God Hates Skyscrapers




Did you know that God hates skyscrapers and towers?  After God got really angry at the Tower of Babel, he has been holding back his wrath till the Arabs and others have built tall skyscrapers.  Even worse, some of the residents in these towers have decked their homes out with gold, marbles, beautiful wood, and paintings.

God's greatest end time prophet, Dave Pack, who runs the superfantabulous Restored Church of God has this to say:
You know it’s interesting. You look at the age that we live in, and people today are building these incredible residential towers. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen an interview of Donald Trump on the 55th story of his tower…marbles, gold, silver, tapestries, paintings, beautiful woods…magnificence in a tower. So it’s not a strange concept. You go around the world. New York is now loaded with them, partly because that man wanted to build them. But all over the world now, people…and the devil counterfeits everything…I’m not calling his place devilish, but you know, the Catholics always want high places—always do. The Tower of Babel…They started to build this tower, God knocked it down—said, “You don’t do that. You don’t stick a tower up into Heaven” and sent them away babbling different languages.

And when Christ comes He’s going to destroy all the towers, because there’s going to be one tower. We’re actually going to see He calls it a “tower”—one tower on Earth that sticks way up, and in importance is at the top of all the mountains of the earth. I mean, the ultimate lofty mountain, but now we know has a city on it, and it’s a city that has to accommodate ten thousands of people, ultimately, when it’s in Jerusalem, and they’re all living in mansions that probably, we would assume, look better than the one at the 55th story of Trump Tower or those towers that are all over the world now, where people live, because people want to live up. They’re going back into cities to live higher and have grand views, because everybody…I mean, men understand that. I’m pretty sure God does. I can’t even imagine what it would be like to look out of a 1,500-mile-high city.

So God is not about to have dwellings for three-and-a-half years…condominiums…high rises…that are more beautiful than His. You know it’s been said that Donald Trump is the only man who will ever downsize into the White House. That would be true, and not just physically come down, but just the quality of where he lives is just beyond magnificent. It’s never happened before. He’s worth twenty times George Washington. Almost exactly twenty times George Washington—who was the wealthiest president in our history. So the first president was the wealthiest until probably what will be the last one, who’s worth twenty times more.

But there are people that live in these incredible dwellings. Mega millions and millions of dollars for Penthouse suites. His kids live below him in that tower. Christ is not going to be second fiddle to places like that. I’m not just pointing to him, but there’s been scores and hundreds of thousands of people. Mr. Trump’s son in law, who’s an Orthodox Jew, is thirty-five years old and his net worth is 500 million dollars. At thirty-five…he made it himself. And he lives in an unbelievable place, too, lower in the tower as I understand. So, we are…we’re going to—you’re going to—live in a tower. You’ll be able to flit right out the window, though, and that’s another discussion. You’re going to have…fewer limitations. Let’s just put it that way.

This is coming from a man who found out that Rod Meredith and Gerald Flurry have second-floor offices, so he had to put his own office on the third floor of his Administration building.

Does this mean that two story houses are "out" too??

So Dave, how high can you build before it's a sin? 3 stories, 30, 35, what constitutes sin, just because it makes more sense to build up, rather than out? So many questions to ask! What about basements, how deep can you go before it is a sin?

Didnt know Catholics built the Tower of Babel...

And just think, people actually sit week after week and listen to this! Then on top of that, send in everything they own to fund Dave's own multiple story building projects!

OMG! Why the hell is Dave Pack such a bell head ?!?!

Well, the story indicates that He hated one skyscraper that people thought they could build to defy Him, or to counter His punishment. This tower wasn't an outgrowth of managing population density issues as is generally the case today. People who design and build skyscrapers actually use a combination of the foundational natural laws of the universe to do so.

But, this certainly does provide another example of simple-minded Armstrongian thinking. For one doctrine, they take examples of superstitious shamanism from thousands of years ago and attempt to equate those with secular scientists who have a deep knowledge of the natural laws of biology and physiology, and how to work within them. So, for years, they ban participation in the benefits of the medical field, and massive bad happens. Their people die of totally curable causes.

If a couple of bad events strike on a particular occasion, Armstrongism bans that occasion, unless the bad happened on a sabbath or holy days. The people who came up with this approach are not terribly insightful thinkers.

1500 miles high? I guess he wants to out do the Byrds who were only Eight Miles High. We all know what David Crosby was smoking but what the heck has David Pack been puffing on? as his rant does not seem to make any sense here. He seems to be just babbling on about nothing.

@Connie, Yes I'm sorry to say that two story houses are out of the question as they're too lofty. We might be tempted to get puffed up and want ascend above his lordship David C Pack.

Translation: Dave is jealous that he can't afford to build a skyscraper, so now no one else can have one.
