Re: The Church in Fullerton Elders have announced a sexual predator's sin

Ohio, if Titus Chu was Lee's best student then what is that really saying?

I'll share what's undoubtedly going to be an unpopular view here on this forum.

The reason I came to these boards a...

Re: Open Letter - Dear Saints in the Lord's Recovery

I think or hope most people understand that. We tend to get a bit overly philosophical here from time to time.

Re: Open Letter - Dear Saints in the Lord's Recovery

It is and it isn't. It depends how you define the word "Lord".

In Old Testament times, the Jews were constantly being seduced by foreign gods. One example of this is when Queen Jezebel introduced...

Re: Open Letter - Dear Saints in the Lord's Recovery

I feel your pain, Awareness. I've seen the effects in the members that I come to know.

According to Isaiah 53, there wasn't anything impressive about Jesus that would draw people to him.

Re: Open Letter - Dear Saints in the Lord's Recovery

Separating "religion" from Christ is another thing hyper-spiritualists or mystics will do.

There's false religion (Judges 3:7) and then there's a "pure religion' (James 1:27) Christians should...

Re: Open Letter - Dear Saints in the Lord's Recovery

No need to apologize, Weighingin. It was actually fitting to my point.

However since Awareness openly acknowledged admiration for Neitzsche here, I thought I'd briefly address this.

Re: Open Letter - Dear Saints in the Lord's Recovery

So what you're really trying to say, ZNPaaneah, is that Igzy and I are both fools? Right?:D

The more fitting Proverb to summarize what I'm trying to say is Proverbs 14:12;

"There is a way that...

Re: Open Letter - Dear Saints in the Lord's Recovery

Peter took a bold and forceful stance against injustice. To Peter his actions in protecting Jesus from harm appeared to be righteous and just but because he was more concerned about the things of men...

Re: Open Letter - Dear Saints in the Lord's Recovery

I just wanted to encourage you guys and say that the Lord does hear all the cries from the injustices that have taken place in the Local Churches.

I know there are those that were greatly hurt by...

Re: On the FB page

That's what I assumed but at the same time needing God, needing salvation, needing His healing, needing Godly Christian fellowship for one's self, are things we should selfishly pursue. It's only the...

It was my hope that the "soul-life" thread would have helped make clear the point that there isn't anything inherently bad about the human soul. Our souls are who we uniquely are and it's the part of...

Re: On the FB page

We've all read the accounts in scripture of Christ casting legions of demons out of people making them of sound mind again. It's indisputable. If he can do that with demon possessed people, what type...

Hi Jo,

I'd like to say that I admire your courage in speaking out. I know it takes a lot to do something like this and I know it'll also encourage others by letting them know they're not alone in...

Re: I need a church life that isn't led astray!!!

I suppose the point of my last post was that those that come out of oppressive groups should take care not to deviate and fall into other extremes, as many are inclined to do, but to rightly apply...

Re: I need a church life that isn't led astray!!!

And there are those that feel the same way toward Local Church members. To make the point, a number of professing Christians have openly labeled the Local Churches a cult in the past and condemned...

Re: I need a church life that isn't led astray!!!

This is what I fear most for people coming out of groups like the Local Churches. What tends to happen is a culture of "absolute" servitude is instilled but steered in the wrong direction thereby...

Re: I need a church life that isn't led astray!!!

I understand that Mormon theology is out there, I don't argue with that. But to someone outside of the LC's, their theology can look the same way. It's all a matter of perspective.

Re: I need a church life that isn't led astray!!!

I'd agree that the Book of Mormon is over the top but the biblical charge you're referring to is the addition of special revelation to scripture found in Revelation 22:19 although I believe you may...

Re: I need a church life that isn't led astray!!!

It's curious to see Mormons on this list because as far as zeal to spread their movement and biblical knowledge, they would run circles around LC'ers. Same goes for JW's.

The Mormons have the...

Yes, it could be. The Lord could also be referring to the linen garments that are the righteous acts of the saints (Revelation 19:8) which of course is the righteousness of Christ and his act of...

Re: I need a church life that isn't led astray!!!

My take is this. The Lord said he would be sending us out into the world as sheep amongst wolves.

We're also commanded to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world.
