Haverty has made it official, here’s a lightly redacted copy of his resignation email:
The purpose of this email is to inform you that I am no longer associated with cog-pkg. Please remove my name from the membership and ministry.
My reason for leaving is all contained in Deuteronomy 18:20-22. I no longer accept or support the Weinland’s claims of being God’s appointed prophets and/or witnesses.
The only administrative item to do is for you to make decisions about the scheduled meeting dates (3/22, 4/13, 4/15). Please contact Diane and let me know if I need to cancel any of the above dates.
Please be advised that you or Doris are the only ones I will accept a phone call from for the purpose of transferring responsibilities only.
Jeffery N____ [now ex-elder from Florida]
I believe those in the know will understand who this is from first names and location alone.
For those PKG members who do not read the Bible, leaving it to Ron to read it and explain it to them, here’s what it says in Deuteronomy 18:20-22:
20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the Lord hath not spoken?
22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
Notice what the verse says. If you prophesy in the name of the Lord and it doesn’t happen, THEN you have spoken presumptuously. Ron clearly has done this, and his batting average for prophecy is .000. Ron twists this verse around, claiming that he didn’t speak presumptuously and therefore is not a false prophet. Flavor Aid is powerful stuff!!!
