Speaking the Truth in Love

The subtitle, "A True Acount of Event & Concerns Related to the Local Churches 1987-1989" alerts the astute reader about an alternative, "official" account of these same events. John Ingalls carefully documents the lengths to which he, and other "concerned brothers", went seeking to rectify the situation. However, John and others were "side-swiped" by an abrupt change in tactics which saw them as "conspirators" and "rebellious ones", accused of being in league with the Devil, and "speaking perverted things". A litany of accusation appeared in the book "Fermentation of the Present Rebellion" published by the Living Stream Ministry (1990) under Witness Lee's name and freely distributed through LSM's distribution network. Meanwhile Maoist-style denunciation meetings attacked John Ingalls & Co during LSM's regular training - sessions expounding the Scripture - a combination which ought to be an oxymoron for any "Christian ministry".

The Relationship between Living Stream Ministry
and the Local Churches

LSM’s role is not to exercise leadership in the ministry in the Lord’s recovery; it is to cooperate with the ministering brothers to supply the churches with spiritual food and with resources to spread the work. The ministering brothers likewise do not exercise control over the churches. Brother Lee said that if his ministry exercised any form of “control,” it was of the kind that a loving mother exercises over her children when she feeds them. If she prepares a tasty and nutritious meal and then calls her children to dinner, they will come not under compulsion but willingly. The vast majority of saints in the Lord’s recovery have developed a taste for the ministry of Watchman Nee, Witness Lee, and the co-workers in the publications of Living Stream Ministry, and they choose to receive that ministry not under compulsion but because they recognize in it “the stewardship of the grace of God”.
