WHY GOD IS NOT REAL to Most People
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.

Millions who claim to believe in God would be shocked if they knew the actual SOURCE of their belief and practice. I wonder if you are like the person who said to me: "I believe in God, but it seems like God is so far off - so UNREAL!" WHY do most people feel this way? Then again, I have often wondered how it can be that so many have heard me explain the Message GOD sent to mankind by Jesus Christ, just as it is plainly recorded that Christ taught it, and yet have said afterward: "I surely enjoyed that. I never heard anything like that before, but it certainly makes sense" - and yet, even tho they heard it, understood it, even expressed that it was the most logical and self-evident true explanation of life and its purpose and truth they have ever heard - in spite of this, knowing it is the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ, yet they evidence not the slightest indication that this true Message from God is of any concern to them, personally - or that it has any connection with them, individually! WHY is this?
