This is a bit of an unusual posting, but then the circumstances surrounding it are a bit unusual.
Back in October, a suspended (and I suspect a soon-to-be Ex) member wrote up the following Paper and mailed it out to select people:
In the same way that Simon Magus started a church in his day and called it “God’s Church”, so has someone today, in the spirit of Simon Magus, started the Laodecian church and called it the PCG.
This backsliding daughter compasses a man (Jeremiah 31:22). That man is Mr. Flurry. The PCG and Flurry started well, but the PCG is backsliding now, compassing Mr. Flurry rather than what is in the Bible, and what Mr. Armstrong taught.
Let no man deceive you by any means (2 Thessalonians 2:3). And how are people easily deceived? By casually accepting everything the ministers say without testing the ministry (as we are told to do in Malachi’s Message), by not having a Berean attitude (Acts 17:11) to test whether those things are so, by not proving all things (I Thes. 5:21).
Let no man take your crown (Revelation 3:11). As we have been taught before, this says “let”. It isn’t taken without your letting it happen—by not proving, by not testing, by unquestioningly accepting.
It seems to be having an effect! In a convoluted manner, AD’s network of insiders has gained information that a Regional Director in the Eastern Hemisphere has read the short piece and is filled with doubt. It was unclear whether the Paper was the sole cause of the doubt, though that is doubtful–most likely it merely informed and enhanced an already existing “confusion” and feeling that “the PCG is going off track”.
Who is this Mystery RD? We’ve revealed one clue: Eastern Hemisphere. We shall reveal more clues in the coming weeks. Why these games? Because we suspect the powers that be in the PCG are reading our posts and we want to see if they figure out who it is before we reveal it…and what they may do about it!
So, where in the world IS
