Ronald Weinland Followed Tkach’s WCG



The 50 Truths of God publication that CGPFK’s Ronald Weinland posted contains the following:

God restored the following 18 truths to His church through Herbert W. Armstrong during the Philadelphia Era. These truths that are foundational to God’s Church also served to reveal that Herbert W. Armstrong was the prophesied end-time Elijah, whom God said He would send before the return of Jesus Christ. God did send Mr. Armstrong to His Church to restore “all things” that the Church had lost by the closing age of Sardis — truths needed for salvation and preparation for the return of Jesus Christ.

Well, there are several problems with that.

And one of them is that instead of doing his own research to determine what those restored truths were, instead (like many others), Ronald Weinland relies on the listing from the Tkach WCG administration for the 18 (see The 18 Restored Truths: Do You Know What the First Changes the Tkach Administration Made?).

Thus, he does not even know what the 18 truths that God used Herbert W. Armstrong to restore to the Church are (for details on what they really were, please see the article The 18 Restored Truths: Do You Know What the First Changes the Tkach Administration Made?).  Why he followed the Tkach WCG list is not clear.

Now another problem (where this time he did not follow the Tkach’s) is that not only does he assert that Herbert W. Armstrong was the Elijah to come (see also The Elijah Heresies), he takes it a step further and claims that Herbert W. Armstrong restored all things.

If that is true, then why would Ronald Weinland feel that it is necessary to add another 29 “truths” to the list?  (The “50” include 3 Ronald Weinland claims the Sardis Church Era had, the 18 from Herbert W. Armstrong and CGPFK’s Ronald Weinland 29 additions.)

The fact is that no matter how much lip service that Ronald Weinland may make about Herbert W. Armstrong, the reality is that Ronald Weinland changed certain beliefs that Herbert W. Armstrong held and holds to many positions that the late Herbert W. Armstrong never would have supported (such as unitarianism, see also Was Unitarianism the Teaching of the Bible or Early Church? ).

Ronald Weinland is not only not one of the two witnesses that he claims that he is, he continues to distort the legacy of Herbert W. Armstrong by his writings and false claims.

Several articles of possibly related interest include:

The 18 Restored Truths: Do You Know What the First Changes the Tkach Administration Made? Some have said healing, others other subjects, but probably the first change had to do with eliminating being part of the Philadelphia era. This article documents what those changes were and compares the Tkach list of restored truths to Herbert W. Armstrong’s list of restored truths. It contains many quotes from Herbert W. Armstrong.
Who Was Herbert W. Armstrong? How is He Viewed Today? Includes quotes from the 1973 edition of The Autobiography of Herbert W. Armstrong and explains how he is and should be viewed today.
The Elijah Heresies Does the Bible teach that there will be a future Elijah? Must it be Herbert W. Armstrong?
Who Are The Two Witnesses? What is their job? What does the Bible reveal? What has the Church of God taught on this subject? Might even Roman Catholic prophecies give some clues here?
Concerns About Ronald Weinland’s Church of God-Preparing for the Kingdom of God Ronald Weinland falsely claims to be one of the two witnesses God is raising up and that the end will come in 2008. Is he a false prophet? He has at least one other view that suggests that he is not part of the COG.
Should the Church Still Try to Place its Top Priority on Proclaiming the Gospel or Did Herbert W. Armstrong Change that Priority for the Work? So me say the Church should mainly feed the flock now as that is what Herbert W. Armstrong reportedly said. Is that what he said? Is that what the Bible says? What did Paul and Herbert W. Armstrong expect from evangelists?
Here are Some Quotes from Herbert W. Armstrong on Laodicea and Holding to Doctrine.
There are Many COGs: Why Support the Living Church of God? This is an article for those who wish to easily sort out the different COGs. It really should be a MUST READ for current and former WCG members or any interested in supporting the faithful church. It also explains a lot of what the COGs are all about.
