Ron, It’s Time
Moral of these articles and posts? I commend to you the following three links:
Weinland. You tried. Whether you were drinking your own Kool-Aid, or just handing it out, you played your hand badly. You painted yourself into a corner, and now those who were not members of “the scattered church” who you managed to suck in, are coming after you with tar and feathers—and the threats of litigation. The world is not the way it used to be, twenty-five years ago, and neither is “the scattered church”.
Trying to recruit those who had no idea about “the scattered church” and what it really means, was a bad idea. Because there are enough of us left out here who know the real truth about WCG and HWA and all the other acronyms that only Worldwiders know the meaning of. Recruiting (and baptizing) underaged children was an even worse idea, as I’m certain your legal advisors made clear to you when you revamped the church’s website.
No one is going to give you any more “coverage” beyond this. Your faithful few might cling blindly to your spiritualizing of all the thunders and the seals and the signs, but surely some of them are going to remember “If by Pentecost…….” Even if you no longer remember it yourself.
It’s time Weinland. Give back the money, whatever you have left of it, and stop preaching. Just as you said you would. You are true to your word in these things. OK? That’s what you said. It’s time. You have to either eat these words, or own up to them, but you can’t just go blindly ahead as if you never said them:
Finally, getting out of CoG-Land, which sometimes seems like a parallel universe unto itself, I offer my loyal readers the following link:
It’s been a slice people. But it’s time to move on now.
