Iíve come out this cult as well and have been exposing it for a while - do you believe that Murray died in a lost state? Sobering to think about. Iíve never encountered anyone who has so prolifically butchered the scripture

Well, I believe he continued teaching up to the last day, and he never showed the least regret nor sign of turning.  I have not heard any reports of deathbed repentance or anything like that.  I don't believe in judging people to condemnation, but we know the judgment of God and from all "appearances"  he did not die well.  His judgment is with God now.  One scripture I have found instructive which he was fond of butchering is Revelation 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
It will be interesting to see how they handle the ministry after this.  Hopefully, they will allow Dennis to replace all of Arnold's teachings, Dennis has no broadcasting talent, and that would result in the fading of Shepherd's Chapel.  I do believe, based on Arnold's comments, that they replace the old teachings when they cover a new book.  He himself said he "never listened" to his teachings after he recorded them.  There was a built-in assumption that he would keep making new teachings.  Hopefully that will mean that Dennis will keep teaching and replace Arnold completely on the air.
But if they have any brains they will keep dragging his ghost out for years.  I think within a year or two the general trend will reveal itself.
