Recent Internet sightings:
HWA memorabilia on sale on eBay for $13.50. Of course, the person selling it probably got it for free.
UCG says, “You made a smart decision to check out UCG as the next step in your career. We have created this web page to tell you about the company and what it can offer you.” Oh, wait. That’s ucg.com, not .org.
Even more interesting is that I see nowhere on the ucg.com page what “UCG” stands for. Hmmmm. Used Coffee Grounds comes up as a hit. Well, too many more losses in the other UCG, and maybe … oh, never mind.
On a more serious note, LCG Arkansas has an HWA Sermon Library page. I honestly did not know that before.
On a definitely unfunny note, though, you can still get hits where the Terry Ratzmann episode gave some an occasion to talk about how LCG is a “cult”. Of course, they twist British Israelism into something it is not, yet again.
It looks like my suggestion for an “Intergalactic Church of God” is going to have to be nixed, as someone already has laid claim to that name. I was thinking of linking to it, but … well, even tongue-in-cheek can be too, well, cheeky.
Someone claims that Ben Franklin was the great grandfather of Joseph Smith, who founded Mormonism. Don’t know if it is true, but it is still interesting nonetheless.
The “Church of God International” that comes up first in Google is not CGI.
The same Google search has Grace Communion International on the first page.
Dating for Nerds has had two recent articles on the Philadelphia Church of God.
