BOOM—now you’re over London...It doesn’t make any difference whether people want it or not……

And the Restored Church of God 
members will be there to restore it...

Dave and his crew are going to be busy, whether you like it or not!

So, you’re probably thinking, in the kingdom of God…And this is where you’ve got to get this out of your head. We all used to think and talk and meditate on this…you enter the kingdom of God, you’re an administrator…Not just the ministers are or the deacons and the elders are—they are under youYou administer. You are up above cities. So, there are hundreds and hundreds of people today…Now, I’ll come back to that in a moment. Then there are great numbers coming out of the ground to help us—and the entire number drastically increases…
Now, does God want women in the very first phase of the kingdom?..Just like the men, once you have received salvation, you are administrators, ladies—one way or the other—it won’t make a “lick of difference,” as they say, whether you’re a man or woman. The numbers explode.
……I’m trying to paint a picture here. Get out of your head that we’re coming to a time when just the ministers guide everything. You are going to join the administrative governing structure of the kingdom. There will be plenty of people when the kingdom starts out so small you can barely see it on the end your finger. Remember the picture. I’m trying to create a difference in your mind.
We’re going on to salvation. It’s different. Everything is different. You’ll have enormous authority in cities over all those who are learning about the kingdom and coming in. Later on, just—BOOM—now you’re over London. BOOM—now you’re over Johannesburg. It doesn’t make any difference whether people want it or not……

Who even wants to rule over cities? It's about as ridiculous as virgins being the reward for Muslims who hold fast.

This ruling over cities thing is an implanted desire that most people would never even think of if they hadn't been schooled to include it as part of the Armstrongian "proper attitude". Now, in terms of human drives or needs, self-actualization is at the top of Maslow's triangle. If we see this rulership over cities model as being symbolic of the granting of self-actualization, one could easily interpret that as a sort of reward. It's like, "Here. Life has taught you many things. Now use that wisdom to exercise dominion." But, it doesn't have to be over cities if that is not your aptitude, and it wouldn't be any sort of fulfilling reward if it were just a function of Armstrongism.

Maslow was a nut who never quite grew up, and his "insights" are indicative of that fact. Actually, he's in the same category in which HWA and GTA reside.

I can tell you from personal experience management is hard and the more people you have to manage, the harder it is.

And of course, David Pack and all those with him have had not one whit of training to know how to manage much of anything.

Proof of this is in his mismanagement of what he already has and it's so bad, he has to demand more money constantly from his followers.

If he's that big a failure, imagine what he would do with the city of London, even with a reduced size.

Oh, right.

He'll be able to magically and mystically produce resources out of thin air. Even so, even if he does magically and mystically suddenly have the resources, how is he going to manage them?

Incompetence not only knows no bounds, it doesn't even understand itself.

Perhaps (unlikely), we will all be there when Jesus returns and says, "Dave, YOU'RE FIRED!"

What are your credentials which would qualify you to dismiss Maslow?

Maslows pyramid is flawed. Primitive cultures put a premium on art, yet according to Maslow, art should be near the top, after 'lower' needs have been fulfilled.
Maslows pyramid is valuable in the sense of kicking off the debate on this issue.

Dave and his followers couldn't manage a lemonade stand, much less a city.
