There was in interesting comment on Facebook the other day about the upheavals that went on in the Worldwide Church of God as the changes in doctrine came down the pipeline. This person made a correct observation about the current leadership and ministry of UCG (COGWA too.)
There was no love toward those struggling with the changes. Let's set aside for the moment that I agreed with some changed but disagreed with most. When I respectfully and quietly expressed my concerns to the ministry about the sweeping changes they sent thugs from headquarters to shut me up. They wanted a Borg mentality. The thugs sent to me eventually became top ministers in UCG. The irony. It was not concern for me and others trying to make sense of it, it was hatred.
The sad thing in this is that while these ministers were treating people like dirt, disfellowshipping left and right, they were working behind the scenes to continue their paychecks elsewhere. After wrecking havoc with the WCG members, they jumped ship where they claimed to be enlightened TRUE Christians once again. Yet, to this day, they still treat people like dirt and look at them as uneducated chaff that only serve as ATM machines.
