Dave Pack, God's most superfantabulous COG leader ever to life such a pure unadulterated life is laying down the law on what members should not be doing.
The splinters are allowing in more and more of the world’s ways—and not gradually! Here is a list of just some of the wrong ideas now so prevalent in these groups—wrong government—altered definitions of what is the true Church and Body of Christ—birthday-keeping—wearing of makeup—mixing the Person of Christ with the gospel of the kingdom—believers marrying unbelievers and other improper marriages—de-emphasis of Christ’s broken body for healing—voting—compromising or even dismissing some of God’s tithing laws—laxity regarding Sabbath dress—improper hair length for both men and women—tattoos and piercings (men and women)—lax or non-existent childrearing—parading themselves individually to the world on Facebook and other social media—women ruling over men, and children ruling families—never mind immorality, overdrinking and rotten music—there is no literal Place of Safety because God will “protect us right there in the world that we are so a part of and don’t want to give up”—among so many others that could be included. This is what happens when an “open door” policy is administered, saying, “Come on in and join us, world.” Throughout the splinters today, a great many doctrines and traditions of the Church (II Thes. 2:15; 3:6) have been ignored or tossed aside like old shoes. Besides all of the above thinking, a host of other—new and bizarre!— false teachings (often about prophecy) have also appeared throughout all of these organizations.
