Re: Politics and the Church

Another phrase is "crazy like a fox". I used to think what a buffoon for his excessive use of twitter.
I've come to think it's his way of sending a message to a certain person or certain persons,...

Re: Politics and the Church

Remember the Witness Lee quote "people change"?
Well yes people do change. Suppose he was a racist at one time, does that mean President Trump is a racist now and incapable of change?

Re: One Publication

In the 90's I was a twenty-something young adult. I recall thinking who has the time much less the money for all these books?

Re: Arranged Marriages and Divorce in LC

In my opinion state of non-LC marriages depends more on the relationship between husband and wife than where they meet for fellowship.
Whereas in the local churches the state of the marriage depends...

Re: False Narrative of Church History

Speaking of false narrative, I've been following the Russian Collusion investigation for weeks. I've done my share of reading and come away knowing this parallels the narrative from Fermentation of...

Re: Fake News aka Winston Smith

One person's opinion. I would say think critically as many of us have done here on this forum. Would we be here if we didn't?
As for Mueller, there's nothing of substance to be found. When the...

Re: Politics and the Church

Entire process has been politicized. If at any time Senator Feinstein cared about truth and justice, FBI would have had something to investigate back in July.
Did Kavanaugh do as alleged or didn't...

Re: The Worst Mouthful Ever

When one leaves the local churches, it's expected you leave like a gentleman. However the same behavior will not be afforded to you by those who remain.

Re: False Narrative of Church History

So many questions and so few answers.
Who did the accounting/bookkeeping in the 70's and 80's?
How would the Taipei office or any other ministry office outside the United States be held accountable...

Cover the Brothers?

In other words this teaching can be described as "cover the brothers". I ask how many generations of parents and children have suffered damage due to this perverted practice? How many?

Re: One Publication
