Living Church of God's John Wheeler has a humorless posting up on how LCG servants are better at humor than the world around them.
Wheeler takes offense at those who might make jokes about or mock his god. However, it is perfectly OK for LCG ministers to mock and ridicule those they call "so-called" Christians around them. It is OK to make fun of them every chance they get. Just look at the bad fruit that LCG produced in Bob Thiel. He mocks Christians every chance he gets.
We humans can take humor one step farther and joke about the ultimate questions of existence. If there is a God who cares for and rules over men, though, then joking about Him is dangerous ground to walk on. But surely it is amusing to those with eyes to see how foolish man can be in his devotion to false gods and false concepts. In the Bible, Elijah (1 Kings 18:27), Isaiah (Isaiah 44:10–20), Wisdom personified (Proverbs 1:24–27), Paul (2 Corinthians 11:1, 16–18, 21, 23), and even God Himself (Psalm 2:4), all employ different “senses of humor” to challenge false gods and false concepts on their own grounds.
LCG ministers and elders have a God given talent for humor when they use it in sermons or to "righteously" mock church members they have disdain for or those poor unconverted satanically deceived so-called Christians..
God’s servants could do this because our “sense of humor” is rooted in a major “defense mechanism” of the human mind. We can use humor rightly to laugh at our own foibles; we can use it as a way of defending God’s truth. The problem comes when we use humor to mock or scorn other human beings, human authorities that God has ordained, or worst of all, God Himself, His law, His grace, and His promises. The Bible has a long list of warnings and examples against “mocking” and “scorning.”
Paul wrote to Christians: “[Let there be] neither filthiness [among you], nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks” (Ephesians 5:4). The Greek word behind “coarse jesting” is interesting. Aristotle, in his Politics, used it to describe what we might call “college-freshman humor”: as clever and skeptical as it was coarse. It denigrated its targets—it did not build them up. Does this sound familiar? It should. Such humor fills the speech, the “sitcoms” and the movies of our modern world—to say nothing of social media on the Internet!
So where is our “sense of humor” directed? Do we use it to help us see how deceitful our own minds are (Jeremiah 17:9), to defend the truth with wisdom, or to dishonor others made in God’s image?
The answer to this question is to write in to get LCG's booklet What Is A True Christian. There you will learn that there are NO Christians outside the environs of the Living Church of God.
