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.
