Bitter Bob is being deceptive to his members with the following comments. He wants them to think he has hundreds of thousands of interested non-COG people clamoring all over his words. Many of Bitter Bob's visitors are one shot wonders. They come to him from various "Examiner" articles, his writings on Fatima and other Catholic topics, and prophecy. He draws Catholics for the first few paragraphs and then loses them when they see how anti-Catholic he is. His "Examiner" articles take various news items and then twists into perverted prophecy comparisons or Mayan drivel. Again, these are all one hit wonders. He is right about one thing though. Many of his visitors are not COG members. They are ex members that visit from links on this site. Bitter Bob needs to thanks us for his increases in hits periodically!
But, I would like to comment that, as you all have probably noticed, in the sermons I make statements which suggest that I am often speaking to an audience that is NOT part of the Continuing Church of God. A main reason why I do so is that the majority of those who watch our sermons are not part of CCOG.Bitter Bob next admits his listeners are NOT sending in money to him. A "great majority" of his listeners do not send him money. His African contacts he has been all a twitter over and not money producing either. They know a cash cow when they see one. Most of the people in Thiel's group in Africa have jumped from one COG to the next. Who ever has the fullest purse gains their loyalty.
And this is true even of our offertory messages. The great majority of those who watch the Holy Day offering videos do not provide any offering. So, when I make statements in sermons that you figure that everyone in CCOG should know, please understand that most who will watch the sermons are not part of CCOG and many have never been part of any Church of God group.A few paragraphs later he writes this absurd statement:
Finally received a report from Google related to April 2014 results. Between our small Google ad program as well as our multiple websites, we reached over 2,000,000 computers in April 2014. While we always wish to reach more, we are reaching millions. The time will come when the number will reach closer to one or more billions as we get closer to the end time.If little tiny Bitter Bob can garner 2,000,000 hits a month, then what does that say about Meredith and Pack? They have far more money and reach far more people. If they cannot reach BILLIONS already why does Bitter Bob feel HE and HE ALONE will be doing a far greater outreach? Talk about delusional!
Then Bitter Bob lets slip a few more lines of information that lets the world know he is hurting financially.
Due to his COG personality cult start-up he has had to stop taking in "patients" for his homeopathic snake oil sales. That has cut his income also. Add to that they humongous lack of tithes and offerings coming in, things are getting rough in Arroyo Grande.
You would think that with such an earth girdling ministry that his reaching millions and millions of people each month that he could at least afford high speed Internet at his
Things are so bad with the Bitter Overseer that he may not be able to print his his next letter and mail it.
Paper, Envelopes and stamps cost money brethren! Send it in or I will NOT mail you my earth shattering letters!

Like the Apostle Paul, we are not particularly entertaining speakers, but do try to declare the testimony of God to our people and those in the world.Rod Meredith must be having a field day!
Note: There is a small chance that next week, this letter will not be emailed to those who have requested it. If you do not receive it by Friday, May 30, 2014, there should be a version available at the Letters to the Brethren link at the CCOG.org website.
