1) The government of God is not found in any splinter group: Every Church of God out there in the land of Laodicea is an apostate false church that is unfit for membership in. Only by being in the Restored Church of God can you come under true government where the Dear Leader can reeducate you into blind submission.
2) The splinters have either watered down or rejected the place of safety doctrine: A place of protection is promised to “the woman,” the true church—and only to that one, unified, organized body of believers: “And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from [away from—out of reach of] the face of the serpent” (Rev. 12:14).
All of you folks in UCG and other splinter groups you need to wake up to the fact your ass is grass. You are never going to Petra. It is reserved for Dave and crew. Of course Dave will be outside in the Marriott while the dumb sheep are starving to death inside.
3) Divorce and remarriage has been liberalized: Most splinters now exercise their own convenient, man-made theology when it comes to divorce and remarriage. It has become common practice in many splinters to allow the divorcing of a mate who departs from his or her “organizational fellowship” to another “COG,” with the remaining spouse then deemed free to marry again within their present organization, regardless of other circumstances. Others allow someone who has jumped ship to their COG organization to be free to divorce and marry again within his or her “new” group.
4) The splinters have lost sight of what was and was not God’s Church through history: Among the splinters, the line between the Church and the world—between the children of light and the children of darkness—becomes blurrier all the time. Many have forgotten who the true people of God were in each era, and who were the illegitimate “splinters” and offshoots—which have virtually always existed, beginning in the Ephesian era.
Only by joining forces with Dave, sending in your money, and submitting to your overlords, can your salvation be assured. So step right up and surrender your brain and reasoning to the lord and master.
To be a part of those who are used to finish God’s Work, and are delivered from the face of the devil during the soon-coming Great Tribulation, this knowledge—and the action that is demands of those who prove it—is essential.
