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

I'll attempt to lay it all out here so brace yourself, this will be a long post.



StG's title posed a specific question but in the body of his thread he made this statement, and I quote,...

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

This is the reason in bringing up mysticism, StG.

The Old Covenant consisted of daily sacrifice.

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

StG, I know you're trying to reconcile mysticism to Christianity but it'll only be in vain. We're not mixing paint here, there is no gray area. This is about light and darkness and light has no...

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

I'll answer you're question but I need you to answer this first;

Do you believe Watchman Nee and Witness Lee served the Gospel and the Lord Jesus of scripture?

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

Seeing as you were a former Catholic, Ohio, I'd thought you'd be in agreement with me on this.

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

God is spirit but he's also rational (Isaiah 1:18). You don't need to leave your mind to live by God's spirit. If you do, you're getting into a different spirit altogether.

This is what the Local...

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

In other words, I need to get out of my mind and into my spirit. Correct? Sounds familiar....

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

To recap, your and StG's argument is this; feeding on Christ is something that should be made into a daily exercise. You arrive at this conclusion by equating the language in Matthew 4:4 and John 6....

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

StG, I'm well aware of how mystics view Pharisees (teachers of the law or scholars). Just so you know I'm neither of those two.

Re: Guilt is eating at me like a starving rat

Least, I recommend doing a thorough exegetical study on "the Bride of Christ" and what that all entails.

The typical interpretation that came out of Catholic mysticism where the church = the bride...

Raptor, I'll first start by pointing out that you're taking two different metaphors and blending them together.

To answer your questions;

Shall men live on bread alone? No.
