Default Re: My Views and Stance on The Recovery

I especially hate the way we walk around thinking that we are it (God's move on the earth) when we are just the same as all the other Christians outside the "church life". I'm beginning to see less and less of a difference between "us" and "them". In the early days (the 60's and perhaps 70's), things may have been different. But now the "recovery" is just another Christian denomination. Period. And a peculiar one.
Actually, I've been meeting with an evangelical denomination for several years, and it is nothing like the "Lord's Recovery." There is a big difference. I now know many Christians who actually are full of love and grace, and who treat people with kindness and tenderness. That was not the case in the Recovery.
