Re: The Vision of the Age, the Ministry of the Age, and the Minister of the

Dear Evangelical,
Based on your correction, it is not you who needs to apologize but rather me. And I do apologize for misinterpreting what you wrote. It was an honest mistake. And I am very glad...

Re: The Vision of the Age, the Ministry of the Age, and the Minister of the

Regarding the "magnifying" Paul did of his ministry, here is a useful discussion and link:

"I magnify mine office - I honor δοξάζω doxazōmy ministry. I esteem it of great importance; and by...

Re: The Vision of the Age, the Ministry of the Age, and the Minister of the

Evangelical, your post clearly says we have to magnify "our ministry brother". Your "ministry brother"is WL. You are clearly magnifying a man. All that the LC does and says is the magnification of a...

Re: The Vision of the Age, the Ministry of the Age, and the Minister of the

You see? It is clearly exactly as I said. WL is a mediator between them and the Word. Because he has so carefully planted the seeds of his doctrine and his special position throughout the life...

Re: Smoking Gun?

The "getting between" occurs whenever any teacher drowns out all other voices but his own and, by doing so, insists that his way is the new and only revelation for that time period. Look at the...

Re: Smoking Gun?

And he did not DARE quote anyone living and still be able to say "poor, degraded Christianity" and not have some holes in his argument against them.

Re: Smoking Gun?

I suspect that the problems with the link may have sprung up in response to "someone" having read that this link was being used and , therefore, a "problem" arose. You get my drift.

While the...

Re: Smoking Gun?

Zeek, this means he had to have said it more than once. I heard it around 1979 or 1980. He clearly said, "I am your apostle". Everything after that was a kind of blur because it upset me so.

Re: Smoking Gun?

"THE lead in carrying out the ministry of the age" = MOTA

The definite article "the" means one--a specific, singular, unique one. Why did he not say "a"? The indefinite article "a" means one of...

Re: Howdy from a Newbie

Hello to dear brother, Gideon!

I have thought long and hard about what I would share with you regarding the LC. There is so much to say that it is hard to know where to begin.

I think we all...

Re: Ron Kangas Message

A little brother has written:
" We hasten the Lord's return not in the sense we want to affect or change the Lord's return schedule. But that

Re: Ron Kangas Message

The phrase "I am coming soon"--along with the phrase "I come quickly" are often translated as "suddenly". When He comes, it will happen very suddenly and without warning.

Re: Ron Kangas Message

Certainly we can "hasten" the day of the Lord's coming in some kind of sense--the Bible says so. But since the Lord already knew far ahead of time exactly what would happen and when, it will still...

Re: Ron Kangas Message

The teaching that they (the LC--and basically only them) were going to "bring the Lord back" shocked and annoyed me more than most of their crazier teachings. I can scarcely even imagine an Almighty...

Because the Force is with me, I am coming back in to reply to the comment that if PRINCESS LEIA said it," it has to be true". (O ye of little faith!)

No, it is NOT because she said it that it is...

Re: Witness Lee's teaching on women

The Lord has given women a wonderful, truly equal role with men. It's not their fault that men cannot see it. To them has been given the greater position of service so that their reward may be...

Re: Brainwashing

After being a part of them for so many years (the LC), I have realized that there are those among us (in society and in church) who simply like being told what to think and do. Some of these people...

I have thought about why these people in the LC who are leaders have such a strong desire for control masked as "speaking the one thing", etc. I have this thought to contribute:

How interesting that you should mention that the faith of the LC saints is actually in the LC itself! This is very true! I have said this for years. As an example, if you were to ask one of them how...
