COG Members Sick of Being A Commodity to be Traded From One COG to the Next

In a stinging rebuke of Gerald Flurry and Dave Pack, the Loose Brick's Blog says this:

The various groups need to stop making merchandise of the brethren. We are not a commodity to be counted on to pay for their fancy building, colleges, new cars. Nor are we to be dispensed with when we don’t agree with every “new understanding”. If the members are asking questions, then be glad that we are doing what we are supposed to be, searching the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things are so. If the ministry is teaching the truth, they should have nothing to fear when members ask questions about it.

Cool. Somebody is actually thinking. Let's hope this is the latest emerging trend!

Yes, they think. But only up to a point. Once there's any doubt about HWA, WCG, the COG's, or any CORE fundamentals, for some reason, the brain shuts down totally.

"Oh sure, they merchandise us, blah blah blah, BUT its GODS CHURCH and He's with us, etc..."

There's a capped ceiling to the thinking and it's hard to break through it for so many.

People like Herbie were thinking, and that wasn't so cool.

But thinking about how to escape and getting to do is cool.
