- Heaven and Hell: What Does the Bible Really Teach?
on July 18, 2011
This book is a collection of arguments by a group that likes to pick and choose "proof texts" from the Bible; in other words, they take short verses that appear to support what they want you to believe, and quote them out of context, or incompletely. This same group also believes in "British Isrealism" (the belief that white, Western, and especially English-speaking people are the true decendants of the "lost tribes of Israel") and deny the Trinity. Their founder, Herbert W. Armstrong, fails the test of a true prophet, several times over. Specific examples are: 1939: Predicting that WWII would end in the return of Christ (in a publication called "The Plain Truth," and in 1956, predicting that by 1975 the world would end in WWIII, after the destruction of the USA and Great Britan (in a pamphlet titled, "1975 in Prophecy!" Google these folks, The United Church of God, before you bother reading their stuff.
