The quote below is from James Malm's site concerning LCG. He has a lot of LCG members feeding him information.
LCG News: When I mentioned in the last post about the internal power struggle in LCG, I was referring to the push to groom James Meredith to succeed his father in place of a more qualified and balanced leader. The purpose of this was to be able to continue to use the Meredith name [which is the glue that holds LCG together] while a certain clique rules from behind the scenes. Notice the appeal to personal loyalty to Meredith in the letter.
Rod has been unable to control LCG since his stroke, and LCG has been ruled by very different people than LCG brethren realize. Rod makes some audios and does some things, but is just not able to control the inner workings of LCG and is getting weaker and weaker. James controls things as Rod’s personal assistant, and James in turn is manipulated by others.
Several elders are objecting to the situation inside LCG and have been voicing their concerns to their colleagues about the Nicolaitane attitude extant with James and buddies, and are seeking a successor who will be more concerned about the brethren. They include some senior persons and would be the trouble makers Rod’s letter referred to.
The fact that Rod has lost control is clear when we see that his big breakout Gospel message actually contradicted what Doug Winnail has been preaching about the great falling away and 2 Thess 2:3. Winnail says people who don’t accept his new teaching about the falling away are deceived. Are Doug and Rod now at odds?
This is about internal struggles within LCG; Bob Thiel has taken somewhat less than 200 from LCG.
This fast may be setting the LCG brethren up for the expulsion of several elders. If such action is taken; since these few are only the known ones and many others agree with them, others could also resign.
As I wrote some months ago now, up to a third could ultimately end up leaving LCG over the struggle between the Nicolaitanes that now rule, and the more moderates. Depending on how the brethren respond, this could be a major split for LCG.
