SCJ teaches that the Spirit of Truth is with Man Hee Lee, or it is just simply him. It is therefore through this promised pastor Lee that individuals can be led to the truth. God --> Jesus --> Angel --> John --> peoples (Rev 1:1) The angel in Rev 10 gives the little scroll for John to eat up and speak to peoples (Rev 10:9-11) SCJ teaches that this angel is the Counselor, the Spirit of truth that is mentioned in John 14-16, who is Man Hee Lee.
Spirit uses a Human body to do the work of God
Angel (Counselor) --> using John (Man Hee Lee) as the instrument
What are the characteristics of the Spirit of Truth according to the Bible? (John 14-16)
Another Counselor to be with us forever (John 14:16)
The world cannot accept him (John 14:17)
The world doesn't see him nor know him (John 14:17)
Invisible being. SCJ will say that this describes about the angel (Spirit of truth) rather than Man Hee Lee (Spirit of Truth).
He lives with us and will be in us
Then this Spirit of Truth is to live with us, and in us, not just in Man Hee Lee.
SCJ believes that Spirit of Truth only speaks to Man Hee Lee, working with him.
"will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you" (14:26)
EVERYTHING Jesus said, not something different or new.
But Man Hee Lee brings different things about the promised pastor.
Convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment (16:8)
Will guide you into all truth.. He will speak only what he hears and he will tell you what is yet to come" (16:13-14)
1 John 2:1
Counselor/ Advocate Jesus. The same Greek word that is used in John 14:16 "Counselor"
Another counselor will come.
But what does it really mean to be a Counselor??
SCJ emphasizes on it being the "Advocate" who will deliver the message FROM GOD TO US.
So God speaks through Man Hee Lee and his words become the word of God.
However, the Advocate in the Bible does not deliver messages from God but to deliver our messages TO GOD. Jesus speaks to God in our defense (1 John 2:1)
Jesus spoke to God for us by becoming the anointing sacrifice for our sins. (1 John 2:2)
He died for us and this sacrifice cannot be leveled to that of Man Hee Lee who also claims to be another Counselor
ANOTHER counselor in John 14:16
It in original Greek word means another of the SAME kind or similar type.
Man Hee Lee CANNOT and SHOULD NOT be considered as the same kind/ similar type as Jesus.
This is exactly what SCJ is trying to do, trying to view Man Hee Lee as equal as Jesus, by calling him as the teacher, like what the disciples did to Jesus, and the counselor and the spirit of truth!
The Bible is clear that this Counselor is the Holy Spirit.
"The Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name" (John 14:26)
SCJ does not believe in the trinity because there is no Holy Spirit but the spirit of truth is Man Hee Lee.
However, it is the Holy Spirit who is also there as another God entity with Father God and His son, Jesus.
Holy Spirit came after Jesus left (Acts 2) and HE poured out the power to the disciples
It is this Holy Spirit that will work within us to guide us to all truth (John 16:13-14)
And only teaching us what Jesus has said (John 14:26(--that he is the son of God who has been sent to save us (John 3:16). The good news, the hidden treasure of everything now revealed (Col 2:3)
