Re: All natural things are bad?

This is not a problem of Witness Lee only. It is rather general and dates way back to Gnosticism of the first centuries of Christian History. This is an offspring of our dualistic mind. And so...

Re: Rene Girard and scapegoat mechanism

Yes, and the verse from James you quoted earlier sums it up nicely.

Re: Is The Bible Inerrant?

Here is an interesting topic I missed. :) I found the book "Jesus Driven Life" very helpful in this regard. :)

Re: Rene Girard and scapegoat mechanism

No, actually you did a nice presentation :) Of course, there is much more, but it is a very nice foundation for discussion. :) Girard's theory is basically based on his mimetic theory - that we...

Re: Theodicy of the Spirit

Evil is a construct of human mind. In reality the world is perfect. To me a big part of my spiritual journey was to learn to accept things as they are - to yield to life.

Re: "Become" or "Not Become" Interpreting 1Cor 15:45

LC is so proud of their "last Adam became a life-giving Spirit" revelation. It is like one of the main stones for their theology. A simple question remains though: does it really matter? We can cut...

Re: How Much To Throw Out?

In the paraphrazed words of apostle Paul, leave what is behind and push forward. )))

Re: "Become" or "Not Become" Interpreting 1Cor 15:45

The matter is quite simple ) Can God change? Can anything be added to Him? If something can be added to God, then it musta existed outside of God :)

Re: Two Year Training Testimonies

The training is to indoctrinate you with LC teachings. I was there when I was a teenager. I enjoyed it, since it was a nicer alternative to staying with my parents who were divorcing then.

Rene Girard and scapegoat mechanism

Re: The Kingdom Principle of Relationships

Now I find it rather peculiar when we devide the kingdom age and the grace age - as if God is a double-faced Janus - today He is a nice God who is merciful and forgiving, tomorrow He is not nice...

Re: Being conformed daily to the Image of God

Well, when a very heavy burden is replaced with a light one, it is a kind of relaxation - or at least, relief. ;):p

Re: Prayer According to Christ

Since there were no commas in Greek, another variant of translation is "If we ask Him anything, according to His will He hears us". :)

Re: Minister of the Age

I am amused! So we gotta believe that W.Lee is the minister of the age solely on the basis of reading preferences of certain people! :thumbsup::justlurking::eek:

Who can argue with such logic?...

Re: God became man that man might become God

I would say that "becoming God" teaching manifests the "escapist" tendency not uncommon among all the Christians. Christians dream of going to heaven, neglecting the fact that God wants man to...

Re: Examining LSM's Eschatology - Revelation's 7 Churches

As for me, the most prudent way to take 7 churches in Revelation is to take all the warnings to all the seven churches as relevant to us today. After all, these seven epistles were written to the...

Re: God became man that man might become God

Witness Lee's teaching on deification was the climax of his teaching on dispensing and on "eating Jesus". Since God wants to dispense Himself into man, and we participate in this dispensing by...
