Apostle Malm is all indignant today concerning those that profane his so called 'sabbath'. A reader of his site posted the following comment which they both obviously take great delight in seeing what happened to one of the cooks.
It seems that a COGWA congregation held a potluck/dance during UB. What irritates the writer and Apostle Malm is that they cancelled Sabbath services that day so that those who were driving a long distance could meet together in fellowship with a potluck and a dance.
But their biggest offense was that on the last day of UB several men cooked turkey, lamb and briskets to feed the congregation gathered for the last 'holy' day of UB. Pay particular attention to the last sentence. In the writers mind and in Apostle Malm, is evidence of God's righteous judgement in action for all the church to see! Profane the 'holy day' and suffer God's wrath!
The Sabbath before last day of Unleavened Bread, all services in North Carolina were canceled. ( COGWA ) A catered meal was planned $20.00 per person children free. And a dance that night. There were 190 or more present. Arranged by Ron Kelly. It was held in Burlington N C. A long Sabbath drive for many.
Then on last day Unleavened Bread a great feast was held in the Raleigh area. Several men cooked meat and trimmings for 85 app. Turkeys lamb and beef brisket was cooked on the High Day. 80 lbs of meat and all was eaten as reported to me per my inquiry. This is the congregation that Clyde Kilough pastors. Just learned that the gentleman doing the cooking had a mild heart attack and has to see a cardiologist.
Then Apostle Malm goes on with another snipe at a UCG elder that cracked a joke on the night of UCG's 'passover.'
It is also reported that a certain overseer of a Passover service in UCG BI was busy cracking jokes and appeared less than sober at the Passover.
This seems consistant with the general fixation on personal pleasure and pollution of the Sabbath and Holy Days extant in most COGs today.
Thank goodness I easily understood that all this law keeping silliness was not required of Church members when the changes started happening. The sad part is watching people who had a knee jerk reaction and now are far more legalistic than WCG ever was. They have placed a yoke and a burden on their members that robs them of all joy, happiness and peace. They will never be able to measure up to all the rules and regulations and will be constantly beating themselves up.
Sadly they perceive their only hope is their yearly 'passover' service where they think their slate has been wiped clean on that night. Their only problem is that the very next day or so they will break one of their laws and their suffering will begin all over again. It is a vicious endless cycle of hopelessness perpetuated by spiritually deviate church leaders.
