Bob Thiel, the "unofficial" Official spokesman for the Living Church of God, the world's foremost authority on prophecy and Mayan gibberish, has posted an article justifying the use by WCG and LCG of using the Psalms instead of Christian hymns for church singing.
My first reaction was to the picture of LCG's hymnal. Why is it that none of the 700 some splinter groups can EVER come up with an ORIGINAL idea? They took WCG's old purple hymnal, changed the color and added a picture of an old school house. I guess that is very appropriate since that seems to be where many COG's meet. I do think a Masonic Temple or Odd Fellows Hall would have made a better picture though.
Why is it that none of these hundreds of splinter groups could come up with original names for their groups, magazines, colleges, etc.? It's 2012, the old RCG/WCG is 70 plus years in the past and yet none of these groups have moved into the 21st century. Ministers preach the same recycled sermons, evangelists preach the same things over and over and never open themselves up to new things. The old guard still rule and the younger leaders are considered potential heretics. The COG's have turned into tired, worn out, useless organizations that are strangling their members spirits.
(Yes, I know it is their weird looking HQ building. Good taste in architecture is not a strong point of the splinter groups anymore.)
