Why is it that the Churches of God feel that they have to weigh in on every single thing that goes on in society? As dumb as the water bucket challenge is, what business is it of ANY COG to stick their nose into it and throw out warnings? Why do they have to give their opinions about things like this when their own churches are filled with vile unchristian goings on?
LCG has always felt that their opinion matters in all things. Wait till you see the main reason as to why the LCG does not care for the water bucket challenge. Its quit laughable and silly!
From the LCG weekly update 8/30/2014
Ice Bucket Challenge: In America and other parts of the world where the Internet reaches, millions of people have taken the Ice Bucket Challenge—allowing someone to dump a bucket of ice water on their heads to raise money for a charity—and then posting a picture of themselves on Facebook to record this chilling event. While contributing to a charity is a personal decision, events like this can easily become an exhibitionist activity and another way to get your picture on Facebook in front of millions of viewers. While this is a seemingly innocent activity, there are medical concerns with such a temperature shock if a person has a pre-existing heart condition. As Christians, we are advised in the Scriptures to “come out” of this world and its faddish ways (2 Corinthians 6:17). Making a contribution to preaching the Gospel to a dying world might be a better way to improve the condition of mankind.
