Re: Do you think Christianity is degraded?

Yes, and that is elitism. Who was the most elite? Christ. Did He act out that part in any way whatsoever? No. (see Philippians 2:6)

Re: Do you think Christianity is degraded?

This is where this post you quoted goes off the rails. Since opening my heart to the rest of the body of Christ 22 years ago, I can testify that it is an absolute falsehood to say WL was the most...

Re: The enemy is smart but insane!

Another great brothers' breakfast this morning! In the open sharing a brother was conveying how when Moses' arms were held up, Joshua prevailed against the children of Amelek. And that this was a...

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

LOL! We're all "alcoholics" metaphorically speaking - that's why we need Jesus. That is why it's said we should purpose to know nothing amongst each other, except Christ and Him crucified!

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

I want to comment about whether or not you gather with the LCers occasionally. They are just another group of believers. Every gathering has its own things of the flesh that they cling to, and the LC...

Re: Do you think Christianity is degraded?

(I just saw this thread pop up, even though it had been an old one.) To answer the original question - of course Christianity is degraded! All of mankind (1st Adam), along with everything connected...

We can put it off because of His Victory!

We had awesome back & forth fellowship in the brothers' breakfast this morning. After some good sharing, a brother then made a summarizing statement by saying, "We can only put off the old man...

Re: Glad

And good ol' Adam (though dead) just keeps rollin' along! These brothers were looking to Christ, but rather some teaching. (and, as we've noted over & over, so too the so-called "ground of oneness"...

Re: Glad

Yeah, there are very few I hear who have all the picture, to be sure! The main thing is to take what there is of Christ from any message from ANY source!

For instance, I can now listen to...

Re: "God, if I could, I'd live without You . . ."

Also part of this morning's fellowship was that we don't have the goods in us to love God or others, or do ANY of the things the Bible says (think of the 10 Commandments or the so-called beatitudes)!...

"God, if I could, I'd live without You . . ."

""God, if I could, I'd live without You . . . but THANK YOU that You don't let me!!!"

That is what one brother shared at our fellowship breakfast this morning, and it was perhaps the most brutally...

Re: Glad

Oh, don't read too much into what I said, bro - just a lighthearted observation (hence the funny Spurgeon quote about smoking something to the glory of God) . . . nothing more. We're good.

Re: 3 parts of man

Yes. And I have marveled how the Spirit will just bring up in me songs. If I give it to Him and ask for a new song, He is faithful!

Here's a funny thought: Maybe bro Lee was a little like Fox News (a right-biased news network in the USA). Things were so skewed toward a low vision of the church (a "cheapened" added word itself)...

And that is, sadly, the state of things. The exclusivity thing is so easy to fall into, I think all the more the higher the vision we've seen - it happens to so, so many groups throughout our 2,000...

Dave was an elder of the local church in Berkeley when I was led there from...
