There have been countless stories and rumors floating around foe the last year or two about deep divisions in the Living Church of God hierarchy. Rod Meredith had to speak out at this years Feast of Tabernacles telling the members and employees that "...they MUST obey us!" Many are waiting for Rod Meredith to die with hopes of taking the LCG into a more graceful direction that is more merciful. Die hard extreme legalists what to take it even further into legalism. Its going to be one big mess once Meredith dies. If his son is put in charge you can be guaranteed that there will be a huge exodus of members out.
LCG is deeply divided between the hard line leadership types demanding absolute obedience, and the permissive folk with none being faithful to the whole Word of God. As Rod Meredith said at this Feast first High day video “We were placed in control by God and you must obey us” which is Roman Catholic Nicolaitane heresy! It is fear religion and loyalty to Rod that is keeping LCG together for the moment. James Malm
