It would seem that the Bible and Scriptures are very clear in what to do in many situations, but between what it says and what people actually do is a tragic gap. Let’s take what practices people within the church of gods use with the ministers of the church of gods.
The relationship was now a traumatic one, but Leona still had no intention of deserting her family. Nor was she lingering on for (what Allan Browne would later claim in court) a “free ride.” She started attending college again in 1974 to reestablish her nursing credentials. And when those were obtained in 1975 she found work at a local hospital. But then, a few weeks later in June, Raymond McNair did something no WCG evangelist had ever done. He filed for divorce.
Back in 2012, Dr Bob Thiel, vitamin salesman, pseudo intellectual, and false prophet was chastised by his guru, the late, not so great, Rodrick Meredith.
Meredith was trying to reason with Bob and correct his “know it all mentality.”
So what is this mentality Rodrick was talking about, and how do others view Thiel? Why did Rodrick write to the ministry that Thiel “has not been a reliable source of information in many cases.” ?
Let’s take a look at these letters. If your a member of Thiels troupe or are considering hitching your wagon too his, we suggest you read these letters carefully…
Qualifications of an Apostle
- An apostle as defined strictly by the New Testament, no longer exists today, since these three conditions had to be met:
- The person had to have been an eyewitness to Jesus after his resurrection (1 Corinthians 9:1);
- Had to have been chosen by the Holy Spirit (Acts 9:15);
- Had to have ministered with miraculous signs and wonders (Acts 2:43; 2 Corinthians 12:12).
A modern-day apostle would typically function as a church planter—one who is sent out by the body of Christ to spread the gospel and establish new communities of believers.
