Re: My experience as a church kid: Why I want out

Melo,

What do you mean "regain your enjoyment of the Lord?"

Isn't "enjoyment" based on emotion...what feels good? I understand walking by faith. It's not always pleasant, sometimes it is, but...

Re: Need fellowship here

I don’t think there is a formula to follow like an if/then statement that insures all the biblical bases are covered. Further, we cannot force someone else to repent. We are responsible for our own...

Re: Need fellowship here

Your reply is not in question.

The context, as you have quoted, is Chris Watts and his crimes against his family and indeed against society. What about Chris Watts? In which category do you...

Re: My experience as a church kid: Why I want out

Melo,

I'm so sorry for the situation you find yourself in. Witness Lee taught "If you take care of the church, the Lord will take care of your family." I'm sure you've heard this lie before.

Re: Need fellowship here

Your question about love was in the context of Chris Watts.

"The Watts family homicides occurred on the early morning of August 13, 2018, when Chris Watts murdered his pregnant wife Shanann Watts...

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

Speaking as a woman, I could anticipate that she may understand you to mean exactly what you said. Aron, Ohio and your explanation won't mean much to a woman in love.

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

Jmar--

Your definition of marriage is more secular than biblical. Society has an "escape clause" but biblically marriage is until "death do you part". "What God has joined together, let no man put...

Re: Practically engaged to an LCer

Since you asked, I’ll be blunt.

What should you do? Walk away.
Are you on the right track? No.

You’re in “like”. You haven’t given very good reasons to marry her. Instead, you have stated...

Re: Forgiveness

Excellent advice...and don't hold back. It's not like he doesn't know what you're thinking anyway. He already knows what you think and he loves you just as you are.

Re: Forgiveness

Hi Trapped,

After I read your posts #16 and #20, I thought of this old, beloved hymn, "Just as I Am". Your posts might "inspire" the thought "Just as I am, warts and all."

I think every...

If Witness Lee was the Christian he claimed, and what others believed him to be, given the Daystar debacle the minister of the age would have never started Daystar (strike 1). But since he did,...

Re: 3 parts of man

The instance I know of where this actually happened, the brother was an elder. His wife eventually divorced him. Who knows how many times such stupidity occurred.

Re: "sovereign of"

No. They don't use the phrase correctly. However, I never heard "sovereign of" at all before I checked out in the '90's.

Since it isn't biblical, as has been pointed out, it falls in the category...

Re: Forgiveness

Trapped,

Possibly the missing piece is "repentance".

"I'm sorry" is sometimes sufficient, but is very often an expression of regret by the offender telling you how they feel about what they...
