A broken record

I just skimmed their recent GN “How to Establish Home Guidelines” FD/MM/FM 3526 12/04.

I pulled out a few quotes. What a broken record. These same things were said in 1968, again in 1969, in 1970, in 1971, in 1972, in 1973, in 1974, in 1975, in 1976, in 1977, in the rest of the ‘70s, and all the ‘80s and 1990s.

When I was still a member in 1998, in 1999, and in 2000, the exact same things were said again and again. Expecting great things to happen, thinking this was going to be the year it was all gonna happen: me, my wife and my kids would stop having to live hand to mouth, we were gonna have all this success …that's one of the things that spurred me on to remain a member for so long. When I finally woke up and got sick of hearing the same things over and over and over again, without any of it ever really happening, that was one of the main reasons I finally made the break and left.

Just of few examples from their new pub with promises of great eternal glory:
30. You are about to inherit the Kingdom

106. I want to give you the gift of supply …..

112. Soon there will come a time when Satan's darkness will cover every land ….

127. Keep going to the light of a brighter day ....

136. This land .… it's rich in labor leaders, it's rich in potential disciples .....

154. This will be an explosion that will be heard around the world .....

157. You will see the Family grow like never before. You will see miracles of supply, protection‚ and healing.

194. I have given you power over all the power of the Enemy, and nothing will by any means stop you.
