Gerald Flurry Bossy Even in his Youth

Just saw this fascinating comment by Byker Bob at Banned by HWA.
I forget the name of the movie, but there was one a few years back in which the younger Christian men and women of the early Church era would visit St. John, the last surviving apostle, and ask him questions to which only he knew the answer, like what it was like to see Lazarus raised from the dead. They really displayed a lot of love and reverance for him because of his close relationship to Jesus.

Somehow, back in SEP, as I listened to my friend Don bitterly complaining about his brother Gerald lording it over him, It never occurred to me that his oppressor would one day be revered as a similar kind of Armstrongite apostle. I can't even fathom the mindset of these Flurryites.

One would have thought that this would have dried up back in 1975, but somehow it has reinvented itself into countless parallel planes of human existence.

A joke for the day: Why does God allow Armstrongism to exist? To keep bad ministers away from the Christian Churches.
So it would appear that Gerald Flurry had tendencies to lord it over others even when he was a young man.


  1. The funny thing about this is that Don was anti-authoritarian to the core! He wasn't afraid of any of the authority figures. He exemplified the personna of a James Dean type juvenile delinquent, yet the one person he feared to cross was his older brother. My reaction was, "you've got to be kidding!" I often wonder what became of Don. Hopefully he has had a good life.


  2. All I can say is that I have never heard of Don Flurry, so even if he is within PCG he certainly is nowhere in the inner circle of its leaders.

  3. The last time I heard any news of Don was in the late 1960s, when he apparently was living and working in the Las Vegas area. Maybe he or someone who knows him will see this, and be able to give us an update.
