Re: "Church" is not in the Bible!

Benson Phillips said in Houston, early on:

If you are centered on Christ, the church will come out.
If you are centered on the church, nothing will come out.

I think he was right.

Re: I cant deal with any of the LSM and LC stuff anymore.....

BJS03,

I’m so sorry. Your post breaks my heart. It seems your problem is not as much with the Christian faith, but with the Local Church. I gather your parents are LC?

Be sure, your hope is...

Re: Curious!

Thank you for this post. I have long believed that Christians minimize the spiritual world and pay little attention to its effects on our lives and walk with the Lord...this regardless of...

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

Before I read Hsu's book I was a total skeptic. I couldn't believe that Nee would do such things. Lee & sons yes. Nee, NO!

The more I read, the more I began to think there might be something to...

Re: How is the LC abusive to you?

So that’s how you justify sin? The LC is big and humans are sinful. Oh well. Things happen. Just forgive. Let’s pray-read.

How do you know ex members hate the LC at all? Who told you this?...

Re: How is the LC abusive to you?

Are you serious? “We”? Should “we” reconcile and “just forgive”?

What’s your story of abuse by the “imperfections” of the Local Church leadership? Who did you forgive? Who are you reconciled with...

How do you leave (the LC) without making a scene? I don’t know that you can.

Here’s a question: what other Christian church or churches require that you surrender your freedom to walk with the...

Re: Why not just move on?

I think telling someone who has been hurt in the LC to “just move on” is a little harsh.

You met the Lord through the gospel as stated in the Bible, not Witness Lee. Whatever "good" LC teaching that exists, is "good" because it's in the Bible. The Lord dying on the cross is taught by...

Re: Why not just move on?

I think you should change your moniker.

You are preaching another gospel. Easier for who? "Healthier" for who? You? The so-called "Blendeds"? Wasting time? There will be 1000 years to clear these...

When I was "coming out" and rejecting everything, the truth that remains is from God. Truth is truth because of God and not because of any man. In fact, whatever WL, or any other man, taught of the...
