"Where do you think you are going?"
"I want to talk to the emperor."
"But I'm supposed to be his advisor."
"You do advise him--you help him--by keeping your place."
"Don't you understand how it works? Hierarchy--authority--that is how it works. You are under him--so am I. We must keep our place--that is how the system works. Look in the Bible."
"Well, let me show you PEB--for example..."
"You have access to the Word? We must share this with the brethren!"
"Yes I do have access to the Bible--but for my eyes only. I couldn't possibly release this Word to everyone freely. The new church is in an infantile stage, PEB, we could not let anyone get their hands on it---but look.....You, are a man set under authority...
"For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel." (Luke 7: 8-9)
"See PEB--the faithful Roman centurion--this is you my friend. Following God's system. Jesus said he only did the Father's will--He was under the Father's authority--see--we all have to stay in line--keep the order--follow the rule--submit to authority. It's what God wants."
"But that's not the way it used to work--we were all brothers and sister--equals in the sight of the Lord--working together to spread the Gospel...."
"A work that is done! The Gospel has already been through the world--and our great emperor STIN has declared that every citizen in the U.W.A. a Christian. Now, there is much work to be done, teaching--building up the body--building up the house of God--and you must do it for the sake of the billions of people that are under you."
"Think PEB--of all the people that are under your authority--how they need you--how they need to be lead, guided--out of their foul, corrupt lifestyle. The emperor has delivered the world to you, and you don't want it. Not everyone has such great faith as you--yes--you were an apostle--but that age is done--a new age is here."
"They are calling to you PEB! Be the great shepherd of the flock--feed the sheep PEB--feed the sheep!"
"Let me explain the new church to you. The sinners come to the temple, the sanctuary--the house of God on the sabbath day. They enter by the gates of praise and then to the inner court of worship. We shall fill the sanctuary with glorious music. You are the priest--the pastor--you shall minister to the congregation from the altar. PEB--these are all very, very Biblical procedures! I can show you the examples and types--the temple--the priesthood and authority of the Levitical priesthood--the place of worship and the altar where the offering is given."
"Your church had seen fit to ignore all these examples--examples which are written in the law! These are laws of God my friend--it is fit time that the church followed Gods' laws properly!!"
"We are simply providing a place for the common man to draw close to a God that loves him! And, of course, give them the opportunity to make a holy offering--as the Bible says no man may enter in without an offering--a tithe of their increase."
"And they need the priesthood--a teacher of the people. The delegated, designated, anointed, appointed, authority who has the right to do the ministry of the temple. He that God ordains as minister of the assembly. It is only right and proper in the sight of God. Let all things be done in order--let all be silent when the man of God speaks. See the power you have been given by God! You, PEB--are the chief shepherd--the father of all..."
"Take the position that God has given you....."
