|The Autobiography of Herbert W Armstrong
SHOULD the story of. my life be published? Would this be right? For years I felt it would not. I said, "God has called me to preach His Gospel, not to talk about myself." I even refused, for several years, to let anyone take my picture. Finally a radio listener changed my mind. He wrote that he had a right to know what the minister he listened to looked like, and something about the man. "When you attend church or an evangelistic meeting," he said, "what would you think of the minister if he hid behind the pulpit and let you hear his voice only? Wouldn't you be suspicious he had something to hide? Wouldn't you distrust such a man? When Jesus preached to 5,000 people, and other crowds, did He hide Himself? Did Peter hide his face when he preached - did Paul? WHY SHOULD YOU?" The examples of Jesus, Peter and Paul settled the question. Since my hearers cannot see my face over radio, I have not been averse, since that listener's letter, to having my picture published occasionally - when it serves a purpose beneficial to the readers.
