An Anniversary Message
A Thank You
John W. Ritenbaugh
Commentary; #1027c; 11 minutes
John Ritenbaugh, affirming that our future involves immersion in both religion and government, suggests that the church may be the most important teaching vehicle for getting us ready for leadership in God's Kingdom. All the sermons, commentaries, and Bible studies have been crafted to assist us in preparing for these leadership roles. The hierarchical structure involving ministerial control extant in the WCG is completely absent in the CGG. The emphasis in the Church of God is on self-control and self-government, responsible only to God. Each person must individually demonstrate his allegiance to God without any kind of ministerial control. Coerced behavior does not develop character, self-control, or responsibility. It would be well on the anniversary of the Church of the Great God to re-read Preparing the Bride.
