Re: Is this a perverted word?

Anything that distorts from that view at the very least has the appearance of evil. It has the appearance of denying the Lord who redeemed us.

The one trumpet, the one publication, the idea that...

Re: Is this a perverted word?

For this critique of Witness Lee's practice and teaching to be a fulfillment of Acts 20:30 requires that John So, Bill Mallon and John Ingalls spoke these things to draw away disciples after...

Is this a perverted word?

I searched LSM to find references to Bill Mallon.

An article entitled “Being Realistic” was published in a periodical entitled The Word and the Testimony. The author of this article is John So,...

Re: Bill Mallon's Passing

Compare what you have just shared with this:

Re: Bill Mallon's Passing

That letter is an amazing window into what it was actually like and the stress elders and leading ones were under. When you read that letter you are not impressed with the love for all the saints,...

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

Going back to the question -- "one Church -- One City -- Biblical?"

The context of course is the doctrine that WN and WL taught in the LC. I would say it is Biblical. Jesus said that when you...

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

Not from where I stood. After the Max rebellion in 78 it was clear to us in Houton that Benson Phillips was the big winner. Shortly thereafter Houston became an arm of LSM, with printing taking...

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

I see these as two distinct and separate questions.

The Blendeds laid out their case, according to scripture, for excommunicating Titus. I felt that case could be viewed, analyzed and judged...

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

I never heard WL refer to himself as a MOTA and I heard him rebuke others when they said it. However, you knew that if WL really wanted to put a stop to people saying it he would have.

Rather the...

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

The solution to this problem was resolved at the time of Moses. He took rods from representatives of the 12 tribes and Aaron's rod budded. That is how they knew that God had chosen him. Likewise,...

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

Yes, it creates hysterical problems.

1. Suppose one apostle appointed elders in Brooklyn and another apostle appointed elders in Manhattan. What happens when they both become one city?

2. ...

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

There is a simple solution -- every Christian who receives the 7 ones in Ephesians is part of the one church in the city. If you attend a meeting in the city that should be the only criteria to...

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

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

The notion of a computer simulation is simply an example that we can all understand, all experience, to help explain how we could have an eternal soul inside of a mortal body, how once this body dies...

Yes, you shall know them by their fruit. What is the fruit of this doctrine? Oneness with all believers in the city? No, definitely not. Instead the fruit is a judgmental attitude that every...

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

If you got it you'd realize that what I am saying is the same thing that all fundamental Christians have been teaching.

1. The soul is eternal.

2. The body is mortal.

The only reason...

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

Why is a computer simulation any less real? Again, I refer to the movie about Sully, the simulation is not of any use if it is not real. The difference is that they can crash the plane into the...

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

Yes, it is a bizarre derivative of Nee's teaching that puts a city council above the church elders. If Manhattan and Brooklyn decide to join and become one city then the churches in Manhattan and...

Re: One Church - One City - Biblical?

The interpretation of the "one church one city" as all the people in a single meeting hall is absurd and has no Biblical support. The church in Taipei had 26 meeting halls when I was there, so a...

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

"Anthropomorphizing God" is just another way of saying that Jesus has come in the flesh. If that is your issue it is a major one.

Re: 6 Reasons Why “Touch Not the Anointed” Verses Are Not for Pastors

The relevant NT verses as far as I can see are:

1. Do not receive an accusation against an elder except by 2 or 3 witnesses.

Then you contend the TOTKOGAE was evil. I disagree. I contend it was a tree good for food that makes us wise, like God.
