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

I wouldn't put much stock in Miller's piece.

1 The piece reads like an A&C piece, which Miller apparently drew from. In some sections he cites quotes from Lee that are supposed to vindicate Lee,...

Re: A Review of Hank's Recent Book.

No I have not. I haven't because he's a popularizer at best. If you read good books and you learn how to find answers, then you don't really need people like that.

As I said in the review, that...

Re: A Review of Hank's Recent Book.

Sons to Glory,

I don't think anyone is trying to give a definition of God. Nor do I think such a thing is possible and I don't think historical figures like say Athanasius or Cyril of Alexandria...

Re: A Review of Hank's Recent Book.

That is because Hank doesn't care. He cares about moving his products to a new group of consumers. That is why the show and everything about CRI is about product promotion. This is why in the past...

Re: Thougths on John C. Myer

Ohio,

So how many congregations did the LC (Anaheim) lose with the midwest break up? About what year was that essentially concluded?

Re: Thougths on John C. Myer

Ohio,

thanks for the info.

What did Titus Chu (I assume by "TC" this is who you intended to denote) expel him for?

And is the mid west still under "quarantine?"

It is ironic to me reading...

Who is the Minister of the Age now?

So here is a question I have trying to think through the LC's teaching. If Lee (and Nee) were the ministers of the "age" and they are both dead, who is the minister of the age according to the LC NOW?

Re: A Christian Seeking Answers

Well, I never said that knowledge was a sufficient condition for being correct. My point was that it helps to weed out all kinds of mistakes, not that it weeds out every kind of mistake. this is why...

Re: A Christian Seeking Answers

Put the matter this way. The reason why have silly sects like the LC is because people put way too much stock in subjective appeals rather than what someone could in fact demonstrate through clear...

Re: A Christian Seeking Answers

Well the former is rather subjective. Second, holiness doesn't make someone knowledgeable. Mary was holy and yet she made mistakes when it came to knowing things. In the realm of knowledge,...

Re: One City One Church, any of the Church Fathers Practice it?

Well an appeal to the Spirit apart from the Incarnate Christ leads to Docetism as well is decoupling spiritual claims from historical veracity. If a group has a recent historical footprint, there is...

Re: A Christian Seeking Answers

Yes, he has a handful of radio stations left. As to Steve Gregg, I have no idea what his qualifications could be. Honestly, if you read good books, then you don't need such persons.

Re: One City One Church, any of the Church Fathers Practice it?

Well, the same faith seems to be the appropriate basis for it. Appeals to the Spirit are subjective and do no work. Besides, both in the NT and the early church and identity of faith was required for...

Re: A Christian Seeking Answers

Yes, Hank was pretty clueless. I worked in the radio studio for about a year so I could see what was happening in real time. Shows had to be edited because Hank made major theological mistakes that...

Re: One City One Church, any of the Church Fathers Practice it?

Well I find the different names quite helpful. I learned over the years to always ask a very simple question. "What church do you go to?" If someone says they are Presbyterian for example, I have a...

Re: One City One Church, any of the Church Fathers Practice it?

Yeah, this idea is not expressed in the church fathers. I've read about 50 volumes now over many years and that idea is not expressed. Even as far back as the time of Polycarp, there would be many...

Here are my cards.

I am an (eastern) Orthodox Christian. I have never been a member of the LC, though I've had a fair amount of conversations with them in Orange County, California.

As to CRI...

Re: "Only the church?"

Well, I think it is more than that.

Obviously Lee, Nee and the rest are 19 centuries too late to claim direct connection with Christ and the apostles. So, if they are going to mark themselves out...

"Only the church?"

Hi,

Often when discussing with LC members when querried about whether they are the only true church or not, they respond with the line that they are "only the church." Obviously this is a dodge.
