I guess that's not the most interesting sounding topic, but I've been reading William Schnells book "Into the Light of Christianity" and came across something that I thought was totally profound. He says:
"I now know that all cults...interpose an intermediary center for salvation. In this way they sidetrack the true purpose of Christianity, which is, to give the image and likeness of Jesus Christ full play for growth in the individual. The cults eliminate Christ as the center.
In order to create the position of becoming the intermediate center, they must destroy "the form of sound words" and eliminate the gifts appointed to preserve these intact. They must eliminate the positions of pastors, teachers and evangelists by setting themselves up, in their new center of things, as promulgating NEW truths. These truths must be everchanging to maintain a platform of something fresh and new emanating from the NEW center. This must be so to cover up the absence of Holy Spirit. "
This was one of the most profound insights I've heard on the WT structure. I'm really enjoying this book. Has anyone else read it?
