What would the Church of God be without all of its stark raving mad false prophets? The last 70 some years of Armstrongism would have been boring as hell if it had not been for these mentally deranged lunatics!
Today, God's most highly favored prophet in this dispensation is back online incensed that Americans are enjoying football on Thanksgiving Day. Not only is the false prophet bitter about football but he has to find anything negative about the day - which is typical of Amstrongism in its ability to duck any enjoyment in life out of EVERYTHING!
Today is national holiday in the USA called Thanksgiving. And despite certain claims, its specific origins are not pagan. But, of course, no Christian needs to celebrate national holidays like it. And the Bible does condemn gluttony."
He then has to smack down President Obama for not saying thank-you to God today and for watching football. Regardless of ones opinion about Obama, Thiel's silliness reaches a new depth of depravity:
"One thing that I have noticed on the day called Thanksgiving by those in the USA, is when I have been at many places than the home I lived in, American football has been playing on television.
For many, other than food and family, football is a major focus of the Thanksgiving holiday."
Then he gets into his usual tripe that Paul and John the Baptist would not like football:Notice the following:
Whether or not the US president will publicly and officially thank God later today remains an open question. But the fact that Barack Obama did not do that in many past thanksgiving addresses, but instead advocates football is disturbing. Now the fact is that I have never considered that Barack Obama was a real Christian, but what about real Christians today?Nov 22, 2012For the fourth straight year, the Thanksgiving resolution from President Barack Obama fails to actually thank God — which is the fundamental reason why Thanksgiving is observed…
But, to President Obama, Thanksgiving is about food and football, according to his official remarks as distributed by the White House.
“For us, like so many of you, this is a day full of family and friends; food and football. It’s a day to fight the overwhelming urge to take a nap – at least until after dinner,” Obama said. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/11/22/4th-straight-year-obama-thanksgiving-resolution-doesnt-thank-god/
While I have even heard some people thank God for football, it is not a sport that I believe that the God of love would condone.
The person that Jesus stated was greater than all others born of women (Matthew 11:11), John the Baptist taught:
14 Do violence to no man (Luke 3:14, KJV)The Apostle Paul taught:
Love does no harm to a neighbor (Romans 13:9).What do sports like American football and boxing do? Even if played according to all of its rules, American tackle football is evil because it actually physically harms many its participants
Is it any wonder Armstrongism is rapidly disintegrating when these asshats run off at the mouth? All I can say is THANK-YOU!! T/e more dumb things you say the weirder Armstrongism looks to he world.
