From The Living Church of God Financial Report With 2022 Updates
IN THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS OF MR. ARMSTRONG’S LIFE HE WONDERED ALOUD IF HALF OF THOSE ATTENDING THE WORLDWIDE CHURCH OF GOD WERE TRULY CONVERTED.
DID THIS COME FROM HIS OWN PERCEPTION OR DID IT COME FROM SCRIPTURE?
WAS HE SEARCHING TO FIND WHAT THE OUTCOME OF HIS LIFES EFFORTS WOULD BECOME AFTER HE WAS GONE?
HE MAY HAVE FOUND THE ANSWER HE WAS LOOKING FOR IN MATTHEW CHAPTER TWENTY FIVE, HERE IT IS.
JUST BEFORE JESUS CHRIST’S RETURN, WE SEE THE ONE HALF OF HIS CHURCH WHO HAVE RETAINED ENOUGH OF GOD’S SPIRIT, SEPARATE THEMSELVES TO CONTINUE THE COMMISSION GIVEN ONLY TO THE PHILADELPHIA ERA.
AND THEN TO GO ON TO MEET JESUS CHRIST, AS THE BRIDE OF CHRIST. WILL YOU BE THERE?
What Became Of THE PHILADELPHIA ERA Work?
ALMOST FORTY YEARS LATER WE SEE A SPLINTERED CHURCH SPENDING ALMOST 90% TITHES ON THEMSELVES.
ALL OF THIS SPENDING LEAVES VIRTUALLY NOTHING TO DO THE WORK GIVEN TO THE PHILADELPHIAN ERA!
THE COMMISSION TO REACH HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS IS NOT GETTING DONE! THE WORK IS “LUKEWARM”.
THE PRESENT CHURCH LEADERS HAVE FALLEN ASLEEP ENJOYING THEIR WEALTH, IN THE LAODICEAN CONDITION!
Forgetting The Philadelphia Era Work
THE COMMISSION JESUS CHRIST HAS GIVEN THE PHILADELPHIA ERA, TO USE THE OPEN DOOR OF RADIO, AND TELEVISION, AND PUBLISHING, WITH THE MULTIPLE MILLIONS OF BUYING POWER AT THEIR DISPOSAL, AT THIS LATE STAGE IN CHURCH HISTORY, HAS BEEN REDUCED DOWN TO A MONEY SAVING ATTEMPT!
ADOPTING THE PRACTICE OF THE NATIONS CHARITIES, USING 10% TO BRING IN 100% OF CONTRIBUTIONS!
Our Nations Not Being Warned
THESE FAITHFULLY PAID TITHE MILLIONS ENTRUSTED TO THOSE NOW LEADING IS BEING WASTED!
WITH NO REAL WARNING REACHING THE THREE HUNDRED AND SIXTY MILLION PEOPLE IN THE US AND CANADA!
WITH NO REAL WARNING REACHING THE MORE THAN ONE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE IN BRITAIN, AUSTRALIAN, NEW ZEALAND, WESTERN AND NORTH-WESTERN EUROPE, IRELAND, ISRAEL, AND THE BILLIONS IN OTHER NATION’S, BEFORE OUR NATIONS ARE DESTROYED!!!
SMALL MINDED MEN DO NOT SEE THE BIG PICTURE. THEY WILL NOT WRITE THESE CHECKS!
THAT WOULD UPSET THEIR EXECUTIVE LIFESTYLES BUDGET, THEIR ATTITUDE HAS BECOME LAODICEAN!
JESUS CHRIST WARNS THOSE IN THIS CONDITION “I WILL SPEW YOU OUT OF MY MOUTH!!!”
The Faithful Canadians
I was a friend of Dean Wilson, and Colin Adair, and George Patrickson, all heads of Worldwide in Canada. I was also pleased to count Raymond and Carl McNair as true friends.
I know the faithfulness of the Canadian members of God’s Church who supplied the financial means to be able to reach the rest of the world under Mr. Armstrong’s leadership!
And like the Armstrong’s I have Scottish blood, my Mother being descended from the McKenzie Highlanders, the Harris family name came to Southern England and Wales in 1066.
One third of the Canadian population are of Highland and Ulster Scottish descent.
In my ‘America’s Future’ found on Page 1 of the America And Britain’s Future Free Library, you will find how Eight out of Ten of Canada’s Founding Fathers were Highland Scots.
Two of my Uncles came to live in Toronto and Vancouver in the early Nineteen Fifties.
I met my Uncle George Harris in Vancouver, when I brought my young family from the British Isles to Vancouver Island forty seven years ago, to build on the Saanich Peninsula.
George Patrickson And Dean Wilson
At that time our Minister in Victoria was George Patrickson, Mr. Wilson would come over from Vancouver to visit.
Later he was our Evangelist in Portland, Oregon, and later our Minister/Evangelist in San Diego, California, where he protected me from the bad guys taking over Worldwide.
At least until he left the area, then they put me out. We had been visiting Global by then.
Refusing To Unite The Churches
Much of the Tithe money is from those faithful tithe payers in Canada, it should be paid out TO MEDIA IN ORDER TO GIVE THE CANADIAN PEOPLE A WARNING, and to give the Canadian Ministry additional perspective members to serve.
These Church leaders have refused to unite the Body of Jesus Christ! And have kept the Canadian members divided just as they have done around the world, you are condemned by Christ for this!
But after the separation of the Philadelphian and Laodicean Churches, which Jesus Christ mentions in Matthew 25, many Church families will be reunited!
Let those who are truly awake of Philadelphia form new churches, and begin to support this work, so the Hundreds of Millions in our nations will receive the warning Jesus Christ wants them to have!

From The Living Church Of God Annual Financial Report
THE LIVING CHURCH OF GOD HAS BEEN PAYING OUT LESS THAN TEN PERCENT OF THEIR TWENTY TWO MILLION DOLLAR PLUS INCOME TO TELEVISION NETWORKS AND FOR PUBLISHING, INCLUDING THE MAGAZINE!
When checking the TV stations they are on, these are almost all in second and third world countries, costing very little.
You find in the US, Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, they are mainly on Sunday Morning Religious television.
Most Americans, Canadians, Australians, New Zealanders, do not watch religious television, certainly not the British.
The Ministry doing Public Appearances are NOT supported with enough MEDIA spending to draw a crowd.
When Christ or one of the Apostles came to a city, that city would come out to hear them speak, yet today with the Media at our disposal an advertising campaign cannot be organized to achieve this?
Here Are The Details Of Their Spending.
The Living Church of God received Twenty Two Million, One Hundred and Eighty-Six Thousand, Three Hundred, and Forty-Eight Dollars ($22,186,348) in Tithes, Offerings, and Contributions in one year.
Yet spent only One Million Two Hundred and Sixty Three Thousand and Twenty Dollars ($1,263,020) to pay for all Television time and Publishing for the year, to reach the American and British people and the World!
THIS MEANS THAT ONLY 5.5% OR ONE-TWENTIETH OF THE TOTAL FUNDS RECEIVED WERE ACTUALLY PAID OUT TO TELEVISION NETWORKS! AND EVEN LESS, ONLY 4.45% WAS PAID OUT FOR PUBLISHING, INCLUDING 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! I was shocked to see these figures!
Taking Care Of Themselves First
THE MEN IN CHARGE HAVE NOW AWARDED THEMSELVES A RETIREMENT PLAN WITH MATCHING FUNDS!
If the plan pays four thousand a month for life, this would double to eight thousand, if the plan pays eight thousand a month, the amount would be sixteen thousand a month, and so on for life of God’s holy tithe money!
Please disclose these amounts in the next Annual Financial Report.
So those in charge of the Living Church are taking care of themselves first, and are spending little to walk through the open door of Radio, Television, and Publishing, which is the work Jesus Christ has given to the Philadelphia Era!
Tightly Limiting Media Payouts
They are producing a telecast that only a tiny fraction of the population will ever get to see!
Today in 2022 they have a Pie Chart on their website showing 20.8% going to the TV & Internet Department and 7.0 + going to the Editorial Department similar to 2018 figures.
BUT IF YOU CAN FIND THE 2018 FINANCIAL REPORT, NO MORE THAN TEN PERCENT OF TOTAL INCOME WAS ACTUALLY PAID OUT TO TELEVISION NETWORKS AND PUBLISHERS! THIS IS ONLY APPROXUMATELY ONE THIRD OF THE COMBINED 27.8 PERCENT.
This is why you must request the actual accountants Annual Financial Figures be displayed on each of the Churches websites. A Pie Chart will never give you this information!
So please demand the Annual Financial Report to be displayed permanently on each church Website.
A notice has been posted here for two years, to be contacted if these figures are incorrect, with no response.
Having Little Success
In one of Mr. Weston’s August Video Reports he mentions the telecast Presenters flying around the country to speak before those who have seen the telecast, finally admitting that this is yielding very little fruit.
But the main reason for this is that God The Father is no longer calling new people to any of these larger groups!
While I applaud the efforts of the Presenters and the men of the Ministry, until you separate yourselves from those who are restricting church finances, little success will be achieved.
The larger splintered church leaders are NOT fulfilling the Commission Jesus Christ has given the Philadelphia Era!
This is not referring only to the Living Church of God, all of these leaderships have become Laodicean in nature.
These churches should be using the Tens of Millions of Tithe money given to them to do AN EXTENSIVE MEDIA WORK!Walking through the “OPEN DOOR” of Radio, Television, and Publishing, reaching hundreds of Millions!
WHICH THE FINAL PHASE OF THE PHILADELPHIA ERA WILL DO, ONCE THEY HAVE SEPARATED THEMSELVES FROM THE FINANCIALLY LAODICEAN LEADERSHIPS, AND THE LAODICEAN HALF IN THESE SPLINTER CHURCHES.
A Financially “Lukewarm” Work
They are doing a deliberate financially “Lukewarm” Laodicean Ten Percent Work of NOT reaching the nations!
Over decades they have spent these Tens and even Hundreds of Millions on the Church, and on themselves!
SO GOD THE FATHER IS NO LONGER CALLING NUMBERS OF NEW PEOPLE TO ANY OF THESE LARGER GROUPS!
BUT THEY WILL NOT STOP TO ADMIT THAT THEY ARE OFFENDING JESUS CHRIST AND GOD THE FATHER!
OUR NATIONS WILL SOON BE SUFFERING TERRIBLY! IT IS WAY LATER THAN YOU PEOPLE THINK! WAKE UP!!!
A Friendly Presentation
If you notice Mr. Weston’s very friendly presentation, in his weekly, not monthly Videos, he includes the mention of the new telecasts being made each week.
But he does not tell you that these are not shown on Television Networks for millions to see!
That would cost more than the tightly controlled budget allows!
This is very subtle, actually a dishonesty on Mr. Weston’s part, I am very sorry to say.
And he always concludes with the mention of TITHE income. This is to remind you weekly, to send in your tithes.
Oh, and when I mention this, he suddenly cuts this line out of his next video.
How To Determine Laodicean LeadershipYou can determine which Era of God’s Church these men belong to.
As Laodiceans do have God’s spirit, here is the challenge for Ministers and Members to determine who is leading?
These splinter group leaders have proven over almost forty years that they will not spend the Tens of Millions provided each year on Radio, Television, and Publishing.
Philadelphian Era leadership would have spent these millions to reach the American and British people and the world!
JUST AS THE SARDIS ERA EXISTED ALONGSIDE THE PHILADELPHIA ERA, AS THE PHILADELPHIA ERA WORK BEGAN!
THEY HAVE PROVEN THEY ARE LAODICEAN IN ATTITUDE, THEY ARE PART OF THE FINAL LAODICEAN ERA!
They will exist simultaneously but apart from the awake Philadelphia Era, who must now separate themselves.
Only Philadelphian leadership will use Hundreds of Millions of God’s Tithe to walk through the open doors of Radio, Television, and Publishing, reaching our nations and the world, with the warning Jesus Christ wants them to receive!
I Am Not An Enemy
I have no personal dislike of Mr. Weston or anyone else in God’s Church, and I have no intention of continuing these articles one minute longer than it takes to see an extensive Philadelphian Era WARNING going out.
So please do not consider me an enemy of the Church, what is written here is very necessary. No hard feelings old chap.
But perhaps we could drop the smiles and the Soft Sell for just a bit, and level with the Church of God that a real WARNING work is NOT being done by any of these Church splinter groups.
That all of these weekly videos are to keep you TITHING and to keep you asleep to the fact that all of these Millions you are sending in, do NOT go to pay for the work given to THE PHILADELPHIA ERA!
I realize that this will offend you Church members who wish to remain asleep to these facts, but I intend to stand before Jesus Christ and at least be able to say that I tried to wake you up!
Not Doing The Philadelphia Era Work
SINCE THE TIME OF THE ARMSTRONG’S THE MILLIONS HAVE NOT KNOW THAT THE CHURCH OF GOD EXISTS!
LIKE THE REST OF THE LARGER SPLINTER GROUPS OF CHRIST’S DIVIDED BODY THEY REFUSE TO SPEND ANYWHERE NEAR ENOUGH OF THE MILLIONS OF FAITHFULLY PAID TITHE MONEY TO WARN THE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS IN OUR NATIONS OF THE TRAGEDY ABOUT TO STRIKE THEM IN AMERICA AND BRITAIN’S FUTURE.
FUNDS ARE BEING STRICTLY LIMITED WITH ONLY A “LUKEWARM” MEDIA WORK BEING DONE, WITH ONLY A FRACTION OF OUR POPULATIONS EVER TUNING IN TO THESE SUNDAY MORNING RELIGIOUS CHANNELS!
Let Jesus Christ Explain
WE HAVE ARRIVED AT THE POINT IN TIME WHEN JESUS CHRIST IS SEPARATING THE TWO FINAL CHURCH ERAS!
HE EXPLAINS IN MATTHEW 25 JUST BEFORE HIS RETURN A L L IN THE CHURCH FALLS ASLEEP, THIS INCLUDES LIVING!
THEN THAY ARE AWAKENED! AND HALF OF THOSE WHO HAVE MAINTAINED ENOUGH OF GOD’S SPIRIT WILL SEPARATE THEMSELVES-LEAVING HALF OF THOSE NOW IN THESE CHURCH GROUPS-TO GO BACK TO SLEEP!
THOSE WHO HAVE RETAINED THE CHARACTER OF THE PHILADELPHIAN ERA MUST NOW SEPARATE THEMSELVES IN ORDER TO COMPLETE THE WORK BEGAN BY MR. ARMSTRONG. WHAT HE CALLED THE GREAT COMMISSION!
AND IN MATTHEW 20 CHRIST TELLS US THAT GOD THE FATHER WILL THEN BEGIN TO CALL PERHAPS THOUSANDS OF NEW PEOPLE. THEY WILL HELP SUPPORT A 24/7 DAILY WARNING TO OUR NATIONS AND THE WORLD!
WE HAVE ALWAYS HAD TO WALK AWAY FROM THOSE CAUSING THE WORK TO FAIL, LET’S GET THE JOB DONE!
New Leadership Required
New leadership will be required to achieve the goal of those awaking Members of the Philadelphia Era.
The Philadelphia Ministry will need to be organized and new Local Churches formed uniting those Philadelphian Era members from every splinter church group!
And time on Major Radio and Television Networks purchased in our nations, and around the world!
Head Of The Philadelphia Era Ministry
I am inviting Mr. Jonathan McNair, to become head of the Philadelphian Era Ministry, following in his fathers footsteps.
There is no greater responsibility given to any man than to help complete the work of the Philadelphian Era, to warn ALL in our nations, as Jesus Christ’s Seven Thousand Year Plan for mankind proceeds.
I can be reached in the strictest confidence via the Contact Form found on the top bar of the Homepage.
We Have Gone Through A Lot
We have gone through a lot to maintain our beliefs, and to have the true teachings of the true Church of God preserved.
You will find these in the pages of the America And Britains Future Free Library.
One of the Apostles had said “to count it all joy” to have gone through our struggle.
I’m afraid I haven’t reached that state of perfection just yet, but I bear no animosity toward anyone in these churches.
The Right Side Of History
I have been on the right side of Church History for more than fifty years, and as Jesus Christ gives me guidance this will continue until the work of the Philadelphia Era is complete.
There is a WARNING work still to be done. This is given only to those who are awake in the Philadelphian Era!
Those who have the strength of God’s Spirit remaining to reorganize the Philadelphia Era, to get this work underway.
Just when half of the church believes the work is almost finished we can rest now, Jesus Christ tells those of the Philadelphia Era in Revelation Chapter 10 to “Go Prophesy Again!”
Let Us Restore to Philadelphian Values
LET’S END ALL OF THIS UNNECESSARY SPENDING AND GET ON WITH THE RADIO AND TELEVISION WORK GIVEN TO OUR ERA, BEFORE ALL OF THIS ENDS IN TRAGEDY FOR EVERY MINISTER WHO SUPPORTS THIS WASTING AWAY OF ALMOST ALL OF GOD’S HOLY TITHE!
WITH ONLY A SMALL MINORITY OF OUR POPULATION EVER SEEING OR HEARING ANYTHING PAID FOR BY THE CHURCH OF GOD TODAY. HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS IN THIS GENERATION DO NOT KNOW THAT THE CHURCH OF GOD EVEN EXISTS!
Then There Are The Doctors
Then there are the Doctors, one Doctor flying in from the UK and Northern Ireland, another flying in from Little Rock.
Do we not remember that Mr. Armstrong BANNED the use of DOCTOR in The Church of God, along with that vanity?
Could the cost of all of these flights around the country and around the world, the cost of all of these Hotel stays and all of these Conference Rooms, not be spent on Radio and Television, to do a better WARNING work?
Living University Orientation
Mr. Weston mentions the men arriving for their Nine Months of University training.
“Upon arrival they were taken to the mountains for a relaxing orientation with rafting on the river.”
No mention of camping out, so this was probably an all expenses paid stay at a Mountain Retreat.
Then back to meet the heads of departments they will be interacting with during this Nine Month all expenses paid visit!
This is on the TWO MILLION A YEAR Living University budget! You can’t dream this stuff up in adult life!
Costing three quarters of a million more than the entire amount paid to TV Networks and Publishers.
The Two Million Dollar University Budget of the peoples tithe money, allows these Doctors to live on their own Fantasy Island! When there are Church Members struggling to put gas in their vehicles to get to work!
Some of these people are in their third tithe year. With paying taxes, this is costing HALF of their family income, while these grown men go off to the mountains, rafting down the river at these peoples expense!The meaning of LA-LA LAND is a euphoric, dreamlike mental state detached from the harsher realities of life. These Doctors are definitely detached from all reality, and they may never wake up!
ALL OF THESE TWO MILLION SHOULD GO TO PURCHASE MEDIA TIME TO REACH OUT NATIONS EVERY YEAR!!!
Mr. Carl McNair and I saw eye to eye on spending matters, as well as seeing through men who were destroying the work of the Living Church of God!
These men are riding what he referred to as “The Gravy Train.” There is no sense of urgency here, all wasted money!
A General Response
Mr. Westin should agree to spend Millions to reach our nations and the world, but he will not do this.
He, like the rest of the larger splinter group leaders have lulled themselves to sleep by legally using up these Tens of Millions of God’s Tithe money every year, not doing THE PHILADELPHIA ERA WORK!
Jesus Christ describes them as feeling “Rich and increased with goods and believe they are in need of nothing, yet they are poor and wretched and blind” to their true condition!
Mr. Weston prefers to continue spending Tens of Thousands as he explained on Ministerial Conferences each year, admitting that these could be done using Skype.
But as he says, how good it feels to be able to sit and talk face to face, that would be over lunch and dinner in expensive Hotels and Restraints, costing Thousands of God’s Tithe that could be spent to warn our nations!
They are spiritually asleep, doing only a “LUKEWARM” work! Jesus Christ says He will spew them out of His mouth! They will wake up in the tribulation! Will you?
Jesis Christ Dividing Philadelphia From Laodicea
There is a separation happening Mr. Weston, and it will be HALF who will leave each of you sleeping churches.
Jesus Christ talks about this in Matthew 25, you can not stop this from happening, this is of God.
These are those who will dedicate their lives to giving an extensive worldwide WARNING as Jesus Christ has demanded of them! These are those who remain of THE PHILADELPHIA ERA of God’s Church!
Doing Business As Usual
The response from the various church leaders or lack of, shows they intend to do business as usual! They will not even display their Annual Financial Reports.
They have no intention of ending these Millions of Dollars of wasteful spending, and to begin spending this to do the work of the Philadelphia Era! THEY ARE IN THE LAODICEAN ATTITUDE!
As I have stated earlier I am not an enemy of the Church of God, and if only these men would spend the Millions which Jesus Christ has given them to reach the Hundreds of Millions of people in our nations with a proper warning, then I would be pleased to take these articles down.
But they will not change their Ten Percent “LUKEWARM” Laodicean ways. I am sorry to say.
This Is The Time of Matthew Chapter 25
We are now in the period of time when an extensive warning must be given by Philadelphians, who have been awakened to the fact that all of these Church Splinter groups combined, are not reaching the hundreds of millions in our nations!
Because they have refused to spend the Millions of God’s Tithe to do so!!!
And so we must now fulfill Jesus Christ’s prophecy, separating ourselves to complete the work of the Philadelphia Era, and thereby qualify to meet the Bridegroom.
We will be HALF of the membership of all of these Splinter Group churches combined, as Jesus Christ mentions.
And in Matthew Chapter 20, God The Father has said that He will call perhaps thousands of new laborers “near the end of the day” to this work. We will spend Millions of His Tithe Money to reach the Hundreds of Millions in our nations and around the world!
Looking For Sunday Morning Converts
As you scroll through the list of cheaper stations the LCG television department has acquired, you will find that very little has been done to spend real money to reach our American and British descendant nations.
In Britain, you will find two telecasts only on Sunday listed for the entire country.
And in Canada you will find only one telecast on Sunday listed in a few larger cities.
In all of Australia there are only two Sunday Morning telecasts. And as you find New Zealand, you will find only two telecasts on Sunday Morning, for the entire country.
And when you find the US almost all are on a Sunday Morning.
Operating Within The Ten Percent
THEY ARE SIMPLY OPERATING WITHIN A STRICT TEN PERCENT BUDGETED!
MOSTLY PURCHASING TIME ON THESE INFERIOR SUNDAY MORNING ‘CHRISTIAN NETWORKS’.
COMPARED TO THE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE THAT COULD BE REACHED BY USING FIFTY PERCENT OF THE TWENTY TWO MILLION INCOME ($22,186,348) FOR THE YEAR, ON POPULAR TV CHANNELS!
This is not a work of warning the American And British peoples at all!
This is being run as a business, and what you see here is business as usual! I AM VERY SORRY TO SAY.
They are following the modern day charities example of spending only Ten Percent to bring in One Hundred Percent!
THEY ARE REFUSING TO INVEST PROPER AMOUNTS OF TITHE MONEY TO REACH THE MORE THAN THREE HUNDRED AND THIRTY MILLION PEOPLE IN THE US, SIXTY THREE MILLION IN BRITAIN, MORE THAN THIRTY MILLION IN CANADA, TWENTY MILLION IN AUSTRALIA, AND ALMOST SIX MILLION IN NEW ZEALAND!
Following The Charities Example
They are simply following the example of many of the larger Charitable Organizations who are paying out TEN PERCENT to make it appear to their contributors that a large scale work is being done, when NO real benefit has been achieved!
As the remaining Ninety Percent (90%) is allocated within the organization, to the church, and to themselves!
THIS SAME STRATEGY IS BEING PRACTICED IN OTHER LARGE GROUPS OF THE DIVIDED CHURCHES OF GOD.
SHAME ON THESE MEN CONTROLLING GOD’S TITHES AND OFFERINGS! WITH ONLY A FRACTION OF THESE MILLIONS GOING TO WARN THE AMERICAN AND BRITISH PEOPLE AND THE WORLD!
What is true is the Living Church is spending almost as much on their car fleet rental as they are paying out to television networks! According to their financial report they spend almost One And A Quarter Million Dollars on this!
Only a financially “LUKEWARM” Laodicean Work is being done by each of these splinter groups!
Where Did The Remaining Twenty Millions Go?
COMPARATIVELY, LITTLE WAS GIVEN TO THE PHILADELPHIA ERA WORK OF MEDIA AND PUBLISHING!
YET THE OPEN DOOR OF RADIO AND TELEVISION AND PUBLISHING IS THE W O R K GIVEN TO PHILADELPHIA!
SO WHAT DOES THIS TELL US? THE ANSWER IS THESE CHURCH LEADERSHIPS HAVE BECOME LAODICEAN!
As stated the Living Church of God car rental cost of One And A Quarter Million Dollars (1,250,000,000) is almost as much as the entire allowance paid to TV Networks and Publishers!
THE REMAINING NINETY PERCENT (90%) WAS USED UP ON THE CHURCH, ON HEADQUARTERS RUNNING COSTS, ON LEADERSHIP, MINISTERIAL, AND STAFF SALARIES, ON THE MATCHING FUNDS PENSION PLAN, ON THE ALL EXPENSES PAID MINISTERIAL CONFERENCES, PAID FEAST EXPENSES, AND ON PAID VACATIONS AND MORE.
‘LIVING UNIVERSITY’ COSTS THREE QUARTERS OF A MILLION MORE THAN SPENT ON MEDIA & PUBLISHING!
In these closing days of our nations, these so called Universities should be discontinued, United has one. There are several ways for these men to continue their education costing almost nothing.
BUT THEN THIS IS THE SUPPOSED DOCTORS IN GOD’S MINISTRY TWO MILLION A YEAR PET PROJECTS!
NO ONE IN THE MINISTRY OF THE PHILADELPHIA ERA SHOULD BE USING THIS VANITY, HWA CONDEMNED IT!
All Of These Millions Gone!
I AM SORRY TO SEE THAT THIS IS THE FEEBLE ATTEMPT BEING MADE BY THE LIVING CHURCH OF GOD LEADERSHIP TO REACH OUR NATIONS WITH ANY KIND OF A REAL WARNING WORK OF WHAT IS TO COME UPON THEM IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE! THIS REALLY SADDENS ME.
ALL OF THESE MILLIONS GONE EXCEPT FOR FOUR MILLION DOLLARS NOT PAID OUT IN THAT YEAR, VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME TO BELIEVE!
I ACTUALLY DID TRUST THE LIVING CHURCH MORE THAN ALL OTHER SPLINTER GROUPS TO USE GOD’S TITHE WISELY TO DO A REAL WARNING WORK AND NOT JUST TO PRESENT A TOKEN GESTURE OF A WORK BEING DONE!
Ministerial Conferences Being Held Regionally
In the same report Mr. Westons mentions Ministerial Conferences being held in various regions of the US and around the world.
I am sorry to see that this year he is justifying this continued spending, by telling church members “YOU WILL BE ATTENDING YOUR OWN CONFERENCE SOON called The Feast of Tabernacles!”
Do you remember Mr. Armstrong stopped anyone referring to the Feast of Tabernacles as a Festival!
What would he think of this guy in charge of a Church of God referring to the Feast as a CONFERENCE???
He is using this to justify the continued spending, by persuading you that you enjoy your own conference so why not us?
That is because Church Members pay their own way Mr. Weston. And would prefer you conduct these conferences online cutting costs! Saving many tens of thousands amounting to Millions of unnecessary spending.
AND WOULD MUCH PREFER THAT THESE MILLIONS BE USED TO DO THE WORK OF WARNING OUR NATIONS!!!
He mentions the tremendous camaraderie expressed during these conferences. That is all well and good, but our nation’s are nearing the time of their total destruction!!!
This goes to show just how removed this man is from the reality of today’s situation, he will not end wasteful spending!
Please save these Tens of Thousands and Millions to pay for MEDIA and Publishing?
To Find These Figures
To verify these figures contained in the Annual General Report, and to see where Ninety Percent of God’s Tithe went, check this out before it is taken down. This still appeared in 2020.
Go to LCG.ORG, click on ‘ABOUT’ on the top bar. But do not click on anything in the ARROWED BOX which pops up if you want to see the accountants actual figures.
Scroll to the bottom of the ‘ABOUT’ page, there you will find ‘Living Church of God 2015 to 2018 Consolidated Financials. Click on the 2018 Report and scroll down through nineteen pages to Page 20 and see the last four columns, to view the Twenty Two Million + Total Income found on the right.
To verify the already mentioned: You might like to find HAULING & EQUIPMENT RENTALS (in accountants terminology) This equals Approx. $1,250,296. This figure is mentioned in more than one location. It is the huge amount paid out mainly for fleet car rental, also may include truck rental.
I was shocked and so should all of your members be shocked to read through these figures if still available!
See Travel, Meals And ‘Personal Development.’
This 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 in the entire ministry and their wives to Charlotte for the expensive Ministerial Conference each year, with another rental car provided.
WITH HIGH-QUALITY HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS, INCLUDING ALL MEALS, BUFFETS, AND THE BANQUET, REPEATED AGAIN AT FEAST TIME, AND AGAIN ON PAID VACATIONS.
The meals mentioned in this heading also include the leadership and the ministry buying breakfasts, lunches, dinners and tea for the Brit’s (just a little British humor there to help us through these depressing accounts.)
Then eating out with family and friends after church on the Sabbath and on Holy Days, and during the Feast of Tabernacles, all on the Church Credit Card adding up to Thousands of Tithe Payers Dollars spent throughout the year!
I actually began declining invites to eat out with Mr. Meredith when I realized that ALL of these meals were going on all of these headquarters men’s Church Credit Cards.
With them piling into the minibus to be driven to the best restraints after Sabbath services in Rancho Bernardo, C.A.
Mr. Carl McNair’s Statement
The larger church group leaders are still living like we have Two Hundred Million coming in, as was in Worldwide.
And of course the Church Credit Card for meals is just one more way of transferring more thousands of Tithe Dollars to the Leadership and the Ministry in order to maintain the high cost of the Executive Lifestyle.
What the former head of the LCG Ministry, Mr.Carl McNair referred to as being “on the gravy train!”
Paying Our Own Way
Church of God Members and their families eat out on the Sabbath, and on the Holy Days, and at the Feast, they pay for their own meals, and so should everyone else.
The cost of meals must be mentioned in this category in order to make these tax deductible with the I.R.S.
And of course the Ministry has the tremendous Tax Advantage over church members, with the Tax Deductible ‘Parsonage Deduction’ which they are permitted to take every year. Including everything from ‘home heating and cooling costs all the way down to paper products.’
Tens of Thousands on Ministerial Conference
In his video of March 2020 he announced the cancellation of the the Ministerial Conference due to CV-19. Mr. Weston also mentions "THOUSANDS AND TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS BEING SPENT ON THESE CONFERENCES."
Ask for this video to be reposted to hear the cost involved in hosting these extravagant gatherings.
Holding these was permissible when the Worldwide income was up to Two Hundred Million a year. But today these get togethers are a total waste of God’s Tithe which should be spent on Radio and on Television to reach our nations!
Illegal With GOD
ALL OF THIS UNNECESSARY SPENDING IS LEGAL WITHIN THESE CHURCH ORGANIZATIONS, BUT IT IS ILLEGAL IN GOD’S EYES, WITH JESUS CHRIST STILL THE LIVING HEAD OF THE CHURCH OF GOD TODAY, AND N O T THESE MEN!
These men in these temporary positions in these larger groups, are in GOD’S EYES squandering too much precious Tithe!
YOU ARE N O T SPENDING IT TO REACH THE AMERICAN AND BRITISH PEOPLE WITH A WARNING!!!
AND I AM SORRY TO SAY THAT EVEN THE SMALL AMOUNT BEING SPENT ON TELEVISION IS TO CONVINCE THE CHURCH MEMBERS THAT A GREAT WORK IS BEING DONE, IN ORDER TO HAVE THEM CONTINUE TITHING THE MORE THAN TWENTY-TWO MILLION DOLLARS, YEAR AFTER YEAR, IN THE CASE OF THE LIVING CHURCH!
AND THE SAME IS TRUE IN OTHER LARGE CHURCH SPLINTER GROUPS TO KEEP THE MILLIONS ROLLING IN!
THE LEADERSHIP AND MINISTRY ARE RIGHT NOW BEING JUDGMENT ON THESE ABUSES. AND YOU ARE BEING FOUND GUILTY OF WASTING MILLIONS, WHICH SHOULD BE USED TO DO THE WORK OF WARNING OUR NATIONS!
TODAY THE EZEKIEL WARNING IS UPON YOUR SHOULDERS!
This Can Be Stopped
ALL OF THESE ABUSES OF GOD’S HOLY TITHE IN ALL OF THESE LARGE SPLINTER CHURCH GROUPS CAN AND MUST BE STOPPED BY Y O U MEMBERS SHOWING ENOUGH MATURE CHARACTER. BY REFUSING TO PAY ANY MORE OF GOD’S TITHE TO THESE MEN!
VERY LITTLE OF THESE TWENTY TWO MILLION DOLLARS IN THE CASE OF THE LIVING CHURCH OF GOD IS BEING SPENT TO REACH OUR NATIONS. AND I FEAR THAT THIS IS WORSE IN THE OTHER LARGE GROUPS!
THE MAJORITY OF THIS MONEY SHOULD BE SPENT TO BUY RADIO AND TELEVISION TIME ON A THOUSAND STATIONS IN THE US AND CANADA. AND ON A THOUSAND MORE AROUND THE WORLD!
INTENSIFIED ON STATIONS IN BRITAIN, AUSTRALIA, AND NEW ZEALAND, AND IN WESTERN AND NORTH-WESTERN EUROPE AND IN ISRAEL, IN ORDER TO WARN OUR NATIONS OF WHAT WILL SOON BEFALL THEM!
AND TO ALLOW THEM TO HEAR THE GOOD NEWS OF THE COMING KINGDOM OF GOD BEFORE THEY GO THROUGH THE COMING ORDEAL OF THE DESTRUCTION OF THEIR NATIONS!
PLEASE SEE: ‘HOW TO SAVE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO FINISH THE WORK’ ON THE CHURCH PAGE!’
Now See: Salaries, Wages, And Benefits
THIS AMOUNT IS SHOWN LISTED AS FOUR MILLION DOLLARS $4,000,000. CALL THIS BASE PAY!Add the $699,848 on flights, Hotel rooms, and meals on the Church Credit Card throughout the year. The Personal Development what ever this may be? Yes, church members are paying these Six Hundred And Ninety Nine Thousand, Eight Hundred.
Add in the Car Fleet totaling $1,250,000 and the Gas Cards, with almost no perspective members to visit!
Add in the Conference Hotel stays for Ministers, Elders, and their wives, with flights and more rental cars.
Then add in the 7.16% for ‘support services.’ Another One And A Half Million! ($1,500,000+) Approx. This is another figure that is greater than that sent to the Television Networks to do the work of the Philadelphia Era!
Add in a family health and dental plan of a thousand or more per family per month.
Add to this the Pension Plan which figures are not shown, some receiving Matching Funds from God’s Tithe!
ALL OF THIS EQUALS AN ADDITIONAL APPROX. EIGHT MILLION ADDED TO THE FOUR MILLION DOLLAR FIGURE, NOW EQUALLING AROUND TWELVE MILLION DOLLARS OF TITHE MONEY.
ADD ‘HEADQUARTERS RUNNING COSTS’ AND ‘FEEDING THE FLOCK’.
ALL OF THIS SPENDING LEAVES VIRTUALLY N O T H I N G TO BE USED TO DO THE WORK THAT JESUS CHRIST HAS GIVEN TO THE PHILADELPHIA ERA OF HIS CHURCH! THIS IS JUST NOT HAPPENING!!!
Spending All These Millions
THEY HAVE BEEN SPENDING ALL THESE MILLIONS AND HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OVER THE DECADES TO DO ANYTHING BUT WHAT JESUS CHRIST WANTS DONE!
THAT IS TO W A R N OUR NATIONS OVER THE PAST FORTY YEARS BY USING THESE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS!
THIS MONEY HAS LULLED THESE MEN IN LEADERSHIP INTO THE LAODICEAN ATTITUDE!!!
THESE FIGURES SHOW THAT THEY SPEND MILLIONS OF GOD’S HOLY TITHE MONEY ON THEMSELVES!
PLEASE STOP GIVING THEM ANY MORE OF GOD’S TITHE TO CONTINUE TO WASTE AWAY!
PLEASE SAVE YOUR TITHES UNTIL THE PHILADELPHIA CHURCH ERA CAN BE REORGANIZED!

We are not finished counting yet, although I wish we were and that is what these men hope, that you will not read these figures, but we must as responsible stewards of God’s Holy Tithe!
THIS IS MORE DEPRESSING THAN THE COVID-19 VIRUS HANGING AROUND!
See: The Detailed Matching Funds Pension Plan!
FIND THE DETAILS ON THE PENSION PLAN. READ OF THE DISGRACEFUL ‘MATCHING FUNDS’ FROM YOUR TITHE DOLLARS FOR THE LEADERSHIP, AND OF COURSE THEY DO NOT REVEAL THE AMOUNTS GIVEN TO THESE MEN!
And notice how the retirement fund can even be paid as far back as the PREVIOUS ASSOCIATION, would that be The Global Church of God, or even further back?
SO DOES THIS MEAN THAT MR. AMES IS WORKING ON HIS SECOND MILLION DOLLAR CHURCH RETIREMENT?
ACCORDING TO MR. RAYMOND McNAIR, THESE OLDER MEN RECEIVED A MILLION DOLLARS EACH.
These Are The Accountants Actual Figures!
This shows the story of where the money has gone within the Living Church of God and even more importantly I have helped explain where it should have been going! It is NOT being used to give a warning to our nations soon to suffer Starvation, Nuclear Attack, and National Captivity!
NONE OF THESE FIGURES ARE SHOWN ON A PIE CHART WHICH IS ALL THAT MOST PEOPLE WILL GLANCE AT!
BUT YOU MUST DEMAND THAT THE ACCOUNTANTS ANNUAL FIGURES BE DISPLAYED ON THE WEBSITE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THESE MEN ARE DOING!
BECAUSE A REAL WORK TO REACH THE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS IS N O T BEING PERFORMED!
AND YOU LCG MEMBERS CAN SEE, THAT MOST ALL OF THIS TWENTY TWO MILLION DOLLARS (22,000,000+) IS BEING SPENT WITHIN THE CHURCH ORGANIZATION, UP TO NINETY PERCENT!
AND IT IS NOT BEING PAID OUT TO RADIO AND TELEVISION AND PUBLISHING IN THE UNITED STATES, BRITAIN, CANADA, AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND, OR IN WESTERN AND NORTH-WESTERN EUROPE, TO GET A WARNING OUT TO THE HALF A BILLION DESCENDANTS OF ANCIENT ISRAEL!
We Must Be On One Thousand Radio And Television Stations!
RADIO ACTUALLY REACHES TWENTY PERCENT MORE PEOPLE IN AMERICA AND BRITAIN TODAY THAN TELEVISION!
WE MUST BE ON ONE THOUSAND RADIO AND TELEVISION STATIONS IN THE US AND CANADA!
These men will never present a WARNING to the hundreds of millions in our nations!
THEY PROBABLY DON’T EVEN BELIEVE THAT THIS CAN BE DONE! BUT OF COURSE IT CAN, AND IT WILL BE DONE!
But you members must stop giving them any more of God’s Tithe money so it is no longer wasted!
We Have Been Asleep!
WE HAVE BEEN ASLEEP WHERE THESE M E N ARE CONCERNED, THEY HAVE BEEN CONVINCING US THAT A REAL WORK IS BEING DONE! AND IT IS N O T BEING DONE, BECAUSE THEY REFUSE TO PAY OUT GOD’S TITHED MILLIONS TO THE NETWORKS TO BUY MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF TELEVISION TIME!
WE HAVE A L L BEEN WAY TOO INNOCENT AND W A Y TOO TRUSTING BRETHREN!
IT IS TIME TO WAKE UP TO WHAT THE MEN WE HAVE RELIED UPON HAVE BEEN DOING WITH GOD’S TITHE!
YOU WILL WAKE UP IN THE TRIBULATION – WITH NO REAL WORK HAVING BEEN DONE BY YOUR CHURCH LEADERS.
NOT HAVING REACHED OUR POPULATIONS WHO WOULD BE LEFT TO DIE WITHOUT ANY REAL W A R N I N G REACHED THEM, IF THOSE TRUE PHILADELPHIAN ERA MEMBERS DO NOT WALK AWAY TO GET THIS DONE!
WE CAN NO LONGER TRUST THESE CHURCH LEADERS!
Please see: ‘HOW TO SAVE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO FINISH THE WORK! on The Church Page.’
Let Us Continue
Sorry to prolong the agony, but we are almost finished. Find the Pie Chart on the LCG website.
There are two Pie Charts. One Pie Chart shows 20.8% of funds received went to the Media Department (Now changed to read Television and Internet Department).
BUT IN THE ANNUAL REPORT SHOWS ONLY $1,263,020 WAS PAID OUT TO TELEVISION & PUBLISHERS!
IF ONLY 5.5% WAS ACTUALLY PAID OUT TO TELEVISION NETWORKS, BUT 20.8% OF TOTAL FUNDS WENT TO THE TELEVISION DEPARTMENT? PLEASE SHOW THE PRODUCTION COSTS OF THESE TELECASTS?
HAS AN ENTIRE DEPARTMENT BEEN LAZING AROUND WASTING THEIR DAYS AND MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF GOD’S TITHE MONEY, WHEN ONE PERSON ON A CAMERA AND ONE PERSON ON AN EDITING PROGRAM COULD HAVE DONE ALL OF THIS?
Carving Up The Pie!
And on one of the Pie Charts 54.9% was paid to ‘Feeding the Flock’ then 37.94% was paid too ‘Preaching the Gospel’
And another 40.9% was paid to ‘Support of Local Congregations’?
You must go to the Accountants Annual General Report to know how all of these percentages were created, and who actually received this money and benefited from it?
And ‘Support Services’ 7.16% not sure what this one is? ONE AND A HALF MILLION DOLLARS, WAY MORE THAN THE TV NETWORKS AND PUBLISHING BUDGET!
Since my first reading of the 2018 Pie Chart it still shows the same approx. 20% to the Television Department and 7% to the Editorial Department. But the budgets for these two departments are much, much, more than that paid out to air the ‘TOMORROWS WORLD’ program and to publish the MAGAZINE.
A request was made two years ago for details of any errors in what has been stated here, with no response.
I AM SORRY TO REPORT THAT THESE FIGURES ARE NO LONGER POSTED IN AUGUST OF 2022.
ASK MR.WESTON TO REPOST THESE AND THE 2019, 20, 21 ACCOUNTANTS REPORTS FOR ALL TO SEE.
It is stated below the Pie Chart in brackets, that the Financial Report is available below, but only the Pie Chart appears. So please Mr. Weston display your most recent financial report.
We must make do with the earlier figures for now, but the amount going to the Television Department on both Pie Charts remains the same, and only a small percentage of this was paid out to TV Networks!
Churches Wasting Millions More
MILLIONS OF GOD’S TITHE MONEY HAS BEEN SPENT TO BUILD, AND TO REBUILD, AND TO RUN ALL OF THESE TELEVISION STUDIOS IN ALL OF THE SPLINTER GROUPS.
THE COSTS IN OPERATING THE LIVING, UNITED, FLURY, AND PACK, STATE OF THE ART STUDIOS IS HIGH.
I CANNOT FIND WHERE PECK IS SPENDING ANY MONEY ON TELEVISION, YET HE BUILT THIS EDIFIS!
See the article ‘Another New Church Headquarters & Ever Growing Campus’ for more on the Reformed Church.
MILLIONS MORE WILL BE WASTED EVERY YEAR ON RUNNING THESE SEVERAL CHURCH HEADQUARTERS, AND TO PAY ALL OF THESE TELEVISION DEPARTMENTS MANAGERS AND PRODUCTION STAFF, AND ALL OF THESE EDITORIAL DEPARTMENTS STAFF, WHEN ALL OF THIS SHOULD BE CONDENSED INTO JUST ONE!
HOW DID THE SQUANDERING OF GOD’S TITHE EVER GET TO THIS POINT ACHIEVING ALMOST NOTHING?
It Is Time To Walk Away
This was written to Mr. Weston in early 2020 with nothing changing. I am sorry to report to you church members.
You will see nothing change for the better with these church leaders in charge! These men are all set in their ways!
They are not about to deprive themselves of anything which they now enjoy! They actually have become “rich and increased with goods” and feel “they are in need of nothing!”
It is now time for those who wish to support a real Philadelphia Era Nationwide and Worldwide WARNING work to walk away from these splintered churches causing the work to FAIL.
It has always been necessary to do this in order to have the work of the Philadelphia Era survive.
And it will be no different today to complete the final phase of the work Jesus Christ has given to true Philadelphians.
Please Save God’s Tithe
Save God’s Tithe until those members who still retain enough of God’s Spirit can be organized into one body, in order to finish the work of The Great Commission, given only to those who are awake in the Philadelphian Era of God’s church.
Please read Jesus Christ’s parable in Matthew Chapter 25, where He explains this point in time in the Church of God, when He is separating out those of Philadelphia from the final Church era.
Jesus Christ explains that those leaving these Church splinter groups to make up the final phase of the Philadelphia Era will be HALF the total of all of these.
And please read in Matthew Chapter 20 where He explains that when we begin to give an extensive warning to our nations and to the world, God the Father will call perhaps thousands “near the end of the day” to help finish the work!
And their reward will be just the same as those who have labored all of these years will receive!
Please do not continue any longer with business as usual, sacrifice now, time is running out on the Church of God!
If you think this was painful to read, just think how difficult it was to write.
If you members are being told that this is an attack on the Church of God, have them take this up with Jesus Christ!
I am looking forward to the day when I will be able to take down these articles exposing the failures of these splinter groups leaders, and be given more time to work on other subjects.
BUT HAVING OUR NATIONS RECEIVE A FAIR WARNING IS THE MOST IMPORTANT MATTER OF JESUS CHRISTS CONCERN TODAY! WHEN THIS IS DONE HIS SEVEN THOUSAND YEAR PLAN CAN MOVE AHEAD.
I wish to make it clear that I bear no ill will toward anyone in the splintered Churches, I am not a vindictive person.
My only hope is that those who cannot see where we now stand, will fast and pray asking God our Father for guidance.
The final Era of the Church has formed, led by men refusing to unite the Body of Christ, doing only a “LUKEWARM” work.
All too much for you? Believe me you ain’t seen nothin yet. Please wake up now!!!
These men will not change their Ten Percent Laodicean ways. I am sorry to say.
Time is short, as those who are awake now can see!
Let those who are truly awake of Philadelphia form new churches, and begin to support this work, so the Hundreds of Millions in our nations will receive the warning Jesus Christ wants them to have!
