Poor David Hulme has never been of any success since he walked out on the Worldwide Church of God in the mid to late 1990's. Prior to that he had a large home on the college campus, drove a Jaguar, wore expensive suits and reveled in the high life. His self importance was bigger than he was as a person. For a while he was the public face of the WCG's new doctrinal changes and was an advocate of the trinity. He was placed over the Auditorium Concert series which made his ego even larger. One publicity stunt after another was done in the Auditorium in order to make him and the Church look legitimate in the worlds eyes.
Hulme went from living the high life with an office facing the mountains, to getting kicked out of United Church of God, to a small craftsman style house on South Marengo as his mini-cult HQ. Like other COG's he started producing a slick magazine to appeal to the world. Also, like other COG's, it was a magazine embarrassed to talk about
Not long after his wife died he married a woman who was close to the same age as his daughter. Tongues started wagging and some people left. Because of the lack of younger members in the little group some members started dating outside the church. Hulme did not like that and threw down a lot of edicts that isolated members even further from society.
Now word is spreading that the Hulmerous Church of God is losing members. Silenced is reporting: Hulme's Cult Imploding?
We’ve received word recently, from some pretty reliable sources/ex-members of David Hulme’s Church of God, an International Community (COGIC), that the cult deemed the fifth largest COG group is quickly imploding. Word is that Hulme has taken a Flurry-esque turn and there’s been a sharp uptick in the number of excommunications and people heading for the exits.
What we’re interested in is to what extent that’s true, and what the current condition of Hulme’s cult is? We know it’s always been obscure, even for a COG group, and that it’s never flexed the same kind of media muscle as even RCG has. They have been very locked down since Hulme was fired from UCG’s presidency in 1998. What’s happened to it since then is rather sketchy, and we would love to know more. Breaching the information control of these little cults can be pretty difficult though.
