The COG Cry For The Kingdom To Come So The Wicked Can Be Punished

double click to enlarge

This seems to be the cry of Dave Pack, Gerald Flurry, Rod Meredith, James Malm and Bob Thiel.  They want that kingdom to come so that the evil people around them can be punished.  Some of them almost take delightful glee in  that anticipation.  They do want to see concentration camps, horrible wars, famines, pestilence and a host of other evils they predict for the world.  If it does not happen then they are proven to be liars and thaw would be a major embarrassment considering they want to be god's so whey can dish out that punishment.

Once individuals have been processed by Armstrongism, it is doubtful that most will ever again become optimists. For some, it would even be an improvement to become just a little less worst case scenario orientated, but sadly, the gloom and doom are always lurking beneath the surface, just waiting to be expressed. People even choose their political parties based on which fear monger's gloom is more convincing, that of the liberals or that of the conservatives. The people who are salivating over the concentration camps usually have it in the back of their minds that they themselves will not "qualify" for the place of safety and will end up in the camps themselves. They remind me of poor Joe Btfsplk, the character in the old L'il Abner comic strip who had his own personal cloud of gloom hovering over his head.

Hey lnrd, it's called a typo.

But, if you're lucky, maybe wicked Gary will be punished soon by invading armies.

Many national , political, and religious movements use the "end of the world" as a very primal motivator to cause people to join and to commit.

Hitler had the ideas of the Jews destroying the world. Environmentalists have the idea of "global warming" ending the world. It even applies to many conspiracy ideas like contrails, the Bilderbergers, or even a disease like AIDS or Ebola.

Creating panic works.

Problem with having the "end of the world" being the precursor to your "eternal reward" is that subconsciously you begin viewing NEGATIVE events as rewards or "steps to" positive reinforcements of your future destiny as "king and ruler". Just like training a dog, whatever behaviors you reward, you will encourage.

Thus, the sycophants of Flurry, Thiel, Weinland, Pack et al., both dispensing and being rewarded by "negative news" propaganda.

To be totally fair, I'm not sure this is what most splinter leaders really want. They may say they want this, but it's just the politically de rigueur thing to say to appeal to the COG constituency. But if this ever did happen, the jig would be up, along with the lifestyle their current racket lets them enjoy.

James Malm, on the other hand...

These gormless idiots sit on the sidelines and cheer for the end of the world in their ineffectual spectators-only doomsday cults.

Wasting the entirety of your life engaged in sanctimonious hand-wringing over the "end times", seeing no point in cleaning up your messes because you're so sure there won't be any generations after your own, how sad and selfish.

To be negative is easier than being positive.

Think of the bad old days of church attendance. There were always stories that had something to do with the end times that some asshat would bring up. And that with a twinkle in their eye. Really, those were the twisted days. Thank me its finally over!

It is said that: “...The COG cry for the kingdom to come so that the evil people around them can be punished, because they are so self-righteous they cannot see the sin and evil within themselves like the see it in their neighbors, their brothers and sisters...”

Huh? Sure, Paul, an apostle was self-aware of the sin dwelling within himself:

"Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me." Romans 7:17

Paul, unlike the COG cryers, was also aware of the evil present!

:21 "I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me."

The COG cryers appear to be oblivious to these verses, especially when they point their fingers at others. They cry the "bad news" in lieu of the real "Good News!" It is good that United will abandon their use of the title "Good News," since the real focus was really elsewhere. Of course, they also teach a Mickey Mouse Millennium where they expect Jesus Christ will rule earth for 1,000 years while using the COG cryers as kings/priests to beat the people with a rod into submission, but ignore the facts that after that 1,000 years expires Satan is loosed from the bottomless pit, deceives the entire world again...even takes over Jerusalem and messes that city up. Where was Christ? Yes, their view is the Mickey Mouse view, but we already have a MM kingdom down in Florida...and in California! Why another one?

Consider the COG crier Bob Thiel's, who thinks God is imposing His Law on all humanity, but God is not imposing His law on this world as Bob Thiel and James Malm and Rod Meredith (yes, and Doug Winnail, Jim Franks, Gerry Flurry, etc.) would have us believe. They believe one of Satan's lies (Hint: John 8:44; James 4:5).

God is not judging this world. Think about it. God did send His Son NOT to CONDEMN the world (John 3:17)! The COG cryers don't want us to read that verse either.

"To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation." 2 Corinthians 5:19

God will not impute trespasses on the world (so why do these COG Cryers do such a thing?), but will eventually reconcile it to Himself!

Why do the Bob Thiel's, the James Malm's, the Meredith's, the Franks', the Flurry's, the COG Cryers et al, strive to impose God's law on this world when God does NO SUCH THING?

Finally, if Bob Thiel and any of those other guys mentioned think they are part of God's Church, then it is them and their groups that need to watch out, because we are all familiar with the following verse:

"For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?" 1 Peter 4:17

Judgment begins with the COG Cryers........and their houses!

And with some second thoughts:

So, you COG Crying guys, thinking you are God's hirelings, better be applying your words of correction to yourselves (1 Peter 4:17) post haste! Why? It's because as far as this present evil world, MADE SUBJECT TO VANITY, is concerned we may consider the following where this is said of God the Father:

"For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:" John 5:22

And of Jesus Christ?

"Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man." John 8:15

So far, it appears that COG Cryer hirelings have been writing lots of books, articles, running their mouths about nonsense and prophecies while being ignorant of the true timing, and doing their favorite thing:

"But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. John 10:12

Yes, that is what hirelings (includes Bob Thiel, Meredith, Flurry, Franks, Winnail, Wineland, etc.) do. Flee (Most left their ministerial credentials behind when they fled Pasadena's WCG) and scatter sheep! They can't stand up to the wolf!

And when they tell us of all of the love they have for the brethren, it is good to remember these words of Jesus Christ...the True/Good Shepherd...something the COG Cryers are NOT!

:13 "The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep."

And if you disagree with Jesus Christ, well, then what else can one say: just call Jesus Christ a liar!

I believe Jesus Christ on this one...the hireling “careth not for the sheep!”

So many people on this blog have spoken of the abuse of the COG Cryers, who are not real representatives of God the Father. They don't realize they so often, perhaps unwittingly, are the pawns of another father (John 8:44), and time is really telling on them COG Cryers...........
