What the hell is wrong with the Churches of God that it produces such complete morons like Dave Pack, Bob Thiel and Gerald Flurry? Why is the leadership of the hundreds of COG's filled with so many men that have mental health issues? The Church of God has a sad reputation of being filled with these men and sadly they run rampant over the members with their absurdities. Even worse though is the fact that there are church members out there that believe their malarkey!
Gerald Flurry has had a great reputation of saying completely stupid things. He is back again with an article to his membership on what a great man he is and how much he is like Jeremiah. Jeremiah is Flurry's hero with whom he strongly identifies with.
COG history has been filled with endless stories, due to the discredited belief in British Israelism, about how Jeremiah took his daughter Tea Tephi to Ireland along with the Ark of the Covenant where they buried it in a hill in the countryside.
Flurry thinks that he and his church will be the ones to find the Ark of the Covenant and return it to Jerusalem. That is part of the reason Flurry bought a mansion in the UK so they could have an HQ close to the Ark and the Ten Commandments. Flurry also thinks that he and his church will take possession of the Stone of Scone and take it to Jerusalem so Jesus can sit in it when he returns to wipe most of humanity off the face of the earth.
Jeremiah and the PCG
Flurry thinks the he and his River-dancing clan will have a special roll in overturning this evil world as they help usher in the return of
Flurry has been setting his members up to be royalty in the world tomorrow. They are the chosen called out from all of humanity and from ALL of the false COG's. They are the elite.
All these men can do is talk about their heroes from Hebrew scriptures and the law. They find no heroes in James, Andrew, Stephen, or any of the other real apostles who lived lives of poverty as they walked across the land telling the story of Jesus. There was no need for mansions, fancy cars, imitation college campuses with auditoriums, or Gulfstream jets. They sat down to dinner with the beggars, the prostitutes, the tax collectors and the unclean. They physically touched them and brought healing to them. All of these are things that not one of the arrogant bastards that lead the Churches of God today will do.
They are ensconced in the luxury homes and their gated compounds where they work in million dollar facilities spending millions planting elaborate grounds with pools and streams that the public is not allowed to see, let alone most members.
What makes these narcissistic men think that God is going to let them march into Scotland and take the Stone of Scone to Jerusalem, gather in tens of thousands to Wadsworth or be Elijah with an Arroyo Grande street address?
