This is how Dave Pack and Bob Thiel think:
I’ll just say this. If what I told you does not apply, I, nor any minister I have ever talked to, has the faintest idea what on Earth, Christ was talking about. We just don’t know, and it’s just there for some reason that not a single one of two thousand ministers could have ever known in the past. But you can appreciate that, in light of what I said, if I’m right, you can understand why no one would have ever had a clue what it was talking about. They had no chance to understand. That, not until you had lived through three years of doing what we did and noticed that Paul went three years, and then maybe there’s one more year to go…This translates into:
Even though I do not know what I am talking about and even though I am 100% wrong, you must appreciate my trying.This is the sad state of thinking that pervades the church to this day. No one holds their ministers accountable. Various COG's never hold the obvious heretics like Pack, Malm, Flurry and Thiel accountable for their lies. "Oh, but they are our brethren, we cannot say anything bad about them." When they do not hold self-appointed liars accountable, then they too end up being lairs. Their inaction allows the hundreds of splinter groups to function today. It allows the sick deviate men to ruin member lives and they do not care. That is what we have so many fools running COG's today. Just look at Thiel, Malm, Pack, Wienland, Cox and Flurry. Can there be 6 more idiotic men in the Church of God today?
