Default True Christianity

I had the pleasure of attending the annual Christian Leadership Alliance conference this week and felt compelled to share.

The conference is a three day event with Christian leaders coming from around the world to share what God is doing through the ministries and to listen, learn, and worship with others longing to see Christ glorified and proclaimed to the ends of the earth. Organizations as large as World Vision to small ministries unknown to most of the world were gathered together. There was no talk of denominations, no division among those I met, actually, quite the opposite.

The conference was a good reminder that Christ is moving in a real and powerful way through SO MANY Christians today by the grace and power of His might - these brother and sisters not bound by the chains of LSM. Witness Lee and his ministry condemn and badmouth my family in Christ still to this day, the prevalence and persistence in this attitude and creed makes you wonder if it is being done intentionally to keep those from finding true freedom through Christ.

To those trapped within the LSM - Christ's love is REAL and He has invited you to partake in His banquet, in His work, and find delight in Him. There are REAL Christians, not putting on the nature of a man (speak like Lee, think like Lee, dress like Lee) but putting on the nature of Christ. You can have a REAL conversation about His glory and what He is doing in your life - you don't need to read and regurgitate the words and thoughts of Witness Lee.

Grab a Lee free bible, get on your knees, open the Scripture and let His Spirit breathe His life. If you know the gift of God, you will ask him, and he will give you living water.

I'm curious, how many of the Christian leaders spoke about the increase of Christ for the building up of the Church? Or was it mostly about what Christ did practically for them and their ministry.

Not surprisingly, that was a key theme throughout the conference. If youíre focusing on yourself or your ministry, youíve got it backwards.

Great post! Thanks for sharing. It's to feel like their isn't much of the building of Christ going on in the world today. It seems there is so much fake stuff around and so much evil. Glad you thought it went well. One question. Were some of the famous pastors who are known to be in serious errors there or were those in serious errors not there?

Iím not exactly sure who youíre referring to, and I donít know all who attended... but if I was a betting man, Iíd bet my next paycheck the answer is no. Most (if not all) of those in attendance youíve probably never heard of. Just co-laborers in Christ - not hot shot all stars like Osteen or Bell.

Thanks! Ostend and those like him are who I was talking about. Any place that one can get a write up/report of what happened and what was talked about? It sounds like it would maybe be some great building stuff to read!

Iím not sure if they have anything like that, maybe check their website?

My post was not to point to any man made organization or ministry and how great they are, but how great our God is. Heís working through regular Joeís and Josephineís all around the world right now! Those stuck in the LSM need to know that these things are real and free for the taking. Rejoice and be glad!
