Re: Quote from today's Witness/Watchman Wednesday

Watchman Nee was a masochist. And like many masochists, he could not resist bringing others into his self-indulgent and self-gratifying suffering.

Re: YouTube Channel Discusses the Local Church

Okay, launching my new, more general video channel. It will touch on some current events from my Christian perspective. The voice on the video is closer to my actual voice.

Yes, the reason I picked all women was so I could pull the gag of saying "What do all these women have in common.... No, it's not that they were all harassed by Philip Lee... Shame on you for...

Re: Modalism

It's just one way to look at it. I believe it has some validity because it lines up too well with most of the things traditionally believed about about the Trinity, but otherwise inexplicable. But...

Re: Modalism

It's only MPD if there is a conflict. With God there is no conflict.

And referring to oneself in the third person is not that uncommon. And I've been know to say to myself, "Son, you can do...

Re: Modalism

I disagree to some degree. Are you ever in conflict with yourself? Complete integration with oneself is rare and laudable. It's called "integrity."

Re: Modalism

It's not wrong to say Jesus went through a process. It's just awkward to say that means he got processed in the sense of some kind of drink. By using the term "processed" Lee was just trying to add...

Re: Modalism

Equating the character testing that Jesus's went through with the process tomatoes go through to become tomato juice, and so validating the term "processed," is so dumb it's embarrassing.

Right, but insisting on the resurrection never "gets you in trouble." Insisting on some propriety view of the Trinity or the Church or whatever does.

That's a great meme, aron. "Theology is good up to the point it gets you into trouble." I like that!

Re: Modalism

To me modalism is denying there is some kind of relationship in the Godhead. Now, I know I've said that the relationship between the Father and the Son is like our relationship with ourselves, but it...

Some of us have heard of the sister who stayed home sick from a meeting.

When her elder husband came home she was wearily washing dishes. But he went upstairs and didn't help her.
