Default Re: The Lord is not going to build His church by the method of lying

I think a lot of the problem with the LC is that they are absolutely convinced that they have a special "vision" and purpose. Among those in the LC who are the most dedicated to those supposed ideals, it seems that they are constantly frustrated at the lack of interest in, and opposition to what the LC stands for. They just can't bring themselves to understand why the general public or other Christians could care less about the LC.

As long as people in the LC remain convinced of what they stand for, it becomes clear why in their minds, the end justifies the means. In order to be willing to lie or be deceptive, I would think that they would have to be fully convinced of what they are promoting.

Even in my own experience, that was one of the things that caused me to start questioning the LC. When I was the president of a Christians on Campus club, I just could not get past the fact that they wanted to hide their affiliation with the local churches. Even though at that point in time I was supportive of the LC's, I couldn't see how lying justified anything that the LC was trying to accomplish. I eventually stopped participating for that very reason. It was dishonest.
