Racial and other lies from anti-COG writers


The anti-COG website falsely calling itself the Painful Truth ran the following yesterday:

One of the PT editors recently made this statement to me: “Bob Thiel is guilty of a shocking display of dishonesty and sophistry.”

Bob’s message is the same as Herbie’s, in that you should be afraid, especially if you are not of the chosen race, the chosen people, or the chosen church. …

As we march forward into the future this following year, it remains to be seen whether Bob’s sick racialism will be capable of self-critique. https://hwarmstrong.com/blog/2017/12/31/bob-thiel-the-year-ahead/

Without going into all the lies at that website, let me state that I have not displayed dishonesty.

Furthermore, I absolutely have never said nor implied one should be afraid if they are “not of the chosen race” or anything like that.

As regular readers of this COGwriter Church of God News page are aware, ethnically, I am predominantly Gentile.

I teach, and this is public (e.g. Race and Grace; Do you view race as God does?) that salvation is open to all races.

Actually, what I teach about Anglo-Israelism (which is apparently the ‘racist’ connection that the Painful Truth is falsely trying to imply) is that the Anglo-Israelite peoples and those associated with them are going to experience the Great Tribulation first if they do not repent (see When Will the Great Tribulation Begin?).

How is that supposed to be racist for those not Anglo-Israel?

Obviously it is not, but the Painful Truth does not care about truth, but calls lies truth.

Additionally, let me state that the bulk of the people that are part of the Continuing Church of God are Gentile.

The sick racialism is the nonsense that anti-COG websites put out as well as those that claim the Church of God but are not really Christians.

Perhaps it should also be pointed out that we in the Continuing Church of God  spend a higher percentage of our funds to reach Gentiles as well as to support poor ones than other groups we are aware of.

But those who hate what we stand for do not care.

Jesus said:

10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 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 5:10-12)

12 Now brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. 13 And you will be hated by all men for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end shall be saved…” (Mark 13:12-13).

3 And these things they will do to you because they have not known the Father nor Me. 4 But these things I have told you, that when the time comes, you may remember that I told you of them. And these things I did not say to you at the beginning, because I was with you (John 16:3-4).

Notice also the following prophecy:

1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! (2 Timothy 3:1-5)

We are in the last days. Slanderers, traitors, and blasphemers are all liars.

The Bible condemns lying; here is one such condemnation:

8 But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. (Revelation 21:8)

Jesus told some of the rulers (Pharisees, John 8:13) and others of His day:

44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. 45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. 46 Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me? 47 He who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God. (John 8:44-47)

Jesus condemned lying, as well as not believing someone who is telling the truth.

The Painful Truth site is falsely convicting me of sin that I am not guilty of. They will not accept the truth, but instead spew out lies.

Do not believe them or others who put forth hate and falsehoods.
