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.
