Re: Christ Living through His Believers as the Best ____?

Yes, Christ loves our wife better than we do. He also loves our children better than we do. And he loves our boss and our neighbors better than we do too.

I'm afraid that "Letting Christ live...

Re: Ravi Zacharias 1946-2020

Ravi Zacharias did not invent Christian intellectualism, but his contributions in this area to the Body of Christ, and even to mankind, are nearly inestimable. "Let my people think" wasn't just a...

Re: Soul & Spirit - Same or Different?

Hey StG! Don't look now, but you just gave me a little bit of the practical examples I was looking for! But before too many of your shirt buttons pop out, I must tell you that everything you...

I remember when I first heard the RZIM motto "Helping the Thinker Believe. Helping the Believer Think"...I thought, what a strange notion this is! It seemed almost antithetical to everything I had...

Shunning The Shunners?

Excellent observation Trapped! Is there any doubt that this dynamic was created by Watchman Nee almost a century ago during the infantile, developing years of the Local Church movement? I use this...

Re: Soul & Spirit - Same or Different?

Re: Vessels To Contain God?
