Talk about enthusiasm! Be Our Guest — put our service to the test! Yes!
Sixtieth Anniversary! What a great spectacle — joining Pentatonix in celebration!
As opposed to…
“Prepare for Doomsday and Armageddon” — man, that’s a buzzkill. Don’t watch very much of it. If this represents God, God deserves to lose.
Ames says (please, don’t need to watch the video for the sake of your own mental health):
“Some members of the larger church of God cannot discern the signs of the time; some consider Bible Prophecy so negative that they falsely believe that they should ignore it. That’s extremely dangerous: They are endangering their spiritual lives. God gives us warning for our benefit to preserve us alive.”
That’s not very believable, since the Living Church of God presenters make it seem like they’re already dead. They’ve hung on to life just long enough to make Dystopian messages of gloom, draining whatever energy you may have had to plunge you into depression. That way, it won’t seem like such a big deal when you give them all your money — and, by the way, don’t just tithe and tithe and tithe with offerings and special funds added — be sure to leave everything you have left to them. With the certain death spiral you’ll be in after absorbing their material of death, doom and destruction, it’s symmetric. Roderick Meredith has been at this since the 1950s and has proved that it’s profitable and wise to ignore the Bible Prophecy he’s been pushing — none of it has come to pass over the past 60 years and doesn’t seem to be making any headway on the world scene (and lots of bad things do happen in the world, but these ignoramuses haven’t had any track record of accuracy at all, having missed such things as the 2008 worldwide economic meltdown and 9/11 before that). You’d be healthier, happier and better off to ignore the Cult of Herbert Armstrong version of Bible Prophecy, based on the thoroughly debunked British Israelism as the Key to Prophecy — it hasn’t worked, it isn’t working and it never will work.
And worst of all, if you listen to these morons, they will drain your energy.
Makes you wonder what eternity has to offer. Drudgery, no doubt.
Of course, for the ultimate drain in energy, consider the approach of Ken Ham to science… falsely so called… actually, it’s not science based on observation, it’s magical thinking based on wishful thinking (please, for the sake of your health and mental stability, don’t watch this… or very much of it — it’s debilitating):
Debunked creationism — just what the world doesn’t need. And couldn’t we be a bit more compact, making a greater impact with brevity being the soul of wit? Guess not. Tiresome. This gives entirely new meaning to Ham-fisted. The message should be brochure sized. A musical motif could help.
Now it isn’t about youth — it’s about the senior generations providing wisdom to help the youth to channel the energy for constructive purposes with good judgment. The examples above represent major fail.
Better is the fresh, energetic approach to science brought by vibrant Millennials:
You’ll find life’s beauty, not preoccupation with death.
A more energetic but likely less well received video by Armstrongists (it’s based on Taylor Swift, speaks of flirting on iPhone and has something called STEM) about science follows:
We can hear it now from Armstrongists who watched the video (both of them) — “What’s STEM!”.
And really, what Armstrongist would take a selfie?
Don’t be dumb.
Armstrongists: Go and take your nap now. It will be bedtime in an hour at 9 P.M.
Vivacious. Energetic. Full of life. Enthusiastic. Cheerful.
None of these things describe Armstrongism.
