WCG’s Tkach: Jesus is the Lamb

TRANSFORMED FROM TRUTHWorldwide Church of God Transformed from Truth to Fairy Tales 


In his latest “Speaking of Life” announcement, WCG’s J. Tkach teaches:

When God led Israel out of slavery in Egypt, he gave them the worship practice of sacrificing lambs. Before the first Passover, they were instructed to

“take some of the blood and put it on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the houses where they eat the lambs” (Exodus 12:7 NIV).

The blood became a sign for Israel to remember that the death angel passed over their houses and did not invoke a death penalty of the firstborn in each house…

In the New Testament the theme about lambs and sin continues. The apostle John records that when John the Baptist saw Jesus coming toward the Jordan River, he said,

Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29 NIV). Jesus was the perfect sacrifice, and when he died and rose for all human sin…

Jesus is not only the Creator and Judge of all things, he is also the sacrificial Lamb who takes the sins of the world upon himself and forgives them all. He is what the law always pointed to, but could never accomplish in itself. He is both the Creator and the Redeemer of his Universe. I encourage you to live in the redemption he has given us!

It is true that Jesus is the Lamb of God.  However, it is also true that Jesus set an example for us and observed the Christian Passover–He also told His followers to do this (Luke 22:15-19).

Sadly, J. Tkach and the Worldwide Church of God, although they quote some aspects of the Bible, in order to accept traditions of men, they have been transformed from the biblical truths to the point that they endorse Easter, a fertility holiday named after a pagan goddess.

Of course, you do not have to.  You can avoid pagan holidays and observe the biblical ones, such as Passover.  The holidays based upon the traditions of men simply do not properly explain God’s plan of salvation.

But the biblical holy days do.  Will you obey God or the traditions of men?
