The Faith of the Son of God Chart: "Let This Mind Be in You"

This chart is ostensibly about imitating Christ's humility in obedience to God the Father described in Philippians 2:6-8:

Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death...

The Apostle Paul's encouragement to us to have the same attitude is given in the previous verses:

If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from His love...

It true that Christ loves us and in him we are also loved with the same love with which God the Father loves his beloved Son. BUT in the Assembly this was obscured by the legalism, the performance demands, the consequences, etc. In the context of George's Assembly system, this chart was a twisting of scripture to pressure people by guilt into submitting to George and the leadership. Notice the handwritten note under #7 "Even Death of the Cross" - sacrifice, consent, identity.

Anyone remember how this chart struck you?
