“I have found that nearly all the TROUBLES among our membership have come from those employed–those GETTING their salaries from God’s Church. We have had little trouble and very few problems with lay brethren who GIVE offerings and PAY tithes to God’s Church. ” Quote from Herbert W. Armstrong in December 27, 1979 Pastor General’s Report Think ON THIS! Are you trying to GET a salary? Are you looking into different churches, simply for a SALARY? God’s Church has experienced problems like this before. If you are focusing on your PAYCHECK, and on what you can GET, you must realize that THAT IS CONTRARY TO THE WAY OF GOD! Repent, immediately!]]>
“To my great sorrow I learned a costly lesson. Some have merely “joined” the Church–not being really converted as I had supposed. Human nature was still with them. They still were on the “GETTING” way of life–not Christ’s “GIVING” way. To my great sorrow, I had to learn that, even in the Church, many who are GETTING their living on salary from the Church, still live by the “GETTING” standard, not God’s way of “GIVING.” The more they GET the more they want–and when they get it they are never satisfied, but want more.” Quote from Herbert W. Armstrong, Pastor General’s Report December 27, 1979

- Are you joining with one of these “churches” or “organizations” simply because you want a PAYCHECK?
- Are you trying to find “the closest group to the truth” in order to GET what YOU WANT? Fellowship? Something to do?
- Which way are you living? Are you getting back on track?
