It seems that some LCG members have gotten lazy during these horrific end times. Some do not even bother to come to church any more and just stay home a stream the sermons. Oh the horrors!!!!!!
LCG also knows that some of their sermons can have damaging results upon the church if they are released out into the "world." We saw what happened with a sermon by Rod Meredith the sent Terry Ratzmann off the deep end and murder LCG members during a church service.
LCG members are streaming sermons regularly and sharing passwords to friends so that they too can enjoy the sermons. Not for much longer though. Word has come down from on high to STOP doing this. Lazy Laodiceans!
We are happy to see that more and more pastors are using technology to stay connected to their congregations. The Internet can be a powerful way to do that, especially as many brethren are geographically spread out and the pastor can’t be in the same congregation every week. With that in mind, we ask you, brethren, please do not share passwords outside of your area. Your pastor’s sermons are prepared and designed with your local congregation in mind—not for brethren across the country or around the world.
From experience, we have seen that some brethren stay at home instead of going to services if they can watch a streamed service from another congregation. Church services are a commanded assembly, where we are not only attending to learn, but also to “stir up love and good works… exhorting one another” (Hebrews 10:24-25). God’s word warns us that as the end draws near, we should not forsake “the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some” (verse 25). With that in mind, please make every effort to attend when you can (of course, stay home if you are sick!). And when you do view or listen to your pastor’s messages from home, please do not share the password outside your pastor’s area.
