Default Re: God doesn't care for right and wrong, only life

Jo Casteel on FB:

They speak so much about only caring for "life" but in recent years I really started noticing how much oppression, darkness, and anger there was in the speaking. I just listened to message 5 from last weeks semi-annual on the "The Water for Impurity." The ENTIRE message was on death and rebellion. It was awful. The saints are under so much fear and oppression.

Here is one direct quote from Mark Raabe, "Don’t listen to speaking that has the element of death. Don’t listen to any speaking that has the element of rebellion. If you do and you might even say, well it’s true. You know what? Like I told you, death has good, evil, and knowledge. You say, It’s factual…yeah part of what the devil spoke to Eve was factual and part of it wasn’t. That’s the way death comes. Death comes in a sneaky way. Death comes in a camouflaged way. You say, well there’s an element of truth to that? Yeah, there’s also an element of death and an element of rebellion. If you want that, you just take in that kind of speaking into your vessel, you will be dead. And, let me tell you, somebody is going to have to spend some time to try to help you out of that death. You can’t get out of it quickly. I just ask you, I know too many saints. Nobody poisoned them. They poisoned themselves. Reading things that they know will cause death. Taking things in that they know includes death and rebellion. Lets for this purpose, let’s close our vessel and tie down the lid. The only thing we let in is life. We let the water in and we don’t let any death in.”


So I guess we can re-write Paul's epistle to the Philippians. Paul wrote, "Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honorable, whatever things are right, whatever things are pure, whatever things are pleasing, whatever things are commendable, if there is any excellence of character and if anything praiseworthy, think about these things." ~Phil 4:8

They don't care for what is true or what is right, only for the "sense of life", which is of course whatever the Blendeds say it is. And hold on to your hats, because like Witness Lee's "flows", "life" can be whatever they need it to be today.

Jesus, on the other hand, consistently "went around doing good". ~Acts 10:38 - remember that's the Author of life. I'd stick with Jesus' example, as shared by Peter's gospel, versus some one's subjective, nebulous, and self-serving sense of "life". I'll take Peter's first-person account, his "low gospel" in Acts, over Witness Lee's "High gospel" derived from the NT epistles.
