PCG Expecting Summer Camp Attendees To Rat Out Life Back Home


Anyone who has ever been to SEP under the auspices of the Worldwide Church of God, regardless of where it was held, usually found it to be a fun time, Sure, for some, it was tough being away from home for the first time, but the experience tended to be fun.

Ever since the implosion of the church summer camp has continued on in various splinter groups. Most have them today except for the little personality cults like the improperly named "continuing" Church of "god" and Ron Wienland's geriatric group.

Anyway, the boys in Edmond posted a story on their site about the upcoming summer camps. These are the three things that campers are expected to do:

1. Prepare now for your prayer life at camp.

At S.E.P., you will hear a lot about sharpening your prayer life. More than likely, you will hear about prayer notebooks, and be given lists outlining basic subjects to pray about in your life and in the Work of God. Prepare now to refine the quality and length of your prayers before, during and after camp! Pray now that the pyc experience takes your prayer life to even greater heights! 
Do you struggle with stirring up the motivation to pray? We can all struggle with that at times. I am reminded of a statement I heard from Evangelist Alex Harrison in a sermon several years ago. “Don’t feel like praying?” he said. “Tell that to God! Ask Him for the desire to pray.” Pray that God would give you that desire to pray to him now as well as during S.E.P.! Let God know if you are struggling in this area. He is not intending to beat you down. Show Him you want His assistance, and He will help you! 
Set specific goals now for your prayer life at S.E.P.—goals for length in prayer, goals for focused quality of prayer. There are so many different facets of S.E.P. that you can be praying about now so camp this year can go that much more smoothly.

Prayer was always encouraged at SEP and the Orr camp had prayer closets in each dorm. Campers on Friday nights usually had a Bible study in the dorm going over some weird WCG booklet, but, this was not the main focus of the camper's time at camp. It was building friendships and discovering new things you might never get to do when at home. Imagine being a 12-year-old and having to focus on the length of prayer and the supposed "quality". The past church teaching of one-hour prayers was a load of crap. No member ever did that successfully, especially the ministry. One of the best prayers ascending to God's ears is a single word like "Help!"

2. Prepare to spend time with the ministry. 

God’s ministers are a key part of His Family; they help edify and unite that Family (Ephesians 4:11-16). Don’t let a day go by without making some contact with a minister. This will be a unique opportunity for you at S.E.P.: to be surrounded by so many ministers. Most Church members never get to have that. So take advantage of it! 
What should you talk about? Tell them about your life back at home, your congregation, what you are looking forward to the most at S.E.P., and what your goals are in life. They would love to talk to you—if you overcome any barriers and give them the time.

This is even more odious for campers to deal with. Too many stories are floating around out there about PCG  ministers being abusive pieces of crap toward the youth of the church.  The ones about PCG ministers in Edmond forcing campers to run in 100% humidity to some passed out and then forcing them to get up and run some more. No child heading off to summer camp expects to sit in front of some dickwad and have to squeal about life back home. This is what the Chinese Communists do to their children. Turn your parents in for not following the program. 

Also, what 12, 14, and 16-year-old really has their life planned out as to what their goals are in life. Just surviving 2-3 weeks with COG Gestopa agents on their ass is their #1 goal.

3. Prepare to forge strong friendships. 

Camp can be nerve-wracking for some—coming from far distances to a strange land, meeting unfamiliar people. But we are all tied together by a common mind and goal! Camp director Wayne Turgeon said the pycmindset is about leaving “problems, fears, worries, concerns behind and really embracing God’s way of selflessness, outgoing, flowing, giving, concern and sacrifice for three weeks.” So forget yourself, and be outgoing to your fellow brothers and sisters at S.E.P. A lot of campers may not have many, if any, friends their age in their congregation. Plan to build friendships that will last longer than camp itself, and then keep in contact with those who do not have close friends their age in their area. Plan to use this S.E.P. to sharpen the iron of your friendships (Proverbs 27:17). 
Come to S.E.P. to have fun. Come to try your best at every single activity. Come to pull yourself out of your comfort zone and try new things. But come chiefly with a mindset of building the Family of God. Come with a mindset to get to know the ministry, and to get to know your fellow brothers and sisters that much better. 

Seriously, dude? Seriously? Come with a mindset of building the family of God? When their own ministers and local church members are some of the nastiest people on earth why would anyone want to come to camp to expand that kind of family? God certainly is NOT part of the program.

Many who have attended previous camps say that S.E.P changed their lives. It can change yours too! Many Armstrong College students will tell you that the main thing that motivated them to apply for college was S.E.P. That’s true for me as well. Seeing God’s way of life put to practice here for those few fantastic weeks as a camper was more than enough to persuade me to apply for God’s college. Seeing the Family of God being built at camp is an awe-inspiring sight. But that building begins now—before camp even begins. So prepare now to do your part in building the Family of God at camp, and I guarantee you, you will have the best S.E.P. ever!

May God have mercy on these poor children's souls! 

Philadelphia Church of God Embraces Michael Flynn


One thing the more aberrant Churches of God revel in is finding validation for their aberrant teachings in sometimes far-right publications and personalities. The more salacious the news the more it fits into their end-of-the-world scenarios. Eager to see a world around them severely punished for their sins, because they and they alone have been the most pure practitioners of Christianity since the first century, these self-righteous peddlers of conspiracy theories and outright lies of false prophecy channel their superiority by any means possible even if it means coddling up to less than credible personalities.

The Philadelphia Church of God has an Executive Speaker Series in their Armstrong Auditorium located on the fringes of Edmond, Oklahoma. Currently, the only "executive speaker" listed is Michael Flynn. Flynn started a traveling road show last year that fed into the disillusionment of many conservative Americas shocked at the collapse of society around them through corrupt politicians, wokeism, and rampant crime. 

Regardless of where you are on either side of that fence, people know there are serious issues going on in this country and that is what excites Armstrongists like Gerald Flurry. They see these issues as a sure sign of the collapse of the nation similar to the fall of Rome. As long as these things fit into their narratives they will use worldly men and women and so-called Christians while denigrating them behind their backs,

At this moment in time, the Philadelphia Church of God has found its useful champion, Michael Flynn.

Michael Flynn, United States Army lieutenant general (ret.) and former national security adviser, will visit Oklahoma on Monday, August 21. He will deliver a public lecture at 6 p.m. at Armstrong Auditorium, on the Herbert W. Armstrong College campus in northern Edmond, a suburb of Oklahoma City.

Flynn’s lecture is sponsored by the Philadelphia Trumpet newsmagazine and its “America in Crisis” campaign, which features lectures focused on solutions to the crises facing the nation at home and abroad.

“General Flynn’s perspective is extremely relevant to Americans concerned about the direction of our nation,” said Stephen Flurry, Trumpet executive editor and host of the Trumpet Daily podcast. “We hope to raise awareness of the solutions to these many problems through educational lectures such as these.”

With more than 33 years of service in the United States military, General Flynn’s career culminated in his becoming director of the Defense Intelligence Agency and the nation’s highest-serving military intelligence officer. After retiring from the Army in 2014 and as a private citizen, General Flynn went on to serve in a variety of business, educational and non-profit roles. As an expert in national and international security, General Flynn is a prominent commentator and sought-after speaker on military and global affairs.

Flynn's Christian outlook is entirely based in evangelicalism, which to Armstrongites is anathema to their core beliefs. How quickly they overlook that as long as certain points fit their narrative.

It will be interesting to see what Flynn says in his talk Monday night, August 21, 2023, and whether or not the local press in Edmond is there to report on it.

He stirred up a huge stink this past week when he said the "Jews were willingly given to the Nazis and there were no guards" there to stop them from leaving.

The Jerusalem Post had this to say:

Former Trump adviser blames Jews for dying in Auschwitz
By JERUSALEM POST STAFF Published: AUGUST 16, 2023 18:10
Michael Flynn, a Christian nationalist who previously served as US national security advisor under Donald Trump, said that Jews were willingly given to the Nazis and said there were no guards.

Former Donald Trump adviser Michael Flynn blamed the Jews for the deaths of all the children who died in the Auschwitz concentration camp during the Holocaust.

Speaking at an event in Michigan at the beginning of August, clips of which have gone viral over social media, Flynn, recounting a trip of his to Auschwitz, said that mothers "willingly" gave their children over to the Nazis' trains to be shipped off to Auschwitz.

Flynn said that mothers would have essentially let their children be packed into the trains "like a sardine."

Later in the article:

However, his words about the Holocaust sparked backlash from the Auschwitz Memorial Museum in Poland, which described the flaws behind Flynn's accounts. 

We can be guaranteed that Gerald Flurry will report on Flynn's speech in glowing terms and as proof, the world is in serious trouble. It will also be interesting to see if there is a backlash at words spoken during this speech and if PCG will suffer any consequences. If there is, the PCG will claim it is the persecution that is spoken of in their Bible.

Becoming God Dilemma In Armstrongism...When Does It Happen?

At a first glance, Armstrong seems to have an orthodox concept of God. However, he declares the doctrine of the trinity to be pagan and teaches instead that “God is a family, a kingdom, NOT a limited trinity”. This family consists currently only of God the Father and the God of Abraham, who later became Jesus Christ, the son of God. But God’s intent, Armstrong teaches, is to reproduce himself. All children of God will eventually become God as well, who “will counsel and advise our Creator”. This is very close to what the eternal progression in Mormonism expresses but it goes to an even greater extreme. Herbert Armstrong's Worldwide Church of God

One of the semi-unique myths of Armstrongism is that it teaches that humans will become God as God is (Mormons teach the same thing). It was hounded into us by Herbert Armstrong, Rod Meredith, and that king of buffoonery and deception, Gerald Waterhouse.

What a glorious time it will be when the Kingdom of God gets here! Only true Church of God members will instantly become God by some magic event that never really gets thought through by most in the church, let alone its leadership.

The scenario goes like this. Endlessly being persecuted, the true church members will flee to Petra to receive final training for 3 1/2 years so that when they become God so they can rule with rods of iron while dishing out a little mercy here and there along the way.  

When that magical kingdom arrives, the greatest of the church leaders will sit at Jesus' right hand (like Herbert Armstrong, Garner Ted, Bob Thiel, Dave Pack, Rod Meredith, and Gerald Flurry). 

Lesser COG members will be part of the hierarchical God structure ruling over galaxies, worlds, planets, cities, and nations while under the control of men like Abraham, David, Jeremiah, Isaiah, Ezekiel, and others. 

Of course, none of these will be women as it is an established fact in Armstrongism that women cannot rule. Even though they will become God just like the manly men, their womanly god parts will not allow them to be in charge unless it is overseeing things like bakeries, restaurants, and home interior decorating ministries, as all real COG women know their place was in the kitchen and keeping their home looking nice for their soon to be God husbands.

That all sounds glorious to church members who have always been the lesser than's of society where they have lived on the fringes. Becoming greater than their enemies, high school rivals, bitter relatives, and nasty neighbors were going to be the ultimate reward!

But the niggling question remains, WHEN will all of those chosen humans in Petra become God? Will they receive power as humans when the 3 1/2 years are up?  

Will they be instantly transformed into God at the snap of God the Father's fingers or Jesus's? 

Will they instantly die and be resurrected as God's in "the twinkling of an eye"? If that is what happens then what is the point in having God the Father around anymore since the likes of Bob Thiel, Gerald Flurry, Ron Weinland, and James Malm would be on equal footing? What is the point of Jesus and the Holy Spirit?

Or, will they be translated into some kind of superhuman because they did not die? Herbert Armstrong said, "No human will be given any government office." They must be a divine being or God as God is.

Armstrongism makes no sense when you really get into it. But, I am sure many will say otherwise...

Butthurt False Prophet Has His Delicate Sensibilities Hurt By This Blog...Again


It's another sunny day in California and the tubes of butthurt ointment are flying off the shelves in the Grover Beach/Arroyo Grande area.

The Great Bwana Bob Mzungu does not like the fact that we mock his narcissistic arrogance when he claims that most COG folk are too stupid to know when they are to flee to Petra/Pella or where ever Bob's highly esteemed group will be heading for 3 1/2 years of abject misery.

He writes:

Most Christians Will Not Flee 

For posting about matters related to the Maui fires and fleeing–and in which I warned that many would scoff (see AP: At least 55 people died on Maui. Residents had little warning before wildfires overtook a town)–we were mocked by an anti-Church of God website. 
Now, mocking from scoffers there happens frequently, but is consistent with the following warning from the Apostle Peter:

3 knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” 5 For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, 6 by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. 7 But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 
8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:3-9)

Anyway, not to be deterred by critics, after we were mocked for teachings, in another Maui related post (see VOA: Questions Remain About Maui’s Warning System; COGwriter: Discounted Scriptures Give Clues Why Most Christians Will Not Heed the Coming Decree to Flee), I had the following:


Wilkins Christian Radio Kicks Bob Thiel To The Curb

Satan continues his devious rampage against the greatest Church of God ever to exist in Sabbatarian history.

If you remember recently how Bwana Bob Mzungu was getting in a homeopathic frenzy about all the radio stations he was going on with his hilarious radio program, you might remember the Wilkins Radio Network was mentioned.

Either Satan has been busy or readers here sent them letters explaining that Bob's so-called church is actually a false church and has no business being on a Christian radio network. As a result, butthurt ensued.

The Great Bwana to Africa and 100 Caucasians writes:

As referred to before, despite having a signed one-year contract that did not expire until 2024, Wilkins Radio network cancelled broadcasting our Bible News Prophecy radio program a couple of weeks ago.

COG7 Members in Africa Being Conned By Bob Thiel's False African "Leaders"

The Great Bwana to Africa Bob Mzungu Thiel is all excited over a recent letter from his so-called "evangelist" in Africa regarding his latest antics in Rwanda:

Evangelist Evans Ochieng is in Rwanda to meet with the the leaders and the brethren there. He sent the following in an two emails today:

Pastor Dr Bob,

Greetings from Rwanda.

I’m discussing many things with Moise right now. We are still touching many subjects concerning the law of God, The prophecy about rev. 11,12,13, 17,19,21 and 22. We have touched Isaiah 66:17-22 also I’m explaining to him about after Armstrong, now who is to lead the church. And {what} do we believe?  In the afternoon I will talk about God’s ordained feasts and and reasons why they must be observed now. {Many in} the Church of God Seventh Day here are against Moise so I must give him Strong teachings that can make him to stand and to teach. …

We are still in talks with brethren here from different congregations. My main aim is to teach this leaders first to know more about church of God and know exactly what to teach brethren.


Evans Ochieng is trying to persuade African Sabbatarians from COG7 that Bwana Bob is the greatest Church of God leader to ever exist! He is so magnificent that he is the one true successor to Herbert Armstrong! Praise be!

Ochieng never mentions that Herbert Armstrong would have kicked Bwana Bob Mzungu Thiel's rebellious behind out of the church so fast his head would be spinning. Bob is everything Herbert Armstrong ever spoke out against when it came to deceivers trying to destroy the church. Even the Tkach's pale in comparison to the lies of Bwana Bob Mzungu! 

I feel sorry for these African Sabbatarians who most likely want to be what is right regarding their beliefs and are instead being conned and lied to by Ochieng about who is to lead the church. Also,  he is continuing the con game that old covenant laws are more important than following Jesus and the New Covenant. Instead of directing followers to Christ, he seeks to enslave them with the law.

I hope the Church of God 7th Day wakes up and warns against the lies being promulgated by Bwana Bob Mzungu and Evans Ochieng.

The Deep Roots of Armstrongism In Adventism


Armstrongism has deep roots in Adventism that so many splinter groups deliberately choose to ignore when they claim to have direct apostolic succession from the original 1st-century church.

Note: this is NOT an endorsement of Grace Communion International, but it also should NOT be discounted because it is from them. Dan Rogers is far more accurate than the current Church of God history myths floating around various COGs today.

COG Absurdities: Men, When Your Wives Are Rebellious, Spank Them!


Back in the 50s, husbands did a lot of things for which they would be arrested today. In my working-class neighborhood, it was common for a guy to get drunk after work and then beat his wife after he got home.   

I remember hearing an old sermon tape where Rod Meredith related that some WCG ministers actually spanked their wives! (RCM received the nickname“Spanky” because of his obsession with spankings.).

I don't remember Rod naming those ministers who spanked their wives. Does anyone in Banned know which of these WCG leaders practiced corporal punishment on their wives?

Backward Thinking


Backward Thinking

Lonnie Hendrix

Folks who have been following the comment thread for my last post (Trying to get out from under the weight of history), know that I criticized CGI for permitting a sermon on Anglo-Israelism to be delivered to one of their congregations (Jeff Reed’s Atlanta, Georgia congregation). Although Jeff personally assured me that he was surprised by the sermon and explained his objections to the message to one of his members, the sermon still managed to get posted on CGI’s Facebook page and main website!

This kind of double-dealing, however, is typical of my interactions with the upper echelons of CGI. Privately, the leadership expresses their distaste for Anglo-Israelism and headline theology, but they continue to provide an official CGI platform for those within their community who support those views. Moreover, they justify this blatant hypocrisy by insisting that they are trying to keep the peace and to be “tolerant” of views which they don’t necessarily support. I call it trying to have your cake and eat it too!

The sermon, Forward Thinking, was delivered by an independent COG elder named Jim Eason. To be fair, Mr. Eason begins well. For the first fifteen minutes (or so) of his sermon, he talks about the centrality of the message about salvation through Jesus Christ to the overall message of Scripture. Unfortunately, at that point in his message, he begins to decry the fact that most Christian Churches aren’t focused enough on prophecy. More particularly, he noted that NONE of the mainstream churches are preaching about Anglo-Israelism. Even worse, according to Mr. Eason, is the fact that the ACOG’s aren’t focusing more attention on these teachings.

In typical Armstrongist fashion, he begins with the promises made to the one who would eventually be known as Abraham in the twelfth chapter of Genesis. Elder Eason then proceeded to list the promises which Abraham’s descendants would eventually inherit. Predictably, the sermon then shifted to Joseph and his two sons: Ephraim and Manasseh. Of course, he went on to identify the United States as Manasseh and the British as Ephraim.

Like Herbert Armstrong before him, for Mr. Eason this is the key to understanding prophecy and current events. He went on to say that his audience wouldn’t hear this important message in any other churches (meaning mainline, traditional Christian churches). Next, he read from the first chapter of the book of Isaiah and insisted that the passage perfectly described the current condition of the English-speaking peoples of the earth. He went on to talk about the time of “Jacob’s trouble” and suggested that those same peoples would shortly endure incredible sorrow and suffering. He said, “There is a judgment coming on the nations of Israel” (including the United States).

Even so, Mr. Eason ended on a note of hope – insisting that God would eventually restore these nations to prosperity and power. He concluded his message by saying that we (the ACOG’s) need to be “shouting” this message to the people of the United States. Indeed, he insisted that this is “an important part of the Gospel” message; and that “if we aren’t speaking about it, then we aren’t preaching the Gospel.”

Now, to Mr. Eason, all of this sounds like “forward thinking.” However, for those of us who are familiar with the history of Armstrongism, it sure sounds like backward thinking to many of us. And, for those who would present CGI as a more progressive and intellectually honest manifestation of “The TRUTH,” all of this sounds an awful lot like that old-time religion of Herbert Armstrong. Moreover, if you really have accepted the fact that Anglo-Israelism has been thoroughly discredited, how can you continue in good faith to provide a platform for it?

John Brisby Sinks to Another Low: Calls His Members "Mentally Retarded"

From a COGE source:

In the race to the bottom in the wacky world of Armstrongism the dark horse, Jon Brisby, of the Church of God the Eternal, presented another outlandish sermon (Love vs. Tolerance) in which he spends an hour lecturing his congregation to not just be tolerant of their particular splinter's brethren, but to go a step further and "love" them. Not like those heathen Sunday churches do with their "worldly love" of feeding and sheltering the homeless or strangers, but rather love your brethren with the love that was divinely revealed to Herbert Armstrong... towards the end of his sermon at the 1:06:00 mark he laughingly calls his entire congregation; mentally retarded. Yes, mentally retarded. If I were lecturing my flock, I might have chosen different words, I would have maybe chosen to quote the Psalms and tell my congregation they are fearfully and wonderfully made, but that sounds an aweful lot like those Sunday preachers, wait a minute, maybe there's something to those Sunday churches, and their love, that Brisby is trying to scare his followers from. No in his eyes his congregants are all retards to fund his lavish lifestyle. However, it does make you question the mental state of his splinter group that would stick around after being called a retard from the pulpit.

Brisby's record of "Godly" love includes: counseling a man to divorce his wife to protect his finances, telling happily married people to separate because of his perceived idea that their marriage isn't legitimate, telling his followers not to seek medical attention, and die a preventable painful death. Yes, this is his example of love, of the god he serves. It is no wonder his church is rapidly shrinking.


Crackpot False Prophet: We are not into "inflicting torture for conversion"



I cannot imagine what a miserable life the Great Bwana Mzungu Thiel must live that he has to constantly find fault in everything around him. Everything pushes the buttons on this little guy. If only he put as much energy into being a follower of Christ as he does in his looney conspiracy theories and alternative news items. What more can we expect though, after all, he is a self-appointed Church of God minister.

His delicate sensibilities got into a twist over an R.E.M. song, Losing My Religion, and an article in Christianity Today. As we know by now, anything Christianity Today publishes sends the Great Bwana immediately to the bathroom medicine cabinet for that huge tube of Butthurt Ointment.

Losing Our Religion review … 
13 August 2023 
In his new book, the Rev Russell Moore opens a chapter, “Losing Our Authority: How the Truth Can Save”, with the words “Jesus Saves” … 
Moore is mindful of history, and the roles Christianity has played: “Parts of the church were wrong – satanically wrong – on issues of righteousness and justice, such as the Spanish Inquisition and the scourge of human slavery.” He is editor-in-chief of Christianity Today, a publication founded by Billy Graham. Losing Our Religion offers a mixture of lament and hope. In places, its sadness is tinged with anger. In the south, the expression “losing my religion”, popularized by REM in a 1991 song, “conveys the moment when ‘politeness gives way to anger’,” Moore explains. Losing Our Religion review: Trump and the crisis of US Christianity

The the Great Bwana Muzungu Thiel adds: 

Before going further, let me point out that the true church was the persecuted not the persecutors in the Spanish Inquisition–true Christianity has never been militaristic nor into inflicting torture for conversion, etc. 

That may be true of true Christians but not so of Armstrongite Christians.

The structure of government in Armstrongism was militaristic with the Pastor GENERAL leading the ship. It then coopted biblical titles like evangelists, pastors, elders, and deacons to take the place of Major Generals, Colonels, Majors, and Captains.

While most of the time the church never inflicted physical torture, it certainly was well-versed in psychological torture with intimidation, manipulation, gaslighting, censorship, isolation, public shaming, humiliation, and sexual abuse. All of these were tools used in the so-called conversion process of followers. The carrot constantly dangling at the end was the loss of one's salvation for any infraction.

Mental and spiritual torture sady is the name of the game in Armstrongism, especially in the aberrant splinter groups like the Restored Church of God, Philadelphia Church of God, and the improperly named "continuing" Church of "god".

It is no wonder well over 150,000 members have come and gone over the decades in Armstrongism. It has been unable to feed ht souls of people. COGs cannot hold on to their youth and longtime members leave in disgust. What did or does it have to offer to anyone anymore?

Depressed? Suicidal? Then Join The So-Called Continuing Church of God!


Our favorite crackpot self-appointed Church of God false prophet has been on a roll lately dumping his sermons online as if they were a solution to humanity's problems.

Never once in his little sermon summary below does he mention finding peace and rest in Christ, or even following the dude, as inconvenient as it apparently is to Bwana Mzungu Thiel. Instead, the law and the 10 Commandments will make you happy. Never once does he recommend good therapy. Of course, why should he since therapy has always been anathema in the Church of God movement by claiming it is evil and only a Church of God minister is capable of true counseling?

Americans are depressed and suicidal. What’s the hope for happiness? 
On December 12, 2019, the FCC approved a proposal for a nationwide suicide prevention hotline in the USA using the number ‘988’). 
Suicide is that nation’s 10th leading cause of death. 
A Harris poll reveals 72% of Americans experience loneliness. 
Michael Synder claims Americans are lonely, miserable, and depressed. He claims that this is a legacy of a society that has rejected family, faith, and patriotism, but instead embraces an immoral anti-God agenda. 
Was immorality and societal decline prophesied? 
Where can people find the truth? Is there any good news? 
What about the gospel of the kingdom of God? 
Do scriptures offer a way to prevent suicide? 
What are some scriptures that give hope about being happy? 
Can the Ten Commandments help? 
What is the meaning of human life? 
What about love? 
Will you be able to give love throughout eternity and lead a happy life now? 
Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more.
