It has been reported here and on other sites, including several Facebook sites, about Elijah Baghdad Pack's blatant hypocrisy in setting the example for his membership. Elijah Baghdad Dave has been telling his members for many years now that everything that they own does NOT belong to them and them they need to sell it, mortgage it, or cash it in and send it to Elijah Baghdad Dave's HQ. The broad majority of the membership did just that a few years ago. Now, Elijah Baghdad Dave is doing it again. He wants them to send them every penny that they can.
The question being asked now is "Will Elijah Baghdad Dave do the same?" Elijah Baghdad Dave owns his home free and clear. Its in HIS name, not the Restored Church of God.
From a comment by Richard on a previous thread:
Thank you Ronco for doing the look up of the public land records on the title ownership of Pack's home. Then this indeed is scandalous on a couple of levels which is why I asked the question.
First, the obvious is that he is not following the example of God's end time Apostle Herbert Armstrong who owned nothing other than his suits, but controlled all WCG owned assets including his personal residence. To my knowledge, HWA's death did not probate a will because the WCG owned everything including his home.
Second, it is also obvious that Dave Pack is a hypocrite asking his members to mortgage homes and sell assets to fund "the work" of his RCG fear religion business. Dave does not lead by example and is unwilling to do what he threatens his membership with eternal damnation to do.
Third, and perhaps most telling regarding Pack's motives, is that his home titled in his own name would be insulated from any RCG bankruptcy proceedings should it occur. Unlike HWA, Pack has separated his home from the Church.
Not only does Elijah Baghdad Dave own his own home free and clear, many of the ministry do so as well. Not a single one of them have mortgaged their homes. They have not sold their homes either. They also have not cashed in any retirement plans they have. They keep every dime they earn when their sheeple below them struggle to survive.
Because Elijah Baghdad Dave has NEVER lead by example, what makes him think that hundreds if not thousands of COG members are out there waiting to jump ship to his superfantabulous personality cult? Why would any COG member, in their right mind, join up with Elijah Baghdad Dave? No one can believe a thing he says!
