Plain Truth Magazine « Articles By Dave « TruthForFree.com

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: www.ptm.org), 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!

David Covington's Resignation Letter to Joseph W. Tkach

Also be sure and read: David Covington's Letter to Greg R. Albrecht
In August 1995, Greg Albrecht, editor of the Plain Truth, Norman Shoaf and I met in Pasadena to plan our conference sessions. In this past year, I have had opportunities to interact with the vast majority of U.S., Canadian and Caribbean field ministry, and to have numerous private discussions with you, Mike Feazell, director Church Administration, and Greg Albrecht. I love Mr. Albrecht, appreciate Mr. Feazell's efforts and validate what you have tried to accomplish. Over a year ago (February 17, 1995), when I addressed with Greg Albrecht my perception that the changes were superficial in nature and that structural change was needed, I was told I ought to consider the incredible distance the WCG has come and what other Christians are calling a miracle. When I confronted Greg Albrecht about this problem (February 17, 1995), he stated that you would not have been able to accomplish what you have without your [power] structure. At the conference in Portland, Oregon, at the end of March 1996, he reiterated that point saying he and Mike Feazell had just discussed this matter. He said, "We are using the `old factory,' to build the new one. During dinner in Portland, Oregon (May 23, 1996), with you, Mike Feazell, Greg Albrecht, and Janis Hutchinson, I was surprised to hear Ruth Tucker make the statement that you (the leadership) had completely changed the whole course of the church on its membership. To my best recollection, Greg Albrecht replied "we can't say that because there might be a lawyer present. I was flabbergasted when Greg Albrecht mentioned to me in Portland (March 23, 1996) that his budget for the Plain Truth had just been cut from $16 million to $4 million. I had assumed it had been cut much lower several years ago. After dinner in Portland, Oregon (March 23, 1996), you, Mike Feazell, Greg Albrecht, Don Mears and I were out in the hall talking. Greg Albrecht, in a conversation with Norman Shoaf and myself (February 17, 1995), rationalized saying that you had to consider the livelihood of hundreds of employees.

OIU Volume Six - Pt. 2 of 7

But let's look beneath the surface and see what Tkach, Albrecht, Feazell and the other front men have been up to these past few years.
Various WCG Press Releases have espoused the WCG message and myths along with several radio and television interviews with Tkach and Albrecht. WCG propagandists: Tkach, Albrecht, Feazell et al, have spent large sums over the past two years scurrying about the United States and abroad on a major publicity campaign. 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. Gregory R. Albrecht: [NOTE: Greg Albrecht in Transformed by Truth tells how he started going to Azusa because Ambassador College was "pursuing accreditation" and he needed at least a master's degree. He was asked to get one and received it in 1977. He does not say who asked him to get this. See chap. Keep reading below for more on Albrecht and his being at Azusa.] "Mr. Albrecht was born in Herlington, Kan., June 8, 1947. "His family moved to Pasadena in 1956, and Mr. Albrecht, his sister and brother attended Imperial Schools. "After high school graduation in 1965, Mr. Albrecht attended Ambassador College. After two years he transferred to the Bricket Wood, England, campus, where he met his future wife, Karen Kruegger. They were married during graduation weekend, June 15, 1969. "He was asked to be a ministerial trainee in England shortly before graduation, and later pastored several churches there. " 'After being ordained, there were two things that I really wanted to do, though I never voiced them to anyone but my wife,' Mr. Albrecht said. 'One was to teach freshman Bible at Ambassador College, and the other was to be dean of students. In the years to come, I was able to do both.' "Mr. Albrecht was ordained a local elder June 9, 1973 and returned to Pasadena to teach theology classes at Ambassador College in 1974. It seems most odd that this article did not relay that Albrecht had attended the ecumenical, Trinitarian, Methodist and Pentecostal aligned Christian College: Azusa Pacific, for his M.A.[UPDATE: Azusa Pacific University, considered a theologically liberal institution, is also a member of Willow Creek Association. Read: Willow Creek Hegelian Dialectic & the New World Order for more info on WCA.] It is also puzzling that Albrecht makes light of his weighty role as faculty member which started immediately after his Bricket Wood graduation and followed by a top Administrator Officer appointment in Pasadena CA. Each Envoy depicts large colorful pictures of the most significant leaders through the 1970s and 1980s. We find Albrecht among the most privileged positions, year after year. We also highlight that Albrecht was in the heart of the 1970's corruption that led to international exposure encircling financial, sexual and doctrinal corruption. When Stanley R. Rader's assistant, Joseph W. Tkach, Sr., assumed the role of Pastor General, Albrecht maintained his critical influence with Tkach, Sr., Tkach, Jr. and Mike Feazell. Why was Albrecht not disclosing his intimate association with Azusa Pacific? How did he qualify for an M.A. without an accredited B.A. degree? How did Albrecht assume faculty and administrative roles as a babe out of college? Most importantly, how could Greg Albrecht tell his audiences that he "never realized there were others speaking 'truth' "? So many vital questions without answers. What is certain, is while Gregory R. Albrecht resides a few feet from one of Stanley Rader's lavish (church purchased) homes at 360 Waverly Drive in Pasadena, he continues to intentionally deceive his audience every time he testifies his innocence and ignorance that he never knew the church was doing wrong, abusing members, or making errors. The report, Transformed By Truth or Transformed by Lies?? will bullet historical events that demonstrate Gregory R. Albrecht manages his life through a veil of deception! Greg Albrecht, along with James Walker, President of an evangelical anti-cult watch group, Watchman Fellowship, were guests on James Robison's Life Today Ministry television show aired in Texas. We find Albrecht's comments most interesting and conflicting with the actual WCG chronology. Robison: comments on The Plain Truth magazine: Albrecht: Finally it's the Plain Truth, the Plain Truth; finally the Plain Truth. Albrecht: We give God the glory, we know it wasn't done by us; it was done in spite of us. Albrecht:I believe Herbert Armstrong was sincere. Albrecht: Yes, in fact we give Mr. Armstrong kudos for that. He insisted on quality, and it was a quality program. Albrecht:Well, we didn't see this until Mr. Armstrong died in 1986. Albrecht: Oh definitely, definitely, he had the power and control and in fact as I told people, I didn't know it at the time, but I gave him that kind of control over my life. I willingly believed he was the only true apostle, the end time apostle, the man whom, through whom, God revealed things that no one else knew--and that we were the only true church. Albrecht: Oh yes, oh yes. I don't know if in his heart of hearts. I don't wish to judge the man. I don't know if in his heart of hearts he did, but in practical fact, we did as the Worldwide Church of God, added. Albrecht:I would say by ya, the ya, late 80s, I began to see that there were some very, very wrong things about what I had believed all my life. [All grammar is Gregory Albrecht's; bold emphasis added for clarity.] What makes this debasing is that Albrecht appears to treat the whole issue as a light-hearted big joke. Notice how he states he didn't see the wrongs until Herbert W. Armstrong died, and that he started sorting wrong teachings out in the late 1980s. Albrecht, a WCG evangelist minister, a THEOLOGY instructor, the Dean of Students for the entire WCG college and top administrator operating out of plush, wealth lavished offices, denies knowing that the "WCG" was teaching wrongs? Added to overt, flagrant denial is the fact that Albrecht attended AZUSA PACIFIC (Trinitarian, ecumenical) University and obtained a Masters in theology. Albrecht alludes to early "changes" as "minor! I hope you can understand how this same "historical" scene parallels what the Tkach / Albrecht / Feazell / Earle / Brown / Halford--and Hulme / Dick / Kubik / Meredith / McNair / Adair, et al., are currently doing to the thousands who have lost their lives under their dictatorial, totalitarian, mind-bending, fear inducted government. Does Albrecht think they did?


David Covington's Letter to Greg R. Albrecht

David Covington's Letter to Greg R. Albrecht
It boldly confronts Greg Albrecht's twisting, untrue statements concerning Covington's true motives and the fact that Worldwide Church of God was functioning as an abusive system. Greg R. Albrecht Worldwide Church of God Pasadena, CA 91129 Greg, I have heard your testimony, and believe your heart is right. Greg, you know this to be a lie. On two different occasions I offered to facilitate the workshop I was giving to the ministry to your administration (Messrs. Tkach, Feazell, Albrecht, Rice, Schnarrenberger, Dick, Schnippert, Lapacka, Kelly, etc.). "I heard some wonderful comments about your sessions in Palm Springs, and am delighted that your ministry is touching hearts and minds among our own ministry" (Greg Albrecht, Plain Truth Editor-in-Chief, December 22, 1995). "Ever since the Portland trip, Greg Albrecht has been very enthused about our involvement with you in producing a video on spiritual abuse" (Larry Omasta, Production Services, April 11, 1996). In closing, Greg, you have confessed publicly on several occasions in the past year to be a recovering spiritual abuser, legalist and hypocrite, even when in a position of religious authority as the Dean of Students of Ambassador College.
