Re: A Corona Virus Great Awakening?

Thanks for your thoughtful reply! Yes and AMEN!

I listened to a current video someone sent me, of Dave Ramsey (popular Christian financial guru) and he said we probably all vacillate some between...

Re: A Corona Virus Great Awakening?

Sorry - looks like they embed some kind of tracking code in the link maybe, to see how many times it was read. I can't read it now either (I don't have a subscription). I'll see if there's another...

A Corona Virus Great Awakening?

Read an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal yesterday and thought to share: A Corona Virus Great Awakening? (https://www.wsj.com/articles/a-coronavirus-great-awakening-11585262324) As...

Re: Any good writtings beside LC?

I would second this, that is, asking Him to lead you to good sources. I did this, in utter desperation, back in 1998. I was at a local, very large, Christian bookstore and was searching and...

Re: The Old Way vs. the New Way

Me too! Because He is building His church . . . He is able! He's got this!

Re: The Old Way vs. the New Way

Boxjobox & Aron - agree completely. I was led to the LC in 1974 and it was all those things! When I left for good in 88, the New Way was settling in, and many were bothered big time. There was so,...

Re: I Am A Part Of The Local Church

Well conveyed - honest! Yes, we all still have the flesh and often walk in it, so we shouldn't be too disappointed with others (or ourselves) when things go sideways. Look, there are those in the...

Re: I left the Local Church After Reading the Real Church History

Or just set the information aside, as the thinking is this (the LC) is God's purpose and besides, where else is there to go? I think I was sort of like that - didn't really want to hear too much as...

Re: There Are No Overcomers Outside of the Local Church, What a Stupid Clai

Oh, I didn't know that you were referring to the capitalization thingie. Hard to determine, however, as said, my Greek text doesn't put the article "the" in there before Spirit, so . . .

Re: There Are No Overcomers Outside of the Local Church, What a Stupid Clai

Ephesians 2:22 says "in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in Spirit." (FYI - In Greek the article "the" before Spirit is not there)

And, to perhaps balance...

Re: There Are No Overcomers Outside of the Local Church, What a Stupid Clai

So I wonder what other exclusive claims could be made by the LC . . .

LC people are (supposedly) the only ones that know:
We have a human spirit
Christ lives in us
That we can eat and drink...

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

What can you say but WOW!!!???

Made me think of another group, the Seven Day Adventists - many of them could be said to be filled with a dead leader's spirit, namely Ellen G. White. And this is...

Please clarify - what would a LC person not be permitted to or dare say?

Re: There Are No Overcomers Outside of the Local Church, What a Stupid Clai

Thanks. So we've heard there are no overcomers outside The Recovery, but this takes it even further to say that it applies to sanctification too! Oh my. What's next - that no one is even...

Re: There Are No Overcomers Outside of the Local Church, What a Stupid Clai

The LCs get a lot right, but like everyone else with a flesh, they also get a lot wrong! This fleshly, elitist idea that overcomers are only in the LC is strong evidence of Laodicea. Lord have mercy...

Re: "The Ministry of the age."

I'd just be careful about thinking there has to be a large testimony as proof the Lord is in it (i.e., looking at the "seen"). God doing things and starting things in a small way is something of an...

Re: Factual or not?

Thanks for sharing that kind of guiding principle you use - a very good approach in my humble estimation (a princple I might follow from now on with my posts on here)!

Re: Factual or not?

Some good points brought up here by all involved so far! It's like me and my wife - she has a skeptical nature and asks me all the time, "How do you know that's true, and who are these people saying...

Re: Wait, It's A Cult?

Another thing might be the locality you are in. At least when I was in the LC (70 & 80s) the localities differed in how things were handled. Some adhered closely with the central control, and...

Re: Idealism

Yes, exactly! And that is an interesting irony - telling members to be attentive to the Anointing in each person, but then sort of telling them what that Anointing "should" be telling them . . . ...

Re: Idealism

The criticism and pointing out the shortfalls of Christendom was a bad road to go down --- and at the end of that road we all got mugged! This was fleshly and prideful and automatically resulted in...

Something came up in me yesterday as I was walking the dog, and I don't know if this would be helpful pursuant to the original topic. The old and new covenants can be likened...
