TRANSFORMED FROM TRUTH
In the May-June issue of Together: Worldwide Church of God News, WCG reported:
New name for WCG online education
We are pleased to make two announcements. Our online graduate program will now be known as Grace Communion Seminary; secondly, we are opening enrollment to WCG members who have bachelor degrees.
The name Grace Communion Seminary (GCS) has been adopted as an appropriate description of the theological content and level of our online graduate program. Ambassador College, a California Corporation, will now be doing business as Grace Communion Seminary…
“Assimilating New People” seminar…
Randy Bloom (a member of the CAD Ministry Development Team)… conducted this workshop for Abundant Grace Fellowship in Ft. Myers, FL…
The truth is that WCG is using the term “grace” a lot these days. However, notice what the NIV teaches about some who did that:
They are godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality (Jude 4, NIV).
And truly, that is what happened to WCG. Those there simply do not understand grace. WCG now teaches license to sin, but they like to use the term grace as a cover.
They really need to study what the Bible really teaches.

Are the Ten Commandment Still in Effect? This article quotes the ten commandments and combines some of the previous articles into one article about the ten commandments. The commandments are shown at Mount Sinai, before Mount Sinai, in the teachings of Jesus, after the crucifixion, and in the teachings of Paul. It addresses the most common “traditions of men” regarding them as well.
