False Prophet Ronald Weinland was in Spokane, after a trip back to Cincinnati during the week. During the week he added yet one more associate elder: Beth Bucheit is the mother-in-law of fellow associate elder Joey Shockey whose ordination was announced last weekend. As a reminder, while I was able to supply last names for most the the first names that Ron gave, I’m still missing a few and would appreciate your help closing the gap.
Technical problems plagued Ron’s Internet streaming audio broadcast. He lost connection twice, despite whatever precautions he took against static. I can imagine Ron up there looking like Michael Jackson as he moonwalks through the scriptures wearing his static control glove.
Ron finally had the radio interview he had previously talked about. But he’s not posting it, claiming the interviewer was dull. Ron, how about posting it anyway and let us decide if it’s dull. I suspect it was rather the opposite, with the interviewer holding Ron’s feet to the fire about the failed prophecies in his book.
Weinland took a tour through history, mentioning his split-off from UCG. In December of 1996 he sent out an email to all the UCG elders complaining about certain unauthorized expenditures. According to Ron, after that email, the head of the UCG ethics committee called to visit, and then a week later called accusing Ron of having said certain things during the phone call. But Ron had a recording of the conversation and within a year that individual was dead. Wonder if Ron placed a death curse on him at that time the way he did me 55 weeks ago. Ron resigned from UCG sometime in May of 1997, although recently he has claimed that his resignation was on Pentecost which in 1997 was in June.
Ron gave a cheerleading session for the new changes in the status of women. The spotlight is being focused on the church, and Ron appreciated my putting names on the Internet. Ron, if you like it so much why not add a page to your website and put up the names and photos of all of your elders? And you could start by giving last names during your ordination announcements, which you did not today for Beth Bucheit. That is if you really feel that what I’m doing is helping and you’re not saying this as a lame attempt at reverse psychology. If you want to paint my small blog as “big things taking place” and even the Sixth Thunder, well then, have at it. 😀
One thing that may change is allowing women to preach and give prayers. Ron was emphatic that wouldn’t happen. But he was also emphatic in December of 2008 that Laura would be the only one ordained. And he was emphatic back this summer that he was not an Apostle. And he’s quite emphatic that to deny Herbert Armstrong was the end-time Elijah to to deny God. God-denying Ronald Weinland.
Ron talked about all the people who are waiting for him to admit to being a false prophet. I don’t think there is anyone who is waiting for that, but if there are I am not one of them. When Ron gave his “If by Pentecost” declaration on March 29, 2008 promising to quit preaching and admit being a false prophet by the end of July of 2008 if his prophecies did not materialize, my immediate response was he wouldn’t do it. Ron will still not admit to being a false prophet when Jesus Christ does not return 124 weeks from now. Let me emphasize: Ronald Weinland will never admit to being a false prophet. Not even on May 28, 2012.
