I received this the other day. It details once again just how nasty the leadership is in the Living Church of God. More mistreatment by Bob League and Rod McNair. Why do/did members put up with these two slim balls?
I read some of your blog posts with great interest. Rod McNair is a very nasty, suspicious man. I truly hate to speak ill of the dead but, Bob League was an evil man as well.
My boyfriend is a former member of the WCG. He also used to work for Ron Dart & Ted Armstrong. He also graduated from Ambassador College.
He would tell me all of the horror stories about Herbert & people being "disfellowshipped" for insane reasons. I begged him to take me to visit the LCG congregation in Charlotte.
He went on his own in the summer of 2014. Now, understand, that he knows many of the members of the LCG in Charlotte because of his long history with the Church of God. That was the first time he had been there in 4 or 5 years.
My boyfriend owns a bible college and we also have a Sabbath keeping congregation that meets in the morning. He likes to be able to go to other churches to be fed, not to steal congregants.
One of the members of the LCG ran and "tattled" to Bob League that my boyfriend was there. Bob and three other men took my boyfriend in to a room and proceeded to scream at him. They told him that he had no right to start a college. He didn't have the authority to do it. Well, the state of North Carolina gave him the authority to open a bible college. My boyfriend doesn't answer to the LCG.
I thought he was joking when he told me this. It was just so absurd. No, he wasn't joking. Those men had the audacity to tell my boyfriend that because the LCG didn't authorize his college, he had no right to open it.
Summer 2015 I finally talked him in to taking me. We got there late so, we slipped in the back. When the service was over we went out to where everyone was having snacks. Someone must have told Rod McNair that we were there because he made a bee-line for us. He took my boyfriend in to a room to question him about why he was there We were just there for fellowship. No other reason. No one would speak to us. They treated us like leapers.
A month later, my boyfriend when back with one of the professors from our college. Just to visit, no other reason. As soon as Rod McNair saw him, he immediately started interrogating him about why he was there. He tried again to explain that he was only there to fellowship.
A couple of days later, Rod McNair called my boyfriend. We have NO idea how he got his number. He told my boyfriend that he wasn't comfortable with him coming to their church. The only reason he would give is that it was because he has his own congregation. We weren't trying to "sheep steal".
Rod McNair was NASTY and mean. He told my boyfriend that he can't come back unless he calls and asks permission first. What church does this? My boyfriend does have his own congregation BUT, everyone is welcome. You don't have to go through a screening process to even be told where the meeting is. If anyone wants to come to our church, they are more than welcome. We want to share Jesus Christ with anyone that will listen. We keep the Sabbath and Holy Days and if people want to learn, we help them.
I grew up Southern Baptist so, this behavior by Rod McNair and Bob League is completely bizarre to me. Southern Baptists open their doors wide to every one. I never dreamed that so-called Christians could be so nasty.
