Is David C. Pack the end-time apostle?

    Has anyone heard of the pastor general over the Restored Church of God, David C. Pack?
    He claims the Restored Church of God is the seventh and final stage of God's true church He promised to build, and that it could never be destroyed.

    The Restored Church of God was formed after the passing of Herbert W. Armstrong, who lead the Worldwide Church of God.
    They claim the Worldwide Church of God was the Philadelphia church era, and now they are the Laodicea era.

    David C. Pack, just like Herbert W. Armstrong, has been called the biggest false prophet in all of Christianity.
    Dare I say, Jehovah Witnesses and Mormons are even more accepted that the Restored Church of God.

    What brought all this up, is we are doing a Bible study of Matthew chapter 24 here on Talk Jesus, and Mr. Pack claims the only way to escape the coming tribulation, is to escape to safety with the Jews who are told to flea from Judea.
    When the abomination of desolation stands in the Holy place, they all plan to board a airplane and fly into the wilderness. (Revelation 12:14)

    On their webpage, you can read all of his books he has written for free. He has over 80 books, I think.
    You can also watch his videos on Youtube.
    I dare any of you to watch his Youtube video titled, "Is there an ever-burning Hell?"

    Now, I'm not saying I believe he is the end-time apostle, but I am curious if any of you guys have heard of this guy.
    Have you watched any of his videos, or read his books? If so, what do you think of them?
    Do you have any contradictions to any of his teachings?

    Thanks, guys! God bless!
     
  2. I've never heard of the guy, but decided to look him up. After listening to him for a little while it seemed as though I was listening to a college instructor regarding a history lesson.

    Now, even though he quotes scripture, it seems to me that instead of being a believer of what is written in the bible, he is simply talking about it. Matthew 24:4-5 reads "Watch out that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many."

    Pack has proclaimed himself as an apostle, and has openly claimed the two witnesses will come from his church and it will be him who will train them in their duties. It should be noted that there is a huge following of Pack, but also a huge crowd of disbelievers.

    Matthew 4:1-11 describes Jesus being tested in the wilderness and the knowledge satan had of the bible. This is true, satan knows every scripture and every passage in the bible, but is able to manipulate its meaning.

    I do not trust the word of man, as it says in Romans 3:4 "...let God be true and every human being a liar..." and Psalm 20:7 "Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God."

    Pack pays himself $125,000 tax free salary and lives a luxurious lifestyle. He has been the author of over 20 books, and has established over 50 congregations. Psalms 49:12-13 reads: "People, despite their wealth, do not endure; they are like the beasts that perish. This is the fate of those who trust in themselves, and of their followers, who approve their sayings."

    But, perhaps I should digress. Surely someone of such great following by many and wisdom when it comes to scripture couldn't be wrong, right? Proverbs 10:22 reads: "The blessing of the Lord brings wealth, and he adds no trouble to it." Wouldn't that prove Mr. Pack is receiving the Lord's blessing through his ministries? Proverbs 16:18-19 reads: "Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall. Better to be lowly in spirit along with the oppressed than to share plunder with the proud." I'm not sure about anyone else, but I don't see Mr. Pack as being humble or meek, but rather self-exalting and extremely proud. But, that's just my opinion.
     
  3. To anyone in or thinking about attending the Restored Church of God please watch these videos. You will hear Dave Pack in his own words from his sermons prove himself a false prophet and actually call himself A TYPE OF CHRIST! Please spread these far and wide so that no one else will be a victim.
    Thank you

  4. No but theres all sorts of wacky bible cults around these days.

    You dont have to worry if you not in Judea. Just tell them youve had your tribulation thank you very much the holy place is now within you and see if that blows their mind.
