Living Church of God has had a long track record of never helping any people outside of the COG in the event of any major disaster. It is not their problem because God will be giving those people another chance later on. Besides, we need to funnel our resources into getting God's word out as a final warning. Valuable resources would be consumed if we helped people.
On their latest Tomorrow's World, News and Prophecy e-Zine they make the following comment on how we are to mourn and care for those afflicted. I can guarantee you right now that LCG is NOT doing anything for the people of Turkey who are suffering through this earthquake. No money has been sent, no supplies, NOTHING, zilch! If there is any money sent at all it will be for what few, if any, LCG members who may be living there. Not for anyone else, but for them only. I also doubt very much if any of them will even pray or mourn for them because we all know that Muslims are outside the bounds of God's mercy. At least in hard line Armstrongism.
Just for once, I would love to see LCG practice what it preaches! Will Dr. Thiel be sending money to help these people? Will he offer prayers and links for assistance on his blog? I certainly will NOT be holding my breath for that to happen!
Jesus admonished His disciples that they should mourn and care for those who are afflicted (Matthew 5:4). He also prophesied that as we approach the end of the age, there will be "earthquakes in various places" and other natural disasters (Matthew 24:7). Bible prophecies indicate that the increasing frequency and severity of these traumatic events will be the "beginning of sorrows" that will mark the imminent return of Jesus Christ to this earth (Matthew 24:8).
