There can be no doubt after this, that The Radio / Worldwide Church of God was a cult.
Herbert Armstrong was so sure that he could violate the laws of the universe: He believed that of the increase of his empire there would be no end.
His empire ended. He never counted on entropy. He never counted on the Arrow of Time. He never paid attention to Doctor Who: “Everything dies.” Herbert Armstrong died. So did his empire.
The Churches of God have invested millions to shape the minds of the membership. If they can control the minds of everyone, who will stand for the righteousness and good of the entire body?
Blast from the past…
Since the death of Herbert W. Armstrong in 1986, the leadership of the Worldwide Church of God has been busily dismantling teachings he held to be “the faith once delivered”. Because of these massive doctrinal changes many members have been defecting. Some high-ranking ministers have also defected to organize spin-off churches to continue the “old ways” of Mr. Armstrong.
