Default Nullification of the function of the body members

Fascinating connection between the Sanhedrin's use of fear to silence the gospel and Lee's use of fear to silence his critics. Both were very effective ... for a season.

The proper "functioning of the members" in the Recovery has basically been redefined as their ability to publicly repeat the teachings of Lee. Going back to the Bible directly, without the use of Lee as an intermediary, has been called a "tactic of the enemy." Fear has been installed into the members ... and periodically "refreshed" via quarantines ... that no teaching apart from Lee is at all safe for LC consumption. Any thoughts to the contrary are quickly dismissed as images of Moses' curse on Ham and Meriam's leprosy spring to mind, thus preventing even the notion that Lee might be off in some area.

One of life's greatest aberrations is the belief in the Recovery that the only true functioning members of the body of Christ are the ones proficiently repeating the teachings of Lee.
