Re: Justification for One City-One Church dogma?

See, here you're conflating "the church" with "expressions of the church". There can be people who meet separately, and still be all members of the same universal church, even if they don't...

Re: Blatant contradictions

Re: Justification for One City-One Church dogma?

That's a good point, the LCs like to play with semantics, claiming that they can still uphold the one city-one church idea while splitting into "districts". Just because they use the terms "locality"...

Re: Blatant contradictions

I've attended churches before which I would genuinely call non-denominational, and they are nothing like what goes on at the LCs. Generally services take place in someone's home, a community center...
