Ron Fraser has an article up on the PCG web site that discusses "miracles." Like any good COG leader Fraser and Flurry declare that miracles will ONLY happen in their specific COG. Miracles never occur outside any church that does not declare its self "Philadelphian."
By contrast, Gerald Flurry declares of the Philadelphians, comparing them to Elisha’s students who witnessed God’s many miracles, “God has given this Church so many miracles! I believe that with our increased understanding, God holds us more accountable than He did those students of Elisha. They didn’t have near the truth that we have. God has opened so many doors for this work!” (The Former Prophets).
Mr. Flurry then clearly articulates the reason why the Philadelphians are the recipients of God’s miracles: “Realize, if you’re loyal to God and submit to His government, He will perform miracles for you—great and small. … ASo there you have it. If you are LOYAL to Flurry then God will bless you. Blessings only come if you are following church government. Jesus nowhere mentions that, but that has never been an issue in the COG. G ! … If you’re backing God’s Work, you can expect miracles, because !” (ibid).
Of course it must be taken into account that most church members will NOT experience many miracles. Most of that is reserved for the ministry. They are to EXPECT miracles due to the fact they are a minister in the one and only true church.
God knows His creation. He knows we need a clear vision as to the direction we should follow to fulfill our reason for being—our incredible human potential. To this end He declares, “Where there is no vision the people perish.” Knowing this, God gives enlightened vision to His true ministers. As our pastor general has taught, “Philadelphia ministers must expect miracles” (Malachi’s Message).Since when has the PCG NOT snooped in peoples lives? Just look at the miscreant Cal Culpepper. He is a prime example of a snoop that is so nasty that he has led people to commit suicide!
Any minister of God truly worth his salt lives in daily expectation of miracles! Such a minister is not occupied with snooping around people’s lives seeking to dig up their sins. He lives to teach, counsel and instruct God’s precious sheep in how to overcome their sins and then fully expects the miracle of conversion that comes to any truly repentant sinner!
Jesus Christ’s method of ministry is one in which ministers “those who obey God (and the world, through God’s Work). God’s family government doesn’t go around looking for people’s faults and sins. God’s leaders search for ways to serve the people! That is God’s law of love” (Gerald Flurry, God’s Family Government).Apparently serving members is telling them to cut off contact with their adult children who are not part of the PCG. That is really serving God!
Fraser is delusional if he believes the ministry of the PCG is not be snooping around members lives.
Graceless religion cannot and will not produce any miracles. Death and destruction is its only reward.
