Did you know that Philadelphia Church of God ministers are gifts from
Seek counsel from God’s ministry.
We certainly need to take our family problems and concerns to God in prayer. But if you ask God for help, don’t overlook the fact that He may want to answer you through one of His ministers.
The ministry is a gift from Christ to help perfect you and build up the Church (Ephesians 4:11-16). Use that gift! Failing to do so can provide problems with the nourishment they need to grow. “Where no counsel is, the people fall,” Proverbs 11:14 warns.
Yeah right. As if any member of the PCG needs to go in and counsel with an untrained twit that is 20 years younger than they are. Not a single "minister" has ever had REAL training in counseling through a licensed program. PCG's training methods consist of Gerald laying down the law and the stooges enforcing it.
Why would a PCG member go the minister anyway considering the track record the PCG has in destroying families, marriages and lives!
Don’t fear asking for help. We all tend to harbor pride that makes us reluctant to approach the ministry. We don’t want to “admit failure.” Men in particular can resist wanting to reveal anything that looks like a mistake. Naturally we don’t want our sins to be discovered (John 3:19-20).Members should be afraid to ask for help! The ministry in the PCG holds peoples counseling sessions and the information shared against them whenever is expedient for PCG's purpose.
Stamp out that pride. “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper,” says Proverbs 28:13. That issue may well need the light of exposure if it is to have a chance of being overcome. Simply being “thought well of” isn’t worth not taking action.
Men especially had better beware what they share. If they have any aspirations for moving up and being used in the church; that depends on what they share. If the man can't keep his household in line how will he rule a church?
PCG families have been torn asunder by Gerald Flurry's asinine laws and rules. Children are leaving the cult in droves, marriages are crumbling, women are not being submissive, which all result in a lack of faith which is causing the huge drop in income.
It's not just a "few" members, it is a LOT! If you do not rectify the situation NOW you will Not make it into the Kingdom and will be dead for all eternity.
“Now please! Please, dear brethren, heed this! Many of you are not living the kind of family life that is preparing you for God’s Kingdom. And if you don’t repent, and reorder your whole family life, you simply won’t make it into the Kingdom! I mean that! It is life and death for all eternity!”
If your family is having trouble, don’t put on a front with the ministers of Christ. God already knows the problem anyway (Psalm 69:5). God’s ministers aren’t going to judge, condemn, gloat or belittle. They are only there to help. They know that every one of us still has human nature we are trying to overcome. Their patience and understanding will surprise you.
So once again you the miserable weak brethren cannot get things right. You never will be able to measure up to the lofty standards that Gerald has set for you. God's righteous perfect ministers have attained that glory in order to train you up from your wickedness.
