Tomorrow's World Only Source of Understanding?

The following is from Roderick C. Meredith's semi-annual letter of May 26, 2003, p. 1. The semi-annual letter is given to Tomorrow's World magazine subscribers who had not yet paid them. (Bolding is mine. Italics is in original.)

The entire panorama of prophetic events that I have preached and written about for the last fifty years is now coming to its climax! Only in Tomorrow's World magazine will you be given the full understanding of what is happening on the world scene and what you should do about it.

This is not true. There are many other Armstrongite groups out there that share the same understanding of Armstrongite prophecy as Meredith's Living Church of God. Small details do occasionally differ among the groups. (Will the King of the South be a unified Arab combine or Iran? Or Ethiopia?) But they are generally just small details.

This statement is designed to make unsuspecting readers think that the sort of information they are getting from LCG is unique. Yet many other groups share the same understanding of prophecy, largely inherited from the false prophet Herbert W. Armstrong.

This statement is untrue and dreadfully misleading.
