RELIGIONS, SECTS AND NEW AGE
Should we read the magazine 'Plain truth'?
This well laid out magazine, which is distributed free of charge at public stalls, is certainly most appealing.
Its content however is questionable and it easily slips into fundamentalism and error. The doctrine it spreads is hardly compatible with the Catholic Church's teaching.
It was in 1934 that Herbert W. Armstrong, an American, published the first issue of the "Plain Truth". As the founder of a new religion, "The Universal Church of God", he preaches the theories of his sect in the magazine supported by generous contributions from his followers.
No, it is not advisable for us Catholics to take the time to read that magazine full of unacceptable religious notions, as for example, strange visions on the end of the world. We have plenty of books and Catholic magazines to nurture our faith.
