Yesterday, the Apostle Malm blogged:
"Today we can be zealous for our God by keeping all of his
commandments THAT ARE APPLICABLE TO US and by rejecting the wicked from our
assemblies … Today we are to reject the wicked from our assemblies for God to
deal with." (Emphasis mine.)
Yes, even the Apostle agrees, some of god's commandments are applicable
to us, and, some of them aren't! Let's have a brief look at several examples.
1) Ex 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
These 8 words have more impact upon how a "true,"
"zealous," "christian" lives his life than any other. There
is no length too extreme to make sure one never tramples holy time with his
sandals on. The annual holy days in Leviticus 23 amplify this commandment by
adding 7 extra sabbaths. Breaking a sabbath in even the tiniest of ways is sure
to get your ass deep-fried in the Lake of Fire. Status: Applicable.
2) Isa 66:23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to
another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship
before me, saith the LORD.
Yep, new moons are basically 12 more sabbaths per year. It's not
strictly commanded not to work on new moons, but if you're not too busy doing
bible study to get nothing else done, it’s possible that could be a sin.
"Zealous" "christians" always err on the side of caution in
these matters. Status: Applicable.
3) Numbers 10:10 Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn
days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets
over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings;
that they may be to you for a memorial before your God: I am the LORD your God.
Yep, on every sabbath, you are supposed to toot your own horn. If you
don't do that, you are NOT keeping the sabbath, and your ass WILL be fried, no
question. Status: Applicable.
Now, here's a few commandments that are not applicable:
1) Matthew 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for
ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cumin, and have omitted the weightier
matters of the law: judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done,
and not to leave the other undone.
Haha, no need to look out for those "weightier matters,"
because everyone knows that keeping the sabbath is the weightiest matter of the
law. Tithing, sure, but mercy? Puh-leez! Good one, Jesus! Status: Not
2) Matthew 25:34-46 Then shall the King say unto them on his right
hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from
the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was
thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and
ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto
If you're hungry and naked, this is probably because god is not
blessing you, and what's the number one reason why god might withhold his
blessings from you? That's right, sabbathbreaking. [Why is the Apostle living
below the poverty line?] In the words of the Apostle, we are to
"reject" these "wicked" people. Like the Hell’s Angels say,
“Kill 'em all and let god sort 'em out.” Better not trample the sabbath with
your sandals on, but if you want to trample your fellow man with cleat boots,
no problem. Status: Not Applicable. Next!
3) James 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is
this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, [and to keep
himself unspotted from the world.]
This is a tricky one. The first half of the verse is not applicable,
the second half is! And how do we keep ourselves from being spotted by the
world? Stay inside writing your blog (about how everyone who doesn't live
exactly like you do will receive eternal damnation) where no one in the world
can “spot” you. The "zealous" "christian" treats every day
he can like the sabbath, just to be safe. The sabbath: a day of rest,
condemnation, and gnashing of teeth. Ahh. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy
inside. Visiting people in affliction? Eh, not so much. Status: Not Applicable.
Bonus) Matt 22:36-39 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
Jesus said unto him, [Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and
with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great
commandment.] And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as
Another tricky one. Some parts are applicable and some parts aren’t.
Can you tell which is which? The first great commandment is all good, but love
your neighbor? Never heard that one before! Besides, everyone knows the second great
commandment is Ex 20:8! Haha. Another good one by Jesus! Status: Not
UH OH! Today the Apostle went on a tear about NOT CHERRY-PICKING from
scripture! Something the Apostle would NEVER be guilty of! Look at what he
"To reject any part of God’s word as NOT APPLICABLE TO US, is to
reject the Word of God; which is to reject Jesus Christ! And to reject Christ
and God’s Word is the spirit of Antichrist!" (Emphasis mine.)
Once again, out of his own mouth the Apostle contradicts and condemns
