The Philadelphia Church of God tries to portray itself as the most successful COG splinter group that has ever existed.
It has wasted millions of dollars in fighting WCG over publishing rights in a court case they lost and ended up paying WCG millions of dollars. It has built multimillion dollar buildings on its compound in order to imitate the Pasadena campus. It built a mini-me concert hall patterned after the Ambassador Auditorium in Pasadena. It has built luxurious homes for Flurry and his relatives. Its now building a dance studio for the use of Flurry's grandkids so they can do Irish dance. It dropped multiple millions in Edstone England for an estate that allows easy access to Ireland and Scotland where Jesus will return to earth establishing his kingdom upon David's throne that will kept safe by Flurry, apparently because Flurry will have immediate access to the Stone of Scone and probably have it in his possession. Money seems to flow freely for pet projects of the Flurry family no matter how ultimately absurd they may be.
Now word is out from PCG members that the church admits it had no idea on how expensive it would be to run its new monument to Herbert Armstrong. Money is now so tight that PCG can't afford to turn on its Swarovski chandeliers for its own members to light the way to bible study or church services. However, if you are the pagan, Sunday worshipping, pork eating public, you get the full lighting extravaganza! Woo Hoo!
The PCG can't even afford to light the balcony or chandeliers on Friday nights for BS! Mr. Turgeon made the announcement that they didn't realize how expensive it would be to run the Auditorium. Duh! Talk about "counting the cost". The only time you'll ever see the chandeliers lit up is for a concert or performance, us lowly tithe payers aren't worthy enough! If you don't believe me, then just drive by HQs on any given Friday night during BS, and you'll just see darkness.
Its about time for the Flurry clan to start demanding that church members sell more property, cash in retirement funds and give everything they have for the final push. How many will be stupid enough to do it?
