Despite repeated denials by the upper echelon at the Living Church of God all things are not bright and beautiful or unified.
We are soon going to be witnessing ministers leaving Living Church of God because of the "liberal" policies of Rod Meredith. It will be interesting to see what these men claim are the "liberal" polices and beliefs that Meredith his been espousing. Meredith is not known for being a liberal.
It also seems that the recently defected ministers from David Hulme's personalty cult are not too happy in Living Church of God either. Will they soon defect elsewhere?
A reader here posted:
Rumor is that the three Hulme elders who defected to LCG are already reconsidering their decision, in light of the fact that several prominent LCG elders will soon be announcing their move to another Church of God group (not Thiel's group, and not RCG).
Since the death of Sheryl Meredith, a new wave of discontent has rocked LCG. For years, conservatives in LCG were told privately that Sheryl was the behind-the-scenes cause of many of Rod Meredith's liberal or nepotistic decisions. Now, with Sheryl out of the picture, people are realizing that the problem has been old Rod all along.
Rod is a liar.
Rod will lie to protect his family.
Rod will back other liars who defend him and make him look good.
Rod will soon have a much smaller church to give to his children.
Then, to add more fuel to the fire, James Malm had this encrypted message up today:
COG NEWS: I need to be as circumspect as I can here, but I do want to present some idea of what is happening so that people will not be taken by surprise. I do not want to upset anyone’s applecart so about all I can say is that there are various elders in discreet communications with certain COG Groups about changing their affiliation. I can also say that they will not be going to RCG and that this may take some weeks yet.
Things are not rosy in Charlotte and it will be interesting to see how the spin doctors rise up and deny that things are amiss in the Living Church of God. We will be regaled with words of encouragement about the great unified family that exists in the LCG. At no point in the history of the Church of God has the church been more unified.
Poor Jimmy Meredith may soon have to put in an application at Walmart.
