Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Witness Lee?

Recommended Posts

So, I am on the mailing lists of a gazillion religious organizations and charities, so I receive a lot of material mailed to me; some requested, some not. Some of it is within my faith tradition (Anabaptist), while some of it is not, including something in the mail today. Today I received a small parcel of books from authors named Witness Lee and Watchman Nee. The names did not ring a bell, so I google searched on it and .... I'm not sure about this. Some of the information looks to be good, while others are pretty cultic.

 

Anyone familiar with these authors or their movement? Is my gut instinct that these are problematic teachers correct or should I read the books? Thank you.

A good place to find out about teachers who may be false is apologeticsindex.org. I looked up Witness Lee and Watchman Nee on this site and here is what I found.

Apparently your gut instinct is right about both of them.

Yikes. Yah, these books will get toss or set aside. Thanks for the links. I've now bookmarked Apologetics Index. Thanks for the resource.
