“Take Action” is the name of False Prophet Ronald Weinland’s newest sermon series. The action he is discussing is a church-wide fast, but not anything Two-Witness like. There is a mention of heat — but not from fire emanating either from his mouth or the Silent Witness. Rather, it is a reference to the weather and that now PKG members are allowed to wear more casual clothes when coming before God.
In previous sermons, he has indicated that he will be going to Europe for the feast instead of Australia which he has done in the years 2008 through 2011. In 2012 he spent the feast in the basement of his mansion on the golf course wearing a GPS ankle bracelet because he had been convicted of criminal tax fraud and was awaiting sentencing. In 2013, 2014, and 2015 God placed his name on the Terre Haute Federal Correctional Institute where Ron was incarcerated. This year it seems that he can’t get a visa for New Zealand and Australia because of his conviction with other countries like Canada and the UK also unwilling to have him visit. No doubt he will soon exercise his Witness power to call down plagues on countries that reject him.
It’s been May since Ron posted on his blog, and April since my last post. The number of comments on that post has grown to over 300 so this one can be used to continue conversations.
On a personal note, I obviously have been much less involved with this blog although I do monitor what’s going on. I grew up in Armstrongism in the 60s while it was still called the Radio Church of God. I rejected Armstrongism before Herbie’s Great Tribulation failed to materialize in 1972. Since then I’ve led my on life including having a family and a successful technical career. I began blogging in 2008 before the first time Ron’s Great Tribulation failed to start. This has been an opportunity for me to work through my own personal experiences in Armstrongism and have decided to focus on other things. I will keep the blog open, and continue to monitor things. If Ron does something Witness-like I would start up again unless that Witness-like thing is the enforcement of the death curse he issued twice in 2008.
