Re: A Frustrated Mother

Frustrated mother,

From one mom of three to another, how far do you take your see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil stand? Do you pat your kids on the back and support them with your silence...

Re: JJ Testimony

This is encouraging, JJ. My elderly mom told me recently, 'you will just have to give up on me. I will never be converted.'

I am encouraged to pray. It's not over until it's over. I also...

Re: JJs Testimony

Thank you, JJ! How wonderful to hear how the Lord worked over you up until you made your choice. And how, at your declaration of faith, He came in. My experience was similar in the LC, faith in...

Re: Bible as the Absolute Authority

I didn't mean to imply all who submit to arranged marriages are foolish. Actually, I think it could open the door for the Lord to arrange blessing on a couple....and be a wonderful marriage. I...

Re: Bible as the Absolute Authority

Right. One needs two faces. One for condemning a thing, the second to practice said thing under a different 'banner'.

Re: The Bridge and Channel of God - The Early Lee

JJ, I really would like to read your introductory post, but I couldn't find it. Do you remember the title?

Re: Bible as the Absolute Authority

It seems like this issue boils down to an LC perspective and it, I think, is inaccurate. In the LC we were taught we had to exercise our spirit in order to join with the Holy Spirit, to mingle...

Re: Bible as the Absolute Authority

It would be funny except for the hundreds of times the Lord has spoken precisely to my exact situation from letting the word fall open at random and reading the first verse I see. I'm not knocking...

Re: Bible as the Absolute Authority

I do support the opening posters' comments. In the case of Lee, and his interpretation of scripture, I would discard it in favor of the plain word of God interpreted via the indwelling Spirit! And...

Re: Bible as the Absolute Authority

Is that a cult thing? As in, if they can get you to bow down to them in such a personal, intimate, life long commitment......to even marry someone you don't love for the church, then they have your...

Re: Bible as the Absolute Authority

Respectfully back to the opening post, and back to the topic of arranged marriages, where do we see precedent set for such activity in scripture? The putting together of young people by the behest...

Re: Bible as the Absolute Authority

What I could have said with more grace, is, that I believe our trust in scripture is the outward manifestation of our faith in Jesus the son of God. Just like baptism. It is a visible display of...

Re: Bible as the Absolute Authority

Brother StG, in love, and with appreciation for you as my brother in Christ, what the heck? This is contradicting within itself, and, has the LC taint of 'christendom' vs us who know something...

Re: They Actually Try to Defend the Way Ron Kangas Spoke About his Wife

The Local Church turns believers into ones who speak harshly, think cruelly, and are hardened in heart towards fellow saints in Christ our Lord. The only thing Rons' speaking was lacking was truth,...

Re: The Speciality, Generality, and Practicality of the Church Life

StoG, how about simply giving credit where credit is due? I am talking about the Lord, the word, and the Holy Spirit. You are not alone when you point to a teacher, speaker, or minister and say,...

Re: The Speciality, Generality, and Practicality of the Church Life

Amen amen He does not make mistakes. I'm still not sure what Mike is meaning, but the word about digging brass, while impossible to do with man, is possible if the Lord says so. My immediate take...

Yes, no problem, Trapped. All you have to do is mention Jesus the Savior in the presence of the right person (harboring the wrong demon) and you sometimes witness the switch flip. You are no...

Re: The Speciality, Generality, and Practicality of the Church Life

Mike,

Can you first go into or expound on the reference to digging brass? I googled the term and only found one verse combining digging with brass. Understanding it is an alloy, I don't...
