Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

I remember reading about Ruth Lee from several sources, including a prominent spot in WL's "The Seer of the Divine Revelation". Don't remember that part. Thanks for bringing it up.

Amazing, to...

Re: Praise the Lord for this website.

We think there should be some linear relationship between inputs & outputs. But God doesn't work that way. Thus, the occasional silences or delays to our petitions & pleadings as noted by Chambers et...

Re: Praise the Lord for this website.

Yes I wouldn't prescribe my Great Silent Time to any other as a remedy for spiritual ills. But looking back I can see the Lord's mercy. I remembered how to think again.

It wasn't really...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

I didn't know this. How much of this history has been covered over! Amazing. I think the adage is appropriate, that if you don't learn the lessons of the past, you tend to relive them.

Re: The Mormon Church is "The Church"?

"These experiences are crucial for the church to become a church of overcomers."

Amen. One of the great ironies of the Nee/Lee saga is that it prohibits the very thing it's supposedly based on....

Re: The Mormon Church is "The Church"?

You feign ignorance of my argument to avoid facing it. The LSM tries to legitimize its existence by presenting a Kiplingesque "Just So Story" of church history, conveniently omitting anything that...

Re: Blending

If there are no distinctions in the Spirit, then why did Paul, writing according to the Spirit, write of "gentile churches" in Romans 16:4? Why did he tell husbands to love their wives if there is no...

Re: The Mormon Church is "The Church"?

Perhaps you can state clearly why the EOC never had a reformation, why all the spin off groups like the LDS, JW, SDA, Christian Science and LSM all seem to emerge from Protestants and not EOC, and...

Re: Blending

In my experience in LSM church they cared little for covering the uncomely ones but for the so-called good building material.

If there are no distinctions then why is Paul referring to gentile...

Re: The Mormon Church is "The Church"?

The EOC is obscure? The Syrians and Ethiopians are unheard of? Maybe in Germany in the late Middle Ages, but today?

In one sense I understand, given that it was my view once; it's also common to...

Re: The Mormon Church is "The Church"?

But why does LSM discussion of the Reformation always seem to assume that meaningful church history only began with the Reformation? Statements like, "The Reformation was lipstick on a pig" implies...

Re: The Mormon Church is "The Church"?

You are framing the argument in a way that may have made sense in 16th century Europe but hardly in 21st century global Christianity. What about the EOC? What about the churches that split after...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

JJ thanks for speaking up. The more the LSM apologists try to assert something never happened, the more people need to say, "No, something did happen here".

Not only that but the exhortation was...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

I saw WL mock singing the psalms, "His mercy endureth forever" from the podium. He said it was "low". Then he said, "why not sing something from Ephesians?" (No, I don't remember what year. But I saw...

Re: Concluding remarks on Psalm 18

Now, should we reject the poetic "water burial" images in Psalm 42 (and Psalm 18) as "natural" because the psalmist was a sinner, or because he expressed contempt for his enemies instead of blessing...

Re: Two Year Training Testimonies

Does the Baptist church have the same rigid, hyper-centralised command-and-control structures as the LDS and the LSM? I do see similarities: all these groups have mandates to go forth & tell the...

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

I saw, and heard of, similar expressions by WL, even if not so blatant and shocking as what you saw. How to characterize this? Perhaps "dismissed" would be better. Or "disregarded", or "minimized"....

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

The position I staked out was that the ministry of Witness Lee deviated strongly from apostolic precedents in its reception of the Psalms, calling 18 of the first 21 psalms "natural human concepts";...

Re: Two Year Training Testimonies

Just like young Mormon missionaries, who after 2 years of serving LDS Church "end and purposes", get to return home, get jobs and have families. Talk about fallen Christianity. . . . if you only knew!

Re: The Psalms are the word of Christ

I never said "every scripture is about Christ", or if I did I mis-spoke. What I said in the first couple of posts on this thread was that there is probably "more Christ" in the first 21 Psalms than...

At best, one can say the lights flicker on and off. Peter is our NT exemplar here, not some culturally-derived "untouchable" like "Paul the MOTA", a self-serving fiction if there ever was one.

Re: Judge not that ye be not judged...

Not to mention, "devilish" and "satanic". All these demarcations may in some objective sense be true, but in a spiritual sense they're curses. We're called to bless, not curse. The ones who put the...

Re: Lee's errorous teaching concerns being in spirit and out of mind.

Some disliked my use of the word "braindead" to describe the result of "get out of your mind" in its various forms. My point was, why did Nee get to sort through various sources and create an amalgam...
