And Now Christ Sets Church Back On Track Doctrinally

By Herbert W Armstrong

Until about 1969 we in God’s Church did all “speak the same things”. By 1978 many of the ministers were speaking different things! God had withdrawn from us His blessing and power that for 35 YEARS caused the Work of His Church to grow at the approximate rate of 30 percent every years of the preceding year!

WHAT CAUSED GOD TO WITHDRAW HIS BLESSING AND POWER? Continue reading…

OPINION: The World Tomorrow is SPONSORED by the Worldwide Church of God

  “And, by the way, if you look at the telecast tomorrow morning, I wonder are you indifferent — thinking “Well I don’t need to look at it”? Well, brethren, it’s money that you pay in. Of course, it’s God’s money. But that’s what’s paying for it, and each one of those telecasts tomorrow (The one tomorrow morning on Channel 11, and the one tomorrow evening on Channel 9.), each one of those just for that one-half hour is costing several thousand dollars. Did you know that? But they reach a lot of people; and telephone calls come in by the hundreds and the thousands as a result immediately, from people clear outside of the Church. But that’s part of your work. I just happen to be the speaker. But you notice that it says, “This is sponsored by the Worldwide Church of God.” Not by me. I don’t sponsor it. You are all the Worldwide Church of God. The Worldwide Church of God is all of us combined, put together. And we’re ONE BODY fitly framed and joined together whether we are in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the Philippines, South Africa, England, Germany, or where — ONE BODY, many offices, many things to do; but one body. So let’s understand that. And each of us has his own job to do. That’s why one scripture says, “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling” because we each have something to do.” [Excerpt from Sermon: Success Based on God’s Law given by Herbert W. Armstrong]

ANOTHER VON HABSBURG SPEAKS OUT!

ANOTHER VON HABSBURG SPEAKS OUT!

By Gene Hogberg

Pastor General’s Report November 16, 1984

  With Mr. Reagan robustly returned to a second four-year term, the prospects of improved Soviet-American relations appear remote. Moscow is presently in no mood to concretely negotiate arms reduction talks. Furthermore, the Kremlin is moving to militarily prop up its Central American surrogate, Nicaragua, which has had difficulty fending off the attacks of the U.S.- supported “contra” forces .

TV Audience Impressed by Lack of Pleas for Money

TV Audience Impressed by Lack of Pleas for Money

By Richard Rice

Pastor General’s Report July 13, 1984

  “WORLD TOMORROW” viewers frequently comment on’ the sharp contrast between Mr. Armstrong’s telecast and other religious programs. They especially notice the absence of soliciting and begging the audience for contributions. This policy creates a favorable impression and enhances their enjoyment of the program. Following are a few of the many letters we’ve received: I have seen your television programs regularly and been quite impressed. I feel that your approach is quite different from any other TV evangelist–no flashy jewelry, no pleas for money, no playing on people’s conscience about how expensive it is to stay on TV. (One came on last week and asked to help him repay a $5 million debt!) I have pledged 10% of my profit to the Lord’s work. Here is this week’s installment. D.H. (Clearwater, KS) Mr. Armstrong is really outstanding. I’m the kind of person who thinks there’s a “catch” to everything, but I haven’t caught his catch yet! I think the thing that impressed me most was that he wasn’t asking for money. All of the other religious programs to me are boring. But Mr. Armstrong is really crying out, and if what he is saying is really going to come to pass, which I think it will, then it’s going to be great! A.F. (New Bedford, MA) I am very happy you don’t beg and cry for money all the time, saying “God will provide.” If God will provide then there is no need to beg and cry! It appears to me that these other people are of little faith. I also enjoy your programs, which I think get down to the facts. W.P. (Aurora, IL) I’ve looked into a lot of churches and the number one thing they ask for right off the bat is money. I saw one minister last Sun- day asking people to send in all the money they could. I heard Mr. Armstrong’s program in Oregon–he said he’s not asking for money–I didn’t understand that. Then it hit me. His is the real Church. These other guys equate religion with money. I guess I won’t watch them anymore. P.N. (Riverside, CA) I saw your program for the first time this morning and I am im- pressed, I was awake all night and tried to go to sleep while you were on, but no way! You keep the attention of those who have no . “oomph” left. You’re terrific! I am also impressed that you don’t ask for a donation of any kind. I have found with my friends that the biggest stumbling block to watching Christian TV is that they are offended when ministers whine and beg for money. Now I can tell them just to relax and watch you! Praise God for a second Paul! L.A. (Schaumburg, IL) Mr. Armstrong impresses me because he doesn’t beg and whine for money. He’s straightforward in his approach. I was so excited that I called my sister in Massachusetts. L.L. (Pompano Beach, FL) My husband and I listened to your television broadcast tonight. Let me tell you we were deeply impressed. You are the first minister of God’s Word who doesn’t expect money for his services in God’s work. We were really pleased to hear the sincere truth about God that you told. Mr. & Mrs. L.S. (Wagoner, OK) I was so happy to see someone spreading the Word without de- manding money. I am out of work right now and have only love, prayers, praise and works to give. Other preachers have made me feel bad because I don’t have money to give them, but you made me realize that Jesus would rather have my heart than my cash. S.B. (Seal Rock, OR) It was a very startling experience for me to watch your program and not be requested to send money. When I saw you begin your talk about the magazine you offer, I thought, “here comes the pitch.” But lo and behold–no pitch! I realize that TV exposure is very expensive, but I just cannot understand why a person who feels directed by God to spread the word should expect his audi- ence to pay for whatever expensive vehicle he decides to use for this purpose.

Church Literature Provides Long Sought Answers

Church Literature Provides Long Sought Answers

By Richard Rice

Pastor General’s Report June 22, 1984

  Many people who come in contact with God’s Church are amazed at what they are learning and often mention that their lifelong questions are now being answered. Some have searched for the truth over a period of years, or even decades, and are thrilled that God has finally led them to His Church. The following comments convey the zeal and enthusiasm of those discovering God’s truth through our literature. How I wish I had known about you, The PLAIN TRUTH and the booklets that I receive and love, sooner. I am sixty years old and never had a goal in life until these past few months, due to your teaching. I desperately needed to know more. D.M. (Belleville, NJ) I started reading The PLAIN TRUTH magazine approximately six months ago and I must tell you that it has affected me deeply. Also, I have read some of the booklets offered free of charge, and enrolled in the Bible correspondence course. I was raised in “religion” but never felt satisfied–so many questions remained unanswered, so many explanations and interpre- tations seemed inadequate. Through the years, I have spoken with many people of various churches and beliefs and found myself even more confused. I now know that I have at last found the truth. By reading, studying and listening to Mr. Armstrong’s broadcasts, I find that my doubts are being put to rest and my questions are being answered, sometimes in such rapid succession that it is almost breathtaking. J.J. (Dover, NH) I can’t believe what a difference it makes to read just one arti- cle from your timely magazine. The articles are enriching and the information you give is priceless. Your booklets have also benefited me tremendously. I have finally found the answers to important questions and I’m experiencing a more total inner peace. A.G. (Goshen, CA) Please send me the free literature as listed. I do want to thank you dearly for the booklets that I have already received. They have helped me tremendously. They have answered my questions and erased my doubts. They also helped me to answer questions asked by my children. Thank you for the literature that I can pass on to them. I’m 61, a Catholic and not ashamed to admit that I have learned more this year through your literature than I have since I’ve been able to read and I now understand what life is all about. A.K. (Aliquippa, PA) I’ve been a subscriber to your magazines for seven years now. In addition, I’ve taken your Bible correspondence course. I’ve read this material and compared it to the Bible and the customs in which I was raised. I’ve gone to the point of consulting numerous ministers with all my questions and absolutely not one could answer more than two of my questions. The material that I’ve received from your magazines has ALL the answers to my questions. Mrs. R.T. (Dayton, OH) I have recently become interested in your literature. It is extremely eye-opening. Your material has made me realize all the questions I had about the Bible in the past may be answered. In just one issue of The PLAIN TRUTH my eyes have been opened about so many things. I have already sent in a card for my year’s sub- scription, but listed below are some other booklets I am interested in. P.T. (Linden, TX) For the past year I have read your literature and my Bible is now so clear–just like a jigsaw puzzle being completed. As I told one of your ministers on the phone, just as I form a question in my mind, the next booklet I read gives the answer. I am growing in the knowledge of my Lord. G.O. (Williston, TN)]]>
