If people in this world would only look closely at God’s Feast of Tabernacles, they would see their fabulous future. But most people cannot see history as being truly important when it is comprised of only 6,000 people! Still, this Work is THEIR ONLY HOPE. (Gerald Flurry, History of God's Feast of Tabernacles, October 2008.)It is worth bearing in mind that, as noted in a previous post, back in August 1997 his son, the heir apparent, Stephen Flurry, admitted that PCG had less than 7,000 members.
Just look at what the right priorities have done for the Philadelphia Church of God. Each month, you can receive the Trumpet magazine at no cost to you. Furthermore, our television program, The Key of David, seen around the world, never solicits contributions. And television and publishing are only two departments of this worldwide work. Yet the Philadelphia Church of God has less than 7,000 members! Many people are astonished at that figure. (Stephen Flurry, Don't Waste Your Time, August 1997, p. 2.)In 1997 Stephen Flurry said PCG had "less than 7,000 members" and eleven years later Gerald Flurry stated that PCG was "comprised of only 6,000 people". If anything it sounds as though PCG's number of members had declined between 1997 and 2008. One can only wonder what has happened to PCG's membership numbers since 2008.
PCG's leaders are notoriously secretive about their organization which necessitates reading between the lines.
