Re: Is One Church One City a bad idea or unBiblical?

Sorry StG, I didn't mean to steer your thread off topic. May I reduce all my ramblings into a short answer?

Is the one church (ekklesia) in one city a bad idea or unbiblical?

Yes and no.

Re: Latter Rain, Kingdom Now, & the Lord's Recovery

Another thing to look out for in those that adhere to the spirit of the New Apostolic Reformation is an inclination toward, or even an obsession with, the Song of Songs.

Re: Audio recording to FTTA alum meeting re: Jo Casteel

Not trying to stir up anymore controversy but did anyone else catch all that "father" talk in this recording?

Re: Is One Church One City a bad idea or unBiblical?

It's not crazy at all. I have a similar testimony.

Before I knew what the Local Churches were all about, I was gifted some LC literature. With an open mind and a sincere attempt at trying to...

Re: Is One Church One City a bad idea or unBiblical?

As far as I'm aware, LC doctrine doesn't contradict the first 3 points. The major issue is the last point on repentance and baptism.

The LC's teach that one needs to be "filled" with "the spirit"...

I've had contact with Cleveland and surrounding local churches but not Columbus although I've met a few members from there at conferences.

Re: Is One Church One City a bad idea or unBiblical?

I'm glad you were led out, StG. Myself being merely scorched by the Local Churches has even left discoloration that's difficult to wash off. I cannot imagine what the road to recovery looks like for...

Re: Is One Church One City a bad idea or unBiblical?

It's true, no denomination has gotten every detail right in doctrine. As scripture says, we all see through a dimly lit mirror.

But this is the main difference between most mainstream Christian...

Re: Is One Church One City a bad idea or unBiblical?

StG, I never personally owned Nee's or Lee's writing.

If the Local Churches weren't built upon God's truth and teach a different gospel (which I have no doubt about), then Nee and Lee were not led...

Re: Is One Church One City a bad idea or unBiblical?

If Lee ever condoned fellowshipping with other Christians it was for the self-seeking purpose of supplanting that person's faith and making them a member of the Lord's Recovery.

That's the thing...

Re: Is One Church One City a bad idea or unBiblical?

It's wonderful to want to fellowship with other Christians from various backgrounds. However I see a lot of ex-members swinging from the ultra exclusivist mindset taught in the LC's to an ultra...

Re: Latter Rain, Kingdom Now, & the Lord's Recovery

The Lord's Recovery movement's main inertia comes from Dominionism or Kingdom Now theology.

This is a heretical and non scriptural teaching turns Christ's 2nd coming into a works based effort...

Ohio, why do you think Ron did that? And why do you think Titus felt it necessary to compliment Kangas? I think your statement implies something but you're not being clear on what that is.

Re: Is One Church One City a bad idea or unBiblical?

God gave Adam and Eve separate names, He didn't call them by one name. I imagine He will call us by a unique name He gives to each of His children on an individual basis.

Nee did do the extreme opposite and rather than Christ, he gave women spiritual authority over him during his formative years. Because of those influences, he mingled false spirituality into...

Re: Rethink the "Lordís Recovery"

I completely agree. Very few groups claiming to be Christian teach that you can become God-men. Even more, none that I know of teach the need to empty yourself of mind and soul in order to be filled...

Nee introduced mystic/gnostic leaven into his belief system and it leaved the whole of his faith.

Re: Testimony of God's Grace - Herald Hsu

Scripture tell us that Satan can also offer us spiritual knowledge (Rev 2:24). If Satan can appear as an angel of light, doesn't that infer that his "deep secrets" can also appear as light?

Re: Erroneous teaching of Lee concerning natural affection

I've witnessed extreme embitterment within the quarantined sect of the local churches. It's why when I see it here, after a while, it just gets old.

In psychology it's called PTED and two of the...
