Do You Know What The Number One Sin in Armstrongism Is?


From those fun folk on Yahoo. All those painted whores in the COG is what has lead to its downfall.

I believe this doctrine is the most under-rated doctrine in the splinter groups today. Allowing make-up and teaching contrary to what Mr. Armstrong taught in the 1980's when he was getting the Church back on track really exposes how liberal and off-track spiritually many have truly become since Mr. Armstrong was alive.

According to Mr. Armstrong's teachings in this 1981 article, two of the top three splinter groups were getting off-track from their very start because they allowed make-up which Mr. Armstrong declared to be a sin. And it was this change in the make-up doctrine that Satan began injecting liberalism into the Church in order to get the Church off the track in the 1970's:

Herbert Armstrong declared makeup sin.

Herbert Armstrong declared makeup sin.

No mention of Jesus saying anything about it, just Herbert Armstrong.

How does that work?

I remember recently finding a 'mark your bible' paper amongst my old files. Odd feeling came over me when the subjects most prominent were birthdays, make-up and the other doctrines of a trivial nature that we made such a big deal about.

yes it was the opinion of a man that makeup is sin....

I guess that using his logic, clothing is a sin too...I mean, how dare a woman think she can improve on what God made by covering it in nice, colorful fabrics...

Make-up prohibition is bullshit teaching of WCG. HWA allowed make-up when his second wife Ramona refused to remove her make-up. So as not to be embarassed, make up was allowed. When he divorced her, back again to this teaching of no make-up.

This is nothing but a doctrine of convenience. The Bible is interpreted to suit whims and wishes of HWA. It has nothing to do with actual Bible teaching.
