As US federal prisoner #15344-032 AKA False Prophet Ronald Weinland was not available to give this weekend’s sermon, Johnny Harrell filled in for him. Johnny announced that the dial-in phone hookup was being discontinued, those few oldsters still using it will have to buy CD players to listen. He also announced PKG policy for second tithe assistance, those getting assistance will not be allowed to transfer to a site more expensive than the one closest to them. Any private assistance must also be included in the equation when asking for assistance from the church. PKG would also no longer provide rides from the airport to the feast site for out-of-town members.
The title of the sermon was “What Profit?” with the wrong version of the second word. The world doesn’t have a clue as to what’s about to take place. But PKG members know or at least maybe eventually will as God reveals the new present truth week by week in sabbath sermons.
PKG members groan when other members lose the plan of God and start thinking for themselves. Which according to a comment left yesterday has happened as two more exPKG members are out there:
Parker (elder) and Heather W_ are no longer in agreement with the Church of God-PKG and have therefore disfellowsipped themselves from the Church of God-PKG. No one should contact them about this matter as it is between them and the Church of God-PKG.
Travis and Debra Luksich will now be the elders over Colorado. I have CC them on this email so if you need to contact them you have their email address. If you have any questions, please let me know.
I take “Beth” to be newly minted senior elder Beth Bucheit who also issued the fatwa disfellowhipping Ron’s mother and sister. Parker is the elder son of Evangelist Terry. Parker and Heather were married early in 2008 just prior to the detonation of “nukular” bombs in US port cities. Terry has another son and two daughters who may still be PKG members. As far as I know, these are the only remaining relatives of Ron and the three evangelists who are PKG members.
In Ron’s posting, he stated:
The Greek word translated to the English word “prove,” is a word that means “to test, examine, and try.” The use of the word, however, is in context with the process of making a judgment or decision as to whether something or someone is “approved or disapproved” in how it or they perform, work, or accomplish (do) a task.
The Merriam Webster’s dictionary provides the following definitions:
1 archaic : to learn or find out by experience.
2a: to test the truth, validity, or genuineness of <the exception proves the rule> <provea will at probate>
b: to test the worth or quality of; specifically: to compare against a standard —sometimes used with upor out
c:to check the correctness of (as an arithmetic result)
3a: to establish the existence, truth, or validity of (as by evidence or logic) <prove a theorem> <the charges were never proved in court>
b: to demonstrate as having a particular quality or worth <the vaccine has been proven effective after years of tests> <proved herself a great actress>
4: to show (oneself) to be worthy or capable <eager to prove myself in the new job>
Here are a few passages in “2008 — God’s Final Witness”:
Why should anyone believe what is written in either book? Again, the answer is twofold. The answer is not in anything that is stated or written because words by themselves do not prove credibility and truth. That which man has written about God does not prove it is true. Only God Himself can prove what is true by bringing to pass exactly what He has said. Only the next few years can prove whether or not these two books are true and of God. If nothing happens, then you can know positively that this is complete fiction. [pg 8]
It was not Moses’ responsibility to try to prove this in some way; it was God’s. God showed the Israelites and Egypt that Moses was His servant and His prophet by fulfilling what He said through him. [pg 12]
It is not my job to prove this to anyone—it is God’s! He will do so by His great power. [pg 17]
Yes, this book is the truth. God is about to prove that this book is telling the truth! He will do so with power unleashed beyond any that He has ever used to reveal to man that He is their Creator. [pg 51]
God will prove whom He sends. Just as prophetic events will unfold with increasing power and frequency, so will I increase in power and recognition by others because of the job God has placed before me. It is God’s purpose, and He will do it. Either I am an eloquent, rationally-sounding lunatic or I am sent from God. [pg 58]
Because we are so stubborn and filled with pride and will not accept this, God must allow us to prove this truth to ourselves. [pg 173]
Seems to me that last one contradicts Ron’s last posting. Look this over, and decide for yourself if “prove” as used in his book is the same archaic meaning for “prove” that he now prefers.
