Re: LordsRecovery.Org Exposing the Christian Cult of Witness Lee's Local Ch

Jesus told them repeatedly, "Believe because of the works". There should be some issue. ~John 10:25; 37-38; 14:9-11

In the LC "grace on steroids" programme, all you had to do was come to meetings,...

Re: Folk Religion

Regarding the anti-intellectual bias in (folk) religion: I'm already on the backside of any reasonable discussion, having accepted several unprovable positions as though they were fact.

Re: Truth

Here's a website with an essay by Ron Kangas, on the subject of deification.

Becoming God in a limited sense

Not that you need my seal of approval, but good job. And "deconstructing" is a good word for the title. The whole thing is a construction, that needs to be worked down to its root. Because it's all...

Re: The price of being exclusive in lc

I heard someone teach that there should be no "bridges" between the LC and Christianity. That is "ecumenism" and solidifies divisions, rather than heal them.

But then they're taught to "blend" and...

Re: Quotes and Quips

Yes, that's what "walk in the spirit" got reduced to in the LC. They had all the books, all the outlines. But when it got boiled down, it was "turn to your spirit" which meant "open your mouth and...

Re: Guilt is eating at me like a starving rat

This kind of post is important to the discussion as it shows the dilemma people are in, trying to dis-entangled from the web that's the LC. It's a social web, family and friends, occasionally a...

Re: "THEY CALLED IT THE LAW OF MOSES."

Psalm 119:112 "I incline my heart to perform your statutes forever, to the end" (ESV). Jesus spoke very similar in John's gospel, chapters 14 through 16. Jesus came at the Father's command, the...

Re: Finding Biblical Context For Women 'Are More Easily Deceived'

Curious, great post. Many were encouraged to see Jo and Greg Casteel stand up. It is not wrong to seek rightness. "Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His rightousness, and everything else will be...

Re: "THEY CALLED IT THE LAW OF MOSES."

Here's the thing with Moses. Jesus said, "Moses wrote about me". ~John 5:46 He didn't say, "Moses wrote about me, then Paul, then a lineage of great teachers, all of whom see God and get direct...

Re: shepherdingwords.com

DCP does have a problem if members begin to see these recurring issues and common patterns. Imagine if a 30-something young mother, grew up in the LC, went to the FTTA, gave her life to the LC...

Re: Quotes and Quips

WL would often say that the Bible revelation was "simply this" or "simply that", which has some appeal, perhaps even utility. But the prime effect was to pare away other thoughts, groups, ministers....

Re: "THEY CALLED IT THE LAW OF MOSES."

To rephrase my earlier point, who exactly are they trying to fool here, except people who are already fooled and want to stay that way? Do they really think that the mass of people who read Don...

Re: shepherdingwords.com

It's sort of like a firewall, to prevent the curiosity to spread further. For example, they present "Facts concerning Daystar Motor Homes", apparently hoping this will end someone's quest to learn...

Re: shepherdingwords.com

Actually Mormonism went through something like this a few years ago. Similar to the Jo Casteel FB letter, someone wrote a document called "The CES Letter" which stated concerns and questions to their...

Re: LordsRecovery.Org Exposing the Christian Cult of Witness Lee's Local Ch

A point worth noting in the "us vs them" dynamic as often played out: in order to define "them" in this dynamic, the other party becomes a caricature. Here, one's presented with something called...

Great video.



First, is there God? Does God exist? That's a personal decision in the path of truth. Perhaps like the "quantum entanglement" dilemma... something that can be inferred, and offers...

Re: Finding Biblical Context For Women 'Are More Easily Deceived'

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

I agree with your point. WL couldn't get the Psalms to deliver value to his "Processed God" metric so he essentially dismissed them. He's not the first Protestant or post-Protestant to do so, but the...
