Dennis On "How Long Will Ye Halt Between 2000 Opinions?
If Dave be Joshua the High Priest coming to his Temple, serve him
If Jesus be the High Priest coming to his Temple, serve him
If Gerald be That Prophet, Serve him
If That Prophet be batshit crazy, don't.
If Culpepper is against adoption, sell the kids
If Culpepper is batshit crazy, tell him to mind his own business or else
If you have only 3-5 Years left, sell everything and be a witness
If you think ten rounds of 3-5 is too much, go see a movie
If it is the real gun lap, run like hell
If you are tired of false starts and finishes, ask why?
If you believe Dave Pack is the source of all things God and True, follow him
If you think Dave is batshit crazy, ask for a refund
If you believe you can both build a brand spanking new college of the best quality and believe "my lord doesn't delay his coming," go for it.
If building a brand spanking new college of the best quality, with your money, doesn't seem to fit with "the work will be over in 2016," guard your purse.
If, as a minister, elder or deacon in another COG and wanting to join RCG, go for it man.
If, as a minister, elder or deacon you have any self respect, can think for yourself and value your own views, run.
If you really, really, really believe that the BIBLE speaks specifically of David C Pack in the Book of Haggai, sign up
If you think that's the most ridiculous , self centered, self absorbed and stupid form of "theology" you have ever heard, stay put
If you think Church leadership should pass to the leader's children, serve PCG or RCG
If you think that lesson has been learned, appoint an empowered board of directors
If you want to go to a genuine Old Testament Feast of Tabernacles, follow James Malm
If you have ever heard of Jesus, probably not.
If you can't say the word "Jesus" without visions of fluffy swoozy and nicey, follow Living Church of God
If permitting little children to come unto your Jesus sounds kind, try UCG
If study papers and rational inquiry into the beliefs and teachings of one human being are not necessary to you, follow Dave Pack
If you think in the multitude of counsel there might be safety, go to another movie.
If you think Jesus had a $25,000 (rumored to be) dollar nick nack of Elijah the Prophet on his desk because he just wanted it, follow Dave Pack
This one sold for $3600--Shop at Walmart man!
If you think that Dave can say, "Well Mary anointed Jesus feet with very expensive oil and only Judas got ouchy about it," follow Dave
If you think building homes for faculty and ministers, with or without paneling as we read in Haggai is ok for the Goose but not the Gander, follow Dave
If you think never actually revealing where the money goes and how much there has been donated, follow Dave
If you think you'd enjoy being under Dave's total control knowing he won't live any longer than any other human being and you will get stuck with the bills and no Christ, knock yourself out, follow Dave Pack.
If following HWA's 75 minute truth of sermon length but of course, not for Dave Pack, is the gold standard, well follow Dave.
If you believe Victor Kubik of UCG has set about the best and only example of actually feeding, clothing and making life better for actual human beings in the present time and not wishing them well and to be warmed and filled, go to UCG
If you think shunning contributions to the American Red Cross or any kind of actual help to real human beings in need in the now is bullshit and the money can be better spent on expensive trinkets in Dave Pack's office, follow Dave.
Now, if you want to see the Wrath of Khan in every storm, follow Bob Thiel
If you don't mind a not so earth shattering work in this end time, ditto
If you are ok with , "I am that prophet," "And yes brethren, I am an Apostle," or "I got an accidental double portion and turned it into my being a genuine Prophet," you ain't right but that which you do, do quickly.
If you don't mind saying, "Yikes, I gave 4,000, 6,000, 10,000 , 25,000 (for a trinket) to my church when tax time comes around, keep up the good work.
If you find yourself a little short and in need of some help but want to find out monies set aside for one purpose are often spent on other purposes and you are not worthy, follow....probably anyone who collects 3-T
If you feel in your heart, you are an "appropriate male," and can lead church services, contact Bob Thiel
If you believe you are a worthy young man and want to go to summer camp, contact Dave Pack.
If you want a sane, balanced and actually fun camp experience without indoctrination, propaganda and narrow thinking, go to Camp Grenada.
If you want more discipline and stories of torture, mayhem and what worthy youth do behind the scenes at camp, Go to Gitmo-Ohio-on-76
If 15 years from now you want your worthy children to tell you what they really heard and saw and went through, see above.
Well, point made I suppose. Life is decisions but in the COGs there are way too many others making your common life decisions. You really have to recapture your common sense and learn to tell your just a bit too intrusive and opinionated pastor and church where your boundaries are and mean it. Not that men like Gerald Flurry, Dave Pack and far too many others understand anything about boundaries but you simply have to set them. You will notice these types of men have very strict boundaries when it comes to your ideas affecting them. But they have little or no boundaries when it comes to their ideas affecting you. They expect their ideas and awesomeness to affect you to their advantage.
Do they see it? Are they sincere? Sometimes I think no and yes and sometimes it just looks like mental illness to me hidden well in a church setting which would not survive two minutes at any real business. What we have seen and continue to see is men who really do have personal, un addressed issues in their own lives running the religion show. Be they merely ego centric or totally narcissistic, a bit odd and weird or totally pathological, in fact, has to be left up to others who study such things. But you don't have to be the victim of it. That story has already been told over the past 70 years of Church of God antics and intentions and many are only reinventing the wheel of religion gone nuts in yet another generation if we don't learn from it.
I can't un ring my own bell, but I did not and will not keep ringing it and I hope you can dig down inside and find the courage to say the same.
It's ok to put yourself, your family and your perspectives first in your life. You can't help but be anything else but yourself, well...unless you are in most of the COG splinters and slivers. Then it is a sin to be repented of.
