Tkach, Meredith, GTA, Flurry, Hulme.... Disfellowshipped!
To Be Announced Only If Necessary
(It is necessary)
In accordance with the biblical commands, the doctrine and long-standing practices of the church, (based somewhat on I Corinthians 5:5, where Paul admonishes us to "hand the sexually immoral man over to Satan so that the sinful nature may be destroyed and his spirit saved on the day of the Lord.") we are sometimes required to notify you that certain people have been disfellowshipped. It is our unpleasant duty at this time to notify you that Joseph Tkach Jr., Roderick Meredith, Garner Ted Armstrong, David Hulme, Gerald Flurry and all their Mirmydon minions, some of them listed to the right, have been disfellowshipped. These former members, who have signified below, do not, and you should not, bear any ill will toward these so-called, self-styled, self-ordained church leaders. (They have basically ordained one another, and that is so appropriate since they all descend from the incestuous and corrupt founder, Herbert W. Armstrong.)
Rather, you should pray that God will grant them repentance and pray that God will deal with them according to their works.
Since most of us have been unable to obtain the honor of being disfellowshipped from the Worldwide Church of God, the list of names below are of those who wish to disfellowship Joseph Tkach Jr. and all ministers of the Worldwide Church of God and its many daughters from any fellowship with people who can think for themselves. Tkach and his minions are condemned to only have contact with those who are just as blind as they are. They are sentenced for the rest of their lives to wander blind in their own delusion that they could possibly represent and speak for the God of creation.
Too bad that they will be able to continue to steal money from and ruin the lives of gullible people. But, I guess that is just part of God's great work. And, since they have accepted Jesus, they are free to rape and pillage all they want because they are under grace. Christianity is such a great religion for the believers. Of course, the unbelievers, no matter how much more good they have done in their lives, are condemned to eternal death. Too bad.
So many members have been disfellowshipped by Tkach's church in the past; probably numbering in the thousands. Many of these people wear this branding and marking as a badge of honor but some, I'm sure, have led troubled lives, (some have written to this Website), thinking that they have really been tossed out of the only true church and that they have lost any hope of being in any Afterlife other than The Lake of Fire.
Tkach cares not a bit for any of these people whom his church has damaged. If you are troubled by what was done to you by the Worldwide Church of God, Tkach advises you to go get counseling or psychiatric care. He, of course, does not offer to pay for healing any of the damages inflicted by his beloved church. He recommends you get help from your present fellowship, from your health insurance or from some welfare agency. You see, he is just too busy with Jesus' work of making money to help anyone other than himself and his cronies. He won't even use any of the money that his church blackmailed out of you to help you because he needs it for his and his minion's retirement and Empire building ala "Plain Truth Ministries" which is a separate entity from the Worldwide Church of God. It is an amazing thing to see the hypocrisy of these "representatives of Jesus." I wonder what God thinks of them? Almost gives credence to the belief that there is no God because, if there were a God, you would think that He would deal with people who misrepresent Him to the hurt and even deaths of others.
I know there are some good guys on the list to the right. (If you think you are one of the "good guys," you probably aren't.) But they are associated with these churches, they preach the party line, they derive power from them and they support them as loyal Mirmydons along with the "bad" ones. I'm sorry, that is all it takes to get disfellowshipped from being able to associate with people that can think for themselves.
If there is anyone on the list who has genuinely repented and left the ministry altogether, I will take him off the list. That is the only sign that I will accept as true repentance. Give up the money. Give up the power. Get out of the God-Pimping business. If anyone knows of such former ministers, I will gladly remove their names. They can even sign the Ministerial Apology Page to signify their repentance.
Of course, when we disfellowship them, it is all in jest and just to make fun of them and show that we hold them as contemptible; that we do not recognize any authority that they may think they have in their religious delusion.
But when they do it to us, they are very serious and truly believe (at least they pretend they do for the benefit of and for the frightening of their sheep) they are turning us over to Satan for chastisement.
Please send along any names of the "ministers" that should be added to the list to the right. I know that I don't have them all.
THE BIG GUYS:
Joseph Tkach Jr.
Garner Ted Armstrong
