Dingy Weinland assumes more power than he actually has when it comes to God's favor. Weinerdude thinks that he is so powerful that when he disfellowships a person they are immediately cut off from God. They no longer will have any help from God now His protection. More importantly Weinerdude removes God's grace from that person.
Apparently Weinerdudes god is so impotent that he allows Ron to do this. Weinerdude's god is such an impotent wuss that the person is immediately handed over to demons so they can be harassed, deceived and caught up in the turmoil of Satan's world.
If Weinerdeude thinks that by being a Church of God member a person transformed and receives all the answers he is mistaken. Look at the complete mess that Armstorngism has been for the last 80 some years. Hundreds and hundreds of factions and groups splitting off with hundreds and hundreds of leaders all claim they have the only way towards salvation. Untimely deaths, murders, suicides, divorces, rapes, child molestations, destroyed families, ruined businesses, etc. is the enduring legacy of Armstrongism. Just look at the utter mess that Weinerdude's own personality cult is in! Where is the deliverance and transformation in that?Before someone is called, they are in bondage to Satan’s system and his world where he deceives, wrongly influences, and perverts. When brought into the Church, God begins the process of deliverance and protection from that being and his demons. Although all human beings will suffer in this world, both in the Church and out of it, only those within the Church does God give the only means for deliverance, answers, and transformation that is able to lead them to permanent change and peace that gives true fullness of life.
When people continue to follow this fool is beyond me. No Armstrongite minister has this power, never has and never will.
Yet when someone in the Church is severed (cut off) from the continuing flow of God’s spirit in their life by becoming disfellowshipped, they are then separated from God’s continuing flow of spiritual nourishment that is given with the spiritual help (means and inspiration) to receive (see) it. They no longer have access to the unleavened bread of life. They are actually cast back into Satan’s world without God’s grace, help, protection and favor in life. Not only that, but in many ways they now become targets of harassment, turmoil, and deception from that demonic world. The ability for that evil spirit world to now have open access to such individuals is taken as a kind of perverted sense of victory against God. However, God has a plan whereby He will still work during “another time” to deliver those who have become permanently disfellowshipped.
