One of the favorite tricks of cults is to keep its members in a constant state of fear. Armstrongism has been really good at that over the decades. Wars, famines, droughts, parents eating children, invading German armies, concentration camps with meat-hooks and ovens, children getting their heads bashed in or eaten by ravenous hungry dogs, etc., etc. Keep them scared shitless and they will send in as much money as possible to finish the work.
In the months and years to come, brethren, I want us all to realize more fully that the time of terrible persecution is growing closer and closer. We will really need to help and encourage one another. We will really need to deeply appreciate one another in the midst of a dark and perverse world. For this world hates the way of God, and you will begin to realize this more and more as this Work grows in power and the world turns on us because we preach the Truth. Personal
Knowing that intense persecution is soon to befall them seems to have no bearing on dumping tens of thousands of dollars remodeling executive offices at LCG HQ in Charlotte. Shouldn't that money go towards a final push and final warning instead of the elite of LCG?
It has been a little noisy this week as we do some remodeling in the Executive Office area to make room for growth. It certainly has been exciting and inspiring to see the doors that God is opening with television and the Internet. . .
