I perfectly warned about my use of metaphor.
But seriously...Listening to Theimites, the Colonel did away with the Choir because they were trying to usurp HIS POWER. And he managed to write songs as well....that as a singer at times I cannot harmonize to in more ways than one. He was a Scientist, Writer, Minister, Relationships Therapist, Composer, Man of Mystery, and The Colonel..."I'm IT" Unfortunately, though confidence is what makes a leader, arrogance is what makes isolation and demogogary. It can be so intimidating to members in the Community that their gifts become truncated. And the "schizoid" blah came racing out of my keyboard after his son made a very moving, reading a personal letter from a member of Berachah who had a great deal of Impersonal love for his wife (the lesson), putting up with her wild episodes for many years as a schizoid, then developing Alzheimer's, going into detail about the different stages of the disease and describing it as a gift.
I failed to mention that he went into detail back in the day that Electro Shock therapy was used to treat this mental illness.
When I am on the offensive, I just switched it from a letter from a man regarding his wife but a wife having a great deal of impersonal love for her husband subbing the Colonel bbing that after that class. (sorry. all of us are sinners at times and try to stretch things to try to find an excuse for behavior and sympathy for the wife rarely mentioned..."A nod to Mothers" direct quote was given to her by her son on Mother's day. I bb'd about that too..I am wandering. A million apologies. This is freestyle but I write in many styles. And I am learning a lot from just joining this forum.)
I found it an odd "personal" announcement and letter read as this was the first time I ever witnessed anything as personal, "A personal (underscored personal) letter read to the Congregation.....
It can't be proven Truthtesty.
The Choir, though, according to Theimeites was cut out as "they were trying to usurp the Colonel's power" and instead a huge dry erase board hangs in front of all the seats so that left lobes and right lobes, and insulting diagrams regarding faith, and some good stuff about hebrew/greek words written regarding particular scriptures written....BUT
"Okay you don't have it do you!!!? Epinosis of doctrine enters the left lobe of the brain where it? You don't get it do you!!!!!? You have to be filled with the Holy Spirit and then daily intake of doctrine. You see, epinosis of doctrine enters the left lobe of the brain where it becomes resident in the right lobe? You don't get it do you!!!??? You have so much Scar Tissue On The Sou (big pause for effect)l the Holy Spirit can not enter. Rebound! First you have to metabolize doctrine. Now, the greek transitive verb the Apostle Paul is referring to in Corinthians 13: 1.456789 for 6 days looks like this." This repetition is in every lesson for the most part....And these are the terms the Theimeites present or pridefully recite or lash with... Meanwhile, I am reading the Bible taking notes, reading the footnotes that compromise much of lessons that are less prepared than others but I give him a break...Three times a week. Gave me time to observe others.
Anyways....I can't prove everything but I can report what I gathered, show analysis, and write in many styles. Not just free-style.
I believe the Colonel, the method, the Cult of Personality fed by Cult followers, practices, usurped Jesus Christ's message and that is unacceptable. It's not a rationalization for aggressive writing, using metaphors or spinning to assert but I do what I do.
I am not an alarm clock but I see trends...
