It All Started 78 Years Ago Today



The cause of so much trouble and division in the Churches of God can be traced back to one single event that happened today, July 9, 1933

78 years ago HWA started a 6-week long tent preaching extravaganza in Oregon.  This was his first rebellion against the Church of God Seventh Day who had ordained him in 1931.  They did not swallow his drivel on British Israelism and holy day requirements.  So in a rebellious attitude he started preaching on his own and today we are/were part of the legacy of destruction left in his wake.

I want to know when it ends.

Say, maybe you folks can tell me:

I am still waiting for someone to raise Herbert Armstrong from the dead so we can restart the misery with Power!

Would it be wrong for me to kill him again -- after all, he was already dead?

There are reportedly still some crackpots who gather at Herb's grave every year on the anniversary of his death waiting for him to be resurrected so he can put the church back on track and finish this awesome mighty work to
the world....la, la, la, la,

This work was very important to me and my family in the 1960s. Today, this work is completely irrelevant in my life.

All of this due to the lack of a few well-placed condoms!

I can think of any number of other babbling idiots who could have hijacked peoples' lives, but it's difficult to imagine anyone who could have done such a thorough job.

I wonder if the urine squad is going to show up this year at the cemetery?

If I lived very near (like walking distance), which I thankfully don't, I might. I wasted too much of my life and treasure on that madman to even consider spending a dollar on gas for a gesture that accomplishes nothing.

For a while there used to be someone who went up to Mountainview and put pork hotdogs and pork bacon on HWA and Tkach's tombstones.

DB,

That might be called; Post Meditated Murder.

Sounds worth the price an airline ticket.
