PCG Cal Culpepper Continues His Scorched Earth Policy and Helps Decimate the Elizabethtown PCG

Cal Culpepper is one of Gerald Flurry's storm troopers that has wrecked havoc every where they have assigned him. His previous assignment in Buffalo, NY wrecked havoc on that congregation.He and his wife are intensely disliked by many in PCG who are afraid of them and afraid to speak out against them.

Culpepper had his issues when he was in Pasadena as a student.  He thought he was God's gift to the church and the women on campus.  He worked in the Auditorium for several years and was found to be condescending and elitist to many who worked with him.

Exit and Support has this letter about him:
May 5, 2014
The Elizabethtown PCG has been eliminated due to declining membership and Culpepper casting out members and their families. The congregation did not have enough tithe paying members attending to "justify the expense" of a church area. What is left of the members in Kentucky have to now drive to various PCG congregations including the Indiana one (4-5 hours one way) and the Ohio one (3-4 hours one way). [See Feb. 17 letter above: "More Control and Hypocrisy in PCG." --Anonymous 

Previous PCG run ins with Culpepper are documented here: Control and Abuse By Cal Culpepper

I knew most of the members from the Buffalo, NY congregation. There is a dear elderly widow, formerly of that congregation who was treated horribly by the so called ministry, under the direction of Cal (Diotrophes) Culpepper, then kicked to the curb and cut off from all of the members there, except for me and my husband. I was not about to abandon her, and shame on those who did! How dare Calvin Culpepper and Aaron Eagle1 treat her the way they did! She is so thankful that we didn't cut her off while we were still in the Philadelphia Church of God. She was so depressed and distraught over all that happened to her. It just sickens me!
That is just one small example of the control and abuse in PCG, especially by Cal Culpepper (Regional Director of Northeast U.S). He has a very long list of victims, from the Southeastern U.S, to the Northeast and the Midwest. I was very fooled by him when he first came to the Northeast. He appeared so righteous, at first. But as time went on, God revealed to us many things about him that most members are blind to. The self-righteousness, pride, vanity, lack of agape love, mercy and compassion of this man became very apparent. The way he mocked and smirked when I answered him with things straight for the Word of God helped us to see that he didn't know the Scriptures very well because he didn't recognize these things. He would assume, jump to conclusions and falsely accuse, and when you answered him with the truth, he still insisted that what he thought was true! It was mind-blowing to us! Why we didn't stand up to him more strongly and allowed him to persecute and abuse us for 3 1/2 years is now beyond me.2
Did you know that every word that proceeds from Culpeppers mouth comes directly from Jesus Christ?
 We had swallowed the whole "this is church government" garbage. Gerald Flurry and Cal Culpepper both claim that every word out of their mouth comes directly from Jesus Christ.3 That is not true of any man! Jesus Christ does not lie or falsely accuse, so there is no way that is true! These men have deceived the members into believing that they have to obey their every word. They are looking to men rather than God! These men are not the Master Potter. We belong to God, He knows those who are His and no one can snatch them out of His hand. [John 10:28]  Control and Abuse by Cal Culpepper
There was a woman in the DC congregation that had cancer. She wasn't well at all and had missed about 3 or 4 Sabbath services. The minister called her(he knew already that she was sick with cancer; in fact he had anointed her) to talk about her missing services. She told him she was feeling a little better and would come the following Sabbath. He told her the only way she could return was if he and Cal Culpepper came and counseled with her because she had missed so many services. Well they arrived about two months later. She died within the same week they visited.  PCG Is A Sick System! 

Three PCG families forced to get rid of their teenage children because of Culpepper's edicts.

Three PCG families were forced to give up their minor aged, unbaptized children under the direct orders of Cal Culpepper. The information on his forcing members to give up their 15 and 16 year old teens is accurate because I spoke to these people first hand. Abuses I Was Aware of in Philadelphia Church of God

God's most perfect minister and his wife cut off contact with her family because they are members of UCG.

Tammy Culpepper cut off her elderly parents (whom I think were in United Church of God) per Flurry's orders. Then when her father died, their family flew to Oklahoma to show everyone how righteous and wonderful they were. Culpepper had the nerve to stand there at Sabbath services and tell us how one man told him what a beautiful family he has, with so much pride it wasn't funny! Did he really think people thought he and Tammy were righteous for not honoring her parents, not having love and just showing up after her father's death?? That is how the PCG is. Cut off your family and show up looking so righteous and see what inheritance belongs to you when they die. This way Flurry gets more money.

While the deluded citizens of Edmond heap praises on Flurry and his mini-me auditorium his ministers are making life a living hell for PCG's members.

Poor Buffalo New York!

Not only does it have one of the most miserable of winters every year, it has had to endure two tenures of the most FREAKY and NARCISSISTIC ministers ever in a local area...

Cal Culpepper

A local church can become unviable in size and these things do happen. Why can't the congregation create a "living room" church as a satellite congregation. Driving 8 hours on the Sabbath is certainly not "rest". Problem for controlling groups like PCG is they do not like the idea of a group not having "an ordained minister" around for traffic control of peoples thinking.

AN ANAGRAM for Cal Culpepper...
"Upper Pelvic Clan" in other words ... KRAP!

If Gerald Flurry is arrogant enough to call himself the things he does, and Stephen Flurry is arrogant enough to pose as a leading elder and college administrator without a shred of qualification, and if Wayne Turgeon is arrogant enough to think that marrying into the boss's family is sufficient for the privileges he's had showered on him, then it's no wonder that dictators like Cal Culpepper assume the authority they do when given the opportunity.

PCGers know where the doors are. If they don't want to use them, so be it.

Excellent work. Hopefully, in a few years, Culpepper can successfully eliminate the remaining congregations.

I went to Big Sandy with Culpepper our freshman year and he was an arrogant SOB then. Didn't cross paths with him again until he came here to do a funeral for my PCG member ex-brother-in-law and the self righteousness just dripped from he and all the other PCGer's, as they purveyed all the lessor COGer's..

Probably the saddest thing that happened was his complete indifference and no regard for my niece and nephew, as he preached their "perfect???" father into the kingdom. Even when my niece collapsed on her father's casket, Cul=pecker just ignored her and stated he must be going to more important things. What a joke!!!

Every time I read about someone claiming to speak for their god, I automatically think of a Bible story:

"On an appointed day Herod, having put on his royal apparel, took his seat on the rostrum and began delivering an address to them. The people kept crying out, "The voice of a god and not of a man!" And immediately an angel of the Lord struck him because he did not give God the glory, and he was eaten by worms and died."

C'mon worms, where are you when we need you?

Ah, the joys of cult living.

Just tell Culpepper that Gerald Flurry is a false prophet under the death penalty from God and watch his reaction.

Yes, the GREAT PHAROAH GOD CALVIN CULPEPPER was trying to get my attention at one feast. He even came and stood at the end of the row I was about to sit on, glaring at me. I saw how he was so controlling to his wife and kids. One member witnessed his eyes rolling back in his head with just the whites showing while counseling her at her home.
I'm telling you, Gerald Flurry does not care anymore (not that he ever did). He has his Taj Mahal (Great Concert Hall AKA Armstrong Auditorium) there in OKie dokie (tornado ally),which attracts people with substantial wealth,along with his handful of loyal family members, what else could you ask for?
Gerald Flurry always said God calls his elect his "jewels", which Gerald Flurry has interpreted as only GF's handful, (because of course, jewels means only a handful), according to >THAT PROPHET"<'s interpretation of this scripture)...
And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Malachi 3:17
It all about He and His!

Several years ago, on original CSI, one of the crimes on which the team was working was framed in the world of Sado-masochism and bongage. This topic was explored, addressed, and treated for the benefit of the home audience. At the end, Gil Grissom, who then headed up the department, revealed the final secret. He said, "In reality, the submissive is the one who controls the situation."

And, this is true in sado-masochistic churches, as well. The bondage continues just so long as the submissive ones permit it to go on. Since Armstrongism is not a real church, but is actually a delusion or illusion based on lying testimony, half-baked theories, and very poor research, the submissives have the ultimate say as to whether these cults continue on, or cease to exist.

It is all a matter of having the common sense to know when to leave. Though the transition involved can be painful, it would really be in the submissives' best interests if all of the ACOG ministers were just like Cal Culpepper. Probably most are. They've just learned to mask their true personalities.

LOLLL...Yea, just watch his eyeballs roll back in his head (when the demon enters), THEN the demon takes the form of Herbert W. Armstrong, (because he IS Flurry's God), and starts pounding the lectern shouting out obscenities aimed at Gerald Flurry...
HWA...."Gerald, you Asshole, how dare you run around acting as if you worship me and all the time telling folks, "HE WAS RIGHT!"
"You edited my "Mystery of the Ages", my masterpiece inspired by God Almighty. You did this after you revealed how Joseph Tkach or Junior, (whichever one you are referring to as the "anti Christ",in which you were always vague about that), did this themselves..."You HYPOCRITE!" "I am pronouncing a curse on you, no make that a double curse, no make that a time times and half a time of a curse, no make that curse but withheld 2520 years...oh hell nevermind, I'm so mad and dead it doesn't matter anymore. But to hell with you anyway!!"

I have known people with the eyeroll reflex and often didnt realize how often they did it. Not sure where it comes from but they all did it at regular intervals, like blinking (but not as frequently).

I know Callus Cullpepper and everything people have said about him here is true. He is a self righteous condescending asshole when he was in Big Sandy and later when he went to Pasadena. There the ass got an even bigger head thinking he was something special in the sight of God and the College. He is one sick guy that does not acre for members under him and will trample all over them in order to make himself look good in Gerald's eyes. Aaron eagle is no better. He to is a self righteous condescending ass. Just like Callus he is despised by many in PCG.

If I had to guess, you're all describing a sociopath.

DennisCDiehl said...

Profile of the Sociopath

Glibness and Superficial Charm

Manipulative and Conning

They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.

Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."

Pathological Lying

Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.

Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt

A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.

Shallow Emotions

When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.

Incapacity for Love

Need for Stimulation
Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.

Callousness/Lack of Empathy

Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.

Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature

Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.

Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency

Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet "gets by" by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.

Not concerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.

Black Ops Mikey said...

Dennis, you mean that he's so mediocre that he's only a sociopath and not a full fledged psychopath?

Given his cluelessness, you may be right.

Let's just agree that he's antisocial and leave it at that -- no use splitting hairs.

Meanwhile, as I turned on my television early this morning and mistakenly switched to the local ION channel, there, in all his bumbling glory, was Gerald himself -- complete with his HWA wireless rims and his now-unparted, swept back HWA mane of white hair.

Ugh. I scrambled for the remote, when suddenly he went into one of his eye rolls that must have lasted 10-15 seconds. Right on camera. I was fascinated, ended up watching for a little longer, and then realized that in that minute or so that I'd been watching, he said absolutely nothing coherent.

A poor imitation of HWA, and a ridiculous caricature of himself. How anyone watches this guy, let alone listens to anything he has to say, is beyond me.

Byker Bob said...

Somehow, even when I was a church member, I just never understood why some people thought HWA was worthy of imitating. Certainly, there were some cool people roughly from his generation, like maye Robert Johnson. But, seriously, can anyone in their fondest imaginations imagine Herbert W. Armstrong strapping on an old guitar and playing "Dust My Broom"???

Cullpepper is a nasty, nasty prick! I went to a funeral he preached, or should I say lectured. He was disgusting.

One of the saddest things about PCG is that children and grandchildren of current or former members are caught up in this cult.

Most young people are computer literate enough to find out the truth about PCG. Why aren't they?

"PCG Cal Culpepper Continues His Scorched Earth Policy and Helps Shut Down the Elizabethtown PCG"

It has been said long ago that Flurry's PCG is a cruel hoax that epitomizes the tyranny of Satan, and that each lying, slandering, local tyrant gets to pass off his own satanic abuse as the "government of God."

While always using Herbert W. Armstrong's name and photograph and pretending to be faithfully following him, Flurry's PCG has somehow always managed to edit, change, warp, mangle and pervert virtually everything that HWA ever tried to teach.

PCG members now cut off and dishonor their parents, drive endless hours all over the Sabbath, and worship not only some runt but that runt, and all on top of their usual, regular sins such as bearing false witness against other members and committing adultery.

Gerald Flurry's counterfeit, impostor PCG cult has been ”turning the hearts of the fathers AGAINST their children, and the hearts of the children AGAINST their fathers” since December 1989.

Cow Cultpecker set across from me in my living room next to Marvin Campbell.
Cultpecker looked at me with just the whites of his eyes showing. The first time he did it it freeked me out, I thought, did I just see what I think I saw, then he did it again. I had never seen anything like that outside a Hollywood movie. My thoughts were, I should go into the kitchen and see if I had any garlic cloves. This guy is spooky.
When Mr. Campbell was told of this he said it was a sign of demon possession.
Another ex member told me of this happening to him.
