I definitely heard Lee say, "anyone can get people saved, but who can raise them up?" This pathetic distortion of the truth implied that over all the earth only Witness Lee was actually "raising people up."
It's systemic. Something gets spoken from the platform regarding Graham and brothers and sisters are so quick to accept it without exercising a sober consideration.
An older brother I've known since 1973 echoed similar sentiments while in the local churches. Once he was out of the LC environment, attitudes changed towards Billy Graham and others of the Lord's servants.
