Re: My Confused Adulthood

Welcome Isaiah,

Your story reminds me a little of Paul's story in Philippians 3. He gave us his pedigree of where he was and what he did and what great future plans he had laid out before him. I...

Re: The Chief End of Man: Glorifying & Enjoying God

I’ll just chime in here to say that topics of this sort make my head explode.

Re: Truth

I thought about posting the data. However, there is this legal “thing” called the “fair use doctrine”. Quoting Wikipedia:

Truth

Here are a few remarks from Watchman Nee and what he believed (at least what he wrote) about "following the brothers" and "truth". We could contrast this also to “even if he (Lee) is wrong, he’s...

Re: Bible as the Absolute Authority

I heard a similar story as a preacher joke. 1st opening "And Haman hanged himself..." 2nd opening "go and do thou likewise".
I think this was actually a George Whitington story.

Re: Bible as the Absolute Authority

More questions:
1) How do you “take Christ as your person”, say the words over and over?
2) How do you know when it’s “done”...when Christ is now “my person”?
3) How long does it last? Do you have...

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

UntoHim,

There was no need to “twist” Ron Kangas’ words. The words came out of his mouth twisted.
