Dave Pack has been doing exactly the same thing as may be seen in his article, RCG Fruits—Phenomenal Growth Continues!
Imitating HWA's twisting the Scriptures that "Fruits" means "Membership/Material growth" of the organization Pack asserts that his sect has grown more then any other COG. Like HWA before him and Stephen Flurry as seen earlier "Apostle" Pack assures us that this growth is a sign of divine favor.
None of that changes the fact that HWA was a false prophet who spread countless fear inducing prophecies which simply did not happen.
Let the reader remember these words of Scripture.
When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath NOT SPOKEN, but the prophet hath spoken it PRESUMPTUOUSLY: thou shalt not be afraid of him.' (Deuteronomy 18:22, emphasis mine).What is HWA's track record?
- He predicted Christ to return in 1936 (p. 3).
- He predicted that Mussolini then Hitler was the Beast.
- He preached for years, from 1953 onwards, that Jesus Christ would return in 1975. Nothing happened.
- In Mystery of the Ages he claimed Christ would return by 2005. (PCG altered that book after the court case so if you look up their version you won't see that prediction.)
Claims of growth are meaningless.
