Wooded Hills Church in Colgate, Wisconsin outside Milwaukee met in person this morning. And in a vibrant testimony of their love of Jesus and with elderly present masks were ignored and social distancing also appears to be ignored. This blog would like to know if Theo Williams going to follow Joe Jenkins lead and try and raise someone from the dead amidst a pandemic?
“Even small cults are a serious cost on the world economy, to victims, their families, employers, friends, and credit-card companies.”
When he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out.” 44 The man who had died came out, his hands and feet bound with linen strips, and his face wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Unbind him, and let him go.”
John 11:43-44 ESV
Screen shot of a service at Wooded Hills in Colgate, Wisconsin on May 24, 2020
Wooded Hills church met this morning in person and in a beautiful testimony to their love of Jesus it doesn’t appear as if social distancing was followed. Look at the screen shot I took above. The chairs and rows are just as organized as when I drank the Kool Aid and called Wooded Hills home. With elderly people present there appears to be no following of social distancing. I only see one person in that photo wearing a mask. Its the person in the last row. In the live stream I had heard two people lead worship but the camera was not focused on the congregation so I can’t tell if people were singing. Either way what I see in that picture is gross incompetence. This is neglect in a troubling way. If there is an outbreak in the Menominee Falls area of Milwaukee and contact tracing ties it to Wooded Hills I would be livid. If someone came down with COVID-19 and passes away and the infection is tied to Wooded Hills that would be ground for a lawsuit in this blog’s view. But Wooded Hills will crawl along. No doubt they will talk about how the Lutherans in the area are lost and not Christians. No doubt they will talk about how they need to witness Jesus to the area and reach people. And while they discuss all this they will not wear masks or have any consideration for the elderly, the immune-compromised or more. But remember they love Jesus. They sacrifice so hard for the Lord at Wooded Hills.
The Jenkins family
Is Theo Williams Going to Follow Joe Jenkins Lead and Try and Raise Someone From the Dead?
Here is another question to ask Wooded Hills. When I was a member of Wooded Hills and lived in the Milwaukee area Joe Jenkins tried to raise someone from the dead. One of the elders died at the time in 2003 to 2004. From what I heard after he died in the hospital room Joe Jenkins in front of a grieving family tried to raise someone from the dead and allegedly commanded him to rise. The inspiration for this no doubt comes from the story of Lazarus. Here is my question to Theo Williams if someone comes down with COVID-19 and dies will Theo try and raise them from the dead? Will he command they rise and get out of their bed in the ICU at Froedtert Menomonee Falls Hospital? Its an honest question that this blog has for the leadership of Wooded Hills. In this church which is influenced by the Kansas City International House of Prayer if that was attempted that could solidify Wooded Hills of being a remote campus of Bethel in Redding, California.
