A reader here sent the following observations and questions regarding how Church of God leaders portray themselves as great stalwarts of truth, yet when you check out the number of readers and followers, the numbers are minuscule even among their own membership.
I noted, for example, that Pack is on Twitter. Not too surprising I suppose, and 100% of his tweets consist of announcements of his stupid RCG videos.
.But one thing struck me as odd. His number of followers
Don’t they have some thousands of members? Then why does he only have less than 900 followers?
(Incidentally, browsing through his followers just to see if I knew any of them, a lot are obviously not members – some are typical automatic follower accounts, follower fishers (uninterested parties that follow solely in the hope of getting followed back) and such -- it’s probably less than 700 actual members that actually follow him, maybe even less.
Is he not considered important enough by all of the members to just follow him?
To me, that speaks volumes about his power even in his own church. https://twitter.com/davidcpack/followers Along the same lines....
Then there is David Hulme and his "Vision"
Hulme’s videos are posted on YouTube, where the average number of views is somewhere around 700-800 per video.

It’s more pathetic considering COGIA also has some thousands of members, you would think at least the membership would definitely view the videos to have a base line of at least that number of views. But apparently much of the membership can’t even be bothered to view them, so why would anyone else?
