Great post aron.

I remember when preaching the gospel -- which was really preaching the local church life -- and when talking with visitors, stumbling in the conversation with the specific LC nomenclature. We not only had "proprietary teachings," but, "proprietary nomenclature." Part of bringing in a newbie was explaining the inside terminology. Once they understood that, it was hoped, they'll have "The Vision."

In the LSM/Recovery branded local churches -- "The Vision" -- has a very strong gravitational pull, circling Witness Lee. A orbit that can be very hard to pull out of.
