All of you hate filled miscreants out there that still claim that HWA set the 1975 date, I am here to tell you, YOU ARE WRONG!!!!!!!! According to Tim Kitchen, Science and Industry set that date, NOT Herb!!!!!
Did Mr. Herbert W Armstrong Set a Date? Did He set the date 1975? Many people took what he wrote in the book "1975 in prophecy" as him setting the date "1975", but is that TRUE? NOTICE these words which will explain WHO made that prediction! IT is in the beginning of the booklet.
"Feverishly, science, technology and industry are working to produce a fantastic, push-button world of leisure by 1975. The emphasis today is on “saving steps.” Everything is to be done for us, by machines. Just push the magic button, and your work will be done automatically."
If you read the Booklet(not many of these accusers have really read it) it explains that SCIENCE and INDUSTRY set the date of 1975! And Mr. Armstrong goes on to explain, IF THAT DATE WAS TRUE, then this is to happen BECAUSE the BIBLE says it will! Is this "setting a date"?
It is science setting a date. But do they get the blame? No. This is how you know Mr. Herbert W Armstrong was a man of God. They'll attach ANYTHING to discredit God's Chosen.
