Re: Discernment of spirits

Witness Lee built his empire by playing on the feelings of others.

Above all, remember that what you read on this forum is the opinion or interpretation of others. Don't rely on someone who speaks...

Re: Discernment of spirits

1 John 2:20 (NIV)
20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth.

I don't know what term to use, but "gut feeling" isn't wrong. Another expression is "you know what...

Re: Blending

I don’t recall an “official” leadership group until after he was gone, and they wouldn’t be specific about who was a member of the group. That could be just me.

Re: Blending

The origin of the use of the term might be interesting. Of course, the word "blended" was not used until after Witness Lee's death in 1997 when the big question was "who's in charge"? The answer...

Re: Judge not that ye be not judged...

Not here. Open another topic.

Or, on 9/6/2016 you started a topic on this forum “Nee’s Local Church”. You could start there.

Re: Judge not that ye be not judged...

As usual, I was not speaking to the Bible itself, but your INTERPRETATION of the Bible. Witness Lee's entire ministry is based on his INTERPRETATION of the Bible.

Of course, all we have is our...

Re: Judge not that ye be not judged...

Uh. Yeah. We don't follow Watchman Nee or Witness Lee anymore. Maybe you missed that. We fact check everyone's ministry with the Bible as the standard. We are particularly put off by hypocrisy.

NO. The topic is "Judge not that ye be not judged." You are playing evasive word games in an attempt to deflect the obvious hypocrisy of Lee's name-calling: poor, poor Christianity; poor degraded...

Be careful who you call names. With the same judgment you judge, you are judged.

Re: Judge not that ye be not judged...

My context is that judgment is based on guilt or innocence. Then comes punishment or being released or set free.



I don't know that Christianity has judged the LC to the extent that the...

Thanks Aron...seems that the lights came on there. You are forgiven. And, you're right. We all need healing.

We also need to heed the warning to "judge not" since, according to the verse, we are...

Re: Judge not that ye be not judged...

The LC cut themselves off with the curse, or, did Lee's judgmental spirit spoken toward others came back upon him "with the same judgment (he) pronounced"? It seems that judgment and "curse" may be...

"Degraded Christianity"
"moo-cows"

To what extent, if any, has "the ministry" of Witness Lee heaped judgment upon itself? Upon the Local Churches? Has the Local Church...

Re: How do you know the Lord's leading?

Trapped,

OBW's posts are gold. Ohio iced it. "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free."

It sounds like seeing a counselor might help you, too.

Re: How do you know the Lord's leading?

Hi Trapped,

What do you “want” to do? If you want to take a trip, for example, maybe He wants to take that trip.
