Re: How do you experience the Cross?

Amen the simplicity - everything is found in Him . . . even the cross! Even the willingness to obey is found in Him, as Phil 2:13 says, "For it is God who works in you both to will and to work, for...

Re: Curious!

As I read this, I was struck by what a system of error the LC has become. This is such a remarkable contrast to me, that is, contrasting my time there in the early 70s with what you wrote. Back...

Re: How do you experience the Cross?

Pursuant to what you wrote, I woke up this morning with this old song (that gets sung very infrequently around here) in my head:

Trust & Obey
For there's no other way
To be happy in Jesus
Than...

Re: How do you experience the Cross?

Amen - yes, exactly! It is only by the Spirit in and through us. Religion (and complexity) are in a mis-rendering of the verse, "If, by the Spirit, you put to death the practices of the body, you...

Re: How do you experience the Cross?

Here are some verses to consider pursuant your question.

Then Jesus told His disciples, “If anyone would come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wants...

Re: How do you experience the Cross?

To reply to what Nell and UTH have posted, it's agreed that we shouldn't go about "looking for my cross." When I was a new believer and first hit the LC, I was given WN's book, "The Release of the...

How do you experience the Cross?

I've always struggled a bit with the concept and the application of the cross. I've realized for many years I held a most laborious and religious concept around it, and therefore generally practiced...

Re: Sad Funny Ridiculous

There's no denying that that the Greek word oikonomia was the source of our word economy. But personally, the word "economy" never quite caught on with me. Some here in Scottsdale use it, but I...

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

Ha - yes! I'm sure we in that house were like a wild stampede! Probably not exactly the "good material" that was desired . . .

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

I was involved in what may have been the first of these purges, which took place in Berkeley in 1974. I was recently saved and fresh off the streets and was living in a huge old frat house that had...

Yes re Tyndale. He eventually paid for such clarifications with his life.

Re: Hiding History

We don't have cable, so I usually only see the cable news channels when I go to the gym. And like you, I lean right (somewhat libertarian), but I get tired of Fox News. They usually have Fox, CNN...

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

It can never be admitted that LSM/Anaheim is HQ as that would severely undercut the idea that the local LCs are autonomous!

Re: Does the Bible say we are Sinners?

Received. Good balancing word!

I think there is always the twofold aspect to spiritual things and the "cake" needs to be turned over. That is, there is the spiritual reality of who He has made...

Re: Does the Bible say we are Sinners?

The "objective side" is as God sees us, right? So that's where our focus should be.

The Bible is not shy about talking about our issues and subjective experiences. However, we are exhorted in...

Re: Does the Bible say we are Sinners?

Since there haven't been any more responses in the last several days on this topic, I thought to summarize:

Re: Wooden dolls, paper dolls

Re: Does the Bible say we are Sinners?

Yes. Of course, there is the Bema Seat of Christ where believers give an accounting of things done in the body . . . and living from the flesh means zero profit.

Good video and testimony -...
