Re: Outer darkness: A thousand years? or for eternity?

Re: The Orthodox Churches

Re: Outer darkness: A thousand years? or for eternity?

Mike, on this I will agree that we all read the Word with some interpretation - HOWEVER: The point I was making was that the Orthodox church frowns upon the personal ownership of Bibles, because (I...

InChristAlone, I felt I had to address this statement of yours:

Re: Our Journey to Elden in Jan 1971

That's so very true. When I tried to bring up matters of history I received first a guarded response "We don't need to discuss that. The Lord has moved on, so should we" and then (literally) flight...

Re: History of Recovery in the USA

I have an issue with this statement. If this historical narrative is to be considered accurate, I think it is more fair to say that Lee and LSM alleged that these two books contained "defamatory...

I have (largely) stayed out of this "discussion" as I didn't want to lend credence to what it had become. Perhaps I should remain removed from it, but it's really taken on a life of it's own and...
