Sermon
by Mr Armstrong
Passover Examination
given 4th March 1982 (played Wales UK 12th April 2003
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)

Mr Armstrong gave this sermon as part of the process of getting the Church back on Track in the early 80s. He stresses the vast difference between the natural and Spirit led mind.

“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!
