Herbie's Death Almost a Quarter of a Century Ago

The title of this article "Herbie's Death Almost a Quarter of a Century Ago" may be surprising to those unfamiliar with Herbert W Armstrong dying on January 16th 1986. A quarter of a century has passed, and even infamous sexual addict, a.k.a. Garner Ted, also is gone.

The famous baton, with almost apostolic succession ideas, can't be claimed through heredity, but is being claimed in each offshoot as a result of some special doctrine or idea making a certain leader claim divine reason for starting his own "faithful" empire.

In the world of internet marketing they say the money is in the list. In cults the money is in mind control, and the world of Armstrongism has sure had its share of strange events in recent years...

Happy New Year everyone. :-)
