Overview of the January 2019 Issue of PCG's Philadelphia Trumpet

PCG has now released the latest issue of their recruitment magazine (January 2019).

Let's see what they have to say this time.

The editors of this issue are Gerald Flurry, Stephen Flurry, Joel Hilliker, Brad Macdonald, Richard Palmer, Jeremiah Jacques, Dennis Leap and Phillip Nice.

This issue have a circulation of 264,989 issues.

Gerald Flurry has a personal article scare mongering that "a new king" will soon take over Germany after Chancellor Merkel leaves power. Since 2009 PCG's leadership have constantly scare mongered that Baron Karl Theodor zu Guttenburg may soon become the man destined to conquer the United States just before Christ's return.

David Vejil has an accompanying article insisting that Germans are descendents of the ancient Assyrians. That is incorrect. It is an idea inherited from British Israelism.

Gerald Flurry also has an article denouncing French President Macron for calling for the creation of a European military force to protect the European Union from the United States and for criticizing the nationalism in the prescence of PCG's preferred president, Donald Trump.

Joel Hilliker has an article insisting that there are four signs occurring that prove that Christ will soon return. Armstrongites have constantly insisted on promoting such scare mongering since the 1930s and still their predictions always fail to occur.

Ryan Malone has an article encouraging parents to develop the talents of their children.

Jeremiah Jacques has an article scare mongering that the United States will somehow be crippled by some sort of cyber attack from China.

The Infographic condemns using smartphones too much.

Gerald Flurry also has an article discussing the composition of the US Supreme Court. He is still smarting from just how close President Trump's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh was from failing to pass the Senate.

Andrew Müller has an article insisting that the left are to blame for the increase in politically motivated violence in the United States. Any research made outside of the PCG information bubble will reveal that most politically motivated violence in the United States is committed by individuals aligned with the far right. 

Joel Hilliker also has a little article encouraging older people to teach those who are younger.

PCG's 1% have also included an article by HWA insisting that if one just listen to him and his organization such a person would escape and avoid the Great Tribulation. With such words life outside the organization is rendered as worthless compared to life within the organization by making the reader afraid that the organization's prophesied cataclysm will soon occur. So they do not worry about problems within the organization. Fear keeps them in.

And so PCG's 1% have once made another issue of their recruitment magazine seeking to lure in new members and keep members in awe of the supposedly divinely backed leaders of Gerald Flurry's organization.

HWA and his imitators have constantly used fear to keep their tithes paying followers in line. One fear they teach is to say that Christmas and birthdays are forbidden. They fear to lose God's favor if they celebrate Christmas or birthdays. There is no need to live in fear. There is nothing wrong for a Christian to celebrate Christmas and birthdays. We do not need Arstrongite preachers. They are the ones who need followers to pay tithes to them.


  1. "Any research made outside of the PCG information bubble will reveal that most politically motivated violence in the United States is committed by individuals aligned with the far right. "

    And your proof of this is offered where?

    1. Fair question. Here is one quote I partly relied on to reach this conclusion.

      "White supremacists are much more likely to commit violent crimes than other sub-groups or classifications of domestic extremism. According to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), in 2015, white supremacists accounted for 38 percent of all extremist killings, followed closely by Islamist, anti-government, and anti-abortion extremists. Left-wing extremism accounted for around 1 percent of all killings; so-called “black extremism” did not register." (Melanie Schmitz, Think Progress, August 17, 2017.)

      In general PCG's 1% happen to quite partisan for the right and will tend to ignore events and viewpoints that contradict their political stances.

  2. Don't know about you but I am a bit suspect about any stat that puts 1% for one group. Political postering.
