Truth

Here are a few remarks from Watchman Nee and what he believed (at least what he wrote) about "following the brothers" and "truth". We could contrast this also to “even if he (Lee) is wrong, he’s...

Re: A Frustrated Mother

Frustrated Mother,

Those of us who post on this website have also said “ENOUGH”!

If there is another way to stop the abusive behavior being perpetrated on God’s people at the hands of the Local...

Re: Bible as the Absolute Authority

I heard a similar story as a preacher joke. 1st opening "And Haman hanged himself..." 2nd opening "go and do thou likewise".
I think this was actually a George Whitington story.

Re: Bible as the Absolute Authority

What about Isaac and Rebekah? Gen. 24. Arranged by their fathers, “technically” not elders in the church, but likely the misused justification for arranged marriages today.

Re: Bible as the Absolute Authority

However, the leading of the Holy Spirit never conflicts with the written word.

Re: Taking Christ as our person? What's the meaning of person here?

More questions:
1) How do you “take Christ as your person”, say the words over and over?
2) How do you know when it’s “done”...when Christ is now “my person”?
3) How long does it last? Do you have...

Re: They Actually Try to Defend the Way Ron Kangas Spoke About his Wife

UntoHim,

There was no need to “twist” Ron Kangas’ words. The words came out of his mouth twisted.

He spoke in plain English. No need to insult anyone’s intelligence with pretense of some...

I would like to give a quick response to this statement from your OP regarding “slander” and contrast it to “truth.”

Who taught Ron K to speak this way? This kind of evil speaking is of the devil himself.



Everyone. Everyone who chooses to believe and practice such demonic evil.

Re: Wake-up Letter to Minoru

I remember Benson Phillips saying virtually the same words in the late 60’s. THE LATE 60’s!!! The words he used were “just you wait!” As a result we looked past the present, relied on our prideful...

Re: How do you experience the Cross?

I dunno STG. It appears to me that these verses point more to the workings of the Spirit; that is, in bearing the cross you allow the Spirit to do the work....it’s not something separate from the...

Re: How do you experience the Cross?

StG,

Can you first give scriptural “evidence” that Christians “experience the cross”? Of course, in the New Testament we are frequently told to “take up our cross” which indicates we have a cross...

Re: Co-workers In The Lord’s Recovery Declare Themselves as APOSTLES!

Re: Shepherding Words "From The Co-Workers In The Lord's Recovery"

To my observation the “Local Churches” that existed in the “early days” no longer exist. When the LSM rose to power, the churches, in effect, became franchises of the Living Stream Ministry. So, from...

Re: How is Christ building His Church?

Here’s another question: Do you believe He will build His church in any way other than the path he has already given? I.e.,
1. Believe in Him
2. Trust him
3. Obey his commands
4. Talk to him
5....

Re: "Church" is not in the Bible!

Benson Phillips said in Houston, early on:

If you are centered on Christ, the church will come out.
If you are centered on the church, nothing will come out.

I think he was right.

Pay Attention To What They Say "They Are Not"

I have come to believe “get out of your mind” is just a way of telling someone to “shut up”, only it sounds “spiritual”. That is generally the end result ... conversation over. Either that or they...
