L: Leadership

Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.

Proverbs 11:14

There are people in the FOC who think they can logically disprove anything I write about my experience in the group by saying, “Nope, that’s not us. Your family was just weird.” Or, “How would you know what we were taught…”. You get the picture. They don’t want me talking about the group, so they try to claim that I don’t know anything. And even if their claims were accurate, they bring up a really serious issue: leaderlessness.

What happens when you get a group of twelve hundred to two thousand people and nobody’s in charge? According to the scriptures, the people fall. After more than forty years, what has happened to this group? The people have their “pet doctrines” -  a fact that was prophesied by the late Walter White. The members argue, bicker, and disown each other. Young people suffer and die. And can you get a straight answer on why these dearly held practices and beliefs continue? No. Every group, church, organization, and family needs leadership.

Where there is no vision, the people perish.
Proverbs 29:18


  1. leadership is must but there shud always be one leader :)

    1. I agree. And that one leader needs to be Christ!

  2. Leadership is important, but I think it needs to be the right kind of leadership. A good leader cares about the group and looks out for the members' best interests. A poor leader uses his/her power/influence selfishly, for him/herself and/or his/her "friends" and supporters, sometimes at the expense of the group. So, I'm not sure which is worse: no leadership or poor leadership.

  3. The mere fact the FOC tries to discredit you they must have some feeling of shame or regret.You spent the first 21 years of your life immersed in false doctorine.Thankfully you found the true way.

    Leaderlessness is that no one wants to assume any responsibility for their actions. It's easier to point fingers and throw stones.
    Beware of false prophets,from what I understand the FOC epitomises that.

    All groups especially churches need a leader.That of course should be Christ. Then for him to call his servant or servants to sheperd the flock. ACCORDING TO HIS WORD

  4. I so agree! One of the best programs I was involved with in college was the leadership program. Unaffiliated with religion or any clubs but just leadership. We were able to take away and join any program and or church or anything with the tools to lead! GREAT POST!
