Rod McNair Disfellowships LCG Member For Taking In And Caring For A Homeless LCG Member



The various Churches of God have always claimed that they are practicing first century Christianity.  According to scripture, that first century Christianity was about love for each other and for those around them.  It had nothing to do with the "law" but all about grace.

Then Herbert Armstrong came on the scene claiming to have restored that first century Christianity because his god had been so weak and impotent it had been lost for 1,900 years.  (Those nasty Catholics and pagans were far more powerful.) That restored Christianity soon soured and the COG became abusive. For decades story after story emerged on how awful the church was in how it treated its members.  A large percentage of that mistreatment came directly at the instructions of Rod Meredith.

In the 1990's when all of the changes were coming down the pipeline the church had the opportunity to really step out and embrace grace and love and do the right thing.  The Worldwide Church of God went on a purge kicking out members, disfellowshiping and marking them.  Employees were fired or laid off and told that the church had no responsibility to take care for them. 

Scores of groups broke off to start their own churches where they too had the opportunity to start anew.  Many claimed that was exactly what they were going to do.  The problems of the past would be wiped away and true love and mercy would abound.  Within a few months for some and a few weeks for others, that love was cast in the trash bin and the control and manipulation began with renewed vigor.

Gerald Flurry has created hell on earth in Edmond Oklahoma ripping families and marriages apart.  People have died because of his sins.  Rod Meredith formed two separate churches with each one treating its members like dirt.  Then Dave Pack came on the scene, and oh what a story that has been!  He claims to be the only one doing the work of God on earth today and is God's mightiest leader ever.  No love is ever discussed, nor is Jesus.  Instead he preaches about his god killing three other COG leaders as he breaks up marriages and families.  Truly that is COG love!

Love and grace have never been a hallmark of the current incarnation of the Church of God.  Previous generations maybe, but  never under the baton of Armstrongism.

Why do COG members sit there and allow this to happen to themselves and their friends?  They know it is wrong but none of them do anything.  When will any of them hold their leaders accountable?  Jim Meredith certainly will not bring in a new era of enlightenment for the Living Church of God.  Neither will Rod McNair.

Lest you think it will, just check out the following:



One person got fired and disfellowshipped because he took two of the others into his home. One had absolutely nothing, no money, no car, no home,no food, because his wife had thrown him out and everything was in her name. So he did the christian thing and took him in.

League and McNair came to him and told him he had to put them out on the street. To make them grovel and repent to them. He could not do it. It just seemed so unchristian. So they fired him and disfellowshipped him. And to make matters worse his wife was undergoing cancer treatment.

Disfellowshipping and marking isn't for ministry-only!

Romans 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

Phil 3:17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.

MY COMMENT - And these LCG hirelings is allegedly Christians? Would Christ throw someone - one of his own - out into the streets?

I thought the idiot Meredith claims the Philadelphian era mantle? Is this an example of his Philadelphian brotherly love?

Its been 70 years since Herbert Armstrong started his family fear religion business. By their fruits you shall know them. The Armstrong fear religion has produced ZERO, NOTTA, NO GOOD FRUIT in 70 years!

When will the dumb sheep tithe slaves wake-up and stop funding the idiot Rod Meredith and his LCG Armstrongite franchise business?

I John 2:27 - "But the anointing that you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need any man to teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you ALL things and is truth and is no lie; and even as it has taught you, abide in Him". Matt. 23:8 -10--"Jesus says for you have ONE teacher, the Christ (means the anointing or with God's spirit). John 14:26 - "But the comforter, who is the holy spirit and whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you ALL things". John 6:455 - "It is written in the prophets, and they shall ALL be taught by God". Hebrew 1:1-2 --"Long aggo, att many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also, He created the world". I Peter 2:9 - But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for His own possession that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light". Believers have been freed, given liberty to proclaim God's mercies not to be subjugated and be exploited by the "clergy" who are self-proclaimed and not authorised in the bible.

I guess we now know what would happen if Jesus needed a place to stay.

The Worldwide Church of God Samaritan

And by chance there came down a certain priest. When he saw him he passed by on the other side and said "Just find Jesus, He will help you."

And likewise a Lawyer, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. Since the man was the victim of religion, a legal con-game not an illegal con-game, he couldn't help him.

But a certain New Covenant-Samaritan named Tkach Jr. who had inherited the money that was stolen from the man and the cult that had wounded the man, as he journeyed, came where he was and when he saw him lying broken and bleeding in the road, he told him to just move on and find Jesus.

When the wounded man asked Tkach Jr. to bind up his wounds and stop his bleeding, Jr. said that he had found Jesus and hoped that the wounded man would too. And he said to the man, "I found Jesus and look at all that I have now, money, authority, praise, honor, I have need of nothing. I don't even need to help you, even though my organization is responsible for beating you and wounding you and the money that I have is YOUR money. Isn't Jesus good? Isn't religion wonderful? What a country!"

And on the morrow, when he had departed, he passed by the man still lying in the road and told him that he hoped he would find Jesus and to just move on and forgive all that his "miracle organization" had done to him and quit being BITTER since it would keep him out of Jesus' Kingdom. After all, he said, other churches are just as bad as ours is.

Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?

And he said, None of them had mercy on him, and the one who was the owner of the organization that had beaten the man and then wouldn't help the man, he was worse than them all because he could have helped the man with his own money that his organization had stolen from him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do NOT thou likewise. You will know them by their fruits and even I do not want to know them. They come to me saying "Lord, Lord" but do not the things that I say. Do they think they can misuse my little ones and I do not see it? One day they will stand before me in the judgment and give account of the evil they have done in My name. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth but, truly, truly I say unto you, then it will be too late because they know NOW to do good and do it NOT, for the love of money. They have their reward now. You cannot serve God and Mammon.
