Prophet Bob has this to say about Winnail:
In the oral portion of the sermon, Dr. Winnail repeatedly claimed that the USA was established as a Christian nation, the majority of the founders of the USA were Christians, that Christians started nearly all the initial universities, etc. Not "so-called Christians," but "Christians." Does the Living Church of God really wish to claim that Protestants and/or Catholics are Christian? Is this what LCG means to teach? This seems to go against many of your earlier statements and writings. While Dr. Winnail likely did not mean so, why was this allowed to go out in a "must-play" carefully scripted presentation?
Prophet Thiel is also ticked that certain folk in Charlotte thought he (Thiel) was going to bring undue persecution on the LCG:
That Philadelphians should expect persecution (Daniel 11:28-35; Revelation 12:13-14) and not excessively pull-back proclamation to avoid it (I was specifically told that some, who I will not mention now by name, were afraid I, Bob Thiel, could trigger end time persecution, despite the fact that they also specifically teach that the Philadelphians will be persecuted).
That undue persecution is a result of the wandering mind of prophet Bob. Prophet Bob feels is prophetic utterances are worthy of the LCG promoting. Because they refused to promote all of prophet Bob's utterances as truth, he has chosen to separate himself from LCG. Apparently prophets still are without honor in their own churches.
Prophet Bob is also not happy that LCG has given short notice to his books on Mayan prophecy and Obama. Prophet Thiel still think his books are the worlds foremost authority on its topics. Even the Catholics are too stupid to understand what he wrote.
Prophet Thiel still is really hung up on football. This will be a doctrinal statement and belief of the Continuing Ed Church of God. Members, especially children of members, will not be allowed to play tackle football. Football will become a major sin in this new personality cult.
Do not believe that any in the ministry should promote the sport of American Football (the Bible, in Romans 13:9-10 clearly teaches "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." 10 Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law"). HWA also specifically warned against this violent sport. There are other "love" issue matters.All blame for the rise of the Continuing Ed Church of God lies squarely on the shoulders of Rod Meredith and Doug Winnail. To go around and encourage a member that they were doing prophetic things and to keep telling him he had a gift of prophecy was appallingly stupid. LCG deserves whatever flack they receive from prophet Thiel's escapades.
