FROM THE LIVING CHURCH OF GOD ANNUAL FINANCIAL REPORT
The Living Church of God received Approx. $22,186,348 (TWENTY-TWO MILLION, One Hundred and Eighty-Six Thousand, Three Hundred, and Forty-Eight Dollars in Tithes, Offerings, and Contributions.
YET ONLY – Approx. $1,220,249 (ONE MILLION, Two Hundred and Twenty-Two Thousand, Two Hundred and Forty Nine Dollars- WENT TO PURCHASE TELEVISION MEDIA TIME FOR THE YEAR!
THIS IS JUST 5.5% ONE-TWENTIETH BEING ALLOCATED TO SHOW THE ‘TOMORROWS WORLD PROGRAM’ ON TELEVISION AND ONLY 4.45% WAS SPENT ON ALL PUBLISHING INCLUDING THE MAGAZINE!
I WAS SHOCKED TO SEE THESE FIGURES! ONLY THE SMALLEST PERCENTAGES POSSIBLE WERE SPENT TO REACH THE AMERICAN AND BRITISH PEOPLES BY TELEVISION AND BY THE MAGAZINE!!!
WHAT A TOTAL TRAGEDY FOR THE CHURCH I TRUSTED TO SPEND THE MOST ON GIVING A STRONG WARNING TO THE AMERICAN AND BRITISH PEOPLE!!!
AND I AM SORRY TO SAY, THAT THIS AMOUNT IS BEING SPENT IN ORDER TO CONVINCE YOU, MEMBERS, TO CONTINUE TITHING THE MORE THAN TWENTY – TWO MILLION DOLLARS YEAR AFTER YEAR!!!
The Remaining Approx. $20,923,328…
THE REMAINING MAJOR PORTION EQUALLING $20,923,328 (TWENTY MILLION, nine hundred and twenty-three thousand, three hundred and twenty-eight dollars) WAS THEN USED UP ON LEADERSHIP, MINISTERIAL, AND STAFF SALARIES, ON THE PENSION PLAN, AND ON HEADQUARTERS EXPENCES, AND ON THE COST OF MINISTERIAL ACTIVITIES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR!
IN ADDITION MILLIONS MORE ARE BEING SPENT ON LIVING UNIVERSITY, ON THE OVER STAFFED MEDIA DEPARTMENT, ON THE OVER STAFFED EDITORIAL DEPARTMENT, WHILE ONLY LESS THAN 10% OF THE TOTAL INCOME IS ACTUALLY BEING SENT TO PAY (5.5% to ‘Television Networks & Publishing’ only 4.45%) TO REACH OUR NATIONS WITH ANY KIND OF WARNING OF WHAT IS TO COME!!!
ALL OF THESE MILLIONS GONE, EXCEPT FOR FOUR MILLION DOLLARS NOT PAID OUT, VIRTUALLY I M P O S S I B L E FOR ME TO BELIEVE. I ACTUALLY DID TRUST THE LIVING CHURCH OF GOD MORE THAN ALL OTHER SPLINTER GROUPS TO USE THEIR INCOME TO DO A REAL WORK AND NOT JUST TO PRESENT A TOKEN GESTURE OF A WORK BEING DONE!!!
I SEEM TO REMEMBER MR. MEREDITH CUTTING BACK ON EVERYTHING ELSE TO ALLOW AT LEAST 30% TO GO TO PURCHASING TELEVISION TIME AND NOW T.V. PURCHASING HAS BEEN CUT DOWN TO 5.5% OF TOTAL TITHES, OFFERINGS AND CONTRIBUTIONS RECEIVED!!!
To Find The Figures
WHAT HAS THE REMAING Approx. $20,923,328 BEEN SPENT ON BRETHREN? WHERE DID THE REST OF THE MONEY GO? SEE THESE FIGURES BEFORE THEY ARE TAKEN DOWN!
GO TO LCG.ORG, CLICK ON ‘A B O U T’ ON THE TOP BAR BUT DO NOT CLICK ON ANYTHING IN THE ARROWED BOX WHICH APPEARS, IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE ACTUAL FIGURES.
SCROLL ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE ‘ABOUT’ PAGE, THERE YOU WILL FIND ‘Living Church Of God 2015 to 2018 Consolidated Financial’s. Click on the 2018 Report and scroll down through nineteen pages to Page 20 (page twenty) and see the last two columns of Totals to the right.
THEN FOR EXAMPLE: Look For HAULING & EQUIPMENT RENTALS (in accountants terminology) This equals Approx. $1,250,296!!! (ONE MILLION, Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand, Two Hundred, and Ninety-Six Dollars!) THIS IS THE HUGE AMOUNT PAID OUT MAINLY FOR FLEET CAR RENTALS FOR THE LEADERSHIP, MINISTRY, AND STAFF (ONE MILLION, Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand, Two Hundred, and Ninety-Six Dollars!!!)
ONLY COMPARING CAR AND ANY TRUCK RENTALS (including perhaps shipping to the Post Office) ANOTHER ONE-TWENTIETH WITH A DIFFERENCE OF APPROX. $13,000 (thirteen thousand dollars) SIMILAR TO TELEVISION TIME PURCHASED FOR THE 2018 YEAR GONE ON CAR RENTALS! I WAS SHOCKED AND SO SHOULD YOU MEMBERS BE!!!
Travel, Meals And Personal Development
THE AMOUNT IS Approx. $699,848 (SIX HUNDRED AND NINETY THOUSAND, Eight Hundred and Forty-Eight Dollars?) ROUGHLY H A L F OF WHAT WAS SPENT TO PURCHASE TELEVISION TIME FOR THE YEAR!
THIS Approx. $699,848 INCLUDES THE COST OF FLYING THE ENTIRE MINISTRY INTO CHARLOTTE FOR THE MINISTERIAL CONFERENCE, (ANOTHER FREE RENTAL CAR PROVIDED) HIGH-QUALITY HOTEL COSTS INCLUDING ALL MEALS, BUFFETS AND THE BANQUET. AND THEN TO REPEAT ALL OF THESE LEADERSHIP AND MINISTERIAL COSTS AT FEAST TIME AND LATER AGAIN ON PAID VACATIONS.
BUT IT ALSO INCLUDES THE LEADERSHIP AND MINISTRY BUYING BREAKFAST, LUNCH, AND DINNER, AND EATING OUT WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS AFTER CHURCH ON THE SABBATH, AND ON HOLY DAYS, AND DURING THE FEAST, ALL ON THE CHURCH CREDIT CARD ADDING UP TO MANY THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR!
MORE THAN MR. WESTON REFERRED TO AS "TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS BEING SPENT ON THE MINISTERIAL CONFERENCES" IN LATE MARCH OF 2020 WHEN HE ANNOUNCED THE CANCELATION OF THE CONFERENCE DUE TO THE Covid-19 OUTBREAK. Ask him to re-post the video that appeared on the church website for you to hear these figures from him.
CHURCH OF GOD MEMBERS AND THEIR FAMILIES EATING OUT ON THE SABBATH, AND ON HOLY DAYS, AND AT THE FEAST, PAY FOR THEIR OWN MEALS AND SO SHOULD THE LEADERSHIP AND THE MINISTRY. AND OF COURSE THIS IS JUST ONE MORE WAY TO GIVE MORE TITHE MONEY TO THE LEADERSHIP AND MINISTERY, IN ORDER TO PAY THE HIGH COST OF THE MINISTERIAL EXECUTIVE LIFESTYLE.
THE COST OF MEALS MUST BE MENTIONED IN THIS SEPARATE CATEGORY IN ORDER TO MAKE THEM L E G A L WITH THE I.R.S.
Illegal With GOD
BUT MUCH OF THIS SPENDING IS ILLEGAL IN G O D THE FATHERS EYES AND IN THE EYES OF JESUS CHRIST THE LIVING HEAD OF THE CHURCH OF GOD TODAY!!!
AND ALL OF YOU LITTLE MEN IN THESE TEMPORARY LEADERSHIP AND MINISTRIAL POSITIONS IN ALL OF YOUR SPLINTER GROUPS ARE IN GODS EYES ILLEGALLY CONSUMING HIS HOLY TITHE AND YOU ARE N O T USING MORE THAN – TEN PERCENT – OF IT TO REACH THE AMERICAN AND BRITISH PEOPLE! YOU ARE RIGHT NOW BEING JUDGMENT ON THESE OVERWHELMING A B U S E S, AND YOU ARE BEING FOUND GUILTY OF STEALING FROM GOD!!!
This Can Be Stopped
ALL OF THIS ABUSE IN THE LIVING CHURCH OF GOD CAN BE STOPED BY Y O U MEMBERS SHOWING ENOUGH MATURE CHARACTER BY REFUSING TO PAY ANY MORE OF GODS TITHE TO THESE MEN ‘UNTIL AT LEAST H A L F OF THESE TWENTY TWO MILLION DOLLARS TITHES, AND OFFERINGS, AND CONTRIBUTIONS, ARE SPENT TO BUY RADIO AND TELEVISION TIME TO WARN OUR NATION S!!!!!!’
Please see on this page: ‘HOW TO SAVE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO FINISH THE WORK!’
Now See: SALARIES, WAGES, AND BENEFITS
THIS AMOUNT IS Approx. $7,325,718 SEVEN MILLION, THREE HUNDRED AND TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND, SEVEN HUNDRED AND EIGHTEEN DOLLARS!
ADD THE $1,250,296 MAINLY FOR FLEET CARS, THE $699,848 FOR FLIGHTS, MEALS, AND PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT. THIS ALONE ADDS ANOTHER $1,944,144 TO THE $7,325,718 IN SALARIES, TOTALING $9,269,862 TO BENEFIT THE MINISTRY, THEN ADD IN 9.4% FOR ‘Living University’ $2,085,514, THEN ADD 7.16% FOR SUPPORT SERVICES ANOTHER $1.588,542? (all approx. figures) AND ON IT GOES, WERE NOT FINISHED COUNTING YET!!!
AND AS MENTIONED, THE PAID MINISTERIAL CONFERENCE COSTS AND, THEIR PAID FEAST EXPENSES, THEN THERE ARE ‘MATCHING FUNDS FOR THE PENSION PLAN’ FOR THE LEADERSHIP, MINISTRY, AND STAFF, AND THEN THE ‘HEADQUARTERS RUNNING COSTS.’ THIS LEAVES VIRTUALLY N O T H I N G TO BE USED TO DO A REAL WARNING WORK!!!
The Matching Funds Pension Plan
AND NOW READ OF THE ‘MATCHING FUNDS FROM YOUR TITHE DOLLARS FOR THE RETIREMENT PLAN’ AND AMOUNTS GIVEN THERE, ONE AMOUNT MENTIONED INVOLVES Approx. $600,000, NOT PAID TO ONE PERSON.
And notice how the retirement fund ‘Is Discretionary’ only paid to those selected and can even be paid as far back as the previous association, would that be The Global Church of God?
So this must mean that Mr. Ames is now working on his second MILLION DOLLAR CHURCH OF GOD RETIREMENT FUND? MR. ARMSTRONG TOOK CARE OF THESE OLDER MEN ALREADY.
I personally like Mr. Ames, everybody does, but he has been a bit of a miser over the years. On the first occasion he attended an evening with the Global Church Headquarters Staff and Church Members coming to our place to enjoy an evening together, we asked each to bring something to eat and drink. And this is what he did rather than bring something to share with others, arriving at our front door with the tiniest amount of food and drink which he placed neatly under his seat at the table….. "Mr. Ames the taking all that you can get MUST END NOW!"
These Are The Accountants Actual Figures
THESE ARE THE ACTUAL FIGURES OF THE M I L L I O N S COMING IN AND WHO IS RECEIVING THESE M I L L I O N S IN SALARIES AND ALL CHURCH EXPENSES WHICH TELLS THE TRUE STORY OF WHERE THE MONEY IS GOING WITHIN THE LIVING CHURCH OF GOD. N O T JUST SHOWN ON – A – P I E – C H A R T – WHICH IS ALL MOST WILL GLANCE AT!
AND AS YOU LCG MEMBERS CAN SEE MOST ALL OF THIS TWENTY TWO MILLION DOLLARS IS BEING SPENT WITHIN THE HEADQUARTERS AND MINISTRY CHURCH ORGANISATION AND NOT BEING PAID OUT TO RADIO AND TELEVISION STATIONS TO GET A W A R N I N G OUT!!!
AND ALL OF THIS WASTING AWAY OF GODS PRECIOUS TITHE HAS BEEN GOING ON, AND WILL GO ON, YEAR AFTER YEAR, AFTER YEAR, AFTER YEAR, AFTER YEAR, UNTIL YOU MEMBERS OPEN A TITHE ACCOUNT AT YOUR BANK AND DEPOSIT YOUR TITHE CHECKS THERE UNTIL ALL OF THIS S T E A L I N G FROM G O D ENDS, OTHERWISE THIS SITUATION WILL NEVER CHANGE!!!
YOU ARE ASLEEP, WHERE THESE MEN ARE HOLDING YOU, CONVINCED THAT A REAL WORK IS ACTUALLY BEING DONE!!! YOU WILL WAKE UP IN THE TRIBULATION WITH – NO WORK – HAVING BEEN DONE!!!!!!
WE HAVE A L L BEEN WAY TOO INNOCENT AND W A Y TOO T R U S T I N G BRETHREN, ITS PAST TIME TO WAKE UP TO WHAT THE MEN WE HAVE ALL RELIAD ON HAVE BEEN DOING!!!
Please see on this page: ‘HOW TO SAVE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO FINISH THE WORK!’
All Wasted TIME AND MONEY
MR. WESTON COME ON NOW ENOUGH – IS – E N O U G H – PLEASE!!!
LETS END A L L OF T H I S BEFORE IT ENDS IN TRAGEDY FOR EVERY MINISTER WHO SUPPORTS ALL OF THIS W A S T I N G AWAY OF A L M O S T ALL THAT YOU ARE GIVEN IN TITHES AND OFFERINGS AND OTHER CONTRIBUTIONS.
IN THE CASE OF THE LIVING CHURCH OF GOD, TO THE TUNE OF OVER $22,000,000 (TWENTY-TWO MILLION DOLLARS) IN ONE YEAR ALONE and only ONE TWENTIETH – 1/20th. – OF THIS SPENT TO BUY TELEVISION TIME. SO T R A G I C!!!
PLEASE CUT OUT A L L OF THESE WASTED MILLIONS EVERY YEAE AND ATTEMPT TO APPROACH THE OTHER CHURCH LEADERS SO THAT MORE THAN A FEEBLE WARNING CAN BE GIVEN TO MORE THAN JUST THE SMALL MINORITY OF THE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF OUR POPULATION.
Now find the LCG PIE CHART
To find this go to LCG.org click on ‘ABOUT’ and then click on ‘Press Kit’ in the arrowed box which pops up.
THE PIE THERE SHOWS 20.8% or $4.615 Million went to the MEDIA DEPARTMENT, BUT WE ARE TOLD THAT ONLY $1,263,020 or 5.5% of the entire $22,186,348 of TOTAL INCOME WAS PAID TO TELEVISION NETWORHS! AND SO FROM THIS WE FIND – ‘OVER THREE AND A QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS’ (all approx. figures) – HAS BEEN PAID TO MANAGEMENT AND STAFF OF THE TELEVISION DEPARTMENT WHO WORKED ON PRODUCING THESE TELECASTS!!! (and any equipment cost paid in the year)
AN ENTIRE DEPARTMENT HAS BEEN LAZING AROUND WASTING THEIR DAYS WHEN ONE MAN ON ONE CAMERA AND ON A MAC WITH A FINAL CUT EDITING PROGRAM COULD HAVE DONE A L L OF THIS WORK! I do my own at no cost to anyone!
Carving Up The Pie!
AND ON THE PIE CHART 54.9% $11,980,627 was paid to ‘Feeding the Flock’ and another 40.9% $9,074,216 was paid to ‘Support of Local Congrations’ 37.94% $8,253,321 was paid to ‘Preaching the Gosple’ and seperately 9.4% $2,085,516 was paid to ‘Living University’ (This smaller ‘Living University’ figure almost equalling the entire amount paid for Television & Publishing!!!) And then ‘Support Services’ 7.16% which equals $1,589,000 not sure what this ONE AND A HALF MILLION DOLLARS WENT ON? (all Approx. figures)
YET ONLY – 5.5% Approx. $1,220,348. (ONE MILLION, Two Hundred and Twenty Thousand, Three Hundred and Forty-Nine Dollar – OF THE MORE THAN $22,000,000 WENT TO PURCHASE TELEVISION MEDIA TIME FOR THE YEAR!
AND ONLY 4.45% Approx. $987,300 (NINE HUNDRED and Eighty-Seven Thousand, Three Hundred) OF THE MORE THAN $22,000,000 WENT TO PAY FOR ALL PUBLISHING INCLUDING THE MAGAZINE!
PLLEEAASSEEE MR. WESTON, PLEASE.
Place detail any errors on the USBF Contact Page for correction.
Millions Wasted In Media Production
MILLIONS OF GODS TITHE MONEY WAS SPENT TO BUILD ALL OF THESE TELEVISION STUDIOS WHEN YOU COMBINE THE COSTS OF ALL OF THE LARGER CHURCH SPLINTERS, IN LIVING, IN UNITED, IN THE FLURY CHURCH, AND AT PACKS NEW STATE OF THE ART STUDIO.
AND MILLIONS MORE ARE BEING SPENT EVERY YEAR TO PAY ALL OF THESE DEPARTMENT MANAGERS AND PRODUCTION STAFF WHEN ALL OF THIS COULD BE CONDENSED INTO JUST ONE STUDIO!!!
THE INTERNET COSTS ONLY A SMALL PERCENTAGE IN COMPARISON TO TELEVISION THE LARGEST MEDIA COST, BUT WE SHOULD BE USING HUNDREDS OF RADIO STATIONS AS WELL AS IT IS RADIO WHICH IS THE MOST LISTENED TO TODAY!
AND ONLY 5.5% ONE-TWENTIETH OF THE APPROX. $22,000,000 TOTAL LCG CHURCH INCOME THAT YOU ARE PAYING TO HAVE ONLY A FRACTION OF THE AMERICAN AND BRITISH NATIONS RECEIVE A W A R N I N G!
ONLY 5.5% OF $22,000,000 + IS BEING ALLOCATED BY MR. WESTON TO GET THAT WARNING WORK TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC, WHY IS THIS NOT BEING DONE???
MILLIONS ARE BEEN THROWN AWAY EVERY YEAR IN WAGES ON PRODUCTION COSTS, AROUND THREE TO FOUR TIMES (BETWEEN THREE TO FOUR MILLION DOLLARS) MORE THAN PAID TO AIR ‘THE TOMORROWS WORLD PROGRAM’!!! WHAT AN OVERWHELMING TRAGEDY!!!
HOW DID THE CHURCH OF GOD SQUANDERING OF GODS TITHE EVER COME TO THIS AND HOW DID THE CHURCH OF GOD LEADERSHIP EVER GET INTO THIS CONDITION???
Keeping Them Asleep
WILL A L L OF YOU P L E A S E, WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP TO REALITY, YOU AT CHURCH HEADQUARTERS ARE DIRECTING YOUR MEMBERSHIP TO REMAIN FULLY ASLEEP, BY YOU AND YOU MINISTERS DECEIVING ALL OF THEM INTO BELIEVING THAT A SIGNIFICANT WORK IS BEING DONE AND IT IS N O T!!!
EACH CHURCH LEADERSHIP SERIOUSLY NEEDS TO R E P E N T AND TO UNITE GODS CHURCH AND TO DO A R E A L WARNING WORK TO OUR NATIONS TO FINISH OFF THE WORK OF THE PHILADELPHIA ERA, SO THAT ALL OF YOU DO NOT BECOME THE LAODECAN ERA OF GODS CHURCH!!! BECAUSE THAT I S WHAT YOU ARE BECOMING NOW!!!!!!! WAKE UP!!!!!!
Using This Money Wisely In The Future Mr. Weston
WHY NOT NOW USE THE MONEY YOU HAVE THERE SOME E I G H T MILLION IN 2018 TO LAUNCH THE "GO PROPHESY AGAIN" L A S T CAMPAIGN OF THE PHILADELPHIA ERA OF GODS CHURCH TO W A R N AMERICA AND BRITAIN OF WHAT IS COMING UPON THEM???
PUT THAT AMOUNT TO WHAT A L L OF THE OTHER SPLINTER GROUPS WILL PROVIDE TO PURCHASE RADIO AND TELEVISION TIME FOR A HUGE "GO PROPHECY AGAIN" M E D I A EARTH SHATTERING C A M P A I G N!!!
WHY N O T BEGIN THIS NOW MR. WESTON AND INVITE ALL OTHER SPLINTER GROUPS OF GODS CHURCH TO JOIN IN THE LAST CAMPAIGN OF THE PHILADELPHIA ERA!
GIVE YOUR ANSWER TO THIS PROPOSAL TO THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD?
I Have Been Telling You The Truth Of ALL Of This
I’m sorry to have to point this out, but what I have been telling you Church Members is proven in these Financial Statements. Please find these and check them out in the 2018 Annual Financial Report on the LCG.org Website, bottom of the ‘ABOUT’ page. Scroll all the way to the bottom (without clicking in the pop-up arrowed box) then click on the 2018 Report and scroll down through nineteen pages of the report to Page 20 (page twenty) and see the last two columns of Totals to the right if not taken down.
Please Note Mr. Weston: If any error is found in the actual figures presented here do not hesitate to inform me via the USBF Contact Page so that a correction may be made. Please be brief as I do not have time to spend reading excuses.
Please let me assure you and the rest of the LCG leadership that I intend to be equally as critical of abuses by the other church splinters until the Church of God is united and at least FIFTY PERCENT of the combined net income of GODS TITHE MONEY is spent to warn our nations! Thank You. Brian
