Commandment keeping and Christians

Recently someone said to me, "I still have doubts and unanswered questions about being under the law, the Ten Commandments, and also under God's grace. Much of Tomorrow's World's interpretations and teachings make perfect sense, but it is so difficult to be de-programmed [of this world's wrong teachings]!"

My wife and I just returned from a visit to Louisiana. Although our visit was short, we spent part of our trip touring the devastation in the area around New Orleans. I wish every citizen in our nation could see what we saw that day, with their own eyes, not just through the news media.


A Time of Restoring

Years ago, a friend and I stood on a mountain crest located on the Cumberland Plateau. Before us were broad grassy meadows, created from land that had been strip-mined. Although major damage had been done to the land through clear-cutting of timber and strip-mining, reclamation was producing positive results. The meadows were pleasing to the eye and the animal ...


These Disunited States of America

As we remember 1776 and celebrate our 241st anniversary as a nation, deep feelings of patriotism stir within us, and we are reminded, if only for a day, of the heroic beginnings of this great nation.


Herbert W. Armstrong remembered

  2. Roderick C. Meredith (1930-2017)

As many of you may remember, January 16th was the 20th anniversary of the death of Herbert W. Armstrong. It is very helpful, I feel, to remember that Christ used this man—human as he was—more than anyone we know of for the last several hundred years. A number of us in this Work had the privilege of working with him closely for decades. It was a privilege that we...


It's not "just us chickens"

Thanks to the news media, the world can now add chickens to the things we must worry about killing us. To date, 100 million domestic birds have been killed and it is reported 60 of the 100 people infected with the human form, since 1997, have died.


The two faces of New Year celebrations

The winter tide festivities continue on, with people moving almost mindlessly through them—looking neither left nor right, only onward to the end of them, full of parties, food, drink and maxed-out credit cards.


Are You Going to Heaven? Who Really Knows?

On Tuesday, December 20, 2005, ABC aired a special two-hour program entitled, "Heaven: Where Is It? How Do We Get There?" To produce the program, Barbara Walters spent a whole year traveling the world, "interviewing religious leaders, scientists, believers and non-believers alike to get a range of perspectives on heaven and the afterlife".


Jolly Old St. Nick, indeed

Contrary to what most people think, the trappings of Christmas are not based on Jesus Christ of the Bible, but are deeply rooted in pre-Christian oral legends, sanitized by theologians, historians and, in some instances, the editorial rooms of more modern times. Of all these legends, none has grown to the stature and popularity of that of Santa Claus.
