Gerald Flurry Declares Fast To Coerce His God Into Giving PCG More Money

This weekend the dwindling faithful of the Philadelphia Church of God are fasting in order to coerce their god into opening the financial floodgates so money can pour into the church. While people are trying to blackmail their god into action, Flurry is spending  hundreds of thousands of dollars on a 144 month inspection of his plane.  One estimate I was sent states it could cost around $475,000.00!  PCG has suffered financially since buying this money pit, and now they are ripping it apart and making costly repairs and updates.

Declaring a fast for money is a time worn Armstrong Church of God tradition and yet NOWHERE in scripture is there any example of people fasting for financial gain.  It was always for personal examination.  But then this may be PCG's excuse to fast.  It is the members fault that money is not flowing into PCGs coffers.  One must always remember everything that goes wrong in a ACOG is the fault of the membership and NOT the self-appointed idiotic leaders leading the groups.


You can quickly see why PCG is in such financial trouble when you see the basic costs to operate a Gulfstream G450.

Thank you for your posting on the Plane Truth About Flurry Finances. Evidently there is a huge Gulf between Apostolic Ego and common sense

I don't understand the title of this article. How could anyone coerce Satan into giving PCG more money?

LITTLE Gerald “That Runt” Flurry is a BIG spender of Other People's Money (OPM).

The money came easily to little Gerald: He simply stole it, in spite of what the biblical book of Malachi said against stealing tithes and offerings.

The arrogant and malicious local goons that Gerald Flurry set up as fake ministers, elders, deacons, and other creeps in his PCG cult got a fiendish delight out of gossiping, lying, slandering, and kicking out innocent people who did not go along with all of their endless perversions. Gerald Flurry's local tyrants forgot that the amount of money the PCG steals from members needs to exceed the amount of money that Gerald spends on toys for the Flurry family.

Maybe all those old sex maniacs, sex perverts, and predators in the PCG cult can dig a little deeper in their wallets and purses to financially support their predators' paradise. All take and no give has made them a bunch of unprofitable old fools.

Why are they whining now about the costs to operate the G-450. Back in the 80’s the budget for Herbert’s G-3 was approximately 1M. It was reported on this blog several times the approximate costs for operating a corporate jet. I seriously doubt fasting is going to ease the burden of owning this bottomless money pit. This is what Jerry coveted, now they can pay the piper.

Peanuts compared to the ongoing and ultimate costs of supporting a satanic imposter cult like the PCG.

Does everything get stripped out at the 144 month inspection? Flurry's jet looks like a car left out on the street overnight in downtown Detroit!

I can't wait until God declares his 144 k inspection.

From a purely business standpoint, in theory the reason for purchasing a jet would be that it would generate additional growth and income. I honestly believe that Flurry looked at this acquisition as an “If we build it, they will come” situation, meaning that the jet would open the door to world leaders. But, it didn’t. HWA had a quotation which covers what is now happening to Gerald Flurry. When HWA used this quote, he always attributed it to an old black man: “If your outgo exceeds your income, your upkeep will be your downfall!” There is much wisdom in that.

I have several relatives who own high dollar antique cars. If one of them left such a car to me, just maintaining it in restored condition would eventually consume my resources. Now a ‘40 Ford, or a 396 SS El Camino would be in keeping with my means, and would provide the level of entertainment consistent with my comfort zone. But, what do I know? I enjoy beer and rock n roll, not Dom Perignon and Beethoven.

What Flurry really needs is his own version of a Stan Rader. Unfortunately, it’s already a little bit late for that!

I guess the 144,000 would have to wait till the 144-month repair is completed.

This is really good thing for the people stuck in PCG. The faster this thing drains their money, the sooner they will realize how much they have been duped.

This is a painful but necessary process every person must go through to correct their mistakes. I just hope the people stuck in PCG don't suffer too much before they learn from it.

God be with them and open their eyes to the truth.

Maybe Pack can get his hands on this jet after "three men die very badly this month", I think Flurry is supposed to be one of them... oops that was soooo 6 years ago...

The Croesus-like budget for Flurry's Executive-Jet & grand lifestyle is assured!

Armstrongites are Brainwashed

"“If your outgo exceeds your income, your upkeep will be your downfall!” "

So what did HWA do? Guilt, bully, threaten, yell, and intimidate the income generators to assure that the upkeep was less than the income generated. A formula splinter leaders try to replicate (and some fail at).

But according to a recent post, most members are stuck in the church because of the no contact rule. If they leave, their family will treat them like a leper. The JWs have the same rule.

BB I remind you that Herb was constantly living beyond his financial means. He called it living by faith. The result was him constantly begging for more money from his members. So he didn't live by the upkeep will be your downfall thingy.

You mean pay the Gulfstream. It's not a Piper plane. Lol.

Gordon Feil said...

Byker, no version of Stan R. would mitigate this problem. I mean, does Gerald seem like someone who would take that kind of advice? If a throwback to the past is needed, perhaps what it is a receiver.

Anonymous said...

Gordon, there may be a parallel. Stan Rader had control over HWA because he knew "where the bodies were buried." He could have broken HWA if he chose. That's how he negotiated a large severance package when he left.

In PCG, there are a very few insiders who could destroy Gerald Flurry if they chose. Those are the people to whom GRF panders the most.

Byker Bob said...

All good points about Herb and Stan.

My only further comment would be that smaller scale charlatans need to fleece their flocks to a much more unconscionable degree in order to pretend to live and function in Herb’s valence.

If anybody out there thought that we who graduated from Herb in 1975 were angry, imagine the level of anger of Flurry and Pack’s future graduates! Don’t think I want to be around to witness that!

Doesn't it just make you sick when you go and look at how much it costs for one of these things, let alone the cost it requires to operate it?

The major problem in these churches has been the propensity to follow the model of a man in spreading the gospel so-called, versus the model Jesus gave. They prefer to do it from an easy chair, which is not the way Jesus said it would be done. If you want to look at a model of spreading the gospel correctly, one that was absolutely the antithesis of the way it is being done today, just look at the Apostle Paul. Sorry ministers, but it is going to require a little suffering.

I have to come to believe whole-heartedly that this is why these groups do not grow. They circulate people but do not grow in numbers. In fact, we are seeing a decline in those numbers.

If they keep approaching it from an unbiblical model with the use of fancy jets, 4 million dollar TV studios (United), etc..., then they will continue to approach their lay members with requests for prayer and fasting to bring in more income and continue to have failed results because of it.

Let's take a look at what it will take in the end, to spread the true gospel.

Revelation 11:3-8 (KJV)
3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

Now that's a gospel spread that gets noticed, especially when you are killed for it.

They are trying to be Mini-Me's without HWA's marketing skills. Plus they have too much competition for the same shrinking pool.
HWA lite - you have UCG and COGWA. HWA medium - LCG. HWA deranged - you have both RCG and PCG.
Buffie - you have CCCG - or whatever BT calls himself - and Malm.
(If you don't know who Buffie was - read The Tangled Web - free download.)

Plus all the other offshoots from GTA, home groups, etc.

That Gulfstream is one expensive toy, a toy that will probably be what bankrupts Gerald Flurry's little kingdom. Maybe he should get a head start and rename his church The Bankrupt Church of God.

Regarding Gerald Flurry's No Contact policy, here are a few relevant things that Dr. Phil McGraw wrote:

The number-one weapon of abusers in general is isolation.

You cannot give them power over you, because they will abuse it and you.

No amount of psychobabble can excuse bad behavior.
