False Prophet Ronald Weinland was a few minutes late getting started since the hall in Orlando needed to be rearranged. During the announcements, he mentioned Tyler, a child in New Mexico who is undergoing treatment for leukemia. I view it as a positive sign that he is being given qualified medical care and hope it works for him.
Ron made a point of not giving Tyler’s address as there supposedly are crackpots and weirdos out there who like to stir things up. That sort of thing does not happen on my blog. I have not published any of the addresses that have come my way, including that of the false apostle and has-been Elijah. In fact, I’m not aware that it has happened anywhere except for a couple of incidents in comments which were quickly deleted by the website management. So Ron, whom are you talking about?
During the sermon, he railed against mockers and critics, who seek to destroy Ron and his church with lies and deceit. Ron, I would like to see your false ministry end, but my means are to show the truth. As I’ve said before in an email to you which you probably deleted, if I’ve said something on my site that’s not truthful then tell me what it is so I can correct it. Rather, you impugn what I’m doing because you’re afraid that if more of your members read my site then even more will leave.
At the beginning of the sermon, Ron said it would be on the par of his sermons at the 2005 Feast of Tabernacles at which he presented his unique (at least among Armstrongites) doctrine on the origin of Christ. First he read part way through his blog posting, and then diverted to the new topic. After reading verses from Acts 8 and Acts 19 about the laying on of hands after baptism possible only by ordained ministers, he announced that there would be additional waves of elders. These would be termed as associate elders, whose job it will be to baptize the hordes of people wanting to join PKG due to the fulfillment of Ron’s prophecies, which although they didn’t happen when he said they would, they will eventually.
I speculated in my last post that the status of Laura would change. Its turns out that it has in an indirect fashion. Laura no longer is the only ordained female in PKG. It turns out that sleeping with an evangelist gives one spiritual qualities, as Angela (Ann) Wrozek and Myrtle Harrell were ordained by Ron as senior elders last week in Georgia. Then Ron called Wayne Matthews in Melbourne who then ordained his wife Christine (Chris) as the third senior elder. More men and women will be ordained as associate elders.
And Laura does have a new title. She no longer is a prophetess. She now is a prophet. Ron objects to the second-class status of women, although they still will not be able to speak during services.
Some of the sealed who are older and physically not capable of performing the baptism are ineligble to be ordained. Now this doesn’t quite make sense. If lay members can help in the dunking part, then all they have to really do is the laying-on-of-hands part. But why am I expecting anything Ron does to make sense.
But adding more elders including does make sense to me. It binds the ordained ones closer to Ron so they’ll continue to ignore the failure of Ron’s prophecies. Ron plans an elders conference in Cincinnati on February 27 for training. Ron promises more waves of ordination. And who knows? Maybe 20-something Tony Wilson who runs the HWA Compendium website will get to be an elder too.
Ron took time to rail against mockers and critics, who are trying to weaken the church with lies and deceit and who are being eaten up with cancer from the inside. Now that was his curse in his first timeline — Ron, you said 53 weeks ago that I was to die quickly from the inside.
