The Sinking of the QE2
False Prophet Ronald Weinland was in Detroit yesterday. He let local associate elders give the prayers: Stan Watson did the opening and 20-something-son-of-Terry Parker Wrozek gave the closing. As I’ve pointed out several weeks ago, Weinland’s live audio feed has been distorted and scratchy recently because the bandwidth setting was a low 8 Kbps per second. Yesterday his geek Greg Chipps figured out the problem and reset it to a better quality setting of 16 Kbps – that is he either figured it out or he read my blog. So Ron, this is the feedback from the Internet you were looking for — it was better. But Ron did spend about 10 minutes at the beginning playing around with a problem with some type of electrical interference in his audio system. He blames static electricity due to the dry winter conditions, our technically challenged false prophet thinks that all static is caused by static electricity. To make up for the lost time, he ended about 10 minutes early. Ron, you really ought to prove out your equipment during the week instead of watching all that cable TV.
Ron has renamed his sermon series to “The Judgment of Thunder”. But he continued as last week to try to justify his prophecy from his usual authoritative sources. About 20 minutes were spent reading from the December Stansberry report. This is a newsletter written by Porter Stansberry, who was convicted of an SEC violation and paid a $1.5M fine back in 2007. Porter predicts a global economic crisis brought on by massive US deficits leading to the end of the dollar’s status as a reserve currency. Porter discussed how gasoline is more expensive in other countries, blaming it on them having to pay more for their oil because oil is priced in dollars and not their own currency. It has nothing to do with gasoline being taxed much more in these countries than in the US. Despite Porter’s fact distortion and checkered ethical history, the US and global economy will suffer in the coming years. But, as I pointed out last week, the economy could get really bad without Christ returning, whether on Pentecost of 2012 or any other time.
The US is like Pharaoh, with our hearts hardened after the end of the plagues. Ron is praying for the thunders to be stepped up mightily in the next few months. He did the same just over four years ago, in a 3-part sermon series entitled “God’s Church, An Overview“. For some reason, this sermon series is not posted on the PKG website, perhaps he’s afraid that he would be blamed for the unprecedented cataclysmic events that happened early in 2007. Then two years ago, PKG went through an unprecedented two-day fast during which they prayed for death and destruction to bring about the humbling of the US. Ron, please keep praying and calling fasts to call for calamity to befall us. While you’re at it, please toss out a few more death curses on your critics.
Last year, Ron discussed how Facebook, bikinis, and speedos would not be allowed in the Millennium. Turns out that we won’t have TV or movies either, and the bland entertainment of the Young Ambassadors won’t be allowed either. Sounds like a pretty boring time, if I’m lucky I’ll be killed when the Great Tribulation finally arrives. And what will Ron do without cable TV to watch?
Last week, Dill Weed talked about Dill Weed Jr’s banjo playing career and how it came to an end. This video has surfaced which gives the true story behind the end of DWJ’s musical career.
