As much as this religious belief system is...umm, well, I can't think of a sufficient adjective. Nonetheless, the article as it stands is a pure description of the Local Church of Witness Lee; OW requires articles about heterodox and other religions to be primarily focused on a comparison or the relationship between Orthodoxy and said other religion. — edited by sτévο at 01:42, July 4, 2006 (CDT)

I read Jehovah's Witnesses before I wrote this and there is little comparison there. I am qualified to discuss the beliefs of this organization but it might be better for another to make the appropriate comparisons. Please feel free to make such comparisons in the article. I aimed to keep the history brief, and I organized the "Key doctrines" section to make it easy to add comparisons, even if a general comparison at the bottom of each section is made.
At the very least the subject matter illustrates the dangers of sola scriptura, interpreting the Bible for one's self, and the problem of thousands of little Popes. Willibald 02:04, July 4, 2006 (CDT)
The Jehovah's Witnesses article doesn't have terribly much in the way of comparison (although the Scripture section is a start, and two of the links are especially good); however, as the {cleanup} tag at the top of the page indicates, it's not a model article. We used to have quite a number of articles that were mainly about other religions, however as they had no relation to Orthodoxy they had to be removed. If this religion was compared/contrasted with Orthodoxy, imho, there would be no need to delete it; rather, it would be a valuable addition to OrthodoxWiki. — edited by sτévο at 02:33, July 4, 2006 (CDT)
