My employer gave me a couple of days off for vacation as a “reward” for completing a very large and stressful rush job on time, when a long time friend, who still attends the Worldwide Church of God, started talking to me about the Feast of Tabernacles. I had almost forgotten the whole holy day thing. Then I started to get curious.
” I sincerely believed in the brotherhood of man and that we were all equal in the eyes of God.”
Below in the video is Michael C. Garrett.
Mr. Garrett was a student at Ambassador college from 1969 – 1973 and was a minister from 1978 until 2013 within the Garner Ted church regimes. He has seen much of the behind the scenes of just how the Armstrong’s are.
He has know Mark Armstrong since 1969 had a fall out with him in 2013. Since then he has gone on an all out attack against Mark to expose him and his Intercontinental church. Although he has a church, with different doctrines from the old WCG, he greatly uses his platform to expose the old WCG, and most of all, Mark Armstrong and the ICG.
Currently he is doing a series on exposing Mark and his son Micheal. You can follow him on YouTube at the following page :
Owensboro Church of Jesus Christ.

If the Churches of God (COGs) are so wrong, why did I become a Worldwide Church of God (WCG) member in the first place? The answer, if we wish to analyze it from every angle, is somewhat complex, but it all comes down to one bottom line, one fundamental reason: I was tricked by dishonest literature.
I haven’t even tried to keep up with all the splinter groups that have spun off from the collapse of the WCG; the last count I heard was well over several hundred. Each and every one of these groups apparently thinks that only it is carrying on in Herbie’s footsteps. The largest of these groups probably numbers under 5000 members, scattered across how many continents, each struggling to put out some kind of publication, a few booklets, maybe a radio or TV program on half a dozen stations. Each one is in competition with all the others, one even suing others over the publication rights to Herbert’s writings.
And then, every year or so, one of those groups will self-destruct and splinter into even smaller congregations. Some have fragmented down to as few members meeting in someones living room, yet they boldly declare that they are “carrying on” to get the gospel out.
Is anything wrong with this picture? Doesn’t this seem like an exercise in futility?
