For some reason the Living Church of God's two public spokesmen, Rod Meredith and Bob Thiel are both preoccupied with sex. Fornicating tweetering teens, slap happy masturbators and nicely dressed gays have a powerful hold over the Living Church of God. Exploding headlines about sex predominates many of it's articles and news postings.
In the previous post I quoted Living Church of God blaming hurricane Sandy on gays. Bob Thiel also is speaking out about gays too. He is particularly incensed that New Zealand is IGNORING LCG's message by not sitting around in sack cloth and ashes wailing and knashing their teeth in national repentance.
But New Zealand does not seem inclined to truly listen to those who are strongly advocating changes in the moral direction of the land. Nor do those in Australia or the other Anglo-dominated lands.
So what really has Bob getting his knickers in a wad? The Living Church of God published an article decrying New Zealand's stance on gay marriage. Agree with it or not, one has to wonder why LCG feels it necessary to stick their hands in the pants of New Zealand when the sexual escapades of some in the ministry and leadership of LCG leave a whole lot to be desired.
Bob quotes LCG with this:
The “Marriage Equality” bill that seeks to redefine marriage to include unions between two members of the same sex, overwhelmingly passed its first Parliamentary reading. NZ Prime Minister, John Key, one of the bill’s supporters, described the result as exciting and told media sources that it was “a strong endorsement for the equality of rights” (New Zealand News, August 30, 2012). However, Mr. Key admitted that the debate will grow louder and “quite ferocious” as the bill progresses. Nonetheless, since a strong majority of Parliamentarians supports the bill, it will almost certainly get safely through its remaining stages and become law (ibid.).While many have labeled this bill as a positive initiative that leads to “equal rights,” God does not mince words regarding what He thinks about homosexuality. He calls it “vile” and unnatural (Romans 1:26-27) and an “abomination” (Leviticus 18:22) because it totally corrupts what marriage pictures–the union between Jesus Christ and the Church (Ephesians 5:22-32). Many do not understand the gravity of what they are promoting.
Jesus Christ is going to return, and with the saints will restore the knowledge of God’s true way of life (see Isaiah 30:19-22; Acts 3:19-21). Read our booklet, The World Ahead: What Will It Be Like? to glimpse just how different the soon-coming World Ahead will be.
Yes, read LCG's booklet and salvation is assured! Lolipops and cotton candy by the rivers of Babylon will be your blessed assurance.
