Dennis On: "And You KNOW This?"

And You KNOW This?

Dennis Diehl - EzineArticles Expert AuthorI have to confess, I did a lot of this myself in my youthful know it all because I read in the Bible past.  If it is one thing a COG minister or member can do, it is to declare the absolute truth of matters that few humans could ever know.  Sometimes I am forced because the person telling me how it all is to ask them if they understand quantum physics?   Of course, all say "well no, not really."   But for the last ten minutes you have told me that you understand completely the plan, intentions, mind, characteristics and demands of the Deity?  Really?  And you KNOW this?  At least there are many physicists who do fairly well understand Quantum Physics, but that is because they have spent a lifetime doing the hard work required to think and run the data, do the math or launch the probe to find out such things.  Spend an evening watching ...

....and you will be exposed to more understanding, hard won, than any human before you learned in 100,000 years.   While creationists and mere Bible readers sit home and read books, real scientists are out in the real world doing the hard work to see how things really work.  They sit home thinking up ridiculous explanations for the Grand Canyon so that it ends up part of the mythic Noah story while real paleontologists and geologists are actually in the Grand Canyon doing the hard work of where did it come from and how long did it take.

I do not know James Malm.  I suspect he is very sincere.  He's an excellent Bible reader, as we were all taught to be.  This, however, is not the same as understanding it's origins, background and intent of a book that is just a book and in reality is not and was not written or channeled to men from any Deity. 

How common it is for COG zealots to tell us all:

"God wants us..."
"God is telling us..."
"We know we know the truth..."
"We know the end is near.."
"God is purifying his church..."
"We know we are God's true church..."
"I am that Apostle.."
"We have the truth.."
"Time is short...(again and still)

and so on.   

To which we simply have to say,  "And you KNOW this?" 

I will spare us all, but I always had issues with Gerald Waterhouse and his flip the switch in his head, autopilot sermons given to keep us all tuned into the "Work" and "Mr. Urmstrong."    I sat there , as did we all, listening to speculation promoted as truth and opinions portrayed as truth.  I never bought into it from the start.  I did not grow up in WCG and Gerald Waterhouse's sermons always, from the start, made me say in my head,  "And you know this?"   Of course he didn't.  From going before Kings to fleeing to the place of safety, the voice in my head always said,  "And you know this?"   The last time I ever had him visit my church area I finally told him  "your sermons cause more problems than they solve and I am directing the questions they raise to you and not bothering with them anymore."   All he said was , "Really?"   Yes....really.

I  suppose I could quote ten thousand examples of COG guru types telling the brethren how it all is.   Dave Pack is good at it and in his wildest dreams could not imagine he is simply wrong on how it all is.  Ron Weinland is the master of the same old sermon given every week where he tells the faithful how it all is, how God thinks, what God is doing and what their part in it all is."  One is simply left asking..."And you KNOW this."

Gerald Flurry, Bob Thiel, Rod Meredith, Dave Pack, Ron Weinland, James Malm and hundreds more just know how it all is, what God, Jesus and the Angels of heaven are thinking and doing...just ask them.   Sadly and of course, (my favorite Bob Thiel quote),  they really don't. 

Let's face it.  Jesus, the Apostle Paul and all the leaders of the Jerusalem Church were wrong about the times they lived in and how it all was going to play out.  If you can't admit that, then I can't help you.  Paul, Peter, James and John were just as much false prophets of their immediate times as any preacher today who thinks they have special insight into the mind of any God.   At least Paul admitted he was wrong as he left the planet and left others to fend for themselves.

How do we know that those like Pack and Flurry don't really believe or mean that we or they are in the end times?  Just look at what they do.  You don't build a campus to fuel your "Ediface Complex" when you think any Jesus is about to return.  Subconsciously, they bullshit themselves and those that follow them.  Sadly and of course, (sorry:)  , they quote "blessed is he who is found so doing," to cover their tracks.  Sadly and of course, (sorry again), that is not the context of the quote.

I have a number of friends who into metaphysics just as much as any Church of God minister is into the Bible and end time misunderstood prophecy.  They say things like,  "Michael the Archangel is now .....",   or " Mars is in Leo so expect a war of lions...this Wednesday.." and so on.  I think to them too,  "And You KNOW this?"  It's all the same silliness. 

I personally do not believe humans can know the future and prophecy is just the human tendency to speculate and see patterns.  Whether we like it or not, much Old Testament "prophecy" was false and never , never, never world out as advertised.  We embrace prophecy because it helps us cope with the present.  We all need to know it will be ok and work out.  That is why you hear,  "I have read the end of the story, and we win."  And you KNOW this?

 The future has not yet arrived and when it does will simply be another present moment.  If prophecy is true, then we have no free choice and are living in a Godplay video game.  I am tempted to say that the Euro and the United States of Europe is dead in the water, but the idea of it "part of iron and part of clay" sticks in my mind from the past.   Being God-Haunted and superstitious is a legacy of the WCG and all who read the book of Revelation like one would a blog or newspaper.

Even on this site we hear comments that "Satan wants you all to...."  or "The true Christian will....."    It's all the same thing.   Making statements that no one could prove in a way that sounds as if the conclusion is true and right.   All it does is hold up the self righteous and piss off the skeptic.  But having the ability to say,  "And you KNOW this?"  or even,  "and I KNOW this?"  is a skill that at least shows we have a bit of humility in all this knowing. 

If I had to look into the future, this is what I see.   First of all, I will personally grow old and die, if I am lucky.  I don't know how or when I will die, but I seriously doubt I will be changed in a moment , a twinkling of an eye , into a god or born such and such.  I would like to be, but I am being practical here and going on past human experiences with living and dying.  I don't wish to die in some nasty manner or alone, but it will be what it will be.  Next, I expect Dave Pack, Rod Meredith, Gerald Flurry, James Malm, Bob Thiel and everyone else will die in time too.  Some sooner, some later.  Life is a conveyor belt.  Some never get on it.  Some get on and fall off fairly quickly. Some ride it half way or three quarters.  Some even get to ride it out to the end.  (My parents are 97)  But eventually and somewhere along the line, we fall off the conveyor.  Our only concern is if someone sweeps us up off the floor and gives us another shot.

I predict Ron Weinland is going to prison.

On this site comments are always reactions to the comments of others.  We all know how to say, "and You KNOW that?" but we say it in different ways.  Some by discussion and some by rancor. 

There is a wonderful Buddhist saying that says,  "He who says, does not know and he who knows, does not say."   That works for me.  Those who crow the loudes about who and what God is and Jesus is doing probably don't really know and don't know that they don't know.  Those who let things be as they are , are probably better off emotionally and spiritually not letting those who know pressure, intimidate or bullshit them into living their own lives through the filters and eyes of another. 

Around Greenville, if you go to Bob Jones University, you are known as a "Joneser", not unlike those who like to use the term "Armstrongist."  I have asked students who they are and they always tell me, "I go to Bob Jones."   Really sad actually.  I asked who you are, not where you went to school, but they form themselves into the image and views of the Jones boys.  Authenticity tends to elude Jonesers. 

So, what's the point?  I suppose just developing the mental skill to ask, "and you KNOW this," when WCGers, Armstrongists, the Packatolla, Flurryites, Weiners , Malmists, and COGgers tell us how it all is.    It disarms the arrogance and frees you personally from wondering if you are missing something you just don't see or agree with.

WCG/GCI Minister In Philippines Killed in Plane Crash

Capt. Jessup Bahinting

MANILA, Philippines - The wife of Capt. Jessup Bahinting, the pilot of the ill-fated Piper Seneca, wondered why he was rushing to his flight to Naga, forgetting even to kiss her as he always did in the past.
Margaret Bahinting was very emotional and still in shock when she faced the media to describe her husband of 36 years.

On that fateful day on Saturday, she was at the Mactan Cebu International Airport hangar to send off her husband with the hope of seeing him in the next few days in Bacolod for a Church event. Bahinting is also a pastor. They have 3 children.

Bahinting, Interior and Local Government Secretary Jesse Robredo and co-pilot Nepalese co-pilot Kshitiz Chand remain missing Monday after their Piper Seneca plane crashed off the waters of Masbate on Saturday afternoon.    Robredo's pilot didn't use favorite plane

Captain’s wife dismayed husband not found on pilot seat

CEBU CITY—Margarita Bahinting, the wife of Captain Jessup Bahinting, chairman and executive officer of Aviatour Air, expressed dismay at the reports that her husband was found on the right side of the cockpit, saying this was erroneous.

She said that her husband was on the left side of the plane, on the seat of the main pilot. She said the media reports could be misconstrued that Bahinting had allowed the student pilot, Kshitiz Chand, 21, to handle the plane.

Chand’s body was found floating near the crash site Thursday morning.

The bodies of the two pilots of the light plane that crashed off Masbate with Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo were flown to Cebu on Thursday.

The body of Bahinting, 61, was accompanied by his daughter Sarah Lynn on board a Beechcraft RPC 9980 plane, which landed at the Mactan Cebu International Airport at 8:01 a.m.

At 3:03 p.m., Cessna 182 RPC 2214 arrived with the body of Bahinting’s Nepali co-pilot, Chand.

Bahinting and Chand piloted the Piper Seneca plane that was supposed to bring Robredo from Cebu to Naga City in Camarines Sur. But the plane reportedly experienced engine trouble and was trying to make an emergency landing at the Masbate Airport when it crashed into the sea.

Bahinting’s body was retrieved from the right side of the cockpit on Wednesday, according to media reports. Sarah identified her father through his Fossil watch and ring.

Ace pilot comes home

Capt.Jessup Bahinting finally arrived home in Cebu yesterday.

His widow Margarita burst into tears when the body bag containing the pilot’s body emerged from the Beechcraft Baron 55, accompanied by their youngest daughter, Sarah Lynn.

The plane owned by Cheyn Air touched down 8 a.m. in the Aviatour Air hangar in Mactan.

About 200 flight students, pilots and instructors gathered at the hangar to join the sad welcome party.

Some wept openly, including the couple’s fellow members of the Christian congregation Grace Communion International.
The retrieval of Chand completed the five-day search and rescue operation which was spearheaded by the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine Coast Guard. Volunteer technical divers of different nationalities and local fishermen played important roles in the operations.

Capt. Bahinting, founder and CEO of Aviatour was a church pastor who was active in charity and mercy missions.

He flew patients from hinterland communities in the Visayas and Mindanao and volunteered for disaster relief work in the Ginsaugon, Leyte landslide in 2007, the Sendong floods in Cagayan de Oro and Iligan cities in December last year and the earthquake that badly hit Negros Oriental in January this year.


HWA Films Preserved Forever In Library of Congress

Gerald Flurry, affectionately known as Six Pack McFlurry, is reporting on his site that Herbert Armstrong's television broadcasts from 1972 - 1986 are now preserved in the The Library of Congress Film and Television Archives. U.S. Congress Preserving Herbert W. Armstrong Video Archive

The United States Library of Congress Film and Television Archives contain all episodes of the World Tomorrow program featuring unofficial ambassador for world peace Herbert W. Armstrong, dating from 1972 through 1986.

You need to give Bob Dole the thanks for this miraculous event.

On April 4, 1977, President Jimmy Carter hosted a state dinner in honor of the Egyptian president at the White House. Sen. Bob Dole was in attendance, along with Mr. Armstrong’s youngest son, who assisted him during that time in presenting the World Tomorrow broadcast.

The dinner aided in opening doors for The World Tomorrow, featuring special interviews with Mr. Sadat and episodes highlighting challenges facing American farmers, coinciding with Mr. Dole’s service on the U.S. Senate Committee for Agriculture. 

I have to laugh that Six Pack and crew cannot mention Garner Ted's name.  Is it because GTA was a more dynamic and engaging speaker than Six Pack will ever be?

It was in 1978 during his tenure as Kansas senator that Mr. Dole made the request for the preservation of episodes of The World Tomorrow. The request was approved and ensured the cataloging by the U.S. Library of Congress of all programs dating from 1972 through to the death of its founder and presenter.  

Then as usual, Six Pack then launches into his usual tired and over worked tirade about the betrayal of Herb's legacy and how he and John Amos were picked on and fired.  Oh boo hoo!

With Mr. Armstrong’s death, in a great betrayal of trust, his successors sought to subsequently eliminate his written, spoken and otherwise documented teachings. A battle officially began on Dec. 7, 1989, with the firing of Trumpet founder Gerald Flurry and his assistant John Amos from the employ of the church established by Christ through Herbert Armstrong. Both these men were intent on preserving Herbert Armstrong’s legacy in resistance to those bent on destroying all records of Mr. Armstrong and his legacy.

Mr. Flurry and Mr. Amos’s contention revolved around the rejection of the man and message evidenced in The World Tomorrow reaching over 400 stations, the Plain Truth magazine with over 8 million subscribers, and an unofficial ambassadorial bond with global leaders, culminating in Mr. 

Then Six Pack starts boasting, ala Dave Pack Primary School of Self Promotion, on how his television program is recognized around the world as the successor to Herb's World Tomorrow broadcast.  Who recognizes that?  Certainly not the world because Six Pack's programs are not recognizable and are making no impact whatsoever.

By January 1993, with Gods Future World now renamed the Key of David television program, the first episode aired nationwide of what viewers worldwide now recognize as the heir to the World Tomorrow broadcast. Armstrong’s final and finest book, Mystery of the Ages. 
Reaching an ever broadening worldwide audience, especially via the Internet, the Key of David has established itself as the only source of the pure, unadulterated preservation of the preaching of Jesus Christ’s prophetic gospel message in the tradition of Herbert Armstrong.
The "only source?"  Even my cats laying in front of my monitor right now are laughing at that one.

Doesn't Six Pack know that Dave Pack's broadcasts have a far more important world wide reach that makes it the worlds largest and most unadulterated pure legacy to HWA's broadcasts?  Poor Six Pack, always trying to be the best and never quit getting there.  His endless imitation of "all things Herb" has led him and his cult into financial troubles with his new mini-me auditorium.  Yet the gullible sheeple still send in their money to finance Six Pack and crew's lavish lifestyles.

UCG: Sing-A-Long With Jelly The Commandment Keeper

Malm: For My Love and My Message You Persecute Me Like They Did Saul

I think someone has a persecution complex and visions of grandeur all wrapped up into one package!

Malm writes:

My dear Laodicean friends; I have worked night and day for five years to point out the errors of idolizing men, organizations and traditions; because God loves you and I love and want you to turn to God with all your hearts that you might be spared.  And for this love and message of warning and repentance you despise me, as Saul despised those he regarded as heretics for not agreeing and submitting to his sect of the Church of God of his day.

God loves his people very very deeply, and he KNOWS that his people also love him; they have just been distracted into thinking that love for and loyalty to a corporate group is the same as loving God.  They have lost sight of any practical zeal for God’s commandments; because they have been turned to believe that God wants them to follow the traditions and instructions of their Group Leader.

Beloved Brethren, you have been warned so that when you are struck down by the rod of God’s correction, you will remember and understand and repent and turn to the Great God with abundant love and zeal.

Then you will understand that I have done this work out of love for you, and that God has loved you, and does love you and will accept you with arms wide open to embrace you and forgive you and comfort those who have been afflicted for a small moment in great tribulation.

Ron Weinland: I will Be Spending The Feast In My Basement

Mike has a letter up today on his blog, "Don't Drink the Flavor Aid by False Prophets," from Ron Weinland concerning the recent decision by the sentencing judge to move his sentencing date to October 29th.

This of course has come as good news since if fully relieves us of all stress concerning how to plan for the upcoming Feast. Laura was still a little uncertain how to plan since nothing was definite concerning what would happen to me. Now we will be able to observe the Feast right here just as we do the weekly Sabbath.

Now Laura can go out and by that Dom PĂ©rignon to wash down the caviar as they have the best Feast ever!

Check out the letter here:  God Places His Name in Ron’s Basement

Beware Of Tricky Looking Cows With Low Morals! They Are Just Like Church of God Ministers!

More fun sent to me today from those wacky folks on Yahoo. The mind of an Armstrongite at work again.....oy!

As a farmer I sometimes liken Ministers to Farm Animals.
Friesian Bulls I liken to the Far right Ministry. Very aggressively astute, to body language / everything is power / Hound weakness.  No morals.
Dangerous. (but give good warnings)

Jersey Bulls. I liken to the far left  Ministry.  Look extremely kind, easy going, yet having a tricky look. They act without warnings to kill .  Acting with complete, astute stealth. Once wild they never cool down. Lack morals by getting into frenzies.
Very Dangerous.

Good Ministers remind me of Short Horn Bulls. Strong yet astute to be kind. Easy going, keeping out of the way.
Dangerous only because of their size.

Bush Bulls of all Breeds. (not domesticated) remind me of the Independent Ministry. Charging anything that moves. Time can tame them.
Dangerous when they see you. Yet kind to their own.

Yet strangely, Cows kill more farmers then Bulls.
A Cow with its calf is extremely dangerous. They trample more than charge, get into frenzies. I liken this to people, with their pet ideas.  

Sheep eat what is before them, they independently act together, needing a shepherd.

Goats only eat what they like, only very clean food, only the tips of growth. Very affectionate, astute, having strong individual personalities.
Need good fences and yokes to control. Respond greatly to kindness.

One cow this guy forgot was the Malmite cow. This is like all the fence sitters in Malmism who are waiting to see if James Malm's prophecies come true before they jump ship with their money.

Armstrongite Says It is OK For Christians To Be Killed "It is about time they got a taste of their own medicine..."

Young Tunisian about to be beheaded for converting to Christianity.

The minds of Armstrongites continue to fascinate me with the sheer stupidity that comes out of their mouths.  A reader on Yahoo sent this to me tonight. It is from one of the Yahoo groups that claims to hold on to all things HWA pre-1986 and has a few Armstrongites pretending to be Jews.

A lot of the putting down of Christianity I see involves the Sunday keeping Christianity. For example, their Christmas programs not being allowed in public places like public schools and elsewhere, their Christmas trees and other Christmas decorations not being allowed in public and and public places. And their religion not being allowed in the public schools. I don't believe or accept anything that they teach so their being persecuted doesn't bother me one bit. It is about time they got a taste of their own medicine, how they have persecuted Jews and others, forcing their filthy pagan religion on others. Maybe this sounds harsh, but maybe you would not think so if your family was Jewish and you had family members that had been persecuted by that evil religion of Sunday keeping Christianity. It needs to be abolished and stamped out completely.

And most of the Christians you read about being persecuted or killed over in the Middle East are the Sunday keeping Christians.

HOWEVER, when those of the true way are lumped in with the Sunday keeping
Christians, that is a cause for concern. And yes, it too is increasing.

Where on this entire earth are Church of God members being martyred, tortured or prohibited from worshiping?  No where!  Yet, thousands of Christians die around the world almost daily because they firmly believe in their faith. These sick Armstrongites pretend to be abused for their beliefs and that the world is picking on them.

Obviously to that warped mind it is OK that Egyptian, Syrian, Pakistani and other Christians are killed for being "fake Sunday keepers."   Apparently it is OK to murder the women and children that have been killed recently.  They deserve it for picking on the True Church of God and for worshiping on Sunday.  Can you imagine the hell hole the world this COG member thinks they will be ruling over in the world tomorrow would be like? Sick, sick people!  Can the depravity of Armstrongism sink any lower?

More Doom, Gloom and Sex From Rod Meredith

Poor Spanky.  He has been shouting this same message for close to 60 years now.  For 60 years he has struck out 100% with his failed prophesies.

As usual with Spanky, it's wars and rumors of wars, droughts, food shortages, famine and gays.  I have never seen a man more obsessed with gays and sex than Spanky.  No matter what the natural disaster or war, sex and gays has to be brought into the equation.

From all indications, a big war is soon to get underway in the Middle East! For Iran continues to rapidly develop the capacity to produce nuclear weapons. Iran is the sworn enemy of Israel and of the United States.
Meanwhile, what many have called the worst drought since the “Dust Bowl” years of the 1930s continues to devastate vast portions of America’s Midwest and Southwest.

Will the United States, Canada, Britain and Australia truly repent and turn to the God of the Bible before more devastating droughts, floods, earthquakes and other natural catastrophes strike? Will we repent of what God Almighty calls the “vile passions” of homosexuality, when “men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting” (Romans 1:26-28)?
Then Spanky makes a bold declaration that all Living Church of God members are to start warning their neighbors, family and friends about the terrible doom and destruction soon to reign down on the US, England and Australia.  There is no way in hell most LCG members will start proselytizing their neighbors.  Most Armstrongites in the lay membership have been embarrassed with their beliefs and do not talk about them publicly.

All of us in this Work of the living God are part of a “team” which the Creator is using to warn the British-descended and American peoples, especially, of the coming Great Tribulation. 
 Brethren, let each one of us go “all out” to help warn our friends and neighbors nearby—and all those around the world who will listen. Jesus Christ said, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest! And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together” (John 4:34-36).

UCG Says, We In The Church of God Are Our Own Greatest Enemy

UCG recently made an observation on the divisions and schism that continue to plague Armstrongism.  Too bad that UCG does not seem to want to fix the problem and how it continues to contribute to it..  How many splits and divisions does UCG need to go through before they realize they are weak and impotent?

Could it be possible that the shattering of the power of the holy people is caused from within? Are the divisions we’ve seen in the last decades fragmenting the Body of Christ? Each fragment is weaker than the whole. Could it be that following in the footsteps of so many before us, we are our own greatest enemies?

There was a great American statesman who once proclaimed that the United States was safe from foreign invasion, and if defeat was to be her destiny, it would have to come from with her own borders.

That seems to be what we are witnessing as the divisions result in more and more fragments of the Church. Each group seems to be working at odds with the others. Each little fragment that leaves become less able to preach the gospel strongly, and power certainly is lost. Is that part of the shattering/scattering that is foreseen? But God did promise Daniel that some would be purified and that the wise would understand (Daniel 12:10).

In the last 25 years, I have observed the Church change to the point that the former association no longer exists and the fragments left over that still strive to preserve the truth have a combined attendance of no more than 40,000 people. In almost every case, the splits, divisions and troubles came from within. Many ministers and members alike seem to have lost the powerful desire to be united and at peace. Paul’s words that there is one body, one Spirit, one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and a measure of grace are words that do not fit what we see today (Ephesians 4:4-6). There are more than 300 splinter groups that believe they make up part or all of the Body of Christ. There is no logical way that we can reason that all of them are the Body of Christ when one group considers the others enemies or antagonists. One can only imagine where we would be today if the ministry and members who are entrusted with the truth could have remained together in one organization. How many saints would there be? What impact would the Church have on the population of the world?  

UCG is right when it talks about troubles originating within.  Look at how they kicked out COGWA members and ministers over disagreements.  Look at the numerous harlot daughters UCG has produced over the last 18 some years.  UCG has no desire to be united and at peace. It's all about power and control with that almighty paycheck waiting at the end of the day.

Pod-casting the Tribulation in the Next 5-6 Weeks?

Apostle Malm is again predicting that the tribulation will begin in 5-6 weeks when the abomination of desolation is set up in Jerusalem.  The apostle thinks he has an inside track into Middle East politics right now and is predicting a soon coming war to defeat the radical Muslims.  According to the apostle the Europeans will really get pissed at the Muslims and defeat their sorry asses leading the way to the antichrist to set up his throne in Jerusalem.  That is all supposed to start this year around Feast time.

Apostle Malm writes:

I do still think that there is a very good chance that the abomination will be set up and the tribulation may begin later this year.  We shall know if this is happening in five or six weeks.
 Then he makes this rather sad comment about his son. 
 If that does happen, I plan to continue with this effort and cover that activities of the two servants of God until the faithful leave.   I hope to see my son married and enjoying some happiness in the prepared place, after he has spent a lifetime helping and  holding me up.  I see the possibility that God might choose me to be one of his two as being remote.

You have to feel sorry for his son. The guy apparently loves his father so much that he has put his life on hold in order to take care of his ill father. Malm only sees hope for his son to be married in Petra.

I look back at the thousands of lives of young people in the Churches of God that had been marred by this kind of thinking.  Lives were put on hold, educational dreams were destroyed, relationships put on the back burner all in the anticipation of the sudden exodus to Petra all because the end times were upon us.  For two thousands years these wolves have been screeching this same message because they inwardly have no hope or security in the One they claim to be following.

He then lays out a subtle hint for hi acolytes to start sending him more moeny.  The apostle wants to start "fireside chat's" through podcasting his earth shattering messages.  Yes folks, lets sit around the fire tonight and talk about you sorry bastards that continue to eat out on Saturdays profaning the Sabbath and how your ass is going to end up in the lake of fire.  That makes me warm and fuzzy thinking about it.  Where's my glass of wine!

If we are given more time I plan to begin making regular audios of about 15 to 30 minutes duration and posting them at the site as well as podcasting them to itunes.  These would not be sermons as such but fireside chats style talks about God and his ways.

As soon as finances permit I want to move from this noisy apartment by a busy highway to increase the quality of said audios.  If I am moving I want to get into a quiet and slightly larger rental apartment where I can set up a room with the necessaries to begin making audio video presentations as well.

I do not need a million dollar studio to do this; a good camera and mic and a quiet room is all that is needed.  I also do not need to spend millions on TV program time; I will be loading these on Youtube and advertising this to the public on the Outreach Site and here.

The apostle has also started an adverting campaign hitting religious sites around the world with pop up ads.  Impotent Dave Pack must be shivering in his boots right now!

The Outreach advertising began in earnest yesterday with a target of 100,000 full page popup ads for 30 days, at religious and media sites in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand set for the campaign.
I don’t want to mislead here.  The vast majority of these exposures will be quickly deleted; however that 1% who read a few pages, comes back for more and tells their friends makes this very worthwhile.  Remember that 1% of 3 million is still over 30,000, and as these events unfold more and more interest will be generated in news and prophecy; leading into doctrine.

When people find out he is connected to Armstrongism the remaining 1% will delete him also.

Apostle Malm Admitting He is A False Prophet?

The apostle writes today pretty damning words about himself.  Malm has set himself up as an end times spokesman for warning the church.  He is just one more in a long line of over 700 men  (and a couple of women) that have come and gone in Armstrongism who have all claimed the same thing.  So far these hundreds of men and women have all been proven false.  Liars all.

In light of that I find Malm's description below for false prophets a perfect description of himself.  God certainly has had no part in setting up Malm as a man to warn the church or the world.

And a false prophet is someone who decides for himself to stand up and speak and to presumptuously declare that his word;, his own words, his own ideas, his own thoughts;  are the word of God. He is presumptuously saying, my words are God’s word. He stands up and says, this is God speaking to you today through me. And then he proceeds to lie in the name of the Lord.

This is an abomination to God because it casts disrepute upon God. When people begin believing this man represents God and all the while he’s lying and deceiving the people.

A false prophet is an abomination. A presumptuous man who says that he is speaking the words of God, when God has not sent him and he is speaking his own words, not the words of God. And he is telling people to do things contrary to the word of God. And he is leading the people about and away from God and toward his own beliefs, his own perspectives, his own positions, his own traditions and his own ideas and is not focusing them on God. This person is an appalling abomination to God.
