Did you know that if you support Rod Meredith and his church that you will have true peace of mind? God still apparently deals in bullet pinots to get her message across.
Your Bible gives a mission to every human being on earth. It should be the number-one goal in your life. The Messiah, Jesus Christ, gives us a major key to tranquility and peace of mind: “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33).
The Kingdom of God is coming soon to this earth! Are you praying daily, as Jesus taught us, “Your Kingdom come”? When we see all the evils imploding upon the world around us, we yearn for the Kingdom to come. Do you have that as your mission? Notice what Jesus said in the next verse. When you seek a cause greater than yourself, you can find peace of mind. “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble” (v. 34).
Yes, Jesus came preaching the gospel of the Kingdom of God. You can read about that in Mark 1:15–16. Do your part to support that great mission. Seek to have a cause greater than yourself!How can anyone truly support a cause that is in such disarray as the Living Church of God is? How can a church claim to be doing the great commission when it treats its own members with disdain?
Next true peace of mind can be found in prayer:
Key 2: Pray About Your Worries
Share your anxieties with God in prayer. Suggest solutions to your problems.Everything about being a legalistic church is trying to do things to please its god. This all make logical sense to them when they make the comment above. To them it is great to pray but it is also your responsibility to suggest solutions that will change the mind of God. If you already know what needs to be done then why haven't you acted on it?
Then it is this:
Key 3: Seek Wise Counsel
The book of Proverbs contains some of the greatest and wisest counsel available to us as Christians— counsel from God Himself. God Almighty tells us: “Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom; I am under- standing, I have strength. By me kings reign, and rulers decree justice” (Proverbs 8:14–15).
When you read the book of Acts, you find that the early New Testament Church was unified as a spiritual family. We need one another, and we need one another’s help. Seek counsel from those who have true wisdom; long-time faithful and genuine Christians who have strong biblically based character. “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but he who heeds counsel is wise” (Proverbs 12:15).This could possibly be the most dangerous thing a Living Church of God member could do! Chances are high that you will be abused spirituality by the minister you confess to. Chances are even higher that you will be kicked out of the church and chances are even higher that you will be mocked from the pulpit by the very minister you counseled with. None of these men have professional training in counseling and mental health issues. Their "wisdom" comes from Meredith and the endless booklets and literature of the church, not from real sources and the still long held belief that demons cause mental health issues.
Seek God’s counsel by reading your Bible every day, and seek out wise counsellors who have demonstrated stability and biblically based character.
Like a good Church of God article it is important to talk about exercise. Because Daddy HWA talked about it, it is important for ministers to do it today.
Key 4: Do Not Neglect Physical ExerciseThe best exercise a Living Church of God member could do is to RUN as fast as they can away!
Hundreds, if not thousands of health reports and studies show the benefit of physical exercise as a tool for reducing stress. Years ago, I wrote in my personal book of life-lessons, “When depressed, go out and jog or run.”
Key 5: Maintain a Positive MindHow can a positive and tranquil mind be found in the Living Church of God? From the terrible abuses by Rod McNair who finds demons in the elderly to Rod Meredith smearing peoples names and reputations in the pulpit?
We all experience stress in our modern, fast-paced, information-overload world. How can we cope? We must clearly understand that, to an important degree, our mental health is a matter of choice. You can choose to maintain a positive and tranquil mind.
Key 6: Count Your Blessings
One way to help maintain a positive frame of mind is to remind yourself of the many blessings God has given you. Is your life perfect? Do you have every success you have hoped for? Probably not. But if you focus instead on the many blessings you do have, you may come to see that the life you have is perfect for you right now, and that you can be grateful for the circumstances God is using to help you develop His very character in your own life.
Jesus reminded us to choose the spiritual over the material. He made it plain just how much God loves us; He can easily provide all our physical needs. But to receive this blessing, we must first seek God’s Kingdom, and then all our material needs will be provided. “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things [all our physical and material needs] shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33).How can all physical and material needs be met when you are giving 30-40% of you income to leaders who have never worked an honest day in their lives? How many of these men have ever actually had their hands dirty? Its the same magical god that the prosperity ministries bow down to Please it and it will give you everything you desire, piss it off and its a fast trip into the lake of fire.
Can true peace of mind ever be found in the Living Church of God?
