Re: Politics and the Church

Well, you said it well.

I was responding to each of specific points found in multiple posts, not trying to make some direct assault on any person.It was each point, individually, the point that...

Re: Politics and the Church

The last time I checked, the kingdom of God was not in the business of abortions. That is in the kingdom of the world.

While God may have used Israel to deal with the sins of the Canaanintes, most...

Re: Politics and the Church

You fail to note that I did not specifically argue that you or Ohio were anything. All of the things the two of you passed on are essentially found in the public media, mostly in...

Re: Politics and the Church

The whole premise that the conservative side (Republican) is God's and the liberal (Democrat) is of the devil is a tale spun by the kind of ignorant people who believe in America as a Christian...

Re: Politics and the Church

Actually, I did not attribute the quotes at all. You are the lame brain to jumped to make them into being about you.

All from the smartest man in the room.

Re: Politics and the Church

How much of the media seems to (or is) against him is really not a cause for lying. But for Trump, it makes him want to double-down and talk about how to simply shut them up.

As for the caravan,...

Re: Politics and the Church

Yes. The mode of releasing the information was a grandstand of the worst kind. But you mistake mode of release for veracity, or lack thereof.

All of the claims of lies you make are without merit....

Re: Politics and the Church

Probably best not to try to define the source of any of our positions.

I am a third generation Republican (don't have enough information to look beyond that). My Grandfather despised Roosevelt. I...

Re: Politics and the Church

The "mostly" was left out. His life does include the drinking and partying, along with the rather sexist behavior that some of his HS and college friends recalled. Excusable after enough years of...

Re: Politics and the Church

I'm beginning to conclude that the only smear campaign is being orchestrated by Trump. It is time to play "Apprentice" with him and declare "you're fired." One term. No more. Maybe less, though I...

Re: Politics and the Church

First, not picking on ZNP here. Just using this one comment to discuss. I see that he is in agreement on part of the following.

I agree that it should be a matter of finding the truth, not making...

Re: Politics and the Church

The presumption of innocence technically does not apply to nomination confirmations. The question is not whether the person should or should not be jailed, or even just put on parole. It is whether...

Your response is expected (from someone not necessarily you). Everything is black and white. There are the Conservatives and Liberals. Nothing in between. Polarization gone viral. Nobody can have...

Yes, that is exactly where we are. And there is a Kitchen Aid mixer whipping it to a frenzy . . . . the Tweeter-in-chief himself. The official Divider of the United States.

Re: Personally, I feel that LSM is a cult.

Cargo cults . . . . I always smile when you bring those up, awareness.

And there is at least a little of that at work in the LC.

But to deal with the topic of the thread, I have to chime in to...

Re: Partial Rapture

Whole lot of interesting stuff here. But it is even more interesting that the whole idea of a rapture (as taught in dispensational theology) has only been around for 200 years.

I fear that we...

Re: How do you know the Lord's leading?

You are too correct, Ohio. I was trying to ignore the bizarre workings within the LC. But in that environment, you always have to "fellowship with the brothers" or you are on the outside looking in....

Re: Attending Different Churches: Divisive attitudes

I guess you either live in Hole-in-the-Wall, Wyoming, or you ignore that you pass by numerous assemblies on the way to the one that you choose to join with. And for most of your tribe, they abandoned...

Re: How do you know the Lord's leading?

The answer may not really be so "spiritual" as some might think.

The answer may already be in front of you. It may simply be what you would rather do. If either choice is moral, righteous, not in...

Re: Outer Darkness?

Not sure what that is supposed to mean.

But if it suggests someone who is a reluctant dispensationalist or reticent Calvinist, then I might be one too.

Re: Let's talk about hermeneutics

How do destroy a thread on hermeneutics in 21 easy posts.

(Sorry zeek. You seem to get no more cooperation than I ever did. And you don't even have the LC-faithful trying to derail you.)

Took only 3 minutes on a rare revisit to find Evangelical declaring definitions without basis.

Re: Bipartite or Tripartite Nature of Man?

I tend more bipartite because I find the so-called distinctions between soul and spirit (which Nee, and then Lee, tried so hard to separate in a neat way) to be so overlapping, by definition, with...

Re: Whistleblower

Consensual? Do you really believe that? This kind of position would not be tolerated today in the world, and you expect the church to ignore it?

Harvey would be smiling at you.

Re: How Much To Throw Out?

I continue to occasionally post on threads like this my opinion on the whole Nee/Lee/LSM thing. Drop it all. If it is real, you will find it somewhere reliable.

I did not enter the LRC with no...
