What was Christ understood to be in the first and second century Church?

The Great Angel that gave the Law to Moses (cf. Justin Martyr).

Did the Early Church pray to the saints?

No. They were known as dead and themselves awaiting the resurrection.

When did the Jewish (Hillel) calendar come into being?

In 344 CE two rabbis introduced the Babylonian system and in 358 CE rabbi Hillel made it the official Jewish calendar. It was amended until the 12th century CE.

Does the Hillel calendar have anything to do with the Temple Calendar?

Other than the use of similar names for things it bears no resemblance to the Temple calendar, which was based on the conjunction nearest the Northern Vernal Equinox. It almost never keeps the Holy Days on the right days or even the right months in the majority of years.

If you follow the Jewish calendar are you keeping God’s Laws?

No, as the days He says to keep holy are not kept holy. Other days are substituted by man-made rules.

Is the Samaritan calendar the same as the Temple calendar?

No. Whilst it uses the conjunction system it commences with the New Moon after the Equinox and thus a great deal of the time has the Feast in the Eighth month for which God punished Israel under Jeroboam and later.

When did the Churches of God begin to keep the wrong calendar?

In the twentieth century under Herbert Armstrong ca. 1942.

When did Binitarianism come into effect?

In the Catholic Church from the Council of Nicaea in 325 CE.

When did Trinitarianism come into being?

It was invented by the Cappadocians and adopted by the Council of Constantinople in 381 CE.

What was the original doctrine of the Church?

The Church, the Bible and rational Theism are Unitarian. All other elements are not true Christianity.

When did Ditheism come into the Church?

It was invented by the Radio Church of God to appeal to some of its Trinitarian converts, while other elements remained biblically Unitarian. These Ditheist elements are now in offshoots of the Worldwide Church of God such as UCG, LCG, PCG and many others.



This list is a start for the Brethren.


Those of you in the various Churches of God that have beliefs contrary to these tenets are wrong and need to repent.
