Re: Life Study of Revelation Misses Mark RE: "First Love"

Your study of church history is wanting at best.

The early Moravian (Today's Czech Republic) church (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Moravian_Church) was there with John Huss (Jan...

The translation by John Ingalls, Bill Duane, and Al Knoch was better than the present one.

Re: Life Study of Revelation Misses Mark RE: "First Love"

Yes, of course!

But reading Brethren history one is forced to question how anyone could connect them with "Philadelphia." If you want "Philadelphia" in prophetic church history, then take a look...

Re: Sad Funny Ridiculous

So Steve Isitt's current mission was WL's idea in the first place?

Too funny. Can't make this stuff up, folks. :hysterical:

Re: Partial Rapture And Dispensational Punishment

WL, who presented us these teachings, had a team of faithful brothers / sisters surrounding him maintaining his pristine image to all the saints. He was thus portrayed as part of the perfected class...

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

My how things have changed!

When I was in the brothers house, video games did not even exist, and one new brother had seen the movie "2001 Space Odyssey" 76 times (and counting). :xx:

Re: John Ingalls / Minoru Chen Anaheim Annual Corporate Meeting

Interesting! Reminds me of the Midwest quarantines.

As DCP swept in to steal meeting halls, all the Midwest LC's were suddenly forced to examine their bylaws and prep the saints for contentious...

Re: Shepherding Words "From The Co-Workers In The Lord's Recovery"

As aron has noted elsewhere, all are just "confident amateurs."

Or as Cal has asserted, perhaps better described as "sheepdogs," merely protecting the flock of God from a stray wolf wandering by.

Re: Shepherding Words "From The Co-Workers In The Lord's Recovery"

I have not read everything available, but nothing I have read from WN's ministry after his discipline in 1942 has been healthy or beneficial.

WN left his "vision" of local assemblies administered...

Re: Wake-up Letter to Minoru

I have been mulling this thought against the facts of history for several days, and to me it presents several frightening aspects of "Recovery" ministry.

First consider the foundational ideals of...

The site owner comes right out and identifies himself, which I found quite shocking. If he has any vulnerabilities at all, DCP will immediately swoop in to exploit them. Perhaps he is unaware of...

Re: Why isnt anybody besides Cal, Jo, and Andria speaking out about the Chu

Are all apostles? Do all speak in tongues?

That was one of Paul's responses to those who demanded the same actions from all.

I personally believe that the numerous and diverse posts on this...

Re: Wake-up Letter to Minoru

Initially WL behaved like so many other 60's ministers who saw the undeniably genuine move of the Spirit amidst the chaos and protests of Viet Nam and a few high profile assassinations. Much of the...

Re: Shepherding Words "From The Co-Workers In The Lord's Recovery"

Depends on who you ask. The story I heard from WL for years was not exactly what matched the facts, or how Dr. Lily Hsu wrote about it.

One thing became certain to me. What WL told us about Nee...

Re: How do you experience the Cross?

It's not a law, it's a reminder, by wearing a bracelet.

Did you ever write a "to do" list or were you ever given a "honey-do" list?

Stop! Tear them all up! You just put yourself under the...

Re: How do you experience the Cross?

Shouldn't we allow young people their catchy slogans and movements to help them "stop and think," setting their hearts and minds on the Savior?

It was always so characteristic of WL to condemn all...

Re: Wake-up Letter to Minoru

I heard Ron Kangas say virtually the same words in the late 90ís. THE LATE 90ís!!! After WL passed.
