Rod Meredith and entire LCG ministry to sell homes and give the millions in dollars in income they have been sitting on back to the Work.

Every since Rod Meredith wrote his latest letter to the Living Church of God membership,  complaining about how they are sitting on millions of dollars sin income, he has taken a lot of flack for it.  Always the one to set the right example and do what is right, Rod Meredith has decided to sell his own home and give the money back to the church.  His shining example has so impressed the cold hearted ministry of the LCG that they too have decided to sell their homes and give 100% of the proceeds back to the church.  The gospel message is so important to them that they want to set the right example and put the millions of dollars in income they have been setting on back into the work. Feeding the poor, taking care of the widows, orphans and the disinherited is now the focus of the Living Church of God.  Now we will see it grow as never before! The Kingdom of God will truly break forth in our lifetime!

He knows he has a short time to get the church for the soon coming Kingdom. He sees thousands of dollars sitting idle and he needs that money to get the church ready. So here is his plan. He knows you have to lead by example. He is going to ask all the top ministers to put their homes up for sale he also will put his home on the market Can you imagine the impact this will have on the brethren once the top ministers donate the proceeds from their homes and donate their savings then the brethren will want to follow their example. Now those ministers will rent apartments. With this new money Dr Meredith can begin to follow Jesus's words. Feed the hungry, look after the homeless, and visit the sick. Ministers will roll up their sleeves and work the soup lines at the homeless shelter owned by LCG

In our dreams....

It would be leading by example, and I know of a couple pastors who have done it, but they are not a part of any of the ACOGs. It's a Mark 10:21 thing. Unfortunately ACOG ministers would probably respond just as the young man who had approached Jesus.

The funny thing is, if they deeded their homes to LCG, they'd most likely still be able to live in them. The church would have the equity to apply to getting the Armstrongite gospel out.

They're probably saying to themselves, "But, that's different!"

I heard Dr. Doofy Doug Winnail was selling his entire collection of 70's suits and ties for the sake of the Work. Furthermore, he's pledging to forsake his entire hair dye budget in order to sacrifice so that the gospel of Rod can go forth to the ends of Mr. Roger's neighborhood.

I would love to hear Rod define or give an examples of members "sitting on hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars worth of money, property and other resources they very rarely touch.." What exactly is this wealth that members 'very rarely touch'? Is he referring to peoples pension money, the interest that they live on? Or the houses that the widows and grannies live in? Will he convince them to sell up and move to trailer parks or one room apartments. Isn't this what the Pharisees did, but for the 'work' of course:
Luke 20:47 Which devour widows' houses, and for a shew make long prayers (long, coworker letters): the same shall receive greater damnation.

Why not go all the way and make Soylent Green biscuits of the elderly, widows, and grannies. All for the work, but of course.

Has hell frozen over?

RCM would never do this. He's a greedy, entitled, vain little man.

Appearance means everything to him.

He respects wealth and power far above godly character.

RCM sits in his ivory tower commanding people to do things that he and his henchmen won't do themselves. Major hypocrite.

I understand that a new episode of the show "American Pickers" is going to Charlotte NC to rummage through the HQ, elderly members homes, and the widows, to find items to buy for the church fundraiser.

OMG!!! Very impressive!
Are hucksters Joel Osteen and his skank wife also donating their hair dye/hair stylist budgets?

MY COMMENT - The Rod of God and his merry men of ministers (Hey Moe! Hey Larry!) selling their homes and giving 100% of the proceeds to the Dying Church of God to finish "the Work"?

Yeah right! When pigs fly!

I thought this entire post was some sort of joke. Is it already April Fools? But then I realized the dumb tithe slave sheep will believe anything and will answer the Clarion Call and send all their equity into Charlotte HQ thinking that the ministers are doing the same. NOT!


P.S - I love Connie Schmidt's posts here on Banned!

April is early this year.

I remember a sermon in Pasadena where Ted Armstrong was talking about people needing to be at least a little reasonable when "sacrificing for the work." He took his watch off and held it up. He then said, "This watch cost about $5,000. When you hear that I have sold this watch and given the money to the church, then perhaps you can think about mortgaging the family home or farm for the benefit of the work. Remember that you have a responsibility to provide for your family and yourself." I respected him for that statement, perhaps the most reasonable thing I ever heard a minister say on that subject.

Do the ministers own their homes or are they owned by LCG? In the past WCG used to own the ministers homes and they were not officially permitted to buy their own home. That's a great way of making sure the ministers tow the party line. Any deviation and you're out. Not just out but homeless as well!

Most WCG ministers owned their homes. Pasadena was an exception because WCG/AC bought up as much property around the campus as they could plus the "freeway homes" (houses on a proposed freeway route that the church bought at bargain prices). In Big Sandy many ministers lived on campus on Faculty Row but I had neighbors who were ministers who owned their own homes. When I lived in other church areas, all the ministers owned their own homes or rented from a third party.

LCG does not own the minister's homes.

Ames and Meredith moved to Charlotte from San Diego where home prices are much higher. When they sold their CA homes they had tons of equity and it was a sellers market so they made out like thieves enabling them to buy their homes in NC where property values were far less.

their excesses are what brought the church to this crisis mode in the first place so it is appropriate that they should takes these drastic measurez...
