Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

Personal from Herbert W Armstrong - WHY DO some religious people feel that their religious life must be one of giving, up all the fun and enjoyment of living - that in order to please God, they must endure a life of morbid gloom? For that matter, why do some NON-religious people feel, that to become a, Christian would mean a life of living painful penance? As a boy I was brought up in a respectable Protestant church, of traditional Christianity. I never did know very much, as a boy, about what the church believed - but I did know that it regarded sin as violating, their many DON'TS: - don't smoke, don't dance, don't play cards, don't go to the theater, don't drink a drop of wine, don't do this, don't do that!
