Plain Truth Ministries—They Try Hard!, 14 Jan 2015 [cached]
PTM has a "Plain Truth Ministries Partner Newsletter" and it is authored by Greg Albrecht, the host of Plain Truth Commentary. Albrecht has been noted to have a voice that sounds almost identical to Hank Hanegraaff of the Bible Answer Man.
The only address that Greg Albrecht gives at the end of the weekly Plain Truth Commentary radio program (along with the website and a toll free number), is PTM, Pasadena4, 91129. The Plain Truth Commentary (a.k.a. Plain Truth Radio) and Plain Truth magazine are affiliated with the Worldwide Church of God (now known as Grace Communion International). In fact, Greg Albrecht is their Media Director.5
While relating a Greek novel called The Greek Passion, Albrecht writes tells about several things that are quite disturbing, three of which we will quote:
Our research indicates that the most visible influential spokesperson for the "transformation" campaign has been, from its inception, Gregory R. Albrecht. Presently Executive Director of The Plain Truth Ministries (PTM), Albrecht spearheads public relations, media and marketing of WCG products. He is the man in the forefront of all current WCG maneuvers. (From OIU 6, Pt. 2)
Evidently PTM did not want others to know that they have been affiliated with WCG, or that Albrecht is known as WCG Media Director. [Note: In Feb. 2005 The Worldwide News in the United States changed its name to WCG Today. In May 2006 it was changed to Together. A few years later Together was no longer available Their magazine is now Christian Odyssey.]
Greg Albrecht is president of Plain Truth Ministries and editor-in-chief of Plain Truth magazine. He, along with WCG's history revision, is mentioned in many places on the ESN website.

Greg Albrecht alone was interviewed on the program on 5-1-98.
What’s wrong with being religious?, 28 July 2004 [cached]
In Bad News Religion (World Publishing, $14.99, ISBN 0-5291-1954-4), author Greg Albrecht discusses how legalism drains the joy and the life out of believers.
"Legalism seduces us by promising that we can earn our own way into God's good graces.Performance-based religion is a harsh and stern slave driver," writes Albrecht."Bad News Religion is based on the conviction that if we do more and try harder we will be able to manipulate and obligate God into accepting our good deeds as at least partial payment for our salvation."
In this liberating new book, Albrecht addresses important issues that will protect readers and their faith from legalism.He discusses…
Greg Albrecht is the executive director of Plain Truth Ministries, host of Plain Truth radio and editor of Plain Truth magazine.He is available for interviews on Bad News Religion, and the topics listed above.

Plain Truth magazine's president, Greg Albrecht, who did have prior ties to the WWCG church started his own independent ministry in 1996 called Plain Truth Ministries (visit it here:, which is a media ministry that exists to rescue people from religion and bring them to freedom in Christ. The magazine is not connected in any way with the former World Wide Church of God and not supported or affiliated with any denomination or church organization. The magazine's authors, and those they serve are from across the Christian spectrum; many of which do not attend a "brick-and-morter" church. Greg also subscribes to our TruthForFree blog posts and I've enjoyed a few nice conversations with him through email. Great guy, great magazine, great service to the Body of Christ!

Greg Albrecht, director of church relations for the WCG, was quoted in The Los Angeles Times as saying: "It's historic . . . because we have been an exclusive, separatist group not seeking any kind of affiliation or accommodation with what we've called 'the world.'
"On our part it signals a new openness and a realization that we are not the sole body of Christ. We're simply by his grace a small part of it."
Mr. Albrecht also said that acceptance by the NAE did not mean the WCG had completed its "reformation."
He pointed out that the headquarters congregation last month held its first-ever "Resurrection Sunday" Easter service.
Mr. Albrecht also said that several WCG congregations are beginning to meet on Sunday as well as holding the traditional Saturday services.
(Although Mr. Albrecht didn't mention it, at least one WCG congregation has disassociated itself from the WCG and begun meeting on Sundays. See THE JOURNAL, April 30.)
