Ahn Sahng Hong Vs. Scripture
The World Mission Society Church of God claims that a Korean man named Ahn Sahng Hong was the reincarnation of Jesus Christ (incidentally this is the same claim the Unification Church makes about their Korean founder named Sun Myung Moon).
Ahn Sahng Hong wrote several books. In them, he makes a number of claims. What is striking is that he never outwardly claimed to be Jesus Christ (interestingly, he even predicted the return of Jesus Christ). Moreover, he quotes the Bible, but actually quotes it incorrectly. The table below cites a few examples of Ahn Sahng Hong saying the Bible says one thing, when it actually says another. These are not mere differences in interpretation. These are blatant errors. We should ask ourselves “if Jesus Christ returned would He misquote the Bible?”
2 Timothy 2:15 tells us to be a worker who “correctly handles the word of truth.” How has Ahn Sahng Hong mishandled God’s word? Let us look at just a few examples from his works.
