Re: Where do you meet

I'm ashamed to say that since leaving them more than a year ago I have not found another church. One reason is that the LC made me VERY skeptical and cautious towards every church.

My fellowship...

Re: Testimony of FollowHim!

Since the LC was kicked off campus I've not been so active on this forum anymore, but I really need to point this out. Please see the Recovery Version's footnote on Revelations 3:8:



That's the...

Re: Just Left the 'Recovery'. What a Relief.

This is interesting. I never thought a lot about it, but it explains the difficulty I had in talking to some of the girls there. I found it slightly odd how the men and women had to sit with their...

Re: Help a concerned FTT trainee.

He is right. I for one appreciate the anonymity of this forum. It might be better for you (BlossomingLily) not to be overly specific on places and people.

Re: Help a concerned FTT trainee.

How did you end up in the training? Where did it all begin?

Re: Wait, It's A Cult?

I recall one time, as every person took his turn to share something, how one person stood up and said something absurd. I cannot remember what he said, but it was akin to saying that Solomon was...

The Local Church in Russia

I haven't posted in a while. Since our Christians on Campus were kicked off campus, I haven't seen a lot of LC members and as such this whole issue has been far from my mind.

This morning a good...

Post Christians on Campus Kicked Out - Tuks

Christians on Campus had been on the University of Pretoria for many years, as far as I understand. As some of you know I attended it for my entire first year and a part of my second year, after...

Re: Calling God Father

Yes. We agree that God has been called "Father" since before the New Testament. I don't see how this fits in with your quote:



I also don't see your point here. As far as I've always understood...

Re: How many are former members of thr local church

I left almost a year ago. What drove me away were their theological views and their implying that man can be lesser gods. I've heard someone say that we are, in a sense, "gods" with a small "g".

Re: GotQuestions and Norman Geisler on the Local Church

Sure. I only wanted to draw attention to Geisler's statement and I hope I have.

Re: GotQuestions and Norman Geisler on the Local Church

This is just not true. Those two are not the same. If they were, then denying the antecedent and affirming the consequent would not have been logical fallacies.

Besides, you seem to think that to...

Re: GotQuestions and Norman Geisler on the Local Church

I'd like to add that you have to claim to know everything about the Trinity to know that it is not supposed to be logical. As long as you don't have that level of knowledge, surely you should search...

Re: GotQuestions and Norman Geisler on the Local Church

I admit I made a big mistake here. I equated logic to mathematics, which is not true. In logic things are not always equal. For instance, to say that if there is rain, that there will be clouds (A ->...

Re: GotQuestions and Norman Geisler on the Local Church

Evangelical, earlier you talked about models of God or of the Trinity. I agree with this. We can only have models. Yet why keep to an illogical model? It is unsound to insist that an illogical model...

Re: GotQuestions and Norman Geisler on the Local Church

I see there is another thread up on Lee's view of the Trinity, so I believe this doesn't have to be discussed here. Yet Geisler's entire statement is what I've wanted to draw attention to. I also...

Re: GotQuestions and Norman Geisler on the Local Church

What are you trying to prove here? That the Trinity does not exist? Some form of modalism? Even if true, that would be heresy compared to the orthodox view which has been held for centuries. And THAT...

Re: GotQuestions and Norman Geisler on the Local Church

I am beginning to wonder if the Eastern disregard for logic had any influence on the LC, seeing how it started in China.

Re: GotQuestions and Norman Geisler on the Local Church

I understand. Yet you miss the point. Have you even read Geisler's statement? He was drawing attention to how the LC will be almost blatantly heretical, and then the next moment be orthodox. My...

Re: GotQuestions and Norman Geisler on the Local Church

That's the thing. Initially it seems as though they offer everything logically, but when you dig deeper (like Geisler did in this statement), you find them being everything except logical. Believing...

My idea was to bring attention to the whole statement, not just the paragraph I quoted.

Re: GotQuestions and Norman Geisler on the Local Church

This quote was just interesting.The idea was to draw attention to the whole entire statement. See this in context with the rest of what Geisler said.

GotQuestions and Norman Geisler on the Local Church

When I started seriously looking up the Local Church, I went to the best website I know of when it comes to general Christian questions, called gotquestions.org. I was particularly interested in this...
