False Prophet Thiel Is Still Shocked That The Living Church of God Ignores Him

Prophet Thiel writes about how the Living Church of God ignored his articles and papers he sent them.  They refused to join his version of the "final work."  He still apparently finds it shocking that he is ignored.

While I did submit a detailed paper to my former church related to this on December 14, 2012 (which they failed to directly respond to, despite oral statements to me of support previously) since at that time I had hoped they would wish to be part of the final phase...
False prophet Thiel feels that there will be an "ecumenical" rise in the worldly churches that will persecute the COGers instead of the Catholics being the persecutors.  The false prophet tried to talk Meredith into accepting this vital truth many times. Each time Meredith ignored him.

False prophet Thiel also believes he is the ONLY COG out there that is BOLDLY taking a stand and preaching out against sin in the nation, something the wimps in the rest of the COGs do not do or are afraid to do.

A bolder, yet truthful, willingness to “name names” and call out what is happening will need to happen than the official COG groups formed between 1986 and 2011 have done–and this would seem to have to be led by the Continuing Church of God. (I have emails from one or more LCG evangelists where they objected to doing parts of this themselves, as well as notes from a meeting where they told me, and one was Dr. Meredith, that they were afraid that I was could become too bold and that they did not want to take bold proclamation steps that could trigger the persecution that they teach is biblically prophesied.)

Bob does not seem to understand that submitting something to an organization is not to taken as approval or agreement with the submission.

He thinks he is not being listened to but in reality he is not being agreed with. Big diff..

Now, now, Meredith isn't paying attention to you because at 82, he's too busy dying.

RSK said...

(chuckle) Maybe so, but I suspect he thinks if he publicly shouts that he sent stuff to LCG and got "ignored", later on down the road when there's a schism or a dropoff in the membership rolls he can claim "I prophetically warned them!"

(After all Meredith is busy dying, and power transitions in groups like the COGS already have a few tumultuous examples to follow. Its a pretty obvious guess. Or maybe I just have great prophetic understanding because I don't watch American football.)

I'm rooting for Bob as opposed to Rod, Gerry, Puker, or Paki. If Bob can take some people away from them, perhaps so much the better. On the other hand, his members will be a lonely bunch in that nano-cult of his.

Sadly, but of course, the more irrational, eccentric, and just plain offensive these guys become, and therefore intolerable, the more sure they are special and chosen.

Bob is yet another example as to the IMPOSSIBILITY of any group to
"all speak the same thing." Truly one of the Bible's more stupid dictates as it is simply impossible among humans. No group can agree on what truth is because the chance of the group getting it correctly, if there is correct "truth" is almost zero.

Churchs add to themselves by subtraction from others and multiply by their divisions.

Of course Meredith and everyone else climbing the corporate ladder is going to ignore Bob. They're all busy ignoring each other except when not to do so benefits them. In politics (and life), you never believe what people say, because they say it for its effect, not for its veracity. Intellectually oriented guys like Bob often fail in politics because they say what they think, expect everyone else does the same, and take everyone else at their word. So if Bob expects everyone to sit up, take special notice of him, and promote him to the head of the line because he thinks he's a good guesser, he's gotten hold of quite the wrong end of the stick, I should say. Besides, this is a stressful time for LCG. Everyone is preparing for the war of succession. Bob was just the first pretender to the throne to lose his head. So now his only option is to start his own political organization. I suspect that Bob doesn't actually have much talent in that area. Come to think of it, I can't actually identify an area in which he does have talent. Egotism isn't really an "area."

That's hilarious and spot on. Ego only gets you so far.

What BT fails to grasp is that nobody embraces or pays any attention to an insubordinate leper. For all practical purposes, that is what he has become to LCG, his claims of double portion not withstanding. By not remaining within the established authority structure (and authority is the most important concept in an ACOG!!!), he has divested himself of all credibility.

What could be more simple than that? No mystery at all. It is as it has been since 1934!

The highest form of insult is to ignore someone.

Engaging someone indicates that they have something you need and validates them.

Bob has been relinquished to the trashbin at LCG , an outer darkness. He wasnt even important enough to "Disfellowhip and Mark", and that may be the ultimate insult of all!

They are all cults who have no real faith but instead follow the old covenant. They do not know Jesus and so are only ever going to fight amongst themselves, beating their chests yelling "I'm better than you!". Such a pathetic lot. I do hope and pray they wake up one day before it's too late for them.

We ought to take up a special collection to pay Velvet's travel and per diem expenses for a holistic therapy session at Theil's physical therapy center. Given her special talents, we might gain some insights into his spiritual condition. Could be worth it.

What did I ever do to you, Anonymous, that you would insult me in such a manner? I would rather have root canals on all of my remaining teeth without anesthetic, than engage with Thielogical Bob in ANY way whatsoever. (Yeah I know you're being facetious, so am I.)

On a more serious note, it doesn't take any "special talent" to ascertain Bob Thiel's (deteriorating fast) spiritual condition. Unfortunately.

One of the PR problems for Rod's LCG is that of it's nuttiness.
The more "OK" it seems to people, the more likely people will be devout and send in offerings/tithes and all that good stuff.
If Rod were to give his blessing to Bob T, it would make his church even more nutty than it already is, which would invite problems from a business standpoint.

You can only put so many nuts in a Snickers bar before it becomes 100% nuts. Gotta keep the delicious percentages of nougat and caramel in it, to keep it tasty!
(In other words, no room for Bob T in the 'Snickers bar' of the LCG.)
