Re: Has Lee really embellished and distorted Nee's works ?

I may have confused Christian Literature Crusade (CLC) with CFP https://www.clcpublications.com/about/FP, and vice versa. Both published Nee, and some of their books were in my local churches’ book...

Re: Intro of an ex "Church Kid"

I’m glad you are healing from LC violation. While I wasn’t raised in LC (I was entrapped at age 17), one of the reasons I left was I wanted no part of forcing LC religion on young people or...

Re: The Intensified God

Lee also used a fragment of John 7:37 “...the Spirit was not yet because Jesus was not glorified yet.” when he spoke of God being processed.

Here is the Greek-English parallel of that verse....

Re: The Intensified God

Related, but a little different topic is Lee’s “God was processed to get into man that man may become God in life and nature but not the Godhead” statement.

He often cited 1 Cor 15:45b when he...

Re: Soul-Life, Kundalini, and Watchman Nee

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