Ron Weinland, the imprisoned Church of God felon/ false prophet has written another missive from jail. As usual it is filled with fear based nonsense. Though this time more than usual. This article is all about "fear".
The Weinerdude writes:
It is wise to stop and ponder what is now directly in front of us. Fear is coming! It will strike every person. It is time to deeply consider that reality and seek to be better prepared for when that hour arrives, for it is coming quickly.
Fear has always been the biggest weapon of the Church of God. Fear of the "world." Fear of unconverted relatives and family members. Fear of doctors. Fear of medicine. Fear of psychiatrists. Fear of Germans. Fear of the Lake of Fire. Fear of not qualifying. Fear of pork products in your food.
Fear made people send in huge amounts of money. Fear makes members submit to abusive and tyrannical leaders. Fear separates family members from family members and friends. Fear causes members to send in 40% of their income and more. Fear causes them to mortgage their homes and businesses to give to the church.
The fear monger continues with:
Fear Is Fast Approaching:
Yes, fear is about to strike mankind in a massive worldwide manner and on a scale that has never before been remotely close to what is coming. Not even the flood in Noah’s day struck such fear. That is why you need to seek God’s help now to be as prepared as humanly possible for what is about to become a reality. No one will escape! Even God’s people will initially be struck by great fear. Yet we are not to live in fear, but instead we are to conquer it through faith and understanding of God’s plan and calling. Though we know and believe what is coming, it will still be a very trying experience, but it is not to be feared.
Apart from God’s Church, the worldwide confusion that is deeply embedded in every religious, governmental, and economic systemIs the Weinerdude implying that confusion is NOT found in the Church of God? If anything is struggling to stay alive right now it is the Churches of God. Hundreds and hundreds of splinter groups, all claiming that they are the only holders of the "faith once delivered." Underground groups are active in COGWA, LCG and UCG right now which will cause further pustules to develop over the next year or tow. New foolish prophets continue to arise like Thiel, Pack and Weinland, Flurry and E.W. King.
spiritual Babylon is now struggling to stay alive. Satan doesn’t want his system to end and is fighting to keep it alive, but it is now imploding on itself. The very thing Satan worked to create (spiritual Babylon) is the very thing that is rapidly moving toward a complete state of self-destruction. The ways of mankind do not work as they are based upon the ways of Satan, which do not work.
We are now at a stage in this final time for mankind where some of the greatest deceit and pride-filled lying is being promoted in order to move masses of people into a false confidence and security about economic governmental stability. This is being fostered most by those nations who are exercising the greatest pride and arrogance over others.
Weinerdude is right that we are now in the age of the greatest deceit ever in the Church of God. Pride-filled liars and fools promote themselves to the masses as the enlightened ones who are the only ones to offer them a real chance at salvation and escape to Petra. Truth only resides in them and not in the groups they broke off of. Other pride-filled fools are building mini-me campuses to impress the world as they use struggling members tithe money to fund their utopian nightmares.
Fear is what keeps the Churches of God going.
