James Malm: Thanksgiving Is a Babylonian Mystery Religion Holiday.

It is Thanksgiving, a day to celebrate the gifts of creation and blessings.  A day to gather with family and friends. A day that you would think most Armstrongites would be appreciative of  due to its religious undertones.  But is a day for the bottom feeders of the church and society to go into demonic fits of rage over..

Take James Malm for instance.  The self appointed delusional legalistic Pharisee despises Thanksgiving.  I guess the miserable little man needs to sit in his dreary little apartment on this day pounding the keyboard in zeal to get out his personal message of the way he wants scripture to be understood.

If you thought though the Almost Arrested Boob sitting in Arroyo Grande was nuts, Malm may surpass him.

The self-appointed liar writes:
We must remove every sin and every pagan blot on our garments to prepare for the marriage of the Lamb. 
The traditions of the Protestants including Puritans and Anglicans came mainly from Roman Catholicism, the Roman Catholic church is the ancient Babylonian Mysteries traditions were adopted from paganism. 
Sunday, Easter and even Thanksgiving are very ancient pagan holy days.
Why is it that every thing that an Armstrongite come in contact with has to be pagan or evil?  Why are they such miserable human beings?

Malm continues with this...Thanksgiving originated with the Indians as a time to sacrifice virgin women.

Actually the harvest feast was well known by these Indians and was a tradition practiced throughout the new world, as well as the old by the pagans. Thanksgiving is a universal pagan tradition descended and spread from Babel worldwide. Some of whom paid homage for the harvest by sacrificing young virgins.
Those damn Babylonians!  At it again trying to destroy an American and Canadian holiday!

Is it wrong to be thankful? NO, Definitely NOT!
It IS wrong to cloak pagan traditions in the guise of being thankful to the true God. That is what Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving are all about; cloaking rank paganism in an appearance of something good; of making evil seem desirable, godly and good: Of deceiving people into sinning by exalting the pagan pantheon under the illusion and false cloak of pleasing the true God! 
The big question is: To whom are you being thankful? To some pagan god and traditions; or to the Eternal Creator who has given us his own Holy Days to rejoice and be thankful on?
We tend to think of Thanksgiving Day starting in the New World. But actually a thanksgiving for the annual harvest is one of the oldest holidays known to mankind, though celebrated on slightly [due to differences in climate and harvest dates] different dates. In Chaldea, in ancient Egypt and in Greece, the harvest festival was celebrated with great rejoicing. The Hindus and the Chinese observe the gathered harvest with a holiday.” 

The deviate Pharisee fails to mention that pagans also wore clothing, went to the bathroom, had sex, built homes, ate food, got married, eat apples and pumpkins, and many more things we we do today that they also did.

The first two Thanksgivings in the present day United States [Another was an Anglican service in Canada] were Roman Catholic. The Pilgrims can only claim a third one, a correction I suggest should be made in school history books.
The first Thanksgiving’s in the US were celebrated by Spanish explorers, not pilgrims. It is Florida that today proudly claims the first Thanksgiving, with a feast and celebration between the Spanish and Timucuan Indians on September 8, 1565, 56 years before the Mayflower landed at Plymouth in 1621. Therefore, St. Augustine – and not Jamestown – is the first permanent European settlement and oldest city in North America. Another correction for many history books.
pagan apples and pumpkins
Now what could some of the things you’re eating on Thanksgiving symbolized?(For all Our Kitchen Witches Out there!!!!)Turkey-– Native Americans–symbolized the Mother Earth and a shared Harvest.Apples–Celts–rebirth, healing and youthPumpkins--Native American– was symbolic of personalized power (in some cultures) and symbolized the sun.Wishing you a Merry Pagan Thanksgiving!
God’s Thanksgiving is the Fall Harvest Festival of the Feast of Tabernacles!

The American Thanksgiving holiday is in November, but the Canadian Thanksgiving holiday is in October.

One year, the Canadian Thanksgiving holiday in October fell on the Biblical day of Atonement (using the calculated Hebrew calendar).

Even the supposedly well-intentioned stuff that the World comes up with does seem to have a tendency to contradict the Biblical stuff.

Thanksgiving: A day in the United States when atheists gather with family and friends over a turkey dinner replete with mashed potatoes, stuffing (hopefully gluten free), cranberry sauce and gravy to demonstrate their thankfulness for all the scientists, researchers, technologists, physicists, chemists, mathematicians, engineers, medical professionals, farmers who provide the food and all the others who have banded together in society to make all of our lives better.

We're sorry.

Technically, you can't call atheists pagans.

Happy Thanksgiving for all STEM Americans everywhere.

We are all on the same planet which is going around the same star(the sun) which gives everything on earth, the exact same calendar! That includes everything! At least from the sun's perspective. It doesn't matter what we choose to call it! Not one second of time has been lost, and this is called God's Science. The Truth behind any label given by man! Anything else is just wasting time........especially, if you forget to pull the curtain shut when you enter your little booth of Oz, ye 'olde wizard!

This is simply killjoy material from Malm. He loves to throw around theological hand grenades. All the attention and controversy they create. Weeee, it's so much fun. Look at all the fire and smoke I made, whippeeeeee!
All this magnifying the history of thanks giving (I have heard different accounts), but never a magnifying of Gods laws. I have been reading Malms blog long enough to know that he relates to others from a topdog position ie 'I own you and you have no rights.' Try reading a book on assertiveness Malm i.e., I have rights and so do you. Try talking TO people rather than talking DOWN to them. We are not children Malm.

All religious holidays are inventions of men. None are either ordained by God or are evil. So party on!!

Malm forgot to mention that the feast of tabernacles has pagan roots.

I'm glad I didn't read this post until after Thanksgiving Dinner.

Moving from Pilgrim to Puritan, I remember decades ago seeing a college production of Arthur Miller's play, The Crucible. The play, which recounted the Salem Witch Trial in 1692, was a satire of McCarthyism. I feel it could be seen as a satire of Armstrongism as well...

feast of tabernacles has pagan roots

As does the English word "church" through its Germanic etymology. It would be preferable to use congregation or assembly.

Some other dumb ass that came out of that Armstrong crap teaches against Thanksgiving, a man by the name of Isryal Hawkins founder of the house of Yahweh.

Were the Israelites the FIRST to have priests, temples, animal sacrifices, priestly uniforms, holy days, or circumcision? No. They are ALL from pagan origins. God simply attached new meaning to these and gave them to the Israelites. So what's the problem with being thankful and attaching rituals to it?

all of these so called "leaders" trying to out righteous each other show's how shallow their understanding really is...

I guess HWA was right when he privately opined that 90% of the membership didn't get it.

Connie Schmidt said...

When is Malm going to get serious and attack the real "pagan" issues that are distorting society and culture...

Back in Biblical times, one of the problems of the day was the creeping in of customs and ideas that everyone knew about from surrounding nations who were not part of the theocracy that constituted Israel. The roots of all this were actually contemporary with Israel at various times, and were a very powerful influence to be cautioned against. They were a significant part of the pervasive Zeitgeist of those eras.

Today, nobody knows about such things as Asherah poles, passing children through fire for false gods, or the various customs of Nimrod, Babylonians, or Hellenists. Who imagines such things while celebrating of all days Thanksgiving? Thanksgiving is today one of the last vestiges of the Christian era, not a day on which known evil customs of some our own contemporary nations are incorporated into worship.

Lack of relevance is probably the major reason why Armstrongism in all its forms is failing to galvanize people, failing to attract converts and believers. Constantly invoking ancient pagans, and attempting to correlate them with modern Christianity doesn't work in an era when most people have already secularized and commercialized what used to be major "Christian" holidays, and do not even keep them as a part of their worship, but as national customs. Generally speaking, people living today have for the most part neutered all gods. The ACOGs' challenge would first be to stimulate significant numbers of people back into worship and looking to God for their standards prior to being able to motivate them to consider the Armstrong method. It's just another explanation as to why the time and date stamp of Armstrongism has expired.
