Re: Wake-up Letter to Minoru

I remember Benson Phillips saying virtually the same words in the late 60’s. THE LATE 60’s!!! The words he used were “just you wait!” As a result we looked past the present, relied on our prideful...

Re: How do you experience the Cross?

Yep. I thought of that wonderful classic hymn, too.

The gospel of Jesus had to be simple enough for the entire world of different people to understand from the youngest to the oldest. I got saved...

Re: How do you experience the Cross?

1 Samuel 15:22 ...obedience is better than sacrifice. And I don’t mean obey the teachings of Lee...or the “blendeds”. By the time I left “it” I was convinced that it was much...

Re: How do you experience the Cross?

I dunno STG. It appears to me that these verses point more to the workings of the Spirit; that is, in bearing the cross you allow the Spirit to do the work....it’s not something separate from the...

Re: How do you experience the Cross?

StG,

Can you first give scriptural “evidence” that Christians “experience the cross”? Of course, in the New Testament we are frequently told to “take up our cross” which indicates we have a cross...

Re: Co-workers In The Lord’s Recovery Declare Themselves as APOSTLES!

The “proper” way to deal with problems in the Church is Matthew 18:15-17.

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

To my observation the “Local Churches” that existed in the “early days” no longer exist. When the LSM rose to power, the churches, in effect, became franchises of the Living Stream Ministry. So, from...

Re: How is Christ building His Church?

Here’s another question: Do you believe He will build His church in any way other than the path he has already given? I.e.,
1. Believe in Him
2. Trust him
3. Obey his commands
4. Talk to him
5....

Re: "Church" is not in the Bible!

Benson Phillips said in Houston, early on:

If you are centered on Christ, the church will come out.
If you are centered on the church, nothing will come out.

I think he was right.

Pay Attention To What They Say "They Are Not"

I have come to believe “get out of your mind” is just a way of telling someone to “shut up”, only it sounds “spiritual”. That is generally the end result ... conversation over. Either that or they...

Re: I cant deal with any of the LSM and LC stuff anymore.....

BJS03,

I’m so sorry. Your post breaks my heart. It seems your problem is not as much with the Christian faith, but with the Local Church. I gather your parents are LC?

Be sure, your hope is...

Thank you for this post. I have long believed that Christians minimize the spiritual world and pay little attention to its effects on our lives and walk with the Lord...this regardless of...

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

Before I read Hsu's book I was a total skeptic. I couldn't believe that Nee would do such things. Lee & sons yes. Nee, NO!

The more I read, the more I began to think there might be something to...

Re: How is the LC abusive to you?

So that’s how you justify sin? The LC is big and humans are sinful. Oh well. Things happen. Just forgive. Let’s pray-read.

How do you know ex members hate the LC at all? Who told you this?...

Re: How is the LC abusive to you?

Are you serious? “We”? Should “we” reconcile and “just forgive”?

What’s your story of abuse by the “imperfections” of the Local Church leadership? Who did you forgive? Who are you reconciled with...

I was summoned to the “elders” room one night after a meeting. I had no idea what was about to happen to me. One of them raised his voice at me and told me THIS IS GOING TO STOP!!!!

How do you leave (the LC) without making a scene? I don’t know that you can.

Re: Why not just move on?

I think telling someone who has been hurt in the LC to “just move on” is a little harsh.

Re: Why not just move on?

I think you should change your moniker.

You are preaching another gospel. Easier for who? "Healthier" for who? You? The so-called "Blendeds"? Wasting time? There will be 1000 years to clear these...
