Dave Pack: "Evil Men Will Post This Online"


Evil Men


The Headquarters of The Restored Church of God announced Monday, “If we are here on Wednesday, Mr. Pack plans…”


That did not happen, you believing dopes.


Since we were still here on Thursday, David C. Pack delivered “The Greatest Unending Story! (Part 417)” to a paid audience. In case late-comers did not know, the RCG staff are required to listen to Dave while on the clock during the week. Trust me, that is little compensation.


If we are here on Saturday, here is a summary of Part 417 from February 2, 2023:


The 1335 of Daniel began imperceptibly last Thursday.

The Kingdom of God arrives Tuesday, February 7.

The Great Tribulation starts on March 12.

The Day of the Lord is still March 22.

A mistranslation opened a can of worms.

Three Shepherds of Zechariah 11 are identified. Kinda.

The Series is over.

Evil men will post this online.



The most inflammatory comments were at the end of the Bible study.

@ 1:55:18 So, I'm expecting next Tuesday, and I know there are enemies among us who are dead men walking. Maybe you only need one. And they’ll post it to evil men. Don’t worry about it. It may shake some people. Don’t worry about it…it’s gonna go online. There are people, the wicked don’t understand and they’ll commit suicide in two seconds.


This intrigues and confuses me.


How is accurately posting a message of the gospel of the coming Kingdom of God that Jesus Christ commissioned to be spread to the entire world before He ascended to heaven be perceived as being done by enemies?


What actions or character qualities gain anyone the designation of being evil?


The information seeping past the front gate of RCG is accurate. Not rumors. Not distortions. So, how are David C. Pack’s own words an attack on David C. Pack? How can what the Pester General said to his church be an attack on his church?


Further confusion comes because Dave recently stated he WANTED this information to go public.


Part 414 – January 14, 2023

@ 1:25:10 Why would God show us Abib 1 in a definitive way? Absolutely inarguable. I don’t care what any enemy knows. I hope the whole world hears it.


And yet, when it does, he bitches and complains about it.


Perhaps the statement in Part 414 was uttered in the heat of the moment. He was either insincere or just lying. I do not know the man's heart, but based on his patterns, trusting him is a fool's errand.


David C. Pack is not a man of his word. And he is also prone to uncomfortable misspeaks.


Part 417 – February 2, 2023

@ 1:55:39 And just know that you’re we’re all the ones committing suicide. So, don’t worry about that. Once this is out, it’s gonna be interesting. Maybe it’ll be quiet. Or maybe we’ll find out there’s some reason the devil’s at my right hand when it all starts. I don’t know.


Leaving The Restored Church of God is viewed as suicide. The stubborn people who leave with their bad attitudes are perceived as having a death wish and lacking patience.


After listening to this statement about ten times, I finally think I get what Dave was trying to say. He meant to say, “The people who leave commit suicide while thinking WE in RCG are the ones committing suicide.”


His piss-poor verbal skills make nothing he says “plain” anymore. The Spirit of Error has infected his tongue along with his brain.



The 1335 days of Daniel 12:12 began last Thursday for the members of The Restored Church of God. The invisible, silent, intangible event signals they are blessed and “made it” if they have the right attitude.


@ 19:37 What you’re gonna hear absolutely confirms in every way that the 1335, now over a week behind us, is in play.


David C. Pack is not a goodman.


@ 1:20:34 “Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.” If you made it here over a week ago, that’s your status.


An enemy and evil man would want the members of RCG to believe this. Especially after everyone has already seen this cheap hat trick before.


Part 394 – September 24, 2022

@ 39:15 So, you’re blessed when you get to a day. At 11:33 tomorrow, you’ve made it. That doesn’t mean you receive eternal life. But you're not gonna wait 15 days to find out, "Oh, I guess we were blessed back there a couple weeks ago." That was always ridiculous.


Part 398 – October 10, 2022

@ 24:24 So, once you know the 1335, you could never know in any future year once you hit it if it were true. If it doesn't happen this year. It has to apply this year, or it's not a metric.


@ 25:31 If you’re at the Feast of Tabernacles, you made it!


Part 402 – October 25, 2022

@ 1:27:01 God’s will has been done. You made it to the 1335. The pledge is made on the (dare I say?) the correct 1335.


Part 403 – November 11, 2022

@ 1:17:18 We have not hit the 1335. It does not apply to us.


Part 406 – November 26, 2022

@ 43:15 Not when those sorta be blessed because, you know, they passed some mile marker they didn’t know they passed or hoped they passed. Or maybe their, “I’m blessed. Do you feel blessed?”


He is so bad at this even Simon Magus would be ashamed of his protégé.


I would not believe David C. Pack if he told me he was out of milk.


Part 417 – February 2, 2023

@ 1:04:01 So, I’m gonna make this plain. And is so doing, show you you absolutely were settled a bit over a week ago.


The wishy-washy 1335 never seems to get pinned down correctly, even when we are living inside it. When I left The Restored Church of God in March 2021, we were "in the midst" of the 1335. I told Bradford Schleifer and Dr. Timothy Ranney to their faces that I did not believe that because God does not operate with imperceptible fulfillment. I told them that, eventually, Dave would teach it had not started yet. Guess what?


Time proved me to be a true unordained non-prophet/non-psychic even way back then.


The people of The Restored Church of God are not "settled" no matter how often Dave repeats it. In the coming days, he will be forced to recant that teaching like he has done before. Do not be shocked when it happens. If you are shocked, then I fear for you.



Dave must be concerned about the brethren tithe-payers leaving in a continuous trickle. He makes a false statement, then immediately walks it back and walks it back and walks it back.




Part 417 – February 2, 2023

@ 1:48:22 Now, I should just comment and I'm not aware of people leaving since the 1335. It wouldn't surprise me, though.


This means Edward Winkfield forgot to tell Dave a key Headquarters staff person left last Friday on day 1334 of his imaginary 1335 that will be rescinded later. Or maybe Dave just forgot that insignificant detail.


@ 1:48:29 I’ve heard of some that had terrible attitudes and dropped out, sorta right as it came. One or two, maybe.


At first, he was unaware, and in the next breath, it was one or maybe two. When Dave says "two maybe," there must be more.


I know of two people who left in the last two weeks. A field member. A Headquarters employee. I knew them both personally when I was attending. Ask Edward Winkfield and Brian Jackson for confirmation.


I am sure the "terrible attitudes" had to do with Dave being a false prophet, addressed in Deuteronomy 18 and when retired RCG literature is quoted. The words of David C. Pack eviscerate David C. Pack.


The man is his own worst enemy. His mouth produces his biggest headaches, not other people.


The “terrible attitudes” include bringing up uncomfortable topics like failed dates and empty promises. Teasing the brethren that they made it, but oops, not really. Taking the Lord's name in vain. Doctrinal understanding sways like the breeze day to day. The man contradicts himself week to week. He says he would “never” and then does it. He admits God blinded him, he spoke presumptuously, and he taught the Kingdom of God would arrive every single month since June of 2022.


Bringing any of that up screams “terrible attitude” to the weak and cowardly “ministers” of The Restored Church of God. The days of oil and honey are over for those guys.



Dave rarely passes up a good opportunity for fear-mongering.


@ 1:48:37 But, here’s what it says to the 1335. So, just a caution in case we have people who leave. Who commit suicide in the next few days. Those going first must adhere. They must hold to the 1335.


@ 1:50:52 And you could still have people who drop out who entered the 1335, and they were not adhering to all the standards I'd been teaching in preparing a people for the Lord. So, the fact that somebody was here last Thursday at 10:07 in the morning and they're still here, or they dropped out after it (one or two), duddn't mean anything.


Members of The Restored Church of God: Do not listen to my words. Listen to the words of David C. Pack. He tells you precisely what kind of man he is. What he is. Who he is. If you get in trouble for quoting the Pastor General, take that as a clear warning as to the direction of RCG and the mindset running the show.


While referring to his new understanding of the 1335, Dave admits he has taught the Kingdom would come for six months. He cannot keep a straight face because he knows how absurd it is when he says it out loud.

Why six months of prophetic fraud and biblical negligence is fodder for a humorous moment exposes a sick and ignorant mind.


It is certainly no laughing matter for members eager to see their deceased loved ones, Dave.


@ 1:23:18 I wanted to believe at the end, "Well, the 1335 touch the day. It would be salvation." But I'd heard myself in all the other verses. It's just that, you know, if you think it's Elul, then you think it's Tishrei, then you think it's Cheshvan, then you think it's Kislev, it's surely Tevet. And then you get to, you know, along about the middle of Shevat, you wonder if that's the way it works. Well, yes, it is. Now I would never doubt again.


Oh, yes, he will. He will doubt and teach against the very thing he stands on today. He will be forced to because time always proves him to be wrong.


Watch his tune change before Tuesday morning. There will be something we missed.



David C. Pack is blind with his eyes wide open. His big pie hole will not shut, either.


Supreme Blindness Alert:

Probably…the Synagogue of Satan prepping the world to follow the wrong god who has a 10-day shelf life.


The shelf life of David C. Pack is known only to God. How long this can continue or what the end of these things shall be is unknown.


The people trapped inside The Restored Church of God are living in fear. Fear is the most common element present today. I hear it directly from those who reach out. I hear it from friends of friends.


How long can a church organization survive when that is the glue keeping people stuck to their seats?


People of The Restored Church of God: You are not alone. Leaving that corporate entity is not a death sentence. The Bible does not say this.


While you remain, do you feel a great sense of peace, or are you troubled?


Are you certain what you hear today will be taught tomorrow?


Do you dread the voice of David C. Pack or marvel at God's mind filtered through a trustworthy man's mouth?


What primarily motivates your continued attendance, love or fear?


That should speak volumes.


That should also tell you where the evil men really are.

Pretend COG False Prophet Has Another Melt Down Over Other COG False Prophets


Our most highly favored self-appointed prophet to the Churches of God, in this latter-day dispensation, got his holistic knickers in a major twist last night after he read an article on this blog about Wade Cox and his 2028 millennium prediction. Nothing infuriates a COG false prophet more than another COG false prophet making a prediction that they did not think of. When that person does the daggers come out swinging, labeling the other person a false prophet, and that "true" COG members should be wary of them. The dual-minded false prophet, Bob,  tries to bring Jesus into the mix to justify his words of wisdom, which is about the only time the Dude ever gets mentioned.

The great Bwana writes:

...There is no possibility that the millennium can begin before 2030. Wade Cox will be proven wrong on this. Certain events that Jesus pointed to have not yet occurred which render Wade Cox’s dates impossible. 

Just like all of Thiel's predictions are impossible. 

Some have been critical of me pointing out false predictions from people who claim to be Church of God, but who are probably not truly COG, but instead are false. 

Bob is not truly the Church of God and is indeed false! He self-appointed himself after Rod Meredith humiliated him and that did not sit well with Bob. After a couple decades of being ignored and made fun of by LCG leaders, Bob had to set on on his own. God, Christ, dreams, etc, had nothing to do with Bob's self-appointment. Only his vanity and supercharged narcissistic ego did that.  

My normal response to such is to mention how Jesus dealt with religious leaders (Matthew 7:15-23) and/or Laodiceans (Revelation 3:14-19). If the claims seem improperly prophetic or exceptionally bold, I tend to cite 2 Peter 2:1-3. 
Should we be concerned about false and heretical leaders? Should they always be ignored? Should we focus on the positive about them? What did Jesus do? What does the Bible teach? 

Absolutely! That's why this blog, The Painful Truth, and others regularly bring to light the lies of Bob. There is nothing positive about the guy when his ultimate works are evil to the core.  Providing laptops. seeds, animals, etc. to impoverished Africans is negated by the heretical lies he preaches.

Many people do not seem to understand what Jesus was really like and what He really taught.
While it is true He taught, “love your enemies” and to “pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you” (Matthew 5:44), it is a misunderstanding to believe that Jesus taught that one could never point out the problems of religious enemies (and yes, we should still pray for them).

The Great Bwana then went on to quote Jesus when he is describing deceptive men like Bob Thiel in the Church of God:

Jesus often taught to beware of religious leaders. Notice:

15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness! (Matthew 7:15-23, NKJV throughout unless otherwise indicated).

Elijah Ben Thiel continues:

False leaders do not produce good fruit. Many of them tend to encourage lawlessness (though they would almost all deny that). Those that follow them risk being cast out by Jesus. 
Notice that Jesus is saying to look at their fruits and that even if they appear to be doing miracles in Jesus’ name, if they promote lawlessness, they are not true Christians.

This may look all appropriate as what Jesus said, but what Bob is actually doing here is setting you up for him stating later on that HE and only HE is doing a fruitful work in this age.

The Great Bwana then has to drag in Norm Edwards once again as an instrument to justify his prophetic mantle and his asinine dreams. Norm Edwards is no more a source of godly wisdom and truth than Dave Pack is, but as long as Norm's words can be twisted by Bob to justify his dreams then, Hell yes! Let's use him!

Consider the following from former GCG board member Norman Edwards:

Eph 4:11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 
1Th 5:19-21 Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. 
1Tim 1:18 This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare, 
1Tim 4:14 Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. 
2Tim 3:1-2, 5 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be… lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 
Do people today have faith that God is able to prophecy through people in their congregations? 
1Jo 4:1-2 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 
Note: If there were no true prophets, there would be no need to “test the spirits”—because every prophet would be a “false prophet”. But because there are both true prophets and false prophets, we need to “test the spirits”. (Edwards N. Need Prophets More than Prophecy. Shepherd’s Voice, Fall 2013) 
So, do not be quick to consider the good to be bad. If you truly have God’s Spirit and really strive to be a Philadelphian Christian, you will actually believe that God’s word says there will be prophets and dreams from Him in the last days per Acts 2:17-18

The Great Bwana ends with this:

Do not follow false teachers. Do not presume, however, someone is false because an accuser of the brethren lumps him/her in with the false. 
Remember, the Apostle Paul wrote:

19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not despise prophecies. 21 Test all things; hold fast what is good. 22 Abstain from every form of evil. (1 Thessalonians 5:19-22) 
So, in addition to avoiding the bad, do not overlook the good.  
Have your really tested all things? 
Or have you relied on traditions and feeling?

Bob is a false teacher. He quenches the spirit by forcing his followers to observe old covenant laws they don't need instead of following the ONE they should be following. Just look at how Bob's leaders in Africa slobber all over him when they mention him. Jesus is no more a part of their conversations than the New Covenant is.

Bob has been tested and found wanting!  The Living Church of God members understood this as did Rod Meredith and 99.97% of the COG membership!

If you have bad feelings about Bob then there is justification for that. Stay away! Far away!

The COG Tradition of Appropriating Prophecies Intended for Israel


Is It Appropriate to Appropriate Prophecies Intended for Israel?

Alright, so you've demonstrated that Armstrong's brand of Anglo-Israelism is NOT consistent with Scripture, but what about America as a type of Israel? After all, didn't the founders of the United States see themselves as God's "chosen" people? And didn't they regard themselves as planting a "Christian" nation in the wilderness of a new "Promised Land"? Isn't it reasonable to assume that God would hold the United States and its leaders to the same standard that he instituted for ancient Israel and its leaders? Haven't the English-speaking nations of the world embraced Israel's Bible and been its greatest proponents around the globe? So, isn't the entire question of whether or not the English-speaking peoples of the earth are the physical descendants of Abraham irrelevant?

Herbert Armstrong and his followers have traditionally regarded Anglo-Israelism as the key to understanding Bible prophecy. Indeed, they think that this "understanding" gives them a "prophetic advantage" over all other Christians! Moreover, these folks have used this teaching to justify their focus on the English-speaking folks of the earth! Hence, we should not be surprised that Armstrongites would be extremely reluctant to give up something which has proven to be one of their trademarks - one of the things that has set them apart from the crowd!

However, it is as they say: extraordinary claims demand extraordinary evidence. In order for someone or something to by a type of someone or something, there must be some clear and convincing parallels/similarities between the two. Hence, it is entirely appropriate to point out that the United States is very different from ancient Israel. To begin with, there are the obvious differences between a Bronze-Iron Age, agrarian-based economy and a modern, industrialized, technologically advanced nation. The big differences relative to size of the population, territory, and military power of the two nations is also rather glaring. Likewise, Israel was an absolute monarchy with a state religion, and the United States is a democratic republic which has eschewed the establishment of a state religion. Israel was a party to a formal covenant/agreement with God and was subject to the terms outlined in the Torah, and the United States is governed by a constitution which is more in the nature of a contract/covenant between the people and their government. Israel was subject to the imperialism of its much stronger neighbors throughout its history as a nation, while the United States has actively participated in the Imperialism which engulfed the Western World in the 19th and 20th Centuries! Israel was guilty of idolatry and breaking the terms of their covenant with God, and the United States has been accused of killing its unborn, tolerating homosexuality, and racism by its critics. In other words, there are some very profound differences between the ancient nation of Israel and the modern nation of the United States!

What about the similarities in the religious and political leadership of ancient Israel compared to that of the United States? Aren't the abuses of power, lying, hypocrisy, wickedness, and bad examples exhibited by the leaders of ancient Israel also present in the religious and political leadership of the United States? Yes, but couldn't we characterize the leadership of every other country on the face of the earth in exactly the same way? Moreover, very unlike ancient Israel, the people of the United States can periodically vote to remove their leaders and replace them.

In terms of the Hebrew Bible, we should also point out that the entire Western World has adopted that book! Hence, the suggestion that the United States and other English-speaking nations are unique in this regard is shown to be absurd. Indeed, Christianity has the MOST adherents of any other religion on the face of the earth! Also, in this connection, we must not forget that Judaism is an active religion, and that a nation of Jews named "Israel" currently exists within the boundaries of the ancient nation of the same name!

I would also point out that one of the primary rules of biblical interpretation is CONTEXT. How do we justify taking something that was clearly addressed to a particular people in a specific time and place and applying it to someone else in another time and place? Moreover, if we are serious about trying to find a place for the United States in the context of biblical prophecy, isn't the Babylonian/Beast system of the book of Revelation infinitely more appropriate? Take a look at Babylon as a prophetic template and let me know what you think!

Dave Pack: We are in Serious Dilemma! All of our literature is wrong!


UPDATE: On March 9, 2021, I posted this about Dave's ongoing lies and how almost all of RCG's literature was then obsolete. Here we are in February 2023 and the lies continue unabated. Jesus still has not returned. Dave's material is still outdated. No great secret of God has ever been revealed. Every time Dave opens his mouth he discredits himself, invalidating any previous words of wisdom.

We are in a Serious Dilemma!

From an RCG source:

This is perhaps one of the more shocking quotes I have seen in the series yet. I would ask that the Website team post this on the homepage somewhere just so new members understand that nothing they read is actually what the church teaches. This is a long quote but stay with me!

All the RCG material on the “Gospel” is wrong in Dave’s eyes. (This was discussed for years while the series was going on, some small changes were made, but now it’s obvious to church members). In effect, God needs to use material filled with lies and inaccurate information to get people into His TRUE CHURCH. 

An important question for the members of RCG, “Does an all-powerful “God of Truth,” need to use lies and deception to get people into His organization or True Church?” If so, then where is the Biblical precedent for this? Especially, when Christ is “the Way, the Truth, the Life”? 

At the judgment seat, could you imagine God or Christ condemning people for deceiving others, when they themselves actually deceived people to get them into the church?

Dave states at the end of 294:

“Finally let's imagine that the kingdom of God did not come this year. Let's imagine it. This church is in a serious dilemma, and I want you to think about it. And I ran it by a half dozen ministers, and here are our options, because all of our literature currently teaches that the kingdom of God is built the way my Baptist father-in-law believes, Christ comes and builds the kingdom. All of our literature is written that way. Now here's option "Number One," Ready? Let our literature say that and it's FALSE! I've written, I don't know probably a million words about the gospel. I've got to alter those. When would I do it? We can't let it go out. It's not true! So that's option number one would just let it stay there out of the question. 

Option "Number Two," withdraw all of our literature on the subject of the gospel. The Awesome Potential of Man, What's the Kingdom. What's the True Gospel, How World Peace Will Come. And all the booklets that I wrote years ago that had been so productive. Hundreds of millions of our pieces of literature have gone out, just withdraw them and never talk about the Gospel again? Well, that's a problem because we have an open door in front of us and nobody can shut it! So we wouldn't be expected to do that. So neither of those options are realistic. Here's the third one. God says he wants to come as a "thief", as a "snare." He does not want the world to know it. He wants a little group to know it. So then what do I do? Rewrite the literature and tell the world what it appears. God does not want them to know? That's option "Number three," that doesn't sound like a very good option, but we'd have to do something, unless God revealed this extraordinary mystery that has been this series right before he intended to solve the problem Himself. Because here they are, again, leave the literature that's up--it's wrong! It was "a present truth." Mr. Armstrong taught things that were wrong and he taught all the other doctrines of God correctly. We believed them. We held to them, but I no longer could. What would our ministers counsel people who were reading booklets that are wrong? "Well, this was actually wrong, but we need to understand it should say this." Well, they'd say, if I were a prospective member, like I was 55 years ago, I'd said, "Well, why hasn't it changed?" Or the alternative? Remember, second alternative? Just cancel all that literature and never talk about the kingdom of God. Well again, no one could consider that a viable option.

And the third one is start rewriting it. Now that would even take a while. And then we would do, because the Work is booming. Make no mistake. We are booming right now! I've never seen anything like it! And we're poised to do big stuff. So what would we do just sit on that we're wonderfully positioned to explode! But then we would be telling people what God doesn't want known. So, there was no box on that list where you could check "none of the above." You got to go one of the three ways. Now I never mentioned that as a metric because I never thought of it as a metric until I came to understand the "mystery of God" is that the kingdom of God arrives in a totally different way than anybody we or anybody else ever thought.

But it's a "fact" and you've heard the proof. So the only solution it seems to me is that the kingdom has to come, or I got to choose one of those three things because I'm not going to sit back. Our "reserves are," I mean, you just can't believe how well we're doing. We never done this well! We're 22 years now and I mean, we're not going to go build more buildings. There's no time for that. What would we do? We have a wonderful staff. We don't have to spend time hiring more staff. We're well positioned. We're poised, we're oiled. We could go out and do a much bigger work, but the problem is we would be disclosing a secret God does not want it out. I don't know how I could do that in good conscience. So, God speed the day! It looks like our weight is very short for one more reason. And the "Mystery of God" has gone away in a greater way. For one more reason. Good night.


Dave Pack: When your minister lies to you about the return of Jesus Christ…you need to be patient.


IF Wednesday


David C. Pack of The Restored Church of God did not have a good week.


Monday, January 23 @ 10:04 AM ET

Tuesday, January 24 @ 10:05 AM ET

Wednesday, January 25 @ 10:06 AM ET

Thursday, January 26 @ 10:07 AM ET

Thursday, January 26 @ 11:35 PM ET


This list does not include Friday, when a key Headquarters staff member resigned as an employee and church member. This rivet popping from the hull of the RMS Wadsworth is the second departure since November. Kudos to the lay members who act while the hirelings do nothing.


Marvel when you realize this was not David C. Pack’s biggest fail streak in a week. July/August 2022 was no fun for him either when Av 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 7 all turned up to be business as usual.


The David C. Pack Wall of Shame grows longer on the landing page of When Tammuz circles around again, the design layout will need to be updated. Maybe Kevin Denee’s company can help with that.


As you have discerned by now, this is not a review of the surprisingly good Jenny Ortega series, “Wednesday,” streaming on Netflix.


RCG Headquarters issued an update on Monday to calm the nerves of the brethren when Dave was a no-show on Sabbath to bestow Special Comments. He must have had nothing special to say. And that is quite the feat from the man who doodies in the toilet, not in his pants.



Monday, January 30, 2023


Dear brethren,


We hope this finds you doing well. 


If we are here on Wednesday, Mr. Pack plans to lay out some more corroboration that we were right and that we really do need patience. Everything is still on track.


Warm regards,


Church Administration



“We hope this finds you doing well.”


How could anyone NOT be doing well after being strung along all week to then hear silence over the weekend? Three days of not knowing what the heckfire is going on would put anyone into a “well” state of mind.


Either nobody had the courage on Sabbath to walk up to the lectern to fill the air with more false assurances, or the Packian Triad of Fraud was simply out of ideas. The result was the same. Let the brethren stew while wondering why salvation did not come.


But should they really be wondering by this point? The obvious answer is staring them in the face.


No Part 417 this weekend was a blessing to the brethren at Headquarters. I remember that sigh of relief when you realize you can eat a meal in peace and go home at a reasonable hour on the Sabbath.


It could have been worse. Enduring yet another condescending 3-minute sweaty stammering about how great things still are from Meat Shield would have been nothing short of maddening.


Silence is golden at Headquarters.



“If we are here on Wednesday…”


See why there was no need to rush reporting this? My calendar claims today is Wednesday. As expected.


The last Pathetic Update ended with, “…any hour of any day works." The saddest people on the face of the earth are the members of The Restored Church of God expecting David C. Pack to get anything right.


No man knows the day and/or the hour. The Father knows. Even by accident, David C. Pack cannot figure out the day for the coming of the Kingdom of God. Whenever he suggests a day, know for sure it will NOT come on that day.



“…more corroboration that we were right…”


More past-tense future-fulfillment corroborations. More “being wrong” means “being right” insanity.


David C. Pack is going to fail his whole way into success.


David C. Pack is going to teach errors along the path to truth.


David C. Pack will be proven wrong so many times it will result in being right.


Sound thinking has fled from Headquarters.


The corroboration could mean that the February 10/11 (Shevat 20) Big Deal is back in the spotlight. This is 40 days before Abib 1, which is the fallback to the fallback. When that does not pan out, be prepared for a Passover-Unleavened Bread reimagining.



“…we really do need patience.”


David C. Pack and the enablers at Headquarters have weaponized patience. They have corrupted the use of godly character and misapplied it through exploitation.


This is evil. What is going on starting at Headquarters is evil. Evil.

They need the brethren to be silent, gullible, naïve, witless, and blind. That is not being patient.


If your parent beats you, do you ignore it because you need to be patient?

If your spouse commits adultery, do you put up with it because you need to be patient?

If your friend is addicted to drugs, do you stay silent because you need to be patient?

If your child is stealing from you, do you pretend not to know because you need to be patient?

If your teacher is molesting you, do you keep it a secret because you need to be patient?

If your boss is not paying you, do you keep working because you need to be patient?


When your minister lies to you about the return of Jesus Christ…

When your minister has other ministers deceive you…

When your minister swears falsely using God’s name in vain…

When your minister twists the words in the Bible…


To endure such things with inaction is not a show of patience. It is willful foolishness.


That is not biblical patience. That is patience weaponized for the gain of men.



Everything is still on track.”


Members of The Restored Church of God, this is David C. Pack pissing in your face instead of against the wall. This is a mental and spiritual affront expressed without shame in hubris because he knows you will accept it with a calm, docile smile.


If The Restored Church of God and David C. Pack were "still on track," Jesus Christ would have returned on Friday, August 30, 2013.


Or on January 23, 24, 25, or 26 of 2023.


If we are here on Thursday, will you continue to listen to the vile filth David C. Pack teaches?

If we are here on Friday, will you continue to do nothing except sign your tithe check?

If we are here on Saturday, will you continue to support an organization of biblical fraud?


Why continue to attend a church that lies, deceives, corrupts, manipulates, threatens, and patronizes?


Maybe you are just being patient.

That Other Crackpot Prophet Claims Millennium WIll Be Here In 2028

One thing is for sure in Armstrongism, there is always a crackpot self-appointed prophet of god lurking in the wings to step in and share their hidden knowledge. No matter how wild, crazy, or foolish that assumed knowledge is, they know for a fact the date of the millennium, the return of the creature they call "Christ".

This time it is not Dave Pack, Gerald Flurry, or even God's most highly favored servant, Bob Thiel. This time it is that other crackpot prophet, Wade Cox. Cox was the original crazy COG leader before Pack, Flurry, and Thiel hit the scene with their weirdness.

Check out his timeline below:
