Re: GSPOTE

I'd like to re-frame my argument from post #54.

There actually are "great spiritual persons". There is to be a "kingdom reward". There will indeed be rulers over ten cities, and rulers over five....

A Great Spiritual Person on the Earth - GSPOTE

I’d like to develop this idea as pertaining to finding fellowship among believers in your geographic area, and for that matter holding the gospel out to unbelievers.

The main issue the Bible deals...

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

The topic is, if you are new in town, where to bring your family to fellowship with other believers? My point was that "to believe" 2,000 years after Jesus Christ is not so simple. Or, if it is...

Re: Dan Towle Removed, Leaves Recovery

I think Ohio put it best - the sooner that you get expelled from the Exclusives' assembly, the better off you are. We certainly can hope so for Dan Towle. He's spent decades propping up someone...

Re: Awoken after 38 Years

My point about Daystar was this: even if it hadn't been a financial boondoggle where the money disappeared, at least some of which was in the hands of unspiritual child Timothy Lee, and 'investors'...

A FB post

A post by one who was in leadership in the LC, from '72 to '89.

"I would follow up with brother Lee was not a deceiver. God used him. He loved the Lord. In the early days we would leave his Wed...

Another letter

Another letter posted on FB yesterday, with a link to the Casteel Open Letter.



There's some mind-boggling stuff on that FB page. Young people (yes, I'm 'old') saying what it's like. Look at...

Re: Awoken after 38 Years

I'd like to throw in my two cents. I've been reading Koinonia here for several years and the posts are often among the most well-thought-out and well-reasoned things on this forum.

But in this...

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

TedWhen I read the letter from Jo Casteel, I saw a person trying to reclaim their life and thoughts after 38 years of total domination by another.

In the LC, to attempt to think is termed...

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

The same person I quoted earlier from FB just wrote:

"I believe with all my heart that this is the time. If after 47.5 years the Lord can deliver me, it may be a sign that there are many, many...

Re: Awoken after 38 Years

Like Burger King, the LC can be called "Home of the Whopper" (yes I'm dating myself). One of the Big Lies in the LC was that in China, God found "virgin soil" for His "current move", free from the...

Re: Awoken after 38 Years

There's always an addendum, ha-ha.

Re: Awoken after 38 Years

No small irony that 100 years later, a group birthed by nativist resentment to outside domination (think, Boxer Rebellion) subsequently imposed itself as an alien culture upon others. It cannot be...

Re: Awoken after 38 Years

I agree. Few have had the wherewithal to openly challenge leadership practices which allowed so many to be hurt. In spite of decades of egregious abuses and unresolved systemic issues only a few have...

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

Same tactics used on Luther, on Wesley. "Don't despise the Body and its Sacrements" became a veil for ignorance and a vehicle for corruption. The church member knows something is quite off, yet is...

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

My certitude is that I've confessed Jesus as Lord and entered a faith journey. Others have theirs, some with more certitude involved than that.

I used to fellowship with JWs and LDS on the...

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

Everyone has to figure out who to meet with, and who to avoid. My experience among those who claimed certitude has made me shy of certitude. Perhaps too shy, I admit. I try to avoid the real crazies,...
