Re: Politics and the Church

Let's see who cuts the first deal with the prosecutors and starts spilling the beans . . . .

Re: Bill Mallon's Passing

Excellent find ZNP.

I would like to hear from Drake how he would explain Lee's gross mistreatment of Bill Mallon.

Re: Bill Mallon's Passing

I remember my takeaway finding and reading brother Bill's letter as I departed the program: WL demands loyalty over righteousness, and those who treasure a good conscience before God will always be...

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

Jo S apparently you came on board during this dichotomy. I left as it was ramping up. After I studied Brethren history, I realized the situation was incureable. The only healthy recourse was to...

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

I saw the abuses and bully tactics on all levels -- national, regional, and local -- as I looked back on my 30 years of loyal service. I had heard endless messages about reconciliation, yet saw none...

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

Your question confuses me too. Go back and read my posts. There's quite a few.

What does "Lee 2.0" exactly mean? Unlike WL, TC never let his prodigal and degenerate son run his publishing...

I read this post thrice, and I'm not sure what do you mean, "Why is that?"

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

So true. And well said. I heard from both sides that I must "take a stand for the truth." But I loved brothers on both "sides." But don't let those "natural relationships" affect your decision. ...

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

The British Exclusive Brethren had developed "MOTA" architecture decades before Nee devoured their ecclesiastic writings. They didn't actually use the term "MOTA," but rather "Oracle" or "Our...

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

Why is it that we never thought through Nee's and Lee's mandate that ONLY an apostle can appoint elders? Ironically, it was not even Paul who appointed elders in their scheme, but Titus (1.5)

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

I would ask the OCOC supporters to define a "city."

There is no way that the description of "city" in the New Testament can match our contemporary definition. Look at NY "City." It's larger than...

Re: Is the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil, evil?

I have interpreted that in this way. Since a day to the Lord is a thousand years, no man has lived a full "God-day." Look at those from Adam to Noah: Adam 930, Seth 912, Enosh 905, Kenan 910,...

Re: Is the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil, evil?

W. Lee altered the Genesis garden story with the analogy of a child in the medicine chest. "The parents were far more concerned that their child was poisoned by the medicine, than that the child had...

Re: Forgiveness

Welcome flyonthewall to the forum,

The Bible's demands concerning apologies and forgiveness usually place the heavier responsibility on the offended party. "Forgive us our trespasses as we...

Re: Member of the church in Jounieh Lebanon

This always presented a dilemma to me. If Ephesus could have their lampstand removed because some (or all?) have lost their first love, then what about the rest of the churches, perhaps excluding...

Re: Soul-Life, Kundalini, and Watchman Nee

Yet not one person had the courage and conviction to do the right thing and stand up to the bully on behalf of that sister.

How could we get that way?

Re: Politics and the Church

Actually there were 5 Democratic candidates in 2016.

For 3 years they have been accusing Trump of "stealing" the election, but the facts of history clearly reveal that Hillary and the DNC colluded...

Re: Soul-Life, Kundalini, and Watchman Nee

These are strange teachings indeed about the LC, which I never knew nor heard, even after 3 decades of active service.

And they condemned the Republicans for having 17 candidates in 2016 . . .

Re: Politics and the Church

The Dems have only false accusations, and little to no crimes to investigate. That's why they have no teeth.

I doubt Trump is using his office to make money. If so, Mueller would have found it. ...

Re: Christ is the Body, "the Body-Christ"

I do like church history more than theology. I learn more. One time I was laid up sick for a few days and read Foxe's Book of Martyrs. I found it real hard to complain about petty things after...

Re: Christ is the Body, "the Body-Christ"

Huh? Judge you? Because I corrected Trotter's account?

All I ask is that you evaluate history without prejudice or partiality.

Initial perceptions are often inaccurate, misleading, or just...

Re: Christ is the Body, "the Body-Christ"

If Trotter is correct, then Darby should be doubly judged for heresy. First for condemning Newton, and subsequently Mueller, and secondly for teaching the same things as Newton.

Read what Newton...
