Foreword to Transformed by Truth, by Joseph Tkach

The Worldwide Church of God has embarked upon a course virtually uncharted in church history—a course that has taken them from the kingdom of the cults to the kingdom of Christ. In Transformed by Truth, Joseph Tkach, leader of the Worldwide Church of God, candidly describes the movement’s transformation from the perspective of his own personal awakening. During their pilgrimage from cultism to the cross, I have come to know Joseph as both a friend and as a brother in Christ.

“Be shepherds of God's flock that is under your care, serving as overseers--  not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve” (1 Peter 5:2).

A Glimpse of the Journey

The remarkable transformation of the Worldwide Church of God [now named Grace Communion International] never fails to amaze us. Recognizing it as a God-ordained move, we thank the Lord for the change of heart of the denomination's leaders and members all over the world. Here in this country, WCG remains one of PCEC's faithful partners in the latter's efforts to evangelize the whole Philippines. At the Council's 23rd general assembly last year, the denomination was granted an observer status to give the constituency an opportunity to learn more about the WCG.

Yet the scope and speed of changes since the death of our founder, Herbert W. Armstrong, has confounded both supporters and detractors.

Forgive Us Our Trespasses

The Worldwide Church of God [now named Grace Communion International]...has changed its position on numerous long-held beliefs and practices during the past few years. At the heart of those changes has been an acceptance that salvation is by grace through faith. While this was preached in the past, it was always coupled with the message that God owes us a reward for our works that build holy, righteous character.

In the days when Jesus was born in Bethlehem more than 2,000 years ago, there was a devout old man called Simeon living in Jerusalem. The Holy Spirit had revealed to Simeon that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.

Luke 2:27 tells us that the Spirit led Simeon into the temple courts on the very day that Jesus’ parents brought in the infant Jesus to fulfill the requirements of the law of Moses.

When Simeon saw the baby, he took it in his arms and praised God, saying:

Early in my Christian walk, I found the Christmas season annoying and irritating rather than inspiring and enjoyable. That’s because I believed Christmas was really a pagan holiday masquerading as Christian, and as such, God must hate it. I thought people who call themselves Christian but participate in such pagan revelry must disgust God.
