Can We Reason Together?

False Prophet Ronald Weinland gave his sermon from Georgia yesterday. His long-time elder Paul Worth gave the opening prayer which seemed like it was going to turn into a sermonette. Paul has given sermons for PKG but it’s been quite a few years. Willy Doemeland is having health problems as is Paul’s wife Elmira.

The organization for the Feast of Tabernacles this year.  Those who are able to attend should plan to do so, even though God’s most formidable prophet doesn’t know whether they’ll be able to.  I hereby prophesy that most PKG members will be able to attend the full 8 days of the feast and Last Great Day this fall.

The sermon was a continuation of the series he started last week.  He reminded us of the challenges he presented last week concerning whether he is God’s prophet and what-if? his prophecies did or did not come true.  I’ve made my statement last week.  He also made his and I don’t believe him as he’s lied before.

The thunders are going to increase and hit the US much, much worse than what Japan has experienced, making the Sendai tsunami puny in comparison.  So does that make what hit Japan not a thunder?  Must be since Weinland prophesied last month that the thunders were going to hit the United States first and foremost, but he didn’t address that point.  It’s going to happen in 2 weeks.  Or two months.  Or further down the road.  But it’s going to happen this year, he was clear on that point.  Maybe Weinland will save his current set of prophecies by extending 2011 by a few months.

Ron talked about the impact of the Japanese situation on the global economy, mentioning that Japan is now the third largest economy after China.  Ron didn’t mention which nation has the largest economy.  Which is, even after the devastation of the fourth thunder compounded by that of the first trumpet — the United States.  Back in 2008, Ron said that the dollar wouldn’t be worth anything soon after April of that year.

Seems that one of his prophecies has come true, the one made in Jerusalem in April of 2008 when he wasn’t really a witness even though he knew for certain at the time that he was.  That would be this prophecy:

According to Ron, his mockers and critic are eaten up, dead and dying inside.  I guess that I haven’t mocked Ron hard enough because I feel better inside physically and emotionally than I did several years ago.  If anyone is in that condition it is those who have loved ones sucked up into Ron’s cult.

Those who left PKG did so because of sin, such as adultery or the really, really big one of not paying tithes to Ron. Speaking of, I found a statement he made rather interesting: for flash-impaired browsers if you don’t see the play button above)

Particularly interesting after reading some of Herbert Armstrong’s coworker letters (8 MB PDF download).  For example, his November 16, 1961 letter:

The work is not yet out of this tight financial bind. The NEED, right now, is GREAT, and URGENT! Even though a good portion of those who have LOANED money to the work have not had to call for repayment, and many have been able to later donate it, still several others have needed what they had loaned, and this year we have had to repay many thousands of dollars on such loans. So that this does not have to stop or cut down the GOSPEL WORK, I have to still ask all who have larger sums you feel you cannot GIVE outright, at this time, to send in such sums as a loan. If you can GIVE a larger sum of one or several thousand dollars, it was never more seriously needed.

Even the widows’ mites, from the many who do not have such larger sums, count up BIG. Every one is NEEDED!

And another statement by Ron that … well, I’ll let you listen to and comment on it (warning — extra dose of irony supplements recommended first): for flash-impaired browsers if you don’t see the play button above)
