Below is a comment from another posting that asks a legitimate question of the leadership of the Living Church of God.
I don't want this thread to deteriorate into an attack on why this person stays in LCG. We all had our reasons for hanging on as long as we did. What this person asks is a legitimate question of the leadership who has set about a chain of command that is nowhere near merciful, just and loving. These are all qualities that any sincere follower of God wants from those who think they are the leaders.
This blog really frosts Rod Meredith and the leadership of the Living Church of God. It has allowed LCG members to publicly air their concerns and grievances about a church that many love and had high hopes for. The fact that a lot of LCG members are now coming here to find a free forum to do this shows how much the leadership of the LCG has turned a blind eye and is more concerned about keeping up appearances. Sadly in the history of the Church of God (Armstrong era) power has always trumped mercy, justice, grace and love.
I'm in LCG and I love my church and my church family. The events of the last year have been so upsetting to me. Why, why, why can't these men just do right and show the kindness and love that Christ spoke of????? Why do they have to be so hard nosed and hateful. I know some of the people that they have done things to and they are good people. None of it seems fair or loving. I pray and pray that they will wake up and get back on the right path before it is too late and they end up losing everything. People are talking of splits. I have been there before and once people start to talk about it, the foundation has been laid. Please WAKE UP!
If LCG headquarters ministers are reading this right now, please remember that Christ "desired mercy". Have you shown mercy? Have you shown love?
You say you are God's true church and I really want to believe that but your actions towards my brothers and sisters in Christ say something else. It is never too late to change. Each day is another opportunity. Please, please, please don't let your egos and hardened hearts ruin the church that so many people love and need.
