Dave Pack is wetting his pants again over another defecting minister. Apparently one of Ron Weinlands ministers has had his eyes anointed and seen the light. He has jumped the sinking ship of Weinerdudeland to join up with the worlds most earth shaking ministry lead by God's most perfect earthly messenger.
Adrian Gray from New Zealand is ready to start his stay in the reeducation camp in Wadsworth, Ohio.
Dear Brethren,At least you have to had it to the guy to have finally waken up to the fact that Ron is a convicted felon. Listening to Weinerdude's recent sermons, preaching by his remaining ministers and others, you would never know that Ron is ready to go to prison.
I am a senior elder in The Church of God – Preparing for the Kingdom of God (PKG). Both my wife and I have been deeply troubled over the last number of years with the teachings of Mr. Weinland.
As is often the case, our concerns started with a question about one doctrine, but this one problem quickly grew into many, and then became a virtual avalanche of questions. We sought answers, but there were none to be found. One evangelist even remarked to a member that it was not his job to explain Scripture!
Mr. Weinland claims to be a “Prophet of the God of Abraham,” as well as claiming other offices and titles. Yet not one of Mr. Weinland’s prophecies has come true! All have failed! Now more recently he has been convicted on 5 counts of tax fraud in the U.S. After so many of his failed prophecies and his disgraceful fraudulent behavior, are we to blindly follow a man because he tells us not to question what he teaches? Of course not!
During Gray's few days in Pack's reeducation camp he has come forth with these points that prove Ron Weinalnd to be a liar.
False Teaching: There is no literal place of safety—but rather God is our Rock and can protect us anywhere.This was a pet teaching of Weinerdude. By claiming women could be ordained it allowed Laura to receive all the legal perks that a regular minister would according to IRS regulations. However, Laura and Ron both abused that privileged and went on spending spree after spending spree. Diamonds, gold, BMW's, unlimited bank accounts, Las Vegas spending sprees and money laundering occupied their warped minds.
False Teaching: The first 4 seals of Revelation are spiritual, relate to the Church and have already taken place.
False Teaching: The Philadelphian and Laodicean eras of the Church are finished and the Church is in a time of transition.
False Teaching: The Work was finished at Mr. Armstrong’s death.
False Teaching: Satan and the Demons are going to die.
False Teaching: Women may be ordained as elders.
False Teaching: Mr. Ron Weinland and his wife are the Two Witnesses and they have finished their job.
False Teaching: Ronald Weinland says he is a Prophet, an Apostle, a Witness, and the Elijah to come.
So it's wrong for Weinerdude to claim to be prophet but it is OK for Dave to claim the same thing? Dave is no more a prophet that my cat laying next to me.
Gray goes on to write:
The PKG websites say that a remnant of the Worldwide Church of God is to be awakened and will join PKG. This will supposedly consist of 3.3% (10 percent of a third) of those who were members of the WCG before the apostasy began: a total of 3200 people (32,000 x. 0033). If that seems confusing to you, that’s because it is utter nonsense and unbiblical!Gray has bought into Dave Pack's lies hook, line and sinker. He is too blind to see what he writes below is also a perfect description of Dave Pack:
This number has now been changed to 63,000 people.
The very small sampling of false teachings listed above is just the very tip of the iceberg of changes made by Ronald Weinland. Christ’s admonition to Philadelphia to “hold fast” (Rev. 3:11) has been tossed out, and the doctrines restored to that era have now been replaced with false teachings that do not come from God.
In Matthew 17:16, Jesus said, “You shall know them by their fruits.” Will we come to know and understand the true Ron Weinland—a deceived false prophet?
Ron has a saying: to look at other teachings or criticism of him is to go through the garbage bin, and even a little look leaves a stench on you. What does Ron Weinland have to hide? The answer—a whole lot of unbiblical nonsense.
The absolute stench coming from PKG teachings should have us all vomiting; instead we are like the analogy of the frog in hot water. We have gradually adjusted to the heating water, and eventually it will be too late to get out of the pot, and we will eventually die if we remain there.
False ministers are clever deceivers. As a false minister, Ron uses the old mind game of “if you say it often enough, they will believe it.” To continue questioning his teachings from within his group only leads to feelings of spiritual inadequacy.You can read Gray's long screed here: Senior Elder (New Zealand Church Pastor) Resigns from Ron Weinland’s COG – PKG
His clever deception causes his followers to feel spiritually weak and inferior, coercing or bullying them to blindly follow along with his teachings. In the process they become spiritually weaker and weaker. This is similar to what happened in the last days of Worldwide.
