Re: Ministry Churches

As we know in the local churches, a man's condition is secondary and a man's loyalty is primary. A brother can testify/prophesy occasionally and after having done this for 25, 30 years his loyalty...

Re: Ministry Churches

The matter of oneness is a heart matter. If a brother or sister desires oneness, there would be no issue of practices, ministries, etc.
When in the local churches there's insistence of using a...

Re: Ministry Churches

I had a different experience. It was more like a breath of fresh air. No more paranoia if I had a different perspective than the pastor. Imagine that, a churchlife where it's okay to disagree. No...

Re: Ministry Churches

In my estimation the diminishing membership growth of natural born non-Asian members is directly tied to the late 80's turmoil and leading coworkers and elders unwilling to address unrighteousness. ...

Re: Ministry Churches

The Local churches call themselves local churches, but in reality and practice they are ministry churches. Content is strictly from Living Stream Ministry. It's not for all believers. Only those who...

Re: Ministry Churches

When I was meeting with the local churches, Philemon was nothing more than a footnote. :hysterical:
Seriously, could it be that Philemon doesn't fit into LSM theology which is why little attention...

Re: The unfolding revelation, part 2

Same here. It was the summer of 1996 riding the bus from Seattle to Bellevue reading NCCL how I saw Nee's ministry was a stark contrast to LSM and it's federation of churches.

Re: The unfolding revelation, part 2

Isn't it ironic Lee's view on ground parallels that of the Exclusive Brethren? Other than Lee and Nee, I don't know if any of their coworkers also came out of the brethren.
That could explain why...

A Failure to Communicate

For those meeting in the local churches affiliated with LSM, if LSM publications is essential for fellowship, there will be a failure to communicate in regards to brothers and sisters not meeting...

Re: The unfolding revelation, part 2

Same argument can be used concerning "meeting on the ground...". My question is obviously, what is the basis of the ground? For one to say we are meeting on the ground of oneness in a given city....

Re: The unfolding revelation, part 2

It's really trying to make a preference stand as a fact. I'm many have heard at one time or another in the local churches hear Billy Graham being denigrated for an apparent lack. Graham's spiritual...

Re: The unfolding revelation, part 2

While Lee was alive it was normal to hear "Brother Lee said......" related to a brother's/sister's prophesying. After Lee's death, then the same trend was happening, my sense was "what! Lee's dead."...

Re: MINISTRY CHURCHES

I believe what the blendeds resurrected with "One Publication", Witness Lee initially spoke in the mid-1980's as a subtle shot directed at Bill Freeman. Much like the former Soviet republic's...

Re: MINISTRY CHURCHES

There's some truth to that. Ones I've known in the local churches have come from Baptist, Catholic, Mennonite, and Jehovah Witness backgrounds. With it, they bring into the local churches baggage...

Re: MINISTRY CHURCHES

I don't know, but speaking from experience you had speaking from the Bible versus speaking from a LSM publication (post 1990).
In my time in the 1980's as a teenage brother, the local church...

Re: MINISTRY CHURCHES

I think even now, these ones think they can sell a lie and pass it off as truth. When confronted, there's no response.

Re: MINISTRY CHURCHES

IF the churches are not for the ministry, rather the ministry is for the churches, there would not be any need to cut off fellowship with churches that elected not to take the ministry LSM publishes....

Re: MINISTRY CHURCHES

My sense is the leadership wants it both ways. They want the "local church" label, but using anything aprt from Lee's ministry is non-negotiable. As a disclaimer in advance :deadhorse:

When I was...

Re: MINISTRY CHURCHES

There is practice/teaching the ground of oneness with them has a corresponding reality to the Word. In order to have a ground of oneness with the local churches, your fellowship must be according to...
