Of course that was silly, because there are actually different views on anything. There are thousands of different views about the Bible and it is interpreted in as many different ways, as there are people who have opinions about it. Friday night Bible study ministers of the Worldwide Church of God, were not God, but they gave the impression that they were infallible and inerrant and spoke for God, every time they opened their mouth. Sheep are always fleeced and their wool used by the shearers. In the case of the WCG, the ministers were the shearers, who fleeced the flock and the bah bah sheep were clueless.
No pastor of a church wants sheep-like church members to THINK for themselves, because they are all bottle fed. Any church member who does think for himself, will eventually exit the doors where he has been captive and never return, because living in the confined quarters of a box, called "church", is a prison of the mind. The prison guard is the pastor, who is also the gatekeeper to what you are allowed to think. Every minister is limited in his thinking by his denominational indoctrination and his mind travels in an endless circle to nowhere.
All WCG splinter group leaders travel down the same road of thinking they have God-like status over their sheep-like members. They are all extremely self-deceived. If the only input into your thinking over a long period of time, is that of the "pastor" of your church, then you are a clone. Clones cannot reason or think, they only imitate or react on how they have been cloned. Even the ministers of the WCG splinter groups themselves are clones and they parrot how they have been schooled to think. It is a road that travels in an endless circle of stunted mental growth and never coming to the knowledge of truth.
The whole organized church system, which is the pastor-dominated control church world, is a world of anti-intellectual, anti-thinking, anti-reasoning world of pastor worship. For pastors of churches it is always "my way or no way." I guess preachers never read Matthew 23 and even if they do, they always apply it to everyone but themselves.
If you are a sheep-like church member, then your thinking is a product of the man or woman who stands in the pulpit and writes upon your brain what he or she says "truth" is, even when they are often very wrong. The bah bah chorus of church sheep is deafening.
