Global Church of God: Stoning Has Not Been Done Away With



Legalism does dangerous things to the theological bankrupt men of Armstrongism.  Norbert Link of the Global Church of God/Church of the Eternal God says:

Christians today are not to carry out the physical penalties of the Old Testament (such as stoning) against others.

On the other hand, no New Testament passage indicates that those Old Testament laws, as set forth in Leviticus 19:19 or Deuteronomy 22:11, are no longer binding.

If Norbert thinks stoning has not been done away with then almost every single COG leader and evangelist (and their children) would be dead right now because of their peccadillo's.

Watch out for their place of "safety". If you believe in the Germans as Assyrians, you are probably better off taking your chances with them!

Watch a modern stoning on Youtube if you dare and I don't advise it. It will make you realize what psychopathic god the priests of YHVH came up with. Maybe it was the Priests and lawgivers that were the psychos.

PECCADILLO...I like that word. Now what were you saying?

Well, good!

Stone those false prophets of the Cult of Herbert Armstrong Mafia to death.

Start with Roderick Meredith.

The Place of Safety will be a great place to get all those false prophets together to stone them (recognizing the fact that Scripture is a bit hazy about the particular form of execution -- burning at the stake may be just fine as well).

Doing something physical will be very satisfying, since they spent decades boring us to death.

Except for a whole bunch of 'em in the epistles to the Galatians, the Romans and the Corinthians. Oh, I forgot...HWA explained those all away and twisted them to mean the law was even more binding.

I've heard crazy 'gun-nuts' say that shooting people is the equivalent of biblical stoning.
These crazies say they will hold up in their fortified houses with stores of food and ammunition, and when hungry people come looking for food, it will be like Family Affair meets Waco, where whole families trained in marksmanship plan to shoot the hungry hoards of people they believe will descend on them!

I like it too. Like many words, it has more than one definition.

1. The result of gene-splicing experiments involving javelinas and armadillos.

2. A small genital prosthesis.

3. A slender cigar; so called for its resemblance to a genital prosthesis
