  1. There will also be people who will refuse to agree with your understanding of something in the Bible that you emphatically hold true but may indeed be your misunderstanding. Just sayin'. Pride goes before the fall. See Proverbs 16.
  2. Okay... but just in case you may have missed it, there's Matthew 7:1 1“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
  3. "Trust me you have to change your attitude to one of meekness and obedience like Moses and become humble to God's word if you want his blessings." What about Matthew 5:44-45? 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. Trust me, Waxit, you may or may not have the final word on what pleases God and what doesn't.
  4. Am I understanding your intent Waxit to be that if anyone disagrees with your understanding, they somehow aren't "in fellowship" with God? Or some variation on that theme? Or perhaps you meant to ask which part of any of them does anyone understand differently than you?
  5. In case anyone gets confused, Donnie here is Don Wierwille, not Fugit who was referenced in the previous quoted paragraph.
  6. But instead of standing shoulder-to-shoulder with fellow congregants — Fink in her Paradise Valley synagogue, Lucero in her Catholic parish in Glendale — the women, and millions of others, now worship via television, YouTube, Facebook or Zoom. For people of all faiths, prayer has taken on a new solitude. ---- This time I am suggesting alternatives.
  7. That's certainly one option, but not necessarily the only one. I "said what I meant, and meant (only) what I said." I've been reading up on the history of pandemics, notably the 1918 Spanish Flu. Anyone not living under a rock knows by now of the concept/practice awkwardly titled social distancing. I wanted to get more understanding than simply accepting what we're hearing on broadcast news, or in print journalism.
  8. Except that most of the time, people who took the PFLAP class and clung to him and his organization did so primarily because of the illusion that he projected and the fact that they (we) wanted to BELONG to a social CULTure that had such noble ideas and "practices."
  9. Nevertheless, keeping physical distance (6 feet) from each other is the MOST important thing we can all do to limit the reach of the virus in this pandemic.

    bad advice

    excellent point. We here at GSC are kinda close socially, but not physically.
  11. "Wade would have been 30 or 31 years old..." Not necessarily to split hairs, but I don't think Wade wrote the things on his website recently. My guess is that he may have been four or five years older in 1970... 50 years ago. But yes, he clearly was his own man. So arguments can be made either way on the question of whether he's got another offshoot. I lean toward that Wade's ministry is not one.
  12. Interesting website, including the page "About the Wades." He doesn't get into why he parted ways, which fits with what he calls his ministry these days, Positive Word Ministries Inc. Wade does, however, use TWI jargon to some degree. "In 1965 Peter Wade went to the United States to attend a three-month Summer School at The Way Biblical Research Center, which was then a non-denominational teaching organization. “His abilities, depth of perception, and conviction were immediately noticeable. Upon his return to Australia and the pastoring of a pioneering work at Taperoo, South Australia, he put into practice all the principles he had been taught and mightily convinced the believers of the fullness of Christ’s work and the accuracy of God’s Word.”" He's also on YouTube
  13. Wouldn't that be wonderful. Yet, 45+ years hence, it's not likely. There's so much I know now that I'd love to ask my parents about from the 50s, 60s, 70s... but my parents have both passed as have my two younger siblings. Sigh. But we do have this record (GSC and several first hand accounts of things) from which we can draw reasonable inferences. And now that we're in our 60s and older, we can and must make those inferences. To that end, we tell our stories. Stories being the most human things we can pass along to our progeny. Thanks for yours my GSC friends.
