Re: Recommended Christian Books, Authors, Blogs or Videos

Re: How Much To Throw Out?

I'm throwing out the notion that Lee had any kind of inside track to God's mind or will because although Lee heard from God that he should start an RV manufacturing business he did not hear the part...

Re: Outer Darkness?

Re: Arranged Marriages and Divorce in LC

My advice would be that all newly married LC husbands and wives identify a non-LC counselor or marriage therapist in their community that they could talk to when hard times hit. Would you like to...

Re: Arranged Marriages and Divorce in LC

I was blessed in that I was married in evangelical Christianity rather than the cultish (my opinion) Local Church version of Christianity. Before we left my wife and I had observed a tendency of...

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

For what it's worth this sounds very healthy to me. Do you feel safe inviting any of your pastors to help officiate?
