The prophet Thiel has now officially formed his new personality cult/pseudo church. You may legally deduct your tithe money on you income taxes. A mailing address in God's appointed city now accepts tithe money.
Prophet Thiel's new web site is here: Continuing Church of God
Prophet Thiel is going to have a harder time in pulling Church of God members away from other groups. He seems to be intensely disliked in Living Church of God and United. I highly doubt any of Dave Packs minions will jump ship.
The prophet claims to have new people joining his personality cult that have no Church of God background. Sermons are being preached and services are being held. Prophet Thiel thinks he scored big by getting HWA's grandson to join him. Dan Mattson is now part of prophet Thiel's personalty cult.
In his first co-worker/member letter he says:
Dear Brethren and co-workers in Christ:
We have heard from scattered ones in the USA, Canada, Africa, and the South Pacific. As most of you know, this has been a packed eight days here in California.
On Sunday, I spoke over the telephone with the first person who decided to commit to the Continuing Church of God whom I previously did not know personally. After speaking with him and then hearing from the first woman to commit whom I did not know personally, I decided a high priority would be to figure out how to serve our few scattered brethren.
On December 29, 2012, we held for the first service of the Continuing Church of God. It consisted of having brief sermon followed by a question and answer session as a third of the congregants had never attended any Church of God service and had questions. But going forward a more traditional format for services was the plan.
