This August, it will be 30 years since the CoG changed its Practical Teachings, teachings that were part of the church basically since its inception. There is now a generation that knows nothing of the pre-1986 CoG. Therefore, I think it is best not to speak negative of today’s CoG. However, when things did change nearly 30 years ago, the CoG Minutes Book continued to state in two separate places, “The wearing of jewelry shall be made a test of membership.” So the question could be asked, “Did this particular statement nullify numerous CoG members that immediately wore their jewelry during that afternoon General Assembly session?” I had brought that to the attention of Dr. Ray H. Hughes at that time. Well, it really does not matter today does it?
