Dave is throwing out a proof-text of James 5:1-6 as proof that all the splinter group leaders are corrupt
James 5:1-6The Message (MSG)
Destroying Your Life from Within5 1-3 And a final word to you arrogant rich: Take some lessons in lament. You’ll need buckets for the tears when the crash comes upon you. Your money is corrupt and your fine clothes stink. Your greedy luxuries are a cancer in your gut, destroying your life from within. You thought you were piling up wealth. What you’ve piled up is judgment.4-6 All the workers you’ve exploited and cheated cry out for judgment. The groans of the workers you used and abused are a roar in the ears of the Master Avenger. You’ve looted the earth and lived it up. But all you’ll have to show for it is a fatter than usual corpse. In fact, what you’ve done is condemn and murder perfectly good persons, who stand there and take it.
(6) Supporting this is an extensive New Testament passage written by the apostle James. In a context easily seen to be a parallel of the prophecy—for many reasons!—James 5:1-6 describes the riches of false leaders being corrupted and destroyed. It is interesting that James 5 starts out with “rich men” who are told to “howl,” only one indicator (a strong one) this is a New Testament parallel of the Haggai/Zechariah prophecy.Dave speaks with his usual arrogance ignoring the fact that he lives in a nice home in an exclusive neighborhood, is building a multi-million dollar complex to glorify his name, takes in a large salary, and is the cooperate owner of EVERYTHING that is the Restored Church of God - from cash, assets, and property.
Bragging and boasting his way through the Churches of God, his money is corrupt and his fine clothes stink. His greedy luxuries are like a cancer in his gut, eating away at his soul. He thinks he is piling on grandeur and wealth in order to impress the world and the COG, yet all he is doing is piling on judgment.
The groans of his workers abuse at his church HQ by absurd demands and teachings cry out against him. All Dave has to show for his efforts is a fatter than usual rotting corpse in Wadsworth.
What Dave has done and continues to do is condemn and murder good people in order to be the best.
