It is 2019 and these are desperate times for many splinter group Church of God leaders. With so many of them floundering by the roadside with ineffectual ministries, they are always seeking new ways to con followers into giving them money to fund their exculsive "work".
The latest is from our favorite Church of God Chief Pharisee, official zealot and chief bastardizer of the law, James Malm.
For some time now he has done nothing but park his pharisacial butt at the kitchen table cranking out articles and booklets in order to stir up the zeal that he sees missing in all the COG's. Never has the church had such a zealot that has turned the law into such a burden that it drags people down into a miserable existence. The few that follow him know they can never measure up to all of his lofty demands.
Because his followers come and go their money does too. Never one to pass up a free handout due to his unwillingness to work, he has resorted to a novel new way to raise money from gullible followers by claiming if they buy his books with "tithe" money they will never miss it. It will be almost like it will be a gift from God to them.
