Bob Thiel Copies Another COG Book Because He Can't Come Up With Anything Original and Then Promptly Sells It Members



Bob Thiel, the non-ordained self-appointed Chief Overseer of the Continuing Ed Church of God, Mayan authority and self-appointed world renown scholar on prophecy, has announced that his splinter personality cult has a new Bible Hymnal. Don't expect originality here.  Same old songs from from 1974 and Ross Jutsum.  Just another copycat.

Since its formation on December 28, 2012, the Continuing Church of God has used the 1974 edition of The Bible Hymnal of the old Worldwide Church of God (WCG) for its song book and made it available online.  But it was always our goal to produce additional song books by the Feast of Tabernacles for 2013.

Several have asked if other hymns, such as those composed by Dr. Ross Jutsum, could go into the new hymnal.  So, after a series of attempted, and finally successful, contacts, an arrangement between the the Continuing Church of God and Nazarene Books with Dr. Jutsum was agreed to and finalized last week.  So certain additional hymns from Dr. Justum were added to the song book.   The late Herbert W. Armstrong had long ago approved the hymns by Dr. Jutsum for use in WCG church services.  Many will recall such titles by Dr. Jutsum as By This Shall All Men Know, How Good and How Pleasant, and It Won’t Be Long Now.

So, the new 2013 hymnal of the Continuing Church of God consists of all the hymns, etc. that were in the 1974 edition of The Bible Hymnal of the old Worldwide Church of God, plus 17 additional pages added after them for the additional ten hymns that were composed by Dr. Jutsum.  The front and back covers were changed (the front cover shows the remains of what could be the oldest Christian worship building; see also Church of God on Jerusalem’s Western Hill).
Bob is selling this magnificent earth-shattering book on Amazon through his book publishing front that seeks to be a legitimate source for books in the world's eye.

Now, I, through Nazarene Book, have arranged to make the paperback edition of The Bible Hymnal via Amazon.   The Continuing Church of God is not selling the book, but Nazarene Books via Amazon is.  The list price for The Bible Hymnal is $8.99, but Amazon is temporarily selling it for $8.54.  Since Amazon has recently been selling used 1974 editions of The Bible Hymnal of the old Worldwide Church of God (WCG) for USD$22.73, and since the new version of The Bible Hymnal contains all the same unedited hymns, etc. that the 1974 edition contains (plus more), some looking for a COG hymnal may find it a bargain.

Before Starbucks, nobody thought that anyone would be willing to pay more than $3.50 for a simple cup of coffee. Starbucks figured most people would be, and the rest is history.

So, basically, he's selling the 1974 hymnal to his stupid followers, after they idiotically send him tithes and offerings, which the other splinter cults to date have used to print their hymnals at no additional charge? I like it. It's a creative way that to my knowledge has not been used before to extract money from those duped into following you.

Like Starbucks, you're plowing new territory for what COGers will put up with. If you're successful, now everyone is going to realize that people will pay at least $8.50 for their hymnals. No longer will hymnals be a drain on revenue, but a revenue generator.

Well, I was unsure, but since I can save 45 cents...

Apparently Thiel has not read one of the Ten Commandments... the one that says, "Thou Shalt Not Steal".

Um... does he expect God to bless his little cult?

Hey folks, hasn't this just been the BEST year for a meltdown?

So, Bob Thiel has taken the crappy 1974 edition of the WCG hymnal and has now made it even CRAPPIER?!

I'm beginning to see a pattern in how "Dr" Thiel operates!

(Isn't there a nursery rhyme about this- something about a "There once was a crooked man who had a crooked church with a crooked book on his crooked book-case"?)

And he's a chiropractor who's supposed to be straightening things out, LOL!

Typical. Everything had to be approved or sanctioned by HWA. Apparently he is the one after whose life and personal tastes we must pattern our lives. Shouldn't these guys be off in search of Filipinas?
