Who or what is the key to understanding the bible?? Jesus says that the bible is about Him. Davis C. Pack of the so-called Restored Church of God and all of the other leaders of the various splinter groups who formerly composed the Worldwide Church of God, say the knowing the Identity of the United States and Britain is the key to understanding the bible. Jesus is God manifested in the flesh. David C. Pack and the others who agree with him are mere men following Herbert W. Armstrong who is another mere men who adopted the false doctrine of British Israelism which says that the United States and Britain are the lost ten tribes of Israel. This doctrine became popular in the mid to late 1800′s (before Herbert W. Armstrong started the Worldwide Church of God ! !) and had largely died out by the mid twentieth century. Armstrong adopted this doctrine for the Worldwide Church of God, the church he started, and made it the central teaching upon which other false teachings were based or related to.
Soooo, hmmmm, should we believe Jesus (God in the flesh, the King of Kings, &c . . .), or should we believe Herbert W. Armstrong, David C. Pack, and the other teachers of this false doctrine? It’s a no-brainer. We should believe Jesus. Sadly though, many in the various splinter groups of the former Worldwide Church of God still adhere to this false doctrine. Pray for them. It should be noted that the former Worldwide Church of God has denounced this false doctrine along with all of the other false doctrines that they once adhered to.
Stay tuned for more on this subject.
