This World Tomorrow broadcast (along with many others) was found at www.getbackontrack.org. This particular broadcast begins: "… Now, my friends, once again, why is it that we have not heard the gospel of Jesus Christ, but a gospel of men about this person? Now we've been going though the New Testament to see what gospel Jesus did preach, what He taught His disciples, and the customs that He practiced. We have just seen during the past week how Jesus was sending His students -- His learners (because the word disciple means a student or a learner) -- out on a practice preaching mission." (3.3 Mb)

Bible Study
by Mr Armstrong
Philippians 1 & 2
given 30 October 1981 - played in Wales UK 15 May 2004
This bible study was given when God was putting the Church back on track through Mr Armstrong. He asks the question, "In how many really is the Holy Spirit really working? How many of you are being led by the Holy Spirit? And sometimes I think it is not half, and sometimes I wonder if it is any!" How profound this statement is when viewed today - having witnessed the falling away that took place following his death! However, there is also encouragement - because he points out that he, as Paul, was "sure that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ." Certainly, this must also continue to be our view today. (10.5 Mb)

News Analysis
by Jon Bowles

given Wales UK 1 May 2004
This news analysis deals specifically with the monumental event in Europe today - Saturday 1st May 2004 - the addition of 10 new member states, primarily from eastern europe. This makes the EU the biggest political union and commercial market in the present world, with over 455 million people - and is forcing an axial change in its structure. Two articles from 1988 newspapers are read, in which the Pope addressed the EC (as it was then) and encouraged them along the road we are witnessing today - an emerging political power growing from the ancient roots of the Holy Roman Empire. (4.8 Mb)

This is the first 1hour 25 mins of a bible study - where Mr Armstrong reviews 1st Corinthians - just before continuing with 2Cor 8. In it he says the following: "Now, if you go back and think - those men who went out from us were thinking carnally. They didn't have minds that went to the very depths of the spiritual knowledge of the Bible. I'm not sure that every one of them is gone yet. Some of them were very straight doctrinally. You can be straight doctrinally and still have a material, carnal mind. Did you know that?" View transcript (10.6 Mb)

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
