In a short blurb on LCG's "Tomorrows World News and Prophecy" they were discussing the sad state of affairs in Somalia and the famine that is killing men, women and children. More than 29,000 children have died in the last three months alone. Is LCG and it's members really concerned about them enough to do something? Is there a new LCG on the horizon?
Is LCG going to help alleviate the pain and suffering that parents have when their children die in front of their eyes? What about the kids who lose their parents? Don't count on it! LCG has no intention of doing anything to help those people! Instead they dish out their worthless religions rhetoric that they (LCG) think is comforting.
LCG, it the grand tradition of thinking of itself as the ONLY ONE TRUE CHURCH has this to say to the starving, the homeless, the poor, the hurting, the strange along side the road: "Don't worry! There is something better coming along sometime in the future. God's going to fix it all for you. Don't be foolish and morn your children. They will have another chance sometime in the future. If we give our money to you then we cannot preach a gospel that the world sorely needs. It's more important to be on WGN at 3:00 in the morning than it is to ship a few bags of rice to feed you." "You are not of British Israel stock, (which is apparent because of your dark skin) and we need to focus our awesome message on white Israelite nations. You will have your turn in the future after you have died."
What a loving Christian message LCG preaches to it's people and to the world!
But the ironic thing is that LCG continued that article with Bible quotations that they thought were aimed at the world around them. They said:
LCG assumes this is an indictment against the those around the world who see the famines, the after effects of the earthquakes, floods, tsunami's, tornadoes, and hurricanes. LCG assumes this scripture is about squabbling nations, and rich nations who have an abundance of food while others suffer.However, there is a God who cares, and He instructed the prophet Ezekiel to write concerning the people of Jerusalem, “put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it” (Ezekiel 9:4)–God notices those who are saddened by atrocities they see around the globe! He is not pleased with people who squabble and “feed themselves,” while other human beings suffer. Jesus Christ also prophesied that one of the signs of the end of the age would be famines in various places that would kill many people (Matthew 24:7, Revelation 6:5-8).
What LCG fails to recognize is that this scripture is an indictment against the Living Church of God! LCG and all the COG's are constantly squabbling and bickering with each other. They condemn and disfellowship each other with ease. They continue to demand that members send in tithes to keep the Church and it's leaders in their fancy offices, their nice homes that are stocked with every pleasureful thing they can buy, their refrigerators and pantries overflowing with food. Their riches increase as they turn a blind eye to the suffering around them. They will not even help the homeless in Charlotte let alone half way around the world!
God is not pleased with the people of LCG because they squabble and “feed themselves,” while other human beings suffer!
