The problem I see is that the biblical tests UntoHim mentioned aren't actually used by most people, so their discernment is wrong. For example, 1 John 4:1 says to test the spirits, but verses 2 and 3 tell us how. Instead of applying such tests, this forum becomes a platform for people to share their "hunch" about Lee's ministry which is based on non-biblical tests such as the test of comparison (e.g. "Lee's calling seems like middle eastern chanting so it must be middle eastern false religion") or some subjective opinion. Hunches become facts, facts become reality, just like the old witch-hunts when they had no better way to discern whether someone was a witch or not other than to see if they floated or sunk.
