Les McCullough stated his opposition to lowering operating reserves, and was joined by Leon Walker and Richard Thompson.
Doctrine Committee Chairman Leon Walker moderated the next portion of the meeting. He first reviewed a position paper on the subject of New Moons with the Council, indicating the Church's understanding that new moon observances are not required of New Testament Christians. The quorum of eleven unanimously approved the paper. Papers on two other subjects (the man of sin spoken of in 2 Thessalonians 2, and the 70 weeks prophecy of Daniel 9) have been submitted. Mr. Walker made some general observations on prophetic topics, citing these papers as cases in point. Prophecy, by its very nature (dealing with events that have not happened yet), lends itself to speculation and private interpretation. In past affiliations, we have all seen some prophetic subjects treated as if they were doctrine. Even if the speculation proved correct, it would not mean that we should elevate interpretations, especially speculative ones, to the status of doctrine. With this in mind, Mr. Walker asked for the Council's input on this question - how should the Church deal with honest differences in opinion on prophetic topics? Not every issue of prophecy will create this dilemma, he stated, but some will. Mr. Walker opened the floor for comments, since whatever approach is taken will be a Council decision. Leon Walker: "So you are advocating that we should allow different interpretations to be published, at least in certain publications? Leon Walker: "What would be the criteria for having alternate interpretations? Walker] mentioned freestanding papers showing alternative views. Leon Walker: "Obviously it would be wonderful if we could come down to an understanding of a prophetic issue and say 'we accept this one, this one is right, the others are wrong because of this or that.' But to be realistic, I think that there are some issues in prophecy where we agree to disagree. Leon Walker: "I think we should be honest, and say that there is ambiguity, rather than taking a dogmatic position when we cannot and should not do so." At this point, Mr. Walker asked for more direct input on what process should be followed for putting forward alternate views of prophetic subjects. Dr. Ward and Mr. Walker summarized the current process for dealing with proposed changes in doctrinal topics: Further discussion about the possibility of an official certificate for marriages performed by UCG pastors led to a vote of five opposed (Messrs. Dick, Kilough, Kubik, Thompson, and Walker); four in support (Messrs. Antion, Holladay, McCullough, Ward); and two abstaining (Mr. Dean and Mr. Seiglie).


Did the WCG leaders have a doctrinal agenda?

"I remember one time in the late '80s -- I don't recall the precise time -- Mike [Feazell, Mr. Tkach's assistant and considered by insiders to be one of the chief architects of the WCG's doctrinal changes] said, 'God doesn't have to have a thumb,'" Mr. Walker said.
Mr. Walker, who until April 1995 was the director of the WCG's Spanish work, was on the WCG's advisory council of elders at the time of Mr. Armstrong's death. Mr. Walker, a 1960 graduate of Ambassador College, has been an elder since 1963 and was ordained a WCG evangelist in 1981. He said that shortly before Mr. Armstrong's death the WCG pastor general was undecided about who to name as his successor. "One day he'd be leaning toward Mr. [Leroy] Neff [who died in 2014]. Another day he might be leaning toward someone else," Mr. Walker said.
