The Chief Pharisee and bastardizer of the law, James Malm, has now gotten his pharisaical tzitzit's all in a knot today over birthdays. One of his few acolytes was distressed that some COG's give birthday cards and made cakes for those celebrating birthdays. Oh the horrors!!!!!!! Pagan heathen birthday cards from Hallmark are like bowing down to the altar of Artemis. All hail Artemis, Queen of the moon!
Pharisaical stupidity trumps yet again.
The acolyte writes:
Various COG Groups have different opinions on the traditional birthday celebration. Some groups believe it is sin to celebrate birthdays. Others will set up tables at church services on the Sabbath with birthday cakes, candles, birthday wishes, cards and small gifts. This not only mimics past religious rituals to false gods but also appears to LITERALLY set up an altar to, Artemis, the goddess of Moon (also goddess of birth) within the Temple (spiritual) of God on the Sabbath. Whether the participants know it or not, it still appears to be the literal situation. Am I just being a “right-wing religious fanatic”? My mind is made up, and if it weren’t, I would err on the side of caution. I would still like to hear other perspectives on this.Then God's most important mouthpiece in this later day dispensation has to weigh in with his knotty tzitzit's. Apparently because birthday cakes a round they are a sign of the goddess Astarte and her husband Baal...two guesses as to what was round on Baal.
Next the Chief Pharisee has to wrap his tzitzits around birthday candles. The second you blow the candle out you are sending sweet fragrance to the gods. And don't even think about gathering a group of friends around to celebrate with you because when you do you will be scaring away the birthday demons who are out to "lick" you.
On the other hand these modern birthday celebrations are totally pagan and it is not acceptable for any converted person to remember the day of birth by these rank paganisms. from round sun and moon cakes for the Queen of Heaven Astarte and her husband baal, to the burning candles who’s smoke carries one’s wishes up to the gods, to the gatherings of friends to scare of the demons by a crowd, and bring good lick for the coming year; the common birthday celebrations are pure witchcraft and Satanism. Even a casual study of the subject will bring the answers.
Then to back up his illogical pharisaical bullshit, the Chief Pharisees writes this, though I would not be quoting too much about witchcraft considering the track record of one of his acolytes.
BIRTHDAY CAKE CUSTOM – TEACHING CHILDREN WITCHCRAFT?
Worldwide, baking cakes for the “Queen of Heaven” (Asherah) was entangled in birth day celebrations (Jer./YermeYahu 7:18). This provokes YaHUaH’s anger. By blowing-out candles and making a “secret wish”, the celebrant performs IDOLATRY, because the “wish” is to their GENIE or JINN, a spell performed by Wiccans (you know, witchcraft). The candles are part of the fire ritual; Pagans believed the solar presence to be fire. The rising smoke of the extinguished candles carried the “secret wish” into the skies. How do you think YaHUaH likes it when we teach our children to do these things, or propagate the custom of them? How about if we “think” of the “wish” being a prayer to YaHUaH? This is not going to be acceptable to YaHUaH, no matter how we wrap it in our minds. Worshipping YaHUaH in a Pagan format is the main problem we have today. We desperately need eye-salve to see better. Open your eyes, and even the little party hat can be better understood.
All these things are, in fact, witchcraft. Knowledge is increasing, so Satan’s “tricks” (wiles) are no longer secrets.
Next up is eeeeeeeevil cone hats!
Cone hats: CONE OF POWER — The Llewellyn Encyclopedia tells us:
“In the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn this was described as a ‘vortex of energy’ and was built up via circumambulation.”
The cone of power is the name given to the union of witches’ forces gathered around the circle, aimed at a common goal. In parts of ancient Syria, the cone was a symbol of Astarte (Asherah).Now we finally know how the hypocritical Chief Pharisee receives his mind boggling information....
