Could it be that these issues are only prevalent in some but not all of these sects ? There seem to be many offshoots now, which I list here ( i may have missed some ). Seems unfair to tar all leaders with the same brush. Maybe some are actually anointed but others are not. Anyone know what criteria an person should use in deciding whether a leader is anointed or not ?. Is there some test ?. Is there a biblical reference ? How biblical is this idea anyway>
No, the issues are present in all the branch churches and their leaders, because each leader is under the authority of the main leader of the "Struthers Movement" as they call it. The leaders of the branches have been appointed and trained up by the main leader, both by past main leaders and present, so they are following the same teaching and have similar control which may not be as strong as at the top, but still exists. I've heard of similar problems occurring in all the churches. If one leader veered from the teaching, thy would be spoken to and instructed to obey. So a kind of hierarchy exists. The leaders were always saying how greatly they all worked together in spiritual unity. So the problems and ways of dealing with people who question or don't submit to leadership, pervade the whole movement.
As to being "anointed", that is decided by the top leaders who say they recognise the anointing for leadership and then they appoint whoever God indicates to them. They are accountable to nobody outwith SMC.
