Re: The Recovery of The Local Churches in Vietnam

What is great is that you recognised your own pride and hypocracy. It is the stumbling block for all humanity, for all time. And you've identified it and seperated yourselves from it, and identified...

Re: Confessing Sins After Salvation?

I just want to say here, that in reading WL's commentary on Jesus' response to Mary and Martha, at Lazarus' death, and his commentary on Joseph and his response to his brothers on their visits to...

Re: Quote from today's Witness/Watchman Wednesday

Re: Quote from today's Witness/Watchman Wednesday

What dies it even mean, that we are to 'offer Christ to God' ? WL says that twice in the short quote offered, but I've never heard that idea before. It seems nonsensical, maybe someone has an...

Re: Quote from today's Witness/Watchman Wednesday

Re: It's about life

Any deception to be effective, needs to come alongside and parallel a truth then take that truth into an opposite direction. That is how deception works, it has to be clever or it wouldn't work on...

Re: YouTube Channel Discusses the Local Church
