God's greatest prophet and Chief Overseer to ever run a Church of God has released his online magazine for October. In it were these morsels of narcissistic arrogance.
The Continuing Church of God does not claim that all its members are Philadelphian, but we do believe we are a uniquely Philadelphian remnant. Can one find a more faithful or more effective “corporate body” which retains the truth as taught by Bible and Herbert Armstrong, without adding non- biblical “revelations,” relying on traditions above the Bible, or diverting its members from making their top priority the Great Commission of proclaiming the Gospel as established by Jesus Christ?
God is soon going to open the hearts of the poor deceived Laodiceans in the various COGs so that they come over to Thiel's group. Since none of them went with Dave Pack they must now go to Bob Thiel.No!
One can expect that Philadelphians, who care about doing an effective Work, fulfilling Matthew 24:14 and Matthew 28:19- 20, and holding fast to the Truth, will ultimately be led by God to support the Continuing Church of God. Of course, simply attending and/or supporting the Continuing Church of God does not make one a Philadelphian; individual members must do their part, and must not allow their lives to be cluttered by the cares of this world so that they themselves become lukewarm (Laodicean).
Right now no one cares about Thiel's ministry, much like they are doing with Malm's ministry.
And SHAME on those that remain INDEPENDENT of any corporate church....
With all the confusion and misreporting that has occurred in the last several years, we can appreciate that there are Philadelphians outside the Continuing Church of God. However, this is not an excuse for zealous Christians to become “independent.”
