Re: Things Learned from LGBTQ+ Discussions

Gotcha, I see. Well, in this case, I would ask that I not be included in the "you guys" since I think I've always tried to separate them. While there are "two sides" on this issue on this thread,...

Re: LGBTQ, in LC and Beyond.

Yeah, I assume the PM's are going crazy right now. Internet forums are killer because people forget they are interacting with an actual other person. They say things they would never say to their...

Re: LGBTQ, in LC and Beyond.

Hmm...I can't anymore either. Maybe UntoHim saw us talking about the glitch and edited things on the back end to fix it. Hopefully so!

Re: Things Learned from LGBTQ+ Discussions

Of course, anyone can chime in. I remember Ohio insinuating that also, but that still seems to be claiming an certain act (cheating) is a choice, versus claiming that having attractions to both...

Re: LGBTQ, in LC and Beyond.

Adding to her post was not to antagonize, but to demonstrate what I was talking about. If I tried to tell someone that I could edit THEIR post, I would have sounded crazy. I thought I was going...

Re: We should do something

Unregistered,

I agree that any church kid looking for help or answers would be scared off right now. I am, however, so happy to know another ex church kid is on the forum, and am glad you piped...

Re: Things Learned from LGBTQ+ Discussions

Can you point me to a post on the threads where Ohio, StG, or I have claimed outright that being gay is a choice? I don't actually recall that being stated. I don't believe it, so I know I wouldn't...

Re: LGBTQ, in LC and Beyond.

SerenityLives, I have no desire to go around editing anyone's posts. I didn't change what Love said, just added to it so I could best show what I was trying to describe and what was possible. Don't...

No, wait, Love, we are in agreement. I don't think you read carefully what I said....not sure. My statement was this: "I agree with you that it is ridiculous to conclude that just because ...

Re: LGBTQ, in LC and Beyond.

The distinction between desire/attraction and actions is one I've made over and over on these two threads. I agree with you that it is ridiculous to conclude that just because homosexual sex is a...

Re: We should do something

Exactly. If the truth and facts are what "corrupts" the local churches.....what does that say about what the local churches are protecting or trying to hide?



ExChurchKid,

So glad you...

Re: Shepherding Words "From The Co-Workers In The Lord's Recovery"

Re: We should do something

Hmm....I haven't read Duddy's book, so I don't know the approach he took. No "look inside" options on Amazon either! As far as real people and real experiences, what you are describing sounds a...

Re: Thoughts On The Libel Suit?

Holy smokes everyone.

ExChurchKid has been pretty clear about where she is right now related to God. Let her be there.

If she wants to ask questions about God, she can do so, just like I did...

Re: We should do something

I'm glad you feel validated. You're feelings are, as I said, very normal.

Since there are some misunderstandings on the forum at the moment, let me say this up front here before I ask my next...

Hey ExChurchKid,

Yeah, makes total sense, and I understand. Thanks for sharing and explaining. Your thoughts are very normal given what you've grown up in and been through. I was right...

Re: Thoughts on the libel suit?

I daresay that the reason the Lord lead you out in the 1980s (in other words, what He was saving you from experiencing) is probably the very reason the church kids who were born then and/or grew up...

Re: POLL: What is the Greatest Error of WL & LC?

How else would they fulfill Witness Lee's teaching that each local church be identical in color and outward appearance? The requisite chairs' quiet golden glow in every meeting hall must do the...

Re: Shepherding Words "From The Co-Workers In The Lord's Recovery"

Co-workers: "we should not restrict how God communicates to man."

Also co-workers: "we must be restricted in one publication. Witness Lee only. All others are poison."

Re: Politics and the Church

The scribes in Mark 2 weren't demanding repentance. They were affronted because they said "only God can forgive sins", and by Jesus proclaiming that the paralytic's sins were forgiven, in their eyes...
