|Randy Shankle & the Church in Marshall|
I have nothing to discuss any more about Randy Shankle and the Church in Marshall at this time.
I can recommend for those interested in the subject Kenneth Hagin's book: He Gave Gifts Unto Men - A Biblical Perspective of Apostles, Prophets, and Pastors.
As for "The Fruit of it's Kind". Nee describes this very teaching and say's if 2 born again christians got married and had a baby, that if they truly were without sin, their baby would be born sinless. It would be a fruit of its kind. This of coarse does not happen. Because, the parents are not without sin.
Watchman Nee proves this further with scripture:
6: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
The word "destroyed" gives the wrong impression, it actually means "unemployed" according to Nee, in Greek.
For a 2nd witness there is this:
The New Testament Greek Lexicon
1) to render idle, unemployed, inactivate, inoperative
a) to cause a person or thing to have no further efficiency
b) to deprive of force, influence, power
2) to cause to cease, put an end to, do away with, annul, abolish
a) to cease, to pass away, be done away
b) to be severed from, separated from, discharged from, loosed from any one
c) to terminate all intercourse with one
The work of the cross, unemploys sin. It is still there, it has been made without working power. But it is still there for you to choose, and choose daily if you so desire. I suggest reading the rest of Rom 6.
I recommend my webpage for similar teachings:

I decided to make a Part 2 to Eldership Rule that discusses in detail in what elders can rule over and what they cannot. You can find this here:

I have decided to make the “Family Forum” service in its entirety available for download. I believe 30 minutes is missing, 20 minutes of no broadcast in the beginning, possibly 5 minutes missed by me at the beginning, and up to 5 minutes at the end where I cut off the announcements.
This is a MP3 file that lasts 2 hours and 41 minutes long. The file is 46 megabytes in size. You can download the file at:
So while my blog is still up, you will probably not find any clips on it.
