On another thread, someone pointed out Galatians 5:20 and the various less-than-divine issues of the flesh, "idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions". Quite a list. But if you want to sum it up, it's not the Lord.

We saw a lot that was not the Lord, in the LC, but we kept our mouths shut because in the LC you keep your mouths shut. Which in itself is not of the Lord. He told us how to deal with sins (Matthew 18; cf 1 Tim 5:19). It was over-ridden by the cultural practices of the LC - "Don't let the Maximum Brother lose face."

Another example of equivocation was that Protestantism was our "goodly heritage" and often waved as a mark of our bona fides, and also was Mystery Harlot Babylon to be dissed at every turn. Sometimes we got both in the same message but everybody pretended not to notice. We got very good at compartmentalising knowledge in the LC. The trick is, never open both boxes at the same time, the "Babylon" and the "goodly heritage" ones. Always keep them isolated from each other.
