Re: Bipartite or Tripartite Nature of Man?

I tend more bipartite because I find the so-called distinctions between soul and spirit (which Nee, and then Lee, tried so hard to separate in a neat way) to be so overlapping, by definition, with...

Re: Whistleblower

Consensual? Do you really believe that? This kind of position would not be tolerated today in the world, and you expect the church to ignore it?

Harvey would be smiling at you.

Re: How Much To Throw Out?

I continue to occasionally post on threads like this my opinion on the whole Nee/Lee/LSM thing. Drop it all. If it is real, you will find it somewhere reliable.

I did not enter the LRC with no...

Re: The Son not forsaken (as much as we might think)

A lot of drivel follows this that does not address the text as it is found.

John 8:29 is not at the time of the crucifixion, therefore the fact that Jesus says that the Father HAS NOT left him...

Re: Movies and the Church

30 minutes of previews? Give me a break. I know that it often seems like it, but I've never seen even close to 30 minutes of previews.

Re: Politics and the Church

Had to comment on the Fake News Awards.

When it was announced that DT was going to do them, one of the late night hosts determined that it should be the funniest event ever since DT can't stand...

Re: Politics and the Church

Only if 40 others go along with him. That means that 41 people can shut down the country.

And yes, Chucky can be hiding within those 41. But he cannot do it single-handedly.

Re: The Vision of the Age, the Ministry of the Age, and the Minister of the

Indy,

I continue to understand your thought here. And it does not address the Body, but instead a rather small collection of assemblies within a tremendously larger body of Christ. From this...

Re: What is the boundary of the Local Church?

It is an exercise in semantics. And for the LRC, an exercise in equivocation.

The term "church" has many aspects and is not a singular thing. It is the body of Christ, and in that since is...

Re: "God died on the cross."

zeek has hit the nail on the head. This discussion (on both sides of the forum) has resorted to using "God" in a generic sense, and by it has turned the difficult issue of the trinity into a kind of...

Re: Meeting with a Coworker

Actually, it is of dubious value because of the nature and slant of its footnotes. Better to not have footnotes than to have those chosen, edited, or written by Lee.

Re: Politics and the Church

He said "a" low point, not "THE" low point. Therefore, all of the points that you mention can also be low points.

As for the history of the government, the administrative branch in particular, and...

Re: Why Everyone Else is a Denomination

And you are correct. The true church is the totality of the body of believers. It is your group that cuts from it by declaring only yours to be "true church." Therefore the designation "sect' fits...

Re: Politics and the Church

One can only wish. "My way or the highway" has done us absolutely no good for the past 25+ years.

In fact, since virtually all of the John McCains of Congress have been swept from office, we have...

Re: The Sovereignty of God

Wow. You are not as dense as you sometimes act. I think that I said it pretty clearly.

But I am not bewildered. However, I think that sometimes our need to attribute everything to the hand of God...

Re: The Sovereignty of God

While this could be exactly what happened, have you also considered that it could just be an interpretation of your life? That maybe the fact that you were born in the LC is not a different event...

Re: The Sovereignty of God

I left the verse out, but just throwing out verses does not address the question. We truly must trust in the Lord and not lean on our own understanding. But at the same time, our understanding can...

Has anyone considered that our understanding of God's sovereignty and blessing might be misguided? This snippet from John's post provides an excellent example. All of the discussion displays gross...

Re: Scientists are Human Too

I can agree concerning Gandhi. But Mother Theresa? On what basis do you declare that she "likely did not have" faith in Christ? Simply because she was Catholic?

Re: Scientists are Human Too
