Living Church of God is still continuing to ask for money to go into the fund. They claim that this money will be used to help send youth to the various summer camps AND for providing IMPORTANT services to the church youth. That comment is drawing a lot of negative responses.
Just what criteria will the LCG use to determine what is an IMPORTANT service for the youth. This opens the door to wide spread abuse. This is nothing new to Rod Meredith and crew, considering what Meredith has done in the past with church monies. In the 1970's he was caught using 3rd tithe to remodel his home. While widows and orphans around the church struggled, the privileged elite in Pasadena found convenient ways to manipulate the church coffers for their own purposes.
One person with connections to LCG recently said:
Living Church of God and trustworthy in the same sentence...oh my.Donations should be payable to Living Church of God and they are totally trustworthy so I'm sure they will only use the money for camp scholarships, right?
