Is this really a dead topic
I’m attempting to resurrect that is better left dead?
Hi JJ, I think I started this "early Lee -- later Lee" paradigm in an attempt to explain the changes which took place in Lee's ministry. Over time, I realized that both Darby and Nee also also had changes in their ministries in a similar way. The many changes which I used to define this transition could be summarized as a "power grab."

Many posters, however, pushed back on my ideas, including our beloved moderator. How dare I say that WL was ever good? They provided evidence, such as the book you mentioned, to contradict my views. My ideas were developed to help explain why I came here in the first place, i.e. "how could something so good become so bad?"

Admittedly things were not perfect in the beginning, but the blessing of God and the anointing Spirit were definitely present, not because of Lee, but because of His children seeking Him. It's really a shame that Lee tried to take credit for the glory of God, and in doing so, ended up destroying what ever good was there.
