UCG’s New Council Members

Ruins of Ancient Laodicea


At UCG, apparently the votes are all in as Gavin Rumney posted the following:

The Word of the Lord may not be going forth from Zion exactly, but it is being trumpeted abroad via Twitter. This update from David Myers:

UCG’s new Council of Elders members are William Eddington (Int’l), Richard Thompson (returning), Scott Ashley, Melvin Rhodes.

As of this morning, UCG has not yet posted its Council of Elders’ Meeting minutes.  But of course, that is why some people are into Twitter.

Anyway, Scott Ashley, in my opinion, was long overdue for additional recognition at UCG, although I do not really know where he stands doctrinally.

Melvin Rhodes is an interesting choice because of his international experience and his writings.  I am more familiar with Peter (who I met), than one called William, Eddington at UCG.

We will see how, if at all, these new Council members affect the actual direction of UCG.

Differences between the Living Church of God and United Church of God This article provides quotes information from the two largest groups which had their origins in WCG as well as commentary.
Polycarp, Herbert W. Armstrong, and Roderick C. Meredith on Church Government What form of governance did the early church have? Was it hierarchical? Which form of governance would one expect to have in the Philadelphia remnant? The people decide and/or committee forms, odd dictatorships, or the same type that the Philadelphia era itself had?
Should a Christian Vote? This article gives some of the Biblical rationale on this subject. Would Jesus vote for president? Is voting in the Bible? This is a subject Christians need to understand.
6. The Philadelphia Church Era was predominant circa 1933 A.D. to 1986 A.D. The old Radio Church of God and old Worldwide Church of God, now basically the Living Church of God.
7. The Laodicean Church Era was predominant circa 1986 A.D. to present. Non-Philadelphians who mainly descended from the old WCG.
There are Many COGs: Why Support the Living Church of God? This is an article for those who wish to more easily sort out the different COGs. It really should be a MUST READ for current and former WCG members or any interested in supporting the faithful church. It also explains a lot of what the COGs are all about.
