Where would a good Church of God leader be without claiming Satan is angry around Passover and Feast of Tabernacles times? That is when persecution, at least what they think it is, seems to rear its ugly head to thwart the "work" of whichever COG leader there is mouthing off about it. Truly the modern-day COG movement is the most persecuted church on the face of the earth today. Forget the Iraqi and Indian Christians routinely slaughtered for their faith. They are just so-called "Christians". Only true Christians can be in Bob Thiel's little cult.
So this brings us to today when Bob released his weekend end letter to his rapidly dwindling flock. Satan is angry and persecuting Bob and his family!!!!!! Oh, noes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dear Brethren and Co-Workers in Christ:
Greetings from Grover Beach, California.
Some years there are more trials before Passover than others.
For my family and the Continuing Church of God, this has been one of them.
Recently, I dealt with many of the CCOG related matters in the sermon: Hierarchical Governance and Corruption. But some still have been “speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after themselves” (cf. Acts 20:30).
Here is something from the Apostle Paul to consider:
15 To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled. 16 They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work. (Titus 1:15-16)
There are many false witnesses (cf. Matthew 26:60) and there are lot of people who seem to prefer gossip to accepting facts (cf. Proverbs 26:16,22).
Oddly, people claiming to be Christians even denounced the leadership of the Apostle John (3 John 9-10).
So of course, anyone who denounces Bob and his ineffective leadership is exactly like those in Apostle John's time. They are all liars and false witnesses. Pathetic!
The claims coming out of Africa are not from one or two people with a grudge. It is multiple people in multiple countries and yet Bob turns a blind eye to it all. How could he ever claim to have been wrong? How humiliating for the one true prophet of the one true church to be wrong!
Bwana Bob pathetically believes he is just like the old Worldwide Church of God that was routinely "persecuted" by false accusations, rebellions people under the sway of Satan
The old Worldwide Church of God faced various members and former members rebelling against it and making claims against it and its leadership. Trials and being spoken against are a long-used Satanic tactic–however, faithful Christians should be aware of Satan’s devices (2 Corinthians 2:11b).
As far as trials go, the Bible teaches:
12 Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; (1 Peter 4:12)28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. (James 1:2-4)
Fiery trials, including accusations by detractors, have happened throughout the entire church age.
That said, hopefully you are preparing for Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread striving for perfection consistent with what Jesus commanded (Matthew 5:48).
Bob is NOTHING like the old Worldwide Church of God. That church refused to ordain him and Herbert Armstrong would have kicked Bob out of the church so fast his head would still be spinning once Bob committed apostasy and rebelled against the church.
THIEL WRITES: But some still have been “speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after themselves”
You mean like Thiel did when claiming to be ordained a Prophet , to create a following after himself? To claiming to be the "One True Church and he is its authorized Pope, and many other strange things like Mayan and Catholic prophecies??
Boob, you really need to look real hard in the mirror and realize that the "Pot is calling the Kettle black"
Bob, I have a sincere question. Do you have any balls?
I have never seen a more weak dispassionate man than I see in you.
Do you ever take responsibility for anything?
Multiple people came to you to tell you about the corruption in YOUR church and you refused to listen to them. You instead turned it around them and accused them of being liars. What a sad situation!
Bob has desperately needed a "Come to Jesus" moment since he stepped foot into WCG. Now, he needs it even more as literal Satanists have made their home CCOG. This is why I have said many times that Bob would not know Jesus if he tripped over Him. Someone took offense to that, but this man has no idea Who he is claiming to represent. He plays mad libs with Scripture and has no shred of plain human decency for anyone, unless they are willing to kiss his ring and pay homage to his tiny, little doubly blessed toes.
Pride, Bob. Your pride has been your undoing, not Satan! Look honestly into your mirror Bob. You did this all by yourself. Don't blame the devil when you allowed him access to your flock.
They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him ...
Not one of them has ever taken in the homeless. Not one minister or member. All have denied the faith.
He said, she said.
Bob Thiel, Dave Pack, and Gerald Flurry and their followers should be rejoicing over the wonderful news coming from the Manhattan District Attorney today, but instead they are all preoccupied with their little piss ant Debbie Downer stuff that nobody really cares about anyway. Good news is so scarce these days and you've got to savor it when you can.
None of them have commented on how awesome the rain has been for the Southwest, either.
They should be happy about politically motivated prosecutions?
Bob...just a hint for production value. The next time you record yourself, SHUT THE DAMN DOOR! How unprofessional!.
I wish Ian were still around. I would love to hear his take on this situation!
Bob has absolutely no idea what real persecution is. He isn't being pressured right now. These problems are a result of his own inaction. He is inept as a real leader, something the military and his father could not instill in him. Bob suffers because he is weak. Bob suffers because he's turned his back on Jesus Christ. Bob deserves everything that is happening to him right now. How many more lives will he damage in Africa till he repents?
Bob, Satan only does what God allows him to do. You are being tested for a reason. Your view of Satan is not even biblical.
Truth does not evolve, but fiction does. That's why religions keep changing. It's no different today. All churches keep changing their interpretations.
5:48 ~ Our perception of truth does evolve with scientific discoveries and the more accurate collection of factual material. Religion begrudgingly keeps up with some of this, but often retains ancient superstitious elements and deliberately fails to evolve past them.
Yes you are so right. Bob should move to fantasy island
Lol he has no idea what he is doing. The only talented speaker he had was Sasha Veljic.
Bob represents the Church of prophet Bob the great hope of Africa
Bob has proven time and time again that he is a coward.
He's proven time and time again that he's clueless and lazy in that area.
Bob suffers because people are always picking on him. I feel sorry for him, even though he deserves some of it.
Time and individual reasoning can result in changes of some beliefs. But, Christ and Him crucified for the salvation of believers is the simplicity and easy yoke of Christ. That is what makes a Christian. That’s what matters.
