Re: Quotes and Quips

Yes, that's what "walk in the spirit" got reduced to in the LC. They had all the books, all the outlines. But when it got boiled down, it was "turn to your spirit" which meant "open your mouth and...

Re: Guilt is eating at me like a starving rat

This kind of post is important to the discussion as it shows the dilemma people are in, trying to dis-entangled from the web that's the LC. It's a social web, family and friends, occasionally a...

Re: "THEY CALLED IT THE LAW OF MOSES."

Psalm 119:112 "I incline my heart to perform your statutes forever, to the end" (ESV). Jesus spoke very similar in John's gospel, chapters 14 through 16. Jesus came at the Father's command, the...

Re: Finding Biblical Context For Women 'Are More Easily Deceived'

Curious, great post. Many were encouraged to see Jo and Greg Casteel stand up. It is not wrong to seek rightness. "Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His rightousness, and everything else will be...

Re: "THEY CALLED IT THE LAW OF MOSES."

Here's the thing with Moses. Jesus said, "Moses wrote about me". ~John 5:46 He didn't say, "Moses wrote about me, then Paul, then a lineage of great teachers, all of whom see God and get direct...

Re: shepherdingwords.com

DCP does have a problem if members begin to see these recurring issues and common patterns. Imagine if a 30-something young mother, grew up in the LC, went to the FTTA, gave her life to the LC...

Re: Quotes and Quips

WL would often say that the Bible revelation was "simply this" or "simply that", which has some appeal, perhaps even utility. But the prime effect was to pare away other thoughts, groups, ministers....

Re: "THEY CALLED IT THE LAW OF MOSES."

And are there any fanatical "Lord Luther" sects springing up in Germany, Norway, or Finland? Thousands of Finns gathering and chanting, "O Lord Luther" at the tops of their lungs for hours on end?...

Re: shepherdingwords.com

To rephrase my earlier point, who exactly are they trying to fool here, except people who are already fooled and want to stay that way? Do they really think that the mass of people who read Don...

Re: shepherdingwords.com

It's sort of like a firewall, to prevent the curiosity to spread further. For example, they present "Facts concerning Daystar Motor Homes", apparently hoping this will end someone's quest to learn...

Re: shepherdingwords.com

Actually Mormonism went through something like this a few years ago. Similar to the Jo Casteel FB letter, someone wrote a document called "The CES Letter" which stated concerns and questions to their...

Re: LordsRecovery.Org Exposing the Christian Cult of Witness Lee's Local Ch

We were led by these constant and unfair comparisons to believe that the Recovery at its worst was equal to the best of fallen, compromised, "Babylon Christianity". Now, thanks to posters like...

Re: Truth

On another thread (The Asian Mind/The Western Mind), I wrote that Asian values and mores are in no way inferior to the West, having served them for thousands of years. And I'd add that in the divine...

Re: LordsRecovery.Org Exposing the Christian Cult of Witness Lee's Local Ch

A point worth noting in the "us vs them" dynamic as often played out: in order to define "them" in this dynamic, the other party becomes a caricature. Here, one's presented with something called...

Re: Truth

Great video.



First, is there God? Does God exist? That's a personal decision in the path of truth. Perhaps like the "quantum entanglement" dilemma... something that can be inferred, and offers...

Re: Finding Biblical Context For Women 'Are More Easily Deceived'

Then WL or his Blended acolytes should admit that Watchman Nee was also easily deceived by absorbing Jessie Penn-Lewis' thoughts and channeling it in his book "Spiritual Man", such that the publisher...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

2 Timothy 2:8
Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David. This is my gospel

Pretty simple.

Also I like,

Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

I agree with your point. WL couldn't get the Psalms to deliver value to his "Processed God" metric so he essentially dismissed them. He's not the first Protestant or post-Protestant to do so, but the...

Re: What is God's Economy?

When I speak of activities, noted in detail in Acts and referenced in Paul's letters (e.g., Corinth) I am thinking of those who have, sharing with those who don't have. That I see as a universal...

Re: What is God's Economy?

Re: What is God's Economy?

Yes, this is why the book of Acts suddenly looms so large in my consciousness, because it isn't about the details of what they taught, so much, as the details of what they did. They taught the...

Re: A Review of Hank's Recent Book.

Nice summary of a well-written piece. Better and more thoroughly done than many of us could have, including myself.

Re: Resurrection is the key

Jonah prayed in the belly of the whale, that God could save him. That was obedience. God saved him. Jesus referred to Jonah's experience as what he would pass through.

In Psalm 16, David said God...
