This video below was made before YouTube existed back in 2005. The first among many that was critical of the cult. Fast track forward and we see many creators taking their pot shots at Herbert, Pack, little Bobby Thiel, and of course, old 6-pack Flurry and his orangutan son, little Stevie.
The quality of downloads back in those days were of poor quality. I have cleaned this video up somewhat, but I will state: Best viewed NOT in full screen.
Innocence lost. Many of us newbies, including myself, believed in and respected the God we were taught about in our early years. Years that were outside the confines of armstrongism. Most of us I would imagine had a religious background (conventional Christianity) from either our childhood or our early adult lives. I certainly did. We may have laughed at the obvious religious charlatans running their horse and pony shows over at the Trinity Broadcast System, and laugh we did. We thought that we could never be deceived by the religious charlatan. We thought wrong in our arrogance. So we spent time in the gulag participating in the rituals that we were told “pleased” God. After a time, when the scam was exposed, we accepted that we had been taken as fools for the benefit of unscrupulous men.
