I think all the Churches of God need to drop their silly prefixes to their name and join together under one united name. The Fear-Mongering Church of God. That moniker fits all the various 700 splinter groups. They all exist because of the fear they instill in members.
Typical Armstrongite rhetoric states: God is angry at the world and the Church of God. You are never quite good enough to be able to please God. Jesus delays his coming because it is your fault you are not ready. On and on the list could go.
Malm is instilling fear into his acolytes with threats about the law. No one on this entire earth could EVER keep the law and never has. They will not and cannot do so in Malm's group. It is an impossibility. Even Malm breaks every single law he promotes.
Flurry instills fear into his members and "college" students. They are so fearful that they turn their backs on family members and friends. They refuse to talk to children, grand children, parents, and grandparents all because Gerald told them not to. They are fearful that if they do they will be kicked out of the Church.
Pack does the same with his small flock as does Meredith and all the others out there. Fear reigns supreme in the Church of God.
However, there is one person who does not live in fear and claims he does not promote fear. That person is Bob Thiel. God's greatest theologian on earth today in regards to end-time prophecy, the Mayan calendar and all things concerning Catholicism. He has written several books now taking advantage of the fear base.
Your suggestion that I write to generate money for any organization is false. And you should know that. I also do not live in fear (cf. Luke 12:32). on Malm Asks: Can A Mad Man With A Nuclear Bomb Cause An Earthquake?Really? Really?
Get a load of just today's postings on one entry:
Some astronomers are warning that comets could cause a type of electronic Armageddon
Large sun-grazing comets could bring on the sort of global electronics meltdown usually associated with electromagnetic pulse weapons or a full-scale nuclear exchange.Thiel has hundreds of fear related blog entries up and very very little about
The results of an EMP incident would be catastrophic:
Solar Storm Warning: Researchers announced that a storm is coming—the most intense solar maximum in fifty years.
- · The U.S. power grid could be destroyed;
- · Planes would crash;
- · Water and sewerage systems would fail;
- · Banks could not access their records;
- · Transportation systems would be inoperable;
- · The internet would go down;
- · Emergency services would severely hampered.
A large comet hitting the earth would also seem to have similar effects to that of a medium-sized asteroid, but also could have electronic impact. And having something actually hit the earth and do massive damage is predicted in the Bible. But the Wormwood comet will not possibly hit the earth prior to 2018 (for some details, please see When Will the Great Tribulation Begin? 2012, 2013, or 2014?). The staging for armies in Armageddon (Revelation 16:16, and related to the sixth trumpet of Revelation 8:13-17) happens shortly after Wormwood (third trumpet) hits, hence ‘Armageddon’ will not happen in prior to 2018.
Although the biblical Wormwood does not have to be a comet, it sounds more like one than an asteroid.
