Paul, the apostle of Jesus Christ, wrote: “I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you.For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel. Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me. For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church.” (1 Corinthians 4:14-17)
In the same way, Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong, the apostle of Jesus Christ, wrote: “I don’t know any reason why God should have chosen me. I’m no better than anybody else. I’ve known all kinds of people with more ability than I have, better personality, better appearance, better everything than I have. But God didn’t choose any of them. He hasn’t used any of them. So He had to take someone who wasn’t quite so good and use to bring YOU THE TRUTH THAT YOU HAVE HAD. And all of you directly or indirectly are my children in the Lord, because you got the knowledge directly or indirectly through me. Christ got it to me; but Christ is the living Word, and I got it through the living Word in print, in writing, just as the early apostles did.” (Sermon: The Need for Spiritual Knowledge, given August 29, 1981)
The Worldwide Church of God was begotten through the gospel preached through Herbert W. Armstrong, the apostle of Christ. Any true minister, or true brethren, will BRING YOU TO REMEMBRANCE of what Christ’s apostle taught! If he or she leads you to a group that teaches CONTRARY to what was taught, then they are not bringing you to remembrance.
REMEMBER WHAT WAS TAUGHT UNTO YOU. HOLD FAST TO IT.(Revelation 3:11)
For the apostle of Christ has laid the foundation, which is Christ, and WE OUGHT TO GROW UPON THAT FOUNDATION FORSAKING NOTHING, NEITHER TURNING TO THE LEFT NOR TO THE RIGHT, BUT SOLIDLY BUILT UPON THE FOUNDATION, RIGHT IN LINE WITH THE MEASURING-LINE!
