McKelvy under his Luciferian name Jacob No was instrumental in bringing together the leading thinkers of Luciferianism such as Michael Ford and Jeremy Crow to form a well defined Luciferian “church” in 2015. The GCOL had a slick web site, clearly defined administrative systems and rules, and a fast growing membership, especially in South America. The GCOL opened their first physical church building in Houston USA.
According to leaders such as Michael Ford things did not feel right about McKelvy, for instance in an initial GCOL ritual McKelvy required that he be robed and that a new Luciferian member bow to him, an action that seriously runs contrary to the idea of the LHP where the individual is their own god, bowing to nobody. McKelvy a former Mormon apparently had not studied Luciferianism, yet most were happy for him to represent them as leader of a Luciferian group.
“My first experience of the original “ceremony” of self-illumination at a July 4th meeting in 2015 (I was asked to attend) he had his “wife” robe him (yes, she did) and then had a potential member “KNEEL BEFORE HIM” and pledge his “allegiance” to the group. I actually left in middle of it as it pissed me off so badly I could not be respectful in his domain any longer.” Michael Ford via Facebook 28 Aug 2016 10.21pm
Early fears expressed by Luciferians such as on the Luciferian Research Society forum that GCOL might become a source of tyranny seemed to manifest in the activities of McKelvy who was acting without consultation with other GCOL board members. Events came to a head when board members insisted on looking at financial records and discovered that McKelvy was using GCOL funds for his own use such as holidays and the purchase of musical instruments.
McKelvy resigned from the GCOL, and the board discovered they were insolvent, unable to pay suppliers for services rendered or honor orders for products paid for. The GCOL board came under fire from those who considered the group should have taken McKelvy to court to recover monies he had apparently misappropriated. From a personal business point of view, if an individual in my business had committed fraud, I would have referred this to the police, and instituted civil court action to recover lost monies.
GCOL today is a shadow of its former self, though it continues to limp on despite a damaged reputation and resignations. Former and current members of GCOL have bitterly clashed over the toxic fallout of McKelvy’s activities and over Luciferian philosophy.
McKelvy recently became a born-again Christian, a propaganda boon to the Christian evangelists, where he is training to become a prophetic pastor, which some cynical observers consider is another financial scam by McKelvy.
According to McKelvy in his public speeches to Christian gatherings, he considered GCOL his army of Satan founded to destroy Christianity and Islam. The ideas of McKelvy contradicts the attitudes of Luciferian GCOL leaders such as Jeremy Crow who promotes Luciferianism as an individual path of empowerment rather than as anything to wage war on other religions.
It remains to be seen if GCOL can overcome dire challenges to its reputation, finances, administration and the ongoing civil war between various former and current members over the direction of Luciferianism.
