This latest Restored Church of God "minister" to admit that he the "anointing" of his eyes is Gene Zhorne. He writes:
We eventually found The Restored Church of God’s website and the book “Anoint Your Eyes” on the “Why the Worldwide Church of God Apostasy and Splinter” webpage. One word: wow! We learned how obeying Christ’s command would give us clear vision to see the miserable state into which we had drifted—and allow us to recapture the portions of the Truth we had lost over the years.
As we read more of the book “Anoint Your Eyes,” we came to the sobering reality that we too were “wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked”—just as Christ said all of His people would become in the final era of His Church. This was a terrible shame on us before our Creator. Yet, our spirits were forged during this time of deep personal reflection.
Zhorne goes on to write about the subjects that are important to Packism:
To grasp all that it contained, we had to read the book a second time. One pass was simply not enough. We then went on to read The Government of God – Understanding Office and Duties, The True Church – One Organization, or Many?, Surviving Perilous Times, There Came a Falling Away, among many other books offered in the Splinter Explanation Packet (SEP).
For a group that claims to be Christian take a notice of the important topics that occupy this list. Nowhere do you see these sick little men ever talking about Jesus, the message he brought, the example he set, and the grace he delivered. You can spend quit a long time on RCG's web site before you ever see them talk about Jesus. There are hundreds of pages on law and commandments and other useless nonsense, but scant information about Jesus. Jesus came to lighten the burden and set the captives free. Pack and his sick cult are all about taking people hostage and imposing hundreds of rules and regulations.
Zhorne then makes in incredible claim that he is too blind to see how this perfectly describes Packism.
The Book of Numbers, Chapter 13 and 14, brings out an interesting parallel in the commandment that God gave to Moses. He was to select a man from each tribe to spy out the land of Canaan—the “Land of Promise.” They were to be “strong and of good courage,” and to bring back the fruit of the land, as well as a good report. Yet after searching the land for 40 days, only two men, Joshua and Caleb, out of the 12 who were sent, gave an accurate and positive report—that there was a land flowing with milk and honey. The rest were afraid of the land’s inhabitants. They lacked faith in God to fight their way into the land of promise. Because a different spirit was present in Joshua and Caleb, only they made it.
Pack and other deviant men in Armstrongism had a chance to search the "promised land" of God's unconditional grace and redemption for the milk and honey it gives to believers. Instead these deviate men come back with law, government, rules, more law, and every kind of imaginable bondage they can weigh people down with till they are so burdened they give up hope and submit to their deviancy.
When will those that claim to follow Jesus start trusting in Jesus and turn their back on the dishonest, fearful and fear-producing deviancy of Packism and is small cabal of sick ministers?
Zhorne claims that listening to lies of those that speak out against Packism are destroying your chance for the land of promise. I can state with absolute confidence that following the lies of these deviant men will destroy any spirituality that might be trying to break forth.
I agree with Zhorne's comment above. No one that claims to follow Jesus should be mingling with the errors and filth that is Packism It is an inferior, tainted product that is destructive to the core.Just as God, in Deuteronomy 22:9, tells us not to mingle seed, neither should we mingle truth with error. The end result with seed is a greatly inferior, tainted product, and the same can be said of the beliefs held by human beings. Error, like leaven, eventually spreads throughout its host (Gal. 5:9). But unlike leaven in bread, the end result for one with God’s Spirit is that He eventually loses it, and with it eternal life.
Yes, it is indeed sobering that 2,000 some people can prostitute their lives to one of Armstrongisms' most degenerate splinter cults. Even Flurry and Cox, as mind numbingly stupid as they are, pale in comparison to these morons.
