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.

JUST NOW, as I write, I have been reading a sort of abbreviated editorial-lead article page in one of the mass-circulation weekly magazines. The caption caught my eye instantly. It was about the real PURPOSE for being alive. This is not only the most important - it also is the least understood question in the whole world. Here was the very first page of reading - on the inside front cover - of a magazine with a circulation of many million copies, read by many million people. I wondered. Would the author of this short-short article really know - would the publishers of this magazine be able to TELL their millions of readers - this great TRUTH that almost NOBODY knows? What the average mother would want for her child, he assumed, is "to be happy." But the author viewed "happiness" as a myth - or perhaps what he really meant was that the average concept of happiness is a myth. He described it as "this idiotic thing, 'fun.'"
