Dear Debra, 

I was certainly not advocating "two by twos".  The Lord sent out
seventy.  My only point was that in the New Testament we don't find any
one person stepping forth as the sole authority, or the "one oracle", as
Witness Lee has been called among his most ardent followers.  Such a
thing is indeed divisive to the body of Christ, as you have pointed out,
and is very dangerous.

Dear Paul,
I question whether 2 must be sent out.  This sounds like the two by
twos.  However, I agree that leaders must not come to see themselves as
God's only message for the time and that this is very divisive to the
body of Christ.
