Power is what men seek and any group that gets it will abuse it.
Lincoln Steffens, American Journalist
I’ve been pondering the use of scriptures about submitting to authority lately. It is interesting how proficient the leadership at Sound Doctrine/WinePress was at drilling those scriptures into our heads. It resulted in a group of people who never question or actually use their God given critical thinking skills to consider the red flags that continue to pop up.
It’s a crime when leadership like this make their followers feel they are the ones who are wrong for questioning, and even worse when they abuse the power they have to prey on young victims who cannot defend themselves.
For Thou are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness.
No evil dwells with Thee.
The boastful shall not stand before Thine eyes;
Thou dost hate all who do iniquity.
Psalm 5:4-5 NASB
