Re: New Book Challenges Nee's Legacy

I agree the blog format might work better for amrkelly. Not sure how that is set up. Is that something UntoHim or Igzy manage?

Re: Combating LC Arguments

I'm not sure how you are arriving at this "sense" or how exactly you are defining "narrow path" but in the examples you use Paul was addressing adding to and subtracting from the gospel. In...

Re: Combating LC Arguments

I agree we should be careful about this matter. As long as others are not trying to impose their non-essentials on us we should respect their right to worship according to their conscience and...

Re: Combating LC Arguments

My preferred question is: What would Jesus have me to do?

In any event I think we may be talking about two different things. In the examples you give the parties Jesus is addressing are not...

Re: Combating LC Arguments

I'm not sure who the "them" is in your question but my own view is that unless a current LC system member is emphatically trying to impose his/her views on you then it is more or less pointless to...

Re: My Views and Stance on The Recovery

The premise of the LC system requires a black backdrop. If Witness Lee cannot paint Christianity as the big bad whore then who needs the "The Recovery" - that remnant group of God's super special...

Re: My Unforgettable Memories: Watchman Nee and Shanghai Local Church - Dr.

After this current crop of leaders who were directly under Witness Lee dies off it'll be interesting to see what evolves. Apparently Lee's succession plan was Brothers We (if they are to be...

Re: My Unforgettable Memories: Watchman Nee and Shanghai Local Church - Dr.

After reading about the sickening idolization of Watchman Nee way back when I'm not sure anything has fundamentally really changed that much. Maybe we are just seeing different manifestations of the...

Indeed...and that'll cost you! But...at least you'll be buried on the proper ground.

Re: My Unforgettable Memories: Watchman Nee and Shanghai Local Church - Dr.

My guess is they're selling the plots at market or above market prices (after all the site is sanctified and the MOTA is already buried there so a premium is in order!)

Re: My Views and Stance on The Recovery

I agree. The idea that Christians are or should be a block politically flies in the face of on-the-ground reality. Some Christians act as if Jesus is a white suburbanite who votes Republican in...

Re: My Unforgettable Memories: Watchman Nee and Shanghai Local Church - Dr.

Nailed it! Indeed it was just an expediency. And one that allowed them to build an international church system with themselves at the center. Even in death their written works are a defacto Bible...

Re: My Unforgettable Memories: Watchman Nee and Shanghai Local Church - Dr.

Yup! Comedians would have a field day with this stuff.

And the whole reason is because other cemeteries are "worldly" so we need are own "sanctified" site. Still arrogant and separatist even in...

And my favorite part is the infomercial by LSM president Benson Phillips and other staffers complete with the following disclaimer:

Re: My Unforgettable Memories: Watchman Nee and Shanghai Local Church - Dr.

In her book Dr. Hsu mentions that actually Philip Luan was Watchman Nee's closest coworker until he found out about Nee's immoral behavior and went back to work with Wang Mingdo.

Re: My Unforgettable Memories: Watchman Nee and Shanghai Local Church - Dr.

No I would not expect it! Point being Joshua Yu endorsing and writing a Preface to Dr. Hsu's book adds weight and lends credibility to the work as clearly he is not some "opposer", "leper", etc....

Re: My Unforgettable Memories: Watchman Nee and Shanghai Local Church - Dr.

The Preface he wrote for Dr. Hsu's book and the notes from the meeting with the Riggs both indicate that he was the author of The Cross and Suffering.

In item 2 of the notes it indicates that his...

Re: My Unforgettable Memories: Watchman Nee and Shanghai Local Church - Dr.

Also what I think lends credibility to their work is: they are not against Watchman Nee. They have many positive things to say about him throughout the book. But like any good historians they give...

Re: My Unforgettable Memories: Watchman Nee and Shanghai Local Church - Dr.

It is quite disconcerting that Watchman Nee would take this stance but I think it may behoove us to remember the intense upheaval and turmoil China was going through at the time. They were just...
