Last Great Day

I was a baptized member of the Worldwide Church of God when Herbert W. Armstrong was alive. Since Mr. Armstrong's death, January 16, 1986, there has been a monstrous betrayal of the brethren by Protestant wolves who were among us. Although shaken, the faithful remain true to what we were taught by God's apostle, Herbert W. Armstrong.
The taboo-shattering documentary that Newsweek says, “irreverently lays out the case that Jesus Christ never existed.”If we haven’t already, we all need to begin the quest to answer the ultimate question, “Does God exist?” Reading the booklet The Real God: Proofs and Promises is an excellent place to start.
I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems. On the cross, he forgave the people who crucified him. Jesus wanted us to be loving and forgiving. I don’t know what makes people so cruel...The better question might be: What brings a person to this depth of blasphemy and lack of biblical understanding in his mind?
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!Elton John is slinging blasphemous mud at Jesus Christ, the Savior of all mankind. But who really is behind all this? There is a spirit war going on and Satan, the prince of the power of the air (Ephesians 2:2), continues to step up his game in deceiving society (Revelation 12:9). He is the real culprit, instilling doubt and cynicism at an unprecedented worldwide scale. We have to be ready; we must be prepared to combat in our own minds these onslaughts against the Bible, and against the very concept of Christ Himself.
Better be sure whether this brand is upon you! Without it, no man will be able to buy or sell! Without it, you may be tortured even unto death! But with it, you shall suffer the SEVEN LAST PLAGUES OF GOD
