The Philadelphia Church of God continues to sink lower and lower into the pig slop they are so comfortable living in. What is described below is elder abuse and is prosecutable. Its only a matter of time to till some PCG member has enough of Flurry's degenerate teaching and they sues the pants off him and his cult.
The following excerpt is from a letter on the Exit and Support site:
I became a member of this destructive group in August of 2003, but started attending in January of 2003. I, like many others, thought I had found the "true" church. I had known of Herbert Armstrong since the 1960s. But shortly after becoming a member, things started to bother me.
I had not been a member long when the no-contact rule1 started to emerge. This ruling states that anyone in a splinter group is Laodicean. Then they had some members cut off their own grown children if they were raised in the PCG and didn't come into the PCG [become a member]. From what I can gather from what I have experienced and seen and heard, it has nothing to do with "Laodiceans," only control. They are afraid of what can be found out from others that have exited and how cruel and deceitful the ministers can be.
Members in PCG are not above lying to get information. They try to turn one member against another. I was very dissatisfied with the PCG for years but stayed for the most part to help an elderly person that had been treated like a dog by the "church" and some of the members at the direction of the ministry. This person became very ill and was hospitalized for about 3 months. During that time they made a member their power of attorney. When this person came out of the hospital, they had no home, no car, and all of their personal possessions were gone. They did have some money from the sale of the home but certainly not enough to purchase another and ended up in senior housing. Things were given away or sold for far less than what they were worth. I could not believe how uncaring these people were. When this person talked to the ministry about it, they were told to "let it go."
This cult has no love in it except for the love of money and power! The ministry knows they are losing control and will stop at nothing to retain it. Keeping these people from contact of others that have exited by telling them that "the devil has gotten to these people that exit" is keeping them from the truth so the ministry can continue to lie to them. Deceit in the PCG is doctrine to them as far as I'm concerned. Like I have told others in the PCG, if God was as slow to forgive as the ministry, we would all be in trouble.
