According to what the LCM teaches, what they will refer to as "the flesh" is something synonymous with personality. Individuality is frowned upon, and for a rank and file member to initiate anything is out of the question.

This is something I found to be utterly frustrating in the LCM. On the one hand, the elders would make us feel insignificant, claiming that we were all too passive. Then, when anyone tried to initiative anything, they were there waiting to shoot down the initiative.
