Re: How Much To Throw Out?

You are so right about older saints filtering out the nonsense. This doesn't apply to just older saints, but many of the younger ones as well. I have a hard time believing that every saint actually...

Re: How Much To Throw Out?

I've come to realized that only way I would be able to leave the LC is by moving to a city where there isn't one.

For me it is because I grew up in the LC. All my friends, family, network,...

Re: WWBLD - What Would Brother Lee Do? LSM's Modus Operandi - TOMES

I know you guys won't agree with this. Too be fair, I don't think the Blendeds' are saying they have to give an account to Lee (instead of to God) when they die. I listened to the excerpt. The...

Re: Post-Recovery: A Testimony

I look forward to your "how-to" book for LSMers. I have been wanting a way out for years, but the Lord has not yet led me out.

I also look forward to reading your scholarly papers on Leeism....

Re: "Early Nee" vs. "Later Nee"

So true! Regretfully, that was me. Now that I have kids, how do I help them so that they don't have this kind of attitude? Or at least to a lesser extent? Any suggestions welcome!

Re: The Asian mind and the Western mind

It is interesting that the LCs propers in places like Russia, Mexico, and major countries in Asia, but NOT the US and Europe. This tells you something about the culture of the LC, perhaps it is not...

Re: The Asian mind and the Western mind

Reading this gave me goosebumps. In the past, multiple 'new ones' have told me that the Local Church reminds them of communist dictatorship. These are people who know NOTHING about the LC. They visit...

Re: The LC and the internet

The entire RC/LSM organization reminds me of this in China. I am sure there are many more similar organizations out there, such as the Mormons. No...

Early vs Modern Local Church Traditions/Rule

The Local Church has a lot of traditions and rules. Most of the rules are unsaid (ie. you will not find them written anywhere, but are practiced). Here are my observations. I have only listed a few...

Re: A Public Service Announcement

Yep, the 7-gatherings (trainings/conferences) has become a major social event for most; though most will not admit that. Saints who go (except for brand new ones) are much more excited about meeting...

Re: A Public Service Announcement

They still do give hospitality; however they are not "pushed" as much to do so today, so I know many families don't do it. Again, this is another change that slowly crept in over the years in the...

Re: Public Service Announcement

Yes, things have changed a lot. I think I had mention this in my own thread under Intros & Testimonies. Today, it is understandable if you cannot attend a semi-annual training because you need to...

Re: My Views and Stance on The Recovery

Thank you all for your advice. It has been very helpful and much appreciated. It seems like leaving the LC quietly and slowly is the best way to go. I have already not been to Sunday morning meetings...

Re: My Views and Stance on The Recovery

You are right. I should not feel guilty that I cannot speak with my LC friends in this matter (LC history, teachings, and practices). We have multiple friends. Each friend supports us and meets our...

Re: My Views and Stance on The Recovery

I think you have touched on one of the most important question for me. Is it worth leaving? Because it would include leaving some friends, or at least some parts of our friendship. Yet, I need to...

Unhappy Re: My Views and Stance on The Recovery

Thanks awareness. This works if you don't have any close friends/connections in the LC. I have a few, and more than a few. There is no way I can just step out quietly without being noticed. I grew up...

Re: My Views and Stance on The Recovery

Re: My Unforgettable Memories: Watchman Nee and Shanghai Local Church - Dr.

This proves my point exactly. I have been saying in various posts that the LC is just like any other denomination, but a weird one. They are not "God's move" on the earth. Things have changed in the...

Re: My Views and Stance on The Recovery

I have a love-hate relationship with the "Recovery church life". I love it because I have way too many friends and loved ones in it. And I love all my brothers and sisters in the Lord (whether in or...

Re: My Unforgettable Memories: Watchman Nee and Shanghai Local Church - Dr.

I disagree that this *is* the truth. But I agree that this *may* be the truth. You weren't there so you don't know. As I said, I agree with many things you have posted so far. They are just one side...

Re: My Unforgettable Memories: Watchman Nee and Shanghai Local Church - Dr.

Christian: What is the big deal? Is your purpose in coming to this forum to tell us that we are wrong about Nee? Or that Hsu's book is wrong? What's bugging you? You want to keep a pristine image of...
