Default Re: Minoru Chen is filled with Witness Lee's spirit?

I was reading today in Luke- the beloved physician, Luke 13, where he writes about a woman in the synagogue having a "a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raise herself up". Jesus heals her, loosing her from her infirmity. A squabble rises because it was done on the sabbath, and Jesus says "16So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound—think of it—for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath?”

I'm not trying to give a bible study, but only personal thoughts; I have no insight that would reveal the nature of the spirit world. But it seems to me that the spirit that possessed Lee was one of making a business out of the things of God, which involved setting himself up as someone special and unique and holding special powers from God. Peter ran across a similar person/spirit in Acts 8, and Paul in Acts 13 with Bar-Jesus. It would seem to me that if Minoru feels he has the spirit of Lee, that he is being possessed with that thinking he is someone special, with an overwhelming desire to make merchandise of God's word and God's people.
