These Men Assuming The Title DOCTOR Over Minister in The Church of God
The work of a true Minister of God is to ‘EDIFY’ the Body of Jesus Christ. How can we members of the one true Church Of God tell a true Minister of Jesus Christ from someone standing in His place?
‘Edify’ Has Latin Roots
‘Two of its early meanings, "to build" and "to establish," are now considered archaic; the only current sense of ‘edify’ is essentially the same as that figurative meaning in Late Latin, "to ‘instruct’ and improve in moral and religious knowledge."’
The Doctor standing before the Church of God does not claim to be a Medical Doctor ‘Someone who is educated to treat people medically’ but he does use the Title of Doctor before his name as ‘Someone who holds the highest university degree,’ so his usage of the term Doctor is in the intellectual sense of the word.
And as we couple the intellectual term of Doctor with today’s usage of the term to ‘Edify’ then this presents us with someone who instructs in the form of ‘a college-style lecturer’. But this is not how the Church of God should be ‘Edified’ in a SERMON, it is to be used ‘TO BUILT UP’ and to ‘ FURTHER ESTABLISH’ THE Members of Christs Body.
The Emotionless College-Style Lecture
The sermon opens with these words as the Doctor addresses Gods Church, "how open are we to accepting new information that differs from “our own opinions” the word opinions is asserted here, then the Doctor gets to the point asking “how do we receive correction-criticism” and much more. No real ‘Edification’ here. This Sermon was posted on the LCG website.
This way of speaking has always been proven to be a ‘red flag indicator’ within the Church of God. He then switches his context from criticizing Church Members forming of our ‘opinions’ to ‘opinions’ formed by those outside of the church, but continues to refer back to us at the same time.
This Doctor obviously has no concept of or regard for the depth of our spiritual maturity as Members of the Body of Christ! We are under the authority of Jesus Christ after being called directly by God the Father into His Church. It is therefore God’s spirit which leads us in the formation of what the Doctor wrongly refers to as ‘our opinions.’
But the lecture presented here raises the question, if given enough influence, where would he and his Doctor father choose to lead us?
Doctors Assuming The Leadership Position
These men using the title of DOCTOR in the Church of God today KNOW FOOL WELL THAT MR. ARMSTRONG ABOLISHED AND FORBAD THE USE OF THE TITLE OF D O C T O R IN THE MINISTRY OF GODS CHURCH!
I noticed the name Winnail and the Sermon title but did not recognize the face. You won’t find the Dr. title until after clicking to open the sermon. So now we have two (2) Doctors Winnail and this one sounds just as dry and boring as his Dad, sorry Doug, just a little dry British humor for you. From Ancestry.com, in America fifty percent of the Winnail Family were draftsmen (one who works on architectural drawings) rather than being noted as Doctors or inspiring College Lecturers.
But to repeat Mr. Armstrong’s ruling: These men assuming the title of DOCTOR in the Church of God today KNOW FOOL WELL THAT MR. ARMSTRONG ABOLISHED AND FORBAD THE USE OF THE TITLE OF DOCTOR IN THE MINISTRY OF GODS CHURCH!
MR. ARMSTRONG even had Dr. Herman Hoeh give a lecture speaking against the use of ‘DOCTOR’ IN THE MINISTRY, but it could be used in the Collage.
When Mr. Meredith founded the Global Church of God he resurrected the DOCTOR STATIS because he had always used it to hide an inferiority complex, I knew him that well. I recall on one Holy Day with combined services held in Garden Grove CA, we had THREE DOCTORS ON STAGE that day. We even had a DOCTOR SONG LEADER.
You Are To Be Mister Winnail
MR. ARMSTRONG had always ordered that out of respect for the position, everyone was to refer to the minister as MISTER and the membership agreed with it and that amount of genuine respect was always shown. If this is not found to be good enough for the Winnail Doctors then they may consider returning to the traditional family business as mentioned above.
Top evangelists such as Mr. Raymond McNair who was just as much of a DOCTOR as his brother in law Mr. Meredith, NEVER ONCE USED THIS TITLE IN GODS CHURCH ALTHOUGH HE AND THE REST OF THE MINISTRY HELD DOCTORATES JUST AS THE WINNAIL’S DO, BUT THESE TWO CHOOSE TO BE DISOBEDIENT IN THEIR VANITY!
THESE ARE THE WOULD BE INTELLECTUALS, IN THE SECOND AND THIRD CROP OF THOSE MAKING THEIR WAY INTO THE MINISTRY OF THE ALMOST GONE PHILADELPHIA ERA, NOW MORPHING INTO THE MINISTRY OF THE LAODECAN CHURCH OF GOD!
How Can You Afford That Expensive Suit Mr. Winnail?
HOW CAN YOU AFFORD TO DRESS THAT WELL MR. WINNAIL JUNIOR, WEARING A SUIT WHICH LOOKS TO ME WOULD COST AROUND $2,000, WHERE DO YOU GET MONEY LIKE THAT IN THE MINISTRY? AND THE STYLE LOOKS WAY TOO OLD FOR YOU, I HAVE A FEW LIKE THAT COSTING MUCH LESS. I recall Mr. Meredith telling me he was having three suits a year tailor-made for himself out of the television budget!
LET’S SEE NOW, AFTER SEEING THE MORE THAN $7,000,000 (SEVEN MILLION PLUS) BEING PAID TO THE MINISTRY I WOULD MAKE A GUESS THAT THE AVERAGE BASIC WAGE IS AROUND $75 to $90,000 FOR A LEADERSHIP POSITION TODAY, RODRICK MEREDITH WAS PAID ONE HUNDRED AND TEN THOUSAND THIRTY YEARS AGO IN OUR FORMER ASSOCIATION.
AND OF COURSE, THERE’S THE PENSION PLAN TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE ‘MATCHING FUNDS’ OPTION, SO YOU MAY REAP MORE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS EVERY YEAR FOR ALL INVOLVED IN THAT!
AND YOU COULD THERE IS THE ‘LIVING UNIVERSITY’ WITH ITS $2,000,000 + (TWO MILLION PLUS DOLLAR BUDGET!) BEING SPENT ON THAT!
HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS MORE ALLOCATED TO THIS THAN PAID TO TELEVISION NETWORKS TO GIVE W A R N I N G TO OUR N A T I O N S OF WHAT IS ABOUT TO STRIKE THEM!!!
More Than TWENTY MILLION Left To SPEND!
JUST AS LONG AS THE LEADERSHIP CAN KEEP THE SUSTAINING $22,000,000 + (TWENTY-MILLION + DOLLARS) PORING IN FROM INNOCENT PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH! WE ARE NOT TO BE BLIND INNOCENT SHEEP WHO CONTINUE TO PAY, PAY, PAY, GODS TITHE FOR WHAT???
WE ARE TO ACT RESPONSIBLY WITH GODS TITHE GOING TO THOSE USING IT, WHO ARE PREPARED TO PAY FOR A MAJOR WARNING WORK???
YES, THE TELEVISION PRESENTERS MAKEAN IMPRESSIVE LINE UP! B U T – WHAT THEY WILL NOT TELL YOU IS THAT ONLY A 10% W O R K IS BEING DONE BY THE LIVING CHURCH OF GOD TODAY! SEE THE OFFICIAL FINANCIAL FIGURES ARTICLE!!!
AND A 90% MINISTERIAL AND CHURCH SUSTAINING BILL IS BEING PAID BY YOU CONTINUING TO GIVE THESE PEOPLE GODS HOLY TITHE TO SQUANDER EVERY YEAR! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!!
Ninety Percent Used Up Within The Church!
N I N E T Y PERCENT (90%) OF THIS IS BEING USED UP WITHIN THE CHURCH WHICH HELPS ELEVATE THESE MEN, BUT NO REAL W A R N I N G WORK IS BEING DONE WITH O N L Y TEN PERCENT OF GODS TITHE SPENT ON TELEVISION AND PUBLISHING!!!
THIS IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT NOW BRETHREN, IN THIS HUGE GRAB FOR GODS TITHE BY THE CHURCH LEADERSHIP IN ALL OF THESE MAJOR SPLINTER GROUPS. SEE THE LCG FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE FIGURES FOR TOTAL PROOF OF THIS!
AS LONG AS THESE MEN ARE RECEIVING ALL OF THESE MILLIONS OF TITHE DOLLARS TO BE DIVIDED UP BETWEEN THE VARIOUS HEADQUARTERS DEPARTMENTS, PROVIDED BY Y O U, A POWERFUL WARNING WORK WILL NEVER BE DONE!!!
THEY WILL BE HAPPY TO TEACH THEIR ‘LIVING UNIVERSITY’ CLASSES, AND HAVE THEIR NICE DINNERS ON THE CHURCH CREDIT CARD WITH FELLOW WOULD BE INTELLECTUAL FRIENDS.
AND REFUSE TO ALLOCATE MORE THAN 5.5% OF THE $22,000,000 + RECEIVED FROM YOUR TITHING TO W A R N OUR NATIONS.
AND NEVER KNOWING THAT ANYTHING IN THEIR LIVES OR IN THE CHURCH HAS CHANGED, OR HAS GONE RADICALLY WRONG, UNTIL THE DAY COMES WHEN THE ATOMIC BOMBS FALL ON OUR CITIES!!!
Open A Tithe Account
PLEASE, OPEN A TITHE ACCOUNT AT YOUR BANK AND DEPOSIT GODS PRECIOUS TITHE THERE UNTIL THESE MEN BEGIN TO SPEND H A L F OF THE $22,000,000 (TWENTY-TWO MILLION DOLLARS) WHICH YOU HAVE BEEN FAITHFULLY PLACING IN THEIR CARE YEAR AFTER YEAR, IN ORDER TO HAVE THE AMERICAN AND BRITISH PEOPLE RECEIVE A LAST MINUTE WARNING VIA RADIO AND TELEVISION AND IN PRINT.
AND I GUARANTEE IT WON’T TAKE VERY LONG BEFORE THEY AGREE TO SPEND HALF OF THOSE $22,000,000 ON MEDIA COVERAGE?
They Set Themselves Above You’ll
THESE MEN SET THEMSELVES A B O V E THE MINISTRY AND ABOVE EVERYONE ELSE IN GODS CHURCH, AND JESUS CHRIST THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH OF GOD CONDEMNS THEM AND ANYONE ELSE USING THE TITLE OF D O C T O R IN GODS CHURCH.
THAT INCLUDES THE DENTIST, REGARDING HIMSELF AS BEING ANOTHER ELITIST AND HAVING HIMSELF REFERRED TO AS D O C T O R IN GODS CHURCH, KNOWN AS DR. FALL! HOW RIDICULOUS, AS THESE MERE MEN, INDULGE THEIR OWN CARNAL VANITY IN THIS!!!
DO I MAKE MYSELF C L E A R DOCTORS WINNAIL, FALL, AND ANYONE ELSE BREAKING JESUS CHRISTS RULING THROUGH – MISTER – ARMSTRONG REGARDING THE ABSOLUTE ABOLITION AND BAN ON THE VAIN USE OF THE TITLE OF – DOCTOR – IN THE PHILADELPHIA ERA OF THE CHURCH OF GOD?
IF SO THEN GET RID OF THIS VANITY Mr. WINNAIL, AND PLEASE STOP ABUSING THOSE WHO SEE THROUGH YOUR ATTEMPTED AUTHORITY GUILT TRIPS! THEY BEND THE KNEE ONLY TO GOD AND HAVE NO TROUBLE SHOWING PROPER RESPECT TO THOSE THEY CAN RESPECT. THIS AUTTA HELP SIMMER YE DOWN SON.
LIVING UNIVERSITY SHOULD NOW BE CLOSED AND THE TWO MILLION DOLLARS BEING SPENT ON THIS EVERY YEAR SHOULD BE PAID OUT TO HELP FINANCE A FULL SCALE WARNING TO OUR NATIONS IN THESE VERY LAST DAYS OF THIS AGE! THIS WOULD BE PLEASING TO JESUS CHRIST AND TO GOD THE FATHER!
