Donald Tiger and the Philadelphia Church of God
After the death of 
Herbert W. Armstrong
(HWA) in January 1986,
Joseph W. Tkach, Sr.
(JWT, Sr.) began to lead the
WorldwideChurch of God
(WCG), and started to change its doctrines. In January 1992,
Donald H. Tiger
left the WCG to go with
Gerald R.Flurry
and his
Philadelphia Church of God
(PCG), which was formed in December 1989 and claimed to be holding on to theteachings of HWA. Strangely, the more
Donald Tiger
worked on the HWA CD project, the more out of favor he fell with the PCG, untilhe was eventually fired in November 1994, and then disfellowshipped in May 1997. After 
Donald Tiger
was disfellowshipped for giving someone a free copy of his
 Plain Truth
magazine CD, PCG members were told to destroy or return the HWA CDs that they hadreceived.
Gerald Flurry
planned to reprint only some of 
Herbert W. Armstrong's
writings, and started by reprinting a book called
 Mystery of the Ages
in 1997.The
Worldwide Church of God
went to court against the
Philadelphia Church of God
to try to prevent the PCG from reprinting
Herbert W. Armstrong's
last book, called
 Mystery of the Ages
. The U.S. District Court of the Central District of California decided infavor of the PCG. But, on September 18, 2000, this judgment was overturned on appeal by the Ninth U.S. Court of Appeals in Pasadena, by a vote of 2 to 1. For details of this latest decision, see
Worldwide Church of God V Philadelphia Church of God
(Case Number:99-55850, Date Filed: 09/18/00). On April 2, 2001, the U.S. Supreme Court decided to let stand this ruling by the Ninth U.S. Court of Appeals.The WCG had won the copyright court case. The PCG had lost the court case, and the Supreme Court had refused to hear the PCG'sappeal. The PCG was awaiting a trial to determine what damages it would have to pay the WCG. So the PCG made a deal to pay theWCG two million dollars (plus another million dollars that the PCG's insurance had paid) to buy the copyright to the writings of 
HerbertW. Armstrong
. The May 2003 edition of the PCG's
 Philadelphia Trumpet 
magazine announced the deal.
Gerald Flurry
then began toedit HWA's writings, including
 Mystery of the Ages
, to bring them into line with the doctrinal changes that he had made.

Donald Tiger and the Church of God
Around December 1997,
Donald H. Tiger
and some other former members of the
Philadelphia Church of God
formed a looseaffiliation known simply as
The Church of God
(TCOG), which now has a Web site at
http://www.t-cog.org
.
Donald Tiger
said thatthere was a problem with someone trying to stop the HWA CD project there too, and that he was asked to leave. It is interesting to hear that only 25% of the people who received
Donald Tiger's
HWA CDs ever gave any donation at all. People collectively seem to be ableto come up with many millions of dollars to support the various self-appointed leaders who want to suppress the HWA CDs, such as
Gerald Flurry
,
David Pack 
, etc.

Donald Tiger and the Restored Church of God
In the summer of 1999,
Donald H. Tiger
was contacted by
David C. Pack 
, who convinced
Donald Tiger
to go with
David Pack's
new
Restored Church of God
(RCOG), which had been formed in 1999 after 
David Pack 
had been fired from the
Global Church of God
(GCG).
Donald Tiger's
five original CDs had included some
Philadelphia Church of God
(PCG) literature, which was now removedfrom the latest ones.
Donald Tiger
wrote a
10-page letter dated April 8, 2000
, announcing what appeared to be good news about the
Herbert W. Armstrong Library and Archives
. It was the stated goal of the
Restored Church of God
to republish all the writings of 
Herbert W. Armstrong
that were in print at the time HWA died in 1986. But, around the very day of the first anniversary of the RCOG,
David Pack 
changed his mind and decided that no HWA CDs or booklets were to go out.
Don Tiger
was once again left on his own to

try to make the HWA CDs available.
David Pack 
gave a sermonette, dated May 27, 2000, called
CDs, Compromise, Conflict & Conscience
to explain his decision to reject
Donald Tiger's
HWA CD project. The basic reason seems to be that
David Pack 
, who had once said that he wanted the members of the
Restored Church of God
to be the most informed people around, doesn't want everyone to have access to all the
Worldwide Church of God
literature from the past. To help people to forget about
Don Tiger's
exhaustive HWA CD project,
David Pack 
announced in a June7, 2000 Update, to the surprise of some, "You are all aware that a CD of Mr. Armstrong's books, booklets, and reprint articles incirculation at the time of his death is already under way." But, he warned that, "While this is a very special project, it is also an extremelylarge one as well and will take a significant amount of time and effort to be able to do it properly." Only the wicked should hold their  breath while waiting for this new CD to be produced.On the
Restored Church of God's
Web site, a
June 5, 2000 statement
appeared about
Donald Tiger's
HWA CDs, which
David Pack 
was refusing to return to
Donald Tiger
. In it,
David Pack 
said that another party, which he did not name, was claiming ownership of theCDs. He said that the new (unnamed) party had been "most gracious and accomodating by any standard," and had "produced substantialcorroborating evidence that their claim is, indeed, valid." Of course,
David Pack 
didn't give any details. More information about
DavidPack 
, from those who know about him and his tricks, has been posted on an
Information
page at
http://home.neo.rr.com/lilshep/bill/information.html
at
Bill Sheppard's
Web site.An unsigned
June 10, 2000 Update
on the
Restored Church of God's
Web site happily announced the arrest of 
Donald Tiger
, andtried to make it sound like it was God's doing and not
David Pack's
. For the rest of the story, there is an article in the July 31, 2000 issueof 
The Journal 
newspaper with the heading
Friend says Church of God member wrongly indicted 
.At the time of 
Tiger's
troubles,
Thomas L. Munson
was the treasurer of the
Restored Church of God
. He did not like
David Pack's
 behavior and treatment of people like
Donald Tiger
. Around September 2000,
Thomas Munson
wrote a letter to the members of the
Restored Church of God
to tell them what was really going on. A copy of 
Thomas Munson's letter
is available here.The February 27, 2001 edition of 
The Cleveland Plain Dealer 
had an article about
Donald H. Tiger
called
 Man defends use of multiplenames
.The March 24, 2001 edition of a Medina, Ohio newspaper called
The Gazette
reported that
Donald H. Tiger
was sentenced to 6 monthsin jail for his use of aliases. The details are found in an article called
Wadsworth accountant sentence
.Lessons one can learn from this whole sad story:1. Pay your traffic tickets promptly. Don't just ignore them.2. Don't use phony driver's licenses to open bank accounts. It looks bad.3. Don't give
David Pack 
any information that could be used against you. It will be.
They thought he was a goner but the Tiger came back 
Occasionally, one hears about some unbalanced religious type who read what Jesus said in Matthew 25:31-46 about being hungry,thirsty, a stranger, naked, sick, and in prison. Yet, the unbalanced type isn't interested in helping the hungry, thirsty, stranger, naked, or the sick, especially if they are believers. The unbalanced type also doesn't seem to understand that the good guys mentioned in the Bibleended up in prison for their right beliefs and good behavior, not for their wrong beliefs and depravity. So, rather than doing any good toany believer, the unbalanced type wants to go visit unbelieving, unrepentant serial killers and rapists in prison. But, will anybodyremember or care about people like
Don Tiger
?Due to these circumstances,
Donald H. Tiger's
HWA CD project was put on hold for a while. During this time,
Nyal Bartch
stepped inand made it possible for people to download the contents of 
Don Tiger's
 
 HWA Literature CD
off the Internet from a Web site called
The Ultimate Church of God Links Page
.After 
Donald Tiger
got out of jail, he put his Web site, called the
Herbert W. Armstrong Library and Archives
, back up at
http://www.HerbertWArmstrong.org
.

Tiger's Web site disappears again--and returns yet again!
Unfortunately, around April 2003,
Donald Tiger's
Web site, called the
Herbert W. Armstrong Library and Archives
, disappearedagain. But, by July 2003 it was back up again at
http://www.HerbertWArmstrong.org
with the following explanation posted at hisWeb site:"This web site has been out of commission due to the actions of those who are opposed to the free distribution of thecomplete and unedited works of Herbert W. Armstrong. Please resubmit any requests for the CDs that were not received,as all previous email requests were lost. Please allow approximately four weeks for delivery."
