Here's a little blurb from Yahoo showing how myths and legends influence the minds of COG members. In Armstrongism demons seem to be found in everything. Members seem to live in constant fear of Satan and his demons. Since
A writer on Yahoo shared this story about GTA in New Zealand and the a gift he received from the Maori. Of course this member believes that the club contains a demon in the club which helped lead to the downfall of GTA. It apparently caused him to fornicate with numerous women, so much so, that HWA had to kick him out of the church.
The article start out being appalled by NZ's new gay marriage stance then quickly leads to this:
Along this line of anti Christianity. NZ has a compulsory State anti Christianity religion for all Government departments, including schools. One Church of God person has told me how she was denied a Teachers licence, because she would not teach The NZ Government religion.This is to do with the peace treaty the British Government signed with the Maori Chiefs back in the 1800’s. The Maori religion has spirit gods and spirit practices. Very offensive and contrary to True Christianity.These spirits are very powerful, they manifest themselves...... Once in an unwise move, the WCG NZ, gave GTA (on a visit to NZ) a Greenstone club with a Maori spirit in it . (given to the Chiefs son to kill the Father) The WCG Maori people were horrified when this club was given to GTA. (they pointed out what happened straight after this was given.)These are very powerful spirits. If anyone has Maori carvings or objects, I recommend they be destroyed, to remove any spirit. (demons or the Devil himself) Also get a True Minister to expel any Demons from your dwelling.I am not joking around.
