Poor Dave Pack.
Dave is more concerned about his personal welfare than he is boldly proclaiming his gospel to the world. Dave admits he will not go into certain neighborhoods. The only neighborhood Dave is in anymore is his cult compound in Wadsworth, Ohio. He has admitted he very seldom leaves the confines of his campus. He has further isolated himself in the middle of the compound where he is surrounded by a few of his elite men.
Dave has never been a real he man when it comes to being a fearless minister who treasures the words of Jesus over hiding in some lily-white COG Steppford neighborhood.
Praying for the escape of brethren becomes so much more meaningful—and daily—with this new knowledge. Most of God’s people live in dangerous areas of the world, but when I say that, it’s a different world. Who is to say what is and is not dangerous, if you’re in a mall, on a train, or just walking out of a building and there’s a shooter. So I stay out of dangerous neighborhoods.Some COG ministers over the decades went into the dangerous neighborhoods that impotent Dave avoids. They valued their message and their God more than they did their lives, something that Dave is incapable of understanding.
Poor old Dave.
