Default Re: Turmoil in the Local Church by Christian Research Journal

There are a few other interesting excerpts from Don's writings that give some insight into Benson's quest for power:
Shortly after we arrived in Houston, Benson announced that there would be a meeting of any brothers who felt the burden to be in the lead of the church. All of the men except for Don Looper and myself attended the first meeting. Don and I had fellowshipped that this was surely not the way of the New Testament and we could not see any New Testament examples where someone put themselves forward as the leader. Did not the Lord declare in Matthew 23:11-12, “But the greatest among you shall be your servant. And whoever exalts himself shall be humbled: and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted”?
Most leaders in the LC's had a way of twisting this around: "I am your humble servant, I have come here to tell you what to do ..."
