Why the disparity between what's spoken for public consumption and what's internal? Reminds me of WL telling the Seattle newspaper reporter, "Here, we are so free" whilst Ray Graver was telling Bill Mallon, "Here we do what we are told."
One of Apostle Paul's boldest and greatest statements was spoken publicly, "I have conducted myself in all good conscience before God until this day." (Acts 23.1) This was so exposing and offensive to all the religious hypocrites of his day, that the high priest immediately commanded that he be punched in the mouth.

When he was later brought before the secular rulers, Paul repeated his incredibly godly boast, "I exercise myself to always have a conscience void of offense toward God and man." (Acts 24.16) When continually challenged by the Corinthians, Paul proclaimed, "Our boasting is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in singleness and sincerity of God, not in fleshly wisdom, but in the grace of God, we conducted ourselves in the world, and much more so toward you." (2 Cor 1.12)

Compare this with those who operate at LSM. Take a good, long look at what they say and what they do. How they hire legal teams and public relations experts to spin their behind-the-scenes corruption. Explain why they speak one way to insiders and the opposite way to outsiders. Go read Lee's deposition under oath during those lawsuits. Then be assured that the Blendeds learned all this from W. Lee, who in turn learned all this from W. Nee. The Apostle Paul got so fed up with this kind of duplicitous doublespeak, that he then scolded them, "let your yes be yes, and your no be no." Can you imagine the frustration Paul would have with these wordsmiths at LSM/DCP?

Does this sound like politicians? Of course. Does it sound like fallen ministers caught up in sin? Sure does. Reminds me of the Muslim practice of "taqiyya," which means "that Muslims should generally be truthful to each other, unless the purpose of lying is to "smooth over differences" or "gain the upper-hand over an enemy."
There are several forms of lying to non-believers that are permitted under certain circumstances, the best known being taqiyya (the Shia name). These circumstances are typically those that advance the cause of Islam - in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them.
