Grumpy COG False Prophet Upset Over Philadelphia PA's Mummers Parade



Bobby Downer is back with his prophetic bloomers all in a twist today over the New Years Day Mummers Parade in Philadelphia PA. Bitter Bob Thiel says all of the men. women and children who dress in costumes to have fun on a cold winter day are all worshippers of Saturnalia.  I'm pretty sure Almost-ordained Bob imagines them sacrificing those children on fires afterwards.
Of course, those who have looked into the whole ‘Christmas/New Years’ season realize that Jesus was not born on December 25th and that the dates and many observances were modifications from pagan practices. Mummers parades seem to be an offshoot of that. 
Those who have looked into the Bible realize that neither Saturnalia, Mummers, Mithras, or Christmas observances are biblical. Because of their connections to paganism and distortions to God’s plan as revealed in His Holy Days, they should not be kept by Christians. 
Early Christians did not even celebrate birthdays of any type, and certainly none to honor sun-gods or other pagan deities.
Almost-arrested Bob also had this to say about Christmas the Church of God Feast of Tabernacles:
In ancient Babylon, the feast of the Son of Isis (Goddess of Nature) was celebrated on December 25. Raucous partying, gluttonous eating and drinking, and gift-giving were traditions of this feast.
I have seen more raucous partying, gluttonous eating and drinking and gift giving at the Feast of Tabernacles than I have ever seen people in my neighborhood or at church do.  Having worked ministerial dining rooms in Pasadena and other Feast sites I can testify that the COG ministry LOVES its alcohol! 

Elijah Amos Thiel needs to get this own house in order before he starts condemning others for perceived imperfections.  Lying that God has set him apart from all other COG's to start a new church that has the only inside track to salvation or Petra, is far worse than some playful fun on New Years Day.

When will Boob stop wearing his pagan wedding ring? Or stop wearing his phallus neckties?

Some years ago Bob made a remark questioning whether Jesus should have observed Hanukkah (John 10:22, Feast of Dedication). His current observation is that Hanukkah is too much like Christmas.

Bob Thiel probably isn't even aware that the bar has been raised for an ACOG leader's performance. He would increase the probability for his success exponentially if he would open-mindedly look at the example which has been set in Jamaica.

Bobby should start by setting an example. STEP ONE would be to quit acting like a CLOWN himself.

apparently you (falsely) assume that everyone at church is in the church...

Yep, there's a reason FOT was jokingly referred to back in the day as the 'Feast of Booze.' At some private get-togethers you couldn't even see the counter top for the amount of alcohol bottles on it.
And the UK ministerial 'luncheon' was legendary--many years it was even held at the pub!

I wonder if any such "teachers" ever ask themselves why anyone should listen to them. Against the backdrop of eternity, they, like you and me, are farts that soon dissipate. How can any spiritual teacher think that he can teach any of us about anything? It has to come to us as a realization from within. Socrates knew that. And that realization will form when the student is ready for it. And the student will become ready for it when he sees positive fruit in the life of the teacher. In short, the blind should stop trying to lead the sighted.

It is funny now to think of the alcoholic ministurds I knew shouting from the podium "Let us not make this the Feast of BOOZE!"

Heal thyself.

The biggest alcoholics that we had in Pasadena are now leaders in UCG and LCG,and reports that I have heard, they are still alcoholics.
