I figure there may be someone who needs my help, and posting a comment may be easier than emailing me. I would prefer an email, but I am here to help those in need.

**Do you have history in the Worldwide Church of God? Are you still attending one of its offshoots? Do you see cracks in the doctrine and want more information, or do you not know why you're still there anymore? Is there a hole in your heart and just don't know why God isn't granting you the happiness you were promised would come through tithing and following a man? Do you find that no matter how hard you try you cannot live up to your own standards, and you feel like a failure? Do you find your pursuit of God to be based on fear?
Investigate with me the answers to these questions and more!

Side Thoughts

You know what I think is odd?  That the Old Covenant period did not last nearly as long as the New Covenant period has.  I find that odd for some reason.  This is my residual Armstrongism talkin'.

I base my statement on this (probably traditional as opposed to factual) claim from AskMoses.com:
"The Torah was given to the Israelites in the Sinai Desert on the 6th day of Sivan 2448 years after Creation. This corresponds to early summer of the year 1313 BCE."

This means the New Covenant period (~1975 years; from 33AD to 2008) has outlasted the Old Covenant period (~1393 years; from 1313BC to 70AD) by some ~582 years.

Also, check out this is neat little comparison on the Old Covenant and the New Covenant.
