Jumping Through Norbert Link's Many Hoops To His Hidden God...If You Even Can

Raymond McNair had no idea the silliness he would spawn by stabbing Rod Meredith in the back and kicking him out of the Global Church of God.  Reading Norbert Link's nonsense makes it clear as to why Raymond and Eve McNair got on their knees in front of Rod Meredith and begged "with trembling lips" to be forgiven and admitted back into the truth.

Here is some of the stuff that Link covers in his latest booklet: "Hidden Secrets in the Bible"

Synonymous Parallelism
Identical Synonymous Parallelism
Similar Synonymous Parallelism
Introverted Parallelism
Antithetic Parallelism
Combination of Introverted and Antithetic Parallelism
Synthetic Parallelism
Climactic Parallelism
Emblematic Parallelism
Emblematic Parallelism WITH a link
Emblematic Parallelism WITHOUT a link
Palilogical Parallelism
Whew!  All of that is in the very first chapter!  As if ANY COG member gives a rats ass about such things.  Only cult leaders attempting to establish their "intellectual superiority" over the dumb members are the ones really concerned.  Students in a REAL seminary might find it interesting too, but not so with most Christians.

Chapter 2 is all about numerology.  Numerology has always been big in Armstrongism, from ministers to lay members.  People were always seeking to find hidden meaning in dates and numbers.  Just look at Geoff Neilson and Neville Stevens, two of the greatest Armstrongite proponents of numerology and gematria today.

Chapter 3 is all about the hidden meaning in the Psalms.  Its all about finding hidden prophecy in the book of Psalms and its meaning for the church today.

As usual with Armstrongism, the booklet focuses only on Hebrew Scriptures.  They never can seem to find any meaning, obvious or hidden, with Jesus or what he accomplished.  Instead they focus on Assyro-Babylonian divination to find meaning to their endless search of prophecy.

But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 2 Corinthians 11:3
