LCG and COGWA: The Churches of Non-Brotherly Love

Two of the COG's most loyal and faithful churches claim to be the final repository of all things correctly biblical and believe they alone are God's most beloved church organization in this dispensation, are showing to the rest of the COG's how much they are NOT brotherly in their deeds and actions.  Two different Church of God's are meeting in the same location in the Philippines. Then add to that mess a third non-COG group that is also meeting there for their version of the Feast of Tabernacles.   It couldn't get any more messy than this!

Both of these splinter personality cults are meeting in the Philippines in the SAME complex, but in different rooms.  They have been encouraging to NOT attend with the other group.

Most of the larger church groups, however, are continuing to observe the festival separately - even at the same venue - the Living Church of God and Church of God a Worldwide Association are both meeting at Teachers’ Camp, Baguio City, Philippines, but in different halls. Sharing Village, a Filipino church group, will also be observing the festival at Teachers’ Camp.
Armstrongism has proven its self over the decades to be one of the most spiteful churches out there.  The heathen non-COG Christian in the world pale at times to the silliness of Armstrongite thought and practices. 

Several other cities around the world will be hosting simultaneous COG Feast sites.  None of these will gather in fellowship or even picnic together because of their shared heritage.  Bitterness, intrigue and a false facade of superiority is the preferred route of presenting their public face.  When truth only resides in the particular group it would be spiritual damaging and dangerous to let members make up their own minds as to whom they fellowship with.

Guru Eric King: NATO Is Heeding My Message and We Are Here To Help With The Ebola Crisis

“If humans were to be given an extending realm of peace they must collectively accept the reality of their condition and the current fallen state of their planet. They must admit their need for help. I have been given this message that humans could have a great age of peace and harmony but only if they collectively accept the SEVENTH MESSAGE. The SOCTteachings collectively make up what we call the 7th message” ~ E.W.King

Dingy Guru Eric is at it again.  He has written a letter to the world thanking everyone fore paying attention to his messages.
Nations Who Heed “The Seventh Message” will prosper!
~Positive changes in 2014
Here Mr. Eric W. King gives a strong and positive message regarding the current progress of the “Seventh Message”. The Seventh Message involves adhering to the teachings of SOCT and how they are positively effecting world peace. Please read and share!
Guru Eric let the United Nations know about his message which claims "education" is necessary to stop WWIII (which is currently going on.)

I will give you one guess as to where the "good leadership & good education" is going to come from....
What this world is lacking is Good Leadership & Good Education! ~
The Seventh Message states to the entire world; “Another world war may be the only hope…but a sad thing it would be. Global Sovereignty will stop world wars…nothing else can. This planet has been given a window to accept this message. The window opened on October 7th 2011. The United Nations is receiving this message.” ~E.W.King-
His new age enlightenment message says that the world needs to build new schools and find religious tolerance:
One thing that we here at SOCT have addressed is the way we must look at global education. I stated in a past article; “Once some stability is gained in the dangerous regions let us build schools. If we love all of humanity then we must truly teach the importance of religious tolerance and this must be taught from childhood up. If it is not then we will keep doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. I realize that education is very different in other parts of the world. Some children are blessed with great material and others with trash. We need to make proper material accessible to those whom we are trying to free from tyranny. Education is key!”~

“Proper education should be made available to everybody. This should be a global effort. Enlightenment starts with proper education. Stability -political and social- starts with people who have had a good education. Anant Agarwal (CEO, edX) stated; “Education should be available to everybody, just like the air we breathe.”—E.W.King
Next he thanks India for implementing some of his measures...through democracy.
We are extremely excited about India’s new growth and plans of economic development. We have stated that the more India sides with democratic operating systems they well get our support. India’s people are truly a ‘people of peace’. SOCT is honored to have many students located there. ~
Next Guru King states that he is deeply saddened by the lack of leadership from churches in stopping the spread of Ebola.  Never fear though, Guru King and crew are ready to step up!
SOCT has actually been saddened by lack of the so called “big Christian” organizations to help in the Ebola outbreak. SOCT is grateful to what Pres. Obama has done to aid in this tragic situation. SOCT students have been and currently are offering our help in this issue. ~
Guru King then thanks NATO for listening to his message and implementing some of it:
SOCT is grateful to the NATO alliance. These countries are heeding “The Seventh Message” in their collective fight against terrorism. Only by this cooperation will the Seventh Message usher in the needed time of peace for global stability. We would like to see Germany get more involved in this matter. The Seventh Message states; ~
 Guru King has went from Christianity to Hare Krishna to Seventh Day Adventist, to Armstrongism and now to New Age malarkey.    Divine intelligence is waiting for you in Guru King's cult:
“Part of our mission is to allow the laws of science to merge with social and moral development of mankind. We need to be brave enough to stop clinging to old belief systems which do nothing but harm ourselves and others. Most all humans have reached a higher comprehension level than the present ancient religions have to offer. Public morals and values need to be reevaluated. No matter what kind of sentimental connection we may have to old beliefs that don’t work, we must let them go. We thus begin to replace the old system with the new and more enlightened system.  We must now separate fact from fiction. Will you join us on this bold journey into a better way? Divine Intelligence is waiting for us to grow to the next step. Are we willing and able? All things are possible with Divine Strength.” – E.W.King
I think the best news of all is that he claims to have received requests to start teaching his message in the Middle East.  With any luck ISIS will welcome him with open arms and keep him.  Though I expect they will do much worse to Guru King and his followers than give them a welcome meal of cookies, dates and warm camel's milk.
SOCT students are stressing to leaders that they would like to see more public and open talks about funding some new educational program to help our fellow humans in the Middle East. The entire globe should be involved in this project. We need to open up doors for teachers to get involved outside the United States. We need to prepare children to meet the future with hope. We need to start investing in proper education for radical parts of the planet that need our help.”-

“Civilizations are not a biological achievement as much as they are a cultural achievement.  Because of this fact morals and values must be taught and handed down. Moral advancement will only come through and by proper education.”-

“Proper family and home upbringing should start now for those we wish to help. The function of the home is not to make sure that everybody is always happy but instead it is a school of its own which helps to insure the proper survival of the race and culture. This can only happen through proper education, both private and public. We need to train on proper thinking skills. It is taught in circles of psychology and ‘logic science’ that you cannot teach a person how to “think”. However, true and clear thinking is in fact a skill. True skill is taught and practiced and not something that comes necessarily as ‘natural’.”

“So again, “we” cannot go over to these Middle Eastern countries and drop bombs every time they get too “out of hand”. These people are humans like the rest of us. WE ARE ALL HUMANS! Why can’t we begin to help them become stronger through proper education? We all need to begin to develop a proper relationship. Why do we have the United Nations if they cannot understand this fact regarding education?”-

“What we need to understand is the fact that relationships are simultaneously tenacious and fragile. Proper human identity is what needs to be developed for true stability andequilibrium in all of our thoughts and actions. This will help us all to better understand the differing portions of our selves. We need to start calling each other HUMANS…plain and simple.” – E.W.King

Gerald Flurry: The PCG is FIRST After Jesus Christ!

In the September/October issue of Royal Vision, the chief narcissist of the Philadelphia Church of God, Gerald Flurry, makes the claim again that his book, Malachi's Message, is equal to the Bible and is spoken about in the Book of Revelation.  Even though Gerald Flurry plagiarized the entire book from Letters to Laodicea, by Jules Devraes, he still claims it as his own. 

“This chapter 10 [of Revelation] has been virtually overlooked,” Mr. Armstrong wrote in the February 1977 Plain Truth. “I did not comment on it in the earlier days, or expound it when I wrote this outline of the book of Revelation, or the full booklet on the Revelation.” Then he talked about the little book. He concluded: “The Apostle John in his vision is told to take the little book, which is open in the hand of the angel, and eat it up. How like Ezekiel’s prophecy!” It is very much like Ezekiel’s prophecy because both are talking about the same little book: Malachi’s Message. That book was revealed shortly after Mr. Armstrong died. This is a critical part of the Work in the end time because if you don’t understand the little book, you’re lost. The book of Revelation begins with God and then, in chapters 2 and 3, describes the seven eras of His Church. So the order of things is God first; then God’s Church eras, the firstfruits.
Because Flurry considers himself to be the greatest human man to ever have lived, right after Jesus Christ, it's only natural that he places his cult immediately under Jesus Christ in the hierarchy of the church.

God gives this Church a lot of prominence here and makes us realize how important this responsibility is! We must see the importance of this message. Jesus Christ is the Head of this Church. The God of Ezekiel is the one who became Jesus Christ. The God of Ezekiel 1 introduces the PCG first, after Himself. That is the supreme honor given to us. That honor is given only to those who do this Work in the “last end.”

Every single splinter cult of Armstrongism places themselves directly under the Jesus Christ in their power structures.  This myth is a carry over from the organizational charts that the old Worldwide Church of God used to publish.  Those charts seemed to surface every time a major church upheaval was happening.  The church used that power structure as a weapon to denigrate malcontents or divisive minister/members.  When people are rebellious they are not being submissive to the government that God has placed on the church.  

Church government and books written by various false prophets of Armstrongism are all used as weapons to subjugate their members.  Such things always remain constant in the Church of God.

Radical Leftist Meanies Will Soon Start Persecuting The Philadelphia Church of God

Someone is always out trying to get Church of God members and its leaders.  What other purpose could the church have than to be the scapegoat of big meanies so they can claim persecution?

Gerald Flurry whines:

We are facing problems today that God’s Church under Herbert W. Armstrong never faced. The United States is terribly different than it was before he died in 1986. It is ready to collapse, and it will shortly. The radical left is attacking conservatives with all sorts of lies. What do you think they will do about our message? Once they focus on us, it will be much worse, at least for a short time. I don’t know when that will be, but I do know we must pay attention to what God revealed through Ezekiel because it is for us in the PCG!

We have to believe Ezekiel’s prophecy: A storm is coming. We must go through this storm and thrive in it! We have the God of Ezekiel 1 right here with us! That is why the book of Ezekiel begins in this order: God is first—the top priority! Everything flows from there. Even the persecution God’s Church members face will have a positive side because it will cause people to feel ashamed when the world continues to unravel just as God prophesied. This will help them repent and probably many of them will become part of the great multitude (Revelation 7:9).  Royal Vision, Sept/Oct, 2014

Gerald Flurry Set To Announce British College Purchase in November/December Newsletter

The above ad was featured on the last page of  The Philadelphian, PCG's newsletter to its members.

More waste of tithe payers money in order to fund a monument to HWA and Gerald Flurry.  Why do PCG members put up with this?

Gerald Flurry: If Slutty PCG Women Don't Stop Wearing Their Short Tight Garments They Will Suffer The Plagues Of God!

Someone sent this to me regarding Gerald Flurry's scathing comments directed towards women in the church, students at his cult compound "college" and summer camp.

During his Philadelphia Youth Camp (pyc) sermon before the campers on July 9, 2005, Pastor General Gerald Flurry mentioned that some of our ladies and their daughters need sharp rebuke about their skirts and/or dresses because they are either too short or too tight. He tied this in with Revelation 18:4 and how God’s people have been called upon to come out of Babylon. Someone has to tell you, paraphrasing my father, if you don’t change your garments, you will suffer through the plagues of God.

Apparently Satan is busy trying to make all the women and young girls in the PCG into slutty whores:

Every year at the pyc, we encounter some problems in the way our teenagers dress—especially among girls. Satan is doing everything he can to get our ladies, both young and old, to be dazzled by sexy, slutty clothes. For some of our girls, it can be used as a way to attract attention from the opposite sex. Maybe it’s because they aren’t getting attention from a father. Maybe it’s because of their parents’ lax standards. Maybe it’s because of ignorance. No matter the reason, God’s standards in dress must be upheld.   Upholding God's Standards In Dress

Gerald Flurry: When You Sin You Ram A Spear Into Christ's Side.......

Dumb things posted on Gerald Flurry's Tumblr page:

God the Father handpicked you Himself. That’s so incredible it could make a person faint!
—  G. Flurry, Colossians booklet, p.8
When you sin, you ram a spear into Christ’s side. …If nobody else ever were to enter the Kingdom of God but you, Christ still would have subjected Himself to that gruesome execution.
—  Gerald Flurry, Repentance Toward God
Flurry's purchased of a condo in Jerusalem that is apparently directly tied to PCG members salvation!  Say what????????????  Talk about justifying spending hundreds of thousands of dollars so that Lil'Stevie can have a place to stay when he is visiting PCG students at the dig.
This work in Jerusalem is tied directly to our salvation and our reward in the Kingdom of God. We can’t think of it as being merely interesting or fun. Our being involved in what God is doing there has a lot to do with our salvation!
—  Gerald Flurry, The Key of David, p.125

Gerald Flurry Now On Tumblr: The Largest Purveyor of Porn on the Internet

Gerald Flurry thinks his message is soooooooooooooo important that he has now started hosting one of his sites on the Yahoo owned Tumblr.  While Tumblr is open to all kinds of sites it is one of the largest purveyors of porn out there today.

One of the most telling comments I've seen about Yahoo's acquisition of Tumblr appeared on Reddit last night: "lol someone actually paid for porn on the internet," wrote Redditor nhztgb. Meaning, family-friendly Yahoo is acquiring a giant purveyor of porn in buying Tumblr. It's an open secret among the Tumblr community that a, uh, healthy proportion of the site's explosive growth since its birth in 2007 has been thanks to NSFW blogs. In fact, Tumblr has officially had a rather hands-off policy when it comes to porn.  Crain's New York Business
In fact, there’s so much porn on Tumblr that they can’t even list all the results for blogs that distinguish themselves for being “not porn.”

Suffice to say that no matter what your kink is, there’s a Tumblr for that. College girls, high school dudes, foot fetishes, yoga pants – Tumblr has the full spectrum of porn covered...

Because purveyors o’ porn are some of the best digital marketers in the world, and they were early adopters of message boards, email, groups, search, etc. You name it – porn was there and there early. They get there first and scale it until it stops working. Thus it totally makes sense that they would be the first to adopt and proliferate inside of social, blogging, social blogging or however you want to categorize Tumblr.

So while Yahoo! might not worry about their porn problem, they do have an issue to deal with.   How Bad Is Tumblr's Pron Problem?

I guess we could say that Flurry's brand of cult nonsenses is porn also, spiritual porn.

A Father Protects His Family's Honor and His Integrity

A great story is on the Exit and Support web site for survivors of Armstrongism.  It is from the son of a former member who defied his minister and loved his family more!  It exposes yet again the blatant hypocrisy of the ministry of the Church of God.

Love of Sports and How My Dad Stood For What Was Right
My junior year was the beginning of the end for the WWCG and my family. The new minister was exactly like the old one, lock and step with the "church." His kids were arrogant and his wife was snobby. My parents didn't think much of them. My parents went to every one of my games since they felt if the ministers kid can play, it must be all right. I continued to get even better and was again excused from the Feast. Our second to the last game that year was against the minister's son's school. We destroyed them in a route. I had my best game ever! I had 4 sacks and 17 tackles, eight of them being for a loss! My dad was so happy and could not stop talking about it. Well, the minister's local paper told the story and come the following Saturday, unknown to me, my father was confronted by the minister about me playing on the Sabbath. I could see he was upset on the drive home and not much was said. I remember like it was yesterday when I walked by my dad's office Sunday morning and he was very upset with someone; my mom was sitting across from him. I was shooed away and the office door was closed. My parent's were in there for a long time, like hours!

It was two days later that my dad called all of us in the family room. He told us exactly what had happened as I did not know. The minister said it was wrong for my dad to allow a child to break the Sabbath and when my dad confronted him on his son, he said it was because his son had potential to play at the college level. Of course, my dad brought up the inquiries that I was having from colleges and that was quickly dismissed by the minister. He gave my dad an ultimatum (my dad was never a fan of ultimatums) and Dad did what had been brewing in his and Mom's heart for a while. They quit in 1986 and we were disfellowshipped or marked, whatever you want to call it. I know it hurt them to lose the friends they had and, as far as I know, no one from the "church" ever contacted them again.
That's the day I knew who my hero was. Not because of some game, but because he stood for what was right and protected his family and his integrity, both to which he held to deeply. We were not in the WWCG very long (big blessing!) and we don't have horror stories like others but I have to say it made our family realize what men can do with a Bible and their interpretations of the words within.
