The Living Church of God has having another "men's training camp" in order to make their men be men and to rule their households. LCG men have never been able to measure up to the high standard that Rod Meredith set for men to be masters of their dominions and heads of their families and spouses. Far too many LCG men have been labeled as milquetoasts and have been inadequate leaders. Add to that the bed hopping examples of the McNair and Meredith boys and some LCG ministers in Charlotte, then yes, there is a crisis in leadership.
LCG men MUST be leaders of their families and pillars in the church and the community. What's that? Leaders in the community? Since when has any LCG member been a community leader? LCG members don't vote, they have been encouraged to not be a part of the world and not get involved in leadership. What example have the men of LCG ever set in their communities? What example has the church leadership EVER set in the communities they've had their HQ's?
Northeast Men’s Training Camp 2017: “Following Christ”—Change in Deadline: August 1
As husbands, we’re commanded to be the “head” or leader of our families. Elders are given the duty of leading in their congregations. And as pillars in our Church and community, we’re given the task of setting the pace, being examples, influencers, and leaders. Yet, can we lead well without ever learning how to be a good follower? Did you know that Christ was and continues to be the most powerful example of the perfect follower? Can you and I be followers like Christ? These questions and challenges will be at the heart of our 2017 Men’s Training Camp. Come prepared to wrestle with these real-life issues as we face the challenge of being better, more Godly men.On the main web site it states these themes for the weekend:
We live in a time of crisis for men in our society. But there are ways to fight the demise of the Godly role of men in the family, community and society. The best mechanism is to have Godly fathers and male role models in the church. We can also offer education in sermons, Bible Study topics and Spokesman’s Club. But a concentrated, focused “Spiritual Training Camp” is another mechanism that is a real help for our men.The COG, under Rod Meredith, has always been living in a crisis mode. The world is evil, the gays are flinging glitter everywhere and transvestites are proving to be more masculine than many LCG men. The world is coming to an end!
Therefore, Jonathan McNair will be teaching the LCG men how to be REAL men! He will be training them in the fine points of how to be a man. Jonathan McNair? Seriously? Imagine sitting down for a weekend and having Jonathan or Lil'Jimmy lecture you on how to be a man. It is vomit inducing!
The purpose of this weekend activity is threefold.
First, to gather men together with other men to build bonds of brotherhood, building and deepening friendships. Men need to know and respect other men in the church. That takes time and face to face contact.Respect men in the church? Where and who? Who have been men of integrity in the LCG? Look at the corrupt men who organized Global, then took all their money as they then corruptly started LCG. What about the abusive ministers who have treated members like shit for decades? Is that who LCG men are supposed to respect? Who is Terry Ratzman supposed to respected after the perverse teachings of Rod Meredith drove him off the deep end?
Second, we need to continue to learn together how to be better and sharper tools in God’s hands. In other words, this weekend is a time of “continuing, concentrated education.”"Concentrated education?" On what? Keeping the law better? How to be submissive to Gerald Weston and all of his commands? How to bow down at the altar of HWA and Meredith?
Third, we need to worship God together. We need to do this. We face a society that is hostile to God. The challenges and temptations create a minefield for us and we, together, need to beseech God for His help to navigate this spiritual minefield.Worship God? But in the meantime ignore Jesus and anything he taught. I can almost guarantee that Jesus will get the short shift of the weekend. A few mentions of his name and everything will be ok, but the law will be promoted all weekend.
This weekend will be a “spiritual bootcamp”!
See you there!

The best thing any real man could do in the Living Church of God is take his wife and children and LEAVE the church and set he and his family free!
