The silly idolatry of the Philadelphia Church of God extends further than HWA Auditorium and his dirty old prayer rock. It now extends in revering the headquarters of the PCG, especially when
When a minister or member of the PCG starts losing their focus upon Edmond as the seat of the Almighty GOD then they are dooming their souls to the lake of fire! Not focusing upon Edmond is the most DANGEROUS thing a PCG can do. Really?4) It develops even more of a headquarters mentality.
In Ezekiel: The End-Time Prophet, Mr. Flurry wrote: “Think for a moment of the flip side of this picture: The Laodiceans turned away as if this was a casual religion or a game. How could God possibly use those people at headquarters? ‘So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth’(Revelation 3:16). God is sickened by their treachery!
PCG members must be constantly reminded that from Edmond the mill stone wielding law abusers can lay down the law. Families can a be destroyed, marriages ruined and children kicked out of homes all because HQ says to. They are under government and that is the most important thing that PCG holds as vital to ones salvation. They cannot talk about Jesus but can preach sermons, write books and articles and make films about government.
“Ministers and members in far-flung areas must keep their headquarters focus. Losing that focus is their biggest danger. Christ leads His Church, which is His prerogative as the Head of the Church.
Jesus be damned, government be glorified.
“Can we clearly see how having a headquarters mentality today leads right into being part of the headquarters temple in the World Tomorrow? Everyone on Earth will be looking to the place Christ is ruling from. This vision goes beyond Jerusalem in the Millennium—it goes out to new Jerusalem, out into the universe and on and on forever! It all revolves around the First Commandment. All people must first look to God—which means having no other gods and no other government! We can’t experiment with another government. Once we understand this basic truth, God can do so much with us.”
A strong headquarters focus is vital.
