Laodicean Spelling Bee

On her fourth attempt, Kavya Shivashankar won the National Spelling Bee. The winning word was “Laodicean,” defined as "an indifference to religion or politics". With a CoG background, I've heard the word but must admit that I've had trouble with the correct spelling. And I'd never heard it applied to politics.

Congratulations Kavya. It's too bad that you don't realize that you are, ironically, in the Laodicean era and have a 90% probability of dying over the next 3 years. That is unless you recognize that Ronald Weinland is God('s Witness) and repent. Set aside your dream of becoming a neurosurgeon. Because even if you do survive "into the new age", that profession will not be required in God's/Ron's kingdom.

For some odd reason, ;-), I had never thought of it that way, that all our jobs, hopes, dreams, desires, homes, allegiances, loyalties, pride in works well done, and let us not forget love our wonderful nation are almost gone... well according to doomsday Ron anyway. All the wonderful aspects of our great nation Rons God is going to destroy... well at least in Rons head anyway. Rons God is a rather destructive entity is s/he not?
So with little future left I had best go home tonight and tell the little ones that they don't have to even try in school, what would be the point of good grades now? Guess loyalty to the job should also end as well... and don't even get me started on my pets, they don't have a chance... no point in painting the house...

Ron is rather depressing.

Unfortunately, that describes a typical Church of God lifestyle down to the ground, Whisper. And I should know, because that's exactly how I grew up.

So there was no point in sending Jeremy to high school or college/university?

If Ron sent his kids to post secondary education, he is a hypocrite.

ILFPRW would argue that Jeremy needed to learn German so that he could interpret with the beast power. Don't know what the graphic design degree is for though.

Of course, this reveals one good way to spot a member of the Laodicean Church. He can't even spell Laodicean.

But ooo, how many COG preachers do you think will run with that word this weekend? You've merely started the wave.

"If Ron sent his kids to post secondary education, he is a hypocrite."

So were most of the ministers and lay-ministers, in the church, when I was in: The only kids who went to AC (which was caught in the mess of the post-HWA era, revamped briefly as "AU" and then sold off for Junior to pocket the proceeds), were the children of lay-members. All the children of ministers and lay-ministers that I have information on now, attended "worldly" colleges and universities.

All the children of ministers and lay-ministers that I have information on now, attended "worldly" colleges and universities.I think Gerald Flurry's son and daughter went to A.U./Big Sandy, especially while he wrote Malachi's Message.A daughter of the WCG Pastor who baptized me, Arnold Clauson (still in GCI/Dallas), also went to A.C. She was on stage with a touring chorale, which visited my city years later.

Purple Hymnal said...

Richard, I guess I should have been more clear: All of the former children of ministers and lay-ministers from my congregation that I remember.

Does that make things more clear, or will you persist in your passive-aggressive "correction" of me, to try and bolster your barely-hidden CoG apologetics?? (Yes, I have been rereading the comments you left on WW over the weekend, what makes you ask?)

So, Richard, your thinly-veiled "look at the liar, I will prove the LIAR wrong" tactics, gain no ground here.

Richard said...

If "WW" means Weinland Watch, I haven't left any comments there in months. From what I could tell, the comments were disabled.

If stating my recollections of things constitutes calling someone a liar, I apologize for offending. But if stating those things provokes someone else to quasi-accusations, my sympathies are with you. I should realize some people remain quite sensitive over how WCG et al treated them.
