Re: STUDY: White Police Officers NOT more likely to Kill Minorities

First, everything must be looked at as both a whole and on a case-by-case basis. To only consider on a case-by-case basis ignores the total and attempts to stratify the whole in such a manner as to...

Re: What is the Church really?

The church is referred to in various places as the body of Christ, the assembly (paraphrased), the pillar and ground of the truth, and eventually, the bride of Christ (among other things). There is...

Re: How is the Virus Affecting You?

The virus has been "with us" for these few months now and does not seem to be going away. Someone elsewhere made mention of the start of a 2nd wave. But that is premature. This is still the first...

Re: Coronavirus Powergrab?

That's no riddle. It's pandemic. And now that another month has gone by and it has not just "gone away" like the Orange One predicted, but has gotten much worse. What else can I say?

There is no...

Re: Bone of My Bones & Flesh of My Flesh

I think that the problem is not really translation — unless we remain convinced that everything about the story of creation is literal, or that if metaphorical in any way, we need to milk each...

Re: Modalism

Every time this particular verse comes up, I feel a little like Inigo Montoya in The Princess Bride. "You keep mentioning that verse. I do not think it means what you think it means." (to paraphrase...

Re: Coronavirus Powergrab?

Not necessarily legit. Just human rather than bots. They have at least one reason to reopen the country but have nothing to say about any reason to not reopen the country. They only see economics....

Re: Modalism

The theological problem is not that they are accused of modalism, but that they do espouse a form of modalism.

Yet at the same time they declare that the three are co-eternal and co-equal.

And...

Re: Christ is the Body, "the Body-Christ"

I think you misunderstood what I was saying. The two passages might have a connection, but that connection does not make what they are saying the same thing.

Related? Maybe or even probably.

Re: Soul & Spirit - Same or Different?

One more comment. I have found that not needing to have everything answered or explained especially where it is not required for an understanding of other things has been liberating. I am free to...

Re: Soul & Spirit - Same or Different?

I went to public schools as well. And I had to learn some things much later in life.

One short comment: For the verses that mention something (as opposed to a feeling, etc.) that is called...

Re: Humor (keep it reasonably clean)

Scene cut from Back to the Future:

Doc Brown: Marty, there are a few rules to remember when setting the time machine.

Marty: Yeah. Like what?

Doc Brown: The first rule is, never set the...

Re: Quotes and Memes

And here the context is stated.

At this time, Saul was anointed under God's direction to be king. And David had also been anointed to be the next king. Both anointings were established by outward...

Re: Soul & Spirit - Same or Different?

Re: Soul & Spirit - Same or Different?

I never said that it was simply a turn of phrase. It has meaning or it wouldn't have been said. But whether it is simply the same as other declarations is not clear. Surely there is some...

Re: POLL: How do you generally view the LC?

D3

All the way back to the beginning (with Nee in China).

I will say that the scale is problematic. This "different Christ and difference gospel" theme tends to argue against even being...

Re: A Corona Virus Great Awakening?

First, the situation is not that unique. It seems that way to us because we have not seen this kind of thing during our lifetime. Yet there have been much worse events in the past. Just 100 years ago...

Re: Soul & Spirit - Same or Different?

SoG,

I recall there being at least one significant review of the writings of Nee (Lee hasn't really provided anything beyond what Nee wrote). It may have been on the Berean forum, so no longer...

Re: A Corona Virus Great Awakening?

I see three eras.

The first is the OT where God declared that he would punish Israel if they were disobedient. (Yes, he also punished Sodom, and threatened to do the same to Nineveh, among...

Re: QUESTION: If *Hopelessly* Stranded on an Inhabited Island . . .

Then you didn't say what you meant to say.

When you say "Preach and teach another gospel and another Jesus" you indicate that they teach something other than the Gospel. And if you get saved under...

Re: My Confused Adulthood

It's probably true, and the reason that at least some of the people going to the FTT (wherever) leave soon after. I only lasted 14 years. 20 years would be too much. So if it takes just 2 years to...

I understand. But if we put politics in, then there will be arguments over the content. Right now there is a plethora of Lysol injection humor and I'm sure that some will find it aggravating.
