Intelligent quote of the day

pixelscaredArmstrongism is a fear based cult, it has always been that. There was fear of church leaders, fear of being disloyal, fear of not making into the kingdom, fear of being disfellowshipped, etc. Armstrongism at it’s core is not a joy based faith. If it was, then there is no need to be constantly worrying about when the end is coming, who the beast is, etc. They have no relationship with the creature they claim as ‘jesus’. ‘It’ doesn’t exist! They wonder why the ‘church’ isn’t growing, why there are so many splinter sects of momma church, why so many different men claiming to be God’s only true minister, and on and on and on.

When you see the absolute hatred dripping from some of these people there is no way in h-e-ll that God would have a chance in working with them. The have such vile hatred for Tkach Sr that it is appalling. Yet, they quickly forget that Herb placed TK in that position over many other ministers (particularly LaRavia and Meredith). Now if Herb can make no mistakes and is constantly led by God then God must have deliberately made a mistake. That is what these loonies think.

Very blunt but very true assesment of the splinters of Armstrongism by WCG Alumni poster PasedenaGuy10 on UCG elder Aaron Dean’s belief that “we have only 4-5 years left!”

One thought on “Intelligent quote of the day

  1. I’ve reached the conclusion over the last several years that UCG is more fear-full than faith-full.

    Latest example of this: A sermonette I heard last weekend went through some “difficult scriptures” on the healing miracles of Jesus. The Local Elder who gave it reached the conclusion that if UCG ministers had healing powers today, the membership would face persecution from sick people. We’d be attacked, because they’d be demanding immediate healing.

    After thinking this over, I was led to different conclusions:

    1. Is it more important that sick people are healed — or that UCG members are comfortable?

    2. Aren’t UCG members (and for that matter ALL “true believers”) supposed to face persecution? Isn’t that a sign that you’re a “true Christian”? Aren’t you supposed to “count it all joy” when such persecution comes, based on the book of Acts?

    3. Do these “attacks by sick people” happen today? Are people in wheelchairs waiting outside the offices of Benny Hinn or Leroy Jenkins on a daily basis? Are aides being assailed, by phone or otherwise? (If not, why not? If so, why don’t you hear more about it?)
