Those wild and crazy folk in Charlotte are at it again!
The Big Boys in Charlotte have given orders to lock all doors to the congregational meeting area on Saturdays. God forbid if you left you Bible in the car by mistake and have to run outside and retrieve it! The only way you can get back in is to ring a doorbell and wait for an usher to come and verify who you are. Then you might be let in, after a stern warning of course.
Things are even more serious in the Kansas City LCG church. They have hired ARMED security guards now to patrol the area while services are going on. Apparently it is OK to PAY outside contractors to do your dirty work on the Sabbath.
Putting one's faith in and relying on God's protection is NOT something that the Living Church of God seems willing to do. It lets the LCG members and the world know that there is a COMPLETE lack of faith by the leadership of the church. This seems rather odd considering that LCG considers itself to be the purest and most Godly Church of God in this dispensation. Is Meredith and crew anticipating Satan to commit a major attack on the church? The only trouble LCG has ever seen has come from within, not from the world around them.
It is understandable that many LCG members are outraged with these latest developments.
