Re: The Prosperity Gospel: Dangerous and Different

Amen,brother ,like Esau they sold their birthright for a ‘mess of pottage’.The poor brethren are untaught and vulnerable to ‘ servants’ who got in unawares and ‘work for hire’( or ‘gifts’)

Re: Exclusive Brethren Fellowship

Uh,no,they didn’t withdraw from US, we withdrew from THEM ,on the basis of ‘2 Timothy 2,’withdrawing from iniquity’ ...and as for ‘being in the Assembly ’ that is NOT for the brethren to extend or take away,MY place in the ‘Assembly’ was secured the moment I accepted Christ as my saviour ..(no, you ...

Re: Exclusive Brethren Fellowship

Further to that, FER clearly stated that ‘there could be no such thing as a special fellowship within a fellowship’.JTsr was at those meetings where FER made that statement and rather than endorcing it, was reputed to waffle ,saying it ‘needed some thought’..I suggest rejecting FER’s teaching was a ...

Re: Man admits stealing from NZ apiarists

Perhaps he was just ‘spoiling the Egyptians ’,that’s just ‘business’,isn’t it?...but it sure looks to me like just another example of the self proclaimed’law abiding ‘ EB openly flouting the law.....and if he was‘disciplined’ by the church, you got to wonder if was it for theft or being stupid enoug...

When I was growing up in the EB in the 50’s it was said that the reason brethren were generally not involved in car accidents was that we had ‘angelic protection’....course that was before brethren became well known for drinking* and flouting the law..terrible tragedy none the less and our hearts go...
