Does your life have real meaning?

What is my destiny? Why do I exist? Is there a reason for my life?

Have you asked these questions? If so, you are not alone - these questions have baffled and confused people through the ages.

A child naturally wonders, "Where did I come from?" As we get older and become uncertain about our future we want to know... "Did my life have a purpose? Is this all there is? What's next...anything?" From the beginning to the end of our lives, we ponder the meaning of life.

Think about your own existence. Can you see a purpose for your own life with its ups and downs, its mixture of joys and sorrows? Do you sense lasting value in its toil, challenges and uncertainties?

Never underestimate the value of your life. From the very beginning, God has planned an incredibe future for you!

Thousands of years ago, the biblical King David looked up into the night sky and wrote down his thoughts regarding man's relationship with his Creator: "When I consider Your heavens, the works of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him?" (Psalm 8:3-8)

King David wondered about the purpose of man just as we do today. Every one us was created for a purpose, but few understand what that great purpose is.

Inside the Bible Study aid, What is Your Destiny?, we will search through the scriptures in the Bible and find out the purpose God has planned personally for you.

Its time you began to understand your real future!

Inside this Bible Study Aid ebook:

"Throughout the ages the overwhelming majority of people have failed to grasp the amazing future God has in store for those who develop a proper relationship with Him."

"That family relationship—our becoming children of God the Father—is the heart and core of God’s incredible plan for humanity!"

"The Bible explains that those inducted into God’s immortal family must first sincerely repent of their sins, be baptized and receive the gift of God’s Spirit (Acts 2:38)."

"Those who overcome will be given responsibility as kings and priests of God in that Kingdom (Revelation 1:5-6)."

HASH(0xa8982b34) out of 5 stars Armstrongite Cult Dec 8 2015
By Robert Sparkman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This publication was produced by a group associated with the teachings of Herbert Armstrong. Groups associated with Armstrongism include Restored Church of God, United Church of God, Philadelphia Church of God, and Living Church of God.

I was a member of an Armstrongite group for over ten years as a young Christian, so I am intimately familiar with their teachings. I am now attending an EFCA (Evangelical Free Churches of America) congregation.

Armstrongites should be considered a cult, and should be avoided. The two major reasons why they should be considered a cult are their “God family” doctrine and their “true church” or exclusivist position.

Their “God family” doctrine teaches that the redeemed become fully God in the resurrection, and will join the Godhead. In other words, there will be no difference between the redeemed, God the Father and Jesus Christ in terms of nature. They deny the personhood of the Holy Spirit.

Salvation, to them, is about proving themselves trustworthy to be given the full powers of Godhood. They are qualifying to rule as a God, ultimately over their own planet. They are Gods in embryonic form, to be "born again" at the resurrection. This view is very similar to Mormonism.

They deny the Christian doctrine of the Trinity, declaring it to be pagan. The reality is that their view is polytheistic, and thus pagan, as they assert that there are two separate god beings, God the Father and Jesus Christ. It is also a blasphemous view, as God is unique, uncreated, and alone worthy of worship. Claiming that the redeemed will join the Godhead is blasphemous. The redeemed reflect the character of God like a mirror reflects light, but they will never be the Light; only a mirror.

It is true that the redeemed are adopted children of God, but they turn this adoption into something that it is not.

Christianity teaches that God is one in terms of essence or being, and three in terms of Person. Armstrongism teaches that God is one in terms of family, and two in terms of Person. I suggest reading the book “Forgotten Trinity” by James White to understand the biblical nature of the Trinity doctrine, and to understand the problem with the “God Family” doctrine.

Armstrongites also claim their beliefs are true Christianity, and that the rest of Christianity is a “counterfeit Christianity” teaching a “false gospel” and that those outside of their organizations are unsaved and spiritually blind. They claim that other Christian leaders are “ministers of Satan”.

Their views, like the views of other cults, come from a conspiracy theory view of church history, mainly with the Roman Empire and the Roman Catholic church as the villains in their story.

Like most other cults, their leader Herbert Armstrong, claimed that God raised him up to restore true Christianity. He was a very contentious man. Following in his footsteps, modern-day Armstrongite teachers have a similarly contemptuous attitude toward other Christians and proclaim themselves to be the authorities on Scripture. In-house, they refer to their belief system as “the Truth” just like many cults do.
While their teachings sound biblical at a surface level, if you compare them with evangelical Christian doctrine, their distortion of Scripture is apparent. Their belief system largely rests upon taking Scriptures out of context, implying false contexts, unsound hermeneutics, and a faulty understanding of church history. While accusing others of taking things out of context and being wolves, they are the ones who are doing these very things. I have little doubt that most of them are deceived and don’t know that they themselves are practicing the things that they accuse others of doing, but false doctrine is false doctrine, regardless if they are deceived or not.

I would highly suggest avoiding them, and considering a sound, evangelical church such as EFCA (Evangelical Churches of America), CMA (Christian and Missionary Alliance) or a church associated with 9marks ministry. Each of these organizations has church finders online.

HASH(0xa85915ac) out of 5 stars God's Purpose for Mankind Feb. 26 2012
By WQM3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
What Is Your Destiny is a encouraging book that clearly explains the intended destiny of mankind according to the Bible. The language is clear and easy to read. The text refers you to the Bible as its source of information. This book tells and explains to the seeker promises and considerations many are unaware of or don't fully understand. Once you have read it you will truly understand one of the many blessings God intends for us to have. As a Evangelist and Elder (minister) it has blessed me.

HASH(0xa87c6b58) out of 5 stars Avoid like the plague. Teaches that man can become god. April 16 2012
By alank-47 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This bizarre emergent church pamphlet has a lot of leaven hidden in the dough of this book. They lead the reader to believe that Christ came to make us divine like him, while denying the trinity.

The United Church of God, a splinter group from the Worldwide Church of God megacult, which was founded by cult leader Herbert W. Armstrong, is not your typical Christian church, something that's clearly exhibited in this book, which is a complete rejection of Trinitarianism.

UCG, while wearing a Christian mantle, has beliefs closer to that of Judiasm but with some Jehovah's Witness and Mormonism thrown in for good measure. The church rejects the Holy Spirit as part of the godhead, quite erroneously. This is only one of their unorthodox beliefs.

For those seeking a truly Christian message, this is not the place to go. Be wary when reading this booklet, because it's misleading and demonstrates a lack of Biblical understanding and scholarship. Certainly, people should check it out if they're curious, but it's advisable to do so with eyes wide open and after having done some outside research on this church.
