And, as any fair minded person will probably agree, the redesign is effective. Too bad about the content!
Take, for example, these remarks from Rod:
God commands His true servants, “Cry aloud, spare not; lift up your voice like a trumpet; tell My people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins. Yet they seek Me daily, and delight to know My ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and did not forsake the ordinance of their God. They ask of Me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching God” (Isaiah 58:1–2).
The Creator God commands His true ministers to “cry aloud!” How many actually have the courage and commitment to do this? Very few, indeed!How about those nice people at Westboro Baptist Church? They seem pretty free with their opinions. Indeed, might Rod's Living Church of God be perhaps described as Westboro Lite? I suppose it's useless pointing out that the quote from Isaiah has to be read in the context of a specific audience at a particular time in history. But then, hey, when has Rod ever preached a Bible passage in context?
Then there's an article cautioning readers to shun obelisks - I kid you not.
But pride of place goes to the cover article which offers profound commentary on the election of Pope Francis. Will he be the last pope before Christ's return? Wouldn't you know it, Rod even uses the old chestnut "Prophecy Marches On!" in his editorial.
Yes, it's a remarkable issue, though not perhaps for the reasons Rod might think. Nice look, but about as useful as putting lipstick on a pig.
