Scroll of the Book of Proverbs
Should you ever deal with accusations and false statements?
The Book of Proverbs teaches:
4 Do not answer a fool according to his folly,
Lest you also be like him.
5 Answer a fool according to his folly,
Lest he be wise in his own eyes. (Proverbs 26:4-5)
There have long been false statements about me (Bob Thiel) on the internet.
Many come from people who completely fell away from the truth. Some, like fools, even claim that there is no God (Psalm 14:1).
Yet, there are others who claim to still be part of the Church of God.
On the internet, sometimes when lies are repeated often by various sources, many accept lies as facts.
While I cannot address all the lies and innuendoes on the internet about me, since someone who claims to be in the Church of God has once again posted false and misleading statements about me, that perhaps this would be a good time to answer lest those who believe such things feel that they are wise in their own eyes.
So, let’s look at some of his charges and one or two some others have made.
John Carmack claims to be COG member. He is upset at this time (he has made false accusations against me in the past as well), because I actually quoted and responded to a church he is affiliated with when it posted about four tests to be a true prophet (see COGWA: ‘Four tests to prove whether a prophet is true’).
Now, let’s begin with the following from John Carmack, in his post improperly titled “COGWriter Bob Thiel Fails “Four Tests” of Being a True Prophet,” that he mentions before addressing the ‘four tests’:
This means that the prophet might dream a dream to deliver a message to someone else. Ordinarily, this is a warning message.
It is also important to note that the dream isn’t about the prophet himself/herself. Dreams prove nothing without results.
Bob Thiel has yet to deliver a real message to anyone, except supposedly about himself.
Let’s address three points that John Carmack made above that are wrong.
First, if John Carmack would have paid more attention to the Bible, he would have realized that Joseph had dreams from God about himself (Genesis 37:5-10) and that he past on to others who criticized him for doing so (Genesis 37:10-11). Yet Joseph, and not the criticizers, was proven correct. Isaiah also had a vision/dream about his commission (Isaiah 6:1-8). So the idea that prophets cannot get messages about themselves to pass on is not true.
Second, in terms of results, one the of dreams I had clearly began to come to pass. I had a dream where Dr. R.C. Meredith, who at the time told me he considered me to be a personal friend, stopped talking with me–and this happened (details are in the article Dreams, the Bible, the Radio Church of God, and the Continuing Church of God). Furthermore, someone in New Zealand, that I did not know, also had a dream related to me, part of which came to pass within weeks of her having it (those details are also in the article Dreams, the Bible, the Radio Church of God, and the Continuing Church of God).
Third, I did deliver a message to LCG minister (and then Council of Elder’s member, etc.) Davy Crockett in August 2008 that one of the top leaders in that church was about to be struck with something if his word was not kept (see also How To Determine If Someone is a True Prophet of God). Several weeks later, Dr. Meredith was struck with his first significant ministroke. I also attempted to convey a message to Dr. Meredith on December 19, 2011 that it seemed God was telling me that his wife was about to be struck with something serious. A few weeks later (per Dr. Meredith’s letter dated 1/12/12), Dr. Meredith reported that his wife (who was much younger than he) was stricken with stage four cancer (she later died on November 29, 2013).
For these predictions, and others, I believe I was led by God’s Spirit to make them (cf. Romans 8:14; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
Let’s look at more of the innuendoes and false accusations that John Carmack posted:
Here are the “Four Tests” COGWA wrote about with my rebuttal to COGWriter Bob Thiel’s self-aggrandizing article:
1. Does the conduct of the prophet reflect godly character?
Absolutely not! COGWriter Bob Thiel’s arrogance in rebelling against his former organization (after praising them so long in public, BTW) is reminiscent of Satan’s rebellion against God.
There was no ‘rebellion’ on my part. I asked the leadership of LCG to keep its word on many promises, and when it became clear that they would not do that, there was no alternative for me to do anything but leave LCG. I repeatedly tried to work with LCG, but as its leadership reneged on agreements and promises, it became clear to me that I had to distance myself, and I did prior to leaving–while still hoping that they would have the integrity to do what they promised and not teach errors that they knew their literature contained. But LCG did not have the integrity to lead the end time work (cf. Jeremiah 48:10) and since “the word of the Lord is right, And all His work is done in truth” (Psalms 33:4), I truly had to depart from LCG.
What I did was reminiscent of what the late Herbert W. Armstrong did when he left CG7 (see The Bible, Peter, Paul, John, Polycarp, Herbert W. Armstrong, Roderick C. Meredith, and Bob Thiel on Church Government ) and not at all like what happened with Satan and his rebellion.
John Carmack should not make railing accusations (cf. 2 Peter 2:10-11, KJV).
In this post, I have provided facts, scriptures, and links to back up my responses. John Carmack and others should realize that the Bible teaches:
16 The sluggard is wiser in his own conceit than seven men that can render a reason. (Proverbs 26:16, KJV)
I have provided many facts and reasons to back up my writings. John Carmack and others should ask themselves if they can accept reason or if they prefer dismissive conceit.
Here is another item from John Carmack’s post:
2. Do the predictions of the prophet come true?
What predictions? All Thiel does is rehash a mix of biblical prophecies intermingled with pagan prophecies to create an abomination of predictions.
Well, in addition to the two previously mentioned, there were over 30 in my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect which were at least partially confirmed by world events by December 22, 2012. For details, check out the article End of Mayan Calendar 2012–Might 2012 Mean Something?
Consider also that 0n June 14, 2010, when I posted something related to Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg (see Guttenberg Hints of Resigning) who was then the Defense Minister for Germany:
If he does resign, this would not be a surprise. For various reasons, he may be out of the limelight for a while, if he does, in fact, become the final King of the North.
And of course, while the Baron did not resign in 2010, he did end up resigning in 2011 for other reasons. My writing was not based on pagan prophesies but what the Bible predicted in Daniel 11:21. Here are three translations of that:
21 And there shall stand up in his place one despised, and the kingly honour shall not be given him: and he shall come privately, and shall obtain the kingdom by fraud. (Daniel 11:21, Douay-Rheims)
21 “‘His place will be taken by a reject, a man spurned and passed over for advancement. He’ll surprise everyone, seemingly coming out of nowhere, and will seize the kingdom. (Daniel 11:21 from THE MESSAGE: The Bible in Contemporary Language © 2002 by Eugene H. Peterson. All rights reserved.)
21 And in his place shall stand up a contemptible person, to whom they had not given the honor of the kingdom: but he shall come in time of security, and shall obtain the kingdom by flatteries. (Daniel 11:21, ASV)
Daniel 11:21 clearly teaches that someone who experiences some public humiliation will rise up. That was why I was bold enough to say that if Baron Guttenberg could be the one to fulfill this meant he would have more problems–and he did!
The fact that he indicated he might resign in 2010 was another factor that got me to consider that he might be the final King of the North. As far as being out of the limelight, on December 23, 2012, Der Speigel ran an article pointing out the fact that he was staying away from publicity, etc. (see Karl-Theodor Guttenberg working in secret?), hence providing further confirmation to my speculation.
Also, in June 2010, in my article Might German Baron Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg become the King of the North?, I posted the following:
As far as being exiled goes, the Baron is not always popular, and he may become unpopular for a time.
My statement was based on Daniel 11:21. And not only did the plagiarism charge reduce his popularity, shortly thereafter he did go into a self-imposed exile. Even the German press has referred to his later move to the USA as “Exil” (TV-Kolumne: „Maybrit Illner“: Das Guttenberg-Rätsel – weiter lesen auf FOCUS Online: http://www.focus.de/kultur/kino_tv/focus-fernsehclub/tv-kolumne-maybrit-illner-das-guttenberg-raetsel_aid_687881.html). “Exil” is “Exile” in English.
On August 6, 2010, at my Los Angeles Church History and End Time Prophecy Examiner column, I posted (Karl Guttenberg most popular German politician. Might he rise further?):
Even if he temporarily loses popularity again, ultimately he may rise much further.
And the plagiarism scandal has, temporarily in a sense in my view, caused him to lose popularity–consistent with Daniel 11:21-24.
On October 21, 2010, at my Los Angeles Church History and End Time Prophecy Examiner column, I posted (Guttenbergs rising: Might Europe turn to Karl Guttenberg?):
Despite the Guttenbergs rising popularity, Karl Guttenberg is virtually unknown to those I have spoken to about him in Southern California (the American media tends to spend less time on foreign affairs than they do to American celebrities).
On February 25, 2011, I posted (Guttenberg Down, But Not Out):
And it is possible that he could end up out of the limelight, or even out of a political office, for a while.
This was based on Daniel 11:21-24. Now although Angela Merkel had wanted him to remain as Defense Minister at that time, he resigned from political office shortly after (March 1, 2011, see Guttenberg Resigns!) a few days after I posted that he might.
Mr. zu Guttenberg may reemerge in politics in the future (and this bears watching)…
Perhaps I should add that my prediction related to what the Pope did related to Syria a couple of years ago (see Francis prays and fasts to ‘Mary’) came to pass (Middle East Peace?), even though it looked to many that the Pope had succeeded (some source last month indicated that what Pope Francis did worked, but it did not bring peace–it helped unleash the Islamic State).
There are many other items as well, but these few examples should suffice.
As far as ‘pagan’ prophecies go, the old Radio Church of God taught about them (e.g. Christ or Antichrist?) as I do (see, e.g. Do Certain Catholic Prophecies About Antichrist Warn Against Jesus?). It may also be of interest to note that the Apostle Paul referred to pagan prophetic and other sources sometimes (Acts 17:22-30) in an effort to better reach people of various backgrounds (1 Corinthians 9:19-22; Acts 17:18-30). Furthermore, various prophets, such as Micaiah (1 Kings 22:10-28) and Jeremiah (Jeremiah 28:1-17) explained how pagan prophecies impacted God’s prophecies.
Notice one example:
19 Then Micaiah said, “Therefore hear the word of the Lord: I saw the Lord sitting on His throne, and all the host of heaven standing by, on His right hand and on His left. 20 And the Lord said, ‘Who will persuade Ahab to go up, that he may fall at Ramoth Gilead?’ So one spoke in this manner, and another spoke in that manner. 21 Then a spirit came forward and stood before the Lord, and said, ‘I will persuade him.’ 22 The Lord said to him, ‘In what way?’ So he said, ‘I will go out and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’ And the Lord said, ‘You shall persuade him, and also prevail. Go out and do so.’ 23 Therefore look! The Lord has put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these prophets of yours, and the Lord has declared disaster against you.” (1 Kings 22:19-23)
Notice that God’s prophet specifically explained how a lying prophecy was going to be successful. When it comes to Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Hindu, and Chinese prophecies, I have done the same thing. I have also striven to follow the Apostle Paul who claimed that he tried different cultural approaches (including referring to improper religious beliefs, Acts 19:22-31) to try to reach who he could (cf.1 Corinthians 9:19-22), and that he did that “for the gospel’s sake” (1 Corinthians 9:23).
What I have tried to do is follow Paul, Micaiah, Jeremiah, and others who have done this, though some have condemned me for this and use this as an improper reason not to believe what I say or write (a YouTube video of related interest may be Do Prophets Cite False Prophecies?).
Faithful Christians are not to be ignorant of Satan’s devices (2 Corinthians 2:11). We in the Continuing Church of God understand how demonic prophecies tie in with Satan’s plan are are not afraid to point this out (see also Satan’s Plan).
Getting back to John Carmack’s list, his next item was:
3. Are the words of the prophet consistent with Scripture?
No. His organization, as well as his parent group LCG, add all sorts of traditions of men to their beliefs, including but not exhaustively forms of government (idolatry of men), criticisms of observing the anniversary of one’s birth, laxity on the sanctity of marriage, church eras, and more.
So, because John Carmack does NOT hold to what the old WCG taught about church governance (see The Bible, Peter, Paul, John, Polycarp, Herbert W. Armstrong, Roderick C. Meredith, and Bob Thiel on Church Government), birthdays (see Did Early Christians Celebrate Birthdays?), church eras (see The Churches of Revelation 2 & 3), etc. he claims my words are not consistent with scripture. Yet, I have scripture-based articles on those subjects and more.
As far as laxity on the sanctity of marriage, this is another clearly false accusation on his part–I did object to what I was aware of on this while part of LCG and it has long been in my list of doctrinal differences with LCG (see Why Bob Thiel Left the Living Church of God and What About the Living Church of God? Are there Doctrinal Differences with the Continuing Church of God?).
John Carmack has never contacted me about any supposed laxity in marriage in the Continuing Church of God nor provided any specific proof or example. He seemingly got this from his own imagination. Nehemiah had a similar problem when he was falsely accused (Nehemiah 6:8).
The fact that John Carmack seemingly rejects aspects of biblical governance and does not condemn the celebration of birthdays, does not make my scriptural and historical references wrong.
Here is another point John Carmack brought up:
4. Do the people benefit spiritually from the prophet’s ministry?
No. The only benefit is Bob Thiel’s enrichment and supposed elevation of status.
The innuendo from him is that I do this for money–which he calls enrichment. That is completely and utterly false. I do not take a salary from the Continuing Church of God, nor did I take one from the old Global or Living Church of God despite the over a decade of volunteer work I did.
Like the Apostle Paul:
33 I have coveted no one’s silver or gold or apparel. 34 Yes, you yourselves know that these hands have provided for my necessities, and for those who were with me. 35 I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'” (Acts 20:33-35)
My other work (I own a private company) supports my personal finances.
The money the Continuing Church of God receives goes to support the proclaiming of Jesus’ Gospel of the Kingdom of God (Matthew 24:14), teaching what Jesus taught around the world (Matthew 28:19-20) and to support the poor (Galatians 2:10). Much of the funds go to support very poor people in Africa and some parts of Asia. Claiming that this is for my personal ‘enrichment’ is false.
As far as spiritual benefits go, around 2000 people say they are part of Continuing Church of God. I have personally baptized people from all the inhabited continents on the earth, except South America (and even there, I preached in Brazil). We may also have more materials in more languages than any other COG whose leaders were once part of the old WCG. Our magazine has been produced in 12 languages, in addition to English, to cite one example. And we are engaged in a project to get our booklets in several times that many languages.
We in the Continuing Church of God are leading what I have termed ‘the final phase of the work’ (details are in the article The Final Phase of the Work). Also as far as spiritual benefits, in addition to our ministers, hosts, printed materials, and internet articles to support our members, we also produce sermons (ContinuingCOG channel) and sermonette (Bible News Prophecy channel) in English and African (CCOGAfrica channel) languages online.
Also, I have done about 63 radio interviews since the formation of the Continuing Church of God in order to reach the world (Matthew 24:14; 28:19-20). And this does NOT include our Bible News Prophecy online radio, which features both myself and John Hickey. Perhaps I should mention that I scheduled to do a two-hour radio interview today from a secular internet radio channel. We are doing the ‘Philadelphia‘ work (Revelation 3:7-13).
The Continuing Church of God has been the fastest growing COG since its formation in late 2012. It has exceeded the 30% growth in both membership and income in each of the years since it formed that the late Herbert W. Armstrong often pointed to as a proof of a blessing from God. While our growth rate will fluctuate, the Continuing Church of God is the only one of the ten largest COGs whose leaders had origins in the old Worldwide Church of God to do so. And we are on track for this growth in 2016 as well.
The fact that people like John Carmack do not want to get spiritual benefits from this work is sad. Especially, because we can demonstrate how the Sardisian and Laodicean churches have serious errors in their respective prophetic understandings (for details see The Sardis Church Era and The Laodicean Church Era).
As far as “elevation of status” goes, it was LCG’s Dr. Meredith who telephoned me and told me that God may consider me to be a prophet on October 3, 2008 and he told me in January 2009 if he was ever to appoint himself an apostle that he may ordain me a prophet, shows the view he himself once had. The fact that an LCG minister was later inspired to pray that God would grant me a ‘double-portion’ of His Spirit on December 15, 2011, and told me that this was reminiscent of the passing of the mantle from the prophet Elijah to Elisha (2 Kings 2) then as well on on March 23, 2012, shows that this was not simply me taking a title, but accepting what happened (for more details see also How To Determine If Someone is a True Prophet of God).
John Carmack also posted the following (and also some names about the Continuing Church of God that I will not bother to address):
Simply put, too many church organizations take on titles of prophet, apostle and even sillier terms jerked out of context from the Bible in order to entice you and I and anyone else who will listen to follow them rather than God.
Two issues with that. The first is that the titles come from the Bible:
27 Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually. 28 And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues. (1 Corinthians 12:27-28)
The Apostle Paul called himself an apostle and prophet, yet he was not one of the original apostles. And no, I have never claimed the title of ‘apostle,’ nor “jerked” titles out of context).
“Don’t simply believe me – Believe what the Bible really Teaches – Believe the Truth – Prove all things – Believe God!”
John Carmack’s innuendo that I expect people to do otherwise is false.
Probably the most common innuendo to deal with is the following (from many sources) which did not come from John Carmack’s recent posting:
If Bob Thiel was God’s prophet, he would not ever try to defend it. God’s prophets do not do that.
The problem with that belief is that is not biblically accurate. Jeremiah, Amos, the Apostle Paul and even Moses felt that they had to defend their roles from God (for some references, see also How To Determine If Someone is a True Prophet of God).
Of course, Jesus taught the following:
22 Blessed are you when men hate you,
And when they exclude you,
And revile you, and cast out your name as evil,
For the Son of Man’s sake.
23 Rejoice in that day and leap for joy!
For indeed your reward is great in heaven,
For in like manner their fathers did to the prophets. (Luke 6:22-23)
Notice that Jesus warned that His people and His prophets are spoken against. This is happening today.
The Bible teaches that Satan, “the accuser of our brethren” (Revelation 12:10), will be cast down. Yet, sadly, some seemingly wish to imitate him.
John Carmack is in my prayers (cf. Matthew 5:44).
John Carmack and others seem to have little problem publicly bearing false witness. But we who will stand for the truth realize that many made false accusations against Jesus, Paul, Moses, Jeremiah, etc.
There are some other false accusations about me that are addressed in the article Who is COGwriter?
11 “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. (Matthew 5:11-12)
And that certainly has happened. Many cannot accept the idea that God could have at least one prophet today, despite the prophecies that there would be in the end times (Acts 2, etc.).
The work we are doing in the Continuing Church of God seems to offend various ones, who should at least not bear false witness (Exodus 20:16; Mark 10:19, etc.) or otherwise try to stop it (cf. Luke 9:49-50). But, no matter what they do, they cannot overthrow it (cf. Acts 5:39).
The Apostle John wrote:
11 Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. (3 John 11)
Hopefully, those of you who read the posts on this page have an attitude more like the Bereans of old. Although they were not certain about the Apostle Paul, notice what they did:
10 Then the brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea. When they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews. 11 These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so. 12 Therefore many of them believed, and also not a few of the Greeks, prominent women as well as men. 13 But when the Jews from Thessalonica learned that the word of God was preached by Paul at Berea, they came there also and stirred up the crowds. (Acts 17:10-13)
After they checked what Paul taught with the scriptures, they believed and followed. Sadly, many in Thessalonica did not do so. Do not imitate those of Thessalonica, but instead the faithful of Berea.
I have been a baptized member of the Church of God for over 39 years. And despite my own flaws, I strive to live according to the truths in the Bible, and strive to teach them. Hopefully, people will believe facts and the Bible over accusers of the brethren who attempt to spread falsehoods.

The Laodicean Church Era has been predominant circa 1986 A.D. to present. The Laodiceans are non-Philadelphians who mainly descended from the old WCG or its offshoots. They do not properly understand the work or biblical prophecies and will face the Great Tribulation if they do not repent. One video of related interest is 17 Laodicean Errors in Prophecy.
