  1. As of just a few years ago, the term "believer" had devolved to mean someone standing with TWI. This is what was promulgated from the upper levels. But we did have some individuals in my fellowship that understood there were believers all over the world that had nothing to do with TWI.
  2. I considered doing this but then determined, since I wasn't really with them in the first place, it wasn't my place. I just basically stopped interacting with them. And it's true, they still hold VPW in high esteem, and they do still teach his teachings, albeit phrased a little differently sometimes. Thankfully, while I was still listening to their teachings, they had stopped teaching the most bizarre aspects, like breathing in to receive holy spirit. And it is also true they have retained their reverend titles - reverend of what? I wonder. And probably the most irritating aspect, which is the main reason I lost interest, is it's the same core group that do the teachings, teaching what they think everyone needs to hear.
  3. Not making it publicly known would be a strange way to try to get money from people. Don't you think?
  4. You have to be ready, willing, and able to read between the lines. Oh, and I'm curious, have they denounced Rico and his business model? So then, they aren't.
  5. I guess not. Would you be more specific? Where are they asking for money?
  6. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Right?!?! How absurd.
  7. I really don't care what Rico's teaching is about. He is not R&R. In fact, I don't really care much about the R&R teachings, either.
  8. Grace, it seems you think I'm referring to the R&R group, but my statement was in reference to TWI. WW, even though I'm not truly following the R&R group, they still haven't asked anyone for any money. However, just this evening I took a look at their web site to see what's been happening over the last few months. And, surprisingly, it no longer requires a password. I'm pretty sure my browsers aren't storing the password - I tried Firefox and Chrome - but just to make sure, maybe someone here would like to test it. Here's the link: https://revivalandrestoration.org/teachings
  9. The phrase you quoted was from me, and I never stated nor implied following these people, or any other mainstream ministers. I believe what Jesus Christ said, that the comforter [spirit] would guide us into all truth. That doesn't mean I never ask people if they understand a verse better than I do, but I look for that holy guidance from above. So, yes, the bible does, and always will, contain all we need to live a Godly life. The life principles in the bible can be applied to any and all situations. It isn't dependent on what the new technology is or standard of living is, no matter how complex.
  10. I'm inclined to agree. I'm convinced the actual Word of God is too expansive to be contained in what we now call the bible. But it contains all we need to live a Godly life - 2 Peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: While I'm sure there are other things involved in these "all things", we have enough of His Word to enable this.
  11. Alright everyone, I have an update on the progress of the R&R group. After becoming aware of them in May of 2017, and following their progress from a disorganized group to a somewhat organized group, I have reached the conclusion that what several of you have said is correct along these points: There is not a single individual controlling the group, it is a handful of people controlling the group. And they are tightly knit. There is basically a handful of regulars that do the teachings, with the occasional cameo appearance of someone fairly close but not in the true inner circle. They are following the teachings of VPW almost entirely, with some modifications here and there, and they all praise VPW almost without exception. There hasn't been any interest expressed as to what we are interested in hearing more about, or topics of interest at all. While many of the teachings are well done, few have any real relevance to me, and some of them aren't good at all, wandering around a topic like the teacher has no real direction. My situation is unique, and they are just blowing their own horns, showing what they know about a particular topic because that's what they feel like teaching. I had stated clearly before that I was keeping them at arm's length, and now I see they have nothing to offer me. Going forward I will have nothing to add because I am no longer following them at all.
  12. It sure looks like an advertisement to me. Observe this line: That's obviously NOT a search for the one person that had a question about Stowe.
