Re: YouTube Channel Discusses the Local Church

If it is the same one I was part of in 2018, there should be a disclaimer. "If you are a conservative, you do so at your own peril." This board is far more accepting in accepting diverse views and...

Re: Politics and the Church

“We’re tired of seeing our words and photos twisted to fit a narrative that does not reflect our reality,” the letter stated. “We’re tired of being told to show both sides of issues there are no two...

Re: Being in this Cult is one of the Worst things that Happened in my Life!

The local churches is not indicative of most churches. Ones I have attended since are no where near the sectarian and legalism the local churches are. Having been raised in the local churches I don't...

Re: Ron Kangas says Witness Lee is the greatest apostle since the apostle P

My serving brother back in the early 80's told us teenage brothers that Brother Lee is the modern day Apostle Paul. That's what we were taught.

Re: Ron Kangas says Witness Lee is the greatest apostle since the apostle P

Lee coming a century later had opportunity to learn from Darby's mistakes with Mueller & Newton. Nothing was learned since history was clearly repeated.

Re: STUDY: White Police Officers NOT more likely to Kill Minorities

Antifa, KKK, Neo-nazis, etc are all fruit of the same tree.
Yes antifa is now what the brownshirts were in the early 1930's. In Berlin police were prohibited from obstructing brownshirts...

Re: Politics and the Church

I do think news plays a big role. Turn off the news and you're somewhat unaffected by the narrative. The news are by and large anti-conservative 24/7. I do think the hatred for Trump is so strong,...

You had David Dorn (killed by looters), Dave Underwood, Itialia Kelly (by a rioter), David McAtee (by police), Chris Beaty (thieves). Not to mention numbers more in Chicago and elsewhere. Lives;...

Re: Coronavirus Powergrab?

No, no, no. Ohio, you need to understand "bots" is a word in LC terminology known as "opposer". If there's an undesirable view, it's discarded as "oh, that's due to bots".

Re: What a Lack of Increase Really Means for the LC

I'm sure of it. It's more of a time to get reconnected socially. Ministry speak is a lot of lip service. Sure you could invest in the latest ministry publications and never read. There are people and...

Re: What a Lack of Increase Really Means for the LC

Direction, content, and yes tone is top down. Tone of the locality is influenced by the lead elder. However the tone of his speaking is, most of the locality will follow suit. If he wants to minister...

Re: My Confused Adulthood

I think that's normal behavior. Problem is if one is an introvert, you'll always be like paint on a wall. Just part of the background. Elder or not; trying to gain approval is feeble. Personal...

Re: YouTube Channel Discusses the Local Church

I think it's a fair question to ask, if the recovery is the best why are so many children raised in the Local Churches end up in fellowship with non-LC Christian congregations?

Re: What a Lack of Increase Really Means for the LC

That situation would be even more difficult to meet anywhere else. One could grow up in the local churches, have their brother, sisters, nieces, and nephews in the nearby localities. It becomes an...

Re: Responsibility of Christians Responding to Aberrant/Abusive Groups

Just like the MSM networks, the LC does a lot of spinning the narrative.
If you speak to one's personal experiences, on the surface, "it's your experience". By no means is t meant to imply your...

Re: The Shunning

Many thoughts on shunning. It shows the system is more important than human relationships. Severed in an instant. I suppose the LC term for shunning is inoculation don't you think? Inoculation from...

Re: What a Lack of Increase Really Means for the LC

They say "there is nowhere else to go". There are plenty of places to go. The catch is having to start all over building church "social interactions". It's easy to go meet at a church where you know...

Re: Erroneous teaching of Lee concerning natural affection

How I perceived LC practice of natural affection similar to Luke 6:32. It's common to love those who love the ministry, yet as soon as any element of the ministry is questioned, one is turned on in...
