Family and friends of current World Mission Society Church of God members that we speak with, often can not understand the member’s involvement with the organization, much less why it is so difficult for the member to leave even after being made aware of various contradictions in the group’s doctrine, activities, and leadership.  So why is it so hard for […]

The World Mission Society Church of God members that I have spoken to, all claim that the “end of the world is coming soon”.  So I ask them, “when?”.  Usually get really vague answers like “really soon“, “the disasters are the signs of the end“, or “maybe even this year“.  I recently heard from a WMSCOG member in the Seattle, […]

The World Mission Society Church of God: Religious Freedom or Religious Fraud?

21 on June 29, 2011, 9:30 PM / in Controversial Points, Non Thought, Thought Reform

The United States Constitution affords all citizens the freedom to exercise the religion of their choosing.  But when does a controversial religious organization such as the World Mission Society Church of God, cross the line from exercising the freedom of religion to committing religious fraud?  Do potential members of the WMSCOG have enough information about the WMSCOG when they decide to join?  […]

Speaking With WMSCOG Members – “Do you believe the Bible?”

13 on June 14, 2011, 7:44 PM / in Bible Studies, Controversial Points, Non Thought, Thought Reform

I was inspired to write this article because of the overwhelming number of times I am asked this question when discussing World Mission Society Church Of God doctrine.  It is always the same.  If you ask a WMSCOG member a critical question or point out a contradiction in their doctrine, Ahnsahnghong, Zhang Gil Jah, etc., they answer with the question, “Do […]

“Boast About God”–Is God’s Grace Free?

I recently started reading the book entitled “Boast About God” by Joo Cheol Kim, World Mission Society Church Of God general pastor.  In Chapter 3, The Mission of Watchmen and Signs of the Present Time, Kim explains that frequently occurring natural disasters are signs that the world will be laid waste soon.  Kim asserts that the only place people can flee to […]
