Persecution Complex: Proof Of The Lord’s Anointed Or Valid Criticism

1 on December 12, 2011, 12:17 AM / in Non Thought, Thought Reform

Recently, a World Mission Society Church of God member named “ajumma” accused this site of persecuting the organization in a response to a recent article that outlines the WMSCOG’s previous failed doomsday predictions.  It is uncertain how presenting the facts documented in a court case is persecution but it is not the first time accusations such as these have been made in […]

The Seige Mentality

I recently came across an article written by a former Jehovah’s Witness where the author describes how the Watchtower Society uses a tactic known as the siege mentality to bond members closer together, demand extreme loyalty and devotion from its followers, and create an almost invincible barrier to opposition.  As I read the article, I could not ignore the similarities between what the author described in his […]

“The Church With A Small Number of Members Is The True Church” – Joo Cheol Kim

I love reading books by Joo Cheol Kim, Chief Pastor of the World Mission Society Church of God, and realizing that the statements he uses against other churches also apply to his own.  I’m surprised that WMSCOG members can read these contradictions and still remain a member of the organization.  If you’re a current member, I would appreciate hearing your […]

There has been a lot of discussion on this site and in the forum about families that have experienced tremendous loss because of a family member’s involvement in the World Mission Society Church of God.  WMSCOG members have of course denied accusations that the organization in any way encourages division among family members, while at the same time justifying the occurrence of such […]

In previous articles, we examined experts Robert J. Lifton and Steven Hassan’s destructive mind control group models, and found characteristics of both models present in our experience at the World Mission Society Church of God. In a book titled, “Twisted Scriptures” author Mary Alice Chrnalogar (former member of an abusive discipleship group) describes abusive churches often using “Anti-Intellect” teachings to disorient […]

“Take Back Your Life” by Janja Lalich and Madeline Tobias (p. 26-27).  [Reprinted with permission from the author and publisher.] In the medical profession, ethical contracts ensure that patients have given “fully informed consent”.  That is, if a doctor fails to inform a patient about the risks, side effects, and options for treatment, the uninformed patient is entitled to sue […]

In Part 1 of “Is The World Mission Society Church of God A Cult?”, we compared the World Mission Society Church Of God to Steve Hassan’s BITE Model in order to determine if the organization fits the definition of a cult.  We concluded that all of the components of Hassan’s BITE Model were present within the group.  But will the […]

I recently asked a World Mission Society Church of God member if she thought that the organization was a cult.  Here is her paraphrased response: The Church of God is not a cult.  If you look up the definition of a cult in the dictionary it says that a cult is group of people that gather to worship so I […]

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: Religious Freedom or Religious Fraud?

20 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?  […]
