Transformed by Truth?????
Even though the Worldwide Church of God knows what a despicable person Herbert W. Armstrong was, they still must keep and praise him as their founder.

It has to be hard for him to find good things to say about someone that he really wants to bash. Can it be that money is now more important than truth?

p169 - "This evangelical influence is one of the strongest reasons Mr. Armstrong consistently pointed to the Bible as his final authority for faith and practice, ..."
