The Christian Biblical Church of God is headed up by Fred Coulter, a failed former Worldwide Church of God minister who, at one point in time claimed, that by feeling the bumps on people heads he could determine their character and mental abilities.
Coulter sets himself up as the ultimate authority on Greek and has worked overtime in reorganizing the Bible into the "correct order" he believes it had originally been intended. He then published his new bible, which was printed in China for an incredibly low price, to his members and the gullible public an inflated high price. Not only did Coulter reorganize the location of biblical books, but his real intent was to discredit New testament verses that started that the Old Covenant was no longer. One reviewer wrote:
However, it became clear that this reordering of books was not the intent and purpose of this new translation. Soon into my survey I began to note a pattern of what appear to be intentional errors in translation. I suspect that these errors are not honest changes of text based on an academic application of understanding of ancient languages, but instead an attempt to re-address doctrines of the New Testament. All of the errors tend to be those passages in the New Testament which revoke the legal authority of the Old Testament.If there is one thing that infuriates the die-hard legalists in the church is the claim that the Old Covenant has been done away with, which essentially means the 600 some laws of the OT are not enforced upon grace filled Christians.
Coulter is also the one who got many of the conspiracy nuts in the church all frothing at the mouth that the church was being taken over by Masons, Jesuits and Jews that were supposedly also practicing witches. This was all done in the mid-1970's before he was disfellowshipped in 1979. Coulter was actually disfellowshipped and excommunicated THREE times! The third time was Rod Meredith did it in 2008 when he discovered LCG members were listening to Fred teachings and he publicly disfellowshipped him, even though Coulter was NOT an LCG member and never had been (see below).
Coulter is like many of the other COG's who demands that his followers tithe. He has had several groups of people leave over the years when they discovered though well thought out study, that the Bible does not require tithing in the New Covenant.
All of that brings us to today. In February 2018, Coulter's UK office manager resigned and passed the keys, office and money over to a David Sheridan. Coulter claimed this was not his idea and does not recognize Sheridan to UK office manager. Coulter also demanded the money be returned. Sheridan has refused and now the CBCG in the UK has rebranded itself as The Christian Biblical Church of God Endinburgh Scotland. They even have a new web site found here.
They make this claim on their page:
We at cbcgedinburgh.co.uk are not responsible for their content or any sites they operate or provide links to nor do we give our complete endorsement, .Which translates that they are not responsible for the errors on Fred Coulter's main web site which has recently charged its name to Truth of God.
The new CBCGES is also age restricted. No one under 17 is allowed to visit or read their page. One has to wonder WHY anyone under 17 would even WANT to read their page!
When our Website is running,They also assume no responsibility of anyone damaged or hurt by reading their site:
As the years go by, I never cease to be amazed at the sheer lunacy that comes out of the Church of God any more. For a group of people who claim to be the "true believers", never has there been a group of people more screwed up than what the Church of God has become. Every day brings something new.
