Re: Christ Living through His Believers as the Best ____?

Ha ha -interesting (and fun) take on that! So you think I was being snookered, eh? Could be. At the time I took the question at face value, but what you said made some sense about the MO of the...

Question Christ Living through His Believers as the Best ____?

Something a brother said awhile back on here has kept coming to me since then. I made a comment in a post like, "Christ is the best husband in me!" This person questioned that comment and asked...

Re: Responsibility of Christians Responding to Aberrant/Abusive Groups

Granted (though we are called to assemble together of course). So if regenerated ones make up the church, and there are regenerated ones in the LC and RCC (albeit likely not 100% of people there are...

Good. And to get more specific, a gathering of those born-again ones, right?

Re: Coronavirus Powergrab?

Can't disagree with anything you've stated, and have seen many of these things myself. My wife and I were sitting out front just last evening (it still cools down enough in the evening to do that...

Re: Responsibility of Christians Responding to Aberrant/Abusive Groups

So let's try a different angle - what makes a church - - believers with Christ in them constitutes a church (ekklesia: a called-out gathering), right? Does the LC or the RCC have believers in them?...

Re: Responsibility of Christians Responding to Aberrant/Abusive Groups

Thanks for the clear answer (that you don't think the RCC is really a church)! Yes, certainly several apparent parallels between the LC and Roman Catholic Church. Many theologians (at least...

Re: Responsibility of Christians Responding to Aberrant/Abusive Groups

Oh boy, I think Jo has now taken the lead in the longest response category! :hurray: (it remains to be seen if it takes 1st place for the best however . . .)

Now St. Peter will probably let you...

Re: Christ is the Body, "the Body-Christ"

Here's two more passages I ran across this morning for consideration, regarding the Head and His body:

"And God put everything under His feet and made Him head over everything to the church, which...

Re: Coronavirus Powergrab?

Could be. But my purpose for starting this thread was not about the micro-politics of the here & now, but rather the bigger, even spiritual picture to all this. Do you think we'll look back and see...

Re: Responsibility of Christians Responding to Aberrant/Abusive Groups

This just reminds me so much of what I've read and seen in documentaries about the Amish. But I don't know that even they would go so far as to shun or somehow punish a family member!!

Re: Erroneous teaching of Lee concerning natural affection

And I suppose that's because we bought into the idea that the LC was it, the one true move, so we didn't think it appropriate to speak up even if we had an inkling to do so. In my case, I knew the...

Re: Erroneous teaching of Lee concerning natural affection

I know what you mean. We all attempted to tow the line of LC legalism with such things, because we thought it was being genuinely spiritual. I never even saw anyone have just one glass of wine or a...

Re: Christ is the Body, "the Body-Christ"

Was rereading this thread - what a great discussion and back & forth regarding this great mystery of Christ and the church!

When I came to this last post by OBW (Mike), I read it a few times. ...

Re: Soul & Spirit - Same or Different?

I think I get your point now . . . finally! (yes, I'm a little thick 73.215% of the time) That is, you were making the point that having the knowledge that one's soul and spirit are different, has...

Re: Soul & Spirit - Same or Different?

Don't see much wrong with that - what am I missing? Paul repeatedly exhorts us to "walk in spirit." How do we do that? I've had many experience where there was something deeper within that is just...

Re: Ravi Zacharias 1946-2020

I'm curious (actually you're "Curious" :)) - what were those two things LC people had no comment on?

Re: Soul & Spirit - Same or Different?

Let me reboot this conversation by saying I believe the Bible presents a substantial number of verses
showing that both soul and spirit are present in man and are different.
