Default Abomination to Jehovah

I think so. Proverbs 17.15 is quite convicting: "He that justifies the wicked, and he that condemns the righteous, Both of them alike are an abomination to Jehovah." The Lord calls what happened with Philip Lee and John Ingalls an "abomination." That's one of those words in the Bible that raises eyebrows, and looking into all the facts surrounding this case, there has never been so obvious a conclusion. Witness Lee condemned the righteous John Ingalls and justified his wicked son Philip. There's just not another way to look at this. Proverbs tells us how the Lord considers these actions by Witness Lee an abomination.

This New Testament verse parallels the proverb -- Titus 1:16 "They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and to every good work reprobate. Witness Lee's works surrounding all the so-called storms in the Recovery now define him.

Let me give another of my bad examples based on recent events in the forefront of national news. Since I was born and raised in Cleveland's west side, perhaps these events are more striking to me, but there is some analogy to be drawn. For years this Castro perp has lived a life apparently well liked by all his peers. He was charming and charismatic to young and old alike. Then one day we all discover that he had locked up a few girls in the basement of his house.

I noticed that no one is now minimizing his "misdeeds" with the usual excuses such as "nobody is perfect, we all make mistakes, give the guy a break, everyone is entitled to a second chance, this is America after all." None such talk. Why? Because young girls got hurt. Over a long period of time. Seriously and irreparably hurt. He schemed and connived his selfish interests at the expense of others' lives. No one will ever look back and say that ole Castro was a great guy, drove a school bus, loved kids, and was liked by everybody. All that will be forgotten. They will only remember the pain of the lives he destroyed.

Such it is with Witness Lee. In order to protect his wayward sons, he was willing to conceive the most horrendous of schemes. He would sacrifice hundreds of God's children, willing to destroy their integrity, in craftiness devising deceptions to ruin them and thus condemn the righteous, while maintaining the singular goal of preserving the family name, even though that family was plagued with wickedness. The Lord called this an abomination. The apostle Paul said that "by their works they deny Him."
