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

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

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

RambleOn, it is with sadness only that I hear of one more LCer who leaves that program without faith in our Lord. For sure, you are not alone. And, btw, Christianity is not as poor and degraded as...

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...

Re: Politics and the Church

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

Reading thru this family's story, I continually oscillated between sad and mad. I was active in the Ohio area LC's from mid-70's to the mid-00's, and what I read in their account was for the most...

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...

Re: Politics and the Church

Reminds me of a story my uncle told me. He was a union electrician building Jacobs Field in Cleveland in the early '90's. Bill Clinton threw out the first pitch. Life was good for the rich and...

Re: Politics and the Church

Thanks for reply. While I disagree with you about a "keen memory," you seem to have enough ammo from the LBL takeover to hate all politicians. Sounds like you have the makings to be a libertarian...

She was a comedian. They are all "outlandish." Did you never watch a comedy show? You, the minister of "laughter?" Sounds strange to me, bro. 95% of the comedians are liberals. Why don't you...

Re: Politics and the Church

Roseann Barr had her career destroyed for comparing Jarrett to a chimpanzee, yet no one suffers for caricaturing McConnell as a turtle.

Didn't we supposedly evolve from chimps? So shouldn't that...

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

I have interpreted the foreknowledge and predestination of a loving God to remind me that He gets all the glory. I have nothing to boast in. I Cor 1.31 does not just apply to boasting in ministers...

"Reformed" usually refers to the teachings of John Calvin, who tended to be extreme regarding predestination. For modern day churches, it basically provides safe "boundaries" for them...
