There are many, many reasons why a lot of us on “Banned...” left WCG. One of the main reasons for my departure was that I recognized the SYSTEM was bad!
The WCG system was an imperial dictatorship. The system abused people. It betrayed them. It promoted lies. It was based on the end justifies the means.
I have varying degrees of respect for those who left that organization because they recognized the system was bad.
However, when I look at guys like GTA, Meredith, McNair, Flurry, Pack, etc, I see guys who loved the system. And they left it because they were mad that they couldn't be IN CHARGE of that system!
These lovers of the old system are not just the leaders of the wackadoodle COGs. These lovers also permeate the leadership of the supposedly more “moderate” COGs.
And most Armstrongite members are not aware of this because they don’t want to know. A lot of these geezers love fellowshipping with their old friends from the old days. Attending church services with other geriatrics is all they have to live for anymore.
Yes, Armstrongism is in a state of hospice. “Let’s just keep the patient comfortable.”
