Billingsley thinks your salivation is at risk unless you reread HWA's ORIGINAL copy of The Mystery of the Ages. Billinglsey and Flurry both have placed HWA's book on par with the Bible. YOU cannot have one without the other. Salvation only comes by reading both. The bastardized version that Gerald Flurry is pawning off on gullible COG members does not count. Lord Six Pack has edited out references that invalidates his self-appointed status as leader and the rightful heir of HWA.
As we draw closer to the fulfillment of the end-time prophecies of Jesus Christ, I have great concern for the thousands of members who were once of us; many of whom I have known personally over the 58 years as a member of God’s true Church; and a minister for 53 years.
Over seven years, I have been writing letters in the Journal News Paper (Based in Big Sandy, Texas) trying very hard to get the members who read my writings to re-read the original unedited MYSTERY OF THE AGES, the last book Mr. Armstrong wrote, in the last year of his life, to aid all— “. . . to contend earnestly for the FAITH which was ONCE FOR ALL DELIVERED to the saints” (Jude 3-4; II Peter 2:1-3).
Hardly anyone even responds. Sadly, the day will soon come when many will wish they had returned to the fullness of the Faith of Jesus Christ with belief and their whole heart. It is enough to make a person want to cry for them as did Jeremiah for Judah knowing what was going to take place with them, and no one would listen to him (Jeremiah 8:2122; 9:1). Instead they placed him in prison.
Thankfully, COG members have realized that Billingsley is a nut job and are not flocking to him. When a COG minister says "hardly" it means NO ONE is responding.
