Another issue of Rod Meredith's doom and gloom rag is out in print. Every single issue of this magazine and ever single letter that Meredith writes is filled with horrific scenario after another. Damnation, starvation and death are the code words of the day.
Every word that Rod Meredith has uttered in the last 70 some years has been one lie after another. Every single "prophecy" he claimed would happen by this time has failed. The Churches of God have been ripped asunder and are impotent little cash cows for desperate rulers. This continues to prove terribly frustrating for Meredith and crew. Meredith constantly has to look back on the "glory days" of yesteryear in Armstrongism.
Believe me, my friends, God is watching! He is not going to give eternal life to those who just “go along to get along.” Please understand this—for your good and the good of your family and loved ones. So I encourage all of you to begin to study the dozens of powerful booklets we send out from this Work absolutely free. Also, I pray that more
and more of you will set yourselves to request your free subscription to our Tomorrow’s World Bible Study Course and actually complete the lessons and study the Word of God so that you are, in fact, able to prove the full Truth and purpose of God in a way you may never have done before. Then, after you have truly proved what God says and where He is working, you can become part of the “team” and do your part in helping to take His message out to this world with increasing power. As Jesus Christ Himself said, “My food [His strength and reason for being] is to do the will of Him who
Just what is he so grateful for? The trail of death he has left in his wake? For all the good marriages he ripped apart because of the draconian "divorce and remarriage" policies he helped institute? For all the deaths he caused by making people reject medical help? For scaring small children to death with his meat-hook stories, concentration camps with stories of parents eating their children?Back in the late 1940s and 1950s, I was privileged to be part of the original “team” that helped Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong do this Work with increasing power. But we did not do it “all by ourselves.” We were encouraged by him—and by one another and God’s inspired Word—to truly “go all out” in giving our lives to God, and seeking to understand and to teach His Word and to reach this world as best we could. I am very grateful to have had that opportunity.
The failed fraudulent belief system of the Church of God cannot be resurrected. We have seen that in practice of the last 70some years. Hundreds and hundreds of splinter personality cults have broken off all claiming they are the only truth out there. Rampant sexual immorality by the ministry. Overwhelming misuses of tithe money for personal gain. The church is filled with widespread mental health issues due to the asinine sermons preached week in and week out. Suicides, rapes, stalkings, child abuse and murders seem to be the legacy that Armstrongism has wrought on the membership. Yet that is what Meredith wants to recapture.As I draw closer to the end of my life, I often think back on those days and wish with all my heart that we could rekindle that kind of zeal among God’s people to truly be willing to work together, to sacrifice together and to proclaim His message so that we have a greater genuine “impact” on the world than ever. As the darkness descends on this world’s society and its governments, let us all strive to be “children of light.”
