Dear Brethren, This evening, I am sending out a selected portion of Mr. Armstrong’s booklet, “What do you mean – THE UNPARDONABLE SIN?” Please have a good night’s rest everyone. Your Brother in Christ, Gary Liebold “What do you mean – "THE UNPARDONABLE SIN"? by Herbert W. Armstrong Jesus says "I am the Vine, and my Father is the Husband man" -- that is, the owner and cultivator of the vineyard ( ...
Dear Brethren, Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread are quickly approaching. Sometimes, God’s people will experience an even greater number of trials during this time of year. Satan the Devil would love to discourage us to the point of not taking the Passover, or at very least to observe it in an “unworthy manner” (I Corinthians 11:27-29). God’s Holy Day plan reveals real hope for us and for ...
Dear Brethren, What is the Bible definition of SIN? Does God DEFINE sin, or is sin some nebulous idea based upon one person’s views over another’s? After all, don’t certain people believe that DANCING is sinful? On the other hand, others would say that dancing is not sinful at all. So, just what is sin? Early on, as God was preparing Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong for the ministry, he was faced with ...
Dear Brethren, I will begin tonight’s letter with a few paragraphs from the booklet What do you mean -- "THE UNPARDONABLE SIN?”, written by Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong. In spiritual salvation, the blood of Christ -- the death of Christ -- paid the penalty we have incurred in our stead. And it SAVES US from this destruction (which is the second death) -- that is, PREVENTS US from having to pay it -- ...
Dear Brethren, I will start tonight’s letter with Christ’s words to His disciples about prayer. [6] But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. [7] And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for ...
Dear Brethren, Have you ever experienced stress in your life? Of course, you have. There isn’t a person alive who hasn’t. The bigger question is just how well do you react to stress? Do you become so overwhelmed that you become somewhat depressed? Do you let anger get the best of you? It can be incredibly stressful when a person has serious health problems, financial worries, or marital ...
Dear Brethren, I received an e-mail a few years ago from one of our Church Members. It was very stirring and thought-provoking. This person’s inspiring words show some excellent insight. Though this member died in the faith several months ago, her words (as well as herself), will never be forgotten. Tonight, I am sharing one of her written paragraphs with you. I have been going through the ...
Dear Brethren, Earlier this evening, I was listening to an “advertisement” on television where the announcer asked the question, “What is happening in America?” As the man spoke, pictures of riots, upheaval, and even military soldiers were shown. Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong gave a warning to this world of what lies ahead for the nations. "Cry aloud, spare not; Lift up your voice like a trumpet; Tell ...
Dear Brethren, In today’s world we see tremendous upheaval all over this earth. We are living in times virtually unprecedented in our generation. Through it all, keep your focus on seeking the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, first and foremost (Matthew 6:33). In 2010, a young runner in California ran in a cross-country race. She had become severely dehydrated, falling to the ground just ...
Dear Brethren, Tonight, we had the opportunity of having a wonderful meal with one of our Church brethren on video cam. Even though my wife and I live in Florida and the other member lives in California, it was just like we were eating at the same table together. It was such a great way to begin the Sabbath and we look forward to having a meal with others of you in the Church, in the future. ...
Dear Brethren, Mr. Armstrong wrote the following about “righteous character” in his book, The Incredible Human Potential (page 38). Perfect, holy and righteous character is the ability in such separate entity to come to discern the true and right way from the false, to make voluntarily a full and unconditional surrender to God and His perfect way -- to yield ...
Dear Brethren, Last week I sent out a Brethren Letter addressed to married men that I had written in 2010. This week, I am resending the second part of that series as I addressed our married women in the Church. Please have wonderful Sabbath! Your Brother in Christ, Gary Liebold November 5, 2010 Dear Brethren, Considering last week’s Bible study on the subject of “marriage”, I’ve decided to ...
Dear Brethren, Since I have recently given a series of sermons on the subject of “marriage,” I thought I would also resend two letters I had written on the same subject back in 2010. Tonight, once again, here is the “brethren letter” addressing men. Next week, I plan to send the other letter in which I addressed women. Please have a good night’s rest. Your Brother in Christ, Gary Liebold December ...
