Re: Apostles and Prophets - Biblical Basis for Claims

I repost here the real question I’m looking for answers to. It is “generic”, not LC specific. And thanks for good discussion on this question.

Apostles and Prophets - Biblical Basis for Claims

Watchman Née, Witness Lee, and Blended Brothers all assumed to be apostles and prophets. Some Christians follow others making similar claims. Does anyone have good articles discussing “tests of...

Re: Some Good Things to Come Out of the Recovery?
