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)

Bible Study
by Mr Armstrong
Review of 1st Corinthians
given 22 November 1980 in Tucson, Played Wales UK 24 April 2004
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)

Introduction
by Jon Bowles
Passover vs The Catholic Mass
given Wales UK 3rd April 2004
This short study was given just before the tape by Mr Armstrong this week. Though comments have been made previously about "The Passion of The Christ" film within the bible study: "Think on THESE Things" (given Wales UK 14 Feb 2004) nothing was mentioned about the Catholic bias of the film. 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)

“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!
