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:
...
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.

Hank Hanegraaff: Greg Albrecht, who is editor in chief of Plain Truth Ministries . . .
...
Tkach and Mr. Albrecht] are dear friends and people that I have not only grown to love but people that I've grown to respect.
...
As always, it's a delight to have you, Joe, and you, Greg, in the studio.
...
And you have some great people around you as well, Greg Albrecht, you are a friend and a joy to be around. I have enjoyed just giving you hugs because the strong bond that we've been able to share in the Lord Jesus Christ in whom you are trusting 100 percent.
Greg Albrecht: Amen, Hank.
...
Greg Albrecht: But I would just like to add to what Joe was saying.
...
Hank Hanegraaff: So many people have a hard time, Greg, relating to the fact that an organization can make a change, and yet organizations are just people, and Christ is in the business of changing the hearts of people, and those changes are permanent changes.
...
Greg Albrecht: Amen.
...
Greg Albrecht: It's The Plain Truth magazine.
...
We're almost out of time for this segment of The Bible Answer Man broadcast, but those who have just tuned in ought to know that in the studio we have Greg Albrecht, who is the editor in chief, I don't know if that's the right title, maybe we can clarify that after we get off the air here, but he is leading The Plain Truth magazine.

Tkach and Albrecht.

Greg Albrecht: Thank you.
...
You're on with Greg and with Joseph.
...
Greg had a comment as well.
Greg Albrecht: Joanne, this is Greg Albrecht.
Joanne: Hi. [breathlessly]
Greg Albrecht: Hi. I also can hear very clearly the pain that you're going through. and it's not just a cute saying but, you know, we humans can feel one another's pain, but only Jesus can heal our pain. And as you are a Christian and you believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and as Savior, your profession of faith is that He holds all these things and knows all these things and will take care of all these things.
...
Hank Hanegraaff: Irene, let's talk about that for a second because I don't think that either Joe or Greg would say that it is not wonderful to keep the feast days, but they would say that there is the next step that you can take and that is not focusing in on the symbol but recognizing that the symbol has been fulfilled through the substance.
...
Greg Albrecht: Talk about cognitive dissonance.
...
Hank Hanegraaff: Irene brought up some good questions for Joe and for Greg.
...
Greg, you guys walk a tightrope here, I notice constantly the tension that you must feel between those who on the one hand would say, look, you're not hard enough on Herbert W. Armstrong.
...
Greg Albrecht: Right, Hank.
...
Greg Albrecht: I'd just like to say that those changes that have occurred in the Worldwide Church of God have been the work of the Holy Spirit and a remarkable and historic reformation of God, a miracle.
...
Greg Albrecht: Joe, before you go on I might just say that Hank's going to buy us dinner for that testimony. [laughter]
...
Greg, Joe will get to your calls and try to answer them, so please be patient with us.
...
And in that group of people were, like, Greg Albrecht, who's with us, and myself and a few others.
...
Greg was finding that in his personal study. Others were finding that in their personal study.
...
Hank Hanegraaff: Greg, you've had the privilege, now, of leading a magazine that has had some pretty spectacular subscription rates, I think somewhere close to three million at one point, if I recall--
...
Greg Albrecht: Eight million.
...
Greg Albrecht: Amen. Grace alone, faith alone, Jesus Christ alone.
...
Patrick: Greg, you know something?
...
Greg Albrecht: Patrick, Greg Albrecht. I'd just like to say to you, first of all, nice to talk to you and thank you for calling. What we have seen in the Worldwide Church of God is that there have been something on the order 110 to 120 different splits from the Worldwide Church of God since 1934.
Patrick: Amazing.
Greg Albrecht: All of them, at this present time, are small.
...
When Greg and I use the term Armstrongism we don't mean that in totally a negative way, because we recognize that he taught some good things as well.
...
Hank Hanegraaff: Some of you might be wondering what in the world is Hank Hanegraaff doing in the studio with Joseph Tkach and Greg Albrecht, and I can tell you very simply what I'm doing in the studio with Joseph Tkach and Greg Albrecht is sharing fellowship with brothers in Christ.

...
Hello, Joe and Greg.
...
Greg Albrecht: Hi, Randy.
...
Greg Albrecht: Yeah, Randy, I would just like to say--Greg Albrecht--that there are a lot of people who feel that nothing short of unearthing the grave of Herbert Armstrong and burning his body would be enough for us to do proper penance, and then maybe we would be on probation for five or 10 years before we would be accepted into their particular group or criteria of doctrines that they held to be the pale of orthodoxy.
...
Greg Albrecht: --It's not our providence [sic], and we believe that people feel they have that right, then they can do that, but we believe that we're all going to stand before the mercy seat of God, and He will take care of us.
...
Greg Albrecht: That's right.
...
Greg Albrecht: That's right.
...
Joseph Tkach Jr. and Greg Albrecht in unison: Thank you, Jackie.
...
Greg Albrecht: Jackie, this is Greg Albrecht.
...
Greg Albrecht: This is, Jackie, the new Worldwide Church of God, and let me just put a plug in. Come back and visit sometime.
Jackie: Well, that was my question to you. I've been a Christian now in a solid church for 10 years, and I'm 39 now, so I've been gone from the church for a while, there's just so many people I grew up with from the time I was a baby until--I'm just wondering could I go back and visit?
Greg Albrecht: Jackie, you're welcome.
...
Look, I had dinner with Joe and Greg on numerous occasions.
...
Greg Albrecht: I knew he was going to say that.
...
Greg Albrecht: Jackie, I just want you to know that crab cakes is where I draw the line.
...
Greg Albrecht: And, Hank, not only are people surprised at what's coming out of our mouths.
...
Dear Mr. Hanegraaff, I'm a member of the Worldwide Church of God and, as I stated in my previous letter to you, I became interested in your organization after you first interviewed Mr. Joseph Tkach and Mr. Greg Albrecht on the broadcast The Bible Answer Man about a year ago.
...
Greg Albrecht: And that's really one of the untold stories, Hank, about the gentleman who wrote there.
...
There's a myth that exists in, not just in our fellowship, but throughout all denominations, that you have to have a lot of money and construct a building or a sanctuary--you know, you look through the book of Acts and you see they were meeting in houses, and you couldn't stop the spreading, friend to friend, as Greg alluded earlier, beggar telling another beggar where to get the bread.
...
I want to go to Greg, Pasadena, Calif., KKLA. Hi, Greg.
Greg: Hi. Good afternoon, gentlemen. I have a question about teaching on Israel and also about Herbert W. Armstrong's former teaching that the unconditional promises to Israel can be traced to the scattered tribes that ended up in Western Europe and can be identified with the United States.
Hank Hanegraaff: Greg, since that's a hot button for you, why don't you tackle it?
...
Greg Albrecht: Greg, my name is Greg also, Greg Albrecht, so let me briefly talk to you, speak to your issues there.
...
Greg: Do you hold to supersessionism or replacement theology?
Greg Albrecht: No, we don't.
Greg: So the tribes of Israel spoken of in Revelation represent the tribes of Israel?
Greg Albrecht: Well, now, are you dealing with the nation of Israel and what we would believe about the nation of Israel today?

What’s wrong with being religious?

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, 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.)
