Anyone who knew the saints in the church in Berkeley during those days can testify we were crazy lovers of Christ and each other.Then,an unusual event happened a few years after we arrived.Bro.Lee had sent some "new elders"to the church in Berkeley without telling the original elders.

Psalm
11:2 For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.
11:3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?

Psalm
12:1 Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.
12:2 They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak...
12:8 The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.

14:6 Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge.

Psalm
15:1 LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
15:2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.
15:3 He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.

I would add to this testimony that God will not leave your soul in hell (Ps 16:10). These experiences try you as gold is tried in the furnace. If you are faithful to the Lord He will keep you

17:9 From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.
17:10 They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.
17:3 Thou hast proved mine heart;

Also, these experiences give us an opportunity for our faith to grow.

Psalm
18:29 For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.
18:30 As for God, his way is perfect:

(Post Script: these quotes were mostly from Psalms that were sub standard by Witness Lee's opinion, all except Psalm 18. I wonder why.)
