Ever since Herbert Armstrong died Gerald Flurry has been attempting to imitate the man in any manner possible. From dressing like him, combing his hair like him, building buildings like his, starting a "college", Imperial schools, magazines, booklets and TV shows, all in an attempt to imitate HWA.
Soon after Gerald Flurry finished his mini-me auditorium he claimed it was all paid off. Flurry dedicated the building as the Herbert Armstrong Auditorium and imitated it in as many ways as possible with colors, woods, stones and actual furnishings from HWA's auditorium in Pasadena. Flurry bragged on how dedicated PCG members were in contributing to paying off the building.
One of Flurry's cult members let it slip the other day that the "House of God" was NOT paid off and that PCG members still are fund raising to pay it off. While members struggle to live a meaningful life they are occupied by raising more money to pay this off as Stevie and crew jet around the world doing silly broadcasts and living in Jerusalem so they can see Jesus return at the Mount of Olives. Their apartment in the Jerusalem faces the Mount of Olives. Why buy one there? As the two witnesses they will need a home base while walking around Jerusalem in sack cloth and ashes as they proclaim its imminent destruction by the Great Whore or rampaging armies of Muslims, Germans or Chinese. Its all so confusing after a while so its easier to raise money for some building in the middle of Oklahoma
Honoring Mr. John Amos
Thank you Mr. Fraser for reminding us how much Mr. Amos should mean to us. I want to let you know how much he means to me even though I never met him by remembering him every year at The Feast of Tabernacles in his honor at “The John Amos Golf Classic”. I understand he was an avid golfer who loved the scenery of the courses as much as the game. The John Amos Golf Classic was started the year he died. It was started by a young man that had played golf with Mr. Amos many times and started it in his honor.That young man left the church and I felt it was necessary to continue to honor Mr. Amos in this way. So taking on the task of setting up the tournament every year seemed the natural thing to do. When the church began to build God’s House, we made the tournament into a fund raiser in Mr. Amos’ honor. I haven’t kept accurate records but believe we have raised about $3500 so far in the few years we have been doing it that way. We will continue to remember Mr. Amos and honor him again this year at the Sawgrass Feast Site in Florida. It will be a fund raiser again until God’s House is paid for. If you are going to Florida for the Feast, help us make this the best fund raiser yet by joining us at the 20th Annual John Amos Golf Classic.
