Is anyone aware of this website, www.localchurchesfaq.org ?
How on earth many websites do these people need to rehash the same things over and over again and never really answer or address...

Pay Attention To What They Say "They Are Not"

This particular saying in the local churches really rubs me the wrong way. The Bible NEVER says to get out of your mind. It says:

For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the...

Re: Fall ITERO 2019

Hi googlelight,

I see a vast difference between what you wrote and what is on the outline. What you wrote is primarily in past tense - God became man. The Word became flesh. That is not what I...

Fall ITERO 2019

Here is an excerpt from an outline at the recent ITERO this year, which can be found on lsm.org (reproduced here with slight formatting limitations):

Re: Trapped... Help?

I don't know if anything I say will help, but these were a few thoughts I had when reading your post.

1. The local churches are very clear that they want nothing to do with Christianity. They...

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

My main thought reading the article was "What an incomprehensible mess".

Also, "no one would ever describe this as 'shepherding' anyone".

Re: How is the LC abusive to you?

Unreg, I think my username is a good answer to your question. It's not just that there's flaws, it's that they tell you that they are God's deputy authority. And they, as God's representatives,...

Re: Cal = Igzy

As much as I understand Watterson's stand against commercialism, the one thing I wish would be allowed is a stuffed animal of Hobbes. Oh the conversations I would have with Hobbes!!

Re: Science scratches its' head

Okay, I understand the ruler analogy. Thanks. But this would mean the universe went from absolute zero space to infinite space in a nanonanonanonanonanosecond? It seems strange there is no interim...

Re: Science scratches its' head

I will be honest: that video didn't help me at all (and many others in the comments apparently too), but in reading the comments I did realize that I had made a mental error in my conception of the...

Re: Trapped... Help?

BJS03,

Can you explain a little more what you mean? What are you uncertain about? Why might you feel that you can't continue on your life being a Christian?

Do you have unanswered questions...

Re: Trapped... Help?

Hi BJS03,

Can you verbalize (either to yourself or to us) why you are on the verge of going kind of atheist? Whenever I feel a certain way it helps me personally to sit down and identify what...

Re: LGBTQ

There are several points that have been brought up that I’m just going to comment on in one post. I know this isn’t the best way but it’s all I have time for right now.

Re: SerenityLives

Any sexual contact outside the bounds of a marriage between one man and one woman is a sin, whether that contact is homosexual or heterosexual. Heterosexual people deal with urges and attractions to...

Re: What is true?

Definitely yes. This may or may not help you, but one brother I know made the comment that in the garden of Eden there were many other trees besides the tree of life that God told Adam and Eve were...

Re: Nigel Tomes - LSM's Unorthodox Satanology

My own take is not to take the word "dwell" too far. If a verse said "hatred dwells in him", we wouldn't think "oh, this means hatred is a living thing" and dissect the nature and essence of hatred....

Re: Nigel Tomes - LSM's Unorthodox Satanology

1. Sin is disobeying God. It came from the disobedient action that God gave Adam & Eve the freedom to do if they chose to do so.
2. One source, as ZNP said.
3. What got into man was the fruit...

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

Minoru and James use phrases like "this little rebellion" or "minor rebellion" or "little tremor" to try to downplay the situation.....but Minoru betrays things by saying the co-workers have been "on...

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

Chris Wilde.

In order it's Minoru Chen, Chris Wilde, James Lee, and Albert Lim.

I guess even the LCs will change their tune about "not caring for right and wrong" when they realize that the...

Re: How Much To Throw Out?

I think it's tongue in cheek. The first 30 minutes of the message are basically just Minoru going on and on about Lee, so it does come across pretty bad. I have never actually heard anyone pray TO...

Today's Witness Wednesday is doing me in too:

Do not simply know God according to what He does, but know Him according to what He is. Whether or not God does something for us means nothing.

Re: How do you know God cares?

His will in a specific situation, mostly. With the additional plea for release in the midst of it.

I'm just in a painful situation that has dragged on for years and it is too much for me. The...
