcomers"

He didn't.

However, though the Lord did not grant the thief his request for the Kingdom, He did promise him the portion of every believer (Paradise)

Re: Andy Anderson on the "Overcomers"

Igzy,

Witness Lee addressed the above scenario in blue in the teaching of the thief on the cross contrasting the thief's request (the Kingdom) with His promise (Paradise).

Re: Andy Anderson on the "Overcomers"

"- Witness Lee taught that "raptured and martyred" folks got the thousand year "Wedding Feast" with the Lord. The rest, per John's "Revelation", were not raised until the thousand years were over....

Re: Andy Anderson on the "Overcomers"

Hi UntoHim,

Witness Lee taught very much about the inner life and following the leading of the Spirit. My takeaway from that aspect was this: That each believer should learn to follow the Lord in...
