Which is More Evil: Disney and Harry Potter or National Geographic and Rotary International?

According to Apostle Malm the answer is ALL of the above!  In the eyes the self righteous holier-than-thou modern day Pharisee who is incapable of keeping all of the law, it is easy to accuse others of being evil.

Disney’s Fantasia, the Sorcerers Apprentice etc are designed to make the most appalling evil as appealing and attractive as possible.  Harry Potter is the same, while National Geographic is designed to use the most beautiful photography to push evolution.  Society is filled with such deception, seeking to make evil appear as attractive and good.

The apostle has been on a rant lately about the Rotary Club International.  According to the apostle it is a evil satanic organization that is an arm of the Masonic Lodge.  What brought this tirade on was Victor Kubik's latest UCG editorial telling about his attendance at a Rotary meeting and how the local businesses were eager to talk to him about UCG.  Church members have been involved in Rotary International  for well over 40 years now.  Not once has any of them been subjected to Masonic rituals.

The apostle continues claims that COG members who are part of Rotary and who do good works are partaking of Satanic values.

Satan always presents himself as an angel of light and goodness, in order to deceive.
We are to keep ourselves away from such worldliness and become wise in godly things.
Jas 1:27   Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. [We are not to be entangled in this world's evils.
Romans 16:19. . . .    but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.

The Masonic movement is responsible for much of the evil in this world, which evil and rebellion against God, they hide behind so called "Good Works" organizations.  By being a part of that, you are helping the great evil of the Mystery Religion and its rebellion against God.

It has always been easy for COG members and leaders to label anyone outside the group as 'the other,' 'the evil ones,' 'the reprobates,' or 'the ungodly.'  They did this while being a part of an organization that was rotten to the core.  A church that sadly destroyed marriages, divided families can caused countless deaths.

A reader on Malm's blog responded with this:

There is paganism all around us. There are pagan symbols on the dollar bill. If we are of the faith, and strong, then it is all “meat before idols”. Such things cannot harm us. Certainly we do not worship in a pagan fashion, or deify paganism. However, none of us , in his faith, are somehow sullied or diminished by a symbol. Symbols do not make us “unclean”. We do not endorse the symbols, we do not embrace the symbols, but we certainly should praise and feel free to associate with fellow human beings that are practicing good works, when they are found, and cooperate with such if it is beneficial and aiding in the alleviation of suffering. This is what the Rotary does. This does not mean that we are compromising with the truths of God, that we hold dear, when we do so.

Why are Church of God members scared of everything they come across?  Living a life of constant fear is exhausting.  It's no wonder all the COG's are hurting for members and money.

The Church of God thinks its public face to the world is one of truth and light and then along comes another COG idiot like apostle Malm who makes complete fools of the entire Church!

It really is impressive how the COGs, who all pride themselves on being so good at knowing what is going on down here, and so good at being able to differentiate between good and evil, in practice get good and evil so twisted up into a pretzel (along with their knickers!) For the most part, apostle Malm is old school, hardline Armstrongist, and his rantings reflect many beliefs common to Armstrongism to this day, although it's rare nowadays to find so many of them embodied in a single individual. Most probably prefer to keep this stuff within the confines of sabbath services, not splashed across the covers of their propaganda materials, just as how scientologists begin with a "stress test," not the story of Xenu, the alien overlord. Not Malm! He's happy to let the cat out of the bag.

Isa 5:20 says "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil..." None moreso than James Malm claim to live up to every word of the bible, but in the eyes of Armstrongism, everyone in the world is guilty of this except for themselves and the members of their dwindling organization. So, putting boots on the ground to help those in need becomes unadulterated evil while all the little microcults with all their abuses intact transform themselves into angels of light and goodness through imaginary connections to ethereal fictional beings. Better to drink the poison that's been blessed than eat the apple that's been picked with unwashed hands.

How does apostle Malm justify using *gasP* the internet to spread his glorious message of purity? I can't think of anything with more impure associations than the internet.

Well said! It's also more than that. At it's core, it's arrogant. It's excusing anti-social behavior with claims of righteousness, which lead to exclusivity and isolation.

Then it becomes self-perpetuating, and the further one descends into such madness, the tougher it becomes to pull out.

Good call, Usher, about calling good evil. It's one of the least-talked about, but most egregious, legacies of Herbert Armstrong and his COG movement.

The LCG, UCG, RCG, CGWA, CGG, CCG, all the rest of the alphabet soup (AE) [one is tempted to throw in PHP, but the reference would be lost on the Internet unsavy] along with random Apostles, Evangelists and Prophets are designed to make the most appalling evil as appealing and attractive as possible.

Fasting for Dollars comes to mind.

Stupid Crazy British Israelism -- the key to false prophets -- comes to mind (there are no lost tribes, but apparently there are lost consciences and lost minds of Armstrongists).

Backstabers, Abusers, Imposters, Takers, Exploiters, Reckless are they all -- the very picture of the Swindlers so aptly described in "Life Code" by Dr. Phil. They are wrong, but apparently, "Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness" has mysteriously disappeared from their list of Ten Commandments (apparently the Second Commandment with Promise is "Follow the Leader".

These people are disgusting and repugnant, with a heavy dose of narcissistic sociopathic arrogance, declaring that they know the truth when they can't even get their history and science right.

They aren't even as good as Scientology.

They wallow in self-righteous wickedness because they get away with it.

These evil false prophets are worthy of death, if we believe the Bible, but if we don't we have the Justice Department which has managed to pick off a few of them for Income Tax Evasion.

It's not justice for all the abuse they've plied, it doesn't make up for the fact they lie to you and take your money, but it's at least something.

I believe the quote in blue is actually Bill Lussenheide, not Malm who said that, just a heads up.

Anon: Thanks for catching that. I had had another Malm quote there and deleted it to add Bill's comment. Just changed it.

If I'm remembering correctly, it's James Malm who has had severe problems with his eyesight.

Maybe the Rotary Club gave him a pair of glasses that didn't help, so now he's mad at them.

Hypothetically speaking, if one found oneself in a fallen world, would it really be the best way to preserve one's sanity, and hopefully emerge victorious to focus on all of the bad aspects?

These people doom themselves bigtime. Their lives must be so depressing. I can't even imagine waking up every morning, pondering all of the bad, and wondering if today would be the day I succumbed and lost my salvation. They should consider Peter and what Jesus taught him about the wind!

No mention of redemption anywhere.

You'd think that some part of Jesus' message would have gotten through, but no, it's all about Olde Testament Christianity (which simply does not and never did exist).

So if someone wants redemption through Jesus, where would he have to go to get any knowledge about that?
