“I do not believe in the teachings of Herbert W Armstrong!”
If you cannot make that statement, then it is time for you to repent of your idolatry! I believe in the teachings of the Bible and of Jesus Christ, and if the teachings of Herbert W Armstrong happen to line up with them, so be it! To those who will not repent of their idolatry may find themselves waking up after the Millennium!
Time may be short, and it is only through the patience of the Father that such blatant idolatry has been permitted in His midst for so long.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
HWA was a man used by God, but he was not perfect, and indeed no one can be perfect before a just and holy God. To quote his words as if they were God’s own words is blatant idolatry! It is preaching another gospel!
6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel [any gospel other than what the apostles gave us] unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
~ Gal 1:6-9
You are not saved by the teachings of HWA. HWA did not write any of the NT. Mystery of the Ages is not the Bible. HWA himself did not claim to be a prophet. HWA did not shed his blood and die for you. Christ, the Messiah predicted in the OT, is the only intermediary between you and God!
