An Offer To Prophet and Chief Overseer Bob Thiel



Prophet Thiel is not happy that we have been picking on him on this blog.  How dare all of us big bad meanies make fun of him!  Why don't we acknowledge that God has selected him as the new end time prophet to lead the true Philadelphians into the Kingdom of God?  Why do we ridicule his videos so?  When we mock prophet Thiel are we mocking God?

As many of you have commented, it is disappointing and amazing to see the amount of misinformation about me and the Continuing Church of God on the internet.  However, those who tend to have the greatest “love of the truth” should be able to see through this, study, and pray.  As Jesus said, “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). Member letter Janaury 11, 2013

I offer prophet Bob the opportunity to set things straight here.  Give us the reasons why we should be following you.  Tell us why you are a prophet that is better than Rod Meredith and the rest of COGdom..  I will post your rebuttal to the entries here. Are you up to it?  Set us straight on how things really are!

Thiel: Just another kook.

I wonder how many copies of the 2012 book Thiel still has left. I am imagining a garage full.

Never put a date on the cover of your book.

What exactly does Thiel believe he is the overseer of?

He "believes" he is the overseer of God's Church, the Philadelphia Remnant, I guess.

The reality is, he's the overseer only of those gullible enough and not learned or educated enough who might fall for his failed interpretations of everything, or so it seems. You see, Bob seems to think he has been given understanding, I think, to all the answers bible and early church and everything else.

Truth is, in my opinion, when you combine heavy doses of Armstrongism, add a couple shakes of ego, a tablespoon of encouragement, a doctorate (being the correct field isn't important), 5 teaspoons of Anti-Speaking powder, 3 tablespoons of flailing arms, and a pinch of self-proclamation you get...

whatever in the world this is. LOL

Thiel just wrote he has 2 radio interviews approaching and a second edition of a book. Also:

" it appears we in the Continuing Church of God have reached more people with at least portions of Christ’s gospel of the Kingdom in our first few weeks than other non-GTA COG groups were able to do. I plan to publish the statistics and estimates on the numbers of people reached by the end of this month."

And...

"Although we tried a third camera to tape the last Sabbath sermon, it (unbeknownst to us) stopped recording after about one hour and twelve minutes, so it did not tape my conclusion (which took another two or so minutes). So, please understand when the sermon ends a little abruptly"


He also wrote in his latest CoWorker/Brethren letter today (emphasis mine):

"So, for your part, again try to see if this can work for you. And do not get discouraged if you run into some technical glitches at first (also do not be discouraged by some comments that some will likely make about the sermon). We are trying to work through the technical issues on our end "

Also, do not be discouraged by the sermons themselves and the fact that you've chosen to throw your lot in with me.

Do we really want more than we're already getting from him?

Prophet Bob, your basic error - along with all the other COG-like groups out there that preach to the world - consists in that fact that you lazily assume your audience buys into all your presuppositions. HWA never really had to seriously deal with a growing secular audience in his day.

Sorry, but you will have to, and that will require you to PROVE such presuppositions, not just take them for granted:

Bob is no kookier than we were when we were in the WCG. So, stop being such smart-asses. It's not like he's Gerald Flurry or something. And he is no kookier than Meredith who thinks he's an evangelist. What a retard.
