Default Poor Brothers !

We who are used to the church life are truly under Godís blessing, not only spiritually and mentally, but even physically. All of the church people are so healthy because they are under Godís blessing through the church life. Many of the church people can testify that before they came into the church life they were weak and sickly. Many were sick mentally, but after being in the church life they became sober and healthy. This is the blessing. This blessing comes as a result of offering Christ to God through the cross.

Sisters, if you want to be healthy, you need to experience Christ and to offer Him to God through the cross. If you live this way for awhile, you will see how strong you will be and how mentally sober you will become. Every young sister who lives this way will be healthy both mentally and emotionally. Most young women are sick either emotionally or mentally. No psychiatrist can help them. However, if you live the church life, the very Christ whom you offer to God will heal you. He is better than any psychiatrist. Do not go to a psychiatrist - come to Christ and offer Him to God. Then you will be healthy, sober, and emotionally balanced. Since the church life is the proper life, it brings in Godís blessing. Peace, joy, love, sympathy, kindness, normal living - all are signs of such a blessing of life which comes by the experience of Christ
through the cross.

Witness Lee, Life-Study of Genesis
The problem I have with what he wrote here is he left out THE BROTHERS!! Poor Brothers! What? They don't suffer from mental problems??? They don't see pyschiatrists? They're automatically emotionally balanced, sober and healthy when they get saved? Please.

Now there is truth as we IMMERSE ourselves in the Presence of God through His Word, dying to self, praying for each other, fellowshipping with each other which includes being FRIENDS in CHRIST..real FRIENDS where we know each other and our families. Where we can confide in one another..we ARE HEALED emotionally, physically and above all spiritually!!

Lee simply said, had a TERRIBLE way of expressing himself!!
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
(Luke 21:36)
