LCG and the Final Training: Just Who Will Make the Final Cut?

Rod Meredith has his latest co-worker/member letter up and shockingly it is devoid of any gay talk, but here is plenty of demon talk and final training talk.

Meredith ends his letter with the following:

Please, co-workers and brethren, try to totally commit yourself to the God of the Bible and to His coming Kingdom! It is very real! It is coming relatively soon—sooner than many people believe! Those of us in this Work are going “all out” to prepare the way for that coming Government. We are trying to train those people who could be literal kings and priests assisting Christ in ruling this world in His coming Kingdom. We are a “team” to help prepare the way for Christ’s return and to prepare a “people for God” who really will surrender their lives to do His will and His Work with all their hearts! May God make each one of you more willing to be an active part of that “team” and be rewarded foreverbecause you have been willing to totally commit to the genuine future and to the real Government which will soon rule this earth and the entire universe.
With Christian love,

Roderick C. Meredith
This is the same old song and dance he has been writing about for decades.  The problem in 2017 is just WHO exactly is the correct group teaching the correct people to be kings, priests and future gods?  If Meredith and his crew are the only ones doing this then what happens to Dave Pack's crew who claims the same thing?  What about Gerald Flurry?  He claims he and his little band of degenerate scumbags are also training the true spiritual leaders.   How can all of that be when United Church of God and Church of God a Worldwide Association also claim the very same thing.  Is God going to pick a few from each group to make everyone happy?  Where does this leave super self-righteous Bob Thiel and his merry band of African members?

The other thing to consider with all of these groups is that they all intend to be safely secured in the desert of Jordan as they receive their final training in Petra.  Who is the rightful heir to Petra?  Is it first come first to rule, or will they all sit around a campfire and diplomatically vote on who reigns supreme?  Will they hug each other and finally agree they are  brothers and stop their petty grandiose behaviors?  Will Bob Thiel hug Rod Meredith and apologize and say "Can't we all just be friends, Big Daddy?"

Don't count on it!  All of these self-serving and self-appointed narcissists will never be able to give up control.  They have spent too many decades lying about themselves to everyone that they no longer have any humility left.  All any of them can do anymore is think about themselves and what new title they can dream up.  Just how many apostles, prophets, Pastor Generals, Chief Overseers, and doubly-blessed end time witnesses do we need?

Hundreds in United and COGWA have worked closely with Rod Meredith and can testify that if God puts Rod Meredith in any position of authority in the Kingdom of God, it will be indistinguishable from the Kingdom of Rod, or of Satan.

Dibar Apartian said truthfully, near the end of his life, that Rod Meredith had not changed in 40 years. No conversion, no growth.

Rod's own words prove him to be a liar. Rod always says that natural disasters are sent to turn people to repentance. Yet when has Rod ever taken a natural disaster as a sign that he must repent? Never. Rod always assumes that other people need to repent. Think about that for a minute. If Rod is truly the great man of God that he tells us he is, he should be the most responsive to God of us all. Yet Rod hasn't changed because of natural disasters. If even the super-Godly Rod doesn't repent because of natural disasters, why would anybody expect worse people, sinners and the unconverted, to respond?

Even HWA said there are no prophets in the last times.
And the scripture about false prophets waxing worse and worse implies there are none as well.
I believe the cult mentality of the church of god makes these people somewhat insane actually.
The church rejection of scholarship lead to a church which has little knowledge about the bible outside of the ravings of HWA the chief daughter molester.

It doesn't matter anyway. These people are not the gatekeepers. Who even wants authority, anyway? In Armstrongism, you tend to want authority so that others who already have it have to treat you as special, and can't abuse you quite so badly. Hypothetically, in the Kingdom, the human propensity to abuse would no longer be present, so why would one want authority? Oops! Forgot! These cretins think they're going to be able to lord it over, and to get away with pulling their same crap on a larger scale when they get to the Kingdom! What fools these mortals be!

Rod says 'surrender their lives to do his will.' This is code for 'everyone surrender their lives to do Rod and his minions will.' This word surrender itself implies being passive and bossed around by others. How convenient for church bullies. A Christian is one who is assertive rather than passive or aggressive.

An egregious misquote. He actually said there would be no "profits" in the last times meaning that the WWCG members (= tithe payers) would be scattered among too many offshoots to provide any significant profits to any single one.

Sorry, on a third glass of wine here..

Christians are to grow in grace and knowledge. Knowledge! Looking at what they are still publishing is like taking a trip back in time for me to the early 70's. It is the same message. Have they learned anything new? Have the members learned anything new? Have they grown in knowledge? Sermons and articles are not for educating the members, but only reinforce what little they think they know as truth. Where's the growth? No one reads anything outside of the church.

Exactly Steve. A member can listen to thousands of sermons, and still be morally confused. This must be by design. It's a trait of tyrannies to keep their citizens ignorant to have and enhance government power. To these people, power is number one rather than the well being of their subjects.

RCM said "May God make each one of you more willing ..."

So if we don't become more willing is it God's fault for not making it so?

As long as the Cult of Herbert Armstrong Mafia continue to teach British Israelism, worst science fiction ever, and especially LCG actually teaching a class at Living University, none of the Armstrongist churches have the truth and none will ever come to the truth.

As long as they are anti-STEM they will never progress beyond the insanity of Richard Brothers.

If you go to a church run by a Rod you will get shafted.

They are only against a few things in "science."

They are not anti-technology. They have smart phones, cars, plastic, and computers. Turgeon's wife has an electric dildo.

They are not anti-engineering, they're just no good at it. They are not anti-math. I've never seen them write an article on Satan's control over math.

Rod lies again when he writes: "...Please, co-workers and brethren, try to totally commit yourself to the God of the Bible and to His coming Kingdom! It is very real! It is coming relatively soon—sooner than many people believe!..."

Rod's Mickey Mouse kingdom will not appear anywhere on earth "relatively soon-sooner than many people believe!" Such baloney! Satanic baloney? Time will tell.

God's Kingdom isn't scheduled to be on earth until AFTER Satan is loosed from that pit and totally deceives this world again.

Revelation 20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

Rod, that is over 1,000 years from the time you made those comments above! Satan deceives nations in all four quarters of the earth!!!!!!!!!

Where was Jesus Christ? Hiding in some 5th quarter? Jerusalem is going to be one huge mess! Were will you, Rod, be? Helping Jesus Christ out? No way! You will never see that! Lying about prophecy is not the way to assist Jesus Christ.

Are you striving to get into God's Kingdom some other man-made, satan-inspired way? Be careful, because it may come out like the following that Jesus warned about:

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber." John 10:1


Others have tried that and guess what happened? Jesus' words again:

:8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.

Rod, teach Doug Winnail and the other babes amongst you the truth for a change, b/c they don't see the truth of God's Kingdom coming any clearer than you do!

Truth be known:

God's Kingdom is NOT coming relatively soon—sooner than many people believe, but

Time will tell...

Nice observation, but have you ever considered the possibility that while they are anti on these things, they exploit and use them in the present wherever possible as a means to their end game?

Reality is, they don't think of the Millennium as being similar to Star Trek or the Jetsons. They look forward to a return to agrarian times as being what God intends as the natural and permanent state for humans. This is what has been taught for decades. They are against any form of science which confronts or refutes their beliefs. Some would assess that attitude as wearing blinders, blocking out truth soas to continue believing deceptions because it feels good to do so.
