Since then I no longer doubt my perceptions of him and his ministry, but I still wonder how much damage can it do long term. The Bible warns repeatedly about idols and false teachers/apostles. No doubt it undermines ones relationship with God. But there's something else I read today that explains a lot. It was written by Igzy I think?

What a cold Christ! Sadly, I see this reflected in decreased confidence and feelings of worthlessness.
To be fair, the love of Christ and of God were talked about, sung about in hymns, and appreciated in the local churches sometimes when I attended meetings from 1978-2015, but the life of God was usually the focus. I even heard Witness Lee put “Christianity” down for talking so much about the love of Christ rather than His life in 1978. Then in the last years of his life (he died in 1998) he began again to talk about the importance of love. Unfortunately love was not exhibited from the leaders (because they didn’t have it modeled towards them by the chain of teachers they followed, rather stern scolding disciplinarians).

Here is a link to a book and short talk by a teacher I just met and heard speak two weeks ago who emphasizes and exhibits God’s great love for us and how it should play out in our love for one another and towards a lost and dying world.
