Re: Quotes and Quips

"In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us taht no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousandfold in the future. When we neither...

Re: "A particular and unique place"

Make the LC Top Dog happy, make Jesus Christ and God the Father happy - pretty much a one-for-one analog in the LC. In fact, I'm hard pressed to come up with any scenario in the LC where this would...

Re: TexasStreetPreacher - Testimony of How I Got Out

It's actually a good message, at least on some levels, and it probably hits too close to home for many to be comfortable. But such messages are really part of the Bible, including the NT. Personal...

Re: TexasStreetPreacher - Testimony of How I Got Out

I amen what Trapped says. I just listened to the whole recording and though it starts off somewhat aggressively confrontational there's a zeal there for repentance and reform. Problem is, speak such...

Re: Spouse In The Local Church - How Do You Handle It?

Yes it is a common phenomenon. Not publicized by the LSM and not tabulated by the rank-and-file saints (if they publicly noted it they'd get in trouble for "being negative"), but the vast majority of...

Re: Eating & Drinking Jesus Daily - Who emphasizes this besides the LC?

You quoted "Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God." (post #107) I think the 'every word' part was meant literally by Jesus - he didn't have a...

Re: Awoken after 38 Years

I came in years later, and saw public exposure referred to as "training" and "perfecting". Shame, ridicule, intimidation, public humiliation, and then they retreat behind "Matthew 18 principles"...

Re: Awoken after 38 Years

Good point. Did BP and or WL go to JA and SR and "privately express concerns" in order to "cover the sisters" or did they hold a kangaroo court, where accusation and judgment were simultaneously and...

Re: Matthew 18 Principle

So ironic that they're now appealing to due process when for decades their due process was, "Brother Lee is always right." It didn't matter how many witnesses lined up, per 2 Cor 13:1 (Deut 19:15). I...

Re: Matthew 18 Principle

Private fellowship first is recommended (commanded) by the Lord as a kind of protection or safeguard against stumbling and shame. With LSM, repeated attempts to privately and quietly address real...

Matthew 18 Principle

The LSM/DCP/Blendeds say that Jo Casteel and Annie McArdle didn't follow Matthew 18 principles (private fellowship first) so the public complaints are invalid.

But John Ingalls and Steve Isitt...

Re: A Sister's Testimony

I agree that we passively sat under curses and absorbed dark energy, sat there mutely while "Christianity" (everyone else) was called every dark name and subject to every dark insinuation. Because we...

A note on exegetical principles

Those who wrote scripture, and their designated readers, didn't have degrees in theology, but they followed common - sense laws of logic, what we'd call conventional wisdom. To be sure there was...

Re: Guilt is eating at me like a starving rat

Some of us have been physically out for years and are only now starting to consider what the Bible actually says versus what the RecV had told us it said. We wanted it to say something that it...

Re: Glad to be here

An interesting thing about being in that situation is that it forces you to confront what you do believe, and prove it to yourself. It forces you to go on a Christian journey you never would have...

Re: Eating & Drinking Jesus Daily - who emphasizes this besides the LC?

Do you think that P-R is "eating Jesus"? That's what it was sold as in the LC, that's what StG is apparently referencing in his title. Yet there's nothing behind it except a sales job by the...

Re: Eating & Drinking Jesus Daily - who emphasizes this besides the LC?

But where does scripture say that this is "eating Jesus"? Paul says to take the word as a sword of the spirit via prayer. Jesus spoke one word and the dark forces fell back: "I am he" (John 18:6)....

Re: Eating & Drinking Jesus Daily - who emphasizes this besides the LC?

But where does it say "pray" it here? How is this even implied? How does one not know that it means "live by"? Like, "I live by the Code of Hamurabi"?

When people see words they assume other words...

Re: Eating & Drinking Jesus Daily - who emphasizes this besides the LC?

The title says "Eating Jesus Daily" and "who emphasizes this besides the LC" - unless you categorically deny the LC practice of pray-reading as "eating Jesus" I'm going to assume you affirm it. My...

Re: Eating & Drinking Jesus Daily - who emphasizes this besides the LC?

Re: Eating & Drinking Jesus Daily - who emphasizes this besides the LC?

The title of the thread is "Eating Jesus". The OP said that this was pray-reading. You mentioned pray-reading so I assumed you agreed with the OP, and I was looking for scriptural basis.

Re: Eating & Drinking Jesus Daily - who emphasizes this besides the LC?

Well now we're finally getting somewhere! Amazing that such a simple request could be so confounding. So we have "an interpretation". That's better.

If you look at John 6, the key (for me) seems...
