Is James Malm Ready To Advocate That All Men To Be Ordained In His Cult Have Their Entire Bodies Shaved Before Ordination?

James Malm, ever the legalist and the greatest Chief Pharisee of Armstrongism to ever exist, is currently doing a summary of the book of Numbers.

Malm has a deep issue with the ordination of sinful men in the various COG's  He claims they are still sinners and are not worthy to hold the office.

So........there is a way to make sure these men are worthy.  Shave their entire body of all hair, then they can be consecrated.

The consecration of the Levites
Numbers 8:5 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 8:6 Take the Levites from among the children of Israel, and cleanse them.
They are to shave off all the hair in their bodies and then to wash themselves and their clothes, so as to be completely clean.
 8:7 And thus shalt thou do unto them, to cleanse them: Sprinkle water of purifying upon them, and let them shave all their flesh, and let them wash their clothes, and so make themselves clean.
 8:8 Then let them take a young bullock with his meat offering, even fine flour mingled with oil, and another young bullock shalt thou take for a sin offering.
Then the people shall  lay hands on and ordain the Levites to the service of God.  We are to ordain ONLY those who God has clearly chosen as revealed by their fruits of faithful diligence in the righteousness of the whole word of God.  The ordaining of people for graduating from a college or for their loyalties to men as is done in the COG is a false ordination and is not respected by God.

Okay. Fine. Go with that for a second. What about the part about them needing to be Levites? We have to be scrupulous about listening to and following EVERY.SINGLE.WORD so we must listen and follow ONLY the shaving part! Ignore the part about them having to be Levites! That's right. Then you'll be listening to and following EVERY.SINGLE.WORD! There's no irony here. Nothing to see. Go on about your business. There's nothing ironic to be seen here folks. Move along.

What??? Is this supposed to be like getting rid of leavening or something? Next thing you know, he'll be advocating elliminating (Yes! Pun intended!) all those sinful flushing toilets, and returning to the Israelites' customs regarding bodily wastes!

These people are playing with fire. The command is for the Levites in God's service. These are no Levites and are definitely Gentiles. For all their efforts, they could receive curses and God's wrath for "touching" holy things. This is a form of blasphemy and they should fear God's word.

Why doesn't he tell them to have laser hair therapy?! That'll get rid of that darned pesky body hair once & for all! No need to shave ever again! :-)

Olde Testament Christianity strikes again.

Let's not forget the Scriptures about having those who are unblemished for the priesthood, so those shaved bodies had better be in body builder shape.

Gee, it's certainly becoming harder and harder by the day to become a Christian and we all thought it only required repentance from dead works, faith toward God, baptism and the receipt of the Holy Spirit -- not some Pharisaical adherence to Old Testament Physical Rituals of works. After receiving the Holy Spirit, be sure to save your receipt because you're going to need it.

It's no wonder there will be no more than 144,000 there.

Who wants to take bets that Jaimie Malm will be one of them?

Can anyone say cult?

I have a hard time believing the foreign troops who entered the "Holy of Holies" at the fall of Judea (both times) were all shaven, yet nobody died on the spot. Not to mention King Manasseh's men, or whoever managed to set up the Asherah pole in there during his time. But hey. Don't ask pesky questions around a good story-based threat...
