I was born in 1974, five years after Walter White, the apostle, passed away. I never heard or was taught by my parents who he was or what baptism was for, and why only the old ones needed baptism, and not us children. Or from all the friends my dad and mom had. He was not talked about or what he stood for. Except by one man!
Finally I grew up and realized. Tom Nichols was a man who lived it and talked it for the last 30 years and everyone passed it off like it was nothing. I finally realized this when I read his letter. He never could have made up 36 pages of what Walter preached and stood for, what Tom Nichols wrote down.
I never heard or saw any man in this church question him on these things he told that had happened in this church. From 30 years ago up till now. I have realized that all of the ones who are baptized are self-righteous and self-centered and let me and all the ones who are not baptized be cheated out of a preacher, so we could be baptized and gain eternal life too.
Let me tell you this: I believe that my parents and their friends and all the ones who are baptized will have to pay a price for allowing this kind of doctrine to take over in the church. Before I told you I was born five years after Walter died. I am now 24 years old. Let me tell you all I was told of those five elders and their doctrine loud and strong by my parents and friends and all the ones who are baptized. But not what Walter believed and preached to all of them in this church.
Then in 1986, the last elder died, Glenford Lee. Believe you me, the still believe in his doctrine. Strong and he has been dead for 12 years. So for the last 24 years it has been the elders and now the elected and blessed five brethren. They were elected when I was only 12 years old. I grew up believing they were the elders or blessed by the last elder, Glenford Lee. Now at the last meeting of the men, I was told something different. After 12 years of believing that Glenford blessed and picked S.Z., R.R., and L.K. for the job. R.R., S.Z., and D.M. said that it was different.
It was said that D.M. picked one, S.B. picked one, Glenford Lee picked one. I believe that we all believed this and it was a lie because at first 12 years ago, we were told only Gelnford picked all three. What kind of religion is this lie?
All along while I was 12 years old up until I grew up and got married I, in my heart and mind, saw these five men take care of everything – set bones, anoint, lay hands, and go out to sick people’s houses all hours. Marry kids like me and others. What else would you old men and old women who are baptized want us unbaptized people to believe?
You did not tell us the truth all these past 30 years and up till now still lying to all of us. Now the last meeting of the men, July 1998. Now get this: some of us young men told Tom Nichols not to ask any questions. Because us young men were going to ask questions. We got scared and did not ask our question but believe you me, J.S. (an older baptized man) stood up and asked what about a preacher and talking of one. People whispered and talked and said out loud bold that J.S. what out of order and sit down.
B.C. said, “Sit down.” M.W., who is not baptized, said, “Sit down and shut up,” like an impudent ass. J.S. told M.W. to shut up which most of us young men were happy about.
To make a point on these five elected brethren, big exalted K.K. stood up and said, “Why don’t you teach and tell these young men who these men are? Where and what they do in the church. So the young men would be able to understand.” Remember, I grew up from 12 years old till now at 24 years old and I was utterly confused when K.K. got through with his speech.
Just like K.K.’s boys do everything daddy says and just like D.W. and his boys, they do everything daddy says. And just like K.K. in his speech would look at D.W. and made sure that what he was saying was okay by D.W.
Why couldn’t they get up and teach and talk to us young men how to seek God and get a preacher instead of how to believe and understand these five elected men? I believe the old men and the old women in this church think God won’t do anything to their 24 year old and down to 1-year-old grandchildren because I hear out of their mouths, Grandpa and Grandma won’t let God or anyone like Tom Nichols wrote about hurt or harm any of you.
So old men and old women sit in church and sing 10 songs, 50 songs a month and say how good we are. I did hear Tom Nichols say after D.W. said wait on God and continue in sin so grace may abound. To what J.S. said, we do need a preacher.
