When I started this blog it was never a project that I took seriously. How could I really do so when the various COG ministers and leaders constantly run off at the mouth and say some of the most idiotic things imaginable. When Dennis and I speak on the phone we spend a lot of our time laughing at the craziness of the church. So many of these men take themselves so seriously that that they come off looking like bumbling fools when they react to people criticizing them. Today was no exception to the foolishness that permeates the church Internet guru's.
Michael Germano threw down the gauntlet at James Malm the other day and the sniveling Pharisee and his Wiccan side kick did not take too kindly to it. The spittle was flying so fast out of the Chief Pharisee and Michael Germano that my computer screen was wet!
Watching this smack down is like watching a heavy weight fighter slap a whiny little light weight crybaby on the cheek. As much was we have derided Michael Germano's decision to leave grace and freedom behind for legalism with Rod Meredith, Germano is no light weight with the education he has. He far surpasses any of the legalistic lightweight bullshit that Pharisee James Malm vomits out daily. Even with that knowledge, it boggles my mind how Germano went about doing what he did.
Here we have a high ranking Living Church of God minister and the President of Living University, the official educational arm of the Living Church of God, lashing out at Malm and Constance. Even if all of his accusations are true, which they are, why did he do it in the way he did? His words will be forever immortalized on the Internet. Are these the actions that a "converted" long time COG member would do? Living Church of God members as well as followers of James Malm are equally appalled at Germano's reactions.
The Chief Pharisee is incensed that Germano has called him out on his "right" calendar nonsense.
Germano sent this to Malm's sidekick Constance:
Ouch! I feel the butthurt all the way here in Pasadena!
And thus the Chief Pharisee responds:
Notice that he claims that I slander him, but he does not mention what has been said which he claims is a slander; in fact I quoted his own words directly from his own papers. Where is the slander or defamation in that?
Further he has never contacted me in obedience to Jesus Christ as per Matthew 18 to correct me or to rebut. For the record Michael has not contacted me in any way and if I have said anything in error about him it is his own fault for not obeying Jesus Christ and correcting me.
Finally Michael is absolutely and very easily provably wrong on the Calendar.
Today’s Jewish Calendar was NOT in use during the first century. It was first developed over several hundred years and finally formalized, finalized and accepted in 1178 A.D. Ask ANY Rabbi or better still ask Hebrew University’s Calendar expert Dr Roy Hoffman when today’s Jewish calendar was established.Malm's Pharisaical nonsense on the calendar is worthless. Just because he and so many other in the church wrote a paper on the calendar does not make him an authority on it any more than Bob Thiel is an authority on the Mayans, the Catholic church, church history, grace, justification or prophecy.
Every time this FOOL spits out that COG members have no zeal, that they lack faith, it is actually a personal attack by Malm against all COG members. All of the Ekklessia could car less about Malm's calendar issues, and rightfully so. No new covenant Christian needs to concern themselves about the new moons and calendar issues.
Next Germano publishes this on his own Facebook page:
For all of my Facebook Friends that have been bombarded on the News Feed with the phony gospel of the unbiblical calendar guru James Malm, I would like to share a photo of his lovely headquarters. The drive needs a little work. You can call him on the phone and tell him what you think of his heresy at 1-604-941-5807. His basement headquarters for his false, deceptive unauthorized ministry is 1735 Morgan Ave, Port Coquitlam BC V3C1J6, Port Coquitlam. This humble clapboard shack needs a little maintenance, don’t you think? Maybe James should spend less time writing religious propaganda and defaming people on his computer and go out and work at something physical. It would be more profitable. Poor old fool!
This shows the quality of Michael’s research. I moved from that rental house into a small rented apartment almost seven years ago, I do not even live in the same town! The Phone number is wrong as well. May we see a pic of the Germano home please, I expect that it is no humble dwelling.
I never cease to be amazed at how so many of these fools take themselves so seriously. Put down your damn concordances and Bibles and get outside and enjoy the creation around you and live life instead of parking you butt in front of a computer and commenting on every single scripture and writing your own interpretation of it. That is all the calendar issue is to the foolish Pharisee and his acolytes, his own distorted interpretation that God no more cares about than he does Gerald Flurry buying his own jet. These fools lie to their followers leading them off into useless and unnecessary legalistic tangents that serve no purpose other than puffing up leaders vanity.
Was Germano right in doing what he did? I do not disagree with anything Germano says, but really is this the kind of leader a church needs as its public face, even if he is right about the lies of James Malm?
The Church of God comedy stream is never ending!
