The truth is their tormentor

Yesterday, out of mere curiosity, I looked in on Otagosh, the so-called intellectual blog of Gavin Rumney. Otagosh is aspiring to discuss the authority of the bible, drawing on the writings of a cabal of disunited scholars. In addition, Gavin likes to think that he has sufficient précis skills and intellectual knowledge to undertake competent book reviews. Nothing is more laughable.

But what was even more risible, was the following: “ You're currently logged in as Tom Mahon. You may not comment with this account.” It would be a waste of my precious time to comment on any of the drivel posted on Otagosh, even if I was not banned from doing so.

However, I note that Gavin’s fan club, who is only interested in the sordid actualities of the lives of former WCG ministers, have deserted him. For example, Dennis The Depressed, Douglas The Deranged and Corky The Irrational, three former prolific contributors to AW blog are not posting at Otagosh. Perhaps even these mad men find the content of the blog over pretentious.

I also note that Gavin, who is as unstable as water, have resurrected AW blog, yet again: albeit, he says, “for a week or two." The leopard cannot change its spots, and the dog always returns to its own vomit.

Finally, I consider it an honour to be banned from posting at Otagosh, Phenyngula and being shunned by those who peddled the theory of evolution.

Having loved this Present world…

The final words of most great men are often worth remembering. So it is worth examining a passage in the final words of the Chosen Vessel. In the Chosen Vessel’s second epistle to Timothy, we read: “For Demas has forsaken me, having loved this present world…”(2 Tim. 4:10). What does it mean to love this present world, and who or what would have caused Demas to forsake Paul?

To answer these questions we have to examine some very pertinant, biblical texts. The Apostle John was inspired to write: "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the father in not in him(1 John 2:15). Now, it should be evident that God is not saying, people should not love the beauty of nature, For the text goes on to say: "For all that are in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world"(1 John 2:16). The phrase, "is of the world," means is of Satan, who is the god of this world.

So when Demas forsake Paul he was leaving God to follow the devil. Of course, Demas in not alone, for many former members of The Worldwide Church of God, who love this present world, have forsaken the wholesome teachings of the bible to embraced the doctrines of Satan. For example, the leaders and ministers/hirelings of UCG, LCG, PCG, RCG and COG/Hulme have also forsaken Paul, because they love this present world.
