Aron, I agree with you.

Unfortunately, Witness Lee's imagination was not limited by his views on Christianity. What about these statements:

“...the entire Godhead, the Triune God, became flesh.”26

“The Father was expressed among men in the Son, and the Son became the Spirit to come into men. The Father is in the Son, and the Son became the Spirit.”27

“...the Lord Christ is the Spirit and the Spirit is the Lord Christ....”28

“The Father is not only the Father, but is also the Son.”29

“...God the Father is also the Spirit (John 4:24). Hence, all three Persons of the Godhead are the Spirit.”30

“...the Lord Jesus who is the Son is also the Eternal Father.”31

No wonder the LRC lost its lawsuit against Harvest House Publishers and the authors of the Encyclopedia of Cults and New Religions. Wish members of the Lord's Recovery church knew more about the lawsuit and the reasons why their organisation lost the case.
