COGwriter: Top Ten In January 2008

The Above Map Show the Number of Internet Users Around the World By Country 


January 2008 was a very good month overall for the website.  Compared to January 2007, the number of unique visitors and page views more than doubled.

However, there still seems to be problems with our server and the site was down 2-3 times during the month.  My son and I are looking into this and hope to resolve this.  But let me simply state that if the site is ever down, it is because of some type of technical problem as I have no intention to shut the site down in 2008.

Anyway, here are the top ten viewed articles (ignores news items, quizzes, etc.) for January 2008:

  1. Concerns About Ronald Weinland’s Church of God-Preparing for the Kingdom of God Ronald Weinland falsely claims to be one of the two witnesses God is raising up and that the end will come in 2008. Is he a false prophet? He has at least one other view that suggests that he is not part of the COG.
  2. Who Are The Two Witnesses? What is their job? What does the Bible reveal? What has the Church of God taught on this subject? Might even Roman Catholic prophecies give some clues here?
  3. Did Early Christians Celebrate Birthdays? Did biblical era Jews celebrate birthdays? Who originally celebrated birthdays? When did many that profess Christ begin birthday celebrations?
  4. The History of Early Christianity Are you aware that what most people believe is not what truly happened to the true Christian church? Do you know where the early church was based? Do you know what were the doctrines of the early church? Is your faith really based upon the truth or compromise?
  5. Why Not the Restored Church of God? This group, led by David Pack, claims to be the most faithful. The information in this article suggests otherwise.
  6. There are Many COGs: Why Support the Living Church of God?This is an article for those who wish to easily sort out the different COGs. It really should be a MUST READ for current and former WCG members or any interested in supporting the faithful church. It also explains a lot of what the COGs are all about.
  7. Church of God, Seventh Day: History and Teachings Nearly all COG’s I am aware of trace their history through this group. Whaid Rose is the president of the largest CG7 group (Denver). Do you know much about them?
  8. Teachings Unique to the Philadelphia Church of God Simply calling oneself ‘Philadelphia’ does not make one so (see Revelation 3:7-9), nor does Gerald Flurry calling himself “that prophet” make it so. This article provides many quotes from this group which claims to be faithful.
  9. 8. Europa, the Beast, and the Book of Revelation discusses the largest church since the second/third century, which in a real sense is the eighth church mentioned in the Book of Revelation (it also endorses “eighth day” worship).
  10. Which Is Faithful: The Roman Catholic Church or the Living Church of God? Do you know that both groups shared a lot of the earliest teachings? Do you know which church changed? Do you know which group is most faithful to the teachings of the apostolic church? Which group best represents true Christianity? This documented article answers those questions.

The article on Ronald Weinland’s group was viewed nearly 5,000 times–he must be getting a lot of people’s attention for that many to come and read my article about his group.  Of course, unless there is a major terrorist attack or other significant disasters, interest in him is expected to diminish by June 2008 according to his own teachings.

FWIW, most of the articles in the top ten were updated recently and if you have previously read them, you may wish to look them over again for the additional information they now include.
