Would you consider this a fair statement? Older Church of God preachers often speak with a bitter tongue because they have believed to much, took too many passages of scripture literally when it was meant for other people in another time and expected too much from the denomination even though it was struggling?
The resultant disillusion has occurred so often that they have developed a bitter and cruel mockery of spirit.
I think of one dear brother that I met 12 years ago and saw him every week for 7 years, he was still getting a small stipend from the COG but said he couldn’t have made it except he met a woman after his first wife died and she had property and insurance money. Over the years I have met several like this, it leaves them unhappy and they cannot fit easily into a local church.
