Here is example of how the Worldwide Church of God treated it's members and how it lusted after money.
This is a truly a disgusting story that was on Facebook this week.
This is not the first time that the WCG did this to members and families of the deceased. It was standard practice. There are many documented cases over the decades of the WCG suing family members to get money that the church believed they deserved. There are even instances of families left destitute because the WCG took all the money.
This is not something left to the old dusty bin of WCG history. It still goes on in every large splinter group out there today. Beware of putting the COG in your will at the expense of your family!
My father was an elder for 30 some years with no pay. Dad died at age 62. Leaving my mother a widow. A church member who my parents took care of for years left my mother his money. WWC took my mother to court and got part of it. They then asked my mother and my brother for the rest of it. And My Brother FD who was an elder got up in front of the church and resigned and left the wwc church. My mother owned the church building that they were meeting in. Headquarters Pasadena [was] a bunch of crooks!
By the way the mans body wasn't even cold yet. The same day of his funeral the lawyers called my mother and I into a meeting. And across the table was you guessed it. [A]World Wide Church of God minister and headquarters on the phone guiding them all the way.
