A little information about Herbert W. Armstrong

From a forum:

A little information about Herbert W. Armstrong

His unique doctrines and theological teachings, sometimes referred to by critics as Armstrongism, included the interpretation of biblical prophecy through the belief that the British and American peoples were descended from the lost ten tribes of ancient Israel and the requirement of observing Mosaic Law including the laws concerning the Sabbath, dietary prohibitions, and the Levitical "Holy Days".


The Sabbath and dietary laws were in existence before Moses, and the Holy Days are forever. After all, Yeshua commands us to commemorate His sacrifice, His death, every PASSOVER, and the Sabbath-keeping Church of God was founded upon the holy day of PENTECOST. Good thing those Jewish converts didn't fall for the religious lies popular today that blather they were all "done away!" (1 John 2:4, Titus 1:16).

Herbert W. Armstrong
was courageously teaching the plain truth around the world, announcing the good news of the Wonderful World Tomorrow, the Kingdom of God that will soon be established with the return and reign of Christ.

Wrong.

Look up "dispensations." The Mosaic law was given ONLY to the Jews--PHYSICAL Israel.

Armstrong taught a form of "replacement theology"--the church replacing Israel. The church does NOT replace Israel (see Romans 11 KJV).

Christians today are not bound by ANY law, though the Holy Spirit will convict you if you do wrong. The Sabbath is not a requirement (see Romans 14:5).

The church will be "raptured" up (see 2 Thessalonians 2)--the church won't "flee to Petra" or whatever. During the Tribulation that follows, 144,000 Jews will be sealed.
