In yesterday's missive from Dave Pack he waxed eloquent about his new building and the things he plans on doing with the campus. His posting was in actuality one big press release. That press release was bought hook, line and sinker by Colette Jenkins with the Akron Beacon Journal. It was like reading Dave Pack's bullshit all over again.
She quotes this from Davey about his coming "explosion." Is it me or is much of Dave's hyperbole almost borderline sexual? Dave's "expanding" church is ready to "explode." I get the feeling as Dave writes this stuff his eyes are glazing over as he.......well....................you get the picture.
The 4,000-square-foot media center will include three studios, where many of the Church’s video and audio productions and The World to Come with David C. Pack program will be filmed and edited. The program, which is designed to explain Bible prophecy by analyzing current world events, is broadcast locally at 6:30 a.m. Sundays on ION Television (WVPX) and at 3:30 a.m. Thursdays on The Word Network.In her original report early this morning, she said the church meets on Sunday. Davey obviously corrected this heresy. This edition has the correct day but still shows how secretive Davey is:
“These next buildings allow us to expand, in fact explode, in size in taking the gospel of the soon coming kingdom of God to a world in desperate need of this good news,” said Pack, who does not use the title reverend. “We hope in the fall to announce construction dates for the beautiful Ambassador Center, a training facility for our ministers and leaders, and also the crown jewel centerpiece — the magnificent Imperial Auditorium.”
The multipurpose room is also being used for Saturday worship services, which are by invitation only and typically scheduled during the afternoon. Plans are for worship services to move to a three-story building with a 450-seat auditorium, once it is constructed.
Did you also notice how many seats Davey's new Imperial Auditorium will seat......450. These copycat mini-me church leaders like Flurry and Pack have to settle for second and third best. The Ambassador seated 1,262 people. Six Pack Flurry's auditorium seats 850 and poor Davey's will only seat 450! For the worlds biggest and best Church of God ever this certainly is a HUMILIATING circumstance to be in! Third best. Imagine that. THIRD BEST!
The Restored Church of God is rooted in the tradition of the Worldwide Church of God, founded in 1934 by Herbert Armstrong as a religious broadcasting radio ministry (Radio Church of God). The broadcast evangelist is often referred to as "God's End-Times Apostle," who prepared his followers for a utopia to be ruled by Jesus.
Although Armstrong’s ministry has been criticized by some cult-watching organizations, followers report that when Armstrong died in 1986, his church was attracting 120,000 people to weekly services, with an annual income of about $200 million. Circulation of its the Plain Truth magazine was more than 8 million, and The World Tomorrow attracted one of the largest religious television audiences in America.
Published reports indicated that Worldwide Church of God members paid as much as 20 to 30 percent in tithes. Leaders of the Restored Church of God dispute that, saying members have always paid an average of 12.5 percent of their annual income.

Instead of reporting the truth about the abusive behavior of Dave, the lies he tells and the lives he has ruined, the reporter whitewashes Dave and his cult.
