Re: Kaung and Lee Lines in America - A History

What exactly is that ground of the church Nee taught versus what Lee taught versus what Living Stream is propagating?

Re: Kaung and Lee Lines in America - A History

Same can be said of Nee's other co-workers who left China. They're never mentioned in LC. It may very well be Lee was alone in pushing the ground of locality in the manner he did.

Re: in 1948 Watchman Nee changed his view

There may be more, but at the forefront there's Toronto and Vancouver in Canada and Accra in Ghana. Then there's ones with absolute split from LSM fellowship in Rosemead, CA and Moses Lake, WA....

Re: in 1948 Watchman Nee changed his view

I tend to hold the view Lee influenced Nee's change in 1948. Those who disagree with my view, that's okay.

Re: Kaung and Lee Lines in America - A History

I read this book in 1996. It touched my conscience to see our teachings doesn't match our practices.

Re: Relationships/Courting

That may be. "Brothers here and there" tend to be ones functioning in some responsible capacity for any given locality. It becomes a product of peer pressure for everyone else.

Re: Relationships/Courting

Quotes you've provided is Lee expressing his opinion. I've tended to take such statements lightly. My influence growing up was Gene Gruhler and Francis Ball. Not WITNESS LEE. He to me was an author...

Re: Brainwashing

I had a rude awakening. I used to think the brothers cared about ones future (a good job, family, etc). One Saturday morning at breakfast at the meeting hall, I expressed such aspirations to an...

Re: Relationships/Courting

Somethings Witness Lee did or did not do, I think brothers took that and became legalistic with those practices even if it's non-essential to our faith or plain not even scriptural. (For example...

Re: Relationships/Courting

Trapped, thank you for your honesty. I can relate from long ago. My experience is relative to one raised in the local churches. Those who came into the local churches as a young adult may have had a...

Re: Relationships/Courting

Drake, I would agree with you to a point. Restrictions should come from the teens parents. Not by brothers or sisters in the church. Otherwise a parent may consider their parental responsibility is...

Re: Relationships/Courting

Agreed! If it's the responsible brother/elder being approached it would be normal behavior to answer a question in form of advice. If it's being unsolicited, the though would be "what's the hidden...

Or even Practical Expression of the Church, but then again if practices matched what was taught, many of us may not even be on this forum.

Re: Relationships/Courting

Re: DCP

Re: Relationships/Courting

I agree with what you're saying here Evangelical. Even as brothers and sisters in the church, it's not enough to pair couples at whim. It's a given no one is at the growth spiritually. No getting...
