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 - FIRST of all, this month, let me explain an error in this column in the March number. I wrote about the new 5c postage rate for first class mail. But in the rush of multiple and heavy responsibilities, I jumped the gun and got considerably ahead of Congress and the Post Office Department. And now I know that several people, at least, are reading this personal talk from me in The Plain Truth. What a storm of criticism, protest, indignation and accusation it blew up! I wonder how many today assume that a called Minister of God is a species entirely different than human? I was like that, once. If you've been reading the Autobiography, you know that I was born of good and sincere Quaker parents. As a growing boy being taken to Sunday School and Church I remember that our Pastor was entirely different from the rest of us. We were human. Frequently he reminded us that we were sinners, consigned to hell unless we accepted Christ. But our Pastor was neither human nor a sinner. He was God's representative, and as such, he was a special type of sanctified species somewhere between human and divine.
