When you soberly look at the 'piss & vinegar' we were drinking at the height of our hysteria, and compare it now with the 'real world', one sees the danger of a certain paradigm being promoted that isolates itself from scrutiny, and what a cancer it can become both to its adherents and the surrounding community.
Yes, isolates itself from scrutiny, but assumes the 'divine privilege' of scrutinizing everyone and everything else. John set the tone with his obsession on judging 'Babylon the Harlot,' the religious system that supposedly preyed on its adherents. Meanwhile, as numerous first-hand accounts shared in this forum attest, he pretty much was a law unto himself. Question him at your own peril. His replacements actually tightened the control over the fellowship once he was gone. Anyway, if you are not allowed to question a leader (in good faith), it's one of the earmarks that you are in a cult.
