Are The Disciplines?
It will be noticed that the disciplining authority only
extends to trusted servants appointed by the Assembly and does not extend
to the congregations. While congregations may come and go as they chose,
or may be asked to go if they threaten the Assembly as a whole, there is
no authority to discipline a congregation or any individual member of any
congregation or person who calls himself or herself a SHES.
DISCIPLINARY AUTHORITY DOES NOT EXTEND TO CONGREGATIONS
OR INDIVIDUALS, BUT ONLY TO TRUSTED SERVANTS
