Weinland Watch

Weinland Watch

Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery….

….Plagiarism not so much. Unsurprising though: Given how lifting other theologies, philosophies, and even entire tracts was par for the course under Armstrongism. I am hardly surprised that the “7th Day Churches of God UK” is using material from this blog with absolutely no attribution or indication that it came from anywhere other than “divine revelation”. Is James Whale perhaps a competing “end-time profit of god”?

Hey, I’m all for the dissemination of information, and if this info being on a CoG site will get more attention from those inside the splinters than it would otherwise (given that I am not a member of any of the current CoG splinters), that’s great! Interesting to note the 7DCoGUK has a little disclaimer “All rights reserved” at the bottom of their page however. Can they “reserve rights” for material nicked from elsewhere one wonders? Oh that’s right: All of Armstrong’s booklets had copyright notices on them didn’t they?

  2. This is NOT surprising… Why? Why? Why can’t people stop following these cults?

  3. Hey I look at it as a bonus (an annoying bonus but nonetheless): If Weinland is so nuts that even the other CoGs are denouncing him, that has to be some sort of warning sign right there!

  4. Looks like it happened again.

    But this time you were given attribution. Unfortunately not a link.

  5. Nice to know DOCTOR Bob got some use out of my hard work. Even if he did have to make the strenuous effort to remove “the additional blogger comments”.

  6. We who have been called into the Remnant Body of Christ by the Living God, through His Spirit, the One True, Self existent Eternal God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob (none of which,incidentally, were Jewish). We who worship God in spirit and in TRUTH are not judging God’s servants by outward appearance, nor by every word that has comes out of R.W.’s mouth. How many of you have really considered the nature of a prophet? And of all these audio-clips you are using against his claims of being an end time prophet and Witness, did you hear the words “thus saith the Lord God” even once?
    R.W. is a man and it is human nature to be defensive when the right buttons are pushed, to be anxious, and even to be doubtful at times. Does God’s call on his life make him invulnerable to human nature by divine fiat? Have you no concept of the degree of bravery it takes to speak out so boldly without any more assurance than your own convictions?
    Think for a minute about Noah before you start into another character assassination and imagine having the conviction to build a large vessel in the middle of dry ground, while your neighbors, family, friends and enemies alike question your sanity, and not merely for a year, but more than a century before the flood was realized, and all the while having the reputation as being a drunk. All the time they mocked God’s servant they had no idea God was showing them mercy in delaying the flood for so long. Unfortunately, we all know the way the story ends, no one repented and was able to board the Ark save Noah and his family. Or Elijah, who risked his very life upon his conviction, when facing a multitude of enemies over the issue of who the true living God is, and by the SAME voice in the spirit of his mind, filled a trench full of water ,saturating a burnt offering to God, believing Almighty God would ignite it before all of their eyes, the multitude and the prophets of Baal! Have you considered the possibility that many of you could be setting yourselves up for the judgment that fell on those evil men? Because whether you like R.W.’s delivery or not, or whether you can see truth in it or not, when you mock God’s anointed, you mock God, Himself. Have you not read, ” God will not be mocked, for whatsoever a man sows that shall he also reap”? And “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God”?
    Proverbs makes it clear that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. Do you not believe that God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble?
    As for us “misguided souls” following blindly after a so called “cult leader”, let there be no mistake about it, we follow R.W. as he follows Christ and the Spirit of the Living God. We are now, and will always be of One mind, in one Spirit, in pursuit of one hope of our calling, that the very nature of God be formed in us. And, if one of us is deceived, we are all deceived and this is between the Eternal God and His Remnant. For, by God alone do we either stand or fall and He alone will empower us to stand.
