Amidst the authoritarian clamour of an institution's man-made controls such as dogma, regulations, programs, measures of pastoral success, pastor-centric congregations, and legitimacy via human approval; if prophets of God were among us would we even be listening?

Interesting conclusion and appeal. Are the EGW estates too closely dependent on the mainstream institution and structure (appointments, funding etc)?

Anthony, I'm not in a position to answer that question. I do know that for their day to day function, the EGW Estate branch offices are very dependent of General Conference institutions. On the other hand, the Estate successfully resisted an attempt to make it a department of the GC.
