Moving Mountains

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

Last night was the beginning of the Days of Unleavened Bread and also the Night to be Much Observed.  When I was growing up in RCG/WCG, small groups would get together to share a meal in a member’s home.  Seems that also has changed in the CoGs including within PKG as per a comment left on the Purple Hymnal blog about how Johnny observes it.

False Prophet Ronald Weinland has recorded his high day sermon and is heading over to Australia.  He must have a lot on his mind because he didn’t issue a reminder for holy day special offerings as he usually does.  Perhaps Audra’s testimony is occupying his thoughts these days.

He also announce that after Saturday’s services he had ordained 4 more people in New Zealand.  On Jan 9, he indicated that I was doing them a favor by publishing the first and last names of elders even though he only gave first names.  Looks like Ron really didn’t mean that and doesn’t appreciate my efforts, because he didn’t give even the first names of the four new elders.  With Adrian Gray and the 4 new elders, New Zealand probably now has a higher percentage of elders than does the already high percentage of the rest of PKG.

Ron took some time to address his critics, at 27 minutes into this week’s version of the recording on the PKG website:

I think about people out there who torment themselves listening to me sabbath by sabbath, holy day to holy day.  For no other purpose than to find something wrong.  To find some fault so they can bla bla bla  and they don’t get it, they don’t understand what’s being said….  Those who seek to find fault will always find fault.  They’ll always find something negative and wrong or something to twist and distort, just a little bit.

Well, Ron makes it so easy.  About the ability to find fault. I don’t have to get picky to find fault with what he says.  He puts both feet in and chews on them.  No need to twist and distort.  He is correct about the torment — his sermons are tormenting to listen to.  The only way I can maintain my sanity is to tune out most of his blather, a skill I learned while warming the hard metal folding chair enduring one of False Prophet Herbert Armstrong’s 4-hour Last Great Day sermons.

Later on in his sermon,  Ron was reading from Mark 11:20-24 about faith being able to move mountains.  At 1 hour 46 minutes he followed up these verses with:

But what do you believe?  What is the purpose behind it?  This is a little bit of what I’m trying to convey of recent time about Two Witnesses and what happened.  What happens in certain prophecy in Revelation.  Because the vast majority of those things don’t happen till toward the end. Just as in Christ’s ministry here.  In his period of his ministry, the things that happened on the last few days were immense, indeed.

And so it is in this age we live in right now.   There are going to be things that are reserved toward the end. Because I am who I know I am doesn’t mean I can go out here and ask God and tell God, or say – I wouldn’t do it unless I know and I won’t know until God let’s me know.  When it agrees with God and when it agrees with God’s will.  There are certain things you don’t do in life, unless you know it’s God’s will and God’s purpose.  And so it was with Christ, so it is with all of us, and what we pray about.  You must know something is a matter of God’s will and in agreement with God and then you can pray about it with boldness. In faith.

It’s not a matter of just asking whimsically God to do certain things.  [sarcastically] That if somehow you can whip it up enough – “I’m going to work up this faith and I’m going to ask: Mountain be moved.   And cast into the sea”  And all of a sudden you it plop off the top and take it – I won’t tell you what you’d probably do if you saw that – ‘your loins would be loosed’ is the expression in the old testament.

But see, who is going to do that?  I can tell you who would do it.  Some nutcase, some whacko, some weirdo. Unless you know it’s from God and God’s purpose.  And how can you know that?  If something is written in here and you know it  and you know the timing of it and what the purpose is.  Yes. If you’re at one with God, if there’s a unity and oneness with God here in your life, that he gives it to you, in some sort of way, whatever way that he works with every one of us in life.  Then so be it.  But belief is a matter of faith and how God works in your life and what he’s doing with your life and what his will is.  It doesn’t mean that you go and ask for certain things that aren’t a part of his will.

So Ron, let me ask you this:  Was it God’s will that the thunders would increase in January of 2007 after you asked him to do so in December of 2006?  Was it God’s will that Roderick Meredith, Richard Ames, Gerald Flurry, David Pack, and John Ritebaugh die in response to the curse you placed on them after they ignored the letters you sent them?  Or did they ignore you?  Come on Ron, you’re big on history.  How about posting a copy of the letters you sent them and their responses, if any?

Was it God’s will that “nukular” explosions occur in US port cites in response to your prophesies?

Or did your blather in the sermon only apply to mountains and lottery tickets? Inquiring minds want to know.  And what about Revelation 11:6? Which states:

These [the Two Witnesses] have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

The Bible says the Two Witnesses don’t have to wait for an indication of God’s will.  Was it God’s will that caused me to die speedily after you cursed me with death 66 weeks ago? During the first part of your latest sermon after talking about how you were tormenting me, you said:

And that blows my mind, about human nature. And how much human beings will fight against God, and the word of God, and God’s prophets and  God’s teachers.  That’s the way it is.  So if they want to live in misery, I tell them “Go ahead and live in misery. Torment yourself.  Have at it.  I feel sorry for you.  It’s pathetic what you’re doing.

And you’re going to pay for it.’  Some tried to mock and said ‘I hadn’t paid for it yet, I’m still alive’  ….. because it doesn’t happen immediately … some things don’t happen immediately,  … people can say….‘God’s not going to punish me’   Oh, yeah.  Everyone will be judged, in God’s time.  Incredible.

Yes, Ron — I’m going to die.  Just not when and how you said.  And you’re going to die too.  Just not when and how you said, during May of 2012 on the streets of Jerusalem.  That is unless your Jerusalem Syndrome is worse than I thought and you and Laura buy your own airline tickets to Israel and do yourself in.  But wait, that won’t work either — the “beast power” has to do you in.  How will you make that happen?  Spiritually is what history suggests.

Note: in the last episode of “The Simpsons” available for viewing online,  Homer’s goofy neighbor Ned Flanders persuades Homer to travel to the “holy land” where he acquires Jerusalem Syndrome.

Ron’s Worldwide Passover

Sunday, March 28th, 2010

False Prophet Ronald Weinland made an appearance this weekend from New Zealand.  Despite a late start, he continued on past two hours.  Perhaps he was refreshed by taking last weekend off from prophesying on the beaches of Hawaii.

The sermon more or less followed the Armstrongite theme around the Passover season.  He touched on prophesy a little bit, continuing to delay expectations for the great tribulation and for evidence that he has Witness Powers up until the very end, just before Christ doesn’t return on Pentecost of 2012.  This sermon series is to continue on Tuesday which is the first high day of the Jewish year and the Days of Unleavened bread.  Tonight (Sunday evening) is the foot-washing ceremony in observance of Passover, which has already taken place in Australia.

Although the prophesying was kept to a minimum, Ron indicated that he would be returning to the southwestern hemisphere for the Feast of Tabernacles just as he has for the past two years.  That is if the great tribulation doesn’t strike before then.  Newsflash!!  Ron will be in New Zealand for the Feast, that is unless something stops him such as his passport being lifted by the IRS or a repeat of his 2005 heart attack.

Weinland’s Sixth Thunder of the Sixth Seal

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

False Prophet Ronald Weinland chose himself to reveal the 7 thunders of Revelation 10 that was not revealed to John in his hallucinogenic dream. In his book “2008 God’s Final Witness” Weinland described the 6th of those thunders as

The Sixth Thunder is the growing revelation of God’s end-time witnesses. That revelation is that I am the spokesman of God’s two end-time prophets—the spokesman of His two end-time witnesses.

This thunder will grow louder as the events described in the previous thunders continue to unfold with ever increasing intensity, proving the validity of what has been written and that what I am saying is true. Radio and television interviews will become more the norm as curiosity, news, controversy, and fear increase in proportion to the growing intensity of these thunders.

The last radio interview available on the web was on March 6 of last year, and there have been two reported by Weinland since but these were in local markets and podcasts are not available. The one and only television interview of Weinland was recorded in January of 2008 and has aired only on Australian TV. Weinland expected that the interview that was recorded would be played back after April of 2008 to prove that he had prophesied all the disasters that unfolded. “Interview” should be in quotes because the program consisted of maybe 20% sound bytes of Weinland and the rest criticism of his apocalyptic mind view. The program first aired in November of 2008, and then again as a repeat a few months ago.

When it comes to print media, I turned to Google News for recent publications. It currently has links to this article and this other one. But these are not news articles but rather are spoofs on “The Spoof” website. I found them mildly amusing, but don’t come close to the spoofs written by Kirrily in comments on this website 1 2.  Sometimes you have to have been there 🙁  There were some other articles a few months earlier in traditional print media, but these also were of the type that pointed out failed apocalyptic prophesies.

Google also sheds more light on the growing recognition of Ronald Weinland with its Google Trends service. Here is a chart of web search history for “ronald weinland”

google_trends_rwThe start of search activity on Ron coincides with the Google advertising campaign that Ron’s followers paid for that intensified right after the Feast of Tabernacles of 2007.  The peak is right around the start of the first Great Tribulation on April 17, 2008.  After that, Google search interest decreased as his prophecies failed and did not return even with a renewed Google ad campaign later in 2008.  So much for the following prophecy from “2008 GFW”:

The growing manifestation of proof that I am God’s end-time prophet and that I am the spokesman of His two end-time witnesses is a thunder that will become powerfully stronger all the way up until the very return of Jesus Christ.

Weinland’s book was published November of 2006.  Interest peaked in April of 2008 and since has waned.  And there has been no growing manifestation of proof that Ron is spokesman of the two end-time witnesses.  But there has been a growing manifestation of proof that he is a false prophet.  And every post that I make as such, as I disprove the only exercise of his Witness powers which was to place a curse on me to speedily die from the inside.

799 Days

Wayne Matthews

Wayne Matthews

Where in the world is False Prophet Ronald Weinland?  He’s a no-show this weekend, with Deputy Sheriff Wayne Matthews filling in for the sermon.  Has Ron been scooped up by the IRS yet?   Probably not, I expect we’ll have to wait awhile longer for that.  I think it more likely that Ron is lolling about a Hawaiian beach on the way to Australia and New Zealand for the feast of matzo bread starting in just over a week.

Wayne’s sermon seems to have been recorded at his home, which must be on a busy street near an intersection as heavy vehicles can be heard in the background with their motors laboring under acceleration.  I wonder if Wayne makes wife and Senior Elder Christine cower in the bathroom as Ron has required Laura to do in the past when he gave sermons from a hotel room.

Wayne’s sermon was less intense than some he’s given in the past.  There wasn’t a rant about how PKG is the only true church and that Ron and Laura are indeed the Two Witnesses.  I hope that’s an indication that Wayne’s starting to wean himself from Ron’s Flavor Aid. I wonder if Wayne has found employment to replace that which he gave up when he broke his pitcher two years ago.

Wayne went on about the “stones of the temple” which is a prophetic metaphor for those who are “the 144,000” who were re-sealed on the Feast of Trumpet of 2008 and will be converted to god beings at sundown preceding May 27, 2012 when Christ returns (mid-day on the 26th for those in US timezones) which is about 799 days from now according to Wayne’s count.  Others who don’t understand “God’s” plan haven’t been called and “stumble by design”.  Wayne cautioned the brethren to not lift themselves up against those who’ve not been called yet.  Like Ron has done against me and others.  Have I committed the unpardonable sin, despite being set up by Ron’s God to fail?  Is Ron’s death sentence against me fully justified, or do I still have a chance that I won’t die as a result of the speedy death curse against me issued by God’s End-Time Spokesman Witness and Fulfillment of the Elijah-to-Come some 65 weeks ago?  Inquiring minds want to know.

Vile Spirits

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

The Weinland Witness blog was started by Citizen X a couple of years ago shortly after the first time the first trumpet blew.  About a year ago, Citizen X declared Weinland to be a false prophet when there were no “nukular” explosions within 90 days after the second time the first trumpet blew.

A couple of months ago “Aaron Robinson” started contributing to that blog, and has continued Citizen X’s “rabid Weinland haters” type of rhetoric against people who mock False Prophet Ronald Weinland as do I.

I’m responding to some comments that Aaron made on his blog, so the rest of this is addressed to him:

Aaron, I noticed that you’ve returned to your blog, and I have some questions about some comments you made in the last couple of days.  I’d post my response to your blog, except that Citizen X would delete them.  You said:

  • This is one thing that I don’t like about the true Weinland haters …, when they denounce anything and everything that Mr. Weinland says or does,
  • Which brings me to another point, because they are so very Hell-bent on tearing on down Mr. Weinland at any and all costs,

Who are “they“, exactly?  Come on, name names.   If you say that “they” (meaning I) denounce everything that Weinland says or does, be prepared to defend that.

And the statement that “they” (meaning I) am so very Hell-bent on tearing down Weinland at any and all costs.  What exactly does that mean?  That I have no boundaries?  If that were true, then it would be amazing that I haven’t taken my 9 mm pistol and at all costs tested Weinland’s Witness Protection Powers, because I obviously know where he lives.

And regarding my alleged destructive tendencies, you said:

  • They have a spirit of trying to destroy somebody because they don’t agree with them, even if they are affecting people’s lives.
  • … vile spirit that seek to destroy people just because they don’t agree with them

Whom have I sought to destroy just for not agreeing with me?  You obviously don’t agree with me.  Have I sought to destroy you?  Be specific.  Whom exactly have I tried to destroy?  Whose lives am I affecting, and please, no more garbage about my abusing Greg’s children.  It’s Greg who is abusing his children by not supporting them.

When it comes to my blogging about Weinland’s elders, I have demonstrated restraint in posting about them.  Being elders, they are prime examples of Weinland’s effects on his followers.  And as elders should be held to the higher standards mentioned in 1Timothy 3.  FYI, I’m working on yet another elder story I plan to post soon.

And then this statement from you:

I’m glad that most of you on here {on your blog post} don’t share this same vile spirit that seek to destroy people just because they don’t agree with them or because they think that they are liars, because if they really believe in God, Jesus Christ, and the Bible, then there is no excuse to be mean, angry, vile, hostile, scoffing, mocking, ridiculing in any manner towars any other human-being upon this planet Earth, because that goes so very much against what Jesus Christ taught about loving.

Let’s view that statement in light of statements that Weinland has made:

On April 19, 2008 (at 9 minutes into the sermon MP3 on the PKG website), Weinland spouted off:

For those who want to mock, I do forewarn you, you’re going to cease, or you will die. You see, I have a unique job and you just don’t understand what that job is.  So you just don’t understand, you don’t know  the power of God, and what he has given to me to do.  I have a job and God has molded and fashioned me and prepared me with the boldness and the strength and the confidence to do this job.

And my first exercise in use of power that God has granted me in Revelation 11 is to you – you mockers.  To you who mock and ridicule God and his prophets. Truly.  It begins with you, first and foremost. You will be the first to experience some of the things that begin to take place. You don’t have to wait long. For those who mock, again,  from this day forward, by what you say against God’s people, by what you say against the truths of God, by what you say against God’s prophets. You will suffer from sickness that will eat you from the inside out, and you will die. Your death will not be quick.

And on Dec 20, 2008 (at 1 hour 19 minutes into the sermon MP3 on the PKG website), Weinland recursed:

Just like I mentioned back in April, in a sermon.  I had a couple people write, make comment, to let me know that they’re in good health.– but they’re still mocking.  I shake my head a little bit., and I think  – you don’t know what you’re saying.  You don’t know what you’re messing with. So I’m going to say the same thing I said back then, except stronger now, that those individuals who do those kinds of things

Those are the ones who God is going to begin working with early on, the mockers, the scorners, those who hate God.  They’re the ones who are going to lose out on what God is offering.  But not only that, as an example of certain things, because God is going to bring an end to this age, and because of the job he’s going to do even through me, that I certainly call upon those individuals to begin having those very problems I mentioned earlier on.  To die from within.   And not slowly now – speedily.  And there’s only one hope that you have, and that is repentance, and to place yourself at the mercy seat of God.  You know when things begin to happen to people, and things they go through — that’s what all must do.  When different things come on this earth.  You know if people will go before God and ask for God’s mercy, that is your hope.  It doesn’t mean that God’s going to answer you.  It depends on your spirit and your attitude.  And I’m speaking to people who are not a part of the church, but people who like to listen from time to time, and like to mock and make fun.  Well your time is up now.

And God will reveal things to you in a harsh way, because of your spirit and because of your attitude.  And far greater things than these are going to begin happening.  But again, it is beginning.   …. But unlike April, the job has now begun.

So you’re ready to accuse me and other critics of Weinland of being vile.  But not a mention of Weinland who actually attempted to kill me — if he really believes he is a Witness, then he sought to kill me.  Rather vile of him.  And rather hypocritical of you to ignore it.

You criticize my criticism of Weinland’s elders.  Yet you don’t criticize Weinland’s death attempt against elders of competing CoGs.  Being a fan of Weinland, you are well acquainted with the first phase of the Fifth Thunder, right?  Where’s the love there?  And since it’s over 3 years since the publication of his book, where’s the fulfillment of what he self-described as something that would prove him as a prophet?

Let’s review the definition for “vile”: “morally debased, depraved, or despicable”.  Clearly describes Weinland’s death curse on me and his mockers.  Clearly describes Weinland’s Total Resolve Cruise when he’d asked his followers to turn over their live savings.  You spout off about how we should love others, how about turning that rhetoric on Weinland?

“Vile” does not describe what Weinland’s mockers and critics have done.  None have made threats toward Weinland’s health and safety.  While I’ve published pictures of Weinland’s house so people can see how he lives, I’ve not published his address so that people could know where he lives.

So Aaron, here’s your chance to explain yourself and your hypocrisy.  I don’t arbitrarily delete comments just because I don’t agree with their content as does Citizen X.  But please stay on topic, don’t dump your entire pail of lame arguments about every aspect of Weinland.  And be brief — I know it will be difficult for you, but please try.  How about starting out with a discussion of Ron’s demonstration of love toward his enemies.

More Acts to Follow

Sunday, March 14th, 2010

False Prophet Ronald Weinland spoke from Columbia MO today.  His elder Shawn Christal apparently has figured out how to pray properly for proper functioning of the Internets as there were none of the glitches experienced on past visits.  And we got to hear Speedy Sam stumble through the closing prayer.

Ron has done some plotting and planning to stretch things out.  Ron is still singing the same song about the 2nd trumpet that he was singing on Mike McConnell’s show just over a year ago — we might not have “nukular” explosions for another year, or even longer.  A number of 45-90 day periods since the first trumpet blew for the second time on Dec 14, 2008, and more to go.

030503-N-6197C-002The baptism ceremony has been modified so that it can be done mass production style.  Under the old ceremony, the inductee is pushed under the water by the officiating elder (Ron stays on the side of the pool) and then after coming back up the elder lays hand on the inductee and prays.

In order to allow 100 elders or so to baptize hundreds of thousands of people, or even millions, the baptism ceremony is modified.  One elder will be able to baptize dozens of people at once, as the inductees will immerse themselves as the elder calls out synchronized dunking.  After which, instead of providing individual attention by actually laying hands on the inductee during the prayer,  the elder will pray over the group and then have them walk by so he/she can tap them on the head.  Reminds me of my first day of military service.

Ron has reviewed the validity of baptisms performed in other groups outside of PKG.  According to his new rules, any baptism will be invalid which was performed by any other group after Pentecost of 1998 when the church was reorganized with Elijah-to-come Ron leading it.  The only groups performing valid baptisms before that date would be the United Church of God and the Global Church of God, and WCG prior to the abomination of desolation on Dec 17, 1994.  For those unfamiliar with these organizations, UCG was formed by ministers who left WCG after Tkach’s apostasy of 1994 and Weinland was in UCG until May of 1997.  Global CoG was formed by Rod Meredith prior to Tkach’s apostasy — Global is now defunct as it went down the tubes after Rod Meredith abandoned it and its debts in a power struggle taking most of the members with him into the Living CoG.  In a moment of irony, Weinland stated that Flurry’s Philadelphia CoG was invalid because it is headed by a false prophet.  Gee Ron, how do we know that what Flurry has prophesied is false?  Maybe it’s true, but just hasn’t happened yet, huh?

According to Ron, the book of Acts is not complete as it will need to be expanded to record events within PKG.  He said that the ranks of the elders would swell to 700 eventually as some of those baptized within WCG prior to the opening of the first seal on Dec 17, 1994 join Ron’s church.  People of that pedigree would be eligible to become elders.

It looks like Ron has mined out those with a doomer mindset that can be sucked in with an expensive Google Ads campaign, and is now looking to “the scattering” for fresh meat.  Ron, don’t count your chickens before they hatch.  I pointed out to my mother, who having been baptized in WCG well before 1994 is quite eligible, that she could be ordained an elder.  Her reaction was somewhat south of enthusiastic. Ron, not everyone is impressed by the signs and lying wonders of the Son of Perdition.

All this baptizing will be going on while the US conquered by the beast power, and Ron will be in Europe interceding with the beast to allow his followers to keep the sabbath. Next he’ll be calling himself Moses. “Let my people go!!” (Ron, let your people go.) I wonder if Ron’s exit will be advanced should the IRS put a case together soon.  Ron’s Witness powers are not to be used for trivial things like proving that he actually is a prophet of God.  But they can be used for issuing curses against mockers like myself for a speedy death.  Which I must have experienced shortly after he issued his sentence on me 64 weeks ago, because after all Ron is a true prophet of the God of Abraham.

The Radio Church of Ron

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

Over the past several years, False Prophet Ronald Weinland has conducted a number of interviews on single-market talk shows to promote his books.  He had an interview a few weeks ago, but refuses to post an audio of it claiming that it’s boring. (Ron, I don’t mind — listening to your sermon last Saturday was the epitome of boring).  He also was interviewed on Toronto radio as part of promoting his appearance at Moses Znaimer’s ideaCity last June, but no audio of this is available either.

The last interview audio of Weinland available on the Internet was conducted over a year ago, on March 6, 2009 on WLW’s Mike McConnell radio program.  It is available as an 18 MB MP3 download from the WLW website.

At about 4 minutes into the interview, we have this exchange:

Mike: What happened December 14th? (of 2008)
Ron: December 14th was when the first trumpet of the last 7 trumpets was blown.  There are 7 trumpets that are going to be blown, the second one is when nukular devices will go off in this country.  And even back then, just before April I told you in that particular interview that we would have a period of about 45 to 90 days.  That also has changed.  That has been extended to possibly up to a year.  It’s going to depend upon how people respond this year. …. We have a period of time in this country, we are going down the tubes.

Then about 14 minutes later at the end of the interview, Ron started backpedaling when Mike set out to confirm this — which is fast even for RRonLauraon.

Mike: When’s the next event that I can look for that might fall into line with your belief system here?
Ron: Well, it’ll be nukular weapons going off here in major cities in the United States.
Mike: Within a year.
Ron: I’m not going to give you a time frame.
Mike: You said God might give us as much as a year.
Ron:  That’s right.  He might give you as much as a year.  He might give you a little bit more.  It depends on your response.

Mike McConnell did respond to Ron, and we must all thank him because due to his response, God gave us a little bit more than a year, so far.  And I suspect he’ll give us even more.

So Sunday was the expiration of yet another prophecy.  And last month was the refailure of yet another.  In his book, Weinland prophesied the downfall of the US no later than June 21 of last year (6 months after the fall season of 2008).  Later Weinland stated that the 8-month delay of his 1335-day timeline from Feb 2 until Sept 30, 2008 changed everything.  Eight months after June 21, 2009, actually 241 days later, was Feb 17, just a few weeks ago.

Are there any readers who live in the Cincinnati area who could call in and suggest to Mike that he have Weinland back on to talk about his prophecies? (WLW contact page).  Maybe Mike could discuss some of Ron’s extra-curricular activities and new titles with him.

The Divided Race of Islam

Saturday, March 6th, 2010

ffinnFalse Prophet Ronald Weinland was in Lubbock today.  Last time he was there, long time members from the local area George Bobo and Wilburn Maeker gave the prayers.  Perhaps they weren’t available for some reason as Ronnie imported Steve Blair from the Dallas area and Ralph Dowd from Cincinnati to give the prayers.  Have George and Wilburn figured out that they were following a false prophet?  I rather expect that unfortunately there’s another explanation.

PDFs of Ron’s publication Newswatch are available for download from the church website’s publication page.  PDFs are also available from this website, follow the “Sermons” link at the top of the page and then look at the bottom of the page.  The difference is that the copies on this website are scans of the publication as originally published including the original banners, and therefore include the original text, while the copies on the PKG website are reformatted.  Since Ron has had sermons revised in the past, it wouldn’t surprise me to find that there are a few revisions to the articles as published on the PKG website in addition to the format changes.

Is there now an eleventh commandment? Thou Shalt Not Throw Paper Towels on the Floor.  And perhaps an upcoming twelfth commandment?  Thou Shalt Not Leave the Toilet Seat Up?

Ron is revising the baptism ceremony.  Given all the other revisions he’s made, it will be interesting to see what they are —  maybe dunking is no longer required and a sprinkle will do. 😀

Ron talked about the race [sic] that’s divided between Sunni and Shia and the strife between the two factions.  He could instead have used Armstrongism which is now divided into hundreds of factions.  The leader of one of the Armstrongite factions has even written a book calling for the deaths of other faction leaders.  Which Armstrongite leader, you ask?  There are pictures of him and the Mrs somewhere on this website.

The same Armstrongite faction leader called for my death 63 weeks ago.  But that was the second time — the first time he called for my death was 98 weeks ago.  These occasions were the first sabbaths of his prophetic timelines, so I expect he’ll be calling for my death yet again on the first sabbath of his third timeline.
