Default Re: How do you leave without making a scene?

How do you leave (the LC) without making a scene? I don’t know that you can.

Here’s a question: what other Christian church or churches require that you surrender your freedom to walk with the Lord where ever he may lead...including walk away from a Christian church? How did you get yourself in this position in the first place, that you need to ask “how do I leave?”

We all did it. We all freely committed ourselves, consecrated ourselves, to Christ and the church, and we made other vows and oaths to the ministry of Witness Lee. We thought we were following the Lord and giving ourselves, heart, soul and mind, to Jesus. Yet, here are some verses on that topic.

Matt. 5:33-37
33 “Again you have heard that it was said to those of [m]old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform your oaths to the Lord.’ 34 But I say to you, do not swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35 nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36 Nor shall you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black. 37 But let [n]your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.

One of the first things I did after leaving was to renounce all commitments... anything that could possibly be construed as an oath...to “Christ and the church” because that was an oath to the ministry of Witness Lee. Do not swear at all!

As far as the “without making a scene” part, that’s not likely something you can control. If a scene is made, don’t let it be made by you. Just walk away. Let your Yes be Yes and your No, No.
