HOW TO SAVE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO FINISH THE WORK!
If the ‘One True Church Of God’ is to be reunited and A REAL WARNING is to be given with overwhelming world-shattering MEDIA POWER the following WILL BE NECESSARY in order to obey Jesus Christ’s command to "GO PROPHESY AGAIN."
IT WILL BE NECESSARY TO CUT THE FOLLOWING EXPENSES….
All church headquarters will need to be sold raising millions and saving additional millions on running expenses every year for the remaining years of this church era!
Those men with Church Management responsibilities can work out of their homes.
The many present headquarters employees will find regular jobs.
The ministerial annual Conference assemblies will need to be ended, Conference calls can be used for this purpose as many businesses do today, saving millions.
These Conferences are a huge expense costing upwards on $100,000 for each large church group every year. These extreme costs were mentioned by the LCG leader in one of his late March of 2020 ‘Daily Report’ videos on the LCG.org Website as the Annual Ministerial Conference had to be canceled because of the Covid-19 outbreak.
Quoting Mr. Weston "THE THOUSANDS AND THE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS COST OF THESE (LIVING CHURCH OF GOD) MINISTERIAL CONFERENCES" and on the "Council of Elders Meetings held for one week preceding" (the week to ten days long hotel stay for the Ministers and their wives)
PLEASE ASK TO HAVE THIS RE-POSTED TO THE LCG WEBSITE SO YOU CAN HEAR THESE FIGURES FROM HIM. (The report on the Conference including the tens of thousands of dollars of costs went missing)
These growing expenses apply to the cost of ALL large splinter groups Ministerial Conferences every year over the last thirty-five years, and all of these HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS are SPENT ALL OVER AGAIN months later for Ministerial Feast expenses!
Ministerial Salaries & Expenses….
As ministerial costs take away the majority of tithe money, spending caps on salaries will need to be established.
Many Americans work two 30 hour jobs each week in order to provide for their families, with no additional benefits of any kind.
Each paid minister and ministerial trainee can find one of these jobs and have those 30 hour earnings deducted from their salary as the Apostle Paul did on occasions. This will save millions for the GREATER WORK to be done!
Wives of the ministry will no longer be paid but will find jobs if they wish to work.
Those of the ministry past retiring age such as Richard Ames, including those who had their retirement very well provided for, with a MILLION DOLLARS EACH OF GOD’S TITHE directed to them for their retirement by Mr. Armstrong as confirmed to me by Raymond McNair, SHOULD REFUSE TO TAKE ANY MORE OF GOD’S TITHE in a paycheck and from the LCG retirement pension fund.
Fleet car rentals will need to be canceled saving additional millions.
The ministry will be required to use their own vehicles with a gas allowance, percentage of insurance, car repairs, and depreciation paid on necessary member visits.
There is no need for Headquarters Staff to line the parking lots with these new fleet vehicles at the expense of GOD’S TITHE including the MERCEDES belonging to one of the LCG Headquarters ministry parked out front when I visited there a year ago.
ALL credit cards for all ranks of the ministry and all other employees will be canceled. Eating out on these cards has been badly abused, Church members pay for their own meals out and so should you.
Housing assistance can no longer be paid to ministers when less expensive housing can be found in neighboring communities.
ALL Ministry and any other staff will be required to pay their own Feast expenses every year as church members do saving ADDITIONAL MILLIONS on flights, hotel expenses, car rentals, and more credit card spending as is the case during the Ministerial Conference, they will be scheduled to speak at the closest Feast site.
Scheduling flights to ‘visit the churches’ has been abused by some headquarters staff and will no longer be permitted except when there is a problem in a particular church area.
Local Sabbath meeting facilities can be paid for by a local church fund with member tax-deductible contributions.
Assistance to needy members can also be paid out of this fund if funds are available, no other funds will be available. It is much better for these people to find work.
The Widows Tithe will be used to support only the person for whom these funds are intended including younger children, not other adult dependants.
The various other costs can be reviewed with decisions to be made in the future.
A Special Evacuation Savings Fun….
A personal evacuation fund needs to be established by every church family to be used in order to escape a foreseeable national disaster.
The above covers much of the PRESENT DAY ABUSE and WASTE of MULTIPLE MILLIONS and HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of GOD’S TITHE MONEY OVER DECADES FAITHFULLY PAID by Church of God MEMBERS with ONLY 10% (TEN CENTS out of every dollar) being spent TO DO A FEEBLE WORK!!!
A TOTALLY OUTRAGEOUS STATE OF AFFAIRS IN GOD’S CHURCH TODAY!!!
A Word on These Necessary Changes To Ministerial Payments….
WITH MUCH OVERSPENDING TO KEEP THE MINISTRY AND HEADQUARTERS STAFF, THEIR FAMILIES WILL STILL BE MUCH BETTER OFF THAN THE AVERAGE CHURCH FAMILY, EVEN AFTER THESE CUT!
One of these reasons is because of the PARSONAGE DEDUCTIONS you make from your taxes every year on your monthly home supply purchases for your entire household, from heating-cooling costs all the way through your shopping list right down to paper products!
THESE ARE THE FINAL YEARS OF THE WORK!!! WILL Y O U MEN IN THE MINISTRY NOT MAKE A SACRIFICE N O W ???
It is ONLY by the MINISTRY sacrificing some of the ‘good lifestyle now’ that you will hear Jesus Christ say "well done good and faithful servant!"
There are several small splinter groups with very little Tithe income and some ministers over these who do not take a salary. These men are to be commended on their RIGHT SPIRIT in TRULY SERVING THE CHURCH OF GOD without a paycheck!
They will have no problem with the constructive criticism in this well-intended article. And this is the s p i r i t with which this should be received.
IN ORDER TO PURCHASE ‘MILLIONS OF DOLLARS WORTH’ OF RADIO, TV, AND INTERNET THE TITHE MONEY PRESENTLY BEING WASTED MUST BE MADE AVAILABLE FOR THE "GO PROPHESY AGAIN" WORLDWIDE CAMPAIGN. As Christ Demands of Us in Rev. Ch.11!
And so before the end of this so-called civilized society arrives, we need to STOP THIS ECCUMULATED WASTING OF ALL OF THESE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of GOD’S TITHE MONEY LISTED ABOVE!
THE LEADERSHIP AND MINISTRY OF THESE LARGE SPLINTER GROUPS WILL NOT STOP WASTING ALL OF THESE MILLIONS YOU ARE FAITHFULLY PAYING IN UNTILL YOU REFUSE TO GIVE THESE MEN ANYMORE.
Therefore go to your bank and open a separate account and begin depositing your monthly Tithe Checks into that account until these splinter group leaders see to it that all of this is quickly done:
#1 No longer wasting GODS TITHE MONEY on the above mentioned items.
#2 That the splinter groups combine their allocated MEDIA funds in order to cut costs and to be able to negotiate better terms in purchasing additional air time on HUNDREDS of RADIO and TELEVISION STATIONS, so that A REAL WARNING CAN BE GIVEN TO OUR NATIONS, AS TIME IS FAST RUNNING OUT!!!
#3 That these splinter group leaders UNITE CHRISTS BODY INTO THE ONE AND ONLY TRUE BODY OF JESUS CHRIST, WHICH IS THE ONE TRUE CHURCH OF GOD!
THIS M U S T BE DONE IN ORDER THAT WE MAY PLEASE GOD THE FATHER, THAT HE WILL THEN DO AS HE HAS PROMISED TO DO:
AND THAT IS TO CALL THOUSANDS OF NEW PEOPLE INTO THE CHURCH NEARING THE CLOSE OF THE PHILADELPHIA ERA – "AT THE END OF THE DAY" – TO HELP FINISH THE WORK!!!
PLEASE LET’S GET THIS STARTED NOW!!!
