But before we get started, Davie is orgasmicly delighted at this latest revelation. He writes breathlessly: [The following letter, in its entirety, is a “must read.” - rcgtruth.com] Strangely, this is the same thing he said about Schurter. But Schurter then had to go and embarrass the hell out of him.
Before Vidal starts his story, he and RCG's PR department, want to make sure that you are not being swayed by the rampant criticism of Schurter's mind washing that has spread around the world over the last week and a half. Davie Pack and his Restored Church of God cult are circling the wagons in order to save the minds of people who have been turned off by criticism of Davie and Schurter. Schurter has come off looking like a complete fool with the things he has been forced to write about after he was exposed for many of his aberrant beliefs that went against Davie's revealed knowledge.
Vidal/RCG PR Department goes on to write:Before telling the story of my previous affiliation with the United Church of God (UCG), I first want to urge you, brethren: do not allow slander and false accusations against Mr. David Pack, Mr. Dale Schurter or RCG to keep you from returning to the “faith which was once delivered” (Jude 1:3)!
Since Schurter never once discussed Jesus in his letters and Davie is largely silent about the man, I find it laughable that Vidal equates pointing out the hypocrisy and lies of Pack and Schurter as persecuting Jesus. Plus, Schurter, Pack and you Vidal, are NOT true servants and in no way, shape, or form are anything like martyrs down through history. Turncoats, backstabbers, and hypocrites, yes, martyrs no.
Have you ever considered that ignorant and mischievous people falsely accused Jesus Christ of all types of sins? True servants of God have over the millennia similarly been attacked, including Mr. Armstrong!
Vidal goes on to write:
To provide some brief background on myself, I am a Prince of the Royal Wachuku family of Nbawsi in Abia State of Nigeria. My grandfather was the Supreme Head of All Ngwaland, presently constituting 7 of the 17 local government Areas of the State. I come from a large extended family of lawyers, judges, doctors, engineers and other professionals. My legal career commenced under the tutelage of a late Uncle, Dr. Jaja Anucha Wachuku, who was Nigeria’s first Foreign Affairs Minister, the country’s first Permanent Representative to the United Nations, and First Speaker of the Nigerian House of Representatives. He later served two terms as a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Over the years, I have also had the privilege of serving in distinguished capacities in my country.
So? What's the point in all these personal accolades? You sound like Davie who is the biggest narcissist in Armstrongism today. There was a Prince in Ambassador in 1975 from Nigeria also. He too came from a large family with a father that had 20 some wives. So what! As Yoda says, "Not, we are impressed."
Vidal then goes on to throw more accolades around about his wife:
Davie must be soooooooooo impressed! Yoda still is not.As an Attorney-At-Law (Solicitor & Advocate of the Supreme Court of Nigeria), I was admitted to the Nigerian Bar in 1984. My wife, Christine, is a professional colleague who was admitted to the Bar in 1986. She served as a State Prosecuting Counsel for some years before joining me in private legal practice..
Vidal then tells about how he also started a splinter cult in Nigeria called The Narrow Way Church of God.
In time, with the Church’s doctrines being watered down and eventually thrown out by apostate leaders, some members, including two other faithful ministers and I, later formed the Narrow Way Church of God (NWCG), with our base in Abuja, Nigeria.
Next Vidal throws around a recurring phrase that Schurter and others have used, "anointing our eyes". The paragraph he has supposedly written below sounds exactly like what Pack and others have repeated over and over. Can these guys ever come up with an original thought that does not have Pack's hand all over it?
Even though some followed his advice, the majority decided to individually investigate RCG, and came to the conclusion any discerning inquirer will reach: that in the cacophony of dissenting and disagreeing voices among the “COGs,” RCG, by its fruits, stood out (and still stands out) as the only genuine continuation of the Work led by Mr. Armstrong. For us, the process started with several days and sleepless nights of investigating the over 300 splinters and slivers on the Internet, followed by several weeks of intense study. Despite all the attacks launched against Mr. Pack and RCG, our studies revealed that it alone held to and taught the precision of doctrine as restored by God through Mr. Armstrong. In the circumstance, my wife and I, after anointing our eyes (Rev. 3:18), along with our children, became reconnected to what we once all knew and believed. So did more than two-thirds of the membership of the now defunct NWCG. This was a homecoming that immediately rejuvenated many who were beginning to be discouraged.
Vidal next writes:
I have first-hand knowledge of what Mr. Schurter and others are battling as they return to the Body of Christ. He looks forward to resuming his posts on this site, but as he continues to work intensively with members, I and other ministers will relate our own personal experiences. Recognize that deceivers (II Tim. 3:13), including many “long-time ministers” thought to be “faithful,” will do everything in their power to cloud the real issues and distract us from what really matters—truth, traditions, standards and fruits!
Translation: I have seen first hand how Schurter got ripped over the coals by THE Mr. Apostle Davie and there is no way in hell I am going to write something here that would lead me into the same reeducation and mind washings sessions that Schurter is going through right now. Please bear with us during this reeducation process, once he has been mind washed completely he will return with glorious pre-chosen words from The Dear Leader.
He then goes on to smear United Church of God with rather angry words. It looks like not all of his small cult followers went with Vidal to RCG but stayed with UCG. That was because these foolish members had NOT "anointed" their eyes. They were too dumb and blind to see that the worlds largest and most important Church of God on the face of the earth was calling them.
At the time we made contact with RCG, the aforementioned UCG minister immediately flew to Nigeria and came to Abuja to try to persuade us not to go with RCG. He and the former WCG minister (who had so recently passionately disavowed UCG) succeeded in convincing some (15 out of 55) who were not willing to study and anoint their eyes. The attacks on Mr. Pack got so personal that even the UCG Pastor in Nigeria sent text messages to one of my daughters, claiming that Mr. Pack would lead her astray and advised her not to follow us to RCG.
Vidal ends with :
I urge you to take time to find out what RCG is. Determine to dismantle the mythology that others have woven about Mr. Pack—just as my wife and I did, along with many others! There is not space here to tell you all that I discovered and how life has taken on a new meaning since we returned to God’s Church.
Thank God! It would be hard to read much more of this kind of silliness. The back stabbing and whoring out of ones self to Davie is appalling. These letters just get weirder and weirder. I can't wait to see who the next back stabbing UCG minister that has defected over. Will his letter be just as dumb? Will his be written and approved by Davie and RCG's PR Department too?

There is more that was just to dumb to make fun of.
