Re: Coronavirus Powergrab?

Not necessarily legit. Just human rather than bots. They have at least one reason to reopen the country but have nothing to say about any reason to not reopen the country. They only see economics....

Re: Modalism

The theological problem is not that they are accused of modalism, but that they do espouse a form of modalism.

Yet at the same time they declare that the three are co-eternal and co-equal.

And...

Re: Christ is the Body, "the Body-Christ"

I think you misunderstood what I was saying. The two passages might have a connection, but that connection does not make what they are saying the same thing.

Related? Maybe or even probably.

Re: Soul & Spirit - Same or Different?

One more comment. I have found that not needing to have everything answered or explained especially where it is not required for an understanding of other things has been liberating. I am free to...

Re: Soul & Spirit - Same or Different?

I went to public schools as well. And I had to learn some things much later in life.

One short comment: For the verses that mention something (as opposed to a feeling, etc.) that is called...

Re: Humor (keep it reasonably clean)

Scene cut from Back to the Future:

Doc Brown: Marty, there are a few rules to remember when setting the time machine.

Marty: Yeah. Like what?

Doc Brown: The first rule is, never set the...

Re: Quotes and Memes

And here the context is stated.

At this time, Saul was anointed under God's direction to be king. And David had also been anointed to be the next king. Both anointings were established by outward...

Re: Soul & Spirit - Same or Different?

And adding on to what aron posted, if you think I am dismissing anything about a "human spirit," then you didn't really try to read me well. I did say that when we look at the verses referenced by...

Re: Soul & Spirit - Same or Different?

I never said that it was simply a turn of phrase. It has meaning or it wouldn't have been said. But whether it is simply the same as other declarations is not clear. Surely there is some...

Re: POLL: How do you generally view the LC?

D3

All the way back to the beginning (with Nee in China).

I will say that the scale is problematic. This "different Christ and difference gospel" theme tends to argue against even being...

Re: A Corona Virus Great Awakening?

First, the situation is not that unique. It seems that way to us because we have not seen this kind of thing during our lifetime. Yet there have been much worse events in the past. Just 100 years ago...

Re: Soul & Spirit - Same or Different?

SoG,

I recall there being at least one significant review of the writings of Nee (Lee hasn't really provided anything beyond what Nee wrote). It may have been on the Berean forum, so no longer...

Re: A Corona Virus Great Awakening?

I see three eras.

The first is the OT where God declared that he would punish Israel if they were disobedient. (Yes, he also punished Sodom, and threatened to do the same to Nineveh, among...

Re: QUESTION: If *Hopelessly* Stranded on an Inhabited Island . . .

Then you didn't say what you meant to say.

When you say "Preach and teach another gospel and another Jesus" you indicate that they teach something other than the Gospel. And if you get saved under...

Re: My Confused Adulthood

It's probably true, and the reason that at least some of the people going to the FTT (wherever) leave soon after. I only lasted 14 years. 20 years would be too much. So if it takes just 2 years to...

If you need 144 rolls of TP for one month, you needed to see a doctor long ago.

Re: Humor (keep it reasonably clean)

I understand. But if we put politics in, then there will be arguments over the content. Right now there is a plethora of Lysol injection humor and I'm sure that some will find it aggravating.

Re: A Corona Virus Great Awakening?

It seems to me that while Revelation is not a book to be ignored, it is also not a book whose goal is to be figured out. It seems to me that the goal of Revelation is to paint a picture of events...

Re: Eating & Drinking Jesus Daily - Who emphasizes this besides the LC?

A few years back now, I had a nephew (in the LC) say to me at a large family gathering that saying it better improves the experience of Christ. He was tentatively eager to engage in a serious...
