Speaking the Truth in Love

The subtitle, "A True Acount of Event & Concerns Related to the Local Churches 1987-1989" alerts the astute reader about an alternative, "official" account of these same events. John Ingalls carefully documents the lengths to which he, and other "concerned brothers", went seeking to rectify the situation. However, John and others were "side-swiped" by an abrupt change in tactics which saw them as "conspirators" and "rebellious ones", accused of being in league with the Devil, and "speaking perverted things". A litany of accusation appeared in the book "Fermentation of the Present Rebellion" published by the Living Stream Ministry (1990) under Witness Lee's name and freely distributed through LSM's distribution network. Meanwhile Maoist-style denunciation meetings attacked John Ingalls & Co during LSM's regular training - sessions expounding the Scripture - a combination which ought to be an oxymoron for any "Christian ministry".

» Witness Wednesday
Starting in 1994, Brother Lee in his ministry officially defined the high peak of the divine revelation in the Scriptures; that is, in Christ God became man so that in Christ we the believers who have been born of God may become God in life and in nature but absolutely not in the Godhead and never as an object of worship. I have my father’s life and nature but not his fatherhood. Likewise, we are children of God; we have actually been born of God. Romans 8:16 says, “The Spirit Himself witnesses with our spirit that we are children of God.” God is our Father; He is our source.
