Re: Dan Towle Removed, Leaves Recovery

Dan is a dear brother. I thought he was officially canonized as a Blended. He must be in his 70's by now. He was heart and soul of the DCP going back to the MindBenders. Been on the payroll for...

Re: Awoken after 38 Years

Absurd! Yet too close to LC reality.

Has Ron Kangas gone off the deep end?


Take away the scripture and mock them for following their conscience ...

And this is the kind of nonsense...

Re: Open Letter - Dear Saints in the Lord's Recovery

This FB post was touching:



She posted Jo's letter on her FB page and asked all to read it thru.

Re: A FB post

You would think that LC'ers (like myself) would have learned something from Papal history. Obviously the original leaders in the church in Rome, perhaps starting with Peter, were serious men of God....

Re: Awoken after 38 Years

WL told us that the Lord led him to the US.

Later we learned that the Taipei saints were upset and rejected him. WL had forced the elders of Hall One to sell their church property in order to pay...

Re: A FB post

But WL made a career of warning us of all of these specific dangers in other ministers.

Re: Open Letter - Dear Saints in the Lord's Recovery

This is so pathetically manipulative.

We are commanded to love our neighbor and forgive them. The more we love and forgive others, the more God loves us and forgives us. Remember the Lord's...

Re: Awoken after 38 Years

This thread about Daystar (http://localchurchdiscussions.com/vBulletin/showthread.php?t=427&highlight=Daystar) is somewhat coherent, but unfortunately Daystar discussions tend to pop up all over the...

Re: Open Letter - Dear Saints in the Lord's Recovery

Welcome to the forum, Raptor!

I too was active for decades in the LC's. The Midwest quarantines forced me to examine both Brethren history and our own history. The "glorious Recovery" got...

Re: Awoken after 38 Years

MrsFreedom, Koinonia's comment bothered me too, so I went back and read your letter again. Had I stopped after reading the above section, I might have assumed wrongly as he did. But I kept reading...

Re: Open Letter - Dear Saints in the Lord's Recovery

I'll try.

If this letter from the Casteel's causes devoted LC members around the country to ask questions, and demand answers, from their leadership, concerning abuses of all sorts, including...

Re: Awoken after 38 Years

In Corinth Paul faced much of the same esoteric "mystical" verbiage which seems to possess these folks. When it comes to "who is of who," all simplicity of faith gets lost in the dense fog. Paul's...

Re: Awoken after 38 Years

You'd think that all the sandpaper I go thru would have helped with those "rough edges."

Thanks Peter!

Re: Awoken after 38 Years

Let me take a minute to tell one of my stories about how LC people cared about "honoring" my parents.

I went to the Revelations Training at the new LSM facility one month after joining the LC. ...

Not being familiar with all the dynamics of facebook, could this be the first LC testimony posted there?

Welcome to the Forum! I was hoping you would join us.

Thank you so much for writing your story. Just want to encourage you and your husband to continually speaking of your journey. It was not...

Re: Climate Change

WaPo has zero credibility with half of the population.

The Left has succeeded in making everything, from sports to family to the weather, political.

Re: I need a church life that isn't led astray!!!

I too well understand about being "shy of certitude." Certitude produces pride and the accompanying arrogance that is so debilitating to fellowship.

Perhaps another more difficult issue for us...

Re: Greetings

I no longer hold the view that the "early church" set the standard, and all subsequent church history is degraded or failing or sub-standard. Yes, the writers in the early church produced the...

Re: Greetings

Welcome to the forum, RambleOn!

"Without the fog of euphemism and vague pseudo-spiritual obfuscation," -- so well said.

Sounds like you have a lot to add here.

Re: Open Letter - Dear Saints in the Lord's Recovery

Here it is abundantly clear that the LC management style is not lifted from scripture but from the military and Chinese culture. There is a clearly defined "pecking order" which delineates the...

Recent events in the little town of Oberlin, west of Cleveland, are a show window into the current politicization of our Universities. When newly saved I used to visit a Christian coworker for a...

Re: Open Letter - Dear Saints in the Lord's Recovery

Re: I need a church life that isn't led astray!!!

As a point of comparison, referencing the "100 year head start," examining the history of the Exclusive Plymouth Brethren is far more informative. Both had identical beginnings, both then developed...
