Re: Now's good

Probably operated by God. At first, I thought he was saying that mankind had no free will, but he clarifies that here:

There is no independently operating human self or nature in the New...

Re: Now's good

Brett Burrowes explains how the idea of an autonomous, independent sinful nature/self is possibly wrong:

Re: Deceptions on Campus

Only if you can point me to the body of Christ and say "there is the body" and show me that this is the body of Christ we are divided from, can you really say that. So which denomination or...

Re: Now's good

I think your example shows there is a difference between being stupid, and doing stupid things. In Christianity, I have heard something like this - "Even though you sin, I would not call you a...

Almost every race. I probably forgot about the Inuit people.

Re: Now's good

What is indicative of low intelligence is people's inability to synthesize all the facts and jump to conclusions about Lee's beliefs. For example, here, Lee clarifies his position, stating clearly...

Re: Deceptions on Campus

Two third's of the world's population is Asian, so this is an accurate representative sample of the world's demographic. This is a picture of equality as every race is fairly represented.

Re: Now's good

According to the PhD thesis which I quoted before, it seems that the early church personified sin as Satan, and Augustine separated the two, so Lee is technically more correct, if we consider the...

Re: Now's good

I think it is obvious to most what Lee meant. If it helps, just replace Satan with "the spirit of Satan" and it all makes sense. But still realizing that the "spirit of" is a person, not a thing or...

Re: Now's good

If Lee believed that the person (i.e. fallen angel) Satan literally indwelt all people at the same time (impossible as Satan is not omnipresent, and in Scripture we do see Satan entering and leaving...

Re: Now's good

I understood Lee to use the term Satan to describe the influence of Satan. Not literally meaning that Satan as the fallen angel indwelt every person.
I agree that Satan himself is not omnipresent....

Re: Bible Versus Science

When a body is cremated, there is about a handful of "dust" remaining, no more and no less.

This is irrefutable proof that God took a handful of dust and made man.

Ephesians 2:2 clearly shows Satan is a spirit who is at work inside people:

Re: in 1948 Watchman Nee changed his view

This is proof that Lee was consistent in upholding the teachings of Nee and should silence Freedom's speculation. It is also proof against Ohio's claims that Nee's writings on this matter have been...

Re: Kaung and Lee Lines in America - A History

Is that the case for the book "Further talks on the church life" that we are referencing here? If so, you should be able to provide clear proof i.e. a LSM version compared with a non-LSM version.

Re: True Christianity

I'm curious, how many of the Christian leaders spoke about the increase of Christ for the building up of the Church? Or was it mostly about what Christ did practically for them and their ministry.

Re: Deceptions on Campus

I read your whole post but only want to address one point about names, because it is most related to this thread topic.

Why can't "the local church in" be both a name and a descriptor?

Re: Deceptions on Campus

I think the ministry is focused on a particular aspect as all ministries are - even Paul, who said "Christ did not send me to baptize". So maybe Christ did not send Witness Lee to look after homeless...
