LC history indicates that at some point WN assumed a position of authority. WL likewise. After WL died, the blendeds claimed to be his 'continuation'. It seems that no one ever really thought to question these assertions of authority, they just accepted it. By the time WL was hiring and firing elders, people had already gotten to the point where they accepted WL's decisions as final.

Even among all those who left the LC, the real questioning came after the fact, sometimes after years of having accepting the status quo. When the blendeds now present themselves as apostles, I think our immediate response is "says who?" They don't like that questioning because within the LC, no one dares to question them. But it's a valid question and one that should be asked right off the bat.

I mentioned already that the larger Christian community doesn't recognize any of them as apostles. Why is that? Maybe because they aren't? After all, their whole claim to fame is their association with WL and being the current torch-bearers of LSM. Well, if that it, then they still haven't even so much as established any kind of credibility as true apostles.
