Additional Information補充資料

The article above was written around 1990.這篇文章上面寫有1990年左右。 Armstrong had died in 1986, and Joseph Tkach, Sr., then led the Church.阿姆斯特朗已經死亡,在1986年,約瑟夫tkach ,據稱,然後帶領教會。 In the succeeding years, the core Church has initiated a great number of changes, particularly in a number of its core beliefs.在此後的年份裡,其核心教會發起了一個很大的數目的變化,特別是在它的一些核心理念。 For this reason, Armstrong's original Church (since 1968 called the Worldwide Church of God) has separated itself from the beliefs of Armstrongism.為此,阿姆斯特朗的原教會(自1968年以來,被稱為世界各地教會的神)已脫離從信仰armstrongism 。 The two must now be considered separate entities.兩國現在必須考慮單獨的實體。

Armstrongism Now現在armstrongism

Armstrongism still endures in a wide and varied assortment of splinter groups that have broken off of the core Church over the years. armstrongism仍持續在廣泛和多樣組合的分裂集團,已中斷的核心教會多年來。 Two of the largest of these are Garner Ted Armstrong's Church of God International (1978) and the United Church of God (1995).兩個最大的,這些都是拉住泰德阿姆斯壯神的教會國際( 1978 )及美國教會的神( 1995年) 。

Most traditional Christians consider Armstrongism to be a cult.最傳統的基督徒考慮armstrongism是一個邪教。 The reliance on a modern person to be a source of Prophetic insight (which Armstrong never actually claimed), the "triple tithe" (10% for regular giving; 10% for benevolent support; and 10% for an annual Feast), very rigid Sabbath-keeping attitudes, and an insularity from all other Christian Churches and organizations which are considered Satan-driven, are some of the reasons for this common opinion that Armstrongism is not truly Christian.依靠現代的人的一個根源先知性的洞察力(即阿姆斯特朗從未真正聲稱) , "三重什一稅" ( 10 % ,定期給予10 %為仁政支持;和10 % ,為年度盛宴) ,十分堅硬安息日保存的態度,以及一個島國,從所有其他基督信仰教會和組織被認為是撒旦驅動的,是一些原因,為這一共同認為armstrongism是不是真正的基督徒。 In addition, Armstrong believed that there was not just one God but two, he did not believe in the Trinity, and he believed that all Church members will some day attain Godhood are similarly considered non-Christian.此外,阿姆斯壯認為,現在還沒有一個上帝,但兩個,他不認為在三一,他相信所有教會成員,將有一天達到godhood正考慮以類似的非基督徒。 Many controlling attitudes toward behavior are also part of Armstrongism beliefs, specifying lengths of hair, styles of clothing, etc., no holiday celebrations, no divorce, no smoking許多控制態度,行為也有一部分armstrongism信仰,指明長度的頭髮,風格的衣服等,沒有節慶文化,並沒有離婚的,無吸煙

The Worldwide Church of God Now世界各地教會的神現

The core Church, the Worldwide Church of God, came to realize that many of Armstrong's teachings and beliefs were not Biblical.核心教會中,世界上神的教會,來實現很多阿姆斯特朗的教義和信仰的人不是聖經。 As a result, beginning in early 1995, those beliefs were rejected and more orthodox Christian beliefs accepted in their place.因此,一開始,在1995年初,這些信仰被拒絕,並更加正統基督教信仰,接受在自己的位置。 Strict examination of every aspect of belief and practice has been instituted, for compatibility with Scripture.嚴格審查每一個方面的信仰和實踐已經建立,為配合經文。 As a result, many long-held, central beliefs have been reversed.因此,許多長期持有,中央信念得到扭轉。 The Worldwide Church of God has now entered a path much closer to true Christianity.世界各地神的教會已經進入一個路徑更接近於真正的基督教。 The regular reference to it as a cult has disappeared and it is now generally considered on a path to become a solid Protestant Christian Church.經常提到它定性為邪教,已經消失了,這是目前被普遍認為是對的道路,成為了堅實的基督教新教教會。

These changes in teachings have been enormous.這些變化,在教義已非常龐大。 The almost entire reversal of position on a number of core beliefs and practices has seriously shaken the Church.幾乎整個逆轉的立場,就一些核心理念和做法,已嚴重動搖了教會。 Many pastors and members have left as a result, often to form or join a splinter Armstrongism group.許多牧師和成員已離開因此,往往組建或加入的一個分支armstrongism組。 Where membership had been 145,000 worldwide (89,000 in the US) during the late 1980s, these numerous departures have resulted in a current Church of around half that size, around 75,000 worldwide (49,000 in the US).如果會員已在全世界145 000 ( 89000個在美國)在20世紀80年代末,這些眾多的出發地造成了目前教堂周圍的一半大小,約75000名世界各地( 49000名在美國) 。 These reductions have greatly reduced the Church's income and cash flow, and it seems to be financially struggling now.這些削減已大大減低了教會的收入和現金流,它似乎是在財政上掙扎。

Joseph Tkach has even issued a broad apology on behalf of the Church collectively, regarding past errors in incorrect and misleading teachings.約瑟夫tkach甚至發表了一份廣泛的道歉代表教會的集體,對於過去的錯誤,在不正確及具誤導性的教義。 If, in the long run, this Church survives its changes, it will likely represent one of the most striking transformations in the history of Christianity.如果,從長遠來看,這個教會生存及其變化,它可能會代表的一個最引人注目的變革,在歷史上的基督教。
