    Those fun loving folk in Charlotte that are the worlds most humble shepherds to ever take care of the sheep of the Church of God are apparently resorting to more devious ways to spy on members.

    I have heard recently that various devious people around the country regularly monitor the various Facebook  groups and other COG groups that have connections to the Churches of God (Worldwide Church of God and all splinter groups).  These people take screen shots of the comments made by LCG members and others and forward them on to the ministry.

    Church of God members of various groups should be aware that PCG, RCG, LCG, UCG, and others regularly do this.  People are getting turned in all the time for comments made on social media. 

    It is another pathetic example of how  little trust these controlling groups have in their members and that they cannot handle ANYONE questioning ANYTHING.

    Remember brethren, If you cannot submit to these actions now how will you submit in Petra or the Kingdom?  You are being tested, sorely....

    Ever since the Church of God instituted Regional Directors in the church hierarchy, they have been set up as the "go to" person if there is a member complaint about the pastor.

    Just hows easy is that to do?  Do you feel your Regional Director would actually listen to you without any recrimination?  Do you think your local pastor would treat you differently once he is corrected by a regional director?

    We all know the answer to those questions.  We have all witnessed the reactions of Regional Directors to member complaints.  The member is kicked out!

    Notice #5 well has that worked for you?

    Here are some of the specific duties a Regional Pastor (or Regional Director) fulfills: 

    1. Provides support by giving counsel, direction, and encouragement to Pastors in fulfilling their responsibilities. 

    2. Is a Pastor-at-large for the Pastors and Elders who seek or desire spiritual counsel and direction from within the region. 

    3. Knows the leading men in the region, to be able to encourage manpower development and have a basis for ordination recommendations. 

    4. Fulfills administrative responsibilities of reports, divorce and remarriage review and decisions, and ordination recommendations. 

    5. Listens to and seeks to resolve complaints or appeals from the brethren regarding their Pastor or Church area. 

    6. Supports the Area Pastor when he, the Area Pastor, is unsuccessful in mediating or resolving conflicts among the brethren in his Pastorate. 

    7. Communicates with the Director of Church Administration regarding the needs and spiritual health of the region.

    Did you know that when LCG or any Church of God disfellowships a person  that it has therapeutic benefits for the person and the congregations?  Treating people like shit and publicly humiliating them is therapeutic...who knew!

    A sad but necessary function of ministerial authority is to disassociate certain individuals from regular fellowship.  The Bible shows the Church is to be clean (1 Corinthians 5:5; 2 Corinthians 6:14,    17; Ephesians 5:27).  Occasionally, it becomes necessary to initiate a therapeutic action for the good of an individual and the Church.  This action (hopefully temporary) is to expel a person who has brought sin into the congregation.  We understand that we are regularly dealing with persons who are at varying spiritual levels, including the following:

    Faithful members Members who are very weak and may not be truly converted Non-members, some of whom:

    • Understand but do not subscribe and are peaceable.
    • Do not understand but are peaceable.
    • Do not understand but are not peaceable.

    Former members of the Church, some of whom:
    • Wish to return
    • May be vindictive

    The following is a letter that a man on Facebook who has written to his children who are members of the Philadelphia Church of God personality cult.  Gerald Flurry, the leader of the Philadelphia Church of God, has a long and deadly history of enforcing the vile polices that he has created to keep his members under control.  PCG members have committed suicide over these policies, parents have thrown teenage children out on the street, parents have turned their backs on the children and children have turned against their parents.  One family was even encourage to take their disabled child to the mall and abandon him so that the State could take care of him.

    Gerald Flurry has long held himself up as the Elijah to come and God's personal representative on earth today.  If Flurry was truly an Elijah then he would be doing the following COMMAND from God:

    5"Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the LORD. 6"He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse." Malachi 4:5-6

    Luke 1:17
    And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the parents to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous--to make ready a people prepared for the Lord."
     Here is what Dan Moffitt wrote to The Edmond Life and Leisure Facebook  page:

    I'm going to post it on as many Edmond and OK city pages I can find, and send it to the local news papers

    Tell my children I love them.

    I wish I could hear from them on Father's day.

    I haven't heard from them in 3 years. They are in the Philadelphia Church of God. A controlling cult that cuts children off from parents and parents from children. The dictatorial leader Gerald Flurry has issued an edict that says members can have NO contact with family members that are not in the church. Members have committed suicide because of this evil family destroying ruling. 

    My oldest son Nathan Moffett and my youngest daughter Elise Moffett are in the cult and have been prevented form contacting me, my youngest son, my daughter and granddaughters. The cult has destroyed my family. 

    When my oldest daughter and her family were told that they could have no contact with me and when they were told I was not allowed to see my granddaughter, they left the cult. 

    When you attend events at Armstrong Auditorium you support the family destroying cult. They don't allow interracial dating or even dancing. They believe they are God's ONLY TRUE Church and Gerald Flurry is THAT PROPHET, he is THE APOSTLE, god on earth.

    Here are the guidelines that ministers in the Living Church of God should be following when they dish out punishments on rebellious LCG members..

    Guidelines for Exercising Church Discipline and Authority  (Handout 3.4) pg. 3-12

    To exercise ecclesiastical authority properly and effectively, a minister:

    • Must be ABOVE REPROACH in his personal conduct.
    • Must have INSPIRED the flock to follow the RIGHT WAY by means of his personal           EXAMPLE and PREACHING.
    • Must be FAIR in judgment and in NO way a RESPECTER of persons.
    • Must be CONSISTENT in the use of authority and BALANCED in frequency of its use.
    • Must ensure that the degree of severity is suited to the seriousness of the infraction of God’s           Laws (1 Corinthians 5:1-4).

    Notice #2 above.  Is there really such a thing for a minister in the Church of God to be ABOVE REPROACH?   Especially when you read things like this:

    Why was there such an epidemic of adultery at LCG headquarters in Charlotte in the first place? I can count 6 people that I have sat in church with for years, ALL OF WHOM WORKED FOR THE HEADQUARTERS CHURCH who are now known adulterers.

    Four were disfellowshipped, one was marked, one still has her job and is in good standing with the church solely because of her husband's position (friendship with Meredith does have its kickbacks)

    Doesn't it seem like a disproportionate number when so few work in that building? I have worked in many "worldly" offices and none of them have had such rampant sexual escapades!

    I'm just curios to see if there are any theories out there as to why it happened.

    On June 22 there was a comment on the LCG Collecting Facebook Screenshots of Members? thread describing how McNair and League demanded that several LCG members take down photo's they had put up on Facebook of a party they had attended.  It seems some LCG members had recently returned from Greece and decided to throw a Greek themed party.  In most of society this would not even ring any alarms or raise an eyebrow.  However.....we are talking about a Church of God now and things are NOT normal in most Churches of God, particularly in the Living Church of God.  Power and control must be maintained over the sheeple at all times.  They must never think outside the box or have fun without the permission of a minister!

    A reader here wrote:

    McNair and League personally approached me and told me to remove pics of church members (ministers included) from my Facebook page.

    The pics were of families. There was nothing crazy or inappropriate going on in any of them. Just mothers and fathers with their kids enjoying fellowship on a Sunday night.

    "What's wrong with that?" you might ask. Well I'll tell you.

    The host and hostess of this get-together had just returned from a trip to Greece. The party was Greek-themed and the guests came dressed as Greeks (aka togas). Apparently wearing a toga means you are engaging in an Animal House type fraternity party with drunken mayhem and other lude and lascivious behavior which "paints the LCH headquarters in a negative light". I was told that even if nothing bad happened at the party, "it was better to avoid the appearance of evil" so I needed to take the pics down asap.

    Many others were also told to take the pics down. Some did. Some refused.

    LCG headquarters (especially Richard Ames) believes that costumes are evil and that God's people should have no part in them. I was told that the Pagans used to wear costumes/ masquerade so that they could have orgy sex with each others wives without their identities actually being known. From that, coupled with the ever-evil Halloween, a true Christian can deduce that costumes are bad. Interestingly, other LCG congregations can engage in costume parties without retaliation. But in Charlotte not so much.

    In true LCG form, there are different rules for different people.

    I only wish I could share the pics with all of you so that you could see how harmless they were. Maybe I can email them to the blog owner and he can post them?


    This same reader responded today with these pictures and comments:

    The pics are relevant in that they are perfectly harmless. No booze or sexy outfits. Just families and their kids in modest costumes. We were all asked to take the pics off our FB pages because HQ's felt they made them "look bad". We were told to "avoid the appearance of evil".

    I don't know about you but I don't see anything "evil" or embarrassing in them.

    Can you imagine the horror that kids in United Church of God feel when they wear shirts like this!  They would not be caught dead wearing them in public.

    Notice how UCG still CANNOT refer to Jesus in any manner what-so-ever.  That should be the focus of their youth camps, not law keeping.  But that will NEVER happen.

    UCG sounds exactly like the Mormons.  They too cannot speak about their god unless they call it "Heavenly Father"  It is an absolutely IMPOSSIBILITY for ANYONE in UCG or anyone else in the entire world to be "like" heavenly father.

    This is what UCG is referring to:

    King James Bible
    Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

    Since UCG does not understand "grace' or "sanctification" it cannot ever achieve the
    "perfection" it is seeking.  The law will never help them attain it.  Ignoring Jesus obviously has not helped them either.

    What various COG leaders envision now happening...

    Did you hear all that wailing and gnashing of teeth today around 12:00 noon eastern time?  That was Rod Meredith reacting to the Supreme Court decision to allow gay marriage in the entire country.

     Rod Meredith reacting to the news....

    Be prepared for a myriad of sermons and articles about the homo's and queers and how they have now brought about the final downfall of society.

    This will not be limited to Rod Meredith though.  Gerald Flurry will soon start spouting his unique version of stupidity and then Dave Pack will do his version.  Dave Pack needs something to bring his name back into the limelight anyway.  After being publicly humiliated for three years in a row now  with failed prophecies, he will now have something to complain about  that takes the focus off of his miserably life.  I can't leave out God's most educated and important COG leader ever - Bob Thiel - who will soon start with his own malarkey.

    Perhaps we will be blessed if one of these guys says he will do this:

    Texas Pastor Rick Scarborough Is Willing To Be Burned To Death To Oppose Gay Marriage

    or act like these morons:

    Christian Couple Decides To Divorce If Gays Can Marry

    It's no wonder people look upon Christians for being so hateful when idiots like these COG leaders and the morons above say dumb things like this.  But when legalism is the rule of life, what else should we expect?

    Ah, what would this world be without some minuscule, irrelevant Church of God splinter cult leader running off at the mouth about some perceived ill of society.  These so-called "men of God" feel that it is their god given right to say stupid things about the society around them.

    Our latest "authority" is a man who has never come up with anything original in his life, has people write his messages and lives off the moldy remnants of his daddy, Garner Ted who died twelve years ago.  Looking at the Incontinent (Intercontinental) Church of God you will see Garner Ted's face on the main page with his relevant sermon of the day being featured.  Only after you wade through several pages of Armstrongite bullshit do you find out that Garner Ted is dead.

    Like his dad, Mark feels that his opinion is relevant and worthwhile for people to take notice of.  This is a common mode of thinking of all COG leaders. Their opinions might hold some weight if these men were actually "godly" or ran churches that were spiritually,  ethically and morally pure.  The problem in these three areas is that not one single Church of God is ethically, spiritually or morally pure.  The COG's are filled with some of the most morally bankrupt men imaginable.  This is even more hypocritical considering the fact that every single one of these men and their churches claim to be the sole repository of God's knowledge on earth today.  They feel they are God's personal instruments of wit and wisdom.  We all have seen how well THAT has worked out over the last 80 some years!

    A few morsels from Mark are:

    "This is a week that will live in infamy. A majority on Supreme Court of the United States has officially flipped off God. They've held that their judgment supersedes His Law. However this monstrous miscarriage of jurisprudence plays out across our lives, there is no question that six of the justices just elevated their temporal authority above that of God."
    "There appears to be no more remedy under the Constitution or in our judicial system to obey God in the face of those who would force the will of the sodomites upon us all. Certainly Christian ministers will have no protection for opting out of the performance of a queer matrimonial ceremony. They will face law-suits in Federal Court claiming discrimination and all kinds of pain and suffering on the part of the plaintiffs, they will be on the hook for civil damages at the least, and potentially punitive sanctions for having violated Federal Law."

    Churches are not bound to marry anyone they don't want to.  However, if a couple goes to the Justice of the Peace then they MUST marry them.

    Mark then goes on to whine about Obamacare, even though most of his church members take full advantage of it:

    The high court committed another breach of justice by ruling against the clear language in the Obamacare law, and saved it by doing so! Words, no matter how incontrovertibly clear, can simply be ignored by "justices" determined to vote their socialist, fascist ideology, regardless of the facts before them. They should be impeached and disgraced. But the limp wrists in Congress don't have the fortitude and won't do it. God will. His word has plenty to say about unjust judges, and that's exactly what they are.

    Mark admits that he and the rest of the Church of God leadership are IMPOTENT little men INCAPABLE of EVER taking a stand on anything.  They value their comfortable lifestyle and money-flow's more than speaking out the "truth" they claim to have complete ownership of.  Its obvious that Mark is a coward, Gerald Flurry is a coward, Dave Pack is a coward and Rod Meredith is a coward.  None of  these men have the balls to do anything.  If Mark and the leaders of the various COG's who feel they are Elijah's/apostle/prophets had the where-with-all then they would STAND up and proclaim their message no matter what.  Publishing their tripe in their own rags or Facebook pages is no warning at all.

    What has happened this week opens up cracks in the foundation of the United States that may never be repaired. We keep waiting for someone to call them out, to speak the truth, to take them on. Someone with the position and power to go head to head. What we find is that there is no one who is in such a position. There simply is no higher office than the presidency and no judicial power above that of the Supreme Court. We can rebel against such government tyranny on a personal, and in our case on an organizational level, but we cannot force them to be honest or to honor the oath of office they so routinely violate.

    One reader on a Facebook page made this comment about Mark and the other COG leaders spouting off right now:

    The passage that condemns gays also condemns divorce, adultery, liars, and a whole lot more, but these self-righteous piss-asses can't see past the one item on a long list. How many of these "leaders" have had adulterous affairs? What ever they propose to do to gays, should be done to them as well...

    Marks few remaining members encourage him on with these wonderful remarks.  The same old smugness that has permeated Armstrongism is still alive and well!

    "Keep up the the great work... The truth hurts those who have not been called by The Eternal. The Intercontinental Church of God proclaims that truth. I am reminded of our Savior's words in John 8:7 "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone." We all know that God's TRUE prophets have always been castigated, maligned and even killed down through the ages because those of this world didn't like what they said. "God's word is sharper than a two-edged sword"..... We know the "world" isn't being called now. They must play their little "evil" games.... Thank you for the updates every week.... Stay strong and God bless you all"
    Ignoring the fact that Garner Ted was an adulterous whore monger, a man writes:
     "Welcome to the United States of Sodom and Gomorrah."
     Of course how can we leave Satan out of all of this?

    "Score One more for Satan! Disgusting.."
     If Mark Armstrong, Gerald Flurry, Dave Pack and Rod Meredith were actually men who were deeply ethical, deeply spiritual and morally pure, then and only then would people sit up and take notice of them.  Since they rule over their own dens of sexual impurity, greed and avarice and have done NOTHING to stop it all, absolutely NO ONE cares what they think.

    If you are a member of the Living Church of God and you QUESTION so meting, are you allowed freedom to question and NOT be attacked and kicked out?  Is there room for free thinking in the LCG?  Reading the "duties" of the LCG overlords it appears that questioning is NOT something that they feel member should be doing.  Those that question are turned over to Satan.  Rod Meredith and the LCG ministry want you LCG members to know that when they kick you out and treat you like vermin, they are doing it out of LOVE!

    The Fundamental Purposes for Ministerial Authority Are: 

    1.  For the preservation of unity (Acts 15; 1 Corinthians 1:10; and 2 Corinthians 13:10).  Unity is imperative if the Church is to function as one body.  Singularity of objectives is the fruit of unity. 
    2.  To protect the flock from “wolves” and the willfully disobedient (2 Thessalonians 3:6, 1014; Hebrews 13:17).  At first glance it may seem like a horrible act to commit a person to Satan.  However, in the end this act produces a more stable and re-dedicated Christian (1 Corinthians 5:5).  In no way should this be construed as a hostile act.  When viewed as an action of concern for the welfare of the person, it becomes an expression of love. 

    3.  Binding and Loosing (Matthew 16:19).  Judicial decisions must be made on unclear matters.  Christ gave His ministers authority to decide on issues within God’s framework of law.

    Living Church of God is all about L-O-V-E!    But that LOVE should never be heavy handed....cough....cough...

    Precautions to Keep in Mind When Exercising Ministerial Authority: 
    Exercise of authority must be motivated by love.  Without love as the primary motive there is no way to use authority with justice within the Church community.  The exercise of authority must never be taken lightly.  Benefits derived from exercising authority in love are manifold.  Severe and serious detriment will stem from the unjust, selfish and irresponsible use of authority.  There are serious consequences for authority abuses (Ezekiel 34:2-6).  A good rule of thumb is to use the least amount of authority necessary to do the job.  Heavy authoritarianism is not required for people who have a heart for God’s ways.  LCG Pastors Manuel pg 311-312
    How many LCG ministers, elders, department heads and evangelists put the following guidelines into practice?   When has the LCG minister ever NOT overreacted?   Its all about SUBMISSION which basically means that whenever a minister tell you something to do, even though you know it to be wrong, you are under his authority and MUST do it.  Its a test from God to see how well you submit to authority.  The law is written on LCG members hearts, but NOTHING is written there concerning Jesus.  No grace, nothing.
    Since abuse of authority is destructive, we must not over-react and go to the opposite extreme.  We should seek to understand more of the mind of God as shown by scripture.  “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven,” said Solomon.  One could say the spiritual application is, “There is a time to exercise authority, but you must use love all the time.”   A Christian voluntarily places himself under Christ and the authority of the Church.  In this age submission to authority is a rare thing.  Submission by members of God’s true Church represents clear evidence the Laws of God are being written in the hearts of men!  Truly converted Christians are far more submissive to God’s Laws and authority than carnal-minded man.  The Apostle Paul wrote some governmental guidelines to the Church at Corinth in dealing with serious conflicts in the Church, (2 Corinthians 3:3-6).    We cannot judge the heart of man—but we may judge the fruit.  The Pastor should always pray for discernment in these matters since God alone knows the heart (Isaiah 11:2-3 and Jeremiah 17:10).  LCG Pastors Manuel pg 311-312 

    In order for an LCG minister to be a fair judge and arbitrator of the law, he must meet these expectations......of which every single LCG minister seems to have FAILED!

    Guidelines for Exercising Church Discipline and Authority  (Handout 3.4) 
    To exercise ecclesiastical authority properly and effectively, a minister:
    • Must be ABOVE REPROACH in his personal conduct.
    • Must have INSPIRED the flock to follow the RIGHT WAY by means of his personal EXAMPLE and PREACHING.
    • Must be FAIR in judgment and in NO way a RESPECTER of persons.
    • Must be CONSISTENT in the use of authority and BALANCED in frequency of its use.
    • Must ensure that the degree of severity is suited to the seriousness of the infraction of God’s  Laws (1 Corinthians 5:1-4).  LCG Pastors Manuel pg 311-312

    LCG ministers and HQ's treatment of members seems ot be slash and burn mentality.  Jump to conclusions and kick them out allowing no recourse.

    The above is a screen shot of PCG's public Facebook page.  It shows a group of students learning to use various programs of Adobe creative products.  Apparently these kids are being training for the "final push" as the tribulation is just a few clicks away. 

    Only in Armstrongism can a person link computer training to the tribulation.  If the tribulation does hit as they claim, none of those kids or anyone else is going to be sitting at a computer  working on Photoshop or Illustrator.  Unless of course, Gerald Flurry has conned the Jordanian government into installing electricity and computer banks in Petra so they can all work from there.

    From a reader:

    Who wants to listen to dead Ted's old recorded blatherings about morality when that fucking pervert had none himself and finally had to be expelled openly and permanently from the WCG by his own father HWA when GTA got so spoiled that he would no longer even pretend to repent?

    Who wants to listen to a false prophet like Flurry ramble on about morality while he edits, deletes, changes and warps HWA's teachings so he can cut you off from all contact with your real family members and hand you over to old PCG sex perverts and predators?

    Who wants to listen to Meredith talk about morality when he is always lying to his followers about what HWA had taught in the past and would now supposedly want “upgraded”?

    Who wants to listen to the UCG's Council of Evildoers talk about morality when they expel innocent victims of guilty perverts so they can show what they now call “love” to the unrepentant, godless perverts that they welcome in to vainly try to increase the attendance numbers of their continually splitting retirement paycheck project?

    Who wants to listen to some Pack of lies try to get you all outraged about the perverse fashions in the world only to have him go on to claim at the end of the same six hours of noise that he (and not HWA) is the Elijah since DCP “restored” the doctrine that you have to give everything you have to him (which sort of makes you wonder what the point was of all those tithes and offerings if you are just supposed to hand over everything)?

    Who wants to listen to Ronald the Clown's (Weinland) endless silly fiction just so you can end up buying his family members the overpriced Euro-junk that passes for cars?

    Who wants to listen to (Bob) Thiel talk about morality when he is steeped in pagan prophecies and retroactively tricked someone into anointing him as a prophet (rather than for his illness, which turned out to be mental and spiritual rather than physical)?

    Who wants to listen to Joe (James) Malm talk about morality when he is a calendar-confused divorcee who rebelled against HWA but now wants you to go along with everything he makes up?

    Who wants to listen to Eric Peasant (King) talk about morality when he obviously gets his prophetic nonsense from watching too much garbage on television?

    Remember those Bible Story books from the halcyon days of the Worldwide Church of God when the church had some slight relevance and meaning in peoples lives?  Remember those idyllic nights cuddled up in bed and your parents reading you cute little stories about Noah's ark and all the soft furry creatures that miraculously made their way to it?

    Wait!  What?  STOP!

    That was the stories read to the kids next door by their "so-called" Christian parents.  This is what they saw in their books:'

    God smiling down on Noah and all the cute little animals.

    So what did the kids in the Worldwide Church of God get to see?


    and this

    Children in the Worldwide Church of God were scarred for life by these images.  Of course this was deliberately done.  It was a subtle tool to keep kids and members compliant to the church.  If you sinned or screwed up you would die just like these poor miserable souls, though your death would be more horrific, thanks to Rod Meredith and you would die like this:

    Oh what memories!  Endless rants by Rod Meredith over us being strung up on meat hooks as the Germans tortured us in concentration camps or shipped us off to Germany to be their slaves.

    Now you will get to relive those memories all over again.  The dark and twisted cult of Gerald Flurry and The Philadelphia Church of God are republishing this crap for a new generation of people.  Just one more tool in Flurry's arsenal on keeping the kiddies in line and submissive.

    Living Armstrongism is reporting that when the PCG claims to have bought the publishing rights to The Bible Story.  LA notes that this set of books was NOT in the original number of books and booklets that PCG dished out over $3,000.000.00 for when they lost the court trail over their plagiarizing of Mystery of the Ages.

    So Joel Hilliker says that PCG bought the copyright to The Bible Story. He made this claim that PCG has purchased the copyright for The Bible Story, a retelling of the Old Testament by Basil Wolverton made for HWA's WCG in 1958-1972.
    In this particular segment of PCG's Trumpet Hour Hilliker talks with Brent Nagtegaal about PCG's Bible Story. While introducing this segment Hilliker makes the following statement:
    Well, for several years now the Philadelphia Church of God has been working on a multi-volume project called The Bible Story. This was actually started by Herbert W. Armstrong back in the 1960s. We bought the copyrights to it and we're printing it again. (20 minutes.)
    Really? PCG bought the copyright for The Bible Story? It was not one of the eighteen booklets PCG purchased in 2003. I was aware that PCG was publishing their own version of The Bible Story but this is the first time I have heard that PCG has purchased the copyright for The Bible Story.

    What is going on here? Did PCG purchase the copyright without going through WCG? Did they give even more money to Tkach's WCG?

    Surely Grace Communion International (WCG) did not sell more books to Flurry?   The fact that they did it in the first place raised a lot of eyebrows considered they believe everything that Herbert Armstrong taught was heresy.  But I guess money still speaks louder than integrity.

    The Living Church of God has been going overboard lately in trying to impress upon its members  how "unified" the church is.  You can be guaranteed that when any Church of God starts a "we have never been more unified" campaign that they are any thing but!

    Why does the Church of God (Armstrong version) have such a horrendous record of being unkind and unforgiving to its members?  Jesus certainly NEVER acted this why does Rod Meredith., Dave Pack, Gerald Flurry, James Malm and Vic Kubik?

    A reader here writes:

    The sad thing is I know of several of the disfollowshipped. Who have gone to Meredith and McNair and League to make peace. They just wanted to live in peace, some even confessed that they were wrong and all LCG did was spit in their face. Saying that there was no room for forgiveness for them. And that they would never attend LCG again. They also said that they did not believe they were repentant. Can they see their hearts and minds? It took a lot for some of these people to just go to them. Believe me they will never go again!

    Now I hear that LCG is saying that they did all this in LOVE for these people. WHAT!!! How can this be love? There is no forgiveness and kindness in LCG. God would not treat people this way. He ate with publicans and sinners. And they Bible says only he can see the hearts and minds of people and to be careful how you judge! I think they are just modern day Pharisees.

    Vic Kubik is speaking out with his interpretation of what he and UCG thinks marriage is.  Vic declares that the UCG only acknowledges the Supreme Court of Heaven and not the decision of any human court.

    Anyone that has ever followed or been part of the United Church of God or any other Church of God for that matter,  know that marriage has never been held up as a pinnacle of virtue by some of its leaders and members. Adultery has been rampant in the COG for decades.  UCG is filled with it.  Even its own leaders have been guilty of it.

    What about the embezzlers in the COG that steal Church members tithes and offerings for their own benefit?  What about COG leaders living lives of excess and luxury as members suffer?

    If the UCG and the other COG's really uphold what they are claiming to hold dear from the Bible, then why do NONE of them aid the homeless, help the suffering, feed the hungry, care for the prostitutes or care for the environment?  When have any of these Churches ever set foot in an AIDS hospice or cared for people with AIDS?  When has any of them ever worked with gang members to help them get out of that life style?  How many of them have ever worked with children who are stuck in the system without parents?  How many have ever set foot in a local school and tutored disadvantaged kids and been role models to the parentless?

    How many of these men have ever actually sit down and had a deep conversation with the gay and lesbian members sitting in their own churches this very day?  They are sitting there in UCG, LCG, PCG and RCG. Imagine what its like to hear their so called leaders stand in the pulpit and say some of the absurd shit that they are currently doing!  Imagine sitting in an LCG service with Rod Meredith!!!!!  Bloody hell!

    When the Churches of God get their own corrupt sin-filled houses in order then and only then might world actually sit up and take notice of them.  Decades of placing emphasis on the law instead of Jesus and grace has left the Churches of God looking rather maladroit.

    Fore many decades we had one crazy Church of God member after another coming up with every imaginable end-time scenario.  Now that every single one of them have been abject failures at their predictions, it seems the Canadians now are taking over.

    Our latest is named Henry.  He is a 61 year old Canadian from Alberta.  Henry knows more than the pathetic James Malm.  Malm must be cowering at the awesomeness of Henry!

    He writes:

    Mr. Armstrong passed away in 86 leaving as his successor, Mr. Joe Tkach Sr., who in short order, began changing doctrine from those taught by Christ through His 12 Apostles.  It was at that point that I left the Worldwide Church of God organization.

    From that time until now, I have remained on my own, holding fast to the teachings of the 12 Apostles.

    For the last 31 years, with very few exceptions, I have maintained a minimum two hour per day bible study regime.

    Also, during that time, the principal taught in the Book of Daniel regarding prophetic events being revealed on a "need to know" basis has been manifested much more so now then ever before. Those events are made known in order to give a warning.

    For whatever reason, and I am sure He has one, God has been giving me understanding of those prophecy's.  Having been "stuck" through inspiration, in the Book of Ezekiel, for the better part of a year, I do know it is the responsibility of those blessed with that knowledge, to pass it on.
    That is the main reason for this website.  To make known to those whom God chooses to be taken into His "Place of Safety", the fulfillment and time sequence of the prophetic events leading up to and including when they are taken.  He reveals a massive amount that until now has not even been considered by those making claims to the contrary.

    Henry says the tribulation will begin in October of 2016.  Get your bags packed because its going to be a bumpy ride!

    As you will see, there is absolutely no doubt that the "Great Tribulation" is about to take the world by surprise.  You will also prove from the word of God, that it starts in Oct. 2016.

    At that point, all are saved.  Some saved in the "Wilderness" where God protects them, some saved for canon fodder, famine and pestilence, and some saved for captivity, slavery and torture.

    We can choose to deny it or work at being taken to God's "Place and Safety" for the duration.

    The Prophet Isaiah tells us that of those outside that Place and Safety, only 1 in 10 live to see the start of the millennium.

    In 2020 Jesus Christ will return.

    The return of Christ in 2020, ushers in the 1,000 year reign known as the Millennium. The start of the Kingdom of God on earth.

    The fall of 2016 marks the time Christ takes His people into the wilderness spoken of inRevelation 12:14
    Henry apparently feels he has the power to offer a prayer for you over an anointed cloth that will prevent you from heading into the tribulation:

    As a small token of gratitude, I have initiated a "Prayer Cloth" program where those who have donated to this work will be given a cloth over which a special blessing has been asked.  

    One that asks God to consider that person as worthy to be protected during the Great Tribulation and Armageddon.

    From a reader here:

    Here's the just finished logo for a soon-coming LCG splinter after RCM's demise.  It's core doctrines will be everything RCM ever said or did, including wife spanking, gay bashing, sermons on sexual perversions, boxing, and wildly speculative prophecy.  All members will share the honorary title of Third Most Important Person in the Work.

    That is not a cross you see.  It is a sword.
