Re: My Testimony

I know a brother who grew up being forced to speak in the meetings, even as a young person. It left a lasting mark on him to have to stand up in a room of adults, stutter out something that sounded...

Re: I've been around the churchlife over 10 years now

Just as an addendum, having looked at the questions from the latest fireside chat.....

The questions actually show just how desperate the situation in the local churches is. "Desperate" is...

Re: The Trinity Thread (To be a merged thread)

I posted this on the modalism thread in Alt-Views, so this may get deleted, which is fine and understood, but to me, this goes a little way toward resolving the issue of Jesus being God but not being...

Re: I've been around the churchlife over 10 years now

Hi Unregistered,

Welcome! Thanks for joining us in the trash can. I moved a rotten banana peel over so there's a place for you to sit down.

Several decades in the church for me. They were...

Re: Quote from today's Witness/Watchman Wednesday

The frustrating thing about this teaching is that, when taken to task, they as always, can twist it around to make the task-taker seem crazy. On one hand, in the ministry they say something like...

There is what I think we can call some of this cancel culture in some of the Q&A videos (called Q&R by the LC) posted to youtube of co-workers answering.....sorry....."responding".....to questions...

Re: The Trinity Thread (To be a merged thread)

I just don't see how anyone can read Jesus's own words in John 8:17-18 and fail to come to the undeniable conclusion that Jesus is indeed NOT the Father.

Even in your own Law it is written that...

Re: Quote from today's Witness/Watchman Wednesday

Agreed. If he had just said "the church" there would be wiggle room to say Lee might have meant the true church on the earth, composed of all believers. But since he used the phrase "the church...

Thanks......boy was it an inner journey to get there. Truly never thought I'd be re-evaluating this teaching, that's for sure. If responding to BJB wasn't helping me sharpen my own understanding, I...

Re: Boxjobox on modalism

BJB, to say that "God died" is an oversimplification of what happened. The physical body that the Son of God, Jesus (who is God-kind) inhabited, died. But Jesus (who is God-kind) in His soul didn't...

Regarding reconnecting with the Lord, my advice is start reading.

The only verse I've come across so far since this post is in John 2.

Re: Boxjobox on modalism

There is no nefarious intent behind the translations I chose. The Greek word in the bolded portions is "Theos" which does not mean "Son" but means "God", so I went with the translations that were...

BJB, how do you interpret John 1:18?

Re: Boxjobox on modalism

I don't care if some Christians feel Satan is in our flesh. He is not.

Sin dwells in us. Satan doesn't.

Satan can influence our thoughts. But he doesn't know our thoughts.

Re: Boxjobox on modalism

Satan does not know our thoughts. He does not live in people, except maybe entering one at a time like Judas. He is a limited being. He is not omnipresent. The world is under his control because...

Re: Boxjobox on modalism

And if Jesus was not God, but was only a man, how could his death atone for all of mankind? If he was man then his death could only substitute for one other person's death. It seems to me that it's...

I understand, and hope it didn't seem like I was trying to get you to use non-scriptural terms. I was just trying to find a decent phraseology to better understand your POV.

Confessing Sins After Salvation?

What is the responsibility of a believer concerning sins they commit after salvation?
