Does anyone know much about the teachings of Watchman Nee?

If I remember correctly Watchman Nee has been brought up in the past on the forums. Perhaps if you do a search you will find it.

Some good, some bad. That's the sum total of my knowledge on him.

Watchman Nee was a Chinese mystic who began a home church movement in China and wrote extensively. He was of the "higher life" persuasion. I have a book of devotions by Watchman Nee, given to me by a friend, and I found it to be less than sound doctrinally. At some point in his ministry he was joined by Witness Lee (a son, nephew, cousin, some relation--I forget) who, from what I understand, took the movement even farther away from orthodox Christianity.

If you do a google search, I'm sure you can find a bunch of stuff on both of them.

I read many of his works years ago. Gotrible has probably the best assessment of his writings that I have seen.

Not specifically. However, I read one of his books about 4 or 5 years ago. It seemed very subjective, and he seemed a bit charismatic. Just personal notes.

My mother, a pentecostal, gave me over a dozen of his books. I would be happy to send you one at my cost. If you are interested, contact me. They will just sit there otherwise.


God bless,

william

Hi Kyle:

Like Joe, I read a number of Nee's books a number of years ago when I was searching into the cause of the deadness and unreality of the "Christianity" I had been taught.

Nee was affected greatly by the Keeswick "higher life" teachings and dabbled in tongues and charismatic teachings under the tutalege of a woman who he saw as a spirital guide for himself. He was Arminian in his views and his own assessment about the nature and quality of his book "The Spiritual Man", which he wrote in his early twenties, is both arrogant and erroneous in my view. The book is full of errors and unscriptural subjectivity, which at the least he should have had the wisdom, if not humility, to recognize and own in his latter years.

I wouldn't read him again, nor would I have read him before, if I had known that what I was seeking was clearly and accurately revealed in the writings of other more eminent men like; Calvin, Bunyan, Goodwin and Edwards.

In Him,

Gerry
