Re: Politics and the Church

Smollett longed to be a national hero successfully fighting off those evil Trump-supporting-MAGA-Land-Red-Cap-wearing white supremacist homophobes who attacked him in Chicago in the middle of the...

Re: Minoru Chen: "Growth in The Local Church in USA flat since 1985"

This is exactly right.

10-15 years ago some brothers in Ohio (John Myer et. al. using contemporary Christian music, skits, song-writing, relevant messages, good works, etc.) tried to initiate...

Re: Minoru Chen: "Growth in The Local Church in USA flat since 1985"

I still say the saints are precious, albeit duped victims here.

I remember 25 years ago WL telling the LC's that we had become Laodicea, and thinking to myself, "You are blaming us? Don't you...

Re: What is The Word?

Why do you call Melchizadek a pagan priest?

Since he is a strong type of Christ, our high priest, your statement is offensive.

Re: How do you know God cares?

This one one of my takeaways from the study of Job. God wanted some men of God to taste the inner anguish of His Son long before He came to die on the cross. God wanted a written record to voice...

Re: Minoru Chen: "Growth in The Local Church in USA flat since 1985"

The N.T. continually warns church leaders not to be "greedy of filthy lucre." ( see I Tim 3.3,8; Titus 1.7,11; I Peter 5.2) This word in Greek is the compound word "aischros-kerdos," or in English...

Re: How do you know God cares?

Thru the book of Job we know that the Lord loves us to the uttermost. Yet because we are fallen, He allows Satan to harm us in measured ways so that our faith can be tested and proved. God's past...

Re: How do you know God cares?

Yes, the universe does follow natural laws, but there is no evidence that these natural laws have been set in motion, like the old "Clock maker" metaphor, without being constantly maintained by the...

Re: Minoru Chen: "Growth in The Local Church in USA flat since 1985"

Ten years ago they excommunicated most of the Midwest, which btw was the "most Caucasian" region in all of Recovery-Land.

Re: How do you know God cares?

Great points. Glad to see your faith has grown thru trials!

If we would step back for a moment and ask God Himself whether or not He "cares" about us, He might say, "What an absurd question,...

Re: who was the "real" Witness Lee?

The Apostle Paul did say, "all can prophesy one by one," yet that saying was interestingly taken out of context. The question then becomes who was Paul referring to. The context of this verse (I...

Re: who was the "real" Witness Lee?

This is why no elders/pastors/ministers on earth would build up their churches with pop-up talks by all of the members. The result is often times just confusion.

Re: Minoru Chen: "Growth in The Local Church in USA flat since 1985"

In April of 1987 "Witness Lee's Statistics" were placed on a huge chart in Taipei. We were all assured that the entire world would be evangelized by 2000, when Jesus would return.

Minoru Chen: "Growth in The Local Church in USA flat since 1985"

Minoru has not a clue how to assess his own history of the LC. The first major error is the belief that Lee was the source of blessing. The second major error is that there ever was a rebellion in...

Re: Defining Religion

Defining religion is like defining culture, endless nuance is necessary. Religion is a neutral term, positive for one, yet negative for another, all based on personal and cultural perspective. ...
