The temptation of piety
It is true, this is a classic by the enigmatic Watchman Nee, but having read the book in the early 70's I have had some time to think back upon the life that Mr. Nee would have me live. Pietism and blatant literal living of scripture may be the foundation for a heavenly life, but it will leave a life a life of merit, beauty, hope and lasting affect behind. Nee expects life to be lived under strictist authority with no room for individual personality or self development. It must follow a path led by rigid theology. Watchman Nee is a poor exegete of scriptures. His fundamentalist approach ignores historical context and the culture to which the Bible was originally written.
