For nearly a generation now, the Church of God has reeled
from catastrophic changes within the Church itself. These
changes have utterly dissipated the power of God’s people.
Over seventy years ago, the Church of God recognized
two vital doctrines as absolutes—the doctrine regarding
divorce and remarriage (that marriage is irrevocable—
once a marriage is bound by God—it is bound for life),
and the time of observance for Pentecost—namely that
Pentecost always occurs on a Monday, and that the count
toward Pentecost begins with the morrow after the
Sabbath that occurs during the Days of Unleavened Bread.
One might ask; “how could a doctrine or a day have any
bearing on the spiritual status of the Church, or in any
way be implicated regarding the fractured and weakened
state that the Church finds itself in today?”
Sadly, for this generation, many have hardly heard of the
early years in the revival of the Church of these last days—
and fewer still have heard or recall the details of what was
once taught, believed, and lived in the true Church of God.
Nor do they understand how or why each doctrinal change
is directly linked to our covenant relationship with Christ.
Read on to gain an overview regarding the first major
doctrinal change to occur within the Church of the last days.
