Mr. Armstrong regularly said, "Don't believe me -- believe your Bible!" He realized the
possibility always existed that he could be wrong. He knew the Bible would always hold
the truth of God. Mr. Armstrong changed his stance on doctrines several times during his
lifetime based on new revelations of what at the time seemed to be truth. We have to
realize that truth will not go away. Truth will stand until God reveals Himself in the
return of our Master and Savior Jesus Christ, who is the Truth. The question is, "Will we
embrace truth when it is revealed to us?"
Mr. Armstrong's policy was to always reveal the meaning of unclear Scriptures in the
light of clear Scriptures. However, in the case of Passover, there were many unclear
Scriptures! The Scriptures were unclear all over! The Scriptures of the New Testament
surrounding Christ's Last Supper had their problems, and the Old Testament Scriptures
were not clear as to "between the two evenings" for just one example. It would have
been easy for anyone to make a decision that would later prove to be incorrect. Mr.
Armstrong did the best he could at the time. He was searching for the way of God. He
opened many new avenues of understanding. After his work became large, Mr.
Armstrong had little time for detailed analysis of each doctrine – perhaps it would be
better to say re-analysis. However, we have shown more than mere evidence the correct
understanding of “between the evenings”. We have shown the correct departure time for
the children of Israel from Egypt – the daylight portion of the 15th of Nisan – very
probably the morning part of the day. While it is possible, that Mr. Armstrong would not
find time to agree, were he alive today, he would continue to admonish us, "Believe your
Romans 3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest
be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
