In 2006, Charles Bryce who was in GCG and LCG left, and formed the Enduring Church of God (En COG). (More news specifically on LCG is at the News of the Living Church of God page.) A couple of people, like Norman Edwards (Servants' News), left GCG well before the 1998 takeover.
I have received two emails related to the health of EnCOG's Charles Bryce.
Here is what seems to be the situation according to one email:
It appears that he
did not have an anurism, but had an inner ear problem that caused him to start vomiting -- he
could not stop and he
went in to the hospital so they could control it.
is feeling good and on his
In September 2006, Syd Hull left LCG for RCG, but left RCG in 2007 to be with Charles Bryce (who left LCG in late 2006).
At the Feast of Tabernacles in Oxnard in 2006, Charles Bryce
essentially told LCG members that makeup was no big deal and no one should leave the church because of it.
In November 2006, he
mind and left and proclaimed makeup as a major issue.
At the end of December 2006 he
came up with the Enduring Church of God
When Syd Hull left RCG to join EnCOG in early 2007, Charles Bryce claimed that his group would finish the work to proclaim the gospel to the world as a witness.
As I stated in the letter--the fruits were not there---what I felt they needed to be, honesty and uncompromising---after conversing with a minister there and trying to get some answers on some of their teachings from Mr. Bryce
himself, sending him a letter with questions and very humbly asking for his
response ---for my understanding and benefit---he never even responded.
Sad to say, it is no surprise to me that his
web site is not up, nor is it a surprise that he
still is not proclaiming the Gospel with any kind of significance, in order to help others.
So here is Mr. Bryce
, saying the gospel is not for this age but for the future, while denying that Salvation is a part of the gospel, but says it is a "different" message, a direct contradiction to HWA
This may be why, 6 months after he
promised to begin on his
own web site to preach the gospel, it is still non-existent.
As anyone can see, if they are really looking for the truth, Charles Bryce
has rejected the teaching of HWA
as well as denying what scriptures clearly reveal, written by other Apostles. (Mark 1:14-15 and ch.
16:15-16) So it is no real wonder why Mr. Bryce
has not lived up to other promises he
3. As of this morning, Charles Bryce's En COG
still does not have any media or internet presence.
An unofficial "LCG" forum has a letter purportedly from Charles Bryce
I feel that Charles Bryce really left LCG for the same real reason that Syd Hull did (David Pack is a different matter)--personal pride.
seems to be following UCG's pattern by trying to attract members first and then later figure out how public proclamation fits into his
mission (RCG acted somewhat similarly).
An article of related interest may be Are the Laodiceans the Modern Sadducees and Pharisees?
I will state here that I understand that many things are easier said than done--undoubtedly Charles Bryce
is now working on many things.
And eventually, I believe he
will get a website. (FWIW, I set up the initial cogwriter site in a day or so at no charge and with no cost--it originally was an AOL free site.
