Happy to say that after Grover's instruction I am posting my first blog.
Watchman Nee was an amazing person, a true apostle of our Lord. But after he wrote just one book, The Spiritual Man, he decided that writing books was not what God meant for his ministry. All of the rest of his books, and there are many, were put together by editors from notes and texts of messages Nee had given. Love Not The World was first published in 1968, just four years before Nee died in prison, where he had been for twenty years, for his evangelism. As an ironic note, Nee left his ministry in 1939 for nine years to manage a pharmaceutical company for an ill cousin. Despite the fact that he gave many jobs to impoverished Christians, some of his colleagues turned their backs on Nee, thinking he had gone over to the world.
I have recently been focusing on the Hebrew nature of the New Testament, and I may try to add some of that flavor to our contemplations here. We will try to cover one chapter of Love Not The World per week, perhaps starting one week from today (on 10/06/13). I will post a brief synopsis and a few comments and will be eager to see the thoughts of others. May the Lord bless this venture. h
