Hosea 11:9 God states He is not Man, Jesus was a man and died
“I will not execute the fierceness of My anger; I will not again destroy Ephraim. For I am God, and not man, The Holy One in your midst; And I will not come with terror”.
Your not hearing the well thought out arguments by ministers and brethren that put serious questions in the doctrine taught by COG concerning the Nature of God. Brethren the nature of God is again being written about and papers are in the pipeline to confirm what we have taught since HWA came 1/3 of the way back from the 3 God trinity to the 2 God binitarian view but at every turn and every counter paper to support the 1 God of the bible, it has been utterly rejected, minsters and brethren have been disfellowshipped, and there good questions rejected and censored in lew of church tradition. It will take an act of God for John 1:1 to be read aloud in the William Tyndale bible. The Greek scholar who is never quoted in COG concerning his single greatest gift to translation… But they do say he was a great scholar but remain silent on John1;1 which if you get this scripture wrong you’ll never understand the Shema. Jesus equates eternal life with knowing only his father is truely God! Absolutely astounding words of Jesus. John 17:3
The God of the Old Testament Written by James Malm Shining Light blog

Brethren, I have no interest in hurting the UCG CoE by waiting until they approve their Paper and then analyzing it. Quite the contrary I have felt moved to compile and publish this study before the CoE approves a Paper in December. This Paper is published in love and concern, and in the hope that they will consider these points as they produce and approve their own Position Paper. James Malm Shining Light blog
I read what Mr Malm wrote and then I commented on his version of who is and who isn’t God. He says he has hope and concern and was compelled and he published his version of the truth in Love. So if we take this at face value we might consider Mr Malm as a truth seeking person right. But lets ask Him why my comment below was not accepted or printed ! “Answer” Mr Malm doesn’t believe it, which he is free to do, but that doesn’t make my comments not true. It Reminds me of HWA on radio saying to the public “Don’t believe me look in your bible, which sounded reasonable, until one took the plunge into the WWCOG and the narrative change to believe everything we teach or be disfellowshipped. I have no personal dislike for the Mr Malm or HWA I believe they did, or are doing what they think is right, as do many of us, but again, to not print other scriptural insights is like fake news, or what goes on in mainstream journalism…
Read my comment below to Mr Malms version of two separate Gods, it would take volumes to go through every point he made and in my blog wwpog I have covered many of the John 1:1 Phil 2:5-6 and the John 8:58 in detail and are available for scrutiny. My purpose is not a following, or a making a living, but after sitting and listen to sermons over the last 50 years you hear patterns that the speakers or writers sometimes don’t know there using ! The most abused of these is this non scriptural saying “When Jesus was the God of the old testament!” Of course he wasn’t and I would throw out that I personally have never heard a sermon speaker say ” That when God comes back the second time he will do this or that! They always say when Christ returns or when Jesus returns he will be our High Priest! I always wonder why God isn’t coming back, the only time I hear that is when they quote Rev.21:3 If God were already here with us on earth why would he be coming down from Heaven after the Great White Throne judgement period and Jesus hands all power and authority back to the God ICor. 15:24
Romans 3:3 What advantage then has the Jew, or what is the profit of circumcision? 2 Much in every way! Chiefly because to them were committed the [The scripture} oracles of God. 3 For what if some did not believe? Will their unbelief make the faithfulness of God without effect? Are the Jews the gate keepers to Hebrew scripture and the rules of grammar and words under God’s directive?
Below are my comments on Mr. Malm’s “Nature of God” paper 10/25/18, he denied my comments and controls all comments that are pro biblical monotheism. So fake news you’re not hearing what his readers are thinking if it doesn’t agree with his view. Where is the Love and concern he talks about ?
This is what happens when individuals take it upon themselves to be authorities on Gods word. This paper is so Trinitarian that I don’t know where to begin. The Church of God has never understood the man Jesus or the only one who is truly God John 5:44 because HWA didn’t understand Hebrew or Greek. The second blow of the Trinity is the Jehovah Witness denying the Holy Spirit as a member of this three in one God teaching making their way 1/3 of the way back to 1 God and Father of all. The Hebrew word Elohim is not plural unless the adjective and the verb in the sentence are plural. This makes Gen.1:1 singular because of the singular verb and adjective. The “US” Gen. 1:26 is not explicit in who the Father is addressing ! Could it be the 24 Elders? It is worth studying in lew of Gen.1:1 being singular verse 27 follows with “So God created man in His image. In the image of God He created him male and female He created them. The oracles The scriptures were to be preserved by the Jews not the Lost Ten tribes or HWA. Targum Yonasan paraphrases And God said to the ministering angels “Let Us make Man” When Moses wrote the Torah and came to this verse(Let Us make), which is in the plural and implies that there is more than one Creator, he said: ” Sovereign of the Universe! Why do You thus furnish a pretext for heretics to maintain that there is a plurality of divinities?” “Write” God replied. Whoever wishes to err will err… Instead, let them Learn from their creator Who created all, yet when He came to create Man He took counsel with the ministering angels” (Midrash). Thus God taught that one should always consult others before embarking upon major new initiatives, and He was not deterred by the possibility that some might choose to find a sacrilegious implication in the verse. God’s response, “Whoever wishes to err.” implies that one who sincerely seeks the truth will see it; one who looks for an excuse to blaspheme will find it. Brethren in light of this could one not be moved by the Holy Spirit to at least realize the greater Church of God and this article above is not biblical teaching , but church tradition and can’t stand up to line by line scrutiny of the scriptures. Mark 10:6 Jesus own words say that the father created them male and female! We can’t ignore Jesus words by our own church tradition and Peter in Acts 3:13 The God of Abraham Isaac, and Jacob, The God of our fathers, glorified His servant Jesus. Here we learn that the God of the old testament was the father and that Jesus was His God’s servant. Brethren when you go through all the so-called verses and understand in light of a One God and father bible, you can come to the great hidden knowledge of the truth, which is Who is your God and Father and know one else besides Him. Is.44:6-8 James I wish you had it in you to lead an open discussion concerning The True Nature Of God, not taught in The Church of God. We should be able to reason in the scriptures together but I don’t see it, All I see is fear and control and censorship. Where is the agape? Father God help us all.
