We have all had fun sitting back watching the blatant idolatry that goes on in various COG's splinter groups since the Worldwide Church of God imploded. It all started with Gerald Flurry who imitates everything he could to be like Herbert Armstrong. From building a mini-me auditorium to traipsing in the woods of Oregon to haul back a dirty rock and he claims HWA prayer at to buying an aging mansion in England and starting another "college."
Meredith then tried to emulate HWA, at who's feet he had been trained, but has failed rather spectacularly. After failing miserably in Global Church of God, he took their money and started the Living Church of God. Never able to afford to build a college campus with fine buildings and gardens, he has had to settle on a few rooms in an office building for his "college."
Then there is United Church of God, another sad imitator, who has split and fractured so many times that they cannot keep up to date on how many are actual members. Its media campaigns have been disastrous. Like Meredith, it too has a few rooms in an office building that house it's "Bible" Center.
Like Gerald Flurry, Dave Pack has built himself a little empire that is another imitation of Herbert Armstrong's visions. Regardless of how much he lies that he was trained at HWA's feet, which he wasn't, he cannot make his dwindling cult desirous of other COG members. After predicting tens of thousands of wayward COG members would soon be flocking to Wadsworth, he has been left sitting red faced as he is unable to build his own mini-me auditorium.
Dave recently sold his home and has had a new one construct on the Wadsworth compound along with other "faculty" homes for the boot clicking elite. It's all imitation and make believe. From the streams, flower beds, building designs, to even the trees he plants
Everything he does is an imitation of what Herbert Armstrong did. Dave can never compare. It is a poor business model that was doomed to failure from the start. Dave does not have the personality that HWA did. When HWA sent out regular bombastic letters blaming members for church problems and that they needed to send in more money, they did. When Dave speaks people tend to ignore him. People look at Dave as a liar. They are leaving his church daily and money continues to be a struggle.
How long will it be till the Wadsworth compound has to be sold to developers who will build condo's?
