Laodicea has many ineffective structures
In an email it sent out today, ICG’s Mark Armstrong wrote the following:
As mentioned in the monthly letter, we’ve had no choice but to curtail some of our television outlets temporarily. We’d hoped it wouldn’t be necessary, but the realities of the national economic situation have taken a toll across the board.
For a group that does not believe and teach “church eras”, ICG has historically tended to reach more on television than most of the other non-Philadelphian COGs. But apparently it is having enough economic problems that this is being affected.
Basically, ICG tries to combine current news items with video clips of the late Garner Ted Armstrong for its telecast. And while I have tended to find that a bit creepy, it has seemed to work somewhat for ICG.
Some articles of possibly related interest may include:
Intercontinental Church of God ICG was Garner Ted Armstrong’s last group; it is now led by Mark Armstrong.
Unity: Which COG for You? Why so many groups? Why is there lack of unity in the Churches of God? Has it always been this way? What can/should be done about it?
There are Many COGs: Why Support the Living Church of God? This is an article for those who wish to more easily sort out the different COGs. It really should be a MUST READ for current and former WCG/GCI members or any interested in supporting the faithful church. It also explains a lot of what the COGs are all about.
Should the Church Still Try to Place its Top Priority on Proclaiming the Gospel or Did Herbert W. Armstrong Change that Priority for the Work? Some say the Church should mainly feed the flock now as that is what Herbert W. Armstrong reportedly said. Is that what he said? Is that what the Bible says? What did Paul and Herbert W. Armstrong expect from evangelists?
The Laodicean Church Era has been predominant circa 1986 A.D. to present. These are non-Philadelphians who mainly descended from the old WCG.
