WordPerfect is vastly superior technology for documents. The underlying concept is based on long established principles of formating electronic documents and is self-consistent. It really is the right way to do things. It was also easy to repair and recover documents that got damaged. However, when Corel bought the company, they added a crap load of features that simply did not work properly and risked crashing all the time. In the end, the interface of Corel’s WordPerfect helped its doom.
MS Office is just the opposite. Internally the documents are ratty junk formatting that is not even self-consistent with MS’s own published guidelines. It really isn’t that hard to corrupt the files. However, it was generally quite stable and the interface works well. This is evidenced by how well most versions of MS Office work with WINE on Linux, while very few versions of WordPerfect worked properly. It’s hard just getting any version of WordPerfect installed, because the installation routine does quirky stuff that ignores standards. Even the Linux version of WordPerfect was creaky and crappy, and crashed regularly during the years I used it.
One of the hardest mental blocks to overcome in faith is getting rid of “holiness = performance.” Holiness is your personal devotion and commitment to God as your Heavenly Father. It’s a hunger for Him, where you keep turning back to Him every time your choices warrant some form of discipline. “Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him” (Job 13:15). That’s what kept Enoch and Elijah from having to face physical death.
This is related to the recurring question about “getting people saved.” It’s easy to find quotes by major Christian recording artists, for example, saying things like: “This last year I led X thousand people to Christ.” That’s performance brag and misleading as Hell. It’s based on an expression that implies humans can decide to be born again. It’s a flat contradiction to Romans 8 and Ephesians 2, and given the mystical nature of what it meant, a contradiction to the implications of John 3. Jesus didn’t just pull the parable of spiritual birth out of the air. Life in the Spirit is a miracle only God can perform. Paul notes that we were formally dead and unable to desire salvation, so it’s not possible to choose Christ until you realize He has chosen you. What we do is not “lead people to Christ” as most evangelicals mean it, where you engage in some psychological conversion. We don’t teach that here. We focus on living according to the rich heritage of His promises. We teach how to make Him appear real and alive in their eyes; they’ll come to Him because they can’t stay away.
Even if your organization is just a temporary thing related to a single mission, or even a simple hobby or sports club, it still needs to be a shepherd covenant. This is how all of Creation is wired, including humans. You can restrict the implications of authority and application, but if it isn’t a tribal covenant, it’s not going to work properly. Democracy is a pagan human invention contrary to Scripture.
