Ever since Bob Thiel stabbed Rob Meredith in the back last year by starting his own splinter personality cult, he has been repeatedly humiliated by Meredith and other LCG members comments about him.
Bob has produced yet another long missive about how the Living Church of God is picking on him.
A reader sent me an email last week which mentioned that Wallace Smith of the Living Church of God had posted statements attempting to discredit the internet reach of COGwriter and the Continuing Church of God. After responding to the reader, I decided to post a response on the News of Those Once Affiliated with GCG page.
Bob Thiel is just like David C. Pack. Bob seems to think his new upstart ministry is the most awesome thing to ever hit the Church of God. No other work is doing as might a work as he is. Bob thinks he is doing a more powerful work that Dave Pack. Pack thinks he is doing a work mightier than Thiel. The pissing contests are getting to be silly and childish.
Bob has been claiming the Alexa web counter is saying he is getting more hits than other COG groups. Wallace took him to task for his deceptive twisting of the numbers. The COG, particularly in Pasadena, was great at twisting numbers to fit the scenarios they were trying to get across to members. One Accounting Department manager told me several years ago that they could make numbers mean anything they wanted, even if the income was down.
Bob was particularly incensed that Wallace said this:
Bob then respondsAnd as for the “flag draping” Alexa fan I mentioned parenthetically up there who keeps beating the same drum–no matter how tattered and torn that drum gets–forgive me as I mix my metaphors by recommending a prescription: (1) Read Proverbs 20:10 & 23, (2) consider what you’ve claimed of others concerning having (ahem) a “love of the truth”, and (3) prayerfully study Matthew 7:3-5.
My apologies for those who find all of this minutia boring. Frankly, I do too. But when minutia is used to deceive (even self-deceive) and accuse, it’s helpful to get some honest perspective. Thankfully, it doesn’t seem to be convincing anyone, as I have heard of literally zero people who find such figures convincing. But in the event that anyone ever does get confused by such nonsense and “horn tooting”, hopefully this can be a resource for them.
...in addition to passing on insults, Wallace Smith is flatly accusing me of being dishonest or self-deluded. He also later in his post claims my use of (verifiable) numbers is deceitful.
The facts prove that neither of those accusations against me are true.
Bob wants everyone to know that the LCG no longer has God's blessing because Bob took it with him when he left.
Wallace Smith’s “perspective” on this is not, in my view, honest. I am also not ‘flag draping.’ Yet, if he is saying that most of the people he knows prefer to believe a lie than the facts, that is sad, though probably true. LCG simply does not have the Philadelphia mantle anymore, so it is little surprise that most there will accept these improper attacks against me as valid and will choose not to believe the truths I try to report. And the truths about CCOG’s and LCG’s Alexa rankings are so easy to demonstrate.
