Poor Living Church of God. I have never see a Church of God that has to fight Satan as much as LCG does. Even Minion's right-hand man in Wadsworth never has this much trouble!
Doug Winnail writes another brief note to the membership of LCG stressing the ongoing Satanic battle that LCG is constantly fighting. Every single letter from LCG stresses the constant Satanic attacks.
Of course this battle is a direct result of the Spring Holy Days, days that God apparently cannot defend from the Wily-one who just cannot stand anyone eating matzo's.
As we approach the Holy Days, Satan always seems to become more active in the world and in our personal lives.A couple sentences later he says this:
At this time of year Satan also seems intent on stirring up problems and strife among God’s people wherever he can, so we must be on guard and not lose our focus on what these Holy Days mean for us and for all mankind—that there is a path to salvation that will eventually lead all mankind out of this present evil world.Um...if you are really a Christian who follows
In the next paragraph is a note from LCG Church Administration. They are none too happy that a large number of LCG members are marking LCG emails as SPAM. Things have to be pretty bad when your own members realize communications from Charlotte are not worth reading!
In addition to offering the Co-Worker letter electronically for many years, we have recently added email versions of LCG Member Letters and the Tomorrow’s World magazine. One of our responsibilities, as an organization, is to be a good “digital citizen,” and this includes requirements such as honoring “spam complaint” requests—which we do. One of the unanticipated surprises that we have discovered as a result of launching different digital subscriptions is that the vast majority of “spam complaints” that are submitted about us are from Church members.I can't stop laughing at this! Their own church members consider LCG's email as SPAM!
There is a reason though that LCG does not want this happening. It's all about numbers. The higher the number the more impressive they feel the public will think of them. Its all about outward appearances.
This was surprising, since we don’t send out unsolicited electronic mail, and we always operate on an “opt-in” basis. With that in mind, we would like to request that if you receive an email subscription from us, and no-longer wish to receive it, please utilize the unsubscribe method included at the bottom of any email, rather than simply marking the email as spam. This has two benefits. Firstly, it doesn’t negatively impact our reputation as an emailer. Secondly, when you report us as spam, your email address is black-listed by our system so that we can’t accidentally send you emails again in the future; with systems like MyLCG and festival registration, we need to be able to responsibly send you emails.
LCG brass just might want to consider that LCG members are SICK of hearing Satan constantly being blamed for the troubles in church. Troubles that are the result of corrupt men and leadership.
If you truly are a church of brotherly love then preach it and practice it.
