James Malm Continues to Mislead


Instead of repenting for being a false accuser of me, James Malm remains an accuser (cf. Revelation 12:10) as he continues to attempt to mislead people about me and my writings.  The latest such accusations from James Malm included the following:

Robert Thiel has just published a defense of his book, in which he justifies studying and applying the prophecies and beliefs of the heathan to the Word of God; by claiming that the Apostle Paul did so.…Paul does not quote false prophets or gods, or false religious beliefs; and Paul does not apply any false religion  to Christian doctrine.Is Paul studying and teaching pagan doctrine and prophecy, or is he teaching true Christian Doctrine?

In another place Paul tells the Athenians that they are much too superstitious and then proceeds to teach them about a new and unknown God.

Acts 17:22  22: Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
23: For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. 24: God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

Is Paul studying and teaching pagan doctrine and prophecy, or is he teaching true Christian Doctrine?

The fact is: that neither Paul, nor any other apostle, nor any Godly person: has ever accepted the teachings of the pagans and heathans about their prophecies, doctrines or religious teachings; and applied them to, or mixed them with the Word of God.

Anyone who says otherwise is either IGNORANT, or he is deliberately attempting to DECEIVE people. And anyone who does mix paganism with God’s Word; is a false prophet and a false teacher, regardless of whether he claims to be a prophet or not. Deu 13.  This behaviour is something that inspires revulsion in anyone who has the spirit of God: for what has light to do with darkness?.

James Malm errs in NOT understanding my writings, the Bible, nor the history of the Church of God.  I have not accepted pagan teachings, though he falsely seems to so assert.  Nor can he prove that I have.  The Apostle Paul faced false accusers as well who could not prove their false accusations (Acts 24:13).

Furthermore, James Malm apparently misunderstood that the Apostle Paul referred to an altar dedicated to a pagan god as  “the unknown god” (Acts 17:23) as a way to reach people without a Jewish background.  The altar was clearly built by heathens probably because they were worried that they overlooked one of the pagan gods.   So it possibly could be suggested that in one sense, Paul mixed things together to reach Gentiles–but that did not change his biblical teachings, nor have I changed from biblical teachings either.

The reason why I have cited non-biblical prophecies is to reach people without a COG background.  I have not endorsed non-biblical prophecies as God-inspired.  I have explained Protestant (like the rapture) and other prophetic errors in my book–which perhaps James Malm should actually have read and understood properly BEFORE he inaccurately judged it.

Furthermore, James Malm states that no Godly person accepted the teachings of pagans about prophecy and hints that somehow I am ungodly because my book includes references to secular predictions.

What he fails to recall is that the old Radio Church of God clearly taught that Catholic prophecies were something that true Christians should have knowledge of.

On pages 9-12 of the April 1961 issue of the Good News was an article by David Jon Hill titled Christ or Antichrist?. The old Good News magazine article specifically quotes and explains some of the very same Catholic prophecies and mystics that are in my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect.  Since I believe that James Malm used to have a WCG/COG background, he appears ignorant of the fact that I am simply continuing a practice that Paul first began that the old Radio Church of God continued.  Furthermore, by relating prophecies to world events (which I have done with 2012 and reports from scientists) the late Herbert W. Armstrong personally tried to reach broad segments of society which I am also trying to do.

Anyway the 1961 Good News article, like my 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect book, clearly says to compare what is taught with the Bible.  And it specifically asks readers to compare Catholic writings and predictions with the Bible–which is also consistent with my book.

The fact that James Malm’s predictions have repeatedly been wrong makes him in no way a proper judge of matters that he still seems not to understand.  I am not a false prophet, nor have I deviated from teaching biblical truths.
