The Church of God claims that Christ Ahnsahnghong is Jesus who came a second time because He restored the Passover. However, the Worldwide Church of God, which was established by Herbert W. Armstrong in the late 1930s, keeps all the festivals of the Old Testament as well as the Passover. Therefore, if we follow the logic of the Church of God, Herbert W. Armstrong should be the Second Coming Jesus, not Ahnsahnghong.
7. Through his other absurd arguments, we can understand that Armstrong has no part with the restoration of the new covenant
If we take a glance at the church of Armstrong, we can understand how absurd the arguments of the opponents are who take words from Armstrong.
Armstrong called himself an “apostle,” but he blindly followed the sunset theory and insisted on the food regulation of clean and unclean animals (Leviticus 11), without throwing off the teachings of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. The food regulation, which distinguishes clean animals and unclean animals according to the Old Testament, is against the teaching in Ac 15:28-29.
Since their food regulation is going back to the Law of Moses of the Old Testament which was changed by Christ, they are alienated from Christ (Gal 5:4). Moreover, the Bible already prophesies that the abstinence from certain foods is a teaching from demons which goes against the teachings in the time of the apostles (1 Ti 4:1-3).
Also, Armstrong insisted that God the Father and God the Son are different just as Jehovah’s Witnesses’ claim, and that the Holy Spirit is not an entity with human characteristics. Similar to the Mormon doctrine which claims that the American Indian is one of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, Armstrong insisted that the people from England―the English people who crossed to the new continent, including Americans―are the direct lineal descendants of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, which is called the British Israelism. How can this foolish man understand the profound truth of the new covenant?
Therefore, those who slander the truth by quoting from Armstrong are wrong, and they foolishly believe that the date is everything in the Passover.
