Original Christianity Before Organized Religion

WORLDWIDE CHURCH of GOD

This section is for the benefit of those who may have formerly been a member of the Worldwide Church of God (WCG - now called Grace Communion International) - or who may still be a member. While we don't like to dwell on the past and certainly have nothing against the (former) WCG, for many people this experience was the prelude to their graduation to knowledge of ASK. If nothing else, this section is a nostalgic trip down memory lane. Be sure to read the article, Who Is ELM?

Who Is ELM?

A Message for Members and Ex-members of WCG Splinter Groups

and Members and Ex-members of the Worldwide Church of God

 and Grace Communion International

It has been almost four decades since the late Dr. Ernest L. Martin resigned as one of the WCG's highest ranking and most respected ministers. Dr. Martin was one of the first to do the right thing and quietly resigned when it became obvious that change was not part of the WCG paradigm.

What has become increasingly obvious is the fact that most people associated with the above mentioned groups have little or no knowledge of Dr. Martin. If ever God was working with an individual in our time, it was Dr. Martin. No other ex-WCG minister has ever achieved the worldwide respect for his independent research that Dr. Martin was so famous for. 

It is time for all to turn off the 'ongoing ex-WCG soap operas' and find out what the Bible really says about all of the truly important doctrinal issues:

  1. There is no "true Church of God". In fact, the word "church" is not even mentioned in the original Bible translations.

  2. There was no hierarchy (or organization) in the early Christian ekklesia (a gathering of like minded people). 

  3. Yes, the Sabbath is on Saturday. And no, you are not required to keep it (or any of the Holy Days).

  4. The tithing issue was put to bed four decades ago - by Dr. Martin. Christian charity, however, is still waiting to be practiced by most professing Christians.

  5. You have already been saved. Being a member of any of the above churches means nothing to God. You were saved before the foundation of the world.

  6. You do, however, have one very important decision to make in this life. And that is whether you desire to be in the Kingdom of God and the first resurrection, or whether you chose to be in the second resurrection as most people will be.

  7. Jesus was born on September 11, 3 B.C.E. All planetariums agree.

  8. The Temple Mount is located one third of a mile from the Wailing Wall. The Tomb of David is buried underneath.

  9. We are not in the end-times. We are not even close to the end-times. Maybe sometime around 2070?

  10. Your experience in the WCG was for a reason. Wise people will learn from it.

The work of Dr. Martin is well preserved and is still available to the world through the Associates for Scriptural Knowledge (ASK). The totality of his research is available on their website and is the equivalent of a college education. And it is all free!

You only have so many years in this life time. Why not take advantage of God's inspired knowledge before it is too late? Now is the time to wake up!
