Every time the Living Church of God thinks they are proclaiming a "forceful" message, Satan steps in and makes life difficult. Gerald is not too happy that the LCG broadcast has been censored in the UK and Australia for subjects and graphics used that might be offensive against Parental Guidance standards. This is sure to send Malm and Almost-arrested Thiel into yet more meltdowns. Malm will claim LCG is pussyfooting around by not being bold and forceful and Elijah Thiel will claim it is yet another attack by Satan and those damn Catholics against the true church. Oh, wait, LCG is NOT the true church, the improperly named "continuing" Church of God is. It all gets so confusing as to who is right and who Satan is attacking the most.
Life is getting back to a more normal routine now that the Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread are over. We have experienced some difficulty with our television stations in Australia and the United Kingdom. Apparently some subjects and/or graphics used on our programs do not meet their Parental Guidance standards. This is rather remarkable when you see what else is allowed under PG standards, but the stations have control of the situation and we have to work within their scruples. I mention this because some members think our programs need to be stronger, not realizing that we try to thread the needle between preaching the Gospel and warning the world, and maintaining our presence on television. Even the Internet is not as free as one might think. Dr. Meredith and Mr. Ames have done a remarkable job over the years in threading that needle. Some of us who are newer at it are having to learn. And at the same time, standards of what is allowed and what is not are becoming more constrictive in our politically correct world. Dr. Meredith continues to keep up with news as best he can from home. Mr. Ames mentioned today at lunch how much the cards and letters he has received mean to him.—GEW
The LCG, like all the other COG's get as close to the world as they can in order to seem legitimate. They have learned to "thread the needle" well after watching Herbert talk about a "strong hand from someplace." The phantom in the sky had more credence than that inconvenient dude they claim to follow.
