This latest video by United Church of God is downright creepy. Do they expect the public to be impressed by a retro dude trying to look cool as he takes care of his vintage car in a well kept neighborhood? Is UCG trying to bring back the nostalgia of the glory days of WCG when strife and division had not pried the church apart? How many families had to travel to the Feast in that kind of car in the 60's and 70's because the parents were giving all their money to the church and all they had to drive was an old used car like that?
I feel sorry for the little kids that have to listen to this drivel and the subtle brainwashing it is attempting to do. There is nothing wrong with believing in a future time when the world will be at peace. I think that's the hope and desire for the vast majority of humanity. The problem lies in the teaching that this is something people are required to do in order to make God love them and maybe make them kings of some distant planet. Kolob, perhaps?
One person on Facebook said that the voice of the creepy puppet reminds him of the voice of the pedophile on Family Guy.
Let's all song together about "...riding me a bottle nose dolphin in the kingdom..." ...and meeting "famous men." Obviously famous women are too stupid to talk to. Besides, just who are these famous men? COGers through history or real famous men through the ages of time? Buddha? Muhammad? Constantine? Charlemagne? According to COG teaching these men won't be in the first 1,000 years of that kingdom anyway. Only the resurrected saints and those remaining alive after the Catholic Church is through killing true believers and nuclear war is over will be in the kingdom. Those famous dudes won
t be there but will pop up on the scene later on.
Obviously their marketing guru's think this series of videos is the next best thing to hot buttered biscuits. But really, WHO is watching these videos other than UCGer's who are told to click the "Like" button as often as possible to give these videos a higher ranking.
My favorite comment was this: "All of their "worldy" friends on FB are looking at the video and thinking, "WTF?"?
