A frail looking Gerald Flurry made his appearance at the Philadelphia Church of God's Feast of Tabernacles this year. His rapidly declining health is starting to be a concern with the echelon of the PCG.
Like his predecessor Herbert Armstrong, Flurry had to be assisted on and off the stage by Grant Turgeon. Many who witnessed Turgeon assisting Flurry had shivers go up their spines. Grant is the son of Wayne Turgeon has turned out to be one of the more abusive ministers of the church. Wayne is feared by many and seems to take great delight in that. Grant has turned into a parrot and mouths the same garbage that his father does and is now treating members the same way. PCG members are also afraid to see what position Wayne will assume once Flurry dies. Ranked an "evangelist" in the PCG, his rapid rise up through the ranks of the PCG happened because he married Gerald Flurry's daughter. Countless stories of his abusive polices have been detailed on this blog and on Exit and Support.
It has been reported that even though Flurry was in a weakened state, his message was the same malarkey that he has been spouting for the last 20 some years. Eternal death, famines, plagues and nuclear destruction are soon to be meted out on the heathens in the Untied States, Great Britain and Australia. Flurry is like Meredith and Pack who seem to go into orgasmic delight at death and destruction scenarios. Nothing could elapse them more.
Attendance at PCG's Feast this year was also down dramatically. One behind-the-scenes source said it was "...a shadow of what it was in the heyday of the PCG." They mentioned the Greenville SC Feast site:
Because of the horrific abuse, suicides and deaths that have plagued the PCG over the last decade members are leaving in droves.I remember attending the Feast back in the early 2000s when we had over 1300 people attending at Greenville SC and Sandusky OH. Flurry would proudly shout and boast at the Feast that the PCG would eventually have 10,000 members. Now the members attending at the Feast are around 700-800 people.
Many are asking the following:
The question is WHO gets to crown himself the Next Apostle and prophet of the PCG once Flurry passes on? His son Steven or Wayne Turgeon? Is the public display of Grant Turgeon helping the failing Flurry a sign of Who is next in line?
