Re: Checklists and Helpful Information

Checklists and Helpful Information I have actually saved my own posts for years; in an IRC chat room this is a continuous process performed by a bot (robot) like in a Bulletin Board (which is what the "BB" of "phpBB" stands for, after all. BB logging, while automatic, as people here have found, can...

Do I need spiritual help to get out of a cult?

Let me share something that I saw with my own eyes. I won't use terminology that means "other" things in other churches. Nearly thirtry years ago, I was a participating volunteer leader in an ad-hoc weekday mens' fellowship group who met at 6.30am in the 1980s in a ramshackle old shed in the main ca...

Re: The Rewritten Testimony of a Former Favoured Agent of Victor Hall

Hullo Charity! So good to read your testimony of what has happened and how you are coming to terms with it. Welcome. May I assume you are a lady? If I'm wrong BR will put me straight!! Remembering the three Gloster Gladiator biplane fighters who helped earn the island and citizens of Malta the decor...

Re: Why Streetcar??

Gillie - I have always appreciated your passion to help those bound and abused. I am so pleased that you have re-connected with Streetcar in this new instance, and look forward to following your contributions and insights. Just to clarify, I too have no interest in debating doctrine. None whatsoeve...

Re: Who will ascend and descend?

I do remember the expression "The Present Truth" and it puzzled me how there could be degrees of truth, tied to calendar dates, perhaps. As an engineer, writing construction or anufacturing specifications on one hand - and checking work done against other specifications, we just rejected work that f...

Re: Who will ascend and descend?

Thank you surprisedby joy, that was helpful, although it does seem a bit of what my dear departed mother would have described as "convoluted"! I'm rather glad I stopped attending before it got so complicated! I might write a note about a quotation ascribed in error to a middle-ages theologian (maybe...

Re: "Not Drawing Back"

As I see it, there is a major problem with manipulating all the plebs (and dismissing arbitrarily those who don't agree) is that there needs continual rewriting what the apostle Paul calls "another gospel" in his epistle to the Galatians. This means stating that God keeps changing His mind as well, ...

Re: Who will ascend and descend?

Hello surprisedbyjoy, I'm not familiar with what I think you are referring to. It reminds me of "Jacob's Ladder" in the OT and is perhaps current RFI teaching, many changes and years after I left what were called "Vision One" teachings then which seemed less "way out" back then! "Clergy" is an inter...

Re: Shunning

Good points chaps. You may also like to read up about "Battered Sheep" . Well worth it. Many people have exposed this area, not just the particular clicque we write about here. You will find a great post about "Whose ministry is it really?" I am writing a section on my "www.wildernesschristianity.ne...
