LCG Claims Disfellowshipments and Markings Are Therapeutic

Did you know that when LCG or any Church of God disfellowships a person  that it has therapeutic benefits for the person and the congregations?  Treating people like shit and publicly humiliating them is therapeutic...who knew!

A sad but necessary function of ministerial authority is to disassociate certain individuals from regular fellowship.  The Bible shows the Church is to be clean (1 Corinthians 5:5; 2 Corinthians 6:14,    17; Ephesians 5:27).  Occasionally, it becomes necessary to initiate a therapeutic action for the good of an individual and the Church.  This action (hopefully temporary) is to expel a person who has brought sin into the congregation.  We understand that we are regularly dealing with persons who are at varying spiritual levels, including the following:

Faithful members Members who are very weak and may not be truly converted Non-members, some of whom:

• Understand but do not subscribe and are peaceable.
• Do not understand but are peaceable.
• Do not understand but are not peaceable.

Former members of the Church, some of whom:
• Wish to return
• May be vindictive

Did the Living Church of God dis-fellowship Terry Ratzmann posthumously?

The only good thing about disfellowshipping a person is that the "church" did something that an individual wanted to do but was afraid to do. Like leave!

Can you imagine Jesus Christ giving up on someone just because they had a bad attitude, dared to question or said something negative about the ministry?

LCG says they follow Christ but they clearly don't.

Satan is the accuser of the brethren.

Satan wants God's people to be cut off, isolated and pushed into the ways of the world.

Satan wants you to feel hopeless and alone.

God is love. God is forgiveness. God is hope. God doesn't get offended but offers unconditional grace.

I am so grateful that God is nothing like the men at LCG headquarters in Charlotte (Spanky, Lil Jimmy, McNair, Ceseilka, Ames, etc). If He were, we would all be royally screwed.

Markings are therapeutic.

Getting out of an abusive situation can only make life better!

It may hurt at first but in time those kicked out of LCG will realize how miserable being part of that corrupt organization actually was. There lives will improve exponentially.

This has never made sense to me. How can anyone characterize being thrust out of the sheepfold (where the "ravening wolves" and "roaring lions" are just waiting to gobble them up) as therapeutic?
