LCG Members Perturbed At Feast Pre-registration Fee For Hawaii



Several Living Church of God members have complained about the latest information from LCG HQ in regards to pre-registering for the Feast in Hawaii.  LCG is charging a $25.00 non-refundable fee for the privilege of pre-registering for the Kaui site.  LCG members are also required to eat at least one catered meal on site.

This will make Lil'Jimmy's feast experience more memorable this year.  Hawaii is his favourite site since he gets to go there expense free and have all of his activities paid for.  Life is tough.

Church members can afford to go to Hawaii? Where did they steal the money from?

Non-refundable? The Weekly Update explains that if too many people apply and the site fills to capacity, some brethren may not be approved to transfer to the site. Wouldn't it be more ethical simply to stop taking registrations from people who won't be approved once the Feast site's capacity is reached? Demanding $25 per person (yes, husband and wife with four children must pay a $150 registration fee), when the applicants might not even be approved to attend the site, is a disgusting money-grab.

I went to the Hawaii feast site in the 1980s. The heat bordered on the oppressive. The late Jack Lord wearing his dark blue suite in the original Hawaii Five O, looked good on TV, but very impractical.

A disgusting money-grab?

So, what's new about that?

Wimp.

You call that a money-grab?

That ain't no money-grab.

If you want to see what a real money-grab looks like, check out David Pack's Restored Cash Grab (RCG) cult and its newly restored “common” teaching. Now that is a money-grab!

And that is the Real Truth.

Money-grabs are annoying, but it could be even worse.

Klepto-Dave of RCG infamy does money-grabs, third-tithe-sweep-grabs, fundraiser-grabs, savings-grabs, retirement-grabs, house-grabs, possession-grabs, etc.

Klepto-Dave's RCG is a real full-disservice cult.

It is totally a money grab. Say 1000 people register. That's $25,000 that goes straight to LCG that is not refundable and is not actually paying for the members' Feast at all. Disgusting.

I've been to Hawaii twice. Wish I could do it again, especially the big island, but not for any marathon of a feast. I'd like to sit under a banyan tree again, eat crabs legs with lots of butter, etc. Ah, Hilo beckons.

Jack Lord quote if he was in the LCG, ala Hawaii 5 -O...

To help us work up some Feast Fever, to get us in the Holy Day spirit, here's a special treat:

so they pay the $25 out of their second tithe funds....that reduces any excess funds after the Feast, so LCG gets nothing extra in the end.....(I'm assuming LCG requires everyone to send in any unused festival tithes)

What would Jesus do? (Not that LCG cares about what Jesus would do since they can scarcely even say the word "Jesus").

If He returned, would LCG charge Him $25 to go to the Feast???

LCG drifts further and further into the corporate world and farther and farther away from anything spiritual.

They should have the $25 go toward something... like the mandatory catered dinner. THAT I might be able to understand but having to pay to go to the Feast is ridiculous.

Let me translate:

LCG is broke and getting more broke by the week so they can't cover the hall rentals for the Feast. This fee will help them supplement that fee.

Being broke is also why they shut down Living University.

LCG members are waking up and that means less money for the uber corrupt men at headquarters.

Member disgust in combination with bad management (spending more than you bring in is a Jim Meredith special) are contributing to more and more cracks in the already shaky foundation.

Further evidence that LCG is not the COG. If it was, wouldn't' they be blessed?

They should open it up to ex-members of any WCG. I would love to go on an arranged trip to Hawaii. I would even follow some rules, like no criticisms, attending one or two services, not eating pork and dressing appropriate when in the presence of the converted. It can be a business opportunity to let some of us laodiceans tag along. Jesus welcomed all, he didn't have security guards checking people out.

LCG had better allow members to use "tithe of the (second) tithe" for that registration fee. For Hawaii, that would be the hot TOT.

In the Jewish community where I once lived, Sukkot was held in the local synagogues; there were no fees and no collection of tithes, but you had to be a paid-up member to be guaranteed a seat. You could also sit in a properly constructed sukkah for a while.
When Ron Dart organized CEM Feast sites, he mentioned that some could not afford to attend, and in the future many may keep the FOT at home. If that was the case for LCG, would a registration fee still be required? Yes - for one reason, for the cost of sending a drone to homes to collect tithes and offerings.

If Jesus was in human incarnation today, He’d be in LCG’s accounting department overturning the desks!

There are plenty of other feast sites that will fit your budget. Y'all are just jealous.

Jealous? Seriously? Of a COGWA feast site??????? ROTFLMAO! When I go to Italy now I truly enjoy myself. I don't need to sit and listen to the same lame ass sermon that has been preached for 30 years on some so-called holy day. Just how many of these boring sermons do people need to hear, particularly when it is a COGWA minister? Most of them need to go and sign up for Toastmasters International and learn how to speak. I have never heard a new sermon on a new topic in decades. It is the same old canned routine with the same quotations from COG literature and usually spoken by a man who knows next to nothing about the bible or the topic he is preaching on.

You really need to try Italy without having to take your kids out of school right after school starts. You cannot imagine how good that makes them feel!
