Default Re: Co-workers In The Lordís Recovery Declare Themselves as APOSTLES!

The apostles labor among and minister to the churches as a whole and appoint elders in the local churches . Elders administrate a local church and shepherd the saints in its locality. The elders have the responsibility to deal with problems among saints in their locality. Problems that are extra-local, that involve elders, or that a local eldership is unable to resolve may be dealt with by the apostles
The statements that they make expose their hypocrisy. In their article on hierarchy and organization, they argue that LSM is not a headquarters and that there is no organization among the local churches. That stands in direct contrast to this new claim that the so-called coworkers are apostles. Specifically, because the larger Christian community does not recognize them as such.

What is the common denominator between the coworkers and the local churches? It's LSM and the adherence to the ministry of WL. Within the local churches under LSM, the coworkers might very well indeed be viewed as apostles. That doesn't mean that they are. That just means that the collection of local churches following LSM and WL's ministry are indeed an organization that exists as a hierarchy with men at the top claiming to be apostles.
