I remember, my American advisor once asked me a question I'd never forget: "you used "we" quite a bit in your research paper, not "I""? Then, I realized the concept is somehow born to me since I grew up in an eastern environment. So there is the "blended" and "corporate" concept because voting is not allowed. That might also explain a bit why Witness Lee's teaching is quite "followed" by Chinese and Taiwanese. Of course, ethnic factor plays a role too. My friend "J" is a 100% white male, though, a great servant of God. He is probably the only reason I still not renounce my local church affiliation openly, though I don't meet with them anymore. Yes, brother Aron, I will watch Jesus, watch Him carefully, and knowing Him is my way.
Thanks for mentioning the individualism vs collectivism observation ! Many books have been written about collectivism..and movies too... 1984, Animal Farm, the Matrix and others.

never even considered that aspect of the LC. Lee and maybe Nee confused the unity of the Spirit with collectivism. Never even saw it coming. But it all makes sense now.

Also...ask the Holy Spirit to help you get to know Lord Jesus in a deeper way..that you may enter into a deeper relationship with HIM...trusting HIM, depending on HIM...not so much on people's thoughts. Fellowship and Insight from others is wonderful until we rely on them and not on the HOLY Spirit's guidance.

Showers of God's LOVE and Blessings in abundance to you,
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
(Luke 21:36)
