PCG's heir apparent, Stephen Flurry, implies that the real cause of these problem is that Satan the Devil is attacking his preferred president. He also implies that this alleged attack by Satan against President Trump is quite similar to the Tkach changes in WCG after HWA's death.
In [a certain PCG booklet], my father boldly states that the power behind this assault comes from Satan the devil!
Satan is very real, and he is the source of the spirit, the ideology and the hate that somehow unites Communists, statists, anarchists, extremists, sexual deviants and other elements of the radical left. He is the one uniting them against a common enemy: the last remaining Bible-based principles of the past. He is also the source of the weakness, the blindness and the apathy of those who aren’t as radical. And he is the source of a movement within the government itself to destroy the government.
My father brings out that we at the Trumpet have seen this before. The United States is part of the physical descendants of Israel. [That idea is known as British Israelism which happens to be completely wrong.] God’s Church is spiritual Israel. After the human leader of God’s Church (Herbert W. Armstrong) died in 1986, Satan attacked the Church. How did he do it? With a new ideology, with hatred for the past, with powerful leaders at the top, with apathy and confusion among the people. He did it slowly and subtly. He did it by leaders boldly proclaiming that they were loyal to the principles of the past while they knowingly destroyed those principles. He did it by portraying as backward, oppressive and, yes, racist, those who continued to believe and live the way they had always believed and lived. He did it by people ignoring, belittling and forcing out those who didn’t adopt their liberal ideology.
Does this sound familiar? You will be shocked to see how closely the ongoing attack on the United States government matches the attack on God’s Church. (Stephen Flurry, The U.S. Government Is at War With Itself, The Philadelphia Trumpet, July 2018, p. 14.)Firing FBI Director Comey while there was this suspicion that it was to stop the investigation into alleged links between the Trump campaign and Russian individuals is not the problem according to this idea promoted by Stephen Flurry. It is Satan's fault that his preferred president faces an investigation by a special counsel.
Allegedly sending out a press release about Donald Trump, Jr.'s meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya which was soon discredited was not the problem according to this idea promoted by Stephen Flurry. It is Satan's fault that his preferred president faces an investigation by a special counsel and that it the possibility of removal from office before his term expires seems so likely to so many.
Somehow the fact that Vice President Pence would have to succeed Trump if he was removed from office is left unstated. If PCG's 1% are so worried that the removal of their preferred president under the process of impeachment will somehow cause the United States to become more left wing but if Vice President Pence were to be made president he would surely work against that outcome. Why is it that PCG's 1% seem so set on ignoring that fact?
