Weinland’s First Overseas Trip for 2010

False Prophet Ronald Weinland has updated his published itinerary to include a trip March 27 through April 6 to New Zealand and Australia for Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread.

Given his usual pattern, we could expect a trip to Europe for Pentecost, another trip “down under” for the Feast of Tabernacles, and one or two more European trips late in the year.  I wonder if the tithes and offerings of the overseas members pay for the travel expenses for the Two Witnesses and whomever else they decide to bring along with them.

I also wonder if the Son of Perdition realizes that the statute of limitations clock stops ticking whenever he’s out of the country, giving IRS Criminal Investigation that much more time to build a case against him.

    I have a creepy feeling Ron is going to slip out of the IRS’s grasp with nothing more than a small fine and a requirement to keep better records.

  • Baywolfe says:

    Excuse me, but when are the Two Witlesses going to get their prophetic asses down to Jerulsalem, jerk on some sackcloth, and start laying some End of the World jive on the masses?

    Oh, that’s right, their god backed up the timetable didn’t he?

    The whole WCOG/XCOG church structures exemplify everything that’s wrong with how our government deals with churches in America. They can just cruise around the world on tax free money, and Unca Sam closes his eyes since Ron claims to have a “worldwide” church.

  • Whisper says:

    Ron, being an agent of evil, does not go away in a flash of handcuffs etc… oh no, Ron will go a way slowly over time, after many a year to spread the poison and ruin lives slowly. It would be a kindness to see the government incarcerate ol Ron, but I personally have little faith in that. I really rather expect that Evil Ronny will continue to spew vitriol for years and years to come harming everyone whom hears him. I expect ol Ron to go out slowly, becoming more frail and less able to do the serman things over time.
    On a positive note this is how many of harmful person goes out, slowly, to give those who follow time to come to terms with his evil and lesson the “end of the game” withdrawl from his cult.
    It’s such a very hard and long road and I believe Ron will walk its full length of personal failure and harm to others.

    On the other hand maybe he will pull his own cork in the J-City at the end of his “prophecy”? How long is that away now?
    His “God Given” prophecy called it Novemeber 2011, his second guess called it June 2012. His second and a half guess did not push that end date, but did change the begining time. His third guess will more than likely create an “open ended” date for 2013+.

    False prophets are so hard to pin down… Maybe that it what makes them “false”?

    Go figure.

    he better go cash all his (our the churchs euros ) in and tell all the people he had buy them before they crash.

  • Steve says:

    Ron would be better known as Mr Fickle.

    They already tried that.

    Twice.

    Still no Tribulation.

    Forgot to add a link to the sermon summary from April 17, 2008. Delivered “live from Jerusalem”, I think the title of this sermon was very apt, personally.

    (Remember, this sermon was delivered, April 17, 2008.)

    “It Has Begun”

    Sorry, Weinland, what was that? What began on April 17, 2008?

    Oh, that’s right. A big fat NOTHING. But you knew that already, didn’t you Weinland? No one else may know it. everyone else may think that you’re drinking your own Kool-Aid and are mentally ill. but I know the truth, and always have: YOU’RE ONLY IN IT FOR THE MONEY.

    The Feds are starting to realize it, though, and no amount of posturing in their court of law is going to get you an insanity defence, for misappropriating the members’ funds.

  • Aggie says:

    Takeaway quote from the sermon:

    0:17:05 RW Sermon April 19, 2008 “It Has Begun”

    “My first exercise in use of power is to you mockers. It begins with you. You will be the first to experience [it]. You don’t have to wait long. For those who mock from this day forward, by what you say against god’s people, for what you say against god’s truths, you will suffer from sickness that will eat you from the inside out and you will die. Your death will not be quick.”

  • Aggie says:

    You know, reading back through the comments, I’ve got to say Weinland really did lay the “crazy old f” bs on really thick, during Timeline One. Hell, even I bought it. “If by Pentecost” pretty much put paid to that (Literally!), however.

  • Whisper says:

    Ron with power?
    Oh my, but wouldn’t that be giving power tools into the hands of babes.
    He would more than likely blow his own leg off firing off the “power” before he ever got a “mocker” into his sights…

    But of course we who believe would never imagine God giving likes of wicked-weinland a “power”.
    That would be like nuns handing out handguns to the 1st graders. The results would be obvious…

    🙂

    His lunatic journey into the depths of his mind.

  • Steve says:

    Fickle= Characterized by erratic changeableness or instability, especially with regard to affections or attachments; capricious

  • Mike (DDTFA) says:

    Ron has been fickle in some areas, not in others. He certainly has been fickle about which titles he’s willing to claim and to assign to others such as his spiritual idol Herbert Armstrong.

    OTOH, I don’t think he’s fickle toward his family, as he’s increasingly engaging them in his family business. And not fickle about a general doctrine that he speaks for God.

  • Aggie says:

    Hmmm, but doesn’t Weinland use the weasel words, “god just places it in my mind”? That was always the approach the church took before, and was why we were encouraged NOT to evangelize. (The real reason was so people wouldn’t try and talk us out of the cult, though.) The Holy Spirit (force/breath/wind/soul of “god”) was what opened our minds, or so we were told. Baptized members had this elemental spirit in them, unbaptized members and “the worldly” did not. Children of baptized members, we were told in the Y.E.S. Youth Bible Lessons, “have the Holy Spirit working with [them], not in [them], because [their] parents are baptized”.

    Those of us with one parent in, and one parent out, of course, only got the Holy Spirit “working with us” in half-measures, since one parent was considered “spiritually dead”. As it was a first marriage for both, though, D&R still had precedence at the time, and they never split up when they should have.

    Damn. I don’t really know why all that just rambled out of me…..I miss AW. 🙁

  • Mike (DDTFA) says:

    I guess I was lucky that Y.O.U. hadn’t really started up in earnest when I was a teen forced to warm the hard metal folding chairs of a WCG congregation. There were a few false YOU starts, with an adult making a lame attempt in the local congregation at it. I had contact with the same person 20 years later in another context, and amazingly we never discussed our WCG association, pretending it had never happened. He was even living in the same house in which he hosted youth meetings.

    “I had contact with the same person 20 years later in another context, and amazingly we never discussed our WCG association, pretending it had never happened. “

    That’s probably the wisest course of action.
