The Liberal Issues
Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong outlined seven doctrinal areas in which God's Church had to be put back on track. He wrote,
"These liberals wanted complete freedom in the Church for divorce and remarriage at will. Other questions raised by the liberals were complete freedom for any type marriage, some more and some less freedom from tithing, doing away with or modifying Church teachings on healing by direct prayer as in James 5:14, complete freedom for women in facial makeup, and even the approval of celebrating birthdays (never approved in the Bible) and even of voting in elections as part of the world."

The doctrinal areas mentioned above are:
1) divorce and remarriage
2) any type marriage
GOD'S CHURCH WILL MAKE HERSELF READY
"Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready."
"Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment."
(I Corinthians 1:10)
"Having the ATTITUDE of the 'SPIRIT OF THE LAW' is the attitude of the mind of CHRIST!" What is a Liberal?
