In his September 27, 2011 member letter, Dave says that it was IMPOSSIBLE that there could be more than five years left till all hell broke loose. With Dave's EPIC failure in September and October of 2013, is he rounding up the wagons for his latest final push? He is already telling members to send in as much money as possible for a final push. Of course it has always been about money with Dave. It all belongs him, including all tithe money in the various other COG's. Besides, he has to keep his deceased wife's nurse happy.
Finally, brethren, let's remember the ALL IMPORTANCE of each of the four Fall Holy Days that are almost upon us. Over 16 percent (more than one of every $6) of the entire year's income arrives from just these four Holy Days (again, not counting the three Spring Holy Days). Please go to God on your knees and ask Him for the faith to do all that you possibly can for God's Work in these waning years of man's age. Know that I have not moved "one inch" from my belief about when the 6,000 years of man's rule are up. It seems almost beyond impossible to me that we have more years remaining than can be counted on one hand. Please bring the same zeal to your Holy Day offerings, as well as Tithe of Tithe and excess Second Tithe, that so many are bringing to the local fundraising effort, and to their willingness to obey Christ's command to "sell all that you have."
Also in that same letter, Dave whines about the "shallow" people of the world inquiring about the Restored Church of God. If Dave treats his potential members with such disdain, what is he going to do with the tens of thousands of COG members who will be joining up with him in the next year? He thinks they are just as "shallow" as the rest of the world. If those COG members were truly converted they would already be RCG members.
In 2011 as well as today, Dave is having a hard time getting "quality" members. That really should translate to "filthy rich" members. A few "quality" members will bring in far more money than a large number of poor members.
The result of what we are learning is that we expect to receive a lot fewer inquiries about the Church, but from people who are much more "quality" in nature than "quantity," and who have read a great deal more literature before asking about attendance. We hope and believe that the net result will actually be a faster growth rate in the Church in 2012 than the perhaps 29-30 percent rate we should see again this year. Time will tell, and it is something that all of us can be fervently praying about on Headquarters' behalf!
We now have two years left to listed to the mindless rants of the Church of God's biggest narcissist. Two years of pleas to send in more money and over the top boasting on what a mind boggling superfantabulous work he is doing. Come this October we will be waiting for the tens of thousands of COG members to join up with Dave and then watch him be humiliated yet again. Its actually quit delightful watching this guy melt down. Dave cannot blame the world or the internet for his rapidly declining empire. He and his minions are bringing it all down by themselves.
