They will do so out of so-called "love", obviously... :-)
I had a rather interesting word exchange with a person calling himself "hwa-admin" - behind that alias is Don Wheatley.
I had written an announcement on the Usenet group "alt.religion.w-w-church-god" with the following wording:
I have created a new blog about Armstrongism, with the following description:
"Armstrongism - The Ultimate Guide is your FREE resource that helps you keep track of the many offshoots of Armstrongism based upon the doctrines of Herbert W. Armstrong who died in 1986. Even a quarter of a century later his ideas are still widespread in the many splinter groups - and the cultic tendencies of Armstrongism so clear to see."
Check out the blog right here:
This caused him to write the following (20th June):
Didn't you fully support Mr. Armstrong just a few years ago?
How could you turn in the opposite direction in so short of time?
I pray that you will repent and hold fast to all Mr. Armstrong taught.
Time is getting short.
My heart is for you and I hope you will consider my words.
I answered the following:

We all become wiser once we let "prove all things" include proving all things, and not just reading the things that confirm what is already known...
> How could you turn in the opposite direction in so short of time?
Miracles happen - and the eyes of the blind can be opened.

No need to pray for that, for you will be praying in vain.
I am only all too glad to help others who exit the delusion, and announcing that on the Usenet was part of that mission.
Shalom to you all. :-)

The Strategy That Never Changes
You can be sure that is ONE thing that will NEVER change with Armstrongism followers: they will try to play a guilt trip on you, expecting you would somehow bow to their idol solely based upon having been in agreement in the past.
You need to study the life of Sir Winston Churchill, former Prime Minister of England. He was a brave man, and he stood by his decisions. He changed party when he was in disagreement with his fellows. You need to do exactly the same when you disagree with what goes on.
The plague of Armstrongism will continue if noone speaks out, so therefore it is IMPERATIVE that you take a stand to stop the abuse that continues in the name of God. How they even DARE to call themselves servants of His with attitudes such as theirs....
Have a nice weekend everyone. :-)
