The First Reforms

Transformed by Truth, by Joseph Tkach
Chapter 8

Not long before he died, Herbert Armstrong told my dad that some things in the church needed to be changed. He didn’t make a list of the changes he had in mind, he simply said that "things needed to be changed."

What things might he have intended? We can never be sure – with one notable exception. Near the end of his life, Mr. Armstrong said that our stance on divine healing needed change.

Transformed by Truth, by Joseph Tkach
Chapter 3

Several years ago the famous neurologist Dr. Oliver Sacks wrote a fascinating book titled Awakenings. His book, which later inspired a movie starring Robin Williams, told the remarkable stories of several long-term coma patients who were finally (but not always permanently) coaxed out of their deep slumber by doctors using unorthodox methods. The book is both a celebration of human consciousness and a profound meditation on the mystery of life.

Unique doctrines, legalistic regulations, prophetic speculations, and personality cults seem to blur the central truths of the faith until some Christians act as if they are in a theological fog. God’s light doesn’t seem to be getting through the barriers they have erected.

Introduction to Transformed by Truth

By Joseph Tkach

While I love to read books, this is the first one I have attempted to write. As the president and pastor general of the Worldwide Church of God [now named Grace Communion International], I am writing to tell you a story of God’s grace and the transformation that is taking place in our church. It is a transformation that can be characterized as moving from darkness to the light of God’s truth. That’s right, the Worldwide Church of God—the church, sect, cult, or whatever term is going through your mind, that was founded by Herbert W. Armstrong.
