For some reason Bob Thiel has always envisioned himself as a highly educated man when it comes to theology. He believes he is the ONLY one who has the correct interpretation of the Church of God version of biblical interpretation.
Several years ago he attempted to set Rod Meredith on the right path to truth and quickly found himself he subject of much derision in the Living Church of God. Meredith basically told him were he could put is reveled knowledge. Then,like any good Church of God leader, Thiel threw a hissy-fit and started his own church were the true version of Armstrongism is propagated.
At Feast time this year Thiel made a trip to Denver where he met with various Church of God (Seventh Day) leaders. Thiel spent time with them discussing Church of God history and the African members coming into his group with them.
Thiel feels his doctrinal interpretations trump COG7's and thus needs to inform them as to what the truth is:
My main interests in meeting with CG7 was to improve information on church history, pass on doctrinal information, help prevent misunderstandings, reduce the possibility of getting misled by pretenders to the COG located in various parts of the world while we in the Continuing Church of God work to fulfill Matthew 24:14 and Matthew 28:19-20. We also discussed, but did not dwell on, prophetic and other differences, but did discuss the belief that God will call all.
