Its amazing the idiots that Armstrongism has created over the decades. The mere fact that some people still follow Wienland shows how people willingly allow themselves to be duped.
I honestly don't know how Weinland plans on pulling this off since David C Pack has declared that over 100,000 exCOG and current COG members will soon be flocking to him. Thiel claims he has the ONLY true church and expects many to come to him, too. These guys obviously never got the memo: "It Isn't Happen'n"
Fellowship and the 63,000
There are yet two primary areas of concern and importance that need to be addressed about fellowship as this subject of true fellowship is brought to a close.
The first area involves the eventual awakening and gathering of the 63,000 who were once part of the Worldwide Church of God although, we don’t know exactly who will be chosen to be part of that group.
So how do you judge whether or not you have any fellowship with them? First, no one should seek out such individuals. If there is any purpose in their coming into contact with you, then God will see to it – He will work it out. If any such individual contacts you or you come across them in some chance manner, then there are certain criteria for judgment.
If the conversation is one of friendship based upon the past, then fellowship may certainly be good, but always understand that it will only be on a physical plane until they are fully awakened by God. They should be treated with a spirit of acceptance and genuine kindness, with the inner hope of their potentially becoming one who is part of this great group, being soon awakened just as we were.
However, if they were a minister (ordained) in the past, they should be acknowledged with kindness, but not with any purpose of continuing fellowship. They should be considered as those disfellowshipped, as they largely have a judgment upon them as spoken of in the Thunders.
In addition, one last area for judgment where some would also be seen as disfellowshipped is if an individual is against the Church of God – PKG, and also if they are teaching and pushing their own ideas or that of some other group.
