Re: What have you done?

Trapped,

You have a case, and you articulate it well. I don’t have a case. I just don’t know how this can be made right in this life. You and many more church kids were spiritually abused. Doing...

Re: A Corona Virus Great Awakening?

It certainly looks that way. However, 3 things: 1) I think Americans and Europeans are seeing the absolute necessity of “borders” and maintaining the ability to close borders when necessary. 2) Many...

Re: Open - Interactive Letter to The Co-Workers in The Lord's Recovery

I don’t think I’ve ever heard an acknowledgment that the rest of the world existed in any other context but “poor, degraded, Christianity.” I would be curious to know if they will open their coffers...

Re: Church Discipline Instead Of Covering Up

In a word, no. The LC does not practice scriptural public church discipline as correctly described by Trapped. However, I'm not sure that any church, LC or not, practices public church discipline as...

Re: "We Were Wrong"....not really though(?)

You should also know that Hank Hanegraaff was so impressed with the Local Church that he converted to the Eastern Orthodox religion.

Re: "We Were Wrong"......... not really though(?)

BHM,

I think most LC’ers know about the letter, they know who signed it and signing the letter became a point of pride. No one ran for the door. Most if not all probably would have signed it too,...

This link is to a response to the CRI's "We Were Wrong" article, and should help out with your discussion with your mom. However, it's much more. It's a personal account of the way LC leadership...

THE SPIRITUAL BELIEVER EXHORTED TO "JUDGE ALL THINGS"

The duty of this examination of spiritual things is strongly urged by the Apostle Paul, again and again. "He that is spiritual judgeth .. all things" (1 Cor. 2: 15).

The "spiritual" believer is...

Re: Spiritual Warfare

Curious,

I’ll add to your list: “truth”. That is, the truth of God’s word. It’s important to be educated about what goes on in the spirit world. Your post is very helpful. The most important...

Re: Spiritual Warfare

Yup.

I remember what it was like for me when the lights started to come on. This may be happening for a lot of the LC faithful.

Re: Spiritual Warfare

BHM--

It does make sense because of verses like Isaiah 8:19. While this verse doesn't specifically say people who attempt to communicate with the dead are communicating with unclean spirits, it...

Re: Minoru Chen is filled with Witness Lee's spirit?

Box, thanks for clarifying. I'm not offended. I thought you were serious.

There is a "Spiritual Warfare" topic on the main board. With Minoru's reveal, I think it's totally appropriate on this...

Re: Minoru Chen is filled with Witness Lee's spirit?

Box,

I agree, but your leaping mischaracterization above is absurd. Or was that your point?

The spirit world is real. It's interesting that there is so much resistance to a discussion of that...

Re: Minoru Chen is filled with Witness Lee's spirit?

It's a reality that there actually are demonic spirits everywhere...around every corner...? Maybe?

This may just be a matter of terminology, but I have come to believe that Christians cannot be "possessed" by spirits or demons. I believe Witness Lee was a Christian...a...

Re: Minoru Chen is filled with Witness Lee's spirit?

Ohio,

I don’t think you’re off the mark at all. A “hive mentality”, a “collective”, a generationally established Chinese ancestral network (guanxi?), all seem to add up to one thing: a counterfeit...

Re: Minoru Chen is filled with Witness Lee's spirit?

This sounds like one of my “this doesn’t make sense” prayers. Keep asking your questions. Something is not right. I see them both too. I don’t understand how. I don’t know the explanation in full,...

Re: Minoru Chen is filled with Witness Lee's spirit?

Thanks, Trapped. This helps. Interesting that you used the word “charm”. This carries its own connotation about how others are taken in by his heretical words.
