PCG Disagreeing with Radio COG's Herman Hoeh

Brent Nagtegaal made a broadcast of his radio show, Watch Jerusalem (December 25, 2016), denouncing the recent United Nations Security Council resolution condemning the Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, land acquired after the Six Day War of 1967 and discussing Gezer.

The United States' decision to abstain concerning a resolution condemning Israeli settlements on land acquired after the Six Day War of 1967 is denounced. That it should take place just before Hanukkah is mentioned. PCG does not celebrate Hanukkah.

He also alludes to Gerald Flurry's ridiculous and hysterical denunciation of President Obama as being "another Antiochus," essentially an Antichrist like figure devised by Flurry.

Obama will soon be replaced by Trump but Nagtegaal insists on making his listeners be fearful and afraid about this matter. But PCG are but false prophets whose words will never come to pass.

It is not explained that the 161 nation states that recognize the State of Israel only recognize its right to rule over its 1949-67 borders. This is why many nations have their embassies located in Tel Aviv instead of Jerusalem. Consequently the land acquired as a result of the 1967 Six Day War is viewed by these 161 nation states as occupied territory and consequently various international laws concerning occupied land are viewed by these nation states as applicable to the land acquired as a result of the 1967 Six Day War. And one law is that it is forbidden for a nation state to transfer its population onto occupied land. The Israeli government would disagree that such laws apply to the Israeli settlements but other nation states view view things differently as was seen with the recent vote.

And after that Nagtegaal talks with PCG's Christopher Eames about the city of Gezer.

They talk about the El Amarna letters which are cited as corroborating the events of the Book of Joshua. The letters talk of the "Habiru" who are identified by Nagtegaal and Eames to be Hebrew. This contradicts Herman Hoeh's Compendium of World History which insisted that the El Amarna letters date to the early ninth century BC and insisted that the Habiru were not Hebrews.
The El-Amarna letters were written mainly in the days of Athaliah and Joash of Judah, and of Jehu and Jehoahaz of Israel. A few are from the earlier period of the Jehorams or before. .... The "khabiru" or "habiru" were the Aramean, Philistine, Moabite, Arabian bands of plunderers who were overrunning Phoenicia, Syria and Palestine in the days of Jehoram and Jehoahaz. (Herman Hoeh, Compendium of World History, Volume I, Chapter 7.)
PCG insists that the Radio Church of God of this time was God's "one true church." They promote HWA's anti-medicine superstitions and HWA's ban on makeup partly because that was taught at some point by HWA's group. And despite stubbornly promoting such harsh and even dangerous ideas they disagree with that particular claim dating from the 1960s.

PCG changed their view of the El Amarna letters but insist on promoting such harsh and even dangerous ideas from HWA's organization.


  1. Seriously, the PCG needs to have its tax exempt status looked at.

  2. You know, if this sort of disagreement is going to continue in tiffs with various personalities in the Cult of Herbert Armstrong Mafia, I might just decide not to take any of them seriously.

  3. There are problems when COGs base their lineage on HWA and his minions, including the "world's greatest historian" and then disagree with something they wrote.
    I also understand the Compendia were continually being edited, revised and corrected following the first publication. And after HWA's demise, Dr Hoeh denounced his fabricated history as nonsense.
