A comment was made on another COG related group about COG members who have left the fold. The naivety of this person is as shallow as the statement. Did you know that if it were not for Herbert Armstrong, none of you nor the entire world would EVER know the truth or have been exposed to it? Even worse, you would have never been part of the church! A church that is the most unified and glorious church ever in human history. God apparently was incapable of keeping his church alive for 1,900 years till Herbert Armstrong arrived on the scene. Anyone with half a wit knows that is utter nonsense. Herbert Armstrong's legacy has not continued on with Dave pack, Gerald Weston, Gerald Flurry, Ron Weinland, Vic Kubik and most assuredly not by Bob Thiel and James Malm.
It is had to believe that in 2017 that some people still believe that salvation comes from knowing Herbert Armstrong and his words.
"I tell them, without God working through Mr. Armstrong, they would not even know the Truth or have been given an opportunity to be a part of the Church of God at this time. I pray they can see through the deception and come back to the foundation. May we all hold fast to these precious truths we have been given!"
