Re: Erroneous teaching of Lee concerning natural affection

Both. the problem starts at leadership and then works it way down into breeding a culture of victimhood. My broad brush stroke was meant to be broad, it's a big picture.

I understand most members...

Re: Erroneous teaching of Lee concerning natural affection

I've witnessed extreme embitterment within the quarantined sect of the local churches. It's why when I see it here, after a while, it just gets old.

In psychology it's called PTED and two of the...

Re: Problems with Watchman Nee

Well maybe, if that's the case then it's my hope they have a GPS to help with navigation after getting off!

GPS = God's Perfect Son. Clever, right?:)

Re: Problems with Watchman Nee

Before someone gets upset with me, that wasn't to say that just because the lie that carries the momentum of the movement is evil, it doesn't mean all involved in the Recovery are bad themselves.

Re: Problems with Watchman Nee

I had this thought last night; I wonder what would have happened if Watchman Nee hadn't gone to prison and, instead of Witness Lee, Nee himself continued to head the movement that he began...

Re: Hope for all you church kids

This is assuming of course that they had their own faith to begin with.

From what I've seen many or I'd even say most generational LC members have lived their faith vicariously through parents...

Re: Erroneous teaching of Lee concerning natural affection

You left out the part where I said, "That how I feel". Feelings don't always constitute reality.

You know, in the last string of posts I've made, I've noticed how a few members confuse my lack of...

I only drink of the living water Ohio, and regular water. At this moment it's coffee.

Speaking of DCP, if Cleveland doesn't already have their own version of it, I elect Ohio as head director.

Last post here on this topic otherwise UntoHim will get upset with me.

Re: Problems with Watchman Nee

That's the guess that I had at first too until I recalled my time involved in Titus's Local Church. I remember the name of "Brother Lee" mentioned maybe a few times at most. I didn't even know who...

Thanks for that list ZNP. It's definitely a good place to start for anyone new to the forums if they'd like to catch up on Watchman Nee, BUT comparatively speaking the number of Lee and LSM...

Re: Erroneous teaching of Lee concerning natural affection

Going a bit off topic

As I was making my last comment tracing the teaching of natural affection back to Watchman Nee, I couldn't help to think why this forum mostly lacks criticism toward Watchman...

Re: Erroneous teaching of Lee concerning natural affection

It depends how you define "natural affection". I don't think the Local Church teaching is in agreement with the actual scriptural meaning. The Greek word for natural affection in 2 Tim 3:3 is...

Re: Definition of "The Lordīs Recovery"

ZNP, they didn't bow their knee to Baal. Those is the Lord's Recovery have no choice if they choose to stay. They have to bow their knee to Nee's vision. God's grace requires you at least resist...

Re: God doesn't care for right and wrong, only life

Trapped, it should also be noted that focusing on right and wrong, good and evil through the lens of self-righteousness can lead you down a very dark path. On the extreme end of that, think the...

Re: God doesn't care for right and wrong, only life

Jesus commanded us to judge righteously (John 7:24). What would the point of this scripture be if discerning right and wrong wasn't a concern to a Christian?

Re: Definition of "The Lordīs Recovery"

I too was wondering what happened to Evangelical. Him and I used to get into it quite a bit. Is it too wishful to think that maybe the Lord has been working on their hearts?

Re: God doesn't care for right and wrong, only life

Trapped, your hunch is right. The issue is you're looking at the wrong source to explain what you're seeing.

This belief isn't biblical at all meaning it's neither condoned nor condemned....

Re: I need a church life that isn't led astray!!!

It's a good question and a tough one to answer.

I've heard some say that those that only pray to Jesus do not know God our Father. It goes both ways...

Personally, I address our Father in...
