Philadelphia Trumpet Does It Again

When you see the January 2012 issue of The Philadelphia Trumpet, the feature story is about Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple who died in October 2011. This man is applauded for his computer genius, focus on his vision - and rightly so.

What is less trustworthy is once again that the current events focus, very similar to The Plain Truth, is biased by the author. The few quotes are intended for people to relax and take in this material as though it was a journalist reporting about Steve Jobs.

Steve was FAR MORE COMPLEX than presented in this article, and you should read his biography rather than reading The Incredible Human Potential which the PCG now define as "our book" after they bought copyrights from WCG.

One of the points that caused Apple to have great success was, in part, the creation of their own web browser - Safari - which allowed very fast web browsing on the internet when you bought a Mac. Long time readers of this blog will remember that the PCG originally defined the internet as "dangerous", something many of us laughed a bit at since they had a website at that time.

So it doesn't really matter for Flurry-supporters what tool they must use as long as they can get in some tithes and offerings for their Armstrongite endeavours. Never mind the double standard because everything is interpreted by what fits the local minister.

Articles, when taken out of context, may appear very positive, but you need to have the full picture to get a grasp of how Armstrongism is presented in this 21st century...

The Last Great Day by Benjamin Grant Mitchell

Currently, I am reading the book The Nostradamus Prophecies by Mario Reading, but the next book to be devoured is The Last Great Day by Benjamin Grant Mitchell.

Ben is an author who experienced the cult of Armstrongism firsthand too, and therefore his book is an important part of telling the story about Armstrongism, so I am looking forward to reading this book. It came by airmail a couple of days ago - and it's only because Mario's book on the disappeared Nostradamus prophecies is so exciting that I couldn't quite avoid getting that book read first... :-)
