Must God's Ministers Be Ordained by the Hand of Man?
Herbert W Armstrong   
Church of God

Born: July 31, 1892
Died: January 16, 1986
Member Since: 1928
Ordained: 1931
Office: Apostle

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.

Now can you know who are the true called ministers of God? Does God ordain them privately and direct - is it contrary to God's order to ordain by the hand of man? IT'S VITAL that you know how God confers the authority of office in His Church. Jesus conferred upon His called ministers of His Church the keys of the Kingdom of God. He vested them with authority to guide His Church, and carry on His work, through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. But how can you know who carries this authority? HOW are those upon whom it is conferred ordained to office? HOW can you recognize the one and only true Church of God - the very Church Jesus said He would build - HIS BODY, thru whom the Spirit of God today carries on the work of God? Was the Apostle Paul Ordained by Man? How was the Apostle Paul ordained to his office of authority? Did God ordain him privately - secretly - without any human witnesses to the fact, or was he ordained by the hand of man?
