What would the Church of God movement be without ANOTHER college or school? After Herbert Armstrong started three different colleges, all of the bigger COG splinter groups feel that they need to do the same thing. UCG has its Ambassador Bible College. COGWA has its Foundations Instiute, Center for Biblical Studies. Living Church of God has Living University. Philadelphia Church of God has its Herbert W Armstrong College. Dave Pack has sadly missed that band wagon, at least so far, due to his dramatic drop in income. Various other splinter groups also have small "bible based" courses, and the vast majority still have links up to the old Ambassador College Correspondence Course.
Now we have another self appointed man who feels his wisdom surpasses all other COG members, thus he feels the need to educate as many as possible to become his followers. This man knows more about the Bible than any other COG leader ever has in human history. And no, it is NOT Bob Thiel. Thiel has been left whimpering in the shadows of his home office due to the miraculous knowledge this end time witness and prophet has. This miraculous man is James Malm! Malm and his Wiccan sidekick Constance have now ventured out into a new "school."
Welcome to the Shining Light School of Biblical Studies! Aren't you excited????? Can't you just feel the ZEAL!!!!!! Malm and Constance now have set themselves up as the end-all in biblical knowledge. There are no other people on this earth who are as righteous and filled with zeal as these two are. It is no wonder Thiel is whimpering in the corner of his study. No man on this earth has such an inside track into the mind of the Old Testament God than James Malm, who has elevated the law to a higher position than Jesus had ever imagined his own self attaining.
Where would the Church of God be without all of these prophets, teachers, and end time guru's leading the church astray? Eighty years of Armstrongism and this is what we end up with...Malm, Pack, Thiel, Flurry, Kubik and Meredith. Who would ever have imagined!
