Malachi's Message: How True is it?

Before being invited to attend services, people will be asked if they have read Malachi's Message to God's Church Today (which is considered "new revelation") and if they agree with it. How true is the information in this book? The following will show it contains fallacies, contradictions and plagiarizing.

Did Gerald Flurry Plagiarize His Information in Malachi's Message?

In 1990 Jules Dervaes wrote Gerald Flurry a letter, saying that Flurry plagiarized his material when he [Flurry] wrote Malachi's Message.
See this page which shows the 1990 letter from Jules Dervaes. (Just scroll to the words "Here is a 1990 letter from Jules Dervaes to Gerald Flurry warning him of plagiarism.") (Note: The original letter by Dervaes has been removed from the Internet, but ESN has retained a copy of the web document.) This page will also show a side by side comparison of the "Letter to Laodicea" v. "Malachi's Message." [offsite link]

[NOTE: Jules Dervaes was disfellowshipped from WCG in 1986 for questioning new WCG teachings.]

What Did John Amos Really Die of? (John Amos was one of the co-authors of Malachi's Message. Did his death affect how Flurry twisted information about who really wrote Malachi's Message?)

Did Dennis Leap help to re-write Malachi's Message? and Dennis Leap Got in Hot Water For What He Said About MM (August 31, 2005 emails to ESN)

Gerald Flurry: A Religious Fraud (Very interesting testimony about MM and ministers who saw it was flawed)
