What is WRONG with Rod Meredith?

 For decades now every single sermon, article, TV broadcast, magazine article and booklet has turned to comments about sex.  Through out his years of lecturing at various Ambassador College's around the world's class sessions have been filled with sex. Students coming in for counseling sessions ended up getting grilled on their sexual practices.  Baptism sessions turned into discussions of masturbation.  Sex has been center most in his mind for decades now.  Nothing pushes him over the edge more than gays and lesbians.  For the last couple of decades that is what he has brought up every time he opens his mouth.  Not only do his regular members have to sit and listen to this malarkey, but so do his co-workers.

On February 18 he sent out a letter to his co-workers and members. Instead of writing a letter filled with grace filled, Jesus oriented messages and exhortations, it was another sex obsessed end of the world manifesto's.

It has rampaging Muslims and violent Mexicans. corrupt governments, brats, and queers.

But we have turned away from that God! We are spitting in the face of the God of the Bible in many, many ways. In an Op/Ed piece in this Sunday’s New York Times (February 14, 2016), I could not help but note a piece about the problems of “same-sex” couples. 
As a box inserted in the article states:  “Some married same-sexers want to be called wives, or husbands or partners; some ‘hersbands’ or ‘wusbands.’ Ask them.” Early in the article a man “who married his ‘husband’ in California in 2008” states:  “‘Secretly, for years, I kept referring to him as my partner if he wasn’t in the room,’ Mr. Valenzuela said. ‘There’s something deeply heteronormative about ‘husband’ that feels like a betrayal of my very queer identity. Like, if I say it, people will picture him wearing a cardigan reading the newspaper by the fireplace. I do say ‘husband’ more now, but a tiny part of me cringes with shame when I do.’” 
What a shame for this man to—as he himself says—betray his own “very queer identity!”
My friends, the Jesus Christ of your Bible is coming back to this earth soon! Then, this “queer” fellow quoted above will want to vomit when he finally realizes Who he has actually “betrayed” and his real “identity,” a male human being created in the image of God! We who are “called” now to understand and who fulfill our calling as true Christians will have the challenge and the opportunity to teach, to train and to genuinely help such confused and deluded human beings who will finally understand and want to fulfill their real purpose in life as potential sons of God!
What makes Meredith think that he and the members of the LCG are gong to be used in a capacity to "train" individuals in his "kingdom" to come.  People would be seriously deluded if they thought the they wanted to be found in his "kingdom."  Who would want to be in a world where they would ruled over by these "god's"?

Meredith then says this:

Brethren, when we read the constant reports in the news about how corrupt governments all over the earth are crashing and hurting their peoples in the process, it is obvious that Almighty God will soon intervene! For the true God tells us in His Word:  “For I am the Lord, I do not change” (Malachi 3:6). So, Jesus Christ is coming soon (Revelation 11:15). That is truly the only hope for this corrupt generation!

How can LCG brethren be encouraged to be saved from corrupt governments when their own church is abysmally corrupt?  This corruption will soon be made manifest in court documents as the operations of the church are brought under the microscope for all the world to see.  Meredith's mental facilities will also be channeled.  If this case proceeds without a settlement LCG is in for some serious trouble.  The church really needs to be thinking about removing the man from office.

As the Church of God ages out and it's various splinter group leaders sink into old age, senility and consumed by Alzheimer's, the churches have a serious decision to make.  Bring in young leadership and reinvent itself or dissolve.

As a start, PLEASE shut up about sex!

Wouldn't you think that there would be SOME sane ministers in the LCG that would try to talk RCM into behaving more reasonably in regards to this lawsuit?

Brethren, the world is filled with false prophets! They are everywhere. They keep prophesying falsely in God's Name and Jesus' name! They speak presumptuously!

Brethren, we cannot do anything about these false prophets ourselves! They are to be put to death, but if we were to obey Scripture we would be persecuted -- sent to prison, even murdered for obeying God! How evil this present world is! While wicked men proclaim that they are 'Apostles' or 'Prophets' or 'Evangelists' you can be sure that God is ANGRY! He cannot tolerate this unrighteousness!

There is only ONE SOLUTION: God will send Jesus to wipe out and kill off every last prophet! This abomination will cease forever and Christ will bring us peace!

What a glorious time is ahead! False prophets will be thrown into the Lake of Fire! Your Bible says so!

Let us rejoice brethren, that the evil shall be destroyed from among us! Praise, glory and honor to the God Most High!

Of course, the members following the leaders of the Armstrongist churches of God (falsely so-called) will be stuck without their leaders who have been burned to a crisp in fiery judgment from God, but they themselves will be cast into outer darkness even as they have been in spiritual darkness.

Praise the Lord for His Wondrous Works!

As an AC student, I had to laugh about the fact that during orientation they told us to get our minds off sex, and then every day, we got a barrage of it from Mr. Meredith in Bible Class, in any forums in which he spoke, and in his sermons. Any time you have one of the top authority figures with certain odd ball quirks, there will be lesser authority figures who tend to imitate. It was not possible for students to get their minds off of a topic that they were constantly reminded of. Sigmund Freud, or Karl Jung would have had a heyday on the Ambassador College campuses!

His past remarks aside, there have been insinuations from some who have worked with him recently that Meredith is showing signs of dementia/Alzheimer's disease.

I can say from experience with my mother that in the early stages, the afflicted often try to make sense of their confusion and lapses by making one particular (usually innocent) person or group their blame object... no matter how logically you demonstrate that whoever is not to blame for whatever they're being accused of, the afflicted person can't quite process it.

Nah, RCM does not have alzheimers. Rumor through the grapevine is that he is a heavy user of LSD however! ;-)

Nah, but if so, he must have a collection of some of that bad LSD that bikers at Altamont were passing out.

My guess is that Rod has the same affliction that many other splinter honchos have-
Being hell-bent on being above others, and insisting others need to follow him at the peril of their eternal lives.

(Quote from HWA letter to RCM March 14,1980--- 36 years ago) were a harsh task-master over the ministers. You, yourself, find it difficult and perhaps impossible to TAKE what you dished out. Dozens of ministers would testify to that. You rubbed the fur the wrong way! That has been your life-style!

I love the mock Gary!!! I have nothing but contempt for that charlatan. The old coot Meredith is showing the world who he really is just before he dives head first into the lake of fire!
