Sermon
by Jon Bowles
Why 2nd Timothy?
given Bristol UK (UB-2 12 April 2004
This Sermon examines 2nd Timothy, and asks why it was originally written. The answer gives much more meaning to the aspects that were preserved for us "in the last days" (2Tim 3:1). When we understand why Timothy needed encouragement at that time - we too should be encouraged in the spiritual battles we have to fight today. (9.3 Mb)

Introduction
by Jon Bowles
Passover vs The Catholic Mass

This short study was given just before the tape by Mr Armstrong this week.

This short talk explains the enormous difference between the Catholic Mass and the Passover, and how the movie can only have Catholic input, in regard to this area, not the Truth. (4.3 Mb)

Sermon
by Jon Bowles
Our Attitude Toward Government
given Bristol UK 13th March 2004
This sermon draws a parallel between a spacecraft approaching a re-entry window in the atmosphere, and ourselves being drawn toward the coming Kingdom (Government) of God. Both have to have a particular "attitude" or approach to their entry. Too steep - and they burn, too shallow and they bounce. That window is even narrower for us - yet for a space craft it is just the thickness of a piece of paper on the size of a basketball! Is our own individual "attitude" - our approach - towards God's Kingdom and Government yet as it should be? (10.2 Mb)

Sermon
by Mr Armstrong
Passover Examination
given 4th March 1982 - Played Wales UK 6th March 2004
Mr Armstrong gave this sermon during the time he was putting the Church back on Track, and it encourages us all to correctly examine ourselves prior to Passover. He talks about the bread for our healing, and the wine for forgiveness of spiritual sin, and then goes on to show how the area we all need to examine prior to taking the Passover, is our level of true repentance. He points out that even some evangelists had not at that time truly repented -- but merely accepted the truth as part of their own righteousness. View transcript (10.9 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!
