We don't know anything about the seven churches in Asia, and if they overcame. They may not have. They're not even there/here today. Something must have prevented them from surviving, or from overcoming.

We can read anything into them ... as Lee liberally did ... and we/you do.

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We're no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It is simply too painful to acknowledge -- even to ourselves -- that we've been so credulous.” - Carl Sagan
