Ambasador Campus: Million Dollor Condos Will Be On Market This Fall

Long Delayed Housing Project Will Be Ready In The Fall
PASADENA - It's taken 15 years, four developers, one receivership and countless contentious neighborhood meetings, but the first 10 townhouses in one of the city's largest, most prestigious housing developments will go on the market this fall. "The Bungalows" in the newly named Ambassador Gardens, the first of 150 luxury townhouses and flats, have a price tag in the "low $1 million" range. And, as work continues on developing the former Worldwide Church of God's Ambassador College campus, demolition is under way on the distinctive "egg-crate" building that's been a familiar sight for decades from Orange Grove Boulevard,
It's a day some in the city thought might never come.

The new housing will also now extend down the hill along Green Street.  They have bought the property that Sunrise was going to build the senior center on (Hall of Ad).

"The newest wrinkle is that they have now taken over the large parcels along Green Street that were going to be the senior living complex," Mossman said. "So they are designing more housing for that part of the project now that will be quite different from the senior housing project -- it will be regular town houses and condos ... and we have not seen the newest drawings yet for that part of the project."

Besley declined to say how much City Ventures paid for the new parcels. The company paid about $15 million in 2010 to acquire 10 acres of the Ambassador

Philadelphia Church of God: "When the Whole World Will Be Gay and Where Gaiety Will Be A Fruit of God’s Way of Living in the World to Come."

The Philadelphia Church of God has a new article up that says: "When the Whole World Will Be Gay."

July 18, 2013  •  From
Gaiety will be a fruit of God’s way of living in the world to come.

Who knew!

Rod Meredith is going to lay a golden egg with this one!

Who is the idiot copy editor that allowed this to go through?  Oh sorry, it was Six Pack himself......figures.

Its written by Ron Fraser, who in PCG circles is not known to to be the brightest bulb on the compound.

Of course we all know who Fraser is talking about.  Its all those rampaging homosexuals who will take over the entire earth and do a home makeover.  Rod Meredith would never allow that!  Bob Thiel might, but certainly not Rod.

Fraser resorts to a typical COG demonizing of "the other" in order to take the heat off the degenerate actions of its leaders.

Curly-haired little moppet that she was, I chose the name Gay. I hoped that would be one of the blessings that she would enjoy in life at the human level—a life involving true gaiety and enjoyment in submission to God’s great law of love.

It never crossed my mind that the term “gay” would be perversely adopted to describe the lifestyle of those willingly in rebellion against God’s laws governing gender roles, marriage and family.

How did “queer” become “gay”?
Perhaps Ron should ask a few of the employees in Edmond.  They might be able to set him "straight" on that.

Six Pack's lieutenant then trumps out HWA to defend his stance:

In his book Mystery of the Ages, Mr. Armstrong made a statement which was repeated in an article in the March 1986 edition of the Plain Truth. He stated:

God condemns homosexuality. He destroyed the whole populations of Sodom and Gomorrah for this sin. It is condemned in the first chapter of Romans, saying no such person can enter the Kingdom of God. Then we try to change the ugly, reproachful name homosexual, and call those who practice it “gays.” The public media and the public in general are coming to make this perversion acceptable by calling it “sexual preference.” 

You cannot get a more politically incorrect yet totally truthful observation on the matter than that.
As for me, I shall continue to absolutely refuse to apply the term “gay” to those who adopt perverse lifestyles. I will continue to use the word “gay” in its truest sense, and label perverse behavior for what it in reality truly is.

Pray God that He will bring forward the day when the whole world will be gay in the truest sense of the word! 

I think Ron Fraser needs some help from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.  They are here to help the straight brethren:

James Malm: Tribulation Could Start By September 25, 2014

THE Tribulation:  The EU has set a goal for a new Federal Europe by next summer, which is likely to hit snags, and the man of sin could be set up at just the right time to offer solutions in late Sep.  The count back from the sixth day of ULB in 2018 [7 April] ends on 25 Sep, give or take a few days depending on the accuracy of my count. 

The peace talks are scheduled to last until March 2014 with ratification and implementation after that.
Fighting is going on in Sinai as the militants are cleaned out and an Israeli attack on Gaza may come soon.

Remember that peace and safety involves more that the Palestinians; it also involves Gaza, Hezbollah, Syria and Iran, and Islamic Extremism in general

While it certainly looks like everything is lining up for late next year for the tribulation; we must be very cautious not to get over excited until all the biblical signs are falling into place.

The next months will be most interesting, but there is no guarantee that the trib will begin in 2014 until the abomination is set up and a general regional peace is actually achieved.

Pack, Flurry, Thiel and the Narcissistic Leaders of Armstrongism

Prophet Thiel just leveled a slap to Davey pack's face with the following comment:
We in the Continuing Church of God are leading the final phase of the work and many events this week, as well as earlier, help show that.
How can that be when Davey Pack says HE is leading the final stage of the work?

What about Gerald Flurry who says HE is leading the final stage of the work?

What's a poor church member to do do?  Who are they to follow?

Have any of their members ever stopped to think why they are following these guys?

Here is what an ex-FBI agent who specialized in cults had to say about cult leaders like Thiel, Pack, and  Flurry: :
 Dangerous Traits of Cult Leaders
Having studied at length the life, teachings, and behaviors of Jim Jones (Jonestown Guyana), David Karesh (Branch Davidians), Stewart Traill (The Church of Bible Understanding), Charles Manson, Shoko Asahara (Aum Shinrikyo), Joseph Di Mambro (The Order of the Solar Temple aka Ordre du Temple Solaire), Marshall Heff Applewhit (Heaven’s Gate), Bhagwan Rajneesh (Rajneesh Movement), and Warren Jeffs (polygamist leader), what stands out about these individuals is that they were or are all pathologically narcissistic. They all have or had an over-abundant belief that they were special, that they and they alone had the answers to problems, and that they had to be revered. They demanded perfect loyalty from followers, they overvalued themselves and devalued those around them, they were intolerant of criticism, and above all they did not like being questioned or challenged. And yet, in spite of these less than charming traits, they had no trouble attracting those who were willing to overlook these features.

Here are the typical traits of the pathological cult leader (from Narcissists Among Us) you should watch for and which shout caution, get away, run, or avoid if possible:
  1. He has a grandiose idea of who he is and what he can achieve.
  2. Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, or brilliance.
  3. Demands blind unquestioned obedience.
  4. Requires excessive admiration from followers and outsiders.
  5. Has a sense of entitlement - expecting to be treated special at all times.
  6. Is exploitative of others by asking for their money or that of relatives putting others at financial risk.
  7. Is arrogant and haughty in his behavior or attitude.

  9. Takes sexual advantage of members of his sect or cult.
  10. Sex is a requirement with adults and sub adults as part of a ritual or rite.
  11. Is hypersensitive to how he is seen or perceived by others. 
  12. Publicly devalues others as being inferior, incapable, or not worthy.
  13. Makes members confess their sins or faults publicly subjecting them to ridicule or humiliation while revealing exploitable weaknesses of the penitent.
  14. Has ignored the needs of others, including: biological, physical, emotional, and financial needs.
  15. Is frequently boastful of accomplishments.
  16. Needs to be the center of attention and does things to distract others to insure that he or she is being noticed by arriving late, using exotic clothing, overdramatic speech, or by making theatrical entrances.
  17. Has insisted in always having the best of anything (house, car, jewelry, clothes) even when others are relegated to lesser facilities, amenities, or clothing.
  18. Doesn’t seem to listen well to needs of others, communication is usually one-way in the form of dictates.
  19. Haughtiness, grandiosity, and the need to be controlling is part of his personality.
  20. Behaves as though people are objects to be used, manipulated or exploited for personal gain.
  21. When criticized he tends to lash out not just with anger but with rage.
  22. Anyone who criticizes or questions him is called an “enemy.”
  23. Refers to non-members or non-believers in him as “the enemy.”
  24. Acts imperious at times, not wishing to know what others think or desire.
  25. Believes himself to be omnipotent.
  26. Has “magical” answers or solutions to problems.
  27. Is superficially charming.
  28. Habitually puts down others as inferior and only he is superior.
  29. Has a certain coldness or aloofness about him that makes others worry about who this person really is and or whether they really know him.
  30. Is deeply offended when there are perceived signs of boredom, being ignored or of being slighted.
  31. Treats others with contempt and arrogance.
  32. Is constantly assessing for those who are a threat or those who revere him.
  33. The word “I” dominates his conversations. He is oblivious to how often he references himself.
  34. Hates to be embarrassed or fail publicly - when he does he acts out with rage.
  35. Doesn’t seem to feel guilty for anything he has done wrong nor does he apologize for his actions.
  36. Believes he possesses the answers and solutions to world problems.
  37. Believes himself to be a deity or a chosen representative of a deity.
  38. Rigid, unbending, or insensitive describes how this person thinks.
  39. Tries to control others in what they do, read, view, or think.

James Malm Tells Service Provider Not To Work On Servers On Sabbath

The web sites of apostle Malm have been attacked by Satan several times this week causing them to crash.  Satan is apparently really pissed that Malm is spreading the truth once deliver which is now clearly ignored.

Ever the uberlegalist that he is, he demanded that the service provider that hosts his web sites to NOT do any work on his sites on his sabbath.  The arrogance and hypocrisy of this guy knows no boundaries.

The Outreach Site has been  down since Wednesday.  Apparently there is a major malfunction in the server and they are now going to migrate the site to another server after the Sabbath.  This may take a couple of days still.
Here is their message:     “I will go by your wishes and not do anything to your server until the Sabbath is over. However our next step is I believe to move your website to another server.  The current datacenter doesn’t want to service your server anymore due to it overflowing the network, we’re not sure what caused this or if your server is tainted.  We would migrate the website from your present server to a new server in our new datacenter with all it’s data.”

Van Robison on "Deceased Splinter Groups of the Worldwide Church of God"

Yes folks, splinter groups of the WCG are dead.   They think they live and are vibrant, but in reality they are deceased.   They are dead because they do not speak for God/Jesus Christ, but for their own folly.

Church rulers of all WCG splinter groups are ego driven human beings, who pretend to be humble servants of God/Jesus Christ.   I can guarantee that 100% of all heads of all WCG splinter groups will R.I.P. in the graveyard, the same as all other human beings.   That makes all heads of WCG splinter groups DEAD rulers, even if their time on earth is just a short short away.

Why anyone would follow a DEAD religious ruler is not very smart.   The same of course is true for all those who worship politicians as if they speak truth or speak for God.   All humans are terminal and I have yet  to meet a human being who does not die.   Sooner or later the pastors and elders of every church on earth will kiss the dirt, the same as you and I.   Why anyone would place confidence or blind faith in a preacher
in a pulpit is beyond me.

Most church goers have no clue who the character in the pulpit is, other than the fact that he stands there and pretends to speak for God.  He does not, but he deceives those in the pews that he does, while the "tithes" are collected and he lives a comfortable life, at the expense of very stupid human beings who waste their family money on a complete fraud.   The pulpit master acts like he knows what he is talking about, but in reality he does not.   He is just a parrot and speaks for his own benefit and wealth building.   Send in the "tithes" and he is the clown in the pulpit.

Every WCG splinter group head thrives on FEAR instilled in the simple minded, who follow this man as if he were God in the flesh.   Remember that many thought HWA was God?   And many more thought GTA was God? Oh boy what horrific deception and both HWA and GTA, found their final destination in R.I.P Graveyard.   Boy oh boy, how childish adult human beings can be so deceived.

Davey Pack: Do NOT Miss My Next Two Articles!!!!!!!!!!!! Unexpected Miraculous Things To Soon Happen

Davey promises that he only has two articles left till the great reunification.  He wants you to pay close attention to these next articles.  They will be filled with "shocking" scenarios of "climatic" events to soon happen.

Finally, do NOT miss the final two Friday announcements! I will cover many other scriptures related to the Haggai prophecy that I have only broadly referenced up to now (most not at all). They clarify some central parts of the prophecy that have not yet even been touched upon. They include serious—and shocking!—climactic events within God’s plan to successfully reinstate thousands to His Church. God must GET THE ATTENTION of people who are largely now not paying attention—brethren who think they have no reason to pay attention. Surely by now, if you have been reading regularly, you realize that things miraculous are scheduled to occur. But what they are remain completely unexpected. There is SOBERING news inside the GOOD news of God’s awesome purpose for His people in the immediate days ahead.

Davey Pack Says His "christ" Is Going To Help Him In Unimaginable Ways

Imagine a "christ" that has been so weak and impotent over the centuries that it now has to come in a greater role than it ever had before.  It's like the dude forgot all about those people that were following him and now has to make up for lost time.  Of course Herbert had to lay the groundwork for this"christ" to come back to work in.

Third, many ministers and staff today in the splinters who make the right decision in the days and weeks to come will immediately be of enormous importance to the detailed FULL REORGANIZATION process that will follow in the wake of reunion until the whole “army of God” is marching together doing the Work in unity and rhythm. Yet again, we can anticipate Christ helping in uncounted ways during this process. In fact, a series of verses in the latter part of Zechariah 6 describe His coming greater role in His Church to complete what Mr. Armstrong called “the greatest Work” ever.

Davey Pack Warns About "Tares" and "Flatterers" That Will Seek To Join Up And Spy On Him

Davey wants you to know that his HQ staff is working overtime on the reunification.  He also wants you to know that "tares" and "flatterers" will attempt to join up with the reunification just to see what is happening.  He warns the enlightened ones to be on guard for these people.

Second, 96 current staff members (soon to be 102) at our Headquarters, working alongside our worldwide ministry, are readying in every way possible that human beings can to prepare for the remnant to join us. Christ’s continuous help is also powerfully evident in this regard. Realize that we will have our part to do in learning about those who come with us to try to eliminate as many “tares” (Matt. 13:24-30) and “flatterers” (Dan. 11:32-34) as possible. Think of these as people who never belonged in the Worldwide Church of God, do not belong today even in the splinters, and certainly do not belong in God’s Church going forward. While some will choose not to come—generally the “beautiful people” who see loss of position looming—certain others (possibly many) will “follow the crowd” due to the normal human “bandwagon effect.” (Some of these will get in, so say the verses above.)

Davey Pack on Jesus' Behind the Scenes Vetting Process for COG Ministrers and HQ Employee's

Davey wants you to know that the created creature he calls "christ" has been working overtime in getting the mess all together into one unified body.

His "christ" is already doing the first round of vetting the ministers that will jump ship.  this is even before they have to answer to Davey and is 35 questions.   This "christ" is also vetting the office personnel in all the splinter group HQ's as to whether they will make good employee's.

First, Christ has told us within the prophecy that He is working out a host of details in advance of reunification—things that human beings cannot possibly do no matter how much or how hard they would try. There are many things that Christ knows that we simply do not know, at least yet. These include the advance “vetting” of faithful ministers, splinter office personnel and brethren. Without Christ’s help this could not happen, and we know that we could not begin to do it properly with so many, never mind at high speed.

Davey Pack On The Most Important Aspect of the Reunification

Now we get to Davey's most important reason for this!

Davey is moving into the 21st century and open plate offerings are soooooooooooooooooo passe.  Davey will be using electronic transfers for all tithes and offerings.  That way he has immediate access to your money.  No more long delays for checks to clear or credit card companies transfer payment.  It's Davey's money and he want sit NOW!

Finally, all must know where to send tithes and offerings. This must be understood from “day one.” Exact details will be worked out when the time comes, but here are some overall points. For those living in the United States or Canada, an online banking bill pay option is available. Upon reunification, brethren may also contact our Headquarters for wire transfer information. For international brethren, The Restored Church of God has some regional offices around the world. These offices can be used as a hub to receive tithes and offerings—Canada, S. Africa, Nigeria and the United States. At least four other countries are in the process of seeing corporate entities come into existence. Again, additional details regarding electronic wire details and banking information for our regional offices will be made available.

Many of our donors, co-workers and members use various online options (for instance, PayPal), which can be made available in the future to others. It is also common for members to deposit funds directly into the Church’s bank accounts.

Davey Pack on the Reunified Feast of Tabernacles 2013

This years Feast will be one of the most inspiring and superfantabulous in human history!  As with everything in Packland, it is over the top and glorious

Davey has set up 21 Feast sites right now and will be adding more as the the Feast approaches.  With the tens of thousands flocking to his convention sites around the world will be overwhelmed!

On August 7 Davey will announce his preliminary Feast sites.  All COG brethren who have already made plans to attend another site with their own group need to be prepared to change locations.

In nine weeks baby!  Nine weeks!

Next, the 2013 Feast of Tabernacles: This will also be among the most special and inspiring times in Church history. It will be a Feast of unity and harmony among all of God’s people. Everyone will keep this joyous occasion as members of The Restored Church of God in scores of sites across the world. At this time, we have 21 sites, but we anticipate adding many more. In some areas, former splinter brethren will attend our current sites. In other locations, we will have to quickly add new ones. In still other areas, splinter sites will simply become Restored sites. The total number of Feast sites, and where they are, will depend entirely on how many brethren answer the “stirring” of Jesus Christ to return to His Church, and in what areas they live. Details may begin (and only begin) to come into view on the first of the month of Elul (in God’s calendar—August 7 in the Roman Calendar). A more complete picture will emerge by Elul 24 (August 30). Right now, all are urged to have in their thinking that they will be reassigned to a new nearby Feast site, and those who choose to return to the Body of Christ will attend with what becomes a much bigger organization—probably significantly bigger than the largest splinter! Be ready for the most inspiring Feast you have ever attended—now less than nine weeks away!

Davey Pack: Here Is What Will Happen Sabbath August 31, 2013

Davey is getting specific on what will happen on August 31, 2013.  The more details he gives the dumber he is going to look in August.

In six weeks all the Church of God's will be meeting in the same locations around the world.  There will be no more divisions and separate COG services in the 700 some splinter groups.  All will be reunited in domestic bliss and communion.

Davey is expecting entire congregations to "rollover" into his church prior to that day.  The elect will have had time over the several weeks until the day before to make their minds up.  Then come August 31 the heavenly choirs will sing, Jesus will shine again as the morning Star, rabbits and baby deer will leap with joy, bluebirds and butterfly's will rejoice and the lion will dwell with the lamb. Oh happy day!

In six short weeks, the “Church of God landscape” will forever change. Saturday, August 31 will be a Sabbath unlike any other in history. It will be the first time in decades that all of God’s people around the world will be meeting together in the same locations for services. Words cannot describe the excitement and happiness that will be everywhere soon after this reunification. In many areas, much of or possibly even entire congregations might “roll over” into The Restored Church of God. Brethren will have had weeks to prepare for this and to “consider their ways” before God. Those who come will have been led to return to the Body of Christ the day before this Sabbath. Reread this last sentence.
God has been busily planning this event for 3,000 years.  God inspired Davey's mother to get pregnant so she could deliver The Chosen One II who will restore and reunify the work of God that He somehow was not powerful enough to keep going.

Davey will have phone operators standing by to take the phone calls of churches that want to defect.  Mail will increase at such a dramatic rate over the next few weeks that the Wadsworth Postal System will be inundated with hundreds of thousands of pieces of mail from Church members inquiring where they can attend church.

Realize that a host of logistical details must be worked out for this to occur. God has been planning this event for thousands of years—at least 3,000—and His Church has been preparing for it for almost a year. Headquarters and our ministers will be ready to receive potentially a great many phone calls from splinter ministers and members even in the days and weeks before August 31. Mail will also explode, but we are ready for it. We must do our part to ensure as orderly a process as possible for receiving God’s people on that Sabbath.
COG members should be ready for another Church split, angry members and hostility from those not enlightened enough to jump ship.

Of course, human beings are free moral agents. Obviously, some brethren and ministers will choose not to return—with this number being few, many or anywhere in between. In some areas there will be splits in the congregation, with some ready to obey God and others not. Emotions will potentially run high, possibly on both sides. We will work out how and where those determined to return will meet with Restored Church of God congregations and brethren. No one will be overlooked throughout this process. The Great Shepherd—Jesus Christ—will make sure of this!
 Fun times are ahead!!

Dave Pack: The Church Will Soon Come Together In A Manner Not Seen in 2,000 Years

On the road to Wadsworth

Davey is still predicting that the entire Church of God will soon be coming to his "church" to do a might work that last 23 days then culminate in one big "single" day.

Davey says there are huge implications for the tens of thousands of COG members who will be flocking to his group.  What will happen on August 31st?  More importantly, what about the money?  What about all of the money a few days later on Trumpets?  Where does that money go?  What will happen at the Feast this year?

Davey says not to worry, he and his team of 16 are planning this all out as it will be the most complex "coming together" in 2,000 years. Not since the Exodus as a Church of God leader ever done such a huger under taking.

Previous announcements explained that the group in Haggai described as “this people” by God, who now reside in separate church “houses,” suddenly come to understand the reason behind their decades of failed efforts. “ALL” of God’s people are foretold (twice—Hag. 1:14; 2:4) to return from their houses to work again in God’s House. A full reunification is foretold! We saw that Haggai describes a process that lasts 23 days, but culminates in a single day. God states that everyone “CAME and did work IN the House of the Lord.” This of course means they were SOMEWHERE ELSE—they were OUTSIDE God’s House—and returned to it to be put back to work INSIDE (“in”) it. Also, having been occupied elsewhere, they had NOT been doing GOD’s Work.

There are certain immediate implications to Haggai 1:14-15: “The Lord stirred up…the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and did work in the house of the Lord of hosts, their God, in the four and twentieth day of the sixth month…” These “nuts and bolts” include practical realities that will come to be on your mind—first and immediately: (1) What happens on the Sabbath of August 31, (2) how do people pay tithes and offerings, as well as a Holy Day offering just days later on Trumpets (September 5) and (3) with Opening Night just 13 days later (September 18), what happens at the Feast of Tabernacles. While there are almost endless other details being planned in the background here at Headquarters for the most complex “coming together” that the Church has undergone in 2,000 years, the most pressing concerns become these three simply because of when they occur in order of sequence. (Previous announcements have spoken to some of the other elements of the coming back together of God’s people so suddenly and in such large numbers.)

Dave Pack Is Back Mockinig The Other COG's

Davey is back today with another magnificent missive about how important, magnificent and amazing his Church of  "god" is.  Is just so superfantabulous that he can't get over it!

Today they are finishing a week long "ministerial" conference where one of the major discussions was the imminent reunification of all the Churches of God under Davey's thumb.

First, last Sabbath we began our 10th annual Ministerial Conference from July 12-20—the first one on our new Headquarters Campus. It was completed this afternoon, with most attendees scheduled to return home on Sunday. By every account, it was a spectacular experience, and was made more inspiring in that it was held in our absolutely beautiful new assembly hall in our new Hall of Administration building. Field ministers and Headquarters managers had the opportunity to hear six days of lectures on a range of topics, with the imminent return of all God’s people an overarching theme woven into many presentations.
After bragging about his new building, which actually looks upside down, he mocks the other COG's for their epic failures in doing a work as might as his. 

Davey still is ticked that no one in the various COG's seems to care about Davey's church.  If only they knew!  He says they are all "blissfully ignorant" but will soon be so overjoyed after their church leaders die that they will flock to him.

Davey is adamant that ministers and members will soon be flocking to his cult.  If ministers do then they have made it plain to the entire church that they are willing to sell their soul to Dave and the devil after they complete that 35 question questionnaire.

We cannot help but think of the large splinters that are so far—far!—FAR!—behind God’s Church in so many of these regards (and many others). Many would care about this if they knew, but they just do not know that they are. “Blissful” ignorance will soon give way to jubilant exhilaration at what lies ahead for ministers who have been sitting for years in almost desperately boring conferences that primarily served only to waste time. If you think this an overstatement, WAIT AND SEE! We are left to contemplate how many more ministers and elders will soon be meeting with us, probably in an extensive Conference scheduled for soon after the Feast.

Philadelphia Church of God Devalues Families That Have An "Unconverted" Spouse

In it's ongoing smear campaign against former members and heathen non-members and it's continuing drive to destroy families, the Philadelphia Church of God took a big swipe at their church families that have a spouse that is "unconverted."  Dennis Leap says those kinds of families might as well be single parent families.  Since the PCG considers unconverted spouses to be ignorant demon worshiping morons, they assume these spouses cannot discipline their children or train them to know God in the way of PCG wants them to.

What do they think goes through the mind of a spouse that has an "unconverted" mate after reading this kind of bullshit?  Some will think they are better off divorcing so they can raise the children in a "proper" environment.  That "unconverted" spouse has a serious impact on the child.  What malicious hate filled propaganda!

God’s Philadelphia Church has its share of single-parent households. Of the pcg‘s households, 531 include children. Sixty-one of these households have only one parent living in the home; another 98 have only one parent who is a baptized member living in the home. If we are brutally honest, these family situations are more single-parent-like than two-parent-like in many ways. We must recognize that both situations have a serious impact on parenting.

Then to prove that PCG really does not care about the children, it says this:

Even though God’s ministry and members must and will give you support, 98 percent of the love, teaching and discipline your child needs has to come from you! God expects that you properly and successfully rear your own child/children. Take God on as your partner! Never forget that with God, you have a Father and a Husband. With God’s unflinching support, you can be an exceptional single parent!
Your children are only worth PCG giving 2% of its time and resources to. Unless, you are giving 30%+ of you income then they will love your child more than 2%.  Your child will then get special perks than the other kids do not get.

Your non member mate is also an agent of Satan activly working against you:

It is tough being a single parent. Sometimes it is even tougher to be a parent with a non-member mate. Many things—jobs, budgets, shopping, household duties, and your children’s needs—will pull you in a multitude of different directions. Never forget that not only are you a single parent, you are a Christian. Your first daily priority must always be to seek God, His Kingdom and righteousness first (Matthew 6:33). Whether you have become suddenly single, or have been single for some time now, you must establish the habit of getting up early to get your prayer and Bible study in before you begin your day. If you fail to do this, you will be on your own!
Flurry's god is going to abandon you if you do not spend one hour a day on your knees and  another hour a day studying Flurry's crap. Satan will actively take over  your mind!  God will also hold you accountable if you do not keep your child on a blanket and quiet for two hours every week as you have been instructed to train your child by Six Pack and crew.

Jesus Christ has been lovingly warning us that Satan is now working against us in a feverous-hot rage (Revelation 12:12). Members that are not drinking in spiritual power through prayer and study are easy targets for satanic attacks. You must begin each day fully armed to battle our common enemy, not only for yourself, but your children too.

You are instructed to come to the worlds most well-oiled and incredibly educated ministry ever (sorry Davey, PCG has bitch slapped you AGAIN!)

God has set His ministers over the Church to help the brethren (Hebrews 13:17; 2 Corinthians 1:24). This certainly includes single parents. Your minister knows how to help you be a great parent. Your minister also knows when to get help from his superior when your problem is a very serious one. However, be sure to seek out the ministry for help before problems get really tough. Positive ministerial instruction—continually—is a lot less painful for you and your child. For example, single mothers with sons need instruction on how to guide the rambunctiousness of boys. Single fathers of daughters may have trouble relating to the emotional temperaments of their daughters. It is good to talk regularly about these types of issues. Your minister is a well-oiled sounding board for you to express your concerns and challenges.

So whats a parent to do when you new ministers is a new graduated twit from HWA college?  Would a wise parent really go to that person for child rearing tips?

Bob Thiel: Gay Marriage Is Causing East Coast Heatwave

Bob Thiel, the non-ordained self-appointed false prophet, Chief Overseer of the ContinuingEd Church of God, and worlds greatest authority on Mayan silliness has made another bold prophetic utterance.  I continue to be amazed and in awe of the awesomeness of these COG cult leaders who think they speak and act for what ever it is they call god.

The Eastern U.S. has been hit with oppressive heat recently.  It is now moving in "reverse" and into the Midwest.  This phenomenon happens occasionally and is a natural part of the weather pattern in the United States.  While most weather patterns move West to East, this current heat wave is moving Westward.

There is a reason for that, at least according to "Boob" Thiel.  The recent approval of allowing gay marriage has caused this.  The prophet writes:

Could the extreme weather be at all related to the growing legal acceptance of homosexual marriage and other abominations in the USA?

What does the Bible teach?

The Bible, in several places, ties weather issues to Sodom and Gomorrah, cities that were destroyed for sins such as their sexual immorality:
7 as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. (Jude 7)
6…the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly (2 Peter 2:6)

Like any good Armstrongite trained at the feet of Rod Meredith,  sex has to be involved.

However, Bob conveniently ignores the other scriptures that describe the "sin of Sodom." Those descriptions describe exactly present day Armstrongism!

"'Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.
Sodom's sins were pride, gluttony, and laziness, while the poor and needy suffered outside her door.
Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, excess of food, and prosperous ease, but did not aid the poor and needy.
"Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had arrogance, abundant food and careless ease, but she did not help the poor and needy.
Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.
Now this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, plenty of food, and comfortable security, but didn't support the poor and needy.
Look! This was the sin of your sister Sodom and her daughters: Pride, too much food, undisturbed peace, and failure to help the poor and needy.
"'See here--this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters had majesty, abundance of food, and enjoyed carefree ease, but they did not help the poor and needy.
This is what your sister Sodom has done wrong. She and her daughters were proud that they had plenty of food and had peace and security. They didn't help the poor and the needy.
Behold, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom, pride, fullness of food, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.
Behold, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom, pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.
Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom: pride, fulness of bread, and prosperous ease was in her and in her daughters; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.
Behold this was the iniquity of Sodom thy sister, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance, and the idleness of her, and of her daughters: and they did not put forth their hand to the needy, and to the poor.
Darby Bible Translation
Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom: pride, fulness of bread, and careless ease was in her and in her daughters, but she did not strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.
English Revised Version
Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom; pride, fulness of bread, and prosperous ease was in her and in her daughters; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.
Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.

Oh, Just Get Over It!

I had a person contact me tonight  that sounds like he is part of Flurry's cult.  One of his comments was, "Get over it!"

On Facebook today there was a reference to seem of the comments by Darlene Quimet on her blog, "Emerging From Broken: From Surviving to Thriving On The Journey To Wholeness"

Being told to “just get over it” is devaluing. It implies that I am making a mistake in processing an event. It indicates that something is wrong with ME because I am in still confused about something that has not been resolved.  The statement is emotionally abusive.  And even when it is used in a positive context, as in the example in the first paragraph, there is a negative left over from all the abuse that was forced on me in the past. 
WHY is it wrong to need to have something understood or resolved in the first place?

Furthermore, people who say stuff like this don’t have any solutions; they don’t ever offer suggestions on HOW to get over it or deal with it, because they don’t know how either. 

 They only offer devaluing and thoughtless instructions that remind me of my childhood and how I was never right, never good enough and never entitled to my feelings or to my pain. I was not entitled to realize that I had been wronged. I was always the one who was wrong no matter what the situation was. 

And once again this all began in childhood. Being conditioned this way as a child prepared me to accept that something was wrong with me, so statements like this trigger the same feelings of “not good enough” and “what is wrong with me, why can’t I just get it right?” Add that to “powerless and helpless child” and the teachings, feelings as well as the reactions have carried on into adulthood. 

Until I learned that I do have rights, that I am as equally valuable as everyone else and that I AM ALLOWED to and NEED TO feel the pain of the past and get angry about it SO THAT I COULD “get over it” (which was how I did get over it) but until I embraced those truths, I was stuck in the sick dysfunctional system.
